Great Adventure Description

Great Adventure is a modern, bright and spacious Lagoon 450 catamaran available for luxury crewed charter in the Caribbean and based in the Virgin Islands. This luxury catamaran sleeps up to 6 guests in comfort and style.

The stylish galley and saloon is tastefully designed and equipped. The saloon has wrap around windows, providing uninterrupted views during your yacht charter. There is also a chocolate leather couch in the main salon with matching leather stools.

This Lagoon 450 is fully air conditioned and has a high output reverse osmosis water maker, powered either by shore power or by a whisper-quiet generator, located away from sleeping quarters making for a peaceful night´s sleep during your luxury crewed yacht charter.

On deck, the Lagoon 450 boasts extensive seating both forward of the saloon and aft, as well as a large swimming platform, ideal to enjoy the crystal clear waters of the British Virgin Islands. The raised fly bridge gives a panoramic bird´s eye view at anchor and under sail. With a beam of nearly 26 feet, she is very stable, never heeling more than 5 degrees, with wide decks and recessed hatches, to make moving around the yacht a breeze and with enough space for everyone aboard to find their own favourite place to read, sunbathe or simply watch the ever changing seascapes go sailing by.

The spacious cockpit comfortably sits all guests around an ample table to make dining al fresco a pleasure. There is a ventilation hatch on the bridge deck, that funnels a cooling breeze into the cockpit area. 3 Double cabins provide spacious accommodation for all. For such a spacious yacht, she is surprisingly nimble, and the gulping shaped bridge deck makes her very comfortable underway, no slapping or slamming aboard this beauty, and you can hop between islands in under an hour, or choose to spend longer under sail. The choice is entirely yours during your cruise through the BVI.

Our Luxury Crewed Lagoon 450 is truly a superb yacht where the idyllic scenery, changes with every blink of the eye, as you sail through nature´s little secret, the beautiful island chain of the British Virgin Islands.

Captain Kristofor Olbrich

MARINE QUALIFICATIONS:
USCG 100 Ton Masters Near Coastal
FCC Marine Radio Operator´s Permit
STCW Basic Training
PADI & SSI Open Water Scuba Instructor
Emergency First Response Instructor

Kris was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. He grew up fishing off the local piers and beaches and got his first job as a teenager, working as a mate on a fishing boat.

While in college, he had a summer job at a local seafood restaurant, where he realized he had a passion for food. He decided to enroll in the French Culinary Institute. He went on to work as the head chef for restaurants around the world, from New York City, to St. John, USVI, Bangkok, and Hong Kong.

While in St. John, Kris fell in love with scuba diving. During his final open water training dive, a large dolphin swam up to him and spent almost the whole dive swimming with him. That´s what really got him hooked. Kris decided he wanted to spend as much time in the water as possible, and figured the best way to do so would be to become a Scuba Instructor. He worked for several years teaching and guiding dives on liveaboard boats in Thailand, Hawaii, and the Cayman Islands. He went on to get his Captain´s license and now while living in Brooklyn, Kris drives a private charter boat during the week, operating tours around Manhattan and to the Statue of Liberty.

Chef Aneta Siwiec

Aneta was born and grew up in Brooklyn, NY. She fell in love with travel and food early on, thanks to her mom, who dragged her to visit family and friends that were scattered around the world. Her dream has been to one day open a restaurant (already having a full menu created for her concept since in college). Starting out as a home cook she has turned cooking into a career by opening her own mobile food vending and an event picnic catering business. She takes inspiration for her food from her travels and believes in using fresh local ingredients.

She has a degree in Marketing and briefly worked in an office only to realize that she wanted more. She moved to Alaska on a whim and worked for a lodge at Denali Park, organizing and arranging tours. After a couple close exchanges with moose alone on hiking trails, and the season coming to an end, she bought a one way ticket to New Zealand where she worked and travelled for a year.

Back in Brooklyn she began working as an event coordinator. She longed for outdoor adventure and soon became a kayak safety boater and tour guide for the Brooklyn Bridge Boathouse, which is a free kayak program organized by volunteers.

Aneta has circumnavigated Manhattan by kayak and ran the NYC marathon twice. She is an Advanced Open Water scuba diver and is looking forward to completing her divemaster training. Her most exciting diving experience so far was swimming with Tiger Sharks and schools of Hammerheads in Cocos Islands. She hopes to one day have a whale interaction while in her kayak.

Great Adventure Guest Reviews

January 2020 USVI Charter

Sean and Liz,
What a pleasure our ´Great Adventure´ was with you! We are so blessed to have had the incredible experience for our family led by you. The snorkeling, history, hikes, sailing, meals, snacks... all was PERFECT! You were a joy to get to know and we were privileged to celebrate Sean´s birthday with you! May the Lord bless you for your ministry in serving others.
Sincerely,
Neal, Erin, Jackson, and Jett McCarty.

