Sol Seeker Description

With an abundance of outdoor space, the spacious three double cabins and 3 ensuite bathrooms plus the large saloon and galley, Sol Seeker is both luxurious and practical - plenty of room for groups and families. It´s a family friendly boat. No age restrictions. We have a V berth attached to a forward berth that they can set up if you want to keep your little ones close. Sol Seeker had stunning new salon tables that were custom made by an artist and installed in November 2021. They are a unique feature that brings life and art to the space. Sol Seeker features a walkthrough salon for the comfort and safety of guests. There is also a front seating area outside that is ideal for guests with mobility issues or younger children. They feel like they can still be out front in a safe way and included in the fun that happens on the trampoline instead of separated from the group. Actually most guests say this is one of their favorite spots on the boat.

MEET THE CREW ON SOL SEEKER


Scott, is a lover of adventure, land, air, and sea. He spent his life on land as an educator, teaching biology and earth science with a love of nature and exploration. He loves learning and teaching and has filled his mind with a plethora of trivia, nautical and otherwise. His aquatic experience started with SCUBA diving at the ripe, young age of 16. He learned to sail across the seasons on Lake Michigan, braving the chill of spring and fall while taking care of charter guests in the narrow summer months. He brings creativity and excitement to your adventure with a desire to always find something new and unique on every trip. Captain Scott is a certified mixologist creating amazing cocktails.


Nikki, was raised on the waters of the Mississippi River and has loved water her entire life. She grew up camping and boating, finding adventure and excitement in the water. A love of photography grew as she found more and more memorable pieces of nature to capture on film. Her love of food extends not only to the pleasure of the palate but also a respect for allergies and preferences across diets. She has spent the majority of her life as a Sign Language Interpreter, working in every field including medicine and travel just to name a few. For the past decade she has been learning and honing her sailing skills on the mercurial Lake Michigan, and taken those skills to the Mediterranean, Atlantic, and Caribbean to see the world from the water. In recent years she has taken new sailors under her wing to share her knowledge. She loves sharing both the thrill of the reefed sail and heavy heel as well as the peace and quiet of a hoisted sail and silenced motor.

Nikki is a nationally certified American Sign Language Interpreter, fluent in ASL. Nikki is the perfect match for charters that have a Deaf person on board. The Deaf client(s) gain access to communication for safety and accessibility. If they would like to take land tours, Nikki would be able to interpret for these tours. Nikki also enjoys teaching signs to children and adults alike. Guests love learning the sign for turtle, octopus, fish, sailboat, etc.

Chef Nikki specializes in allergy and specialty diets. She is extremely knowledgeable particularly in Gluten Free diets due to cooking for someone with Celiac’s Disease for decades. She also has a close family member that is vegan and members of her family with nut allergies. She has years of experience cooking keto, paleo and Whole 30. Chef Nikki is competent and happy to accommodate guest allergies and preferences.

Sol Seeker Guest Reviews

A Week of Pampering, Rainbows and Turtles

It´s been a week of pampering, rainbows and turtles. We anticipated the trip for months and it did not disappoint. We were able to marvel at the beauty of the islands because everything was taken care of. It seemed they were ready with what we needed before we knew we needed it.

Nikki´s gourmet meals were a feast for the eyes and the belly. But she was so much more than that. She was quick with a kind word when it was needed. She never tired of answering another question.

Scott did so many crucial jobs, quietly and skillfully. When we ventured out, we did not worry because captain Scott was always there in his dinghy. He was also a wealth of knowledge on endless topics.

Unexpected Treat and Adventure

Wow! What an unexpected treat and such an adventure.
Not knowing what to expect - it has been a lovely introduction to these marvelous islands - and the best part was meeting both Nikki and Scott and getting to witness a bit about their DREAM LIFE!
Nikki, you are an amazing and creative chef. We LOVED every morsel you served! We wish you every happiness as you continue your journey with Sol Seeker.

