We had a full day sail on the Lionheart last week while visiting Tortola, BVI. The catamaran was very spacious, clean and attractive. The captain, Steve, and co-captain, Darren, were skilled, smart, professional and personable. The sail left at 9:15 a.m. and returned at 5:00 p.m. We stopped at three snorkeling locations where we saw various forms of sea life.... More

We sailed with Lionheart on a charter with 12 others from our cruise ship while in Tortola on Oct 23rd. We had an excellent time, great food (hot dogs, breads, cold cuts, deviled eggs, yummy yum potato salad, delicious slaw & other items I can't recall right now as I didn't eat them), drinks (rum 'punch', beer, sodas & awesome...

My wife and I enjoyed an incredible day at sea with Stephen and Darren, with three snorkel sites, great weather, and a very good lunch and beverage spread. We've done similar snorkel excursions elsewhere in the Caribbean, and this was one of the best experiences, by far. Crew and facilities were both professional, and the sites were great for seeing...

This was the best snorkeling, and the best catamaran I've been on. I've done 4 Caribbean cruises, lots of snorkeling, and this was my first time visiting Tortola. We were taken to two different locations for snorkeling. Both were very different, but just as incredible. The first had a higher volume of fish I've ever seen before in one place.... More

We enjoy doing private charters when we vacation so we are not crowded and can go where and when we want. We chartered with Stephen and went to some great snorkeling spots. He and his first mate Darren, made us a wonderful lunch. It was way more food than we could possibly eat. We had a great day of snorkeling... More

From the moment we arrived on the pontoon Steve and Darren made us feel welcome, comfortable and completely at home. Lionheart is a lovely catamaran and easily accommodated the 10 on our trip. Steve gave us a safety talk and brief overview of the day before we set off. There was no wind on that day so we had a... More

I am not at all surprised to receive this review. This 'lady' was a complete pain in the back -side from the moment she stepped on board, she did indeed demand, not ask for coffee, I do not serve coffee on board and I suggested that she may wish to purchase one from the local coffee shop, a 1 minute...

My laffer hurts. We had non stop fun from the moment we left the dock at Road Town until we came back later this evening. Steve and Darren are beyond competent sailors, but they are also solid, fun loving, guys and they showed us a great time. They know every rock and cove and are not shy about dolling out... More

We went to three beautiful snorkeling spots including the Indians and Norman Island. Captain Steve and Darren were the perfect narrators and hosts. They supplied more beverages: rum punch, beers, sodas and waters than we could drink. They prepared a scrumptious lunch of several salads tuna, bean, slaw, potato, lunch meats, cheeses, breads, hot dogs and the best deviled eggs.... More
