Amanda - We have now settled back to reality after our wonderful week at sea in the BVI. We had a great time and got to see and do all the things that we had wanted to. Captain Pat is an excellent captain and host – very friendly and accommodating. Just before we set sail we were able to compile a list of the places that we were interested in visiting with the hope that the weather conditions would facilitate us. In the end, even with strong winds from the east on our last two days, Captain Pat was able to adjust our schedule so that we were always safe but got to visit the Baths and Sandy Cay (the last two places on our list)! In Anegada, we rented a car and Captain Pat showed us around to a few nice snorkelling beaches and even a special spot which was stunningly beautiful, the local grocery, a bakery and even an iguana farm. We were very happy that he is as knowledgeable and familiar on land as well as on the sea. Anton was able to get some hands on experience sailing which he enjoyed and we did get to do quite a bit of snorkelling. Oteka is in great condition. Captain Pat is meticulous in taking great care of her. Everything looks new and she had all of the facilities and amenities that we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip! Everything came together wonderfully. Thanks for your assistance in making it happen and even for checking up with me during the trip to ensure all was well. Your advice throughout our booking and planning stage was invaluable especially since you are very familiar with the area. Thanks again Amanda!!! Charter on OTEKA in the BVI January
