My husband and I went on a day sail with Kuralu to Jost Van Dyke out of West End Tortola. Gary, Oliver, and Noah were great hosts. It was really nice to just spend a few hours actually sailing and laying in the sun on their catamaran. The stops at Sandy Spit and White Bay were very nice as well,... More

Gary, Oliver and the friendly dog, Grommet, made our sailing day amazing. We appreciated the wonderful food, care to help us find super snorkelling sites, and relaxed atmosphere. It was our second visit to the Kuralu, which we highly recommend.

Whenever I go to Tortola I get a day on the Kuralu - Gary is the perfect captain. We went snorkeling & swimming off of Sandy Pit and then a few drinks over at the Soggy Dollar Bar. The crew is always so friendly and helpful -- plenty to drink and the food is perfect and delicious - I highly... More

We went for a quick weekend getaway in Tortola and booked this trip because it will take us to the Indians, which is one of my favorite spots for snorkeling in Tortola. Crew was great and on top of everything. My rumpunch was always full! They never let it go half way :) we had a great time! See you... More

We booked a day sail with Gary to Jost Van Dyke and had a spectacular day! We left on time and spent the whole day on the water. It is clear that Gary knows how to handle a boat, and has an intimate knowledge of the waters in which he sails. Gary, Oliver, and Grommit were all a pleasure to... More

We were a private group renting a house and booked the boat for some snorkeling and a trip to Jost Van Dyke. Gary knows his stuff and we bombarded him with sailing/BVI questions virtually all day! Not only is Gary passionate about what he's doing, he seemed to truly enjoy sharing his lifestyle with us. Oliver was a great host,... More

We sailed with Gary and Oliver in February 2015. We did the trip to Jost Van Dyke and had a wonderful time! Water was really choppy and Gary gave us the option of trying to snorkel to Sandy Spit or to go somewhere a little more protected from the wind. We all opted for the second choice and had a... More
