An Amazing trip
WOW! What an amazing trip. We can not thank you enough for your hospitality. Rich, your meals were outstanding and Lisa, your positive and fun vibe while doting on us throughout the trip was the icing on the cake. The way you both work together, seamlessly, to give us all a trip of a lifetime is so appreciated.
We are walking away with many fun memories and hope to return for more in the future.
All the best, Marie

Experience of a Lifetime
No words can fully describe the special week we had with you both. We knew this trip would be an indulgence and it really was in every single way all of us felt indulged,special,looked after and cared for! From the sushi that greeted us, to the soufflé we ended with, to the endless cocktails. The deliciousness for our bodies and the peacefulness for our minds was the perfect antidote to all of our busy lives! We will all treasure the continuous laughter and joy we experienced with incredible snorkeling,hikes,exploring all the different beaches (and bars).You both are truly gifted for making us feel so welcomed to your sea home. We can’t wait to come back. There have been so many incredible and hysterical memories, from the rap music, coffee talk in the morning and to many other indulgences to comment on. We love you guys and thank you for an experience of a lifetime.

Lasting memories, Lasting friendships
We have had a memorable tour of the BVI and were spoiled rotten by Lisa And Rich. Catering to our every need. Rich, the food INCREDIBLE and delicious. Our mixologist ( grill master Lisa) made the perfect cocktails to keep us well hydrated during our stay. Thank you Rich and Lisa for the trip of a lifetime....one will not forget!

Truly Special Vacation
Our second trip to the BVI’s but first with Rich and Lisa. We couldn’t have imagined a better trip than our first but Rich and Lisa delivered and then some! We spent 10 glorious days being pampered, catered to and fed 5 star meals by Rich and Lisa. The boat, the food and the gracious nature of you both made this a truly magical 10 days. Thank you Lisa for the constant pampering and your service oriented nature. Every time we tried to lift a finger, you were there. You made our stay feel like we were Kings and Queens. And the cocktails!!!!! Thank you Rich for you world class meals, each one feeling like it was a labor of love. You are an amazing chef. Thank you also for your selfless nature, willing to take us wherever you thought we’d be most happy. The boat is great, the islands magical, but the host are what make this a truly special vacation. We’ll be back.

Another life changing week
Captain Witchdoctor and Master Chef Hodge,
Another life changing week come and gone. This place and this boat are unbelievable by themselves but the company is still far and away the real game changer. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute hanging around you two and hope to see you again. I consider you both close friends now and will be of service to you both if there is ever anything I can do for you. Thanks so much for being so kind, gracious, witty, funny, and tolerant. I love you guys! - Patrick
You guys are two of the best people I know and it´s been such an amazing week. Seriously don´t know anyone as funny, kind, intelligent AND fascinating as you guys. You guys are real gems, just like everywhere you take us. Can´t wait to see you all again! :) - Kate
This was our second charter with Sam and Jon and we wouldn´t consider going with anyone else. They are that good! Jon´s confidence and knowledge of sailing make you feel completely comfortable and safe. Sam´s meals are better than most 5 star restaurants. She really knocks it out of the park each and every time. They both go out of their way to make your vacation as enjoyable as possible. I can´t say enough good things about them. We plan to come back every year. We love you guys! - Carol
By far my favorite trip I have ever taken. You two are amazing people. So thoughtful, funny, and outgoing. So happy we were able to join the family this time around and hope to see you guys again. Let us know if you ever make it to Texas! - Kathleen and Kevin
Wonderful trip. Wonderful time. Wonderful people. Amazing scenery everywhere. Gracious hosts and guides. Couldn´t have been any better!! Thanks for everything. - Gene
January 2017 5 Star +
I can only tell you that we have traveled the world extensively but have never experienced such a wonderful vacation!! Five star + Excellent captain and first mate/chef. The boat was beautiful, accommodating, and so very comfortable. You are both wonderful to travel with, extremely knowledgeable, and so very flexible. You are so easy going and fun and whatever we wanted to do - you made it happen! We will be back! - Andy & Diane
It is hard to put into words how much we LOVED ´sailing the seas´ with you. Everything was perfect from the moment we stepped onto Luar. You both make a wonderful team and made us feel so at home.
Sam, your meals were outstanding!! Jon, we can´t imagine having any other captain! Thanks for everything!! Hopefully we can plan another trip with you one day soon. This was the trip of a lifetime! - Linda & Jim
Thank you so much for a fabulous vacation! It exceeded all of our expectations. We loved each and every adventure! Jon - you are an amazing captain navigating us through safe seas. Sam - every meal was delicious. You are truly the best host and hostess! - Jim and Jeanne
New Year´s charter December 2016
Thanks for a fantastic week! My entire family had the time of their lives. Every site, every meal, every location choice was spot on. Thank you for your patience in answering all of our questions, most of which were repeated many times. The activities were endless and so much fun! The boat was really comfortable and we felt at home with you guys from the get go. We really cannot wait to come back! We wish you guys luck in the new charter year. We cannot recommend your charter highly enough. It was awesome! -David
Thank you for an awesome vacation. Out of my 12 years of life I have never experienced such an amazing and action packed adventure. The food and the scenery was like nothing before. I have always been scared of boats but you guys swayed me into a boat fan. Thank you! - Will
We adored our time on Luar and it was all because of you. Your desire to make our week fun and relaxing exceeded our wildest expectations. Thank you for all you did for us....from planning the perfect locations, fun activities, delicious meals, endless hours of chess, or making sure our glasses were always full (wine, coffee, or painkillers). We had the trip of a lifetime and hope to experience it again with you. We hope you have a wonderful year! - Cheryl
Thank you so much for such an amazing week. i was skeptical about living on a boat for a week but it is safe to say that I thoroughly enjoyed myself and thats all because of your help and hospitality. The food, activities, knowledge; everything made the trip seamless and tons of fun! Hopefully we come down here again soon and I will be sure to beat you (Jon) in chess this time. All the best and thank you! - Ethan
I had a great time on your boat. I loved playing chess and eating great food. Also thanks to Jon for chasing after lost footballs all week. The boat was perfect along with everything else on the trip. - Max
