Isolablue Crew Profile
Captain Laurent Geslin
Laurent grew up in Paris, France. Urban life did not deter this water baby, who learned to swim and sail a Laser 420 as a child, and to scuba dive at the age of 12, with level three qualifications at 16 years old. He moved to Switzerland when he was 22 years old, purchased a Laser 2, and spent all his free time trimming the sails on Lake Geneva.
Laurent graduated college with a degree in economics and enjoyed a long career in the Swiss private banking industry as a stock exchange trader and operations specialist. In addition to his job as a banker, he co-owned a dive shop and school. Laurent is a high-energy individual that thrives on keeping busy, so he also played bass and guitar in a local band. Laurent is a qualified PADI Dive Instructor. He also holds Swiss cert. of competence for ocean yachting / BVI Boat Master.
In 2015, Laurent and his wife Astrid decided it was time for a life change. They bought a catamaran and set off to sail the Mediterranean Sea. They skimmed past Gibraltar in 2016, spent two months in the Canary Islands and three months in the Cap Verde Islands before crossing the Atlantic. It was love at first sight when they reached the Caribbean, and they´ve decided to stay for quite a while.
Laurent is an expert Captain who enjoys sharing his knowledge and passion for Caribbean sailing with his guests. His motto: living your dream is always better than dreaming your life. Charter ISOLABLUE with Laurent and Astrid. Isn´t it time to live your dream?
Chef Astrid Geslin
Astrid had an enchanting childhood. She grew up with her brother and sister close to Luzern, in the heart of Switzerland, near the Alps and next to the Lake of Lucerne. Nestled in this picture-postcard landscape was her parents´ restaurant. Even as a very young child, Astrid loved to help with the cooking. Growing up cooking, serving and eating fine food proved a joyful inspiration. However, whether they be lakes or seas, water has always been her passion: sailing, diving, windsurfing, and swimming. Astrid is a qualified PADI Dive Master. She also holds Swiss cert. of competence for ocean yachting / BVI Boat Master.
For over 20 years, Astrid worked in Geneva, Switzerland as a Human Resources executive. One of the great benefits was the extensive, international travel the job required to start-up offices in Zürich, Paris, Milan and elsewhere. In between these working adventures, she and husband Laurent spent as much time as possible sailing their boat across the waters of Lake Geneva. Astrid obtained Sailing Certification for Lakes, then passed the Swiss Certificate of Competence for Ocean Yachting. It was a perfect time to sail to new horizons.
Astrid is always happy to receive guests and share moments of discovery and joy. “Every charter is a rewarding, new, enriching experience made of encounters, good humor and fun,” says Astrid. “I speak fluent French, English and German, some Italian and Spanish. I try to welcome our guests in their own language and make them feel at home. I´m passionate about fine food from all over the world. My recipes are inspired from Mediterranean and Asian cuisine, but always with a French touch.”
While Astrid´s cooking consistently earns rave reviews, guests needn´t worry about gaining a couple of extra pounds. Astrid enjoys leading a workout, from on-deck yoga to a lap around the yacht, to a go on the water toys. And fun is always her leading motivator.
Astrid was awarded FIRST PRIZE at the Grenada Yacht Charter Show 2018 Culinary Contest! Well done Astrid!!
I wanted to present the 3 different colors of Grenada:
green for the fertile land;
yellow for the wisdom, sunshine, and warmth of Grenadians and
red for the people´s courage and vitality. The people here are what make the Island of Spice so unique.
The specified ingredient was Tamarin juice. My idea was to create a Tamarin reduction which I added in all three finger entrees.

Isolablue Guest Reviews
October 2021 in the Grenadines
Astrid & Laurent,
Exceptional experiences are often dulled by the absence of family and friends. Our exceptional experiences on this trip have been multiplied by both. Our list of favorites: swimming with the manta rays, diving with Laurent, snorkeling Horseshoe Reef, turtle watching, the lobster BBQ, and exploring the various islands – were even better because of your excitement as well. Our week can be summarized in one word. “Joyous!”. The joy of experiencing God’s creation up close, the joy of sharing music with friends, and the joy of a table filled with exquisitely crafted meals.
