We have been traveling to Tortola since the 1970's and taken many day sails around the BVI. This was our first time on the Kuralu and highly recommend it. It was very relaxing and Gary(the owner), his young son Noah, his first mate Kate and the family dog Grommet made sure our trip was as pleasant as possible. They serve... More

Went on a day sail on Kuralu to Jost Van Dyke. There were 8 in our party and one other couple on the boat. Plenty of room and comfy cushions for all of us on the bow where we could enjoy the gorgeous scenery. The crew brought us rum drinks and snacks. Had a lovely sail over to Sandy Spit... More

We had the best time sailing from Tortola to Jost Van Dyke with Kuralu! Extremely accommodating for our short day in port. Very happy we skipped the cruise excursion and went with Kuralu; lunch was also fantastic! We will definitely book again next time we're there!

We booked this as a private tour for 3 families traveling together aboard the Disney Fantasy as a port excursion. Went out with Darren and Dee on the Daydreamer to several spectacular snorkeling spots including some caves and Willy T's boat-bar. The Daydreamer was well kept and comfortable (yes, there's a bathroom). Darren and Dee were excellent captain/first mate and... More

We had an amazing time with Darren and Dee on a very nice catamaran (Daydreamer). They were VERY accommodating and made this a great excursion for our group. They gave great suggestions and altered the trip to satisfy everyone. They were conscientious of our time and made sure we were able to do as much as possible while getting us... More

A group of 14 adults and children booked this tour and it was the best tour ever. Our Captain Darren and the first mate Dee were amazing and gave a great tour sailing on the new catamaran Day Dreamer. We chartered independently but were on a cruise ship and our day was short. The organization of the tour was very... More

Gary and his crew did an excellent job and made for a great day of sailing and snorkeling. I would definitely sail with them again.

My wife and I (along with our four children ages 14, 12, 9 and 6) chartered the sister boat, Day Dream, for Christmas day. Three weeks later, I’m still raving about the great time we had and finally getting around to commenting on Tripadvisor. Sorry for the delay. Capt. Darren and mate Dee were excellent. The sailing and snorkeling were... More

Gary and his mate was hospitable and the wedding party had a good time. I did not appreciate Gary asking my ex-husband to steer the boat while Gary and his mate handled an easy task. I paid for this event and expected Gary and his mate to be the responsible crew. This was a disappointment. I want a crew who... More
