What Our Customers Are Saying


You have an incredible sailboat and we all had an amazing time!  Captain Jeff and Chef Caitlyn were wonderful and they were most excellent hosts.  Captain Jeff was a confident, skilled captain and Chef Caitlyn quite the accomplished chef!  The snorkeling was simply my favorite part and I also enjoy Sandy Cays, the beaches and standing from time to time on solid land :).  The food was fabulous, absolutely nothing could be improved upon in that arena!  I’ve already shared my experience with some friends and told them to look up Sail Happy Time.
We really could rave about everything from the very beginning as the taxi driver Americanus Jackson was a lovely individual and Caitlyn arranged for him to take us both from and to the airport- that was a special touch.  While we ate breakfast, Caitlyn was making our beds and cleaning our room/bathrooms.  The whole trip was relaxing, enjoyable and quite memorable!
Caitlyn was a very knowledgeable and helpful snorkel guide.   I, by the way, had the most amazing snorkeling adventure where a little fish hung out with me for at least 45 minutes and no matter where I swam, fast or slow, he swam right in front of my goggles.  When I stopped to clear the goggles, the fish would stay right by my body.  In fact, he didn’t leave until I had to get in the boat…I miss that little fish :).
The special drink of the day each day was a super nice touch.
Thank you for a wonderful week!!!

Our getaway aboard Happy Time was one of the most memorable family vacations we have ever taken!  Bryan and Frances make a great team.  Both are smart and friendly and know the islands inside and out.  Just as we had hoped, most of our days were spent snorkeling, sometimes guided by either Bryan or Frances, who know the waters very well.  And (again) just as we had hoped, evenings were spent stargazing, playing games and planning the next day’s activities.  Between activities, homemade meals and snacks were five star.  We are foodies, but we never thought the food would be so unique and delicious!   We hope to be lucky enough to make more memories on Happy Time.

The boat was beautiful, the food was great! Most importantly however is the crew. I did not realize that as much as I do now until after the trip. Bryan and Francis will always be our gold standard. They were lovely and pleasant people and made us feel at home immediately. We have two 26 year olds and a 12 year old who came on the trip. Bryan and Francis were as engaging with our 12 year old as our adult children, keeping him on the move and always doing fun things.They became a primary reason for why we enjoyed the trip! We felt that we were doing exactly what we wanted to do at all times. We felt safe and secure with this very competent and skilled crew.So when deciding which boat to have your adventure on, spend as much or more time on finding out about the crew. It will take your trip from great to exceptional when the crew is as professional, fun and engaging as Bryan and Francis.If the boat reasonably meets you requirements, pick the Happy Time with Bryan and Francis over any other. Pick the crew as the most important decision. You won’t be disappointed.

We just returned from a week of cruising the BVIs on Happy Time.  What an excellent experience we had.  This was our second excursion sailing the BVIs, both were great experiences yet completely different.  Captain Bryan and first mate Frances could not have provided us with a better environment in which to enjoy our trip.  From the care and skill which they took preparing every meal, to navigating us to the most beautiful and scenic anchorages, they enhanced our experience at every turn.  From the coordination of local transportation to picking out a great restaurant and assisting with all the water sports, the Happy Time team did it all effortlessly.

The group on Happy Time thought you were AWESOME. One couple has been on 3 such trips, and said that this one was their best! They appreciated the special drinks you would prepare nightly, the fresh towels and high level of service that both of you provided throughout, etc. and that the food was fantastic as well.

They did have a wonderful wonderful HAPPY TIME so I thank you both for the stellar report!
