I plan on doing this again really soon & it will be with Captain Raffi & Lisa – Lisa you were great, loved your hospitality & stories. Enjoyed! Really a great lady. Captain Raffi, you are really great to listen too, love your stories & your easy ways about you. Thank you for being the Captain on my 1st sailboat ride.

Dear Captain Raffi & the beautiful Lisa, Our family had an amazing experience & our daughters learned so much from you. In a 4 hour trip they learned more than a 2 week boat camp. We were incredibly honored & impressed by your calmness, hospitality & amazing presence. What an experience. Thank you so much for putting your soul into our experience. We are lucky to have met you both!

Liz; Byfield, MA

P.S. The food made us consider becoming permanent stowaways! Brendon

Thank you for such a wonderful time! Your Macaroni Cheese Burgers & fruit dessert pizza were AMAZING! I also appreciate that you let my 2 step-cousins & I drive the boat…WITHOUT you using the remote to ACTUALLY steer the boat! I always have so much fun on this boat!!! THANK YOU! Love, Isabel Dear Captain Raffi & Lisa Thank you so very much for one of the best vacations we’ve ever had! We truly appreciate the extra care & thoughtfulness we experienced! This trip with you both felt like a family trip & not like a charter & that is what makes you both so amazing. Can’t wait to do it all again with you next summer!

Love, Susan & Steve; Destin, FL

Thank you for a wonderful trip! We managed to not fall overboard, but we did “take the plunge”! It was a wedding to remember and exceeded all of our expectations. Thanks for helping us “tie the bowline”!

“Thoughts of February fade away, as the boat sails today. The ladies smile with bodies toned. The fellows dove while the Captains phoned. The amount of fun is criminal, and complaints of staff are minimal. Thanks for showing us a day so blue. This review was written drunk and true.”