And Scott, thank you for your patience and perseverance with an elder (me!) this has been absolutely FABULOUS.


Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Simply Amazing

One doesn´t know where to start following such a stupendous trip as this, on Sol Seeker.
Your welcoming to us, your care throughout the week, your navigation and wisdom in guiding our course, your friendship, your excellent food, your attention to detail makes this trip simply amazing.

Broker Guest Review

We recently returned from a fabulous trip to the BVI aboard SOLSEEKERUSVI. Thank you for your assistance in the months that lead up to our trip. This was our first trip to the BVI and it certainly did not disappoint.

I know that there is a lot of competition with charter companies but I wanted to email to tell you that Captain Scott and Chef Nikki provided the absolute BEST vacation we ever could have asked for. It was simply the best. The cleanliness of the boat was noted first. The sleepaboard was recommended to us and that was a game changer. The food was just the highest quality and so delicious. We literally laughed all day and were all amazed at the destinations we were bought to. Scott and Nikki are indeed the reason that the trip was outstanding. I thought you should know when recommending other interested parties.

I look forward to working with you again. Thanks again !!

Took The Work Out Of My Vacation!

Thank you for sharing your home with us. You truly made your home our home for the past week. As a fastidious planner and organizer, I´ve never been happier, or more satisfied by handing over the reins to the two of you. From the itinerary to the meal planning and execution, we were in the best hands. Everyday was a new adventure and held something for everyone. It´s hard to please six people, but you did it with calmness, grace and competency. Thank you for taking the work out of my vacation

Our Gratitude!

Definitely the smoothest, most relaxing vacation we have experienced. Clearly it was well planned and executed. You have our gratitude for making it so memorable for us. We will see you soon!

It´s the ´Little Things´

Thank you both so much for the most incredible week ever! I cannot imagine anything being any better. Your hospitality the food, the fun with you was even better than we coild have expected. It´s hard to say just how amazing you both are. You truly made us all feel welcomed and comfy in your home. And I can´t even tell you how much i appreciated the fabulous meals and yummy adult beverages.... your painkillers are the best ever, hands down.

There were so many thoughtful little things you all did and even though they were the ´little things´, they were huge and noticed and sincerely appreciated. Our family will remember this week, this vacation, both of you for the rest of our lives, so, thank you for the moments, the memories, the vacation of a lifetime.

Amazing and Unforgettable

Thank you so much for this amazing and unforgettable trip. There wasn´t a single moment of this week that wasn´t genuinely magical and perfect....I imagine I´ll be trying to find endless excuses to come back here! this was truly the best vacation ever with the best people ever and I am so grateful for your kindness, generosity and expertise. I´ll be watching your IG longingly!

You Really Care

Thank you so much for making this trip so incredible. It is evident that you guys really care and pay attention to details to make the trip extra special. this has been the vacation of a lifetime and it has been largely thanks to you guys.

Broker/Guest Review

We just got off charter and I wanted to tell you that I don’t think it is possible to have had a better time than the one Captain Scott and Chef Nikki gave us. Nikki is an excellent chef and Scott has endless energy for activities, which I loved. I cannot recommend them any more enthusiastically. We saw whales, turtles, and sharks, largely because they knew where to take us. Scott was willing to do whatever we wanted. He made it happen. It was a fantastic vacation and one of my favorites of all time.

Amazing 40th Birthday Trip

My 40th birthday celebration on Sol Seeker was the favorite birthday of my life. Whales, bubbly pool, turtles, squid and that blacktip reef shark!
Nikki´s cooking is amazing. I rate each meal as ranging from excellent to phenomenal.

Captain Scott made the trip for me. Willing to do anything I wanted as far as hikes or watersports. You both care, you bust your asses and it did not go unnoticed.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the amazing 40th birthday trip. I will be incredibly disappointed if we do not spend another week on Sol Seeker.

