“Great Sailing, Food, Wine, Captain and Crew!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Captain Bob and crew were great hosts and really made you feel at home and comfortable from the get go. Then all the great features of the custom built sailing vessel combined with spectacular food was just the right thing for my wife and I.
So when making a choice for your perfect sailing day in the BVI's I highly recommend Sail Bravura.
Skipper Bob got it just right!

“Great Day on the Water”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

While vacationing on Virgin Gorda, our family of 7 adults and 3 children decided to spend a day sailing. We chose the Bravura and we are so glad we did. We stopped to snorkel and at a small beach which was great. Skip Robert prepared a great lunch for all of us when we got back on board. After lunch we sailed for the rest of the afternoon. The conditions were perfect and the whole experience was amazing. It was definately a trip all of us will remember for a long time. Skip Robert and his helper Johnnie were so nice and I would highly recommend this trip to anyone.

“Another fabulous day sailing in Virgin Gorda”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We sailed again with Captain Bob on the Bravura and had a marvelous time. We sailed for about three hours, then snorkled for a hour while Capt. Bob prepared a delicious lunch for us. Finally a three hours sail back to dock. It was another fabulous day in Virgin Gorda. Capt Bob had plenty of food and drinks for all. He took care of all our needs. IT was a very memorable day. A great value. Will definately do it again when we return.

“Exhilarating!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Sailing on the Bravura with Captain Bob and his deckhand John was exhilarating and a highlight of our family trip to Virgin Gorda. Our children, ages 17 and 22, agree. We had a magnificent sail from Little Dix to anchor off Cooper Island. Our family enjoyed snorkeling off Cistern Point, explored the small shops at Machioneel Bay, and then had a scrumptious lunch on deck. At the end, he presented us with a family photo. Bob was fun, generous and full of terrific sailing stories, a wealth of information. We enjoyed the sailing so much that instead of returning to our drop off point at Little Dix, we sailed longer back to the boat’s berth at Leverick Bay and took a cab for a scenic ride back to Little Dix. It was worth every minute. It was a day of new sights and experiences for us and we loved it! We’d do it again. Thanks, Bob!!

“Sailing on Bravura”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

My wife and I sailed with Capt. Bob during our Virgin Gorda stay in late November. As others have said, Bob is a great guy and excellent chef. We elected to do the extended half day sail and opted to not stop to snorkel thereby increasing the sailing time. Bob generously let me do virtually all of the sailing which was wonderful. We ended the sail by picking up a mooring off Prickly Pear island where Bob proceeded to prepare and serve a delicious lunch. Bravura is a beautiful, solid, well maintained boat. Bob said he had it designed and built to cross oceans and that shows. We are looking forward to our next sail on Bravura with Capt. Bob.
