March 2022 USVI Charter
We recently chartered Floatation Therapy for six nights in the US Virgin Islands and we could not have been happier on our charter. Captain Mike and Chef Sara were absolutely exceptional and we loved our time with them. From the very beginning, it was clear that they wanted to make sure that our trip met the desires of the whole group. On our pre-call, they asked great questions, were professional and had great communication and were incredibly responsive. Throughout the entire experience, they both were friendly, professional, kind, calm and just really, really good people. They listened to us and created an itinerary that was exactly what we were looking for and made sure that every experience was a positive one – from reserving moorings, reservations, finding great snorkel and dive spots, recommending great restaurants, connecting us with taxi drivers, etc. They absolutely went above and beyond in every situation. Chef Sara’s food is incredible and she made some of the best food we’ve eaten. She baked bread (sandwich bread AND the most amazing banana bread we’ve ever tasted), made homemade pizza crust, created a wonderful blueberry compote from scratch, pickled her own jalapenos and just made everything wonderful without cutting any corners. Her salmon dish and curry pork dish were two of our favorites and we seriously commented after every meal how delicious the food tasted. I also commented that the meal table always got very quiet once the food was served because we were all loving it so much. Most importantly, Mike and Sara are just good people. We loved being around them and enjoyed having them a part of our vacation. We will absolutely be rebooking with the two of them in the future!

Mike and Sara were stellar. They anticipated our every need, and responded to every request…immediately. Mike was an amazing bartender and skilled sailor and diver and Sara a very accomplished chef and all around fun interesting travel mate. They were relaxed and welcoming and made us instantly comfortable on board They went above and beyond to make this adventure everything we had hoped.
I’d have to say it was a 10 (out of 5 stars) for us all. I wouldn’t change one aspect of our time on board!
We hope to book w Mike and Sara next February but have to get the rest of our party on board first. I will be reaching out for sure. Cannot wait!
December USVI 2021 Charter
For Mike and Sara - our amazing crew who saw to our every need, from drinks to food!! Sara’s gourmet cuisine (5 star chef) to Mike’s maritime experience with navigation anchorages and life on board in general. Mike and Sara’s incredible knowledge of sea life and boating from years of experience is difficult to match. We could not have asked for a better crew on such a well appointed and awesome boat! It was a perfect vacation. Hope to see you again for a repeat experience!
We know it would be a fabulous trip, but the experience surpassed our already high expectations! Sara and Mike - you are an incredible team that created and environment so calm, so perfect, so peaceful, and so satisfying! The food was divine! Snorkeling was spectacular…and the sailing was ideal… full of big winds blowing just the right way! We appreciate how you anticipated every need and offered lots of options to ensure each of us had a spectacular vacation! Thank you so much Cynthia for sharing your beautiful boat and crew! Looking forward to our next adventure together!!

“The week went so fast, thanks to Sara and Mike’s planning and hospitality. We felt very safe in Captain Mike’s sailing hands and very satisfied thanks to Sara’s amazing cooking. They knew all the best coves for sun and fun at the beach. They picked great dive spots and even found a lobster on our last day to serve up for a delicious lunch. We enjoyed Mexican Dominos and shots of fireball. It was an extraordinary adventure!!” -Kelly and Rob
“What an awesome week, we had such a wonderful time on Floatation Therapy. Sara and Mike were amazing - all planning and anticipating our needs before we did. They really went beyond we couldn’t of asked for anything more. We loved the diving especially Tektite and catching a lobster on the last day. We are ready to come back next year and do it all over again!! You also made us forget about covid and all the problems of the world. Couldn’t ask for more! Sara’s meals were delicious and plated beautifully! Thanks for everything!” -Clair and Mark
February 2021 USVI Charter
You did a great job captaining the Floatation Therapy Yacht! Thank you for keeping us face. It was fun to have the wind behind us and raise the jib. We appreciate that you had some ideas of where to go and what to do in the USVI. Thank you for hiking with us and snorkeling with us. Thanks for the many rides on the tender boat to the beaches, snorkel spots, and to dinner, You also listened to our wants and ideas.”
You served us so well! You were a rock star in the galley with creative menus of healthy and delicious meals. I will never forget the stuffed bell pepper lunch the first day, the lemon garlic shrimp & zucchini noodles, crab cakes on Salemon Beach and steak and scallops over cauliflower rice! You work long hours with a sweet spirit to meet our needs and our wants. Thanks, too, for assisting Mike on the vessel and tender boat.”

January 2021 USVI Charters
#FLOATATIONTHERAPY The name says it all. If you are looking for a charter that creates a place of peace whether exhilarating adventures w hikes, dives/snorkeling, or serene bays and beaches basking in the sun Floatation Therapy along with its great crew is the place to be.
They had fresh unique dishes and some fabulous favorites. Cappacinios with breakfast, simple snacks after snorkeling, appetizing lunches, more snacks if you like, and of course, opulent dinner followed by decadent desserts. And always on hand a cocktail or two or three!
The crew, Mike and Sarah, helped us plan and create the experience we wanted. A getaway with no shopping, no work, low carb menu, and no stress. Beginning in Caneel Bay, snorkeling at Henley Bay (awesome), Trunk Bay - beautiful beach to bask in the sun (underwater snorkel trail interesting), Cruz Bay - off to our one dine out, Leinster Bay - hike up to Annaberg Sugar Mill (light hike, history, and butterflies among the Nokia trees), another beautiful restful visit to Caneel Bay among the sea turtles, then off to Salt Pond Bay - light hike through Salt Pond (a lesson in salt and ecology in itself) to Drunk Bay (a transition from simple beauty to splendid rock/ reef/fossil exploration) - with luscious mangroves, rolling green hills - a dramatic sea crashing among the rocks. On my next trip, I plan to hike Ram Heads Trail, which I hear is spectacular.
Thank you, Mike and Sarah, for an awesome adventure and all the therapy I could ask for. You´ll see me again!!