Sailing was Unforgettable

We had an amazing trip, loved every minute of it. Captain Scott let me drive the boat and the sailing was unforgettable. Amy and I wish you both a terrific, adventurous rest of 2024 season.
Fair winds and following seas, friends!

Peaceful and Calm

Your home will forever be one of my favorite places on earth. Just thinking of Sol Seeker makes me smile to the point of making new wrinkles on my face :)
I´m sure my memories of the places we went will fade from this trip, but I will never forget the peacefulness and calmness I´ve felt throughout this trip, all of which is thanks to you both.

Every Day Was A Joy

Our group of four (consisting of two senior couples) have just completed a fabulous week aboard Sol Seeker, owned and operated by Scott as captain and Nikki, his wife, as chef.

When we began our search for a boat for our venture, we had a defined set of objectives. We wanted to enjoy the thrill of sailing in the Caribbean, to do this in a beautiful, sound, well appointed and well-maintained craft, to experience many well executed activities, to dine on excellent food and drink, to participate in lively and informative conversation and to leave with a feeling that we had interacted with and seen the best representation of what the Virgin Islands had to offer. Our selection of Sol Seeker for this venture was perfect. Scott, a former science teacher and now licensed captain skillfully operates a superbly maintained catamaran.

All of Nikki’s culinary creations were artful, nutritious and delicious. A rum tasting following dessert by Captain Scott displayed the broad spectrum of these products produced in the Caribbean.

We scheduled a couple of meals off the boat and found the Cooper Island Beach Club and Pirates Bight in Bights Bay to be excellent recommendations.

Their backgrounds, training and conversational skills made every day a joy, both in learning and in recreation using their extensive inventory of equipment. We didn’t want our week to end and wish to return – with them to support us on another venture.

Personal Touch

Thank you for your personal touch on all you did this pst week. We think you even had a hand in providing the exceptionally great weather.
the meals were fantastic. Thanks for all activities you provided for us.
this catamaran trip was by far the best one we have taken as compared to othered taken in past years.

As the end draws near we have gained 2 more family members with Scott and Nikki. We will remember you forever.
With love.

Felt Home Right Away!

Thank you so much for welcoming us into your home for the past week. We felt at home right away! Seeing the Virgin Islands with you was better than we would have imagined. Aaron had the time of his life! Thank you for making him feel special too.

We will miss you both so much! If you ever have the desire to come to visit Texas - you´ll have a home with us!

Everything We Hope For!

Just a quick note to thank you again for an absolutely perfect vacation. It was everything we hoped for, and more. The food was excellent, and your attentiveness and knowledge of the islands was superb - and much appreciated. I know I speak for us both when I say that we’ve fallen in love with the Virgin Islands and are looking forward to a return voyage!

No worries!

I can’t say enough about how great a trip my family and I had while we were on our charter with Nikki and Scott of SV SolSeeker.

They are a special team. They engineered an experience for our family that hit on all of the items that would make each member of our family feel like their time was memorable and fun while simultaneously creating a calm and relaxed environment.

Being a bit of a sailor myself, they made all of the hard parts about a charter invisible - we didn’t have a thing to worry about.

Best Trip!

It was the best yacht, crew and location combo EVER.
Making it one of the best trips possible.
The food and activities were incredible.

Most Amazing Crew!

You two are some of the most amazing crew I could have ever hoped for. Not only did you do a wonderful job planning and executing our vacation but you are such interesting, amazing people with such interesting stories to tell.

Nikki, I loved hearing about your family and your history as a sign interpreter.
Scott, you have the most amazing sense of humor and are the best game buddy.

If there is one thing I will miss most about the USVI, it will be you guys. Keep doing what you´re doing; you´re living your dream and every week a group of lucky people get the week of their lives.

Leaving As Friends

I´m still surprised at how quickly the time with you went. I was able to slow down to vacay-mode so quickly, island-time, the pace of sailing, yet the collection of intentionally lived moments seem to have motored by in a Chicago minute. We started as guests but I feel like I´m leaving with new friends.
Thank you for creating such special memories for my family and me! As a wanna-be-sailor to two real sailors living their best life: Fair Winds and Following seas.

