Met Dave at the coffee shop on the upper deck at the Marina. Dave took us out to his sailboat in... More

Ten of us chartered OH BE JOYFUL during the first week in February while on a cruise. It was a great decision. We sailed for several hours in both the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. We then anchored in between 2 of the islands where we swam and snorkeled for several more hours. It was a glorious day and... More

We had a great time with Captain Dave, Jocelyn and Sophia. There's nothing like hanging out on the front of a sailboat in the Carribbean! The food and drinks were really lovely, especially the home-made guacamole! The snorkeling was in fairly rough water unfortunately, but it turned out fine. Everything we could have desired from a sailing trip!