Astrid & Laurent, you have brought joy to our family and that is a gift beyond measure.

Grenadines Charter - 25 Nov - 5 Dec 2021
I want to let you know we had a really great time on Isolablue. The yacht was very well maintained and it was obvious Laurent and Astrid took great care and pride in the boat.
Talking of Laurent and Astrid, well what two great people. We enjoyed their company and their professionalism. Laurent was very happy to have me skipper the boat everyday which was exactly what I wanted as well as finding those great locations to snorkel and relax.
Astrid was an absolutely fabulous chef. As you know, we have been on bigger boats where the chef was flown in from New York or Miami, etc. I have to say that Astrid’s cooking and presentation was far above the others. She is passionate about it, creative, and the food was delicious. Every plate looked amazing.
The whole experience surpassed our expectations and both of us will stay in touch with Astrid and Laurent.
Early September 2020 in the Grenadines
What a wonderful long weekend. We particularly appreciated our discussions and the delicious meals you prepared for us.
A stay full of personal discovery and amazing places. You are really lovely, pleasant and we are so glad to have met new friends. Thank you for all the advices, the discussions and the lots of laughs it was an unforgettable vacation.
We thank you very much for the always so warm hospitality.
We had a great time with you and we look forward to welcoming you on our boat.
This short stay with you was enriching at all levels.
See you soon
23 Feb - 2nd March, 2020 in the Virgins – Memorable Experiences!
Dear Astrid & Laurent,
We would like to thank you for playing a central component in our first annual “friends group” bucket list. Your kindness, hospitality, fantastic meal preparation and graciousness can’t be matched. You have a lovely yacht that will surely serve as a measure for comparison for any future boating adventures we may consider. We would also like to thank you for allowing our non-scuba” companion to have a go at exploring the below the water world. You truly provided us with a lifetime of memorable experiences.
Best of luck and thank you again!

The charter was absolutely amazing, beyond our wildest expectations!
The crew was professional, accessible and accommodating! Our interactions with Astrid and Laurent were delightful. They accommodated our wishes without hesitation.
The yacht was well maintained. Everything was in great condition, very clean and well-maintained. (I have had a great deal of sailing experience on a variety of boats for over 50 years.)
The quality and presentation of the meals was Exquisite! The meals and presentations exceeded those we have had in fine restaurants and every bite was delicious!
We were satisfied with the cruising itinerary. They offered recommendations and feedback on destinations and were totally open to our requests.
Not to be repetitive, our experience went well beyond our every expectation! Beautiful yacht, wonderful hosts and an unforgettable experience! Our experience with Astrid and Laurent Geslin on Isolablue was extraordinarily wonderful!

1-8 February, 2020 in BVI´s
Astrid & Laurent,
We arrived unsure of what to expect. We found paradise! Every meal an exquisite work or art. Every anchorage or mooring private and peaceful. Every vista breathtaking. Glorious sunrises and sunsets, star filled moonlit skies to soothe one to sleep and blue, blue water filled with life to open one’s eyes to what is all around us!
Thank you both for sharing a small piece if your world with us! Your skills, expertise and advise all deeply appreciated.
We will never forget the wonderful memories that you have helped to create, this has been and absolutely wonderful experience, shared with beloved family and new friends.
P.S. This morning I joined a gang of tarpon on the hunt.
P.S.S. May you always have a good laugh remembering the bathing suite incident when you drop people off at the Baths!

A Winning Charter!!
´On behalf of my family, I want to extend our deepest thanks to you for facilitating our pairing with the Geslins on Isolablue for our charter! We all feel like we won the lottery! Of course, Isolablue is a beautiful vessel, but Laurent & Astrid are two of the loveliest people we have ever met.Their kindness, graciousness, and charm made this past week one of the most wonderful and memorable of our lives. We will always treasure our time with them.They were accommodating beyond any expectations, and ´spoiled´ us as we have never been ´spoiled´! We feel that we have made life-long friends.
All of us now dream of a day when we can enjoy their company again...´
Sincerely, John, Jennifer, Bill, Martha, Jim & Claudia
23 November - 7th December, 2019 - Martinique to Grenada
You have made it very easy for us to enjoy two happy weeks on your Isolablue. We are very grateful for your hospitality, your unavoidable commitment and your warmth. With that you have touched us deeply and opened our hearts. We wish you always a handful of water under the keels and look forward to seeing you again.