Taking Home Memories!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for opening your home to us, taking such good care of us and putting together a week filled with amazing experiences, food and time for us to be together. We are taking home memories and stories that will last a lifetime. In the middle of a stressful move this trip was exactly what we needed.

Such a Fun Time

I had such a fun time on the yacht, it was a totally new experience for all of us. I think my favorite thing was the sunrise at Drunk beach and the bright blue water at Salt Pond. All the food was super good and it was really fun to be surprised at dinner and lunch. thank you for making a veggie option for me.

Thank you for a great week. I had such a fun time.

Amazing!

Thank you so much for a wonderful trip! This was an amazing experience, you made us feel so welcome. Boat Life was so fun to be a part of and really relaxing. The food was so good and I loved the surprise each day for what we could have. The bays and activities were spectacular. The blue color and snorkeling - just beautiful. Salt Pond was amazing. Thank you for taking such good care of us.

Adventure of A Lifetime!

Words can´t express how amazing this adventure has been. Thank you Nikki and Scott for helping us create an adventure of a lifetime for the family and I to remember.

I´m so excited for you both in starting Sol Seeker - your dream!
Congrats again and Thank You

Incredible!

Our time on Sol Seeker was nothing short of incredible. You both go above and beyond to make everyone comfortable and make your home feel like ours! Thank you for putting up with our outrageous shenanigans and even joining in on them. It truly makes us feel less crazy, which we didn´t know was possible. Truly hope we can meet again.

Best Vacation!

One of the best vacations ever! Scott and Nikki are the best hosts - personable, people friendly and knowledgeable.

Best Vacation Yet!

Hell Yeah Brother!
Our time on Sol Seeker was truly one of the best vacations yet! You made us feel like home even if we are a little crazy. It can´t be easy to just make six strangers feel like family, but y´all definitely did it. Every second we were here was magical and we owe that to you guys. The food, the boat, and the new friendships are incredible. Can´t wait to do this with y´all again, maybe sooner than y´all would like!

Thank you for the many kindnesses you shared with us!

On behalf of the whole group, thank you both for your hard work, diligence, patience and many kindnesses you shared with us on our charter. We really appreciate all the effort you put into our trip. We wont forget it or the very positive experience! Thanks again!

Sol Seeker is a beautiful yacht, and it was perfect home away from home for us!

Capt Scott + First Mate Nikki are THE BEST seafaring host and hostess that a couple of land-lubbers could hope for! Sol Seeker is a beautiful yacht, and it was perfect home away from home for us to see some of the highlights the BVI has to offer. Scott is an experienced driver and took us to see amazing sea creatures - octopus, stingrays and sea turtles to name a few - and he is also an accomplished mixologist! Try his Painkillers, it will cure what ails you. I just finished my last meal on Sol Seeker, and can’t say enough about Nikki’s cooking! EVERYTHING we had onboard was delightful, but the “special surprise” dinner was the best culinary experience I’ve had in decades! Thank both of you so much for sharing paradise with us!
xxoo

Stories, memories, and experiences that we’ll share for the rest of our lives!

Thank you for a wonderful trip in the USVI. This was first sailing trip and didn’t truly know what to expect. Your warmth and eagerness to connect with us and know us really shinned through. We felt at home immediately upon meeting you and know we were in for an adventurous and comfortable week. Your recommendation to go on specific hikes and explore specific rock shelves and coral outcrops were spot on. You filled out cups and now sadly we depart, but know that we are taking stories, memories, and experiences that we’ll share for the rest of our lives. In our minds, we are already planning our return with family and friends. There are things in life that are so good and fulfilling that leave you eager to share with others - this is one of those things!

