Guests aboard Pride the first week of February, 2013 -
Dear Susan and Jack,
What a great time. Thanks so much. It was truly a wonderful vacation.
I really appreciate all your hard work. I was so hesitant to go but it truly was far beyond my expectation. We both enjoyed ourselves so much. The knowledge of the area was amazing. Not to mention the food. We have been on several trips to the Caribbean but nothing like this.
I would love to get your recipes if you get a chance!
Thanks again, See ya soon hopefully,
A family of 6 that booked aboard Pride for April 7 - 14, 2012 called with the following comments:
"It was a great trip...phenomenal! Everyone was happy and the kids had a blast. Jack and Susan were extremely flexible, particularly Susan who had to deal with our very unusual preferences and 4-6 different needs at each meal. Jack is an outstanding Captain, sailor and person. His standard of safety was really appreciated. Jack and Susan were fun to be around, easy to talk to, and we really appreciated when they snorkeled with us, pointing out the interesting things. I would definitely recommend them."

"We just returned last night from the charter and I wanted to tell you what a fantastic time we had aboard Pride. The boat was beautiful and well maintained and the crew kept everything in order all the way down to the way the sheets on the beds felt and smelled!! The food was amazing and you can imagine that trying to please 6 people isn't easy but every meal pleased every single one of us every time. The presentation, the flavors, the variety all without a single hitch. Unfortunately we all gained weight during the trip.
Jack and Susan were great to be around. Susan was always there for us and even with some sketchy weather and waves, all the newcomers to sailing (everyone except me) felt safe with Jack as the Captain. The fun stuff like snorkeling and kayaking was available whenever we wanted and Jack and Susan always had ideas about what would be fun and where we could visit and where we could anchor or moor. The crew was fun to be with and talk to and the kids enjoyed being with them as well. Leaving the boat was a little sad as we will miss them.
All in all we had a wonderful time and next time we sail it will be with Jack and Sue."
