Our party of 12 took a private charter on the 46 foot catamaran to 2 fabulous stops in St. Maarten. Pierre and Stan were absolutely top notch. They found the perfect places to take us and treated us like royalty. It was our favorite and most memorable day of our vacation. I highly recommend the boat and the crew!!! We cannot wait to return.

Our family of 6 chartered the Mojito for a full day of sailing and had the most wonderful day - actually, the best day of our trip. The captain and first mate were fun, yet always very professional. The boat was beautiful and well-maintained. The snorkeling was fantastic thanks to our first mate who jumped in the water and showed us all kinds of sea creatures. Stan then made reservations for us at Karibuni on Pinel Island for a fabulous lunch. Finally, we anchored off Tintamare for a swim and had the good fortune to see 2 sea turtles swim within 5-10 feet of our boat (we were too noisy and scared them away)!

There is only one word to describe it UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! And that is an understatement. We were scheduled to go out on Monday, but the weather was far from cooperative. We had a pretty bad rain storm overnight and not only was the water very rough but the winds were very strong. After a call to the captain, we had no problem rescheduling until Wednesday when the weather forecast was more favorable. We met the Pierre and Stan on the dock. They immediately offered to come help carry all our stuff. We said no we had it. They suggested we leave it on the dock, go get breakfast while they finished up prepping the boat. After we returned everything had been put on the boat and put in the fridge. We all gathered around for the briefing about the schedule for the day, about the boat, and of course the safety issues. We pulled out from the dock exactly on time. What a beautiful day, we could not have asked for more. Pierre and Stan were friendly, helpful, and professional. You have two fantastic employees that did their best to make us feel comfortable, safe and to have a fun and memorable day. They connected with each one of the people in our group, having a conversation with each person. They helped with picture taking, getting us beverages, and cooking. The tour around the island was breathtaking, and their knowledge of the island impressive. They too commented that they have never had so much fun with a group, or offered so much help to them. This experience supersedes a 5 star rating..

A group of our friends and family chartered a yacht for the day from Private Yacht Charter . They were convient to our location at the Oyster Bay Resort, just down the road within walking distance. They were very helpful with deciding where we wanted to go for the day. if was very nice that we could make our schedule and not follow something already planned out. Pierre & Stanley were GREAT!!!!! super fun. they took us around the entire island stopping to snorkle, and eat at a resturant of our choice then took us to a small island off the coast. The day was very relaxing and enjoyable! They were full of lots of information and willing to do whatever we wanted. Stanley was tons of fun and was a great bartender mixing us a special drink we have now named the "Stanley". They were constantly taking pictures for us and made sure our every need was taken care of. I would HIGHLY recommed taking this charter with these wonderful people, you won't regret it!

Our group had a wonderful time. The boat is absolutely beautiful; Stan, the captain, provided a very comfortable trip; and the scenery was breathtaking. We sailed to St. Barts for shopping then over to another side of the island for snorkeling. It was great fun and relaxing. Definitely worth it! - The group from RI.