Thank you again for all the attention to detail and long hours you put in to make this experience what it is! You even found the elusive soda “squirt” on a limited resource island!
We wish you nothing but the best! If you are ever in Lake Tahoe area - please reach out so that we can host you!

Laughs, great conversations and memories made!

First time in the USVI and with Nikki and Scott made it an amazing adventure! I loved their attention to detail, the relaxed atmosphere they provided and how they welcome you into their home. There are many laughs, great conversations and memories made to pick only one! We leave with plans to come back again one with great new friendships to stay connected with Scott and Nikki.

Thank you for such a great time sailing, snorkeling, hiking and getting to know the USVI.

Happy New Year!

What a fantastic way to close out 22’ and ring in 23’. Thank you, thank you for the great food, stories, great games, the ability to completely relax and enjoy being pampered. This is an experience that wasn’t soon to be forgotten wishing you the best in 2023.

Until next time!

P.S - everything was tasty good!!

This is the most amazing vacations!

This is the most amazing vacations! I have enjoyed my time aboard with you both. Thank you for always making sure we all had exactly what we needed at all times. Sorry for wasting all your snacks. We just can’t help being memorable I guess. Haha. I don’t think I will ever forget this vacation.

Thank you both!

Best. Vacation. Ever.

Thank you for such a wonderful vacay! What a way to end of 2022! Nikki, your talent for cooking helped me broaden my palette. I tried food I never thought I would like. Scott, you made sailing a breeze. (Minus the first day lol) All the board games and watersports were the most fun.

Cheers to 2023!
I hope to see you again soon.
P.S - Sorry for puking all over your boat! :)

As you see my family had a great time! I most appreciate total relation, recharge and sailing household chores being our of my mind! How can I go back? LOL Best. Vacation. Ever.

This was truly an unforgettable trip!

Thank you doe welcoming us into your home on an amazing charter! The food was incredible and Scott did great at keeping us busy with water activities! This was truly an unforgettable trip!

Thank you!

Thank you for giving us an amazing vacation.

Thank you for giving us an amazing vacation. This trip was so special to have all of us together during this busy time of our lives. The food, entertainment, and views were incredible and will not forgotten!

Thank you and Merry Christmas!

Good food, great times, good company!

Thank you a vacation of a lifetime! With supreme levels of adventure and relaxation we are able to forget daily stressors that are normally “barnacled” onto us. We hope you can understand the jot and memories you provided to our family as we set sail own this next chapter in the voyage of life! Thank you!

Good food, great times, good company!

Wonderful week spent on Sol Seeker!

I’m not eloquent enough to express how wonderful this week spent with you on Sol Seeker. Having my family all together though this normally stressful time, simply enjoying this beautiful Caribbean and being spoilt by Nikki’s expect skill of meals was invaluable. Every meal was equivalent to eating out at a 5-star resort, privately booked. Captain was easy going and relaxed throughout travels even though he had much to consider. His humor and game skills added to the day and evening delight.

Thank you so much for making this one of our best vacations!
Love you both!

Fantastic Trip

Fantastic trip! Your professionalism balanced with e and relaxed atmosphere made this the best vacation we’ve ever had. We’ll be back!
I love you, I love you, I love you!! :)

P.S - we are beyond thankful that you welcomed us to you amazing home with so much love. The food was exceptional and the adventures snorkeling and paddle boarding were awesome!

Thank you. Thank you!

Easily one of the top 5 trips I have ever been on – frankly it could be the best.

Our group was an odd assembly including a 10 year old boy with all of the 10 year old boy energy, a moody teenager girl, 1 middle aged woman who is extroverted and always keeping busy, a middle aged man who is extremely introverted and tends to fly solo (not sure he has ever been with this many people for this may days and definitely not in close quarters), and myself who works all of the time so vacations are extremely important to me.

What surprised me the most about the trip was how Nikki and Scott understood each of our personalities and helped us individually have the best trip possible. I still don’t know how they did it but when I see the pictures of our trip I don’t even recognize our faces with the size of smiles we are sporting. I am well-traveled and would considered this easily one of the top 5 trips I have ever been on – frankly it could be the best.

