Kuralu is a 50’ Catamaran offering the best daysail trips in the BVI to stunning islands and beautiful snorkeling spots. Sail in complete comfort to Sandy Spit, White Bay at Jost Van Dyke, the Indians and Caves at Norman Island. Snorkeling equipment, open bar and a gourmet lunch is included. No overcrowding and private groups a specialty. Safe for children, plenty of shade and a freshwater shower. Voted number 1 for a reason!

My beloved and I sailed with Gary, Oliver and Grommet last week and had a great day. Sandy Spit, fabulous lunch, White Bay all with snorkeling, swimming, sailing and cold beverages. I recommend!

We booked a day sail with Gary to Jost Van Dyke and had a spectacular day! We left on time and spent the whole day on the water. It is clear that Gary knows how to handle a boat, and has an intimate knowledge of the waters in which he sails. Gary, Oliver, and Grommit were all a pleasure to... More

Had a great day with Gary, Oliver, Grommit and the other 8 guests. First class hospitality and a great way to spend a day whilst in the BVI.

We were a private group renting a house and booked the boat for some snorkeling and a trip to Jost Van Dyke. Gary knows his stuff and we bombarded him with sailing/BVI questions virtually all day! Not only is Gary passionate about what he's doing, he seemed to truly enjoy sharing his lifestyle with us. Oliver was a great host,... More

We sailed with Gary and Oliver in February 2015. We did the trip to Jost Van Dyke and had a wonderful time! Water was really choppy and Gary gave us the option of trying to snorkel to Sandy Spit or to go somewhere a little more protected from the wind. We all opted for the second choice and had a... More

If there's a better daysail/snorkeling trip in the BVI, please tell me. Gary Cotreau and first mate Oliver were great hosts. Very attentive. constantly tending to comfort, thirst and hunger. Super lunch! Nice day of snorkeling at Norman Island and The Indians. Could not have asked for a better day.

We did a day trip with Gary, Grommet (the coconut retriever), and Gary's mate Oliver, while we were in Tortola on a Windstar Cruise. One of our shipmates made the arrangements in advance and several other couples joined in. The day promised to be much more reasonable and less "controlled" than the excursions offered by Windstar and we were pleased... More

Went sailing on Kuraloo. We set sail from the West End, Sopers Hole, and motored out until Gary Cottreau, could find wind to begin our cruise to Normal Island. We sailed past St John, a US island that is 60% national park, so has minimal construction. A crew member offered us water, soda, beer or rum punch throughout the entire... More

My wife and I took my parents out on Kuralu and had a wonderful day around JVD. Gary was an excellent skipper and host, making a great team with his mate Oliver. The best thing so us, having sailed ourselves in the past, was that Gary had the sails up and motor off as much as he could. We've been... More
