Kuralu Charters has two catamarans now and we sailed on the Day Dream. We found the Day Dream day cruise through reviews here on TA and we’re thankful we did. We came into Tortola as part of a Disney Fantasy cruise with the ship arriving at 7:30am and departing at 5:45pm. Our sail started at 9am and ended at 4pm... More

We recently visited Tortola and has the opportunity to experience two day sails with Darren and Dee on the “Day Dream”. The first day was a group charter to “Norman Islands and “The Indians”. There were only 12 passengers on the trip, which made for a nice spacious boat. Skipper Darren, was a wealth of information about the various islands... More

My husband and I booked a day sail on the Kuralu catamaran in Tortola, BVI this month. The Kuralu was in dry dock, so we were treated to a day sail on the Day Dream with Captain Dee and First Mate Kay. The snorkeling spots were spectacular - I saw many tropical fish and Kay personally took us on a... More

Gary along with Dee and Kate, provided a day full of fun complete with sailing, snorkeling and plenty of food and drink for all. The waters of these islands are some of the most beautiful... More

Wonderful Crew, great food and drinks, and they know best snorkeling spots in the BVI! We really felt very confortable the whole day. Gary should be your list when you visit Tortola.

Today I'm on my way back from an 8 day family holiday with my mother and brother to the British Virgin Islands (BVI). We have to say our most memorable event is the sailing. Handsome Captain Darren and Dee, his second in command, warmly welcomed us aboard their impressive 44ft sailing boat. We found both Darren and Dee to be... More

I was leery of booking a private day sail, on-line, sight unseen, in another country, based only on reviews of people I didn't know on TripAdvisor....but I am SO glad I did. This was by far the best day of our trip and a perfect way to spend my 40th birthday!! Our family of seven sailed to Tortola on the... More

Spent a fantastic day today with Darren and Dee! Visited 3 islands and did some great snorkeling. Both our hosts were fabulous and easy going. Safety was always a priority and they were very professional but were still able to have a good time. Darren had mad boat parking skills back at the dock. Super impressed! Would book again in...
