*** COMMENTS #1 ***

Sheila and Bob - I would have to say it was the best trip yet!!! We had such a great time and Rob took us on totally different dives this time we loved them. Rob and Michelle are so nice and really make your trip enjoyable. Not sure if I am just getting used to diving but I really enjoyed it this time, seems like the more I dive the more I like it. Anyway we had such a great time and we were all sad that it was over. Needless to say we are planning on going again next year. We have to get in as much time as we can before Rob and Michelle get a different boat, but I am sure we will follow them anywhere.. Hope all is well with you and Bob and you had a good weekend. Thank you for checking in and all your help, you always make the planning of this trip easy!!!
Look forward to doing many more with you. Thank you again.

We had a wonderful time and I am sorry I have not written sooner. As soon as you get back from a vacation, you begin trying to catch up from everything that happened while you were going.

We met the other couple that was with us on Island Skipper for dinner one week after we returned. Everyone was still excited and pleased with the trip. There was no stress, no hassles and no problems. Michelle and Rob were wonderful and gave us a great tour of the Islands. We all enjoyed it and felt like it was a dream. All of us felt the trip was the most relaxing vacation ever. We felt like king and queens with all of the service provided by Michelle and Rob. You could not have picked a better boat or couple for us. We felt like they were friends when we left. Hopefully, Michelle and Rob survived us.

Thanks again for all of your help. We hope to do it again someday.

We had a great time! As you know, we have chartered with Rob & Michelle in the past. We raved about the boat, the food and the experience to our friends. We convinced them to join us this time. They have not stopped thanking us since we returned! They also had a wonderful time! We can't say enough about Michelle and her abilities with food! Thanks for a great time!

If this week doesn't work for you, Island Skipper still has a few other weeks available this season.

2 guests: $6,500
