Mike and Lesley were tremendous in their hospitality and friendliness. We sailed the BVI's with them for a week and it was truly a memorable trip. Lesley is a fabulous cook...we all went home a little heavier...and Mike was the nicest host. You wanted for nothing on board during the entire trip. We had a great time snorkeling/diving, the cat is fully equipped, and the accommodations were spectacular. We've sailed many times down in the BVI's and we will certainly go back and spend some time on this boat with the 2 of them.
We were a small group of two couples who spent a week aboard the Exta-Sea sailing around the BVI. Our hosts, Mike and Lesley, were extraordinarty. They made us feel welcome immediately and were an absolute pleasure. Mike's exceptional sailing and nautical experience made us feel safe both day and night. Lesley is an excellent chef who amazed us three times a day with her delicious and well presented meals. Together, their hospitality and suggestions on where to go and what to do made our week in paradise even better.
The BVI is gorgeous, the weather is wonderful, and you cannot beat the beautiful colors of the Caribbean. Sailing on the Exta-Sea, snorkeling, and exploring the islands for a week in January was perfect in every way. Highly recommended to anyone who is looking for a beautiful and relaxing vacation aboard a ship with delightful hosts.
The customer service/meals we received the entire duration of our vacation was exemplary. Mike & Leslie welcomed us into their home and were an integral part of how well our vacation was, they never made us feel like we were in their way, or were asking too much. They got to know us as people and shared their family stories with us as well. Leslie is an outstanding cook, the food was amazing and Mike was a great Captain getting us to so many of the best locations within our 5 days.
Mike has a great music library & isn't afraid to turn up the volume & have some fun! Leslie brought us snacks at just the right time and both of them were laid back yet on top of every detail at the same time. Ask Mike to make you a margarita, he makes a mean one!
It was truly the most fun & relaxing vacation of my life. Expensive yes, but worth every penny! I'd do it every year if I could. I miss Mike & Leslie already!!
Book this trip now!! You won't regret it :)
Fabulous New Year at Sea! This was our second time on Exta-Sea and for obvious reasons it won't be our last. Mike and Lesley do a superb job in seeing that everything is perfect down to the last detail.
Lesley handled the menu and prepared gourmet quality meals all while Mike handled the diving and recreation. Libations we're as requested and plentiful.
The only disappointment is when the trip ends as once you're there you simply wish it could go on forever. From first class accommodations to beautiful scenery this is an experience not to be missed.
We have done several cruise ship and this was the first time sailing in a smaller environment. I don't think we can ever go back on a Carnival Cruise ship again! Captain Mike and his wife Leslie are the best and are lovely people to be around. The food Leslie made for us was first class. On top of sailing we went fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling everyday, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, wake boarding and lots of good eating! We went island hoping and a lot of relaxing time.
If you do the math and fill the boat this is a better value than the big cruise ships. I recommend the Exta-Sea catamaran highly and Mike and Leslie even higher!