January 2020 USVI Charter

Dear Liz and Sean,
Look back twenty years from now, I hope you open this and see what a wonderful gift you gave us. We could not have asked for a better team to whisk us away all over St. John and St. Thomas. I hope you both remember our journey together full of card games, Liz´s fabulous cooking, charades, the giggles of Scott doing yoga, myself pole dancing and the smiles you had shared with us through it all. Many thanks and call us on your next adventure.
Love,
Heather and Scott

January 2020 USVI Charter

Liz and Sean,
Had a wonderful time. My expectations were extremely high and you exceeded them in every aspect. The attention to detail from the plating of the food, to the over the top service, and the great snorkeling, was top notch. My wife and I needed this vacation. You and Sean are kind and caring and we loved our week together. Please hit us up on Facebook or via email from time to time.
Thank you for the perfect trip.
Love,
Steve and Stephanie

January 2020 USVI Charter

Liz and Sean,
We really enjoyed our time with you. We appreciate your dedication and attention to detail in making sure this trip was as special as it was for all of us.
Beyond that we really want you to know what a treat it was to us for you to join us in our activities and really become an active member in our voyage together- that was special.
Thanks and the best to you both. We will stay in touch.
Josh and Mindy

December 2020 USVI Charter

Sean and Liz were amazing! My family and I were first timers and we are now counting down the days to our next trip! We adore Sean and Liz. Anything you want they will deliver on!! Can’t say enough about the trip and Sean/Liz!!

December 2020 USVI Charter

How did you enjoy your cruising vacation?
This was probably the most relaxing vacation I ever had.

How would you describe your Captain and crew? Were they Courteous? Helpful? Friendly? Attentive? Knowledgeable?
The five adjectives above are true, but so much more. They catered to every whim and were over-the-top with service, food, and flexibility.

Tell me about your meals? Did the menus meet your expectations? Did your Chef and Crew pay close attention to your Preference Sheets?
I cannot say enough about the food quality, freshness, presentation, selection, etc. Having been a chef and worked in the industry for 12 years, Liz does an expectation job and when we are not underway, Sean was amazing at helping to plate and serve food. There was a slight hiccup on one of the requested items, but they were able to find it on the second or third day.

How is the yacht? Is she clean and well-maintained? Were your cabins comfortable?
The yacht was in good shape and everything was in working order. Liz even tidied the cabins on a daily basis on top of waiting on us hand and foot.

What did you like most about the yacht? What did you like the least? If you could change anything, what would have made you happier?
As a foodie, that was the best part of the trip. A close second was being able to snorkel 3 or 4 hours almost every day.

How did you find the pace and the itinerary of your vacation?
Perfect. They were very flexible and attentive to our moods and wants.

Would you charter this yacht again? If not, please explain:
YES, YES , YES

December 2020 USVI Charter

Dear Sean and Liz,
Words cannot express our gratitude for the experience y´all gave us. Our trip has been a one in a lifetime event. Sean and Liz, you have been so kind and helpful, generous and sweet. We truly appreciate everything you provided us.
Many thanks and forever in our hearts.
Sincerely,
Dorriety family

December 2020 USVI Charter

Sean and Liz,
This trip goes down as our favorite in our books! From numerous turtles, snorkels, banana hammocks and painkillers we have had a truly magical time. You guys felt like old friends the second we got on the boat and for that, we thank you!
We definitely want to come back. We will miss you and Great Adventure. Thank you for all the memories, great food, and awesome adventures.
Love,
Kirsten and Edens Davis
PS. Check the guest cabin and make sure Edens has not stowed himself away!

December 2020 USVI Charter

Liz and Sean,
On December 18 we were met at the dock by your wonderful welcoming personalities and set sail. For the next 5 days we enjoyed snorkeling, night fishing, and exceptional meals. Your patience with the boys was tremendous and Marshall crying last night at ´Christmas Dinner´ should tell you all you need to know about how he felt. Now as we pull up to the dock to disembark, we are leaving new members of the family and not crew. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Love,
Izzy, Marshall, Seve and Chris

November 2020 USVI Charter

Dear Sean and Liz,
Thank you for making this one of the best family vacations we have ever had. The two of you are a great team and made this so much more than a nice vacation. It was a truly unique experience. You were our skipper, our cook, naturalist, guide, hostess, host, and yoga instructor. But most importantly, our friends and companions. The last six days and nights have been filled with joy and wonder. It has been quite a Thanksgiving and birthday celebration for Joe.
We are grateful and looking forward to doing it again with you next year.
Love,
Greg

November 2020 USVI Charter

Dear Liz and Sean,

-Nui and Jeff

November 2020 USVI Charter

Dear Sean and Liz,
We have so enjoyed our time on Great Adventure. From our first contact with you, we knew that you understood how special this trip was to our family and you took care of every want and need.
Thank you for showing us the beautiful USVI and planning such a thoughtful itinerary during these challenging times. We loved it all - the hiks, the birding, the snorkeling, Lime Out, the long sails, and the perfect mooring spots. The meals were delicious and healthy and we so appreciate the care you took to make Thanksgiving and Joe´s birthday special. We cannot wait to do it again.
Love,
Dawnee
