We had the best time and enjoyed sailing on the the Kuralu this past week. The lunch was so delicious and healthy! The rum punch wasn't bad either. :)

We had an awesome time with Gary & crew. My friends (along with a group of others) spent a very relaxing day on the catamaran.

We started at Soper's Hole and headed towards Sandy Spit (an uninhabited islet). I stayed on the boat and relaxed, whilst the others snorkeled. Sandy Spit looks like it came straight out of 'Robinson Crusoe'...a stunning little desert island. The water was crystal clear (you can see right to the bottom, even though the water is very deep here). We then continued further to Jost Van Dyke, where Gary took us (by dinghy) to White Bay. Here, we chilled for a few hours, before heading back home on the calm waters.

On board, we had an endless supply of drinks, with a nice buffet set up below deck. There were more people on the trip than we expected (we were under the impression that there would be only a small group) but fortunately, nobody was really loud or annoying, so it was okay. Gary was friendly and professional, his little son Noah was cute, but their dog Grommet was the real star of the show (and he had the best sea legs out of us all!)

They say the BVI is famed for it's sailing. Having never been sailing before, I'm so glad I got to experience this with Kuralu...definitely one of the highlights of my trip. Highly recommended!

We had an amazing experience sailing with Gary and Grommet. Getting in contact with Gary the day before we chartered his boat was so easy. he was very responsive and so helpful. He even arranged to have a taxi pick us up at the west end in Tortola and take us to his boat. The boat was incredibly clean and well kept. The captain Gary was so knowledgeable and friendly. He made the day so much more fun by being outgoing and having a great personality. Even showed us pictures of his daughters. Took us snorkeling where we could go off on our own and spend as much time as possible in the water. We went to white bay and got to drink rum punch and pain killers all day. The lunch and food served on the boat was also incredible, best salad dressing I've ever had!
Best part about the trip was being able to jump off his boat as many times as we wanted and stopping to see the dolphins which is very rare. We only wished we could stay out longer and go again the next day. When we come back to Tortola next year we will definitely be calling Gary again for another trip.
