As an accomplished water-skier, and surfer he will soon have you up and riding on your water sports of choice. He is very competent in maintaining and running all aspects of his yacht. His warm and giving personality, love of life, sense of humor and honesty make him a great captain to sail with. His "generous" barman's skills and great tales will have guests laughing into the night.

She will happily play surrogate "granny" to the kids while you enjoy a scuba dive or a visit to one of the fabulous beach bars or restaurants on the islands. From the moment you board Nova, she will make you immediately feel relaxed and at home, while making sure your every need is attended to. A great cook - who will delight you with her cuisine, which reflects their travels throughout the world, varied and beautifully presented.

      We had a brilliant time, it really was a very special holiday. We all loved it, including the boys, and at 16 and 13, that is not always an easily done! They really put Mike’s tender through its paces with endless wakeboarding etc.  Mike and Lesley were absolutely great, very relaxed and perfect hosts. Lesley’s food was wonderful and Mike was just great and so patient with our endless activities. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

      Best Wishes,

You made our week in paradise very memorable.

      First, I can't thank you enough for recommending Mike and Lesley Blamey and the Nova yacht charter. They were very fun and the perfect hosts--Mike gave the helm to my husband so he got his sailing fix, the meals were nothing less than superb, provisioning and accommodations outstanding, and the itinerary perfect with lots of flexibility for guest input. By the way, Mike has an amazing music library too. We were so pampered! This was indeed the vacation of a lifetime! 

      Having said that, we'd all like to charter with them again for a second "vacation of a lifetime!" and will be in contact with you about that.

      This charter experience far exceeded my expectations. You clearly recommended to us the very best charter boat captain and mate. They are fantastic to say the least. Their attention to all of our desires, needs and wishes was superb. The food and drink selection was exceptional! Leslie could easily be a master chef at a top of the line restaurant. We still don’t understand how she could manage everything else in addition to exquisite cuisine. Mike instilled in all of us a quiet sense of confidence, solicited our input on daily decisions and provided us with outstanding recommendations when we were undecided. He did so with humor and consideration for all of our needs. He also handled the many boat chores with great aplomb and competence. As a competent sailor in my own right with decades of experience with much offshore sailing experience on our own 45 ft yacht I was very impressed at Mike’s sailing and yacht management experience. Nova is a delight with Mike and Leslie! We are contemplating a future charter with Nova next year.

      Peg and I echo Ingo’s comments – Mike and Leslie made this wonderful vacation even more special. The food, sailing, entertainment and general ambiance significantly exceeded our expectations! Mike even let Ingo take the helm for much of our true sailing! The rest of us were more than content to just relax.Thanks again for your wonderful recommendation!

      Ditto from Fred and me. Honestly, we hadn't done this before so weren't sure what to expect exactly. However, for the price we expected a pretty amazing experience and Mike and Lesley really delivered. We were NOT disappointed! Mike and Lesley were so warm and welcoming and we connected with them quickly.We can't say enough about the food, as you can see, and we were totally confident in Mike's skills as a Captain. We had a bit of wind and chop on one or two days and we were never anything but totally comfortable.Our vacation was totally relaxing, altogether amazing, and we can't wait to plan our next trip on Nova!
