“Bravura is a must!”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

We've done many day sails in the BVI but I would put this experience on the top of the list. The ship is awesome, comfortable and it was a pleasure to relax and sail to Cooper's Island where the snorkeling was awesome. Food was great as was Captain Bob. We will be back.

“Capt. Bob makes the day great”
Reviewed 6 February 2012

We sailed with Bob on January 20th. Bob was very accomodating and stressed that "the ship is ours". Although we didn't have good winds for the trip to Cooper Island, Bob kept our attention by telling us about the history and politics of the region. When Bob said that the trip included open bar, he certainly meant it. He had everyone's favorites on board and was skillful in hissea-going bartending techniques.

After some snorkeling we returned to the ship and were greeted by an incredible gourmet lunch that was as good as any restaurant we had been to that week. On the return to Virgin GIrda everyone had some time at the wheel while Bob cleaned up and made sure we still had plenty of refreshments. Bob's knowledge of sailing and his stories from his previous career made you want to spend more time with him.

His boat is very clean and we comfortably fit 8 people plus Bob. I would highly recommend taking the Bravura no matter the age or mix of the party. I would love to go back and do it again.

“Sailing in paradise”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

We had a wonderful time sailing with capt Bob yesterday. The weather was perfect and a a nice breeze allowed us to experience smooth sailing through the Sir Francis Drake Channel to Cooper Island where we snorkeled and saw many colorful fish. Capt Bob prepared a gourmet lunch for us while docked. He truly is a man of many talents. Would highly recommend the trip to anyone who enjoys sailing.

“Kudos to Captain Bob!”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

My parents booked a one-day sailing adventure on the Bravura, for 11 people, on a recent trip to Virgin Gorda. It was a great charter and Captain Bob provided an excellent day on the water. His beautiful sailboat is comfortable, clean, and well-maintained. While we took the dingey to the beach and to a place to snorkel, he remained on board to prepare an excellent meal of jerk chicken, sandwiches, chips, salsa, a gormet blue cheese cole slaw, and a green salad, which was waitng for us when we were finished at the beach. But above being an excellent host, Captain Bob's main concern was for the safety of our family. I reccomend his services to anyone wanting an awesome day on the water.

“Definitely worth it; a phenomenal experience!”
Reviewed 15 December 2011

We had a wonderful day with Captain Bob and his first-mate Kim. They made our party of 8 feel like the Bravura was our boat. Captain Bob took us to some of the most beautiful snorkeling spots I have ever seen. The gourmet lunch was awesome; in fact, it was as good as (or better than) many of the meals we had on the resort properties. When we return to Virgin Gorda, which we plan to visit again soon, we will definitely book a Bravura trip with Captain Bob. Five star treatment. . .
