“Phenomenal Adventure”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My wife and I along with her Brother and his wife were aboard for 8 days. We were picked up on time in Bequia and let off at the Union Island Airport with more than enough time to make our outbound flight to Barbados connecting home to the US.
It was clear from the start that this was Shawn and Ally's home and they kept it up as only owner operators can. The maintenance and ingenuity were impressive; who knew you could make large quantities of fresh water from sea water using only solar power. Under sail Shawn and Ally were an impressive team to watch. Imagination was a very stable platform that would really fly when the winds were right which seemed to be most of the time.
Shawn seemed to know all of the best anchorages and how to make the most of each location. We experienced a mix of private coves and populated bays. We had several dinner and cocktail hours ashore and again Shawn knew the best places to go, favoring local fare. Wherever we went they were obviously a popular couple; this started the week before our sail with Cathy owner of Dive Bequia and continued on throughout our time on Imagination. There were also several short day hikes included in the itinerary Ally had prepared for us; each was manageable, interesting and again favoring local culture and scenery.
We chose the full board option and each day started with a multi course breakfast, followed with a similarly prepared lunch and ended with yet another outstanding dinner. We never wanted for soft drinks, beer, wine, or cocktails. Ally is an accomplished and creative chef; what she was able to prepare for us in Imagination's galley defies description. We won't comment on weight gain during the 20 plus meals we had aboard but Ally's cuisine was worth every pound.
Our in-laws enjoyed their two dives with Shawn as guide and the photos he took for them are now an adventure show on their home web site. Shawn took care at every turn to make sure our certified but infrequent divers were thoroughly prepared to enter the water, knew the dive plan and progressed through it at a safe and comfortable pace.
Our itinerary called for a long sail the first day and then several short sails as we island hopped through the Grenadines. If you book, it would be a good idea to let Shawn and Ally know your intentions; ie long sails, mix. short sails, diving, snorkeling, nights ashore etc. I'm confident you'll not be disappointed, we are ready to go back!

“Adventure of a lifetime!”
Reviewed 14 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My family and I stayed with Shawn and Ally on the Imagination for 8 days over Christmas Break, and it was by far one of the best family vacations we have ever had. The catamaran was in excellent condition and Shawn and Ally took great care to keep it that way. We had the chance to sail to 10 different islands, and they were the most picturesque locations I have ever been to! The entire trip was filled with turquoise water and white sand beaches.

Shawn and Ally made each day feel like a new adventure for us, and we spent our trip doing so many exciting things such as snorkelling (with sting rays and sea turtles, in the wild!!!), diving (Shawn is a certified dive instructor), swimming in gorgeous bays, racing hermit crabs, sailing, and eating some delicious meals both on land and on the boat (Ally is a phenomenal chef).

They also took into account when planning our trip all of our personal preferences and were incredibly accommodating. Ally was incredible at creating a variety of dishes for those who are health-conscious (and vegetarian dishes as well), as well as some less-healthy dishes for those looking to indulge on vacation,

Shawn and Ally have the most wonderful personalities, enthusiastic and incredibly passionate for what they do, and they made us feel at home on the Imagination. We had the most incredible experience and created so many memories that we will cherish forever, I recommend the Imagination to anyone looking for the adventure of a lifetime in St Vincent and the Grenadines, you will not find a better crew than this!

“Unforgettable New Year”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

We spent 8 days with Shawn and Ally on Imagination over New Year. What an amazing experience for our family! We had a "digital free" week in a series of stunning locations, starting in Bequia and ending in Union Island.

It is hard to overstate Shawn and Ally's role in making the time so special. Shawn made every day feel like an adventure (hoisting the sails at every opportunity, helping us catch fish, taking my son and I diving, even doing some tubing) while Ally treated us to a series of delicious and nutricious meals (we have two competitive athletes in the family so had asked Ally to plan the meals accordingly). They were a delight to be with, and went out of their way to be helpful and ensure that everyone had the best time. From the first day of the trip, they felt very much like part of the family.
Imagination has been lovingly restored by Shawn and Ally to be as "green" as possible (solar and wind generation used as much as possible). It added to our holiday that the kids learned to appreciate the importance of not wasting energy and water. We feel like we had a much more authentic experience than we did in the BVIs (when the AC was on permanently).

“Highlight of our Honeymoon!”
Reviewed 20 August 2015 for a stay in May 2013

My Husband and I stayed onboard the Imagination with Shawn & Ally in May 2013 during our honeymoon on Bequia. Our trip with Bluescape was such a highlight of our holiday, Shawn and Ally thought of everything and made sure we were able to completely relax and feel at home. The food was fantastic the drinks were always chilled including a bottle of fizz they surprised us with for our beach BBQ dinner that they had arranged. I will never forget our sundowner frozen cocktails in the double hammock perfectly romantic and peaceful. Barefoot luxury with home comforts.
Shawn took us snorkelling and we felt in safe hands the whole time.
I arranged the whole thing through Facebook and have been following their adventures online ever since!
I would highly recommend taking a trip however short on the imagination and we hope that one day we can stay on board again.

“Fabulous sailing vacation”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Six of us spent 10 days aboard the Imagination with Shawn and Ally and not a single thing could have been improved upon. We had sailed the Grenadines many times before but never with the care and attention that we received from our accomplished captain and fabulous chef. Many of us had special dietary needs and Ally handled them like a pro with absolutely wonderful, delicious, inventive, healthy meals. She even baked me gluten free bread!! Shawn and Ally's manner on board was always relaxed, extremely competent and the way they communicate and help each other was a pleasure. It all went towards the comfortable, fun, perfect trip and I'm not exaggerating. It was truly perfect. I would only return to the Grenadines to sail with them again. Friendly, comfortable, safe, easy going, lots of laughter, relaxing, great food, inventive cocktails, swimming, snorkeling and generally having a fun time. A pleasure!!
