Blue Gryphon Guest Reviews

***February 2022***

***February 2022***

Guest One:
The Blue Gryphon was the most beautiful boat I have ever been on. We loved every detail from the comfort of the rooms to the amazing, attentive staff.

The crew did everything they could to make our trip a trip to remember! We actually never want to leave!! They might find us stowed away in one of the many beautiful bedrooms!

Guest Two:
We cannot thank the crew enough for such a wonderful trip!

The weather wasn´t ideal at the start but they were stellar at adjusting to ensure our time wasn´t wasted and we didn´t miss any highlights.

We felt safe and assured with Captain John, well cared for by Alicia, fed the most delicious food by Sadie, and last but not least every detail down to the last snorkel handled by Spencer with an easy smile and no big deal attitude.

We truly appreciate everything!

June 2019 Feedback:

´It was absolutely amazing. I mean, gosh. I don’t know where to start. Thank you for recommending this boat and all of your wonderful support. We were expecting great things and we got exceptional.

The crew are unbelievable. The four of them worked together seamlessly. We had quite the age range onboard and let me tell you, everyone was doing different things at different times and the crew were always one step ahead. The yacht is fabulous and of course they have everything onboard you would ever want and more but let me tell you…it was all about the crew. I’m trying to think about each amazing thing I can tell you but there are too many. The entire experience was a dream.´
