Our day sail with Kuralu was my favorite day of our recent stay on Tortola. We took the trip to Jost Van Dyke which stopped at a few different beautiful locations and ended at the Soggy Dollar Bar. The lunch provided on board was delicious and the service on the boat was great. We traveled with our four year old... More

Whether a family, a couple, or solo, you'll love a day trip on the Kuralu. Captain Gary keeps a great, clean boat, provides delicious food and beverages, and makes sure everyone has a fun, relaxing time. First mate Oliver is friendly and helpful, and Gary's dog Grommet is the ultimate sea dog. The snorkeling at Norman (Treasure) Island is fantastic... More

We spent two memorable days aboard Kuralu with Gary, Oliver and Grommet the dog -- snorkeling, swimming and relaxing under the sails. They took very good care of us. Heartily recommended.

Had a really great time sailing with Oliver and Captain Gary, a nice guy originally from Nova Scotia, and three sweet couples from Spokane and Coueur d'Alene. Had fun snorkeling and going to the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke. Excellent lunch. One of the highlights of our trip!

My husband and I went on a day sail with Kuralu to Jost Van Dyke out of West End Tortola. Gary, Oliver, and Noah were great hosts. It was really nice to just spend a few hours actually sailing and laying in the sun on their catamaran. The stops at Sandy Spit and White Bay were very nice as well,... More

Gary, Oliver and the friendly dog, Grommet, made our sailing day amazing. We appreciated the wonderful food, care to help us find super snorkelling sites, and relaxed atmosphere. It was our second visit to the Kuralu, which we highly recommend.