November 23 - December 7, 2019 - Windward Islands 5 Stars!!
The crew was friendly and accommodating, they went out of their way to fulfill any of our wishes long before we knew them. The yacht was absolutely clean and spacious. Very well shaded with many comfortable places to spend the day. It was well ventilated, and equipped with ventilators and a/c. The food was Superb, you would not think you were on a yacht. Incredible, what Astrid performed in her kitchen!
We loved the area that we sailed, the islands are colorful, the anchorages comfortable with great views on nature, the snorkeling great with many many fishes and a great diversity of corals.
Astrid and Laurent were outstanding! First of all very professional, very precise with security (on boat, while snorkeling, while diving), but then also experienced sailors, naturalists with a great knowledge, award winning cook (Astrid) and barkeeper (Laurent). They made all our dreams come true. They are very precious people and we are more than happy to get to know them.

November 2019 - A Beautiful Success!
We have just returned from a Caribbean cruise. If you are looking for outstanding charter yachts, I would like to briefly describe what we have encountered:
We were concerned to come to this area, on a foreign ship. We were very worried in regards to the quality, the sailing and cleanliness of the ship, the competence and hospitality of the owner couple and general concerns about whether the Caribbean has still anything to offer us. So we are all the more pleased that the holidays were a complete success.
The ship is very well equipped, both nautical and comfortable. The couple has been chartering for a while, which is reflected primarily in the ship´s command, but also in many good facilities for comfort and sun protection. There are also full snorkel and diving equipment, as one wants it to be. The ship is sparkling clean. Safety is not just written in big words but also lived all the time. In addition to the impeccable navigation, we very much appreciated the accompaniment with the dinghy during our snorkeling trips, be it because of the possible current or because of speedboats.
Our wishes regarding our sailing program were taken seriously and fulfilled wherever possible. For this, the two even took on the burden of a night trip. In addition, they surprised us with many beautiful places that we did not know from our time. They adapted to our thirst for discovery and spared no effort to move diligently the ship from place to place or even to include a snorkel passage in the morning before the departure. They even organized our shore excursions, which was very helpful.
Astrid and Laurent can be distinguished from the great mass of charter providers, this specially in the area hospitality / kitchen and diving. Astrid offers a very unusual luxury in the dining area: multi-course meals, very lovingly prepared with fresh ingredients and nicely presented (I was amazed, what she all prepared on fresh vegetables, we did not even dream about). We thought before the cruise that we would not choose a catamaran because of the food. I still think so, but the cuisine just tasted incredibly good, was a lot of fun and did us all so good. Laurent is a PADI dive instructor. He knows perfectly the beautiful snorkeling sites, looked for and found sharks for us and made it possible for me to dive with his calm and safe nature (I have not dived for 15 years!).
Astrid and Laurent love their lives and radiate that too. They are very open to their guests, totally uncomplicated and very professional. We have had so many inspiring conversations, laughters or simply spun « sailor’s yarn », that they really grew so close to my heart. I can highly recommend them to you.
I have dreamed of this trip, and you can certainly take it from me, that it was such a beautiful success.
Very Happy Clients
4-19 December 2018 - Thank you for these moments!
First of all, thank you for everything.
We had imagined our vacation before our arrival ... But it was not counting on your generosity and your kindness. Isolablue is a very comfortable catamaran to live on and we felt completely at ease. The day-to-day life will be difficult after having traveled so many miles. Astrid you have feasted us with your excellent dishes from morning to evening and the pretty culinary decorations for our ´Loulou´ were amazing. You radiate happiness and that´s great to see. Thank you for these moments, these breathtaking landscapes, these helpful tips ... We leave enriched from this vacation and convinced that we like the boat life, especially since no one has been sick and we found now our sea-legs.
Let’s go .. All we have to do is just sail away! We will get organized and develop our plan to have a life as fulfilling as yours. One thing is certain, we will be happy to see you again and share a thousand new things hoping to offer you a little rosé on our future catamaran, ah yes a beer for Astrid.
