An amazing trip with Queen Holly – Captain Joe and Tiffany. The weather was spectacular, the food was well loved, abundant and an amazing variety. Our favorite spot was Salt Pond where the people were fun and turtles abundant. All in all we loved it. 4 teens 15-18 and 2 adults. We all came out alive and still friends – Thank you Joe and Holly. We loved our time!

What an amazing experience on Knot 5280. Holly and Joe were incredible hosts that found the perfect balance between relaxation and activity for our active family of 4. The happy, energetic personalities were contagious to everyone on the boat. They knew the islands so well and had great suggestions for hiking, snorkeling and exploring. Joe’s knowledge of sailing was beyond what I expected – he was...

We had a last minute switch from our planned carter due to an engine issue, and honestly, we could not have been more lucky. Holly and Joe were so warm and welcoming – we felt at home immediately. Joe did a great job finding us calm spots for us to anchor and Holly did a great job making delicious meals and drinks (you have to try her painkillers!!) Thank you both for an awesome week!

Holly and Joe were so fun! They took great care of our family on our day charter. Even though I sprung a last-minute dietary restriction; Holly still managed to make an incredible lunch! We can’t wait to come back and spend a few nights on Knot 5280.The Ball Family

Joe and Holly, thank you so much for making such an amazing place even better with your company, enthusiasm, knowledge, and expertise. We couldn’t have asked for better people to take us around the US Virgin Islands. It was our first trip down here and our first time on a catamaran. Captain Joe made us feel so safe and the boat was amazing – clean, spacious, and so well-cared for. The trip was abs...
