Sandra and I had the best time ever. We were very impressed with the crew. They did a wonderful job and were very professional. They did everything possible to make sure we had a great time and succeeded. As Sandra said, we saw every type of fish you could see. Only thing we didn’t see we’re penguins ! Hope to return again in the future and will recommend Happy Time, to my friends.

I just wanted you to know what an awesome time Carol and I had aboard Happy Time this past week. Your crew is the absolute best! They were always so professional at what they did but so personal when dealing with all of us. Thank you for choosing such a great team to make our trip the absolute best!

Our getaway aboard Happy Time was one of the most memorable family vacations we have ever taken! The crew are smart and friendly and know the islands inside and out. Just as we had hoped, most of our days were spent snorkeling, sometimes guided by one of the crew , who know the waters very well. And (again) just as we had hoped, evenings were spent stargazing, playing games and planning the next day’s activities. Between activities, homemade meals and snacks were five star. We are foodies, but we never thought the food would be so unique and delicious! We hope to be lucky enough to make more memories on Happy Time.
We just returned from a week of cruising the BVIs on Happy Time. What an excellent experience we had. This was our second excursion sailing the BVIs, both were great experiences yet completely different. The crew could not have provided us with a better environment in which to enjoy our trip. From the care and skill which they took preparing every meal, to navigating us to the most beautiful and scenic anchorages, they enhanced our experience at every turn. From the coordination of local transportation to picking out a great restaurant and assisting with all the water sports, the Happy Time team did it all effortlessly. I am not saying we would not bareboat again, but this experience was awesome.

The boat was beautiful, the food was great! Most importantly, however, is the crew. I did not realize that as much as I do now until after the trip. They were lovely and pleasant people and made us feel at home immediately. We have two 26-year-olds and a 12-year-old who came on the trip. The crew were as engaging with our 12-year-old as our adult children, keeping him on the move and always doing fun things.
They became a primary reason for why we enjoyed the trip! We felt that we were doing exactly what we wanted to do at all times. We felt safe and secure with this very competent and skilled crew.
So when deciding which boat to have your adventure on, spend as much or more time on finding out about the crew. It will take your trip from great to exceptional when the crew is as professional, fun and engaging as Happy Time’s.
If the boat reasonably meets your requirements, pick the Happy Time over any other. Pick the crew as the most important decision. You won’t be disappointed.

Can’t thank you enough for a wonderful trip! You were so generous to share your world with us. Every part of the experience was wonderful – your knowledge of where to go and what to do; the food and delicious meals; having our own marine biologist. Welcome to being part of our family!

Thank you so much for this outstanding and wonderful trip. We enjoyed the family atmosphere on board and felt at home from the first moment. Your skills as captains and hosts are amazing and you are simply the best crew imaginable. Both of you are extraordinary chefs – better than any restaurant in the BVI. Thank you for all those unforgettable and wonderful moments and memories of a lifetime. You ROCK!

The two of you are a treasure! Thank you so much for keeping us safe (a bit of a challenge with a 3 & 5-year-old pair) and taking all of us on a tremendous adventure. But most of all, thank you for the warmth and caring and the amazing attention to gave to our children. They are going to miss you, as shall my wife and I. All the best – we hope this is “see you later” and not “goodbye”

Ann and I just got back from a week aboard Happy Time…Jeff and Caitlin are head and shoulders superior to any crew that we have had aboard a BVI yacht charter.
The boat is great looking – we really enjoyed added features of the blue underwater lights for the dinghy and the really cool lounging bolsters on the trampoline.
Caitlin has a remarkable ability to create complex and subtle flavors which add several layers of depth to her meals.Every happy hour Jeff served us a different cocktail creation, all of which were perfectly light and refreshing, and none of which I (a semi-professional drinker) have ever tasted (the setting…at anchor lounging on the new bolsters under the new fore deck shades…certainly doesn’t hurt the taste of the cocktails!).
Caitlin and Jeff could draw a map of the details of every dive spot from memory and Caitlin has a deep fund of knowledge about sea life and fish behavior.
Every morning Caitlin had made the beds, cleaned the bathrooms and done some sort of magic folding the towels into animal shapes…before we had finished breakfast…we called her the housekeeping Ninja!
All that on top of having delightful personalities!Caitlin and Jeff are real pros. Guests will be in for something really special aboard this boat.

You have an incredible sailboat and we all had an amazing time! Captain Jeff and Chef Caitlyn were wonderful and they were most excellent hosts. Captain Jeff was a confident, skilled captain and Chef Caitlyn quite the accomplished chef! The snorkeling was simply my favorite part and I also enjoy Sandy Cays, the beaches and standing from time to time on solid land :). The food was fabulous, absolutely nothing could be improved upon in that arena! I’ve already shared my experience with some friends and told them to look up Happy Time.
We really could rave about everything from the very beginning as the taxi driver–Americanus Jackson–was a lovely individual and Caitlyn arranged for him to take us both from and to the airport- that was a special touch. While we ate breakfast, Caitlyn was making our beds and cleaning our room/bathrooms.The whole trip was relaxing, enjoyable and quite memorable!
Caitlyn was a very knowledgeable and helpful snorkel guide. I, by the way, had the most amazing snorkeling adventure where a little fish hung out with me for at least 45 minutes and no matter where I swam, fast or slow, he swam right in front of my goggles. When I stopped to clear the goggles, the fish would stay right by my body. In fact, he didn’t leave until I had to get in the boat…I miss that little fish :).
The special drink of the day each day was a super nice touch.
Thank you for a wonderful week!!!