Good luck friends and see you soon
24-30th March, 2019 ~ Awesome birthday!
Dear Astrid and Laurent,
What a fabulous week! I will never forget my wonderful
birthday celebration and lobster lunch on Tobago Cays, it was a very special experience. I cannot find the words to express it.
We feel very fortunate to have met you both. Astrid, you have set the bar so high I fear I will have to go to cooking school to be able to compete with your restaurant quality meals. We cannot wait for our next trio aboard Isolablue! (for cooking lessons!)
The “P” Family
16-23rd March, 2019 ~ Vacation of “Firsts”
Dear Laurent & Astrid,
Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing, exquisite vacation for all. Although we did not see the “great white”, you have had the luxury of being on board with at least two great whites (and growing).
Isolablue and your warm, generous hospitality & entertainment joins the “one thousand places to visit” before you die. We are pleased we added to your musical repertoire - Tobago Cays lobsters, Mustique, Bequia, Canouan diving are memories we shall blissfully remember in our dreams and family reunions.
Thank you both so much for making our vacation of “firsts” a memorable and spectacular trip!! The mahi mahi catch was definitely a hit, along with the school of dolphins, Jim’s much anticipated tial dive and the island pain-killers & rum punch were all incredible, but it was the two of you that brought it all together to culminate into out top 3 trips ever!! Your dedication to your guests, the meals, my spa visit and St. Vincent tour are just a few of the details that speak to the level & your expertise and professionalism. Can’t wait for the book!
All the best,
The “V” Family
Note from Broker:
I am pleased to say both sets of guests said they had a wonderful time and really enjoyed everything. I have also made my colleagues aware and to not hesitate to offer Isolablue for their clients, feel free to also use me as a reference for other brokers.
Family Charter January 2019 - Truly Memorable!
As you know, we enjoyed every minute in Laurent’s company. He was friendly, kind and generous - and also an amazing Captain and Dive Instructor. Astrid is a spectacular cook and a joy to be around. Her infectious smile can’t help but set the tone for a great days adventure. We all had tears when we departed as we will truly miss their company!
The yacht was very comfortable for a family of 5 and extremely well organized, clean and welcoming. We loved the itinerary route and the time spent at each spot. The sports and leisure activities/equipment on board were all great!
The food far exceeds expectations, and this is from a family who have traveled the world dining at the finest places. Astrid really works hard in the kitchen and all meals were truly memorable and tasty!
Our broker was always on hand to assist and very friendly. We highly recommend it and plan to join Isolablue again one day. 5 Stars all the way around!!
The ´B´ Family
6-13 January, 2019 - Remarkable!!
Astrid & Laurent,
Too many thank you to list. Your unending hospitality was so appreciated. To go on a vacation and truly relax and be taken care of is a dream. To have that happen in the hands of such accomplished people - a pure treat. Getting to know you as friends and having the opportunity to experience a bit of your current life - pure joy. You both welcomed us into your home as strangers, but ended as friends.
We will figure out a way to take another trip under your care again. The experience was delightful, the good superior, the governing of the boat so competently organized, all the pieces created a very memorable vacation - one we will talk about for years. Thank you both. I truly hope our paths cross again.
Astrid & Laurent,
This past week has been one of the best and most memorable weeks of my life. I would not change a single thing about our trip, besides extending it :) I feel like every moment was perfection, largely due to your amazing hospitality. From almost the first moment I walked on Isolablue, I felt completely comfortable to be totally myself. From playing games to telling weird cat stories, I felt like we had already known you for years.
Thank you, Laurent, for certifying me as a PADI Advanced diver. You were an amazing instructor and guide and I truly think the night dive was one of my top 3 favorite moments of my life. Also, your boating skills were amazing and put us all at ease during our voyage.
Astrid, your cooking - wow. Every meal was mind-blowing. You’re absolutely a culinary genius and I’m afraid all my meals will seem boring after your feasts. Also, thank you for being my 2nd mom during the trip :)
Thank you both for such an amazing week. We’re not just customers, crew, or even just friends, I feel now we are family.
We will all miss you dearly.
