This was my first sailing charter so I didn´t quire know what to expect. I have to say Captain Steve and his wife/chef Nancy exceeded my expectations in every way. The vessel is beautifully maintained and the food was amazing. I highly recommend this trip for 2-3 couples who want a laid back and thoroughly relaxing vacation in beautiful Abaco.

Top experience

Thank you Nancy and Steve for hosting my friends and I on the Southern Passage. Spending the entire day on your catamaran in the Abaco’s was truly a top experience for myself. Nancy and Steve treated us like family the minute they picked us up in the dingy and welcomed us onto their floating condo. I would highly recommend using their services for a future vacation. Everything they offered us was first class. Their friendly smiles and warm conversation with everyone on board as well as their professionalism sailing the Southern Passage was well done!!!
Blessings to many enjoyable voyages!!!

May 2018

Our trip on the Southern Passage with Captain Steve and Nancy Morris was truly one of the most wonderful vacations we have had as a family. The boat itself is so beautiful and the perfect vessel for sailing the gorgeous waters of the Abaco Islands. Steve and Nancy are the perfect host and hostess, and I genuinely look forward to our next trip with them!!!

Southern Passage Guest Comments

To whom it may concern,
All we can say is WOW! What a great trip. From beginning to the end, we had a incredible time. We were met on the dock by Steve and Nancy, a lovely couple. After they helped us with our baggage, we went to the local restaurant for a quick lunch and planning meeting. Steve basically told us we could go where we wanted. Since this was our first trip to the area, we left that up to the seasoned captain. Speaking of which, if you enjoy fishing, this is the boat you’ll want to be on. Steve is an avid fisherman whether it be spear or rod and reel. He took us snorkeling and kayaking which was a blast. The water was simply amazing.
The boat itself was beautiful and performed like a smaller racing boat. We sailed a ton. I’ve chartered several times in the past and hardly sailed at all. Steve had the sails all trimed perfectly and we were flying! What a blast.
After each adventure, we’d come back to the stunning boat only to have Mate Nancy waiting for us with a delicious meal. Man! This lady can cook! Every single meal was spectacular. I’m incredibly picky, but I ate every bite of every meal she made. Kudos to Nancy!!
Lastly the accomodations were perfect. The beds were comfortable, and the staterooms were spacious, each with its own private head. The salon was huge and the tunes were jamming.
We can’t thank Steve and Nancy enough for making our first trip the the Abacos wonderful!!
5 STARS!!!!
