“Our Dreaming On vacation was better than we ever imagined it could be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

We just returned from a week aboard Dreaming On with Geoff and Iza cruising from St. Thomas to various islands in the BVI and finishing up in Soper's Hole in Tortola. For my wife and I and our two teenagers it was like being taken around the islands by good friends who want to show you everything they love about the place.

Dreaming On is a 47 foot catamaran with three cabins which mean't everyone had their own cabin and head making it very comfortable. The catamaran makes for a very stable ride, both underway and at anchor which reduces the chances of anyone being seasick if it does happen. The cockpit is very roomy and shaded which makes for wonderful meals outside as well as relaxing at anytime of day. The foredeck and trampoline between the hulls at the bow are also nice and roomy so laying out in the sun, or hanging from the hammock is very relaxing. We all liked sitting in the beanbag chairs on the trampoline while underway, a nice, relaxing breeze while watching the waves pass by. Did I mention toys? Dreaming On has two windsurfers, one that can become a paddle board, two kayaks, masks, snorkels, fins, noodles, etc. If they are missing anything, I can't think of it. The kids had a blast, they kayaked, snorkeled, went on the tube pulled by Geoff in the dinghy and windsurfed. We all had lots of relaxing time listening to music and reading, laying about.

Each day we visited a different area. Geoff and Iza know so much about the islands and their history and your itinerary is based on your wants, needs and the weather. I can't say enough good things about the entire trip.

The food onboard was excellent, fresh with great presentation and variety. We enjoyed every meal. Before your trip Geoff and Iza send you a questionnaire which covers everyone's preferences (food, drinks, allergies if any, etc.) and from there Iza develops a great menu. We enjoyed every meal and all were better than we found ashore.

I could go on but in summary, we all had an excellent time and the trip provided us with warm memories we will have with us forever. I would recommend Dreaming On and Geoff and Iza without hesitation to anyone and when we have the chance to return to the Caribbean we will take a charter with them again.

“Stress-Free Sailing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

Usually, we rent a bareboat for trips in the BVI, but we had our parents in town, and we were both really busy at work and didn't want the stress of provisioning/planning a course/cooking/etc.

Chartering Dreaming On was probably one of the best decisions we've ever made. Not only did Geoff & Iza tend to every need and want, but they were ideal company for us and our parents who, like Geoff & Iza, have travelled the world. In fact, the parents claimed that this was the highlight of their post-retirement world tour! Their only complaint was that the vacation had to end.

Having Geoff & Iza take care of everything really allowed us to hang out together and enjoy each others company without any stress at all. Additionally, we were able to helm and crew as much or as little as we wanted, so we still had the fun of sailing the boat.

“Excellence and first class people as well as service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2011

My wife and I have been married many years, but still consider ourselves young and fun. We recently celebrated an important wedding anniversary at Peter's Island and were looking for an intimate day on a nice boat, where we could relax and enjoy each other's company without worrying about lots of other people, our safety, or the quality of the boat or service. We checked with the staff at St. Peter's Resort, where we were staying, and they highly recommended Geoff and Iza, the skipper (husband) and mate (wife) of Dreaming On. When we arrived at the boat, they had champagne and finger foods for us to munch on, and the boat was spotless. Once we set out on our day voyage, it quickly became apparent to us that Geoff is an accomplished sailor and his knowledge of the Bristish Islands is exceptional. Geoff/Iza were very accomodating, and ready to take us wherever we wanted to go for the day within reach of getting back at a reasonable hour. Additionally, Geoff and Iza were not only charming and fun to talk to, but they were at ease with letting us have our privacy. If you want to enjoy their company, you won't find better people to share it with, but if you would rather have privacy, they will give you that, with great service to boot. They also know the places to go and stop off at depending on your interests. We did some snorkeling and saw some great fish and lots of colors. The boat is large enough for several people to be accomodated, and the price was reasonable too. We highly recommend not only St. Peter's Resort, but taking a day cruise on Dreaming On.
