Okeana Guest Reviews

Fantastic Vacation!

This was a fantastic vacation! Jane and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with our daughter, her husband, and our two granddaughters. Captain Dal and Mate JJ made this a memorable time. Dal knew all about the islands and he did a wonderful job of not only being our Captain, but our tour guide as well. JJ used our Preference Sheets to prepare meals that were ´over the top´. The weather was good, the islands were great, and the boat and crew fit us perfectly. Okeana was just right for our needs. Having four cabins not only allowed the grandparents and parents to have their own cabin, but the two granddaughters also had their own separate cabins. This was a huge plus. We loved spending time on the Top Deck and Fly Bridge (cool breezes). A lot of time was spent on the Fore Deck ... sunbathing and playing
board games. Having air-conditioned cabins made the evenings very comfortable. The boat was well maintained, and Dal kept everything spotless during the days.

Trip was perfect!

Our family of 5 and my sister in law spent a week sailing in the BVI on the “Okeana” in July 2021. Our captain was Raphael (“Raph”) Marshall-Naef, and our chef was Isabel Sollberg. Everything about the trip was perfect. Raph is a great captain with lots of experience sailing in the BVI, and he took us to all of the best snorkeling spots and fun locations like Soggy Dollar and Willy T’s. Isabel’s cooking was amazing. Best of all, Raph and Isabel are two of the nicest and most fun people you could meet. Our family has done a lot of traveling and everyone thought it was the best trip ever. We all highly recommend Raph and Isabel, 10 out of 10 stars!!

Amazing Week on Okeana!

We spent an amazing week sailing the islands of the BVIs on a 49 foot catamaran, the Okeana! She is a beautiful yacht with a great open design. The best part of the Okeana is the crew. The Skipper, Raph is knowledgeable of the waters and attractions, super competent and confident. He made sure we had a safe, fun and relaxing adventure. Isabel, the chef catered to our every culinary and dietary need. Each meal was beautifully presented and delicious! Isabel took great effort to accommodate to each of our dietary restrictions and tastes. This was a first sailing charter for most of our party and everyone had a great time! We will definitely be back!
