Our honeymoon has been unforgettable not only for the nice places but also thanks to the boat, which was in very good conditions, cleaned up and fairly equipped; your assistance to confirm everything and to answer our frequent answers and doubts has been fundamental.

Belize Bareboat Vacation

Our trip was great. Everything about it was even better than we expected. The weather was perfect and our captain, Mark Jones, was an excellent fit for our group. My thanks to you for all your fine help in making our trip a well planned one and for your willingness to accommodate our special needs. We would love to do it again. Shalom,

Miami Beach Crewed Charter

Thank You for your interest in our trip. We were a little nervous because it was our first sailing experience for more than a day and it was a bareboat charter. I can tell you that it was a wonderfull experience all the way. Our tripulation consisted of my wife Amaya and me, our two sons who are 15 and 11 and our daughter who is 13. All of us are windsurfers and we like sailing, but after this trip we like it even more.

Our trip went from San Pedro to Goff's Caye, spending nights in Caye Caulker, St. George's Caye and Water Key. We rented a windsurf and a Kayak which we used whenever we anchored. We don't scuba dive, we only snorkel and it is a paradise for snorkeling. We even got to swim with sharks and rays. We are committed to learn to scuba dive for next trip.

The boat was much better than we expected. We had never been in a large catamaran, and it turned to be spacious and comfortable. The boat was well equiped and well maintained. Basically everything was working and those things which needed to be repaired were taken care of as soon as we returned to San Pedro.

We order supplies through Lagniappe Provisioning in San Pedro. Everything was as we ordered and ready on the boat when we arrived. We want this to be our first of many sailing trips and we would choose to charter with you again. We hope this feedback is helpfull and thank you for your interest in our opinion.

Belize Crewed Charter

We had a great time - everything was perfect for our honeymoon. The boat was beautiful and in great condition (it was especially nice that it had air conditioning since some of those nights where a bit toasty) The skipper was very fun and a amateaur photographer --- he took some great pictures of us on our honeymoon that are priceless. The remainder of our honeymoon, we went to several nice restaurants and everytime we said to ourselves where is Maria's cooking (she was our cook on the boat).

We certainly enjoyed every aspect, thank you for your help --- you helped make our honeymoon the best and very memorable. You are welcome to share my comments and I hope to contact you in the future to arrange another trip - hopefully with some of our friends.

St. Martin Luxury Charter

The trip was great. The base did an excellent job with their service and support, and provided great help during the race. The only constructive criticism I can offer is that the sails on the boat were a bit tired, but that's to be expected on a 4 year old charter boat. Thanks for all of your help.

Antigua Bareboat Charter

Our December bareboat charter was 5 star rated!!!! You and Tropical Yachts were prompt and professional throughout the entire trip from start to finish and follow up. Everything went off without a hitch. The 41 Lagoon, Carpe Feline, was clean, serviced and ready to sail when my crew and I arrived in San Pedro.

I would highly recommend Tropical Yachts and the Belize location to anyone who wants to bareboat or captain charter without any hassle. The staff in Belize was friendly and diligent, I did not have to wait for anything and in the same respect, did not feel pressured to get underway until all crew was ready. Likewise the checkout at the end of the week was quick, efficient and painless. Thanks for the hookup and we should be doing business in the future. Yours truly,

Belize Bareboat Charter

We just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our vacation. The boat was so nice and had everything we needed. Our kids loved it! It turned out to be perfect for our family. The only thing that we would add, as far as amenities, would be a DVD player (for the kids)! We wanted to thank you so much for all the help you gave us prior to us actually getting to Miami. We have wanted to do a "boat trip" for a while and we had so much fun, we will definitely do it again. The hurricane and electronic/electrical problems be damned! Thanks again for everything.