Happy sailing, Love
Astrid & Laurent,
I can not thank you enough for making our vacation with you so much fun among family and I. It didn´t take best a start time with you to know this was going to be a special trip. Your boat was very comfortable, you had all the water toys and a great itinerary. but from my perspective the critical element was you. You started as captain and crew and ended up as friends.
The fact that Astrid is a world class chef was cherry on the cake. We will talk about her masterpieces for a long time.
Thanks again. I sincerely hope that we keep in touch and that our paths cross frequently.
Dear Astrid & Laurent,
I would write this in French but I don’t know if I can express it well enough.
I am still swaying with the waves :) Thank you so much for the fantastic voyage on the sea!! There were so many moments and experiences we had together that were so memorable in such a very short time. For me, this trip was an actual gift from God. I believe He has blessed your lives and that He blesses others through you. Your hard work and generous care did not go unnoticed. There were things done and said that were from your hearts that have touched me and changed me in special ways - a sweet « undercurrent » that is without words. I am not exaggerating nor do I want to « put you up on a pedestal ». None of us are perfect but what gifts you have, you have shared that with us: your hospitality, your fun, and most of all for me, your genuine kindness. Thank you. Merci pour tout et que Dieu vous bénisse. Please come visit us in California.
6-13 January, 2019 in the Grenadines ~ Spectacular!!
It was a good choice to have the hotel stay the first week! We took a few days to unwind doing nothing but swim and read at the hotel before even feeling like we were on vacation, so we are happy we didn’t do that during our boat time!! By the time we left the hotel we were ready to enjoy the whole time on the boat.
Laurent and Astrid were extremely good and conscientious hosts. They worked hard to make every detail fall in place for us to have a good experience.
The boat is in impeccable condition, the food over the top in presentation and taste and the concern for our enjoyment ever present.
The boat itself is a very comfortable layout -she did say the sharing of one starboard toilet -a ( a personal choice they made to create the bigger master shower on the starboard side) works better with family vs two couples. There is clearly one stateroom that is roomier overall ( one Todd and I were in) though all three were able to sleep two. -it was very comfortable and though it had nice air conditioning, if we had wanted it, the sea breeze at night was our preference as the hatches were perfectly placed to enjoy the air. The deck in front was very comfortable and even had a couple chairs -we preferred the trampolines which they had replaced with a very nice feeling product-one that does not leave you with big criss cross marks ! :). Bryn’s preference was the bow!
It showed how much they love their boat and their life. They enjoy sharing what they have with others which made it easy to be in their home.
Laurent and Astrid are both captains, dive masters and cooks. They felt that was important in their business in case one had an issue that they could switch jobs and the clients would still be taken care of. Amazing couple. Not only that, but they work well as a team and clearly enjoy each other. It was hard to say goodbye even after only a week. We all felt that friendships were made! We would certainly use them again.
Astrid’s food was over the top. Each meal was outdoing the one before. A piece of art. We felt excited for each meal and were sometimes speechless when consuming it as the tastes were so amazing. It was incredible -the diversity of her meals and the presentation. She loved to plate her food like art. We were in awe that she could do that with her small kitchen. A master of provisioning!
They were extremely careful to pay attention to our wants as he picked locations for us.
He was able to make it so Bryn moved to the Advanced dive level during the trip. That was a plus. They also enjoyed diving together. He was very clear and she a happy student!!
For my sister, who speaks French, it was extra special. We also found out Astrid’s mother tongue is Swiss German. And, they speak a bit of Italian. ( I can’t say enough about how much they bring !)
Our favorite spot was the Tobago Cays -swimming around and with turtles was a special treat. Esp for Bryn. She found one turtle that didn’t mind being touched.
I would highly recommend Isolablue-it was a great trip.
Now, thank you so much for finding this boat for us and for so diligently working with me to make it all come together. You certainly were a big part of pulling this off. So, thank you.
I think we are now all hooked on this type of vacation. And, I hope to work with you again. Thank you for all your time dealing with my details.
27th Dec - 3 Jan, 2019 New Years in Grenadines
Astrid & Laurent;
Wow – Could not imagine a better way to ring in the New Year than with you both, on a beach, enjoying lobster, champagne, music…..Our family has had such an amazing week with you both. Nowhere in the world, have we had such incredible hospitality.
