Spent yesterday with Capt. Ian and Catherine and couldn't have had a better time. They were both professional and fun to be around. Great snorkeling, amazing lunch, drinks stayed full, and a relaxing sail to end the day. Highly recommended!!

Ian and the crew were fantastic. Great communication and planned a perfect trip. Helped pick us up at a destination closer to us because we were a group of 15 including 8 kids. They were very attentive and Ginger, the first mate, was a big hit with the kids and adults. They were well stocked with bottomless drinks for adults... More

We had a fantastic day with Captain Ian and the crew. We had 8 kids that asked a lot of questions and explored the boat. We saw dolphins, sea turtles, and barracuda (under the boat). Lunch was expertly grilled chicken and ribs with plenty of drinks and snacks. It was a beautiful day and we were well taken care of.

Captain Ian, Sandy, and Cindy were all great. The meal was delicious! The cooler stayed well stocked. We enjoyed the sailing, snorkeling, swimming, and hanging out on... More

Absolutely - hands down -the best day of the vacation!!! To say that Ian and his crew are the best would be an understatement. We did a whole day with family and friends and sailed to Anguilla. Started the day with drinks and great music to get the party tolling!! Snacks and lunch were delicious. Swimming in the crystal blue... More

We had the most fantastic day out on Spellbound, truly our best day, sailing to Anguilla, anchored for BBQ lunch of chicken and ribs. Ian, his crew and Ginger were wonderful hosts. For a fun and relaxing sailing experience on a catamaran (no heeling!) with a wonderful old sea dog as a captain you cannot do better. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Thanks... More

The Mercedes sails out of Phillipsburg in St. Maarten and we were so impressed with the crew that we had to post this review on trip advisor! They were knowledgeable about the sights, the ship and the history of both. They were so polite and welcoming like we had never seen before!! This is a must if you want to... More

Captain Ian and Ginger hosted one of the best times of my life on the majestic Spellbound during the Heineken Regatta 2017. He made us feel like family and entertained first class...all while instructing his crew to third place in the multi hull II division . If you have never experienced Captain Ian's hospitality and meals on the Spellbound;this is... More
