Hey Sam and Laura:
What a wonderful day on the water with Sam and Bill. Wow! The trip to the Baths was simply amazing. We had some time on the way back and Sam took us in and around some of the other islands. His knowledge and stories of the other islands really added to the trip! What a super day on the water. You guys are the best! The boat, hospitality and trip added to a very special day in the Islands. Thanks again!
Thanks so much Sam and Bill for a great day in the BVI. We go to St. Thomas every year with our timeshare and always book a day sail or boat trip. This was the best day trip in the 6 years we have been going! Sam is a great Captain, his boat rides extra smooth even in rough waters, and they are so flexible on the itinerary. They are there when you need them and really interesting to talk to but are not intrustive into your families activities etc which I have found is often the case on past trips. I would definitely recommend them for a great day in the islands for 6 people. We will definitely book a trip with them again. Thanks so much Sam and Laura. Linda
WOW!! The best days of our trip were spent with Capt. Sam & Bill. We had 2 fabulous days of snorkeling and touring the BVI’S. My favorite place was Peter Island and lunch was awesome. On our 2nd day, Capt. Sam arranged for Capt. Nate to take our other guests and we all had a super time. I loved Stephen’s morning cocktail and Sydney’s lobster was kickin. The boat is meticulously cared for and the music was great. We will be back!!! Thanks so much for making our trip to St. John….PERFECT !! Big smiles
Captain Sam and Laura,
Our VIBE excursion on August 8th was the highlight of our trip.
The Engle family had a great time. Snorkeling, Smuggler’s Cove, Steven’s Smoothies, Taboo, and Jost van Dyke were fun for everyone. We hope to return soon for another adventure on your pristine vessel.
Captain Sam and Precious Laura(COOL)…WOW What an amazing trip we had! It most definitely was’ Not Just Another Boat Ride! (I’M ON A BOAT….EVERYBODY LOOK AT ME….I’M ON A BOAT!!) You guys are so gracious and knowledgeable about the Islands! We will treasure our memories to the Virgin Islands for a lifetime. Look forward to seeing you both soon!
Love you lots and lots!
Sis and Lunday
The Best day of our vacation to the VIs was aboard VIBE with Capt Sam! We’re from the OBX so we’ve been on the water all our lives…Let me say Capt Sams boat is hands down the cleanest, most well maintained boat I’ve ever seen…Really! You can tell how much pride he takes in his vessel which was apparent before we ever stepped ‘foot’ on it as he had us place our shoes in the ‘shoebox’ before boarding. Within a few minutes of being on the boat with Sam he made us feel as if we’re ol’ friends…super nice guy! We let him decide our destiny for the day & he choose some great spots… Fresh fruit Rum smoothies concocted by Stephen on beautiful Smugglers cove, a great lunch at Sidney’s and of course the trip wouldn’t be complete with finishing the day at White bay…Soggy Dollar, One Love…it was a wonderful day! Can’t wait go back!
(Btw Sam, did you get my visor I left at Sidney’s? I think it was a little too intoxicated and forgot to get back on the boat)
Jody & Dawn (the Midgettes) and Ray & Chris (the Davis’)
Thank you Jody!
Yes, we retrieved your hat on Monday and will send it to you soon!
My best friend Tanya & I took a day trip with Capt Sam, and we had a BLAST! Capt Sam is the coolest of the coolest dudes & didn’t blink an eye when we said we had 2 priorities: snorkeling & partying! He took us to all the best spots & patiently dealt with our “Girls Gone Wild” party vibe. He even rescued us from a scary current! All in all, it was the best boat trip in a long vacation of many water excursions. I would recommend VIBE as the best of the best, for sure.
Our group of six adults went out with Captain Sam in September 2010. We’ve done many private charters over the years, but this was one of our favorites! As regular St. John visitors, Sam took us to some new snorkeling sites and was able to give us our first taste of Smuggler’s Cove on Tortola – we loved it! We’re currently planning our return trip for 2012 and will look Caribbean VIBE up before we leave! Highly recommend this operation for safety, a friendly captain, flexibility and a large, comfortable craft.
Thank you, Captain Sam and Laura, for the most amazing day on the boat and pre-deployment bash. It truly restored our souls. We will forever remember our time with you, especially at Jost Van Dyke and the One Love bar. Looking forward to doing it again when Chris returns. Chris and Mon
Sam, Thanks again for a great day on the water last week. It definately qualified as another perfect day in paradise. The snorkeling at Norman Island was fantastic. The lobster at Sidney’s Peace and Love Bar was outstanding. We’re looking forward to next time. Bernadette, Scott, Deb and David
P.S. It’s still snowing in Minnesota.
Thank you Captain Sam for a wonderful day of snorkeling and fun. The corals and fish were spectacular and I can’t think of a more perfect way to explore the reefs than from your comfortable boat. You’ve made snorkeling fans of all of us. We’ll be back! Cathy, Sam and Anne Black.
