Second time on Kuralu for a day sail out of Sopers to Norman Island and the WillieT. Gary(Captain) and Kate(1st Mate) do a great job of managing the boat and making you feel safe and welcome. It was windy so we quickly got to Norman, snorkeled, had lunch at the WT. Another snorkel stop and a sail back. They supply... More

We booked a day sail with Gary and we were very pleased with the whole experience. He and Kate were the perfect hosts. Patient to explain everything to expect on our sail day. They also were very attentive to our needs. We sailed out of Sopers Hole on the West End. Our 1st stop was Sandy Spit. I swam in... More

We absolutely loved our experience with Kuralu! We had Captain Dee and First Mate Kate charter us on the Daydream and they were the best crew we could have asked for! They were beyond friendly, helpful, informative, and fun! We were able to ask questions and chat easily with them throughout the entire trip. We had a group of 14... More

Spent a day with Gary while on a cruise stop in BVI! Our group of 14 (ages 14 - 78) loved the day relaxing with family on the private charter! Gary and Kate were wonderful and gracious hosts; knowledgable of sailing and the area, fantastic rum punch and wonderful lunch! Being a private charter, we planned our day with Gary... More

We chartered this catamaran for our family of 12 over the holidays for a day of sailing and snorkeling and we did not go wrong. The crew was very knowledgeable and the vessel was beautiful. We snorkeled and saw some amazing sea creatures. The crew took very good care of all of us from food, drink, equipment, etc. Would book... More

I have had the lovely opportunity to go on day sails on both Kuralu (out of West End) and Day Dream (Village Cay, Road Town). Both are beautiful boats with knowledgeable Captains and great crews. The lunch they serve is delicious (as is the rum punch)! I've gone on several day sails out of the BVI and this is my... More

We had a great time. Crew fun, boat was nice, good snorkeling. Stopped at Norman Island for lunch. The beach there was beautiful and the food at the restaurant was very good, though be prepared for the cost. Was pricey ($100 for three with only one alcoholic beverage) but was very good. Did get started about 30 minutes late and... More

Gary was great to work with, coming up with a solution to accommodate 36 of us to sail and snorkel for the day. Great, clean boats, great service from crew, great rum punch and other drinks and snacks made for a great day.
