Gary runs a very professional sail. The morning started promptly at 9:30. We visited two spots- one for snorkeling and a stop at Jost Van Dyke. Lunch is served on-board and homemade- an excellent selection of quiches, salad, french bread, meats and cheeses, and a variety of beverages offered all day. In between, you are able to relax on cushions... More

After researching day sail options, my wife decided that Gary and the Kuralu was the best choice for exploring the water around Tortola and boy was she right. It was an immaculate day, beautiful weather, great water, stunning beaches (White Bay on Jost Van Dyke is picturesque) and wonderful people. Gary and Oliver (and Grommet for that matter) made the...

We had a great time on the Kuralu! Gary, Oliver and Grommet were awesome hosts and we had the best day! Definitely worth checking out if you are in the BVIs!

The Kuralu experience is truly awesome. The trip involves a full day on the sea (9.30-4) with two snorkeling spots, lunch and all day drinks.This was our first time snorkeling and having the opportunity to try snorkeling at two spots helped us get used to the experience and actually enjoy it. The captain (Gary) and his assistant (Oliver) were around... More

We spent the day with Gary, Oliver and Grommet while staying in the BVIs. We are a family of four with boys that are 17 and 14. Great trip. Gary knows how to do it right. Made us feel right at home. We all had a great day relaxing, eating, drinking a few Rum Punchs, snorkeling and just taking in... More

We joined 6 other guests for a total of 8 for a day sail to Norman Island and the Indians. It was a fantastic day with a very experienced captain. It was the 1st mates, Oliver, first day on the job and Gary provided clear instruction to him that kept it all running very smoothly. Could not have asked for... More

We made a last minute decision for a day trip and chose the Kuralu. Definitely the right decision. There were no other customers so the four of us had the boat to ourselves. Gary and Edward went out of their way to make us comfortable and made certain that we were never thirsty. We were all novice snorkelers, but by... More

Our group of 6 spent 2 days with Gary, Edward and Grommet (dog) on the Kuralu. We never had to go long without a Presidente or Rum Punch and never felt rushed at any of the stops. Thanks for a great trip.

Kuralu Private Catamaran Charters was a fantastic experience snorkeling in Tortola! The Captain and First Mate were very accommodating and attentive to all our needs. We went to the caves at Norman Island, Indians rock formation and stopped for lunch in a wonderful cove called the Bight at Norman Island. I would highly recommend this charter for new and experience... More

My friends and husband and I chartered a trip on the Kuralu with Gary. We had a fantastic experience from the moment we started our journey. Gary and Ed were very hospitable, kept the drinks coming, good sailing music and of course Gary's dog Grommet was a fun addition to our trip. Our First stop was Sandy Spit where we... More
