Just finished 3 weeks aboard Afloat. Had a fantastic trip. Afloat is a reliable and comfortable catamaran. We really loved spending cool evenings at the Baths of Virgin Gorda when we were the only people there. Many thanks to Brent for his great service!

I love evenings at the Baths when at anchor at Valley Trunk Bay. It's a short dinghy ride, and good sandy bottom for anchoring. Valley Trunk Bay has a nice beach, but it's exposed to the West, so it's best during settled weather. I also love Baths after 3PM when "Bad Kitty" tour boats are done.

It's completely exposed. It can and will get nasty there if you get a Tstorms.

Just finished an 11 day charter with Captain's Compass. It was an awesome trip! His boats are older, but worked perfectly! I've used sunsail and conch charters in the past and have to say that Brent's boat wasjust as good mechanically. The engines had no issues, sails looked almost new and we had the best dinghy ever. In my past 7 charters, there was always something with the dinghy...either it didn't idle, was filled with water everyday, or needed to be filled with air everyday...not the case with Captain's Compass! Another issue I find on charter boats is crappy refrigerstion...this charter had no issues! I would definitely recommend Captain's Compass....I don't think a newer boat is worth the extra money...

Hi Brent, will you ever consider taking a boat with a genset and AC in your fleet?

Ahoy George,
And Ahoy to all the other Salty Pirates that continue to contribute to TTOL with your positive knowledge and experiences,
Yes, I am looking to expand my 'fleet' with more cats, both with and without gen-sets, between 38' and 45'.
Fair Winds ...

As Hurricane Irma approaches, I am reminded of another reason why I like Captain's Compass Yacht Charters. Sea Cow Bay has lots of mangroves, and is relatively small and protected. Brent has excellent local knowledge. Much better chance of protecting the boats.
