You have been an incredible crew to all of us. The perfect host. This trip was meant as an adventure for us, a chance to visit the beautiful BVI. Of course travel is as much about the places you meet as it is about the people you meet! And we met the perfect people to guide us on our family adventure.

We saw wonderful spots including Bitter End, Francis Bay, Guana Island, and White Bay. We snorkeled at great spots including our favorite, the Indians. Eric, you run a tight ship, careful with all the details. That allowed us to sail in comfort and without hassle.

Without hesitation, you enabled our wishes, motoring to shore or tubing and of course sailing! It was a terrific vacation for us and we have you to thank for it.May our paths cross again in the future.

“Thank you so much for a wonderful week of sailing and shenanigans!

Your passion and knowledge made this a truly memorable experience- from snorkeling with the sea turtles in Salt Pond Bay to sailing on the hobie cat at the Bitter End, each day was an adventure.

We will miss your company and look forward to the time when our paths cross again.”

“To say this week was “fun” just doesn’t even express how peaceful, adventurous, beautiful, relaxing and eventful it was- all at the same time!! You gave it and us your all and we cannot say thank you enough. This was definitely a week we will always cherish together as a family.”

“Man–we had a great time! Eric, we appreciate your flexibility and great attitude doing so.  We had a lot of fun as a family and just Cheryl and I together.

I know the kids enjoyed this week as a transition from their own lives to getting together as a family.”

Eric, you were excellent at recruiting first mates. It was great fun watching Will trying to master the clove hitch knot, or Andrew going below decks to help with the anchor….We thank you very much for the wonderful sailing vacation in the BVIs!!! Thank you again for all of your hard work and hospitality.  This was an experience my family, and particularly my children, will never forget.”

“We didn’t know what to expect from our first sailing trip, and you  have set the bar extremely high for our next trip (and hopefully our next trip will be with you as well). Everything was first class…It’s hard to find the words to say thank you to someone who has given you treasured memories to last a lifetime, but we hope you know how much we greatly appreciated all your efforts and hospitality with our whole group.”

“This vacation was amazing!  I will certainly remember this for years to come, you  were so kind and full of energy.  This was both exciting and relaxing, a perfect combo of both…Eric, you did an awesome job navigating. You were so interactive and didn’t just do the things that we couldn’t, you went full 100%. Thank you for making this reunion with my family amazing.”

What a wonderfully beautiful experience sailing on Avalanche out of Newport, RI to Cuttyhunk and Martha’s Vineyard islands!  Captain Eric made the six of us feel welcome and relaxed with his professional sailing skills and knowledge of the area.  The memories of the delicious fish and lobsters dinners on the boat watching the sunset will last forever.

My Husband and I sailed on Avalanche with Captain Eric and another couple in the Virgin Islands during February 2016.  We had a fabulous time sailing, snorkeling, swimming, exploring the islands and dining in the Virgin Islands on Avalanche. The boat is very comfortable.  The inside and outside seating and dining areas gave us plenty of room to socialize and our stateroom gave us privacy.  Captain Eric is very knowledgeable of the Virgin Island and has a wonderful personality.  If you enjoy exploring the islands, snorkeling and relaxing this is the boat for you.  We look forward to our next voyage on Avalanche.
