“The Perfect Day!”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

Me and my husband rented a 29" center console and had Curtis as our captain. It was such a perfect day. He customized the trip to do exactly what we wanted to do. I used to live in the Virgin Islands and I really wanted to see things and places that I had not before...Curtis took us to many off the beaten path spots! We started at Diamond Reef on Great Camanoe - this is honestly the BEST snorkeling I have seen in all the Virgin Islands! SO much live coral, I didn't think this still existed there! We then did The Baths, of course, always perfect. We ate lunch at Saba Rock by the Bitter End on Virgin Gorda, it was AMAZING food! I had the perfect veggie, quinoa and black bean burger. We even saw dolphins between Saba Rock and Necker Island! It was a perfect day with a perfect captain. Curtis knew everything about these islands and was so nice and fun to be with. We will absolutely call them when we return to Tortola.

“Great captain and mate”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Great power boat trip, Take the 40 foot boat. 4 repeat 4 engines to get to all the islands FAST and in style. Don't waste all your day on a slow catamaran , get to all the sites fast and with the best captain around.

“Awesome Experience!”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

We rented the 31" center console for a full day and had Moses as our captain. We were a group of 5, and we had an AWESOME time! We were picked up promptly at 9AM at the West End dock on Tortola. The boat had plenty of room for all of us and then some. The boat came with a fully loaded cooler (incl, beer, water, sodas, pain killers), comfortable seating, and a good stereo system. We were able to see literally every single one of the British Virgin Islands. We stopped at The Baths (snorkeling & sightseeing), Bitter End Yacht Club (lunch), a trip around Necker Island, Soggy Dollar Bar (drinks), and finally at Willy T's (more drinks & some memorable scenery.
While a full day including a captain is a little pricey, you defintely get what you pay for. The boat was clean, fast, well appointed, and comfortable. Moses was a great captain, funny & knowledgeable. I highly recommend using C&D if you're ever in BVI.

“Perfect day out”
Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

We are staying on Tortola and like to take a couple of boat trips to explore the other islands. Yesterday we use C&D for the first time and were thrilled. Dean upgraded us to larger boat due to a couple of mechanical issues with the original all this never affected us as he made the call as soon as we arrived at the dock. Stocked is up with snorkeling gear, drinks and snacks- included special snacks for the kids! We spent a fabulous day on Midnight Express with Travis. He is a lovely young man and was keen to show us all the best parts of the islands. We did the baths then over to Norman Island, snorkeling at the caves And the the best lunch ever at Pirates restaurant. ( see other review) over to Willy T for a quick drink and jump from the boat, finally Foxys and the Soggy Dollar bar. Amazing day, great company. We will definitely use C&D again.
