Dolphin Daze Guest Reviews

A Wonderful Week on Dolphin Daze

We spent a wonderful week on the Dolphin Daze. The crew, Lesli and Ryan, were amazing, so fun to be with and so attentive to our needs and every request. The food was perfect, just the types of things we had requested prior to the trip. The boat was so comfortable and we made use of the paddle boards, snorkels, fins and other toys that were available. Lesli led us on two interesting walks on land, and Ryan captained the boat expertly. It was such a relaxing week, just what we were looking for, and made even more special because of Lesli and Ryan’s ready smiles and cheerful dispositions. Just a magical experience and one that left us all with fond memories.

WOW!!! What An AH-mazing 9 Days

WOW!!! What an AH-mazing 9 days we had with y´all sailing the BVIs on Dolphin Daze! Your ability to anticipate our every need is truly a gift. The boat was immaculate and the food was delicious! Our favorites were the seared tuna, key lime pie and the orange vanilla crème brulees! Ending our nights with Tim playing his guitar and singing (that voice!!!) was so very special!

Every niche you took us to was perfect! From snorkeling spots, to kayaking, to paddle boarding and the incredibly beautiful beaches, oh the beaches! Our most favorite spot was Anegada, truly heaven on earth! We cannot thank you enough for taking such good care of our group and helping us celebrate Marty´s 50th Birthday, it is something none of us will ever forget! We don´t think the trip could have been any more perfect, so THANK Y´ALL from the bottom of our hearts for the memories of a lifetime!

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
And the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

We love you guys,

What a gift!

Goodness; what a gift to have spent seven days with two of the most incredible and adorable people we have met in a very long time. As with any trip of this magnitude, we were a bit apprehensive, but immediately put at ease upon meeting you. From the warm smiles, professional knowledge and genuine care, you two were over the top!

Ryan, you’re the consummate captain and host, and Lesli, you’re the epitome of grace and great cooking. It’s obvious you both love what you do, as well as deeply love each other – an incredible winning combination. Please know that we are both looking forward to working with you again soon.
Thank you for sharing your talents and beautiful spirits with us. We can’t imagine better cruise partners!
Please stay in touch and above all, be safe.
Friendship and Blessings,

´Trip of a Lifetime with Captain Ryan and Leslie´

-Julia K. May 22, 2018
I returned home yesterday from a 4 night cruise captained by Ryan and Leslie. It truly was a trip of a lifetime for our party of 7. We were impressed with Ryan and Lesli’s boating skills. They work seamlessly to ensure everyone on board is safe and well-cared for. Their love for the island community, boating and each other is inspiring. Ryan and Lesli shared their knowledge of island history/lure, marine life, current events, hurricane recovery efforts and more! They joined us on activities off the boat to ensure we enjoyed our experience to the fullest. The meal Ryan and Lesli prepared for us were fresh and delicious. Lesli makes the best painkiller in the Caribbean hands down! Their attention to detail was exceptional. I highly recommend Ryan and Lesli. You won’t be disappointed


“RELAXATION!” -GI Joel, Indianola, Iowa April 18, 2018
Went on a sail with Ryan and Lesli and had a great day. The sailing was great, the snorkel stops guided by Lesli were excellent, lunch was perfect, and the conversation was enjoyable. Ryan and Lesli are a very efficient but relaxed couple and they work hard to be accommodating. I would recommend Ryan ann Lesli to anyone who wants to experience a great sail around the Islands.

´Amazing boat! Amazing hosts!´

-Skye Val, Augusta, Georgia July 5, 2017
Being in the Virgin Islands was absolutely magical and I didn’t think it could get better until I sailed with Ryan and Lesli! The boat is beautiful and the hosts were amazing. They customized the trip to our group and spent more time than they had to. They both patiently answered my endless questions about sailing and the islands. Towards the end of the trip, I got seasick. I was quite embarrassed but they comforted me, brought me cold towels to help me with the sickness and taught me a few tricks to get over it. They took such good care of me and were so understanding. They were attentive, friendly, informative and fun. I am an avid traveler and have been around the world, however, this is my favorite trip thanks to Ryan and Lesli! I can’t thank you both for unforgettable memories and making this trip epic. I absolutely can’t wait to come back to the islands and sail with you again. You two are so genuine and great! Keep up the fantastic work and make more people the happiest!

“Captain Ryan and Lesli made our vacation!”

-Rochelle Denise, Augusta, GA June 25, 2017
Captain Ryan and Lesli were phenomenal hosts! They shared fun facts about all of the islands we sailed by and ensured we had delicious drinks and local food. I was a little timid the first time we went snorkeling off the boat, but Captain Ryan was very competent and I had the utmost trust in him. We were able to see and do so much with Captain Ryan. We snorkeled at Lovango and Henley Cay, we sailed to St. Thomas and snorkeled with turtles. We even ordered pizza from a boat! For my birthday, Captain Ryan customized a special trip out to Waterlemon Cay for us. My husband and I enjoyed a sunset with a view to die for. On our snorkeling adventures we saw sting rays, turtles, barracuda, eels, starfish, reef shark and a number of exotic marine life. Captain Ryan and Lesli made our vacation! Ever since my husband and I have returned home we haven’t stopped talking about sailing and how we cannot wait to go back!
