Luna Bliss Guest Reviews

Previous Yacht NameSeaU
Christmas Trip

There is something magical casting off from shore and leaving the land behind as you set out on an adventure on the ocean. Our family wanted to experience a sailing vacation for Christmas. Dillon Ihlefield from Yacht.Vacations was the first person to respond to our inquiries. He was responsive, informative and guided us through the process seamlessly. Dillon introduced us to Cap’n Blaine from SV Abundance. The rest is a pile of happy salt-soaked selfies.

Cap’n Blaine hoisted sail, took us to beautiful bays, showed us the underwater coral gardens blooming with tropical fish. Cap’n Blaine’s first mate and chef extraordinaire, Leala constantly surprised and delighted us at meal time. We asked for seafood and Leila served it in spades. But she kept us guessing with
a wide range of recipes, she also whipped up a vegetarian alternative for our friend.

Every day was an adventure. Christmas lunch we ate tacos at a floating restaurant called Lime Out in Coral Bay. Definitely the most fun way to eat tacos. Cap’n Blaine knows these waters. From where to moor and where to snorkel. He knows the history of the islands. He’s a good skipper and a good bloke.

The Virgin Islands are beautiful, the water is clear and warm and there’s lots of sea life. One week is not long enough. Even so, we came back to shore happier and healthier and the better for seeing the world from a different perspective.

Amazing Trip

We had an amazing trip. Boat is spacious and stocked with all the ingredients you need for an awesome time in the Bahamas- snorkel gear, paddle boards, towels, underwater camera, and many other accoutrements. Whether you’re looking for adventure or just to relax, Captain Pete and his amazing sidekick/hostess Leala will make it happen. You can explore caves and island ruins, go hiking or seek out interesting sea life, and then finish off the day with a cocktail on a gorgeous, obscure beach, away from the tourist stuff (unless you like the tourist stuff-and he can help with that too!). There’s a tv with a dvd player in case you want to watch movies as you drift off to sleep. I can’t say enough about how perfect a hostess Leala was. She made us a yummy breakfast everyday and cocktails in the afternoon and was so sweet, coming with us to excursions and taking pictures whenever we’d forget. The two of them had just the right balance of spending time with us and letting us be, as on any boat trip with a captain this can be a concern. I highly recommend anyone to book Captain Pete and can’t wait to go back, as this was one of the best trips I’ve ever had!

Awesome Experience!

Always wanted to know what it might be like to Island hop in the Bahamas. Now I know! Loved it! Awesome Experience! Spent 5 nights on Bullship for a father-daughter adventure. Capt Pete and Leala took very good care of us. We shopped together for provisions. Leala cooked a hot breakfast for us every am. She helped us with other meal prep as needed. (Not to mention delicious rum drinks anytime upon request). Nice way to relax and end the day! They were both accommodating, friendly, and genuine! Beds were comfy, and hot shower too!
