We just got back from a week on Virgin Gorda with our entire family, 12 people in total, including our six month old and two children under 4. We had a great time sailing and snorkeling and had lunch on Cooper Island. The La Boheme is a beautiful sailboat with lots of space and was a great way to see the Islands from the water. The boat is family owned and you can tell. The captain and crew took great care of us and we would most certainly book the La Boheme again.

Thank you for your compliments! We are pleased to hear that you and your family enjoyed the day sailing in the BVI. Thank you for sharing your time with La Boheme Charters. It is rewarding to hear that the crew of La Boheme took such good care of your family. We are a "family run" business and really do take great pride in our charter business. We can't wait to sail with you again next time!

Our family of three (with 9 year old son) had a spectacular day on La Boheme. The boat was simply beautiful with plenty of room to spread out. Captain Vince and First Mate Nick were terrific hosts and looked out for our every need. Once the motor was turned off and we were sailing, what was beautiful became magical. We sailed to Cooper's Island for snorkeling (saw two green turtles as soon as we entered the water) and a great lunch at the beach-side restaurant. We then sailed to the Dog Islands for more snorkeling. The reefs and fish were terrific.

We plan on returning next year especially because of Captain Vince. He made us feel right at home so we relaxed like we haven't for a long time.

Thank you!

We are glad to hear that you had a nice sail with Vince and Nick to Cooper Island with La Boheme Charters. Cooper Island is always a perfect destination. Spotting turtles and other marine life is always exciting while snorkeling. We are also very happy to hear that the trip was a success for your son. Thank you for choosing to sail with La Boheme Charters and we hope to see you again next year!

After speaking with Clinton, we decided on a full day charter for our family of seven: mom, dad, 7 year old, 2 year old, and 3 senior citizen grandparents. I was initially unsure of how things would go with our two year old, but he was just fine on the boat and enjoyed every minute.

Vince and Chris were amazing. Not only were they incredibly professional and adept, but they made us very comfortable and were very informative about the boat and nearby islands. When Henry started to have a 'moment,' (he is firmly in the 'terrible twos' phase), one of them would discretely step in and distract him from his tantrum. They clearly could have ignored his tantrums and still provided excellent service, but they stepped right in to help. It was amazing! Vince let him' pretend' to drive the boat while Chris would carry him around the boat and let him 'help' with sailing tasks. They were both amazingly patient with my seven year old as well, helping her spot turtles and pointing out the best snorkeling spots.

While this was an absolutely incredible 'family' experience, it was also quite posh and comfortable (the two don't normally go together!). We were well stocked with drinks, cocktails, snacks, etc. there was even a hot artichoke dip to enjoy on the last bit of the trip back to the island. It was really lovely and I cannot recommend it enough.

Our trip was: cooper island for snorkeling and lunch (we snorkel end a few spots here) and then a long stop at the dogs for snorkeling. The sailing in between snorkeling was great and the boat is simply beautiful.

One last thing: my mom is disabled and walks (slowly) with leg braces and a cane. She did great on the boat, and the crew was very careful and attentive when helping her on and off. She was so happy to be able to come along and loved every minute of the trip!

Husband and I spent the day on the La Boheme with another couple (on a Join In). It was a perfect day. The ship was lovely, the water was great, snorkeled and saw fish, turtle, etc. We went to Cooper Island and ate lunch which was good as well. The Mango Mohito was great! In the afternoon we were served fruit and cheese and crackers while sailing. Drinks were always available and Vinnie and Elaine were very friendly and super attentive to our needs. We had a great day and would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Virgin Gorda.

My Wife and I took a very nice trip on this sloop with the captain and his mate for a day cruise with about 10 other folks. Of course the British Virgin islands provide a great back drop for a leisure cruise through the many islands. We went from Virgin Gorda past the Dogs and out to Cooper for a swim and snorkel before lunch onshore there at the club restaurant. The whole way we were spoiled with the shipside amenities drinks / snacks, and the captain's tales of his islands cruises the for 25 years. All in all it was a real nice laid back day cruise, just the thing to pass the day when you're on vacation. This was the kind of getaway day I go to the Caribbean for in the middle of a long Midwestern Winter.
