Jenn and Darrel,
After a very stressful and busy year, we were looking forward to our time on the Sea Boss more than ever.
We were hoping to show our kids the wonders and the beauty of the BVI, but Hurricane Irma and Maria had other plans. As disappointed as we were, we were thrilled to be able to explore the Exumas in the Bahamas! What an amazing place! The BVI will always have our hearts but the Exumas is a close second.
Thank you for the relaxation, fun, food and laughter, we can’t thank you ENOUGH!!
-Swimming with nurse sharks.
-Urgent care on Christmas for stitches!
-Isabel (4yrs old)- yeah she’s real “I’m allergic to salad”
-For you both!
And we will see you soon!

Dear Darrel and Jenn,
Thank you just doesn't seem enough for making the trip that we hoped would happen- happen! On the heels of the devastation from Irma and Maria and the amazing humanitarian work the two of you did aboard Sea Boss... You hosted Patty and I for our 30th wedding anniversary.
Jenn, you were such a treat. Nothing beats waking to the sounds of you in the kitchen and the smell of another amazing breakfast. You faced your fears and tackled the eggs benedict on day 1... Both Patty's and your personal favourite. (Jenn's disclaimer- "whether Kraft Dinner or Eggs Benedict- I am SO nervous to make a guests all time favourite meal, even if I've made it a hundred times") Then meal after meal, just nailed it: bolognese, mahi reubens, pulled pork and fish tacos, salmon fillet.. And we will never forget the dumbest thing we said on the charter to you "Uh, Jenn.. We think we're gonna skip or share some desserts"... No way!
And Captain Darrel.. Right off the bat he says to Patty "So Patty, there are two things I have to tell you about swimming in the Bahamas. 1. There's a strong current." She says "I don't care about that. But is the 2nd thing is there are sharks?" "Yup!" But then somehow Darrel coached and persuaded Patty to actually swim with them and touch them! Followed shortly by urging her and helping her swim under the jagged coral and experience the Thunderball Grotto. That's Darrel, confident and all knowing (just ask him).
But by far our highlight aboard Sea Boss for the second time, was our renewal. The look on Patty's face as we came out of the Bubbling Pond to see the breathtakingly gorgeous alter Jenn and Darrel had built with fresh flowers, white ribbons, rocks in a heart, and a pearl in a sand filled shell for our 30!!! Quite simply a moment we will remember for the rest of our lives! Darrel and Jenn, you are both amazing and will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Until next time,
Patty and Bill

My wife and I had the opportunity to spend several days on Sea Boss this past fall and our experience blew away our expectations! We arrived in St. Thomas and were met at the airport by Sea Boss captain, Darrel Hearne, who had a car waiting for us. We headed to Yacht Haven Grand Marina where Sea Boss was docked, and were met by Jenn, our wonderful Chef. After a delicious lunch (exceptional food would be the theme throughout our stay), we were on our way to lovely Peter Island. During the trip, we enjoyed the excellent ride of the Horizon 60 catamaran and became acquainted with the various lounging areas aboard. The captain anchored us in a discrete but protected area of the bay, and after some delightful snorkelling, we spent a relaxing afternoon ashore at Peter Island where we managed to squeeze in a little shopping. We returned to Sea Boss for a 4 course dinner and spent a peaceful night aboard.
The following day, after an amazing breakfast, we cruised to Scrub Island, enjoying the comfortable and quiet ride of the catamaran. In what seemed like no time, we anchored in a secluded but well protected spot just west of the Scrub. The very experienced, captain Darrel, again used his local knowledge to place us in the perfect spot! We enjoyed time in Scrub Island’s 2 level pool before returning to the boat to enjoy the water toys. Later we took the very fast dingy for a tour of the island before returning to the boat for yet another wonderful meal while enjoying the company of the captain Darrel and chef Jenn!
The following morning we had to return to St Thomas but even that trip was memorable. Darrel used his rather extensive knowledge of the islands to give us a waterfront tour, including interesting historical facts. It was a lovely way to spend the day.
Overall we could not have picked a better boat for the trip. Captain Darrel was professional and knowledgeable, Chef Jenn prepared amazing meals, snacks and boat drinks, and the accommodations were perfect. They were the very best of hosts! The master stateroom rivals what you would find on a 100’ yacht, and the stability of the catamaran while anchored is unbeatable. Needless to say, we have already booked a week this summer so the family can experience Sea Boss!

What a wonderful time we had yesterday! My husband and I, along with our two friends, spent the day on Sea Boss, while visiting the BVI’s. We met Darryl and Jenn at the marina in the morning and they helped us escape to a beautiful and peaceful wonderland for most of the day. We first went to a beautiful cove where we enjoyed beautiful scenery. We then went to Peter Island. The ladies spent valuable time at the spa and the men relaxed on the beach and explored the grounds of the resort. Darryl and Jenn were very gracious and were the perfect hosts. Jenn prepared breakfast goodies and then, on our return, brought out even more delectable treats. Darryl was knowledgeable of the area and was able to provide facts and historic tidbits about many of the neighboring islands. We really enjoyed our day on Sea Boss! What an exquisite vessel! It was absolutely the best part of our trip!

August 2016 charterers said of SEA BOSS:
Darrel and Jenn,
Thank you so much for creating such a special and memorable experience for M, the kids and I. Our expectations were blown away with every aspect of the trip. From the comfort of Sea Boss to a great itinerary, to Darrel's question each morning ("So, what do you want to do today?") to Jenn's phenomenal cooking, and attention to every detail by both of you. J and L had a great time and a well deserved break before their senior year in college. Gabriel tested every angle of his bed during his 20 hr/day koala style sleep and "nap" sessions, M fell in love with boating and staying overnight at the beautiful and calm coves that you found for us. Form me, it was a way of experiencing the BVI as I never had before, and simply loved it. I also came out of the trip with a few change orders for our new boat :-) I hope we will see you again soon and thanks for this amazing experience!

"Wow, "exceeding my expectations" is a serious understatement. You coordinated 2 boats, 12 people, visitors, and young adults eager to learn every possible water sport with ease. Ed and I looked forward to this, our last Spring Break with the college crowd, with such anticipation and you provided an experience filled with surprises. Patient instruction was given to all the paddle boarders, wake boarders, skiers, snorkelers, and divers. Darrel, your relaxed and ready for action demeanour allowed the group to go nonstop and fully appreciate the beauty and adventure of this beautiful ecosystem. Su, you literally anticipated every need: delicious and nutritious meals, creative and divine snacks, cocktails, creative tables, and party themes and every other comfort. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
Love Ed and Linda A.
"Wow, what a week! Thanks for showing us a great time for our spring break (woohoo!). Darrel's wakeboard lessons, Su's amazing meals and snacks, combined with your personalities made this the best vacation yet. Thanks so much for everything, we'll be back! See you soon!"
