I can't say enough about how amazing our day aboard the Spellbound was! Captain Ian and his first mate (I waited too long to write this review and for the life of me can't remember his name) were more than accommodating and made sure my wife and I had an amazing time. We are already planning a return to the... More

The cast and crew of this awesome company picked us up in tortolla and from that moment there were adventures. The captain, Ian , definitely know the best places to go for snorkeling and all around fun times and beautiful sights. Katherinne and sandy sure do know their way around a galley kitchen. Food was amazing. Never a dull moment.... More

We meet up with the 6 other people at the SMYC and started our wonderful day with Ian and his crew. Swimming at Cap Juluca and... More

I decided to book a day excursion while staying in St. Maarten, and given the proximity to a few islands, I was torn between St. Bart's and Anguilla. Deciding that I wasn't here to shop for Louis Vuitton, it steered me in the direction of Anguilla. We sailed first to Pointy Pears Point, a "suburb" island of Anguilla, for some... More

We met Captain Ian on the flight into SXM. Another group was organizing a private charter with him and invited us to join. Ian hadn't initially planned to sail the week we were in Simpson Bay but he put a trip together for Wednesday. Him and his first mate welcomed us as if we were long time friends. The day... More

Let me make it very clear....Captain Ian, Chef and First Mate Katherine and Admiral Canine Ginger did NOT make me late! Instead they gave me and... More

We booked a private charter for 6 and could not have been more pleased with the experience! Captain Peter, Sven, and Catherine took excellent care of our group. The snorkeling didn't work out because of the water clarity due to the offshore storms but we had a blast anyway! Would definitely take another trip with these guys!
