We recently did the BVI day trip with New Horizons aboard the Breakaway 2. John and John were our captains and they were both an extreme pleasure to be around. They were both extremely knowledgable about all the areas we visited and their personalities were fun and down to earth. They made our trip as fun as it was! We... More

Best BVI we've taken in the past 10 years while on the island. Short of chartering a personal boat and captain, this is the next best choice. We signed up on-line for the 10% discount. At $135 per person, it was a huge bargain! Our captain was Matt and he was friendly, knowledgeable and fun. I felt safe with him... More

We were actually going to go on the "bad kitty" for our second time, but then we come across this one that was supposed to be on the "break away", thought it looked like a nice size boat. And being a that it was about the same price, we figured we would try it. I was also told the boat... More

This trip was recommended to us by one of our waitresses who said it was the best day and she was right! We did the day trip to the baths on Virgin Gorda, snorkeling at Diamond Reef, and the beach on Norman Island. We had a blast with John and John from beginning to end! The boat ride from each...

The cost is high, in my view, and for an all-day trip, no lunch is provided. Breakfast was a muffin and some sliced up fruit with your choice of juice or soda (no coffee for a 7 am departure time). For lunch, they take your order and bring you to this restaurant, but you pay your own way. Not only... More

Thank you for your review. We are always looking for ways to improve our tours. We are sorry that you found the fee too high. The costs of operating and running boats of this size are built into the price we charge and we find our rates are comparable to other vessels offering a similar tour. As for the itinerary,... More

My girlfriend and I went on a Valentines day sail that left at 4:45 P.M. that took us to Christmas Island. We were greeted with Champagne and strawberry's and with salmon/caviar hors d’oeuvres. Then a serve-yourself buffet dinner includes mahi mahi, Caribbean sweet & sour chicken, peel & eat shrimp, Caesar salad, fusilli pasta salad, green bean salad, fresh breads,... More

We wanted to say thank you for a great sunset cruise. We enjoyed our time with the crew Captain John, Sarah and Nate. We had a very relaxing trip and the food was very good. We felt at home and enjoyed meeting all the people on the sail boat. Thanks for a great evening.
