Johnson charter aboard Paradise

Upon retuning from our trip on Paradise, we were useless! Once aboard Paradise, it was apparent that anything and everything we needed was taken care of and/or provided. At first, it was an adjustment to receive such pampering. Our beds were made during our 3-5 course breakfast with Bernie’s double filtered coffee and Ruthie’s fresh fruit, meat and egg creations with warm fresh bread. Then we would set off on our adventure for the day, usually at places to which we had never been – even after 4 previous BVI sailing trips. On shore, taxi’s, gear and dinghy shuttling was all arranged for us in advance with German-like efficiency and with folks that Bernie and Ruthie have long standing successful relationships with. Upon our return to Paradise, dinner was in motion and was always a great culinary expedition with wine, appetizers, curry sauces, fresh ingredients and fantastic deserts. Apres dinner was a comical event including great conversation on deck with the hosts over after-dinner drinks! Sleeping onboard Paradise I can guarantee is less rocky that all the other boats because of their skill in locating the best anchor, mooring spots throughout the islands. Bernie’s knowledge of the system and how to avoid unnecessary fees saved us hundreds as opposed to when we charter our own Bareboat. Their decades of knowledge and passion for what they do is very inspirational. Getting to know Ruthie and Bernie is truly a fresh breath of air. We really treasured our time and ability for pure relaxation with Bernie and Ruthie and would highly recommend a stay onboard Paradise: we’d love to join them again in the future!
