The Bubbly Pool is rolling
The Bubbly Pool is rolling Lets go swimming Everyone under water Check out our new boat honey
Our family of 4 sailed with Captain Shane for our Spring Break. We could not have asked for a better vacation! Everything was wonderful. Our kids, ages 12 and 14, said it was the perfect trip because of Shane.

We sailed around the USVI and the BVI, and throughout the week Shane took us to so many neat places. We loved that Shane took care of our itinerary, and we didn’t have to worry about where to go. Of course, we could tweek our route anytime we wanted. We communicated with Shane a few weeks before our trip and told him we wanted a mix of water activities, snorkeling, island history and hiking. He provided us all that, plus much more. We were so impressed with Shane’s knowledge of the area, and best of all his enthusiasm in everything we did. We loved everywhere we went, but some places to highlight that our kids keep raving about:

1. Swimming with the turtles on Buck Island
2. Bubbly Pool on Jost Van Dyke
3. Using Shane’s Stand Up Paddle boards
4. Snorkeling everywhere!
5. Pirate show on Leverick Bay
6. Touring the Baths on Virgin Gorda… Shane style
7. Hiking to the Sugar Mill on St. John
8. Swimming to a deserted island

The Guiding Light was quite comfortable, with plenty of space for our family to lounge in or out of the sun. Our son still misses his pirate themed cabin, and now every night at home he asks if he can get a boat bed like the Guiding Light. We loved when the winds were cooperating and we would put the sails up… so peaceful and relaxing.

We had some wonderful food on our trip. Shane is an excellent cook. He made us 3 fabulous dinners throughout the week, that were so good, our kids insisted on getting the recipes for them. Plus, his desserts are amazing! Best of all, Shane makes his own bread from scratch, so our lunchtime sandwiches were yummy. It was so helpful, that Shane did all of our provisioning for us. When we arrived to the Guiding Light, all of our drinks, snacks and food requests were stocked. We also went out to some great local restaurants. The kids favorite place was the Pizza Pi boat… pizza delivery and take-out Virgin Island style. Not only was the homemade pizza incredible, but it was so fun to anchor near the pizza boat to watch it in action.

It was such a great vacation! Shane is so much more than just a captain. He’s also a tour guide, chef, photographer, and an adventurist! We would love to go back, with Shane, and do the Spanish Virgin Islands next.
