We had never been on a trip like this before. The only times on a sailboat was for 1/2 day snorkeling excursions in the Bahamas and Hawaii, never living on one. This was simply an outstanding week. Richard knows the VI very well, both in terms of what to see and do and the history. He was an excellent tour guide and snorkel guide. The Sea Level turned out to be incredibly comfortable, and it's captain (Richard) was a great chef. We were concerned about bugs and heat. We did not see any bugs nor have any bug bites the entire week. And while it was the middle of May, the temperature was quite moderate. Being from north Florida and knowing what our weather is like in May, we had been concerned but it was extremely comfortable. We would definitely recommend this trip.
Captain Richard's expertise in sailing and diving is beyond compare. We spent five adventure filled days on the sea level and enjoyed every minute. having the mobility of a boat ensures that you will see more of the islands while enjoying a wonderful level of privacy that is very relaxing. I highly recommend this amazing experience.
For our two year anniversary my husband and I decided to try out a live aboard sailing ketch with kind Captain Richard. What a delight it has been. Captain has an extremely clean boat and delicious meals he prepares with gusto. We are water people and we have had an amazing time snorkeling around water lemon, Rhone, the Indians and Tek tite. The boat is extremely well provisioned and we had our own birth and head with shower. This morning we saw a double rainbow over the bay. I highly recommend Richard for couples who enjoy sailing, snorkeling and eating al fresco. Richard is also extremely affordable compared to anywhere else around BVIs.
