This was our 5th trip on the Moondance and it may have been our favorite! Where do we begin....first, it is always an effortless process to book a charter and that's really when your holiday starts. Sailing with Iain is always fun. He is an accomplished captain and more importantly, a very patience instructor. We are just beginning to learn... More

Living and working in St Maarten definitely has its perks! This past weekend I managed to join in on a charter with the Moondance. What a relaxing way to spend my Sunday. Moondance comes with a fully stocked cooler and a neat BBQ on her stern. Bring your meat along and Garth will grill it to perfection and have it... More

Hands down the BEST day of our visit to St. Maarten. (And that says a lot since there were many amazing days on the island!) Garth and Bobby are enthusiastic, experienced sailors. Sailing with them was fun and incredibly relaxing. We chartered their Catalina 36’ sailboat to avoid the crowds and boy did they deliver! We spent the day sailing... More

A truly world class day: we rented "Moondance" a 36 foot Catalina from 0900 to 1:00 and had a truly world class day. The boat was perfect for what we wanted, big enough to handle the open Caribbean, yet small enough for two teenage boys to do all the steering, sail handling, anchoring and mooring. Of course, they were expertly,... More

A great charter with Garth- he is an excellent captain and sailor! Have sailed a number of boats in the islands, this Catalina 36 is one of the best, a solid boat that is well maintained. We had plenty of wind and 6 foot waves the first day out and Moondance handled the weather with ease. The boat was very... More

Had an opportunity to join a group of friends for a daylong sailing trip from Simpson Bay, St Maarten to Anguilla and back. The day was wonderful. We sailed on the Moon Dance, a 36 foot sloop. The seven of us and the skipper Garth fit on the boat comfortably. The group had been through a basic keel boat course... More

We came to St. Martin to visit friends, go to the beach, relax. Seeing all the lovely sailing boats we were looking for a day charter, which was a bit difficult since most agents do weekly charters, and if on a daily basis only huge boats with crew. Garth and his Moon dance were just perfect for us, we could... More

My wife and I just returned from another great trip to St. Martin. I have sailed with Garth on Moon Dance before, in fact this was my third trip well offshore from St. Martin aboard this well maintained and sturdy 36 foot Catalina sailing vessel. But this was my wife's first trip aboard, so I must comment on Garth's wisdom... More

None of our family has ever been sailing. We charted a day sail with Garth and it was a day we'll never forget. We were on a cruise and were at St. Maarten for the day. Garth picked us up at Doc Maarten in a dingy and took us out to his wonderful sailboat. It easily accommodates about 6. Our... More

My husband and I (along with 4 new-found-friends from our hotel, Royal Palm) chartered the sail boat, Moondance and had a great time! Ian was our Captain and "Walkie" was his 1st mate and they did a great job! We were out there from 9am-5pm. I just wanted to say that we really enjoyed the use of the boat, Ian's... More
