This might have been the highlight of our group's trip. Capt. Gary and Abby were both very inviting and made you feel at home. We sailed to Sandy Spit and White Bay on July 28, 2015. The rum punch and beer kept flowing, which made our group very very happy. Grommet was an added bonus, most precious and friendly dog.... More

We sailed with Capt Gary, Abby and Grommet over to the Caves at Norman and the Indians yesterday. From the moment we stepped on board we had an excellent experience. We motored upwind to Norman where we snorkeled around the Caves before heading to Willy T's for lunch. Then moved out to the Indians for some even better snorkeling. While... More

My family had a great day trip with Gary. He is very familiar with the area and was a lot of fun. His boat has plenty of room for a big group and he and his staff were great. I would definitely take another trip on Kuralu.

Our group of 7 (4 early teenagers, 2 adults and 1 senior) sailed with Gary on the Kuralu during a recent Caribbean Cruise. It was one of the most enjoyable experiences of our entire cruise. I found the Kuralu through TripAdvisor and am so grateful that we booked the sailing trip. Gary and Jesse were extremely friendly and accommodating. The... More

This was one of the highlights of our Tortola visit. Gary and crew are friendly, service is great, and the beaches, sailing and snorkeling are fantastic.

Kuralu and its owner, Gary, were recommended from a friend of mine here at home. I contacted Gary by email weeks before our trip and he was absolutely fantastic to work with in planning our day sail trip. We had my wife, two teen daughters and their two friends. The kids had heard about Norman/Treasure Island, and the WIllie T... More

Excellent trip. Gary and Abbie were wonderful hosts. The scenery was beautiful and the time spent on the boat, snorkeling at the Caves and lunching at Willy T's was awesome.

My wife and I booked a day sail with Gary during our recent cruise to Tortola. Our intention was to get out to White Bay on the Island of Jost Van Dyke. The excursion through the cruise line was sold out so I researched a private company to sail us out there. What an absolute blessing in disguise. We had... More
