What can we say???!!! It was a 4 night experience we will never forget. Lewis and Alyssa were amazing hosts of their beautifully appointed catamaran the Quixotic. Lewis charted a fabulous course for us based on our love of snorkeling. We anchored at Yanuca (part of the Ringgold Island) where we did some hiking and snorkeling at a nearby crater. The beauty and silence was beyond words. Next we sailed to Albert's Cove where I tried some paddle boarding and my husband tried their new pedal kayak. The snorkeling was fantastic at both of these places! Alyssa is an astounding chef serving the freshest and most delicious meals based on our tastes. These two are highly organized and efficient making our trip as personable as possible. (You fill out a form before the charter so they know exactly what you are looking for.) This was our first catamaran trip so we were a little concerned about how we would manage with limited space. All we can say is it was incredibly spacious and we would definitely do again and plan a longer stay! We highly recommend!
It all starts and ends with the crew. Lewis, the captain, is as professional and experienced as you can get with his constant vigilance, attention to detail, ability to fix anything on board and methodical cheerful approach. Alyssa is a treasure who anticipates every need in a prescient, unassuming authentic and quite frankly loving manner. Her ability to run the boat is only surpassed by her genuine talent in the galley. We are very fussy about our food and my wife prepares a better meal than you will find in a fancy restaurant but Alyssa took us by surprise with her amazing talent. NOT TO BE MISSED! Oh,by the way, the tribal islands, snorkeling and boat activities were also beyond our hopes and fantasies.
It was the best decision sailing with Alyssa and Lewis for 8 days on their Quixotic catamaran. Together they are a very capable and great team.
We had the time of our lives sailing through the paradise that is the Fiji islands.
It was just a magnificent trip and a dream come true to see the beauty of nature, white sandy beaches, crystal clear blue water and the breathtaking underwater world with thousands of fish.
Alyssa and Lewis made the trip even more beautiful. Captain Lewis knows his job so well, it feels like he was born a skipper. He controls the Catamaran easily and always found the best anchoring spot in any bay. We could always choose where we wanted to sail to next, or spontaneously decide if we wanted to stay longer anywhere, provided the weather played ball.
Alyssa made us feel like we were in a fine dining restaurant every day and night. Her snacks and meals are so delicious we couldn't stop eating, and there was always enough food and drink available. We did not even have to ask for anything, because Alyssa already knew when we needed something. Great job to the both of you!
Quixotic is an extremely well built sailing catamaran. There is enough space to hang out whether it's on the deck, inside the lounge area, the bathroom or bed room. Everything is super clean and well equipped.
Bonus points for having caught three big tuna finish within the first few hours and to Alyssa for preparing lovely sashimi for us as a result!
All in all we highly recommend sail with these lovely people, there is no way you’ll be disappointed. We will definitely come back for a second trip!

We couldn't have asked for more! Lewis & Alyssa gave us the perfect honeymoon - and an entirely unique Fiji experience we couldn't have gotten any other way. If you're thinking about seeing Fiji, there's no better way to see all of its beauty than by boat. If you're thinking of boating, you can't ask for a better skipper and chef than these two.
Before we even arrived, they asked our preferences to plan an ideal itinerary - which took us off the beaten path and out to the Lau Islands. They greeted us with champagne and Alyssa's cooking never ceased to amaze us. Our days were willed with a great mix of activities and enjoying life on Quixotic. We fished, snorkled, kayaked, SUPed, windsurfed, relaxed, went to beaches, ate and drank better than we could have at any resort. There were rarely any other boats around in the beautiful and calm coves they found.
We can't thank them enough for such an awesome experience. They are great people and if you are reading this, then there's no choice. Enjoy your time on Quixotic!
From start to finish Quixotic offer an amazing cruising experience in Fiji's beautiful waters. Great food, great service, on a great yacht in an amazing location. All you could ask for.
We've just got home from spending 3 days with the guys and the trip was perfect!
Alyssa and Lewis always looked after us and made the trip really special. Throughly recommend the boat, the crew and the experience.
Thanks so much guys!