Astrid, your fun company and amazing cooking skills are very inspirational. My new goal is to learn to cook like you! Amazing!!
Laurent, thank you as well for the constant enthusiasm with my divers and the tasty evening cocktails. Everything was so special, perfect and we can’t wait to join you again on another family trip of a lifetime!
Le voyage était formidable! Merci beaucoup. Thank you so much Laurent for the incredible sailing, diving, music and dancing. The hospitality, food and wine were wonderful and we can’t wait to come back and sail with you again.
Thank you for all of the funny memories and great music!
Thanks for the great dives and great food and company!
Thank you for all the wonderful food and funny, funny moments!
Magical dream come true
Many thanks for making our dream a reality. This trip with you was simply magical, and in addition to discovering new paradise islands, we met two very beautiful people, and enjoyed every anecdote or experience you shared with us, just like the culinary delights of the Chef! We are already longing to come back for new adventures around Antigua. Good luck and see you soon, Pascale & Christine
Thank you for these 3 unforgettable days.
Initially, I was just an added patch, as a ´leech´ journalist who has been hanging on to Jo and Leila for a long time. This is my last trip to the Caribbean. We had planned to leave the 4 (with Sylviane) to Union. 2 days before my arrival, I am told: ´We will go by boat with Swiss people, it will be great´. I did not know what to expect ... Arriving on Isolablue, it´s as if we arrive in the extension of our house. Laurent and Astrid welcome you with such kindness and considerate care that after 5 minutes you feel at home! Finally, even better than at home! Because when Astrid goes in the kitchen, the mets delight the taste buds one after the other. Appetizers, main course, desserts, all the dishes follow each other like in a gastronomy restaurant except that the terrace has a view .... on the turquoise sea .... Through the sharing and confidences, adventures under and on the water, crashes of drones, aborted battles of Pancakes, wet rides on Junior, rum punch, the links are tightened to reach all the same conclusion: L & A, you are MAGNIFICENT full of KINDNESS, GENEROSITY, WILLINGNESS of SHARING and LOVE to the Others. Thank you for these 3 unforgettable days.
Everything was just magic
3 days between Tobago Cays and Union. It was great to be able to discover your passion and your universe. Jo summarized our trip with you already. So I write you a few words to thank you. Good food, your kindness, your good mood and moments of unforgettable sharing. One thing is certain, we will come back. And this time baby will be in our arms. A big thanks. Many kisses and see you soon under the Caribbean sun. Thank you, everything was just magic, your welcome, your kindness, the exchanges, I had the impression to know you for a long time. I hope to see you again for new adventures, in the meantime I embrace you very sincerely. Sylvianne
Leaving Union for the first day in paradise
Hello friends, A huge thanks for these 3 days of madness in your company. Leaving Union for the first day in paradise. 15.06.18 Sailing to the Tobago Cays with the program to dive on the reef. Junior was not too capricious, the end of adolescence is approaching. Following this wonderful restaurant on the beach. 16.06.18 We understand Laurent you need directly 2 coffees. We did not loose time that day. Morning paddle, back to Union, Kite surf, again paddle, happy hour on Happy Island and pizza at Anchorage. 17.06.18 to summarize, we spent 3 days in your company and it was horrible, because it was much too short. This morning a pancake battle between Astrid and myself, but I´m sure you´ll win because we ate so well these 3 days. Thank you, thank you and thank you to all of you 4: L&A and J and Isolablue. Big hug and fair wind. We´ll see each other soon to make bubbles together and ride on Kites. I did not see everything but I heard you laugh a lot and I ate really well. Thank you.

