follow him into adulthood.

Josh became a scuba instructor in the hopes that he could explore exotic places. This has led him to have a myriad of jobs all over the
Caribbean. He has worked on some of the most notable liveaboards and worked in partnership with companies like National Geographic.

His diving resume is impressive giving him a comfort and ease underwater. Noticeable as he serves as Ohana’s lead dive instructor. Josh also has a knack for engineering which is crucial to
his role as the mate.

´impossible to beat´ | Dec. 28-Jan. 4, 2024

We did not know what to expect getting onto the beauty, Ohana. Therefore, it´s hard to say it has exceeded expectations...rather, it has set expectations for all other experiences that will most certainly be, impossible to beat. Thank you - Erika, Emily, Cory + Captain Tyler, for an extraordinary week that has been fun, relaxing, educational, and in many ways transformational. We will never forget this. XO, Chiara + Dan

WOW! The beauty + majesty of this vessel is ONLY exceeded by it´s crew! Thank you Captain Tyler, Cory, Emily, + Erika for making such an impact on a great human´s 50th birthday in his happy place with wonderful friends! Best Always, John + Jen

´Our next goal is to return´ | Dec. 28-Jan. 4, 2024

All John wanted for his 50th birthday was to be at Soggy Dollar Bar with dear friends. As soon as we stepped foot on Ohana we knew we were going to have a fabulous week! The crew - Captain Tyler, Chef Erika, Emily + Cory were nothing short of amazing. Their dedicated service of making sure every piece of our travels was perfect did not go unnoticed. You truly created a trip of a lifetime for all of us. Our next goal is to return. Wishing nothing but the best on the open waters <3 Lisa + John

´Very few things in life surpasses expectations, but this blew all expectations + anticipation out of the water´ | Dec. 28-Jan. 4, 2024

When our friends the Steel´s invited us on a charter boat in the BVI for John´s 50th birthday, we looked forward to the trip for a whole year, but no amount of time could have prepared me for the dream trip we had. Very few things in life surpasses expectations, but this blew all expectations + anticipation out of the water like the Army Corps of Engineers blasting the R.M.S. Rhone. Thank you for EVERYTHING - taking us on early morning hikes, sunrise yoga, answering all our silly landlubber questions about sailing, feeding us, guiding us, teaching us, and allowing us to be part of your Ohana for a week that we will never forget!

Tyler - thanks for knowing I could do anything that made me hesitate. Cory - you´re truly a jack of all trades + an inspiration to always keep learning! Emily - I will strive to be half the hostess + kind heart person you are! Erika - thank you is woefully inadequate for what you did this week. The gift of being taken care of that you gave us is truly priceless + I will always remember how hard you worked, whenever I think I can´t spend one more minute in my kitchen! I am also going to keep it much more organized now that I´ve seen yours!

Thank you, Bill + Meredith

´the most extraordinary adventure´ | Dec. 28-Jan. 4, 2024

How in the world can I put into words what an amazing experience this was for all of us from the very first moments to the end and everything in between? I really can´t, but will try! You guys made this the most extraordinary adventure. You created an environment that allows everyone to truly be themselves and enjoy life! We were so fortunate to have the four of you as our guides. Each one of you has such special skills that work so well together to create such a memorable experience for everyone. I am so thankful to have met each of you (Rik is too!). You guys inspire us to live life to it´s fullest. You taught us so much about our beautiful world and I feel so lucky that we got to spend this fabulous week with you. Thanks for making John´s Bday so fantastic. Your attention details did not go unnoticed and it was very much appreciated! We all really appreciated the pampering!! As I said, it was only a week, but we are family now! Good luck on all your next adventures - I can´t wait to see where the wind takes you! Love, Elizabeth + Rick