Thanks Captain Sam for an amazing day of snorkeling and advice from a resident expert! I’m so glad that Laura told us that your company would be flexible in allowing us to plan a day that was kid friendly and exciting. Just when we thought we couldn’t see more, you surprised us with another great stop with spectacular underground scenery. Everything was top notch from the condition of the boat to the great lunch. Chloe returned to school today to show all of her friends her souvenir necklace. I promise that when I visit again I will know how to jump off of the boat without giving you a heart attack:) — Thanks again! Sheryl & Chloe Rajbhandari
Well, we had two more great trips with Sam on VIBE. Each time is different and a mini adventure. Sidney’s and Taboo for lunch…the hike to bubbly pool on Jost Van Dyke. So many more places of great beauty to visit. We even got a chance to see Foxy perform this year. The jokes are old but always funny anyway.
Sam, see you next year.
Thanks so much Laura and to Captain Sam. We had a wonderful and relaxing trip. Your boat was perfect for the six of us, and was immaculate. We didn’t really have any definite plans on whether we wanted to snorkel, or just island hop, but appreciated the recommendations you gave us. It made for the perfect day!. Thanks again.
Hi Laura and Sam,
We had the best time last week and have not stopped telling everyone about our trip! Thank you for everything and we look forward to visiting you again soon!
Kate, Frank, Rick & Sue
It was truly an amazing day for my entire group. I ended up proposing to Ellie on Sandy Spit and then swam back to the boat for a toast with my new fiance, my closest friends and of course Captain Sam. Thank you VIBE! You are a first class operation!
Hi Laura & Sam
Thank you for an AMAZING day! We will D-E-F-I-N-I-T-E-L-Y see you again this year!
We are looking forward to it as we are currently buried under snow!!
Laura and Sam – What a great day we had last week…it was the perfect end to a somewhat challenging vacation. Thank you for being flexible with our schedule, as we were so looking forward to our trip with you. Our day was so incredible: the snorkeling, secluded beaches, Tortola and Jost…what more could we want? Charlotte has been telling her friends all about her trip on Captain Sam’s boat…she had as much fun as we did. We look forward to our next trip with you! Warm wishes, Aaron, Jennifer & Charlotte
From Laura, Ken, Quinn, Jack, Paige and Claire
I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful day aboard Vibe. It was unanimously voted as the highlight of our St. John trip. It was the best snorkeling of the week, and we snorkeled all over the island during our stay. Sam was so nice and had so much patience with the kids. They loved jumping off the boat. You will be our first call if we are lucky enough to come back to the USVI.
From The Brian and Lori Groves Family
What a day! Sam may tell you he wants to be the best day of your vacation, but it’s better than that – this will be one of the great days of your life. Class act, great boat, unparalleled snorkeling. THE BEST!!
We are so glad we spent the day with our 3 kids on the Vibe – we’re comin’ back!
Brian and Lori
From Tanya & J. Michael Smith
Thank you so much for a fantastic trip! You were so patient with our 6 year old as she learned to snorkel and I have never seen my 12 year old so fearless! Of our week in St. Thomas, our greatest memories and pictures came from our day with you! Thanks again!
From Kevin and Loraine Melich
Dear Sam and Laura,
Thanks for another great trip! All our granddaughters can talk about is the snorkeling and seeing turtles, stingrays and starfish. All I can say is the day goes too fast.
From Don and Sandy
Sandy and I wanted to thank both of you for such a wonderful two days of snorkeling and exploring the islands of the BVI. The bar and restaurant stops were incredible as well. We’re going to do this again next year!!
From Justin and Tiffany Deacon
Sam and Laura,
Thanks for making our honeymoon and vacation in the BVI the best ever!! We had such a great time with both of you learning about all the islands and enjoying all the amazing views and snorkeling spots. You guys are the best! We hope to spend more time with you in the future!! Thanks for everything!!
From Michael and Angela Sims
Sam – Thank you for a wonderful day of snorkeling on some wonderful reefs. The lobster sandwich/bushwackers that we had at Sidneys we enjoyed very much. What a GREAT time. We look forward to visiting with you again.
Michael and Angela Sims
From Rochelle and Ron
Thanks again for a great day around St John! You showed us some great reefs that we never saw in the whole time we lived there. Hope the conch fritters come out good!
We’ll see you soon
From Paul, Dawn, Al, Kathy, Trevor, Annie, Lisa, Michelle Green Bay WI
Sam Thanks for the two awesome boat tours and snorkels. We all had a blast and enjoyed your company and the excellent way you drove your boat. Wish we were still in St John and the lovely weather. Take care and keep us up dated on the new Aussie puppy
From Margie and Joe Fick
Along with Sam, Kevin and Loraine, we had a lovely day scooting around the islands. Sam made the day very entertaining , filled with lots of tidbits of knowledge that we would have never known, about the people of the islands and the surroundings seas….it was a pleasurable experience and we will be sure to do it again when we return to St. Thomas.
From Jonathan Williams
Sam: My wife and I, along with another couple from our cruise ship, did a day excursion with you when we docked in St. Thomas in January. It was the highlight of our trip! The snorkeling was fantastic, the views were amazing, and you and your first mate were excellent hosts in every way, not to mention a lot of fun to hang out with. It made the snorkeling excursion we did at Grand Turk seem pretty lame. Your boat is terrific, and the more intimate experience which the small group setting provided was a big part of what made it a great time and a very special day. Thanks again, and I hope we get the chance to go out with you again when we make it back down there.