Beautiful trip to the Caribbean
Dear Astrid & dear Laurent, Difficult not to repeat oneself, but we thank you very much for this beautiful trip to the Caribbean. From Martinique to Petit St. Vincent and back to St. Vincent, it was a wonderful trip to the rhythm of the Caribbean. Breakfast, diving, sailing, swimming, paddle, without forgetting the sacred time of the nap and after this the aperitif. We leave the head full of memories for the days of grayness in Switzerland. Cocktail for a successful holiday: Good mood
Tuna and Mahi Mahi, Rum, Nap, Diving, Good little dishes, Hugs E&G
Gradients of blue filled our eyes
Dear A&L, Gradients of blue filled our eyes, salty water deep in the gullet, kilos on the hips and in the buttocks, we come back rich of all these experiences and so happy to have been able to live each of these moments in your nice company. Thanks to Isolablue for having carried us so valiantly on the waves, even if our bouquet of flowers on arrival was shabby :) We are waiting for you whenever you want in the mountains for other shades of blue (sometimes) and some fat cheese experiences ... Thank you, thank you and thank you again. Congratulations for your choice of life and that every moment shall be sweet. L&N

Astrid has a love of Hippos - hence the story!
Thanks you A&L
Thank you Astrid and Laurent for this wonderful holiday!
This trip allowed us to see life on a catamaran and we loved it.
We boarded Isolablue without really knowing what to expect; we had a little idea but nothing more.This trip allowed us to see life on a catamaran and we loved it. It must be said that we had exceptional hosts, very accessible and full of attention. We also had a lot of laughs. They allowed us to live their passion with them for 6 days. What we received gave us the taste of reoffending. Astrid, the woman with 8 hands, has cooked us dishes without equal. We really felt that we were part of the family and that, since we boarded. My husband spent his ´Advanced´ scuba diving certification, he learned a lot from Laurent. Thank you for sharing with us your sweet and beautiful folly of the sea. We hope to see you in our island soon. S&L
A huge thank you for your welcome
Dear A&L, The words will not suffice to describe the moments we lived in your company on Isolablue! A huge thank you for your welcome, and for sharing with us your passion for the sea, good food and life. We couldn’t start the year better than on your side. See you soon, maybe in the Grenadines or in Asia. In the meantime, take care and have lots of nice encounters. Dear A and Laurent, I loved doing this trip with you. Great food and great diving. I would like to stay in touch to make a trip to Martinique .... Big kisses and see you soon N,E,J & M
A huge thanks for our first catamaran vacation
A huge thanks for our first catamaran vacation. We faced the elements with Laurent and A! Winds at over 40 knots! And this in all confidence with our daughter Maxine of 2 1/2 years. The meals were all exceptional! Especially when you know the conditions of navigation! Thank you for this refresh dive that has greatly pleased A. You were adorable with Maxine. See you soon L&A
A wonderful holiday
A&L, A and I had a wonderful holiday. It was such a good time spent with the team :) Diving - cart games of UNO - tanning - eating (mmh too good) - lots of laughs. It is with great pleasure that we will return aboard Isolablue to see other beautiful landscapes. It was a magical experience. A huge thanks to both of you.

Crossing wonderful Landscapes
We joined A&L at 14.03 in the evening for a stay in the Grenadines. We crossed wonderful landscapes, the islands St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Bequia, Tobago Cays .. my favorite with its transparent waters, turtles, our lobster dinner on the beach and our meeting with other French sailors. A big thank you to A&L for making us discover all this, their kindness, without forgetting the delicious dishes and breads of A. We will come back! Big kisses to both of you
It is with the Head filled with breathtaking landscapes
I’ll be back… and then guard yourself (he lost a Marlin fish on the line). It is with the head filled with breathtaking landscapes, wonderful moments, exchanges and sincere friendship that we leave today. Happy to have been able to share these unique moments with two unique people who we will sorely miss. Good luck to you and to Isolablue, do not change anything. Warm wishes
Dear A&L, A huge thank you
Dear A&L, A huge thank you for sharing with us a part of your trip. Diving, sailing, local markets, giant calamari, locusts, tiger sharks, giraffe and A´s excellent cuisine have made this holiday magical. Isolablue is a beautiful and feels welcoming like home, we felt right away like at home which allowed us to quickly disconnect and be carried by the wind (which was not always in agreement with us). We wish you many further wonderful adventures on your honeymoon and look forward to seeing you again on the other side of the Atlantic. Thanks again and lots of kisses
See you soon, any place, anytime.