We loved the boat – it was very clean and comfortable, had thoughtful little details throughout, and we never felt cramped. The beds were great, the hang out spaces were comfy, and I felt like I was both in someone‘s home and also a hotel. It was a really nice balance. The locations they took us to were amazing. We have been to the USVIs several times and I think our new favorite spots were Sol Seeker’s recommendations. They helped us plan our day and we all were able to partake in several activities with their help. They never made us feel rushed or uncomfortable and they were more than accommodating.

Chef Nikki even went the extra mile to create a small token/memory for our recently deceased father – it was touching and incredibly thoughtful. Captain Scott was a true sport and not only pitched in with some 10 year old’s homework but also helped us learn new games while maintaining the patience of a saint.

The food – this one I can’t write enough about. Every item she plated for us was scarfed up by a pack of wolves – it was almost embarrassing. There were fabulous tablescapes and the plating was what you would expect out of a restaurant. It baffles me how she pulled it off in her tiny kitchen. It was the little details on the food that really blew us away she knocked it out of the park. She studied our food preferences we sent beforehand, and every meal was in tune with what we had requested. The moody teenager has a “thing” with food and she even remarked how she never had eaten so much or tried so many new things. It was amazing!

When planning this trip we neglected to understand the value of the team you hire to take you on the journey. The training and certifications are nice but what it comes down to is personalities. I would imagine all the boats are lovely, any beach or snorkel spots on the islands is great, and that most of the food is good (if it wasn’t I would assume that particular charter would be out of business!). What sets Sol Seeker apart, in my opinion, is the crew. It is extraordinary how they worked with our wide range of personality types. They were empathetic, hardworking, accommodating, highly skilled in their crafts, and generally just good humans that you want to be around. They created an experience for our family that will be cherished.

Long live the Sol Seeker!

First time being apart of a floatilla. Nikki and Scott helped make the trip amazing! Their knowledge of the islands is A+++! We were on a different boat but in the future I would definitely charter with Nikki and Scott!

Thanks much for the fun times and the knowledge!

Long live the Sol Seeker!
Say Soul.

Nothing better than the Sol Seeker experience!

Touring to Caribbean islands with Scott and Nikki was truly fantastic! I honestly cannot think of a thing to better our experience. They demonstrate a level of thoughtfulness that I am sure you wont find anywhere else. From taking us to special places to create memories to creating menus and games just for our family. I cannot say enough good things about Scott, Nikki and the Sol Seeker experience!

Full week of great food and fun!

I tend to only see the downside to things and boats are not my fav our things I I was coming into this trying to be positive but as soon as the first day passed I knew I did not have to try because there was nothing to complain about. this was the first time in months where I ate 3 meals a day and more, for a week straight. I discovered new foods that I enjoy, and found out i really like crabs and I got over my fear of swimming with fish.

I loved it and the good was so good and when Scott made us play showdo run it was really fun and all fish I loved

A poem for Sol Seeker.

Out of wet and darkened mood,
Brought together by the crew,
Coral rod and crown aligned,
By a shell in a mad design,
With a touch of earth once reached to sky,
All left along a blue coastline,
We’re out to sea and soon to find,
A rainbow sprung, to the heaven climb.

So tempest roll and dead things climb,
Break the stuff, a life of mine.
In memory haunt while love provides,
A proof that I’m alive.

Your empathy astands.

Wonderful family vacation!

Everything exceeded our expectations. I could not have anticipated how wonderful the trip would be. The islands, the family time, the food - it was amazing! What truly glued everything together was the crew, Nikki and Scott. Your presence was as important as the weather. 10 out of 10 would recommend and do it again.

Thank you for everything and making this a fabulous vacation.
Also I appreciate the “memories! It was perfect and thank you for sharing shade runner.

