Charter Yacht STORM PETREL - client comments reviews testimonials

We just received an email from a repeat client (Phil) and realized that we did not post his comments about his previous charter with Storm Petrel. Sorry... Better late than never :)

Thanks again, Captains Phil & Laura for sharing Storm Petrel for a week and giving our clients an excellent charter. We knew you'd be perfect for them!

Charter Yacht Storm Petrel

Charter dates = APRIL 21-28, 2008

Sheila and Bob,

Captains Phil & Laura
Our vacation was everything that we had hoped for and more. Storm Petrel was exactly what we were looking for. Captain Phil and Laura made us feel right at home onboard. The boat was clean and comfortable. We were able to use as much water as we wanted throughout the week thanks to the huge tankage on Storm Petrel. Stern showers were frequent with heated water. Captain Phil and Laura offered us many options for daily activities and destinations. The food onboard was plentiful and excellent. Laura cooked to our tastes wonderfully.

We requested sailing and boat handling instruction during our vacation, and Captain Phil proved to be an excellent instructor. He was positive and encouraging. He never yelled at us. We were doing all the boat handling by the end of the second day. Captain Phil also taught us how to windsurf. Our hosts took us to a variety of great snorkeling spots every day. It pays to be on a boat with people who know the islands like the back of their hands. We went places that bareboats aren’t allowed to go. We were truly sad to say goodbye to our hosts on Storm Petrel.

Paradise Connections was very professional throughout the process of booking our vacation. All of our questions were answered in a timely manner, and everything was handled professionally. I do thank you for your services. Paradise Connections is an upstanding company that instilled us with the confidence to pull the trigger on our dream vacation. The resulting vacation was fantastic.
