Those of us of a certain generation grew up laughing at the crew and passengers of the S.S. Minnow whose three hour tour got extended (for many years of syndication). This was not that cruise. Those of us of a more recent generation may recall a withered, bearded Tom Hanks shouting across the waves in desperation, "Wilson! Wilson!" This was not that cruise either.
Certainly, our cruise with Captain Wilson was not without humor. He had us four passengers chuckling with his specially recorded introduction to Deja Blue and with his whimsical telling of island history. We had no desperate moments under the captain's care, but dramatic views from the water (and under the water) abounded as he brought us from one lovely island to the next. If we were ever unsure of where we wanted to go next, Captain Wilson offered up tempting options with enough information for us to choose. We had a wonderful time on (and in) the water.
The captain picked us up promptly when and where he said he would, and expeditiously took care of any customs forms that were needed for cruising in British waters. He shared his knowledge of the islands and their history as we cruised along.
If you find yourself in the Virgin Islands, treat yourself to a day on the water with the captain. I doubt you will regret it. If the captain's name has slipped your mind, gaze across the water from your patch of sand... Wilson!! ... Wilson!! ... Wilson!!!