Thank you for these good time with family and friends. Special ´thanks´ to L. for his extreme patience with A&V. and to A for the excellent meals. Fair wind
Beautiful stay aboard Isolablue
Yes, we are the second people who write into the book! Unforgettable holidays, a very good mix between good food and sailing, not to forget the cart games UNO :) Thank you for this dream vacation, we are already looking forward to coming back next year! A thousand kisses
Unforgettable holiday on board Isolablue
It´s crazy ! Unforgettable holiday on board Isolablue. All the ingredients were provided: friendly crew, irreplaceable Marina Mama, royal boat, delicious meals, pleasant sea baths, warm sunshine, extended aperitifs ... and much more. The observation is that you have made the right choice and that your project is on track (if we can say so). Isolablue has sails that itches and ask only to discover the world. Hauling the mainsail and fair wind, dear friends ... and see you soon. Somewhere around the world.
We have been amazed........
The boat left us speechless! Our stay was too short and we had only one big regret ... to stay at the dock (by my fault ... I specify before you protest). We did not say our last word and we will catch up in 2017 in the Caribbean ... well we hope with all our heart! In any case you realize your dream and it is a great happiness for you 2 but also for us. Seeing you as fulfilled and happy both makes us forget your distance and enjoying your trip by looking at your photos and consulting your site. Fair wind to you 2 and see you soon. Best wishes to you 2.
Many thanks for this beautiful trip to the Caribbean
Only love, happiness, and smiles during this wonderful vacation. We will never forget this night full of stars ... Thank you for your goodness A&L, we are looking forward to seeing you again. Many thanks for this beautiful trip to the Caribbean ... And if you need a sailor, I´m taking :) Z.
Two incredible weeks in pleasant company
We spent two incredible weeks in the pleasant company of A&L and we are sad to have to leave you and return to the Swiss winter. How lucky to discover the Caribbean, life on Isolablue, navigation (and diving for some of us) by their side. How lucky to have woven all these memories together. Beginning with the 14 hours of sleep of some people, the culinary wonders of Astrid and the delicious lobster of Laurent, the famous rains during dive, the rasta and their rasta-cigarette proposal anywhere, anytime, not to mention the number of animals we could cross (turtles, sharks, rays, dolphins, etc ...) our little expressions like: ´Chatambay into the water » (French expression) and finally, our famous 30 hours of relentless navigation. We go back to Switzerland, our head filled with memories, well rested with our sun quotas and good mood at a maximum. T&A
Whow! What a holiday!
What to say except that everything was perfect. An idyllic setting, ultra good food (thank you A for your cooking advice) and incredible dives (thank you L for the equipment & the pleasure of learning). I loved spending these two weeks with you and I look forward to the next vacation on Isolablue. A huge thank you for everything.
The Enchanted Cruise
A poem in A. Majestic like the queen of the seas, Isolablue was waiting for us at the port of Mogan,
The sweetness of the blue and white of our cruise, Softened strawberry red, banana yellow. A&L sweet harmonious blend. We boarded their beautiful home, Charmed by Isolablue, we were waiting for the time to leave, the harbor and to be amazed. Delicious foods prepared by magic.
The choice of beautiful places for our anchorages, Everything was dreams and invitation to travel,
Delicious meals and evenings with candles. Cradled by the waves and their light ripples. We slept in our cabins, like angels. Lucky to have, with you, nice exchanges. For those sweet moments of happiness, a thousand thanks.
A beautiful Charter, Kisses and fair wind
C. was so inspired to tell you how much he loved our stay on Isolable that I hardly dare to add anything, it was really great. There is only one fault: we eat too well; A´s cooking is so good that it´s very hard to go home and get back to cooking. We are looking forward to coming back. Kisses and fair wind
We love you and hope to share many more great moments with you.

Two unforgettable weeks on Isolablue
I experienced with A&L two unforgettable weeks on Isolablue. We sailed in the most beautiful bays of Porcerolle and Port Cros in Southern France. I loved it when we glided away with wind and full sails. I enjoyed the warm salt water, which was so good for my health, the beautiful sunsets, the moon shining across the sea, the splashing of the water and the gently rocking of the catamaran in the lapping waves during the night. How would I, old woman, have dreamed to be able to experience such an unforgettable holiday? I thank A& L from the bottom of my heart for the caring, considerate care and wish you a good trip into the future. Ship ahoy
