Dear Chris and Andrea,
Thank you so much for being the perfect hosts. We feel we have had both the best culinary experience and snorkeling experience!
Greg, Cassi and Sam
We reluctantly leave SandiSeas having had a fantastic time thanks to your never-ending kindness and hospitality.
The fun and the amazing food will stay in our memories for a very long time (We will certainly miss the five star cuisine when we return home!)
A great adventure,
Leaving with wonderful memories, a great suntan and a few bruises to remind me of the donut.
Jumping off the boat and going snorkeling were really fun.

Dear Chris and Andrea,
We had and exceptional experience aboard SandiSeas this week. The food was amazing! We loved sailing to a the great snorkel spots, we saw sharks, turtles, dolphins and tons of tropical fish. Saba Rock, Anegada and Soggy Dollar Bar were our highlighted destinations. Thanks for making this a memorable trip. We will have to return!

An outstanding team. A unique experience with a dedicated and charming crew. We wish you all the best.
Being a CEO of an aviation company I know how important corporate image, product competence and professionalism are for those with direct customer contact. I wish I had such pilots as Andrea & Chris because I wouldn’t be worried about my clients on board.
Chris & Andrea were very knowledgeable about all areas of the BVI ’s. Andrea was an excellent Chef catering to everyone’s dietary needs. They were professional but easy going, friendly and welcomed us as family not customers.
We had the best crew. Chris & Andrea were truly amazing. They made the trip the experience that it was by making sure we were happy at all times.
Your extraordinary hospitality during these incredible five days aboard, your meals wowed us every single time, and your stories, sense of humor made your company most enjoyable.
What a treat! Our vacation exceeded our expectations in every way. Andrea & Chris you couldn’t have been nicer, more accommodating. The sailing was fabulous, food exceptional, the sights surpassed only by your gracious company.
