all members of your party help with the survey, each member may fill out their
own if you wish. Return the sheet to the address below at your earliest

Will you be staying in a hotel prior to your charter? Which
hotel? Please note that boarding time is 12 PM. The day a charter starts
is very hectic for us and any early birds will find a very disheveled crew doing
last minute shopping or cleaning. ___________________
If your flight arrives prior to 12 PM please let us know in
advance and make arrangements to drop your luggage at the yacht while you browse
the nearby shops.

We will call you about one week before your vacation to go over
any questions we or you might have and let you know where the boat will be
docked. Depending upon your flight arrival time, we will have lunch or hors
d'oeuvres ready for you when you board.
Have you ever chartered a yacht before? How many times?
____Was it sail or power?________ Crewed or bareboat?___________
Have you chartered or vacationed in the Virgin Islands before?
Please give a brief description of your groups boating
space aboard any boat is always at a premium so it is best if you can
pack in soft, duffle type bags that can be rolled up and stowed in a
closet. Most guests find that they have over packed; you will live in
your bathing suit, tee shirts and shorts. You may want a light cardigan
for evenings and some people like to use old pajamas to protect them
from the sun while snorkeling. Dressing up in the Caribbean usually
entails putting on shoes!! Do bring plenty of sun block!!
Recently sunscreens have been causing permanent stains on our light
colored fabrics. Please do NOT bring Coppertone products.
We know that Neutrogena or Reef Safe brands are non-staining.
Please bring these brands only. Please do not bring self tanning
lotions, oils or spray brands, they will damage the boat.
We do not have any pre-planned itinerary; each charter is unique
and tailored to our guests personal preferences. We have developed a rhythm and
pace that makes a comfortable day. We like to move twice a day, after breakfast
and again after lunch. Some days you may want to stay in one location longer-no
problem. The choice is yours. Most trips take about an hour (you will hear
Wayne say that a lot!). During the week we will take you to remote bays for
fabulous snorkeling, drop you off on palm lined beaches for long walks or you
can go into the little towns to shop for local crafts and souvenirs.
On most charters people want to go out to eat dinner one or two
times. There is a wide selection of restaurants throughout the islands with
great food and incredible ambiance. West Indian food, seafood, traditional fare
and international styles are available. Typically, meals are priced between
$12-25 per person for dinner, lobster meals a bit more. Please understand that
this is at your expense and will not be deducted from your charter fee.
Please list any medical and/or dietary problems we should be
aware of: _________________________________________________________________________