Angie Whitehead - Covington LA
Miami Bareboat Charter

I was told by the team that they really enjoyed the experience. They all loved the yachts and the training. I was told that they decided not to race, but rather have a good time. They said that this was the best team building experience ever. Thanks,

Becky - Cisco Systems
Miami Team Building Charter

Merci de votre attention. Et bien je suis très heureuse de vous dire que tout c'est agréablement bien déroulé. Tout le monde à trouvé votre prestation très bien et j'espère retravailler avec vous dans le futur. Merci pour votre profesionnalisme. Bien cordialement et à très bientôt.

Betty Carre - Cognis, Paris France
Miami Team Building Charter

Sorry for the late reply. Trip was awesome and the boat was beautiful. Would definitely use again! Thanks for everything :O)

Miami Day Charter

Thank you for following up. I have to say that your company in general and your Key West crew in particular are a pleasure to do business with. You made a deal and kept it, delivered a clean and functioning boat to us on time. The boat was well found and served its purpose.

Billy Gammon
Key West Bareboat Charter

We had a great time. The yacht was gorgeous, the service was excellent and the food was unbelievable! They went above and beyond to make our event successful and fun. Thanks for all your help as well. You were a pleasure to work with, very responsive and helpful with our group's needs.

Katie - Viacord Inc, Cambridge MA
Miami Corporate Event Charter

Many thanks! We could "not" have had a more "enjoyable" time. The boat was great and (the entire trip) went as smooth as could be. The Dressler's were charming and very helpful. The boat was a breeze to operate, and extremely comfortable. What more can I say except keep in touch, we most certainly will be doing this again. Best regards,

Art Kross - Paramus, New Jersey
Miami Beach Charter

I had a great time; as my girlfriend did also. The sailing and the country beat my expectations. TMM is a top notch organization and I will charter through you guys again. Thanks for helping prepare the trip and answering questions. The sailing staff was knowledgable and helpful. The only regret that I have is not having enough time to continue and sail down there. I don't think I will ever be able to go back to a monohull boat as well, there's just too many positives to the Cat. Thanks for everything and I will be talking with you guys in the future. Actually I'm considering purchasing a boat and having you guys rent it if you could forward some information in regard to that it would be great. Cheers,

Camden Clay - Paris KY
Belize Charter

The day on the boat was absolutely wonderful. Thanks for your work. You did a great job. The whole group had a lot of fun with waterski, jetski and so on. We did not get bored at all. At the end, we were sorry that the time went by so fast and that we had to leave.
Thanks again for all your work.

Andrea Petzold - Atlanta GA
Miami Corporate Event Charter

I was just thinking on the way home from (ugh!) work tonight that I should write and thank you for all your help. We had a simply marvelous trip, in spite of a couple of relatively minor mechanical failures....

On our third night sleeping on the boat, and the only night we had planned to "anchor out", the generator overheated, in spite of our diligent attention to coolant levels. We discovered a leak, and also a loose belt, but were never able to keep it running for more than an hour or so at a time. Also, the macerator pump on the aft holding tank would not pump out, so we had to pay for a pump out when we returned. You asked, so I had to tell you. However....the rest of the trip was so incredibly perfect that those minor issues really didn't bother us. After all, we figured even if we owned the boat, things do happen no matter how good your maintenance is.

We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the boat - it was positively spotless inside and out, and very well stocked in the way of utensils, linens, and helpful cruising information. Picking up and dropping off the boat in Miami Beach couldn't have been easier, and everyone at the marina was very helpful, both at the charter company and in the Dockmaster's office. We were especially impressed with Eduardo, who obviously takes great pride in his job.

