2 Jan (Tortola, BVI) – 9 Jan (Tortola, BVI) 2023

Thank you so much for caring for us during our charter in the British Virgin Islands. ARAOK took us to many beautiful places, and on our journey, we made many discoveries. Stingrays, tarpon, squid, and of course some delicious lobster. We loved the beaches in Anegada and the many safe harbours we anchored for the night. Thank you especially for the special service you gave to us and our young children. I can only begin to wonder how they have absorbed all of the sights, sounds and tastes they have had the privilege to enjoy. Every need our ours was anticipated and delivered expertly ad swiftly. It has to be said that “chef” excelled himself. Together with Mimi, serving exquisite food to everyone’s delight. Vive ARAOK!
