The entire crew was very personable and made us feel comfortable from day one. We felt like one big happy family and it was very sad to leave them at the end of our charter. I would highly recommend the Freedom for future charters. The boat was very nice, but the crew “made” our vacation experience in the BVI one to remember for a lifetime.

Captain Frederick, Len and Barbie were gracious hosts, along with their Galley girls, Lisa and Courtney. We couldn’t have asked for better service and the food was amazing!! The variety, presentation and portions for breakfast, lunch & dinner were beyond our expectations. They were so attentive to detail and we didn’t have to ask for anything. The bedrooms & bathrooms were cleaned each day, making us feel like we were in a upscale hotel. They offered activities daily to fit everyone’s lifestyle and solicited our input each day regarding our travel itinerary for each day. Frederick and Len were very accommodating in taking us in the dingy to Willy T’s, Soggy Dollar and Foxy’s, not to mention to various snorkel area’s around the BVI and provided us with fantastic photos/video to capture the precious memories of our trip.

For those considering chartering a boat for a holiday, I can say that it is incomparable to any experience you will have at a hotel/resort. It is fun, adventurous, relaxing and beautiful all at the same time. However, the experience is highly dependent on the crew. We have friends who did not have the same experience as we did because of their crew, which is why I am writing this letter, to make it easier to assess the team running Freedom.
Fredrick (Captain), his wife Barbie, and brother Len made this trip very special. The team made sure that everyone was well looked after, comfortable, well fed and always happy about everything, whether it be excursions to shore, restaurant choices, activities (scuba diving, snorkeling or just hanging out) or sharing their knowledge about the region. The food Barbie (and Fredrick – don’t miss his amazing French toast) prepared was wonderful. Cocktails were great (Len went to great lengths to find a drink that matched our perfect idea of a tropical fruit mix – ask for a Hummingbird) and the sailing was fun. Whatever we seemed to want the crew was excited to make happen.
We were traveling with our son (13) and daughter (16) with school roommate. In addition we had four more of our daughters friends join us for New Year’s eve. We usually travel to 5 star hotels and have been to many places around the world. This is not the same – just better and more exciting. All of us, at the end of the trip and without hesitation, declared this the best vacation we have ever been on.

Sunshine, Laughs, beautiful crystal blue water, amazing sunsets, fabulous food, mid-afternoon naps, swimming, dancing, and on and on. I don’t’ think it gets any better than being on this boat in the Virgin Islands. We had such an amazing time. There is nothing like this around and we wouldn’t trade this experience for anything. We can’t thank you both enough!!!
