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

Our 3-generation, 10 person family chartered Kuralu for a day sail from Sopers' Hole Marina, West End, Tortola, BVI. Our ages were 14-73 and all were able to participate in the amazing adventures that Capt. Gary and crew Kate made possible for us. The hospitality, food, drink were excellent. We left at 9 a.m. and returned @ 4 p.m. and... 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...

We sailed on the Norwegian Escape and had a shorter day ashore. Based on recommendations we chose to do a snorkeling trip with Kuralu and it was the right decision! We went to Norman Island and snorkeled at the Caves and then to the Indians. Captain Darren and Dee made us so comfortable and really made this trip great! One... More

We had an excellent sail today with Capt. Gary and Kate. Beautiful day and easy sail to Norman Island and the Indians. We snorkeled near the caves on Norman and it was very good. We went to lunch at Pirates Bight. Again good meal, excellent atmosphere. After lunch we went to the Indians for what I think is the best... More

What an incredible day aboard the Day Dream. You can tell they honestly love what they do, and it comes out in service. This went down as one of the best days of our trip. So many THANK YOUs to our captain & first mate!

Due to some unforeseen flight issues our group of 8 missed half of our charter day and the Captain was kind enough to still take us out for the remaining half of the day. Our catamaran (Day Dream) was beautiful and well kept. We were provided with a wonderful spread of food and drinks, including a homemade chocolate birthday cake... More

We sailed with Darren and Dee on the perfectly named "Day Dream" catamaran on a day sail from Road Town to Norman Island, Pelican Rock and the Indians. Great sailing and fantastic snorkeling, lots of conversation aided by Darren's terrific soundtrack over the Bose speakers, and just all-around-happiness. Highly recommended!

We (4 adult couples) spent the day with Captain Darren and First Mate Dee. They were a blast!! The lunch was enjoyable and the rum punch even better. They allowed us as much time as we needed at the different sites. It was the best day of our trip. Highly recommend!
