Captain Dennis has been drawn to the water and nature as long as he can remember. As the only boy with four sisters, his favorite childhood memories were the times they spent boating, sailing, fishing, and camping. He then raised two boys and a girl enjoying much of the same in the great out doors. When he wasn’t tending to business he could most likely be found on one of his boats or under the water in diving gear. P.A.D.I. Dive Master Dennis has over 3500 dives under his belt! You can certainly say he loves the sport and sharing the magic below the sea! With the family grown and the ocean calling, Dennis and Stephanie liquidated their land based treasures and headed for the Caribbean. They have since logged over 5000 miles sailing the Caribbean and Atlantic ocean.

While Dennis is a serious captain, his spirit is enormously playful. His sense of humor and friendly demeanor will make you feel like you’ve made a friend in an instant. This Master Captain has also earned his title of Grill Master and Chief omelet aficionado! Join Captain “D” as he shares those secret harbors of the Virgins on your next dream vacation!

Stephanie fell in love with sailing the Virgin Islands when her parents chartered a sailboat in the B.V.I.s at age 12. in her words, “It never quits being magical” immediately after college she was hired by a cruise line as staff in the Purser’s office. Consecutive one-week cruises for a straight 8 months didn’t put a damper on her enthusiasm for the industry, she moved into marketing and even spent 2 years using her industry knowledge for the production of a travel T.V. series, Tourific Destinations on the Discovery channel. Years later when Dennis suggested he wouldn’t mind giving up a land based home for sailing, she was “All In! ”

Travel and sailing combined with Stephanies talents in the culinary arts have been a dream come true! Her attention to detail in the galley is unparalleled. On board guests quickly nicknamed her “Saucy Stephanie” as she has an uncanny ability to combine flavors to please the palette! She also has a wide variety of gluten free, pescatarian and vegetarian delights!

Captain D and Stephanie love to share their enthusiasm for the places and people of the Virgin Islands, and they look forward to introducing their guests to this beautiful part of the world while creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Good Vibrations L62 Guest Reviews

November 2018

Dear Stephanie & Dennis:
Wow! What a great trip. I think the best ever for Ava and me. As you are aware we had been on several bare boating trips in the BVI , Grenadines and Tahiti, but this trip takes all the concern or worry about sailing out of the equation. Dennis, your knowledge of the area and the boat was fantastic and eliminated all worry or concern. Which means complete relaxation. Stephanie is a very talented chef and the food was incredible. You guys simply waited on us hand and foot and we could have not felt more pampered. I really had forgotten about the beauty of the water and you put us in the best spots for snorkeling, the best bars, and sites. Also, amazing staterooms, very comfortable and cool. We cannot thank you enough for an incredible trip!!!
Best Wishes for a happy and prosperous holiday season and New Year.

If you are on the fence about whether or not to book a chartered cruise to the British Virgin Islands, trust me, book your trip with Dennis and Stephanie of the Good Vibrations and you will have the time of your life. Dennis is the coolest captain in the Caribbean; fun loving, he knows all the best spots on and off shore and seems to know everyone on the islands. Foremost, however; he is an expert skipper. I’ve been around sailing all of my life and could tell immediately that his first priority was for the safety of the passengers and crew and that he had the skills to handle his well-appointed ship in any condition. He is joined by his lovely and hard-working first mate Stephanie who is literally a jack of all trades, but in particular a star in the galley. The meals that Stephanie prepared for us were both delicious and visually appealing and met the dietary needs of everyone aboard. These two are caring people who want you to have a great time and we recommend the Good Vibrations without reservation!

Dear Stephanie & Dennis –

Just wanted to write you a note to tell you much we enjoyed our sailing charter with you guys! Pat and I had been looking forward to this trip for a couple of years. It took us a long time to put together a group of people that we thought would be compatible and then convince them to go with us. We were anxious about how the group would get along, and what it would be like to spend an entire week in such close quarters, with the added unknown of a captain and first mate whom we’d never met. But WOW you guys just fit right in with the group and made us all feel like we had known you for years and made us feel right at home on your lovely sailboat!

The boat itself was decorated with such charm and the furnishings had such a lovely Caribbean feel. Every picture seemed to have its own story and we could tell that the boat was decorated with love in every detail.

As the meals were served each day, I always marveled at how Stephanie was going to outdo herself at the next meal. Somehow she did it every time tho! The meals were absolutely delicious and every day brought a new spice or food combination. I am still impressed that you could prepare meals that were so delicious every single time we sat down. And they were always plated so beautifully too!

Somehow, Stephanie snuck into our cabin every day and made the bed and straightened our messes. This was always such a nice surprise! I just don’t know how you kept track of who was where all of the time so that you knew when you could take care of our cabins.

Another amazing thing was that each day we arrived at another island with Captain Dennis describing our choice for the day: Do you want to swim? Snorkel? Hike? Stay onboard and read? Go to shore for a walk on the beach? Visit the local scene of food or shopping? All of the above? Dennis also seemed to know just what we wanted and when we wanted it. The daily afternoon painkiller helped round out each day of fun and relaxation.

