Eliers Dec 19-26, 2011

Monica and I, our twin 10 year olds, Jack and Olivia and my mother, Nancy recently set sail with Captain Alan for a week on the Catalyst. We travel often and have enjoyed beach vacations throughout the world, but nothing compared to this. The British Virgin Islands are beautiful and Alan is an outstanding captain, chef and fantastic guide. He and the entire experience truly exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival, we kicked of our shoes and never put them back on for a week. We awoke each morning to the smell of fresh coffee and bacon or pancakes. We then sailed from island to island for a day of hikes, snorkeling, inner tubing, wake boarding, stand up paddle boarding and beach activities. When we were on the boat, there was plenty of room to spread out. Each afternoon we'd have cocktails and snacks on the boat and frequented Foxy's, the Willy T, Myett's and the like each night. Alan outdoes himself with the food and drinks, so be sure to take advantage of his skills as a chef. We had never stayed on a boat and are not sailors, yet we were comfortable the entire trip. We never once worried about the safety of our kids and they absolutely loved the experience. They are already asking when we can do it again. If you are considering a trip aboard the Catalyst, I can highly recommend it. This was a truly unique experience. Sean
