Jack and Kaycee and Island Hoppin!

Way to work hard, but make it look easy. You cant be this successful unless you do really care for other people. The vibe of the trip was so chill yet very professional chef, boat captain, divemaster, smiles, and laughter every day. Cant really think of anything to improve.

Thanks for the trip of a lifetime!

January 2022 USVI Charter

Thank you Jack and Kaycee for introducing us to the beauty and fun of the USVI. Each day brought a new adventure - snorkeling in uninhabited coves, hiking into the petroglyphs, or sailing past so much natural beauty. Jack is an expert captain who managed the boat exceptionally well. Kaycee kept us well fed with an incredible menu of gourmet foods. We felt so well taken care of. Island Hoppin’ is an incredible charter experience and we are leaving with amazing memories!

January 2022 USVI Charter

We cannot thank Captain Jack and Kaycee enough for making our week of sailing in the USVI the most memorable vacation of our lives! Each day was filled with a new destination and the gourmet food was unbelievably delicious! Island Hoppin’ is a beautiful boat and the hospitality that Jack and Kaycee provided went above and beyond what we ever expected. It was a dream vacation that these 4 couples had been planning for over 2 years. When we postponed a year ago because of COVID, we were so disappointed, But.... it was definitely worth the wait!!! Thanks again for everything! We have so many memories of this great week!

Christmas USVI Charter 2021

Our family gifted ourselves a Virgin Islands trip for Christmas, but we also got a surprise Christmas gift; and outrageous week of memorable first time experience on Island Hoppin with Captain Jack and Chef Kaycee. The meals were gourmet quality preparations of fresh fish, prime quality meats, sauces, and accompaniments that easily equalled any fine dining restaurant. Captain Jack’s knowledge of desirable Virgin Island destinations made each day a new adventure! Best of all Jack and Kaycee’s hospitality mentally made us feel welcome and simultaneously well served. A great trip on a great boat with fantastic people!!!

The Berfelds!

December 2021 USVI charter

We had an amazing time! It goes without saying that the scenery was outstanding and the catamaran superb.

Captain Jack and Kaycee were fantastic hosts. They went above and beyond to make sure every day was a great day! They were extremely flexible and gave us options each day. They both have a great sense of humor and put up with our cheesy jokes. Kaycee did a wonderful job making sure our food preferences were met and every meal was delicious. They were gracious, kind and so very accommodating. Best of all, they made us feel like family and we will forever remember our time with them.
In short, we had an outstanding time on an amazing boat with fantastic people!

Dec. 2021 USVI Charter

My wife and I have never taken a vacation like this before. We booked this trip with our friends several years ago, and it was originally scheduled to take place in March 2020. A day before we were flying into St. Thomas, the world shut down due to COIVD and our trip was postponed. Needless to say, we were extremely disappointed.

They say things happen for a reason. And while we didn’t know it then, this delay turned out to be a true blessing! I honestly do not believe there is a better, more perfectly matched team to “handle” our group than Captain Jack and Kaycee. And I say “handle” because we can be a handful.

Jack and Kaycee were extremely personable and made us comfortable and relaxed from the very beginning of our journey. They both were knowledgable and professional, and it was evident from the start they wanted us to have an amazing vacation specifically tailored to our wants/desires. They had complete command of their responsibilities and ensured all safety procedures were followed - seamlessly taking great care of the catamaran and us. Their knowledge of the Virgin Islands helped us pick destinations that made our trip memorable.

Island Hoppin’ is a wonderful catamaran. It is well maintained and the decor and amenities made it feel functional, yet homey at the same time.

Now at the end of the trip, I truly feel as though we connected with Jack and Kaycee in a way I never would have expected. While our time here on the catamaran is done, I’m excited (and a bit jealous) for future guests who get to experience the Virgin Islands on Island Hoppin’ with Jack and Kaycee - they are in for the best trip of their lives.

In closing, I will say this vacation completely exceeded our expectations. We are already making plans to book our next trip!
