Our family can’t thank you enough for recommending the Catatonic for our vacation. We had the most incredible time, each day was a great adventure that I really can’t describe appropriately. Each snorkel spot was a little different than the last. We docked in cool spots with exactly the sort of the things we like to do. Snorkeling with huge Tarpon, bouldering and jumping off big rocks or big boats, colorful fish and coral, hiking and playing on pristine beaches etc.
I can’t say enough great things about Captain Robert. Robert’s knowledge of the islands from a historical standpoint as well as knowing where the fun stuff was amazing. He just knew what we would love and gave us a bunch of it. We did so much it’s hard to write it all here, however some highlights besides the great snorkel spots was taking a great cab ride for dinner from Leverick Bay to Hog Heaven which ranked as my favorite spot.
This was topped the next day of course when we rolled into Cane Garden Bay and had a great sunset, happy hour and night listening to exactly the type of music from a one man band which ironically is much like my favorite guy near my beach house which I had described to Robert. The Captain went beyond any expectations we had for our trip. I have already spoken to several of my friends to refer them to Catatonic for their Caribbean crewed yacht vacations.
The chef’s meals and everything she brought to the table was amazing and she fit right in with the family.
She was always figuring out what would make each day a great experience with local flavor. Our preference sheet was far exceeded with great meals every day and night.
The tough thing going forward from here will be, “How do we top this vacation?”. Truly nothing will compare thanks to the great boat and crew. They made us feel so comfortable and right at home from the moment we stepped on the boat until we stepped back off. It was great to make 2 new friends while vacationing on a crewed yacht charter in the Caribbean with the family.
