“We recently completed a bucket-list trip with Mainsail Yacht Charters on the Port to Vino in the British Virgin Islands and to say the crew and experience exceed our expectations is an understatement. From the moment we met them the crew – Jeff and Caitlin, went above and beyond to ensure we were safe, very well-fed, and enjoyed every minute. They were very accommodating to our group of six’s dietary needs and when minor medical issues (sore muscles and one of our group had a cold) they did everything possible to minimize the impacts. Caitlin’s cooking was exceptional – we never had a bad meal. She cleaned our cabins daily and kept the boat tidy. When we snorkeled, Caitlin went with us on 2 occasions, partly as a guide and partly to help one of our party who was not a strong swimmer – her knowledge of the fish in the area was top notch and we all felt safe in the water with her. Jeff was a fantastic captain – we really enjoyed ‘story time with Capt. Jeff’, the afternoon’s Captain’s cocktails, and his recommendations on places to go and things to do. When he took us to shore or we swam / snorkeled, he always either kept on eye on us or came to get us promptly. We can’t thank them enough for making this experience what it was – a dream come true. The boat is amazing and very comfortable – they are getting a new boat in June and while I’m sure it will be great, there is nothing on this vessel to complain about. The beds were all very comfortable, the storage plentiful and while we didn’t have much wind for sailing, when the main and headsail went up, quietly gliding over the water with minimal sound was something us AZ peeps don’t get to experience much. Mainsail Yacht Charters was terrific to work with pre-charter – Kevin did a great job of finding the right boat and crew, keeping us up to date and making sure all the questions we had were answered.
Overall this was a bucket list item that Kevin, Caitlin and Jeff helped make one of the most memorable tips of our lifetime.” – BD – PORT TO VINO, April 2023