Thank you for giving us such a beautiful tour of the Virgin Islands!

We cannot thank you enough! What an unbelievable trip. We will always ember the incredible food, your hilarious stories, and all the fun facts you shared with us. Thank you for giving us such a beautiful tour of the Virgin Islands, especially when we had no idea what we wanted to do or where we should go! You two are clearly doing what you were born to do and we are so grateful you shared your boat and island life with us!

Top shelf service!

Best vacation ever! Chef Nikki and Captain Scott have found their calling. What a blessing to have the opportunity to be so spoiled surrounded by such glorious scenery! The food was top notch, the stories made each new experience more fun, chef Nikki swimming to shore to retrieve our cab fare, having a cup ready for my medicine every morning, emptying the trash daily, setting the table with creativity every meal! Top shelf service. Thank you for being so flexible, kind, fun and insightful. It feels like we have met 2 new friends. We love you both!

Perfect rest for our family!

What an amazing experience this has been and a perfect reset for our family!

We can not thank you enough for welcoming us into your home, treating us like family, providing us with beautiful meals and hospitality and sharing the joys and beauty of this amazing place!

We have had an incredible time and I am certain this will not be our last vacation with you guys aboard Sol Seeker!

What an absolute gift!

Once in a lifetime experience with you! It will be hard to leave here not knowing when we will see our new friends again. We´ll be going back to California with hearts full of gratitude and so many stories!
Thank you for all the healthful meals, on shore adventures, snorkel adventures and PATIENCE!
Most of all though, Thank you for making our friends 50th birthday so special!
This trip meant the world to her.

Absolutely Amazing Hosts

Nikki and Scott were absolutely amazing hosts. We are a family of 6 ranging in age from 2 to 70 years old and they would not have been more accommodating.

Nikki´s food preparations were absolutely incredible all while being mindful of food allergies - every day we had a fresh fruit platter, amazing breakfast, lunch, dinner, appetizers and deliciously beautiful dinner presentations with formal place settings and mood lighting.

We also had a birthday on board. Nikki and Scott went out of their way and decorated the entire boat and had a birthday cake with candles made and at the ready.

They made fun cocktails like frozen Lime ´n d Coconut and Pain Killers.

Captain Scott was our adventure guide and took us on some amazing hikes and snorkel trips. He was also my 4 year old daughters dance partner and every night we had music and fun dancing on the boat.

The entire family agrees this was truly a once in a lifetime vacation and hands done the coolest experience/vacation we´ve ever had.

You always made us feel like family

From the time we met at the dock, I knew instantly this wasn´t going to be just another vacation but the most spectacular vacation ever! We were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived until we departed. You always made us feel like family and were so welcoming.

Nikki served the most amazing food morning, noon and evening! Captain Scott always ready to provide water sports and even hikes!

Thank you for the surprise birthday party! That was extra special.
You are truly the hostess with the mostess!

Thank you for giving our family the adventure of a lifetime!

I´ve laughed, I´ve cried tears of joy and I´ve said ´Is this real life?´ more times than I can count.
Every moment of our stay has been filled with so much thought, hospitality and attention to detail.

I felt so included in every meal despite my allergy, which never happens!
From the concert on the water, to Lime Out tacos, to star gazing, we have had so many experiences that truly felt once in a lifetime!

Thank you, Captain for answering my every nerdy science question & being so great with my kids!

Thank you, Chef for your loving patience & sharing your gift of American Sign Language with us!

Thank you both for giving our family the adventure of a lifetime!

You Were Awesome!

Thank you for taking us on so last minute .... and in the middle of your wedding anniversary!

We loved everything about the charter - especially all the delicious food, the personalized hiking and snorkeling tours, and of course the sunset double anniversary dinner on the hill :)

We really appreciated your attention to detail - hitting everything on our preference sheet, & Beyond! Loved the fresh flowers and for playing games with us.