Best of luck in these hard times.
Sam, thanks so much for showing us such a great time on Jan. 28th. The trip to Jost Van Dyke was the best day of my vacation by far!! I really appreciated all the information you provided on the islands. Your knowledge is superb! I also appreciated all your suggestions on where to eat, drink, etc. You are a class act, and I would recommend you to anyone. Thanks again!!
Sam! What a great time my group had on your boat! Our visit to Jost Van Dyke on Jan 28 was better than we could have imagined. You are so personal and helpful! Not to mention the skill going through that chop! When we come back, we’ll charter you again in a heartbeat!
From Dee Chaplin Sam, you were right on with our day of snorkeling. Waterlemon Cay was the best place I’ve ever seen in St. John. Fun day was had by all and we thank you for that! Look forward to bringing a group back in 2009!
From Chris Madden
Thank you ALL- especially Patsy and Sam – who was loved by all! “Best day ever”. Was echoed by all!
From Jeff, Judy, Maddie and Blake Rumage
Hi Sam and Laura, we had a great time on our lobster search. We enjoyed the tour of the bays of St.Thomas and St.John. It was the experience of a lifetime and we are so glad that our cousin Heather introduced us and helped us to get to kno w you. Thanks for the hospitality. Sincerely, your Kentucky connections PS: we will send some channel cats back with Heather
From The Garvey Family
Hey Captain Sam! We wanted to thank you again for the amazing experiences we had with you on the boat! The two charters we took with you were the highlights of our vacation to the USVI and our entire family enjoyed every minute aboard the Vibe.
If we are lucky enough to get back down there some day we will most certainly plan another boat excursion with you.
Phil and Danielle Garvey and the Kids
Hey guys! Hope you are doing well. Just wanted to say thank you again for a wonderful time. I had a blast while I was there and I am so ready to come back and go out the water. It was amazing and so beautiful. Anyone who goes out with you guys is sure to have a great time! Thanks again!!!!
From Jeff and Lorraine
We had a great time snorkeling and sailing around the USVI and BVI. Sam, and his crew member Paul were great. They are professionals who care about providing an excellent experience. Great boat, clean and comfortable. Thanks and see you again soon.
From Greg and Yolanda Moix
Thank you Sam and Laura for making out trip to the US and British Virgin Island one of the most memobarble trip of our lives. Your company just completed our trip. We loved every place you took us and of course fabulous meals and drinks we had during both our trips. You truly mades us feel like at home and we can’t wait to come back soon!
From Robinson Family
I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed our day with you! We returned home on Sunday and everyone agrees that the Vibe was our trip highlight! Sidney’s and our visit with Asheem was priceless for the kids. We look forward to a follow up trip with you in the near future! Until then–anybody who asks will be directed to you! Great boat!!! Thanks again.. Regards from the Robinson Family
From Deb & Jeff
Thanks for the best 40th! Our day at sea was amazing and full of smiles and lots of laughs. The snorkling was fantastic and Jost Van Dyke was a once in a lifetime adventure. Thank you Captain Sam and Brent for great memories.
From Tom & Vivian Sendros
Cant’t wait to see you this summer, have already spoken to Patsy. PLANNING NEXT summer or early spring of 2009 already. YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST! Thanks for all our E-mail up-dates. Loved the one about Brent and the shell. We are seeing you again soon and planning for next year already. LOVE YOU GUYS!!!
From Carlos Licona
Captain Sam – We wish that we were on your boat. It snowed last week in Des Moines! The water looks beautiful. Thanks for the pics!
From Susie Raphael
Thanks to Capt. Sam and First Mate Brent for a great time last week on your boat. We enjoyed the awesome snorkeling locations at the Indians,the Caves and Waterlemon Cay. My parents, my husband and I also had a relaxing fun time with good food at Sidney’s Peace and Love Cafe! Brent, we hope the boat hat brought laughs! Thanks very much for the memorable trip you provided! The Harris- Raphael family
From The Canta Family
Our family would like thank Captain Sam and Brent for a great trip on January 30, 2008. The boat was beautiful and the day was wonderful. We loved Caneel Bay for lunch. Thank you for introducing our daughters to snorkeling. See you on our next trip to St. Thomas!!
From Laura on behalf of Martin
Our charter with you on Sept. 17th was the highlight of our trip. I would imagine in a couple of years that Caribbean-Vibe will capture the entire charter market out of Red Hook and be the talk of the islands due to your first-class service! From being a boater myself, I can appreciate Capt. Sam’s sea & boating skills and attention to detail in maintaining a fine boat. It is amazing how he makes that catamaran perform so comfortably and safely. Even though we saw so many excellent boat-only accessible snorkeling sites, Sand Spit Island (Corona commercial site), Stephen’s Bar, Soggy Dollar Bar, and all the other sites in the BVI, we all look forward to motoring with you again, soon.
