Sol Guest Reviews

Christmas 2023

I recently chartered the boat Sol for an unforgettable adventure in the British Virgin Islands, and it was nothing short of spectacular. Captain Jack orchestrated the perfect tour, navigating us through the stunning islands with expertise and charm. The staff, including Richard, Blake, and Mallory, were exceptional, adding to the overall amazing experience.

The boat itself, named Sol, was a beautiful haven for our family. Its comfort and elegance exceeded our expectations, providing a cozy retreat after each day’s exploration. The food was a delightful highlight, further enhancing our journey.

We are already eagerly anticipating our next charter with Sol. The combination of breathtaking scenery, outstanding staff, and the sheer beauty and comfort of the boat make it an experience we can’t wait to relive. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a perfect escape in the British Virgin Islands.