I would not hesitate to recommend Florida Yacht Charters/Tropical Yachts. As you know, this was our first charter experience, and, the service and quick responses to our questions that Tropical Yachts and Florida Yachts provided was very much appreciated. Please feel free to use any of this note on your website. Sincerely,

Donna and Eugene Watkins - Crawfordville, Florida
Miami Bareboat Charter

Thank you for your follow-up. We had a truly sweet and memorable 4 days aboard the 43 Mainship "Magnolia". She was exceptionally well maintained, clean, comfortably appointed with all amenities and most roomy for just the two of us, my wife Jeanette and I. Plenty of space for four more adventurous souls! The professional attention, qualifying check-out pre-departure by the base captain, and dockside service both before departure and at disembarkation was superior. Would we charter again with Tropical Yachts without hesitation! And feel free to publish our comments on your website.

Jim & Jeanette Thompson - Ft Lauderdale, FL
Miami Charter

Our trip was a resounding success. This charter, for Steve and I, was the "next step up" from the BVI and we passed with flying colors. The navigation and overnight moorings (anchoring) were slightly more difficult than those found in the BVI but we muddled through with grace. Our GPS proved to be mostly accurate (it did not depict the island of Tobacco Caye, however. Instead, it showed this small land mass to be a through way in the reef ).The locals were all friendly and helpful. Our predeparture briefing- though rushed because of a delay in our boats arrival- was one of the most thorough we have ever received. Mike (I am unsure of the German spelling of his name) gave us a plenitude of information on all of our choice destinations and how to best navigate to them and where best to anchor once we had arrived. I particularly liked the way that TMM sent a chase boat with us both on departure and arrival. They went out of their way to keep things simple and safe. The prepaid calling card was another nice touch. We also appreciated you setting us up at The SeaBreeze Hotel...this was a delightful little hotel and the convenience of its location could not be beat. We were able to quickly and efficiently provision our boat upon arrival. Even the cab drivers were polite and helpful. I would definitely book with you in the future. Sincerely,

Laura Gangeme - Corpus Christi Texas
Belize Charter

Our trip was wonderful! I was worried that the boat wouldn't live up to the expectations of those in my group who didn't make the arrangements. Those worries were gone with our first hours on the boat. Everyone was happy. There was ample space for all 8 of us and the boat was well stocked with linens and dishes.

Grenada is beautiful and the people are very proud of their country. There was a lot of pro-American sentiment expressed. The boat sailed very well and we were all comfortable even on the longer legs of our journey. We only had one bit of trouble with a guy named "Dolphin", in Clifton Harbour on Union Island. He hustled a member of our crew pretty handily. Overall, if that was the worst thing that happened to us, I count the trip as a success!

The picture is of 6 of our 8 overlooking the anchorage on Bequia. The pictures just don't to justice. We saw some breathtaking sights everywhere we went. The snorkelling was the best ever in Tobago Cays. We ate some interesting things. There is an ample supply of fresh conch, called Lambi there, which is the most tender we've ever had anywhere. Not the usual rubber.

Thank you for all of your help and for putting up with all of our questions. Your help made planning our vacation easy. Now, on to planning for next year!

Tammy Honeycutt - Rockwall Texas
Grenada Charter

We had a very good trip. The boat was very nice, even more room onboard than expected. No problems at all with the boat. This was my first trip on a catamaran and I would have to say they are very stable and roomy for a charter. My wife is not really much of a sailor and has a tendency for sea sickness in even medium conditions and on some of our longer sails she was down below reading with no problems. Grenada and the Grenadines are a really nice place to charter, the people are very friendly, it is nice to travel some place these days where they still like Americans. There are long enough distances between islands to allow for plenty of sailing (or motor sailing). As always with a sailing vacation I would have liked to have stayed longer and seen more. The Horizon people did a good job getting us going, it did seem to take a long time, but there were a lot of us and the rain slowed things a bit. They checked us in very quickly. The dingy had seen a lot of miles but started every time and held air. Thanks for your help in setting all of this up and answering questions. It went very smoothly. By the way, our US cell phones worked everywhere and Horizon setup our crew mate with a small inverter for his medical device.
Thanks again for your assistance. By the way, what are some of the other destinations that you set up charters?

