“insman1529”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Wife and I booked a short notice trip with the help of Yoli (Yoli's Bar). Jeff arranged a great sailing trip for us with two snorkel spots that were as good as any dive trip we've ever taken. Thanks to Jeff, Sal & Burt. We will be back and go easy on the rum punch next time.

“You will have an amazing time with Daytripper!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

We sailed with Jeff on sunset cruise, with just one other couple, and had such a great time we ended up taking a 4 hour sailing trip with him again, just the two of us! No matter the issues that arose (rain, and a broken boat which could have cancelled our trip out) Jeff always found a solution and was always so accommodating. I really felt like we could have been visiting family as it was so comfortable being out with him. On the sunset cruise, he moved around the rain and took us to a lovely bar we never would have been able to visit. Plus, the pictures were just beautiful. On our sailing trip, his boat was out of commission and he ended up borrowing a neighbor's so we wouldn't have to cancel- very accommodating! We spend almost 5 hours on the water, and he took us to two snorkeling areas where we were the only ones there. The water was amazing, and he really knows so much about Placencia! He had a meal ready for us that day, and was even able to please this picky eater! We really didn't have to worry about anything when we were out with him. What a wonderful day!

“Best Sail/Snorkel trip ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

If you want to have an amazing memorable trip go with Jeff and Daytripper ! We went out 3 times in Jan 2012 and each time was a perfect day. Jeff has intimate knowledge of the local waters and can provide the perfect spot depending on weather conditions. Jeff uses well trained local guides that only add to the experience (Thanks Tony & Burt !). The guides knowledge of the names of fish and coral types is very helpful. Lunch for the day is from Yoli's and is a delicious meal to be looked forward to after the first snorkel. After lunch and a short sail to a second site it is back in the water for more beautiful fish and coral. Plentiful cold drinks in the cooler to keep you refreshed. We were fortunate on 2 of our trips to have Jeff's daughter Sal along who is a true delight to spend the day with. Sal is very helpful with the sailing duties and chores onboard. We felt like family after the first day and the bond only grew with each trip. We are already booked to go back to Placencia in Feb 2013 and plan on many wonderful days aboard Jeff's catamaran "Lill".

“Daytripper is the trip to do in Placencia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

We did the sunset tour with Jeff in December 2011. I highly reccommend this to anyone travelling to Placencia. You need to get down to Yoli's bar on the south side of town. My wife and I were travelling with our 9 month old, who Jeff was more than happy to take off our hands so we could enjoy the views. It was like going on a tour with a friend you have known your whole life.
I'm back in October this year and look forward to booking some different tours on the Catamaran and having a couple of beers with Jeff. You can get hold of him through Facebook if you want to book in advance. You can go on tours out to the cayes or fishing too.

“Cool and relaxed cruising, not to be missed....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

I've been out with most of the over the water operations running out of Placencia over the years, from the most expensive, down to the cheapest. If you want a relaxed day out with a knowledgeable and easygoing guy then this is the boat to be on, no question.
Luckily, you have a choice of places to go not far from Placencia, Jeff will cruise you about while you sit back and sip your cocktail, then pick the best spot for you to go on a guided swim if you want, which you should, it's great.
The lagoon is an awesome sight at sunset, which he can also take you out to enjoy in his cat. All trips leave from Yoli's Bar at the end of the peninsular, past the Shell gas station, just ask anyone for directions, it'll be worth it.
