      Without hesitation we recommend Charly and Carolina with their yacht, Cyrstal Clear, for a trip of a lifetime. My wife and I can tell you how the yacht consistently was the most elegant and well cared for vessel among the other boats anchored in the bays we spent our nights at, or we could speak to the uniqueness and splendid gourmet quality of our meals that never repeated themselves, or the meticulous mastery of scheduling the crew wielded to craft an unforgettable trip for us hitting all the must-do's in the Virgin Islands tailored to our interests. But what is the most important and sincere point we can communicate is our deep gratitude for Charly and Carolina who made us feel as family in their home they welcomed us into aboard Crystal Clear as we begin our own family--we saw pictures and heard stories of all the patrons who returned time and time again for follow-up trips, even couples who spent their honeymoons with the crew only to now invite Charly and Carolina to their own children's weddings! You don't just find an unparalleled voyage with Crystal Clear, you find life-long friends.

      Best,
      Dominique

      Please pardon our delay as married life with new jobs has occupied us since our return! We appreciate you facilitating this trip of a lifetime, that incidentally began our life together. Our consensus feedback is as follows.

      Comments by guests aboard the 54 ft ketch CRYSTAL CLEAR in November, 2014

      Sorry it took so long but we have been on the road since we returned from the charter. We had an incredible time in the islands. Charly and Carolina were fantastic and the Crystal Clear was awesome, several people complemented Debbie and I on the beauty of the boat. I was awed by Anagada and the Bath’s and will have to return someday for a longer stay. Our “Crew” welcomed us like family and never lost patience with our constant stream questions. The last word: The best food, drinks and friendly service anyone could imagine!

      JUNE 2013

      Our vacation was an amazing experience! All five of us had a fabulous time!!! We would wholeheartedly recommend Crystal Clear for anyone contemplating this type of vacation.


      Here's some feedback on a few items:

      yacht- The yacht was gorgeous and was stocked with everything we could have needed! Charly and Carolina are very particular about their yacht, and therefore it is is great shape with no problems! The sleeping arrangements were comfy (although our middle daughter Hannah did bang her head on to the upper berth several times before she learned not to!).

      crew- Charly and Carolina were gracious, accommodating, fun-loving, and dedicated hosts. They worked hard to make sure our vacation was what we wanted. They understood that our family liked to have adventures and stay active, so in addition to sailing, they made sure we went swimming, snorkeling, hiking or exploring every day. They took us to the most amazing beaches and bars and always had great recommendations for drinks and snacks. They were very personable and really took the time to get to know each one of us. They excelled at time management, and gave us just the right amount of time to do things and get places without feeling rushed (but we packed an incredible amount into our 7 days with them). They also made the trip a lot of fun - Charly with music, dancing, camp games while sailing, and an infectious attitude for fun; and Carolina as our tour guide on hikes and snorkel excursions. Both Charly and Carolina made the trip educational, answering all our questions about the islands, fish and animals, sailing, etc.

      food- the meals were fabulous!!! very delicious!! Charly is a fantastic chef. We always had more than enough to eat and drink. We enjoyed trying things we had never tried before (even the kids) - mussels marinara, Russian salad, melon with prosciutto, Argentinian barbecue, etc. Some American classics (burgers, hot dogs, brownies with ice cream) also hit the spot at just the right time.

      Island connections - an unexpected (but not surprising) benefit was the help that Charly provided for arranging for car rentals, ferries, taxis, and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed taking advantage of Charly's connections to utilize the pool, hot tub, slide and trampoline at Scrub Island Resort and hiking trails and beach at Biras Creek. We didn't know enough about the area to decide our own itinerary in advance, but Charly and Carolina quickly learned what we liked to see and do and their recommendations were always spot on. Each day seemed to be an adventure that topped the previous day. We were even treated to a fireworks show on Peter Island during our last night on the boat!

      Again, our week aboard the Crystal Clear with Charly and Carolina was everything we hoped for and then some. It was a trip of a lifetime. Thank you for your role in hooking us up with them!

      The Freyemberger’s HONEYMOON

       



      Charly & Tom:

      “We had a great vacation with you. The food was delicious and you always keep us entertained. It was great seeing the islands from our own floating fortress! I appreciate you dedication to my search to find the perfect lobster. Thanks for all the pic’s you took! You documented our trip much better then we could have! We all feel like family now!”

      Van Horn’s

      “Captain Charly & Tom:

      Thank you so much for a wonderful HONEYMOON ! We loved the boat, the snorkeling, the swimming and ,of course, Grant’s B-Day Party! We are very happy in this Yellow submarine! The adventure was amazing, your warmth generosity and desire to have fun ! (And amazing cooking skills…Thanks to your wife for the birthday Cake). We feel so lucky to have meet you. Cheers!”

      Thank you so much for the best, and presumably only, honeymoon cruise of our lives!
      The amenities, the food, your friendliness, the fantastic locations, the snorkeling trips and local tours, and the gift of seeing Charly dance like Michael Jackson with Jason were all muy muy muy bueno!
      We have had such a wonderful time sailing with you, and we wish you clear skies and perfect breezes o see you safely down to Venezuela and your fabulous life adventures beyond!
      Come see us in California on your big RV trip of the USA (or anytime!)
      Love,
      Jeanne and Jason

      To capture a moment in time is an extremely difficult task.  Cameras and camcorders can do no justice.  It takes special people to take those moments and make them real.  You are those special people.  I cannot think of any other people or way that could have made our honeymoon as special as it was.  We will never forget this week or the two of you for the rest of our lives.  We thank you from th bottom of our hearts for capturing this moment in time for us.  We are glad to call you friends.  Thank you for everything.

      We just returned Sunday from our cruise aboard Crystal Clear, and I wanted you to know that we really had a terrific time.  Charly and Carolina were extremely good with our young boys - they made the week almost magical for the boys.  From helping them with their snorkel gear and pointing out fish to us, answering all the boys' questions about the boat, and catering to their picky appetites, to playing with them on the beach, to teaching them knots, letting them steer and help out on board, engaging them in a point system rewarding them for good things, to having the BVI's version of the tooth fairy come (our 7 year old lost a tooth while on board), to not just letting the boys watch movies aboard, but WATCHING them WITH the boys, and then giving them a "Swabbie Diploma" and presents on their last day.  Charly and Carolina are so good at "reading" people, we felt they really made all of us comfortable.  They were very patient and kind.

      So, the next time a family with young children contacts you for a charter, Crystal Clear has to be the first boat that comes to your mind.  Nobody can beat Crystal Clear.

      Not to mention, they have the best looking boat in the BVI!

      We are already in the beginning stages of thinking about our next trip!
