We had a wonderful time! The crew was great and Chef Martin did not disappoint - he was amazing!!!! Captain showed us some-places we haven´t seen and overall was a great trip.... Thx for making it possible on short notice!
This week has been by far the best trip we have been on! Captain D, Stephanie, Martin and Anthony are truly the best of the best! The food, drinks, excursions, fishing, conversations, laughs, have been like no other! We’ve chartered a handful of times and none can compare to this crew! We will be back for sure!

´ ****, let me just say it is hard to readjust after a trip like that!! The Exumas were absolutely spectacular, I am not a big snorkeling fan and I was blown away by what I saw and did in the water. The scenery and the trip itinerary was well thought out and planned. The boat was very nice, a little worn in places but nothing bad just a bit dated, the toys and tender were very nice and up to date. The thing that put this trip over the top though was the crew they were absolutely fantastic, the food was wonderful and the personal touches all along the way were excellent. If I did this again I think I would pay to stay in the exumas and skip Nassau all together. But the real question for you is where to next and how do we top this? By the way I was able to keep this a surprise to all the guests up until the time we pulled up to the yacht and Esther was standing there with champagne for us all as we stepped aboard! I dont think my guests feet touched the ground the first day. Wonderful trip, I thank you for your advice and all your help in planning this trip.

It was so great to have Captain Duran waiting for us at the airport with his ´******´ sign, and to board the bus he had booked to take us to the harbor. Captain Duran, your crew was great in welcoming us on-board, and getting us settled in our rooms with our luggage.
A special thanks goes to Juliette for being such a cheerful and efficient hostess, to serve all of our needs, not just with the food, but the decorations, and the clean bedding and tuck-in sweets on our pillows. You were right onto our spills and accidents.
Kai Chaplin, made our time on-board so interesting, taking us to the beach, getting out the water equipment for the boys and us to ride. Releasing the ´wish lanterns´ was unique. Thank you for taking the pictures to make our time together so memorable.
Mark, your cooking was so delicious, and especially as this was your first cruise with children.
Thanks to the crew for arranging such an interesting tour to Meeks Patch, Harbour Island, North Eleuthera, Green Cay and drive through Nassau.
I would definitely recommend the Kelly Anne to others

Our charter with M/Y Alexandra Jane could not have been better. The crew is outstanding, the food incredible and the adventures were unforgettable.
Thank you so much for setting us up with her. We are still reeling in happiness about the whole experience.
Hope you had a very lovely holiday.
All the best,

A giant, full-hearted thank you to Captain Duran, Des, Stephanie, and Chef Martin!
All the stars really lined up to make our trip flawless and so memorable. Captain, you are an absolute pleasure to be around. Des- you gave us some much to do and enjoy without pushing us past our comfort zone (and still holding our alcoholic beverages while doing so ) Stephanie- you are a delight so kind and attentive, and if anyone else is reading this, try her espresso martini and Martin- every meal was better than the last. Happy travels, and thanks for everything!