You guys were awesome and we hope to get back down here again - maybe for both our next milestone anniversaries

Sincerely Thank You

We would like to sincerely thank you for your hospitality, kindness, attention and care.

From the moment we met each of you we felt welcomed and excited about our journey ahead. The thoughtfulness behind each meal and snack showed. We truly enjoyed it all.

Thank you for being so flexible and accommodating this past week.

Dave and I were able to share special moments together with your assistance.

We definitely recommend this charter with you both and hope to return to enjoy another amazing journey with you both!

A special couple!

Jeff has been angling this kind of trip for years!
Thanks so much for making it happen and especially with the highest of quality, attention and care. Nora had the time of her little life.

Thank you for being the hostesses with the mostesses and making the best tomstesses (I´m a poet and I know it ;)))

Capt´n Scott, thank you for your playfulness, your James Bond style picnic delivery and Chef Nikki thanks for all the education on a host of subjects and giving mom R&R and peace of mind.

You two are a special pair and we trusted you in all things! Safety, fun, adventure... the works!

I will miss many things especially the meals and snacks and this lovely vessel, Sol Seeker.

Perfect For Us

It is extremely hard to express our gratitude. Thank you so much for welcoming us and guiding us to so many family memories! All the best that life has to offer you in 2022. Sol Seeker was perfect for us.

Wow!

Wow! From the bottom of our hearts, thank you! We knew going in to this trip would be one to remember.... However, you both exceeded our expectations in every way- unimaginable!

They Make You Feel Right At Home

Sol Seeker is a beautiful charter boat. Captain Scott and Chef Nikki are a great crew who make you feel right at home from the moment you arrive.

This vacation was the experience of a lifetime for me. My favorite part of every day was snorkeling. Each cove we visited had a different underwater surprise.

The table settings were beautiful which made the meals feel special and the food was delicious. This charter was worth every penny and more. I was planning my next vacation on Sol Seeker before I even left the islands.

Gratitude!

My absolute gratitude to Nikki and Scott for my recent charter. They did an amazing job.

Thank you Nikki and Scott for giving me one of the most incredible experiences of my life. There have been few times in my life where I have been able to ´disconnect´ and just experience the moment.

Nikki, your cooking was amazing! Every meal was an experience, even a plain English Muffin :)

Scott, you were so patient with me and scuba diving. I did not think I could do it but you stayed with me and helped me with my mask. You are also quite the bartender and Uno player.

The memories from this trip will be with me the rest of my life. Thank you for making it possible.

Awesome and Amazing Experience

I had the honor of sailing on the Sol Seeker, with Captain Scott and First Mate/Chef Nikki.

What an awesome and amazing experience!! The beauty of the Virgin Islands was impressive in its own right but was surpassed by my time on the Sol Seeker.

We were pleasantly greeted at the Harbor with exuberant enthusiasm at my arrival.
Luggage was taken to the yacht ahead and later myself and 2 other guests were escorted to the yacht.

What an amazing and beautiful vessel. This was my first experience on a smaller vessel but found my accommodations as well as rest of the yacht to be very roomy and comfortable and always kept clean and safe.

The professionalism of both Scott and Nikki and their extreme knowledge was very impressive and I was always at ease.

As Chef - Nikki out did herself in meals or snacks she had prepared. She asked if there were favorites but honestly all were truly delicious.

Prior to our arrival we were contacted as to what we enjoyed eating or didn´t favor and beverages we enjoyed. She truly listened and meals were prepared and beverages provided to meet our request. I will say if any favorites - desserts fall into that category.

A daily itinerary was planned and we got to experience some beautiful nature, ocean life and even got lucky and saw a deer.
Activities were available as snorkeling, kayaking of which I had never done before and instructions given prior to taking on either.
Also great games for evening time after dinner.

I have traveled to some extent in my life and have to say this is probably a highlight of my experiences.

Will I do it again - ABSOLUTELY!
Will I go on SOL SEEKER again - COUNT ON IT!
