We had a blast! The food was amazing, the boat is awesome and the different places we went to were the Best! We will be back many times with family and friends. This was by far the best vacation ever, and we have been to a ton of places. Carlos and Maribel are the best. True pros and their love for the business shows.
Loved it!

Carlos and Maribel!
Third time…and somehow each time we are with you we find new adventures, new stories, new memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. You are special friends who we speak of often as we talk about our best times. Favorite places and people that we miss and enjoy the most. You have been so kind to our family, and we respect you both greatly for who you are and what you do. Visiting you is always much more than a vacation to us. Thank you for another experience perfect in every way, again.
Your friend,
Jeff Dudan

Dear Carlos and Maribel,
Words could never express the memories we have made on your beautiful ALIZE!
Losing complete awareness of time, I have felt pure freedom and for a brief moment I have been "one with the sea".
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Let's sail away again very soon.
Love.
Colleen.
Carlos and Maribel,
What a perfect week we have had on the ALIZE! It was so worth the long wait because of Covid! We are so thankful that we could join you for the third time! It gave us such comfort for our weary souls. And a trip with you has always been about comfort! The most delicious and beautifully presented meals, the great moorings, awesome snorkeling, and the laughter, made for the most joyful experience! We are so appreciative for all the heart and soul that you put into making it so!!
Much love- Until next time,
Anne.
Carlos and Maribel,
Words cannot express how much this trip meant to all of us. It was a long two years wait! I thought it was never going to happen!
Y'all are the most wonderful Chef and Captain team and most importantly, wonderful people. The BVI are beautiful , but the trip would not be the same without both of you onboard!
Everything was absolutely the best. I hope all your future cruises are great, but remember: we are the best!
Love,
Nancy

Carlos and Maribel,
What a wonderful week we had! I only wish the rest of the family could have made it. Each day was an incredible experience and so different than the day before. From the early morning coffee to Maribel's incredible cooking and the beautiful sights. Who could have asked for more?
You both run an amazing catamaran. So clean, friendly and fully stocked.
Thanks for an amazing week!
