A week aboard Jalapeno is a trip of a lifetime – and my family and I have been fortunate to have sailed on her twice!
It is difficult to put into words what a wonderful experience sailing the islands is. To be on the water, smelling the salt air, feeling the sun on your face, and enjoying a breeze is a feeling that can’t be topped. We were able to visit beaches that wouldn’t be accessible without a boat. We were able to enjoy the best meals prepared by welcoming locals that we would have never know about since they are off the beaten path. We were able to learn sailing basics and, if we wanted, help with some of the sailing duties.
Both trips Ray and Jennifer were the ultimate hosts. They planned the itinerary around our interests – from snorkeling, to exploring the islands, to relaxing on the beach. Delicious onboard meals were prepared according to our likes and dislikes, all the while being able to try new delicacies only the islands were able to offer. Our comfort and enjoyment were their number one priority!
Even though we just returned from our sailing vacation, my family and I are already planning, and very much looking forward to, our next trip onboard Jalapeno with Ray and Jennifer!
We had a wonderful time on our one week cruise on Sea Witch in the Virgin Islands. Captain John and First Mate Susan are a pleasure to travel with. John knows the waters there like the back of his hand and Susan is a world class chef, whipping up terrific meals in a galley that seems far too small for most people to make a peanut butter sandwich. They are both dedicated to providing guests with a wonderful experience, and obviously enjoy interacting with their clients. Our cruise was more like a trip with close friends. The boat itself is spacious, comfortable and very well maintained. We would go back tomorrow.
