Harbour Island photo shoot January 2020
How are you?
I just wanted to send over an email to thank you and your Crew for the most amazing experience.
In our industry it’s hard to WOW crew members because of everything that we have seen on our travels but you guys managed to WOW every single one of my team members.
You picked the perfect location for us to anchor up so not only did we get the incredible shots of the Catamaran but we got the added bonus of that beautiful beach too.
You literally pulled out all the stops to make this an incredible shoot for us.
When the pictures have been retouched and released I will send them over to you so that you can use them, also If you have a postal address I will get some copies of the catalogue out for you to see as well, this won’t be dropping until April time but it’s always incredible to see it on paper and know that over 1million people will be getting a copy through their letterboxes.
It would be amazing to work together again in the future, I do freelance work on the side as well so will absolutely put you forward for any summer shoots that I work on and will also be in touch for more of the Crew shoots even if they aren’t in the Bahamas its nice to keep in touch.
Take care and speak soon,
Production Manager/Shoot Producer
New Years 2019-2020
New Year´s Vacation of a Lifetime
Our family of 6 spent 9 amazing days sailing down the Exuma Islands and ringing in the New Year in paradise. Capt Craig and Prami served us one amazing meal after another. We love Prami - she smiled for nine straight days. First mate Chris Jones took us on countless adventures every day. Trip of a lifetime!
Day Charter to Green Cay
Captain Craig and Prami
This was the BEST part of our entire trip. We took a family vacation to Atlantis and sailed a day charter on August 7, 2019 and it could not have been better. The crew was AMAZING, food delicious, snorkeling wonderful and their attention to every age was superb. We were a group of 8 from age 69 to 4 and they could not have been kinder to older adults as well as the lil peeps.
We would definitely do this again and are considering a 3 day with them in the future.
I cannot say enough positive about Capt Craig and his crew. Thanks for the GREAT memories.
