Connor grew up in southern Colorado, part of a large family that was always on the move. Taking to the mountains and forests at a young age he grew up hiking, hunting, fishing, rafting and diving into anything that involved open skies and fresh air. From there he continued to express his love of nature when he pursued a BS in geology from the University of Wyoming. Two weeks after he graduated what was supposed to be a temporary hiatus in the Virgin Islands turned into the discovery of a new home. After he took his first job on a 52 ft Gold Coast Cat the rest, as they say, is history. Four years later his cummulative knowledge of top tier hospitality and boating work have allowed him to pursue his new found love of sailing, never ending horizons, and sunsets.

Since she can remember, Brianne´s dream was to work on the water. Hailing from a small city in NH, Bri made her way up to the White Mountains every weekend. Hiking, kayaking, camping were just a few outdoor activities that sparked her interests. After graduating with a master’s in physical education and health education, Bri took a chance and moved to the Virgin Islands in search of a life of adventure and learning. Her passion for the beauty and serenity of ocean living landed Bri a job working day charters upon her arrival to the Virgin Islands in 2013. She has since worked as a chef and first mate in the term charter industry and can´t wait to show her guests the ins and outs of the Virgin Island son Better Days.

Better Days Guest Reviews

From the moment we stepped aboard the welcoming smiles and introductions, the delicious food, the humor and the overall vibe was specular.

When your kids look at you on the last day and say ´I´m so sad this trip is over,´ you know it has been an incredible experience with lifelong memories. From the moment we stepped aboard the welcoming smiles and introductions, the delicious food, the humor and the overall vibe was specular. We are a family of 6 who have traveled on numerous vacations near and far, and this has definitely topped them all!! So, a sincere thank you to Brie and Connor for a successful giving is a magical journey. This is true paradise!

Thank you-Tank you-Thank you,

Everything we top notch from he delish dished prepared by Bri to the sailing and water games with captain Connor.

Thanksgiving trip 2019

Our time aboard Better Days exceeded our expectations day after day. Everything we top notch from he delish dished prepared by Bri to the sailing and water games with captain Connor.

Each day brought a new adventure from snorting, sailing, paddle boarding, exploring the Baths, Indian rock, Bubbly pool and White Bay. We made so many memories as a family aboard the boat and were truly grateful to spend Thanksgiving with Conor and Bri.
What was the most impactful part of exploring the USVI and BVI was the genuine hospitality and kindness extended to all of us. We felt spoiled and at home from day one to the very end. You truly made the trip better. It´s not everyday that we meet people like you both and we feel lucky to have spent time aboard Better Days with you!

I think it´s safe to say we will be back to the Islands and would love to sail with you again. Until next time we meet be safe and enjoy the sun, the sea and the sand (and the dolphins)
We can´t thank you enough for making with the best week of the year. All the best to you both.
