It is almost a year to the date that I surprised my boyfriend with what was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime. We were so disappointed and frustrated that we left the boat early and spent his birthday at the St. Thomas Marriott in order to relax and decompress even after already having paid for the boat in...

Well, where to begin our adventure..... We did not originally book the Ayacanora for our trip. We booked through another group and the vessel that we were scheduled to be on was damaged just weeks before our trip and could not sail .Urg, really! So we were re-routed as you might say and having never been on a trip like... More

We just finished a week long stay aboard Ayacanora. What an experience! Roberta and Rick were so lovely and such wonderful hosts. Roberta's culinary skills are top notch! Their experience and knowledge of the area allowed us to experience the best of the British Virgin Islands. It was simply wonderful.

I can't say enough about how wonderful our week was aboard Ayacanora. My husband and I booked it for the second week of our honeymoon. The ship is the perfect blend of homey and luxurious. The cabins are the size of rooms on much larger (and much more expensive) yachts. Roberta's cooking would make celebrity chefs feel inadequate - we're... More

Our trip aboard Ayacanora was everything we’d hoped it would be. Unsure if we could handle 7 days at sea, we booked a three night cruise and Mike and Roberta (along with Rick, we had tri-captains! :)) gave us an experience we’ll never forget. Ayacanora is spectacular. It was really cool seeing passengers on other boats taking pictures of her.... More

My husband and I recently booked a 3 week charter on the Ayacanora to celebrate our 60th birthdays. We invited 30 of our family and close friends to spend time with us on our vacation. Everything was wonderful. We planned our itinerary and had perfect weather. Since it was a tandem cruise, Roberta and Sommer, prepared 3 meals daily +... More

We spent 5 days as part of a 3 boat caravan with the beautiful Ayacanora as our flagship. The islands, the turquoise water and, most of all, the hospitality of our captain and crew made for an incredible vacation. Roberta is a wonderful, creative chef who prepared 3 meals a day plus snacks for 12 people! Our group of 12... More
