It was a beautiful day, sunny, just a slight breeze, we snorkled over... More

Great experience with captain Steve. He was fun, knowledgable and very experienced with the boat. No to mention a good cook for lunch! He was worth every moment and dollar spent. The day was gorgeous, couldn't have asked for more.

I can not say enough about the wonderful day we had on the Aristocat back in November. Capt Gillam and First Mate Emily were very friendly and knowledgeable about the areas we visited. They wasted no time getting us to the 3 x separate locations and setting anchor so that we could make the most of our day. Having been... More

After hunting aroun for day sail options, we called Captain Steve for a "spur of the moment" daysail with our three sons (ages 16-23). He has a 6-person minimum, so at first wasn't able to take us on the day we wanted, but when we offered to meet his 6-person minimum by covering the cost of the sixth seat he... More

My family (brother, parents, husband all ages 23-55) booked the snorkeling trip to experience sailing and snorkeling around BVI. We did a small family mini-reunion in Tortola, and we wanted to spend one day on a sailing cruise. When we arrived at the marina, the vessel was clean and great, and we were welcomed aboard. The crew was nice and... More

We took the Aristocat on two different occasions as a day sail. Both times were phenomenal. We had a young couple as the crew once and the owner the second time. You cannot go wrong with either. The food is delicious, the rum punch free-flowing and they only mock your music tastes a little (you can hook your iPhone up... More

It was a great experience all around. Captain Steve and first-mate Darren were friendly, knowledgeable, and lots of fun. Lunch was good, but of course the best part was making stops at three different reefs for some beautiful snorkeling and relaxation. Steve's music selection was great, too, and made for a nice change from all the "island music" everywhere else... More

This trip was worth every penny. With drinks, lunch, scuba gear, the fuel costs and their commotion, this was a great deal!!! We went to 3 different reefs and had a blast. Saw barracuda, puffer fish, sea turtles, jellyfish, parrot fish, huge tarpon, and tons of other tropical fish. The Skipper, Gilbo, and his first mate Emily were wry nice... More

We've taken quite a few catamaran day sails and we had a lovely time on this one. We spent this one out captain and first mate were very pleasant, competence and knowledgable. Lunch was good and then there's the beautiful waters, coral and marine life of the BVI. I hadn't been to the Indians in quite a few years and... More
