If there is one thing you do while on Peter Island / the BVI, DO the Silmaril Sail trip. This was one of the best parts / highlights of our trip. Jason and his second mate were amazing. They were so friendly and fun on our trip. My husband and I were honeymooning at Peter Island and were most looking forward to this trip after a recommendation from a coworker and it definitely did not disappoint. Jason took us to snorkel around the Indians. My husband had been snorkeling but I never have and was a little nervous at first. Jason took us under his wing and was the best tour guide - once I was in the water, I never felt uncomfortable and it was one of the coolest experiences we had done. He then took us to snorkel where the turtles were and helped my husband safely touch some jellyfish which was a neat experience as well. The sailboat was so relaxing and such a fun time. It was a good day getaway from Peter Island as well. We went to the famous Willy T's bar for lunch which was great as well. The whole trip surely did not disappoint to see some great views and experience different parts of the BVI. While I am writing this after Hurricane Irma and with Hurricane Maria on it's way, our heart breaks for the entire BVI area and hope that everybody will be up and running here in the coming months as quickly as possible. Jason and his mate were some of the friendliest people we met (along with the Peter Island Staff and entire BVI) and we hope that you can each recover very soon. We are praying for you all! As soon as Silmaril is up and running again, you won't want to miss this trip and it is definitely worth the investment. Thank you for a great trip and honeymoon, we had the time of our lives!

Twice now we have sailed with Jason and crew on multi-day outings and couldn't be happier. The focus is on the guests' enjoyment, whatever their tastes may be. Just sail and chill? No problem. Stop and snorkel? Done. Find the best party spot/restaurant/romantic beach? Easy peasy. The crew of Silmaril is courteous, professional, and humorous, and they're not bad in the kitchen, either. The excellent food is healthy and plentiful, so bring your appetite! We loved sailing to different islands, exploring hills and caves, finding quiet beaches and lively watering holes, every evening ending with a gorgeous sunset and a fabulous dinner. Looking forward to our next sail with Silmaril.

Our fun family of 7 had a wonderful and memorable day sailing to Norman Island. Thanks Captain Jason and First Mate Kaye so very much for an unforgettable adventure (and retrieving my snorkel & mask from the bottom of the sea was a remarkable free dive!)

The BVIs are absolutely incredible, and having Captian Jason as part of our vacation experience was priceless. Jason is a story-teller with an amazing accent, a tremendous sailor, an island expert, a great DJ, and provides first-class service. His ultimate goal is making sure he helps provide the experience you are looking for in the BVIs, and he far exceeded our expectations. From planning our daily destinations, finding the best place to relax and explore, making dinner recommendations (and actually making to-die-for potato wedges), to building a fire pit on a private beach, each day and night was unique and more than we could have imagined. If you are thinking of booking a trip with Captian Jason, stop thinking and just do it!

Jason and his wife Lindsay are the great people. They are so knowledgeable of the BVI's and offer an entertaining and enlightening tour from a locals perspective. If you appreciate supporting great entrepreneurs who work hard to show their clientele a fantastic experience, than you can go wrong with these guys!