Robert Briscoe - Rockwall Texas
Grenada Charter

The cruise was excellent. I was an enjoyable time and wonderful scenes to view. My boyfriend and I had an excellent evening and enjoyed every minute of it. The captain was excellent and friendly. Thank you and hope we can cruise again with you in the near future.

Alexandra - Chicago Illinois
Miami Beach Dinner Cruise

Our trip was awesome!!!!! Our captain, Chris, was the best. He went out of his way to show us a wonderful time! He knew his way around so all we had to do was sit back and relax! "The Dreamer" was an excellent choice for us. It was a beautiful boat equipped with everything you could possibly need (kitchen, bathroom, beds, etc). The best thing was how spacious the boat was....plenty of room for dancing! The captain played our own music and made our trip definitely one to remember. I would highly recommend "The Dreamer" with captain Chris to friends, family and to anyone who asks! Thank you so much for everything and I will definitely be back on that boat whenever I'm back in Miami :)

Caroline - Orlando, Florida
Miami Beach Day Charter

Perdon por no escribir, pero ahora que tengo tiempo te puedo contar que fueron unas vacaciones maravilosas. Todos estuvimos felices, buceamos muchisimo, bajamos al Blue Hole 2 veces. El crew de lujo, Clive el capitan es un tipazo, muy trabajador, resolvio todos los pequenos problemas y ademas una persona muy carinosa y simpatica. El cook lo hizo muy bien aunque se veia que no tenia experiencia en estos viajes, pero comimos riquisimo, un dia nos horneo pan! Espero poder repetir el viaje, mil gracias por tu ayuda.

Carmen Cano - Mexico DF
Belize Crewed Catamaran Vacation

Everything was fantastic. The base personnel were extremely helpful (especially Craig) and the boat was immaculate. The only thing I would change would be my trip planning. Next time, I would probably want to do a trip that didn't require two day's sail to get to "civilization." By the time we got to Marina del Mar in Key Largo we were both very tired! But, since this was my first charter, I didn't know any better. Still, it was a lot of fun and all of our friends were jealous. Next time we were thinking of trying the Bahamas. We'll definately be in touch! Thanks again,

Jeff Clark - Georgia USA
Miami Beach & Florida Keys Bareboat Vacation

Thanks for your interest in our trip. We really had a fantastic time and had no problems at all with the yacht. Everyone told us we had come at the wrong time of year, but we really enjoyed having the most beautiful beaches and wonderful snorkelling all to ourselves. We found Bob very professional and the office staff were very helpful too. We'll have a lasting memory of the shark we came face to face with, when snorkelling off Fowl cay. Thanks again,

Martin, Allan and Eleanor Gledhill - Scotland, UK
Bahamas Bareboat Vacation

I think I can speak for the whole was an amazing time!! The boat was beautiful and Ken was very helpful in selecting the best boat for our trip. The entire staff at Tropical Yachts was friendly and responsive to our many questions. This was a vacation we will remember forever! We will definitely be customers of Tropical Yachts again-as soon as our schedules permit! Thanks for all your help.

Lindy, Derek, Meaghan, John - Atlanta, USA
Miami Beach Bareboat Vacation

The aquacat was incredible, only 9 divers instead of usual 22 - what a treat!
Highly recommend the operation and very nice crew.
Talk soon!!

Steve - Pennsylvania, USA
Bahamas Scuba Diving Charter

We had an amazing time! Great weather, empty beaches and decent winds! Steve and everyone else at the base was great and helped make it all go quite smoothly. Thanks for your help in putting all together. We can’t wait to go back!

John Billingsley - California, USA
British Virgin Islands, Bareboat Vacation

Everything was great. Specially the crew, they were really friendly and helpful with us. Both Ricardo and Odra contributed big time with our special moment (asking the big question), please congratulate them for us. Your attention to my emails requesting information was also very good, thanks. Believe me we will always remember our sunset charter with you guys. Hopefully we will repeat it with our kids in the future.
