Are you two people looking for a reasonable Virgin Islands sailboat charter to enjoy? Then Bel Ami, the one couple Virgin Islands sailboat charter, is an excellent option for your vacation.
Bel Ami a Virgin Islands-based yacht for charter. It has one private king-bed stateroom aft and two single cabins midship. Therefore, Bel Ami can easily accommodate a family with two children in their own private berths in the saloon area and companionway. However, the yacht is ideal for a couple who can enjoy the en-suite aft king cabin.
“An Adventurous and Spectacular Way to Experience the Virgin Islands!
by Ali and Phil
We recently returned from an amazing week-long charter on the Bel Ami with Captain Dave and Bobbie Rae. We booked the vacation almost a year ago to celebrate our 10th anniversary. In the time between booking and arrival, we had several conversations with Dave about our interests, concerns, and desires for the trip. Without exception, the vacation lived up to all of our expectations.
Captain Dave and Admiral Bobbie Rae enthusiastically greeted us at the airport, brought us to the Bel Ami and we were off and sailing within an hour or two of landing. The first day was spent orienting ourselves to the boat and seeing how we adjusted to sailing. Captain Dave took great care to gauge our acclimation to sea life (I wore a trans-dermal patch, but my wife did not). We spent the remainder of the day snorkeling (with Captain Dave as a fantastic guide), eating, and relaxing.
The rest of the week was spent sailing, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, eating, drinking, and enjoying life to its highest potential. We visited twelve different islands in seven days. There were several places that we wanted to visit, but based on numerous reviews, we allowed Dave to tailor the trip to our interests using his vast knowledge of the Virgin Islands.
Our journey was blessed with fantastic weather and favorable winds. We went to the Baths on Virgin Gorda, but Captain Dave was experienced enough to check the cruise boat schedule to make sure we didn’t share the site with hordes of people from the massive boats. It was a special pleasure to jump into the perfect, azure water to swim to shore on Sandy Spit and Sandy Cay, and an even more special experience to then have Captain Dave bring our towels, camera, and sandals to shore in the Bel Ami’s dinghy.
Captain Dave offered to advise on hikes to take and was polite enough to ask if we wanted to go on our own or with him as a guide. The same was true of meals. We ate many meals together as a foursome, but we were offered as many private romantic meals as we wanted.
And food! Captain Dave is a fantastic cook. The meals were varied and excellent. He had emailed a detailed food preference questionnaire prior to arrival. And he tailored our meals to the information we provided. For instance, my wife mentioned her love of corn, and there it was in our first meal. The attention to detail is amazing.
If a sailing vacation has ever been on your bucket list. Then this is the boat to take, and these are the people to take you.”