It was great to enjoy your sailing expertise and watch you take care of your yacht.
It was so great getting to know you guys and having you join in the fun. The fact that the two of you love your job made our vacation spectacular. You guys are the Rockstars on Steroids!!!
We sincerely miss you! Happy Holidays!

Dennis and Stephanie,
Thank you for making our first trip to the BVI one for the books! You two make a great team and you didn´t miss a detail. We will miss this place you get to call home, but most of all we will miss y´all! Please come visit us in Austin some day.

Love,
Maureen and Jesse

Dearest Stephanie and Dennis,
We have been on a lot of amazing trips to a lot of beautiful places, but his one tops the list, and the two of you deserve the credit. There is not a single day, experience or meal that we would have wanted differently. You are a great team, and we are so happy to have you as friends. It took us 30 years to get back here and we are already thinking about the ´next time´ - we look forward to sailing with you again, and to hosting you in Austin! Please come visit anytime. Thanks for everything you did to make this the trip of a lifetime - just as you promised.

Much love,
Keith and Sue

A wonderful time...

Sandra and I and the boys all agreed of the 3 charters we have now been on this was the best and it was because of the crew. You and Dennis were great and we really had a great time.

Dennis was great in taking us diving so many times and showing the boys how to catch lobsters which they loved doing and Dennis showing Mathew how to raise the sails and trim them. And of course you making wonderful meals and keeping us all satisfied and content. It was a great trip “Thank you both”.

We are thinking maybe we could join you in the fall as our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend is Oct 8th. So at this point maybe we fly down Like Oct 4th or 5th and back 8th or 9th.

Let’s mark that in for now and we will keep you informed.

Sandra flew out west with Mathew and Ethan the day we got back for a little skiing and they get home late tonight so I will see what pictures Sandra has and get copies from her.

Again we had a wonderful time with you and Dennis and hope to see you in the fall.

Sincerely: Steve, Sandra, Mathew, Nathan and Ethan

One of the best vacations ever taken...

It was one of the best vacations that I have ever taken. A true adventure in paradise. Dennis and Stephanie are very laid back and a lot of fun. They took us to great locations with incredible diving and snorkeling spots, crystal clear water, great coral and sea life. Dennis helped me catch an 8 pound lobster on one of our dives and then they cooked it for us for dinner. What a treat!!! They are flexible and let us make our own itinerary and Stephanie´s food was great. For dinner we had grilled steaks, pasta, grilled scallops, grilled pork tenderloin and shrimp tacos. All the food was awesome, I did not have a bad meal the whole trip, I think I gained about 5lbs.
If you are looking for a very laid back, casual vacation where you will get a chance to Really RELAX and truly experience island life on island time.
This is for you.

Treat of a lifetime

Just came home from one of the best vacations ever. Captain Dennis was awesome. He knows boating, sailing, diving, snorkeling, and grilling. He took us to some of the most beautiful dive and snorkel locations with clear blue water and plenty to see. Head chef Stephanie made a Gourmet meal ever night. Mango salsa topped shrimp tacos, cherry ginger sauce on pork tenderloins, mushroom sauce on rib eye steaks etc.... Sitting on the front nets while sailing the clear blue sea was a treat of a lifetime.

Once in a lifetime experience!

This was the best trip, ever!!! My fiancé and I had the time of our lives! Dennis and Stephanie knew all of the most beautiful hot spots! Everyday was something new and amazing. The boat is beautiful and Dennis and Stephanie are a BLAST to hang and party with! The meals they prepared on the boat were also amazing! This charter totally exceeded our expectations. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a once in a lifetime experience!

Wonderful trip

My wife Lisa and I stayed aboard KNOT ANCHORED (previous boat) with Captain Dennis and Chef Stephanie for a week after Thanksgiving 2017 and we’d like to share our comments. First off, Dennis and Stephanie were very busy and flexible to get the boat prepared as it was a last minute substitution for the boat originally booked that had been damaged in the hurricanes. Their ability to jump in and get lots of things working for us really saved the day and allowed us to have a great charter week when things were looking pretty dicey.
Their attention to detail and caring attitude came through every day and we were made to feel at home every moment. The sailing, snorkeling, dinghy rides, hikes and lounging time were all perfect. Chef Stephanie provides a very warm and hospitable reception on board and the meals and snacks and drinks are outstanding. Being served in such a friendly and cordial manner are enough to make us feel very spoiled indeed.

Thank you Dennis and Stephanie for making our 30th wedding anniversary very memorable and thank you for your ´can do´ attitude and willingness to work through mechanical challenges to ensure a great trip for us. We really appreciate it.

BVI

My better half and I went on a charter with them for 2 weeks... It was amazing! Dennis and Stephanie took us to all the incredible locations through the US Virgin island and British Virgin islands. The food was incredible. I would definitely recommend them!
