I just wanted to drop you a quick note and to tell you how much we enjoyed our charter. This was the most enjoyable vacation I ever experienced and I hope I get
to do it again soon. Cave snorkeling at Norman Island was an enjoyable
experience. This was a perfect day!
Captain Al is a fantastic captain. He is so very knowledgeable about the area, which was great while sailing by islands. He was great with the kids and very attentive. He is a gourmet chef! Everything ran so smoothly. I would highly recommend him to families and would definitely go back!
We had an amazing vacation and would highly recommend Captain Al. We were looking for a low key, relaxing vacation and that's exactly what we got! Our meals were awesome and Captain Al makes a mean pain killer!!
We just returned from an amazing week on the Catalyst. If you have any reservations, don’t. Captain Alan Roberts is clearly capable, responsible, and knowledgeable. The booking payment process was super easy. Captain Alan was trustworthy, gracious, and quick to respond to questions or provide information and instructions. Captain Alan is a top-notch Captain, Chef and tour guide. He devised our route based on the things we wanted to do and see and the time we had. He served up one amazing bay after another with a variety of activities at each one. When we arrived, Captain Alan pointed out where to snorkel, the calm waters for paddle boarding,
I had the opportunity to snorkel and I'd never done that before. Swimming in that beautiful ocean and kayaking around was also just great!
We were treated just like royalty on the one hand and as friends on the other.
Anyone interested in exploring the British Virgin Islands should charter the Catalyst and its Captain, Captain Alan Roberts. This was our dream trip of a lifetime and Captain Alan made our dream come true. Sailing, snorkeling the most extraordinary reefs, experiencing those fun and unique beverage establishments and relaxing on the most beautiful beaches.
And the S/V Catalyst makes the perfect base from which to enjoy the islands. The outstanding captain, spacious quarters, wide variety of water toys and especially the bean bag beds in the trampoline make this an exceptional vessel. But the most exceptional feature of the Catalyst is the food that comes out of her galley.

We had never been on a boat and are not sailors, yet we were comfortable the entire trip. We never once worried about the safety of our kids and they absolutely loved the experience. They are already asking when we can do it again. If you are considering a trip aboard the Catalyst, I can highly recommend it. This was a truly unique experience.
But what truly made this trip perfect was the CREW. Alan creates an environment that is so relaxed, comfortable, enlightening, enriching, friendly and fun, that I felt I was sailing with family (Only way better).
