My husband and I and our 19 year old triplets spent two weeks on Sint Maarten. At the end of the trip, we decided to charter a yacht for a night and two days. Once we calculated the cost of a ferry ride for five adults to Anguilla and a day snorkelling to see the turtles for abit more we got to do what we wanted and had the boat to ourselves.
A few of us were not sure about sea sickness but we took pills before and at the advise of our fantastic Captain Stefan, we ate a good breakfast abs we were all fine. We had two gorgeous sunny and hot days and we sailed around the Island of Anguilla . Stefan treated us like kings and queens rushing to pop a pillow under my head, making us his famous rum punch , fluffing the beanbag on board to a comfy position. He was a good sport wearing the pirate hat my son brought on and hoisting the pirate flag that we brought along too. Well it was a pirate towel. We stopped at lunch at this tiny Island to a wonderful lunch if the freshest fish ever. We snorkelled in the bluest of waters often being the only ones there. We saw a turtle while snorkelling, snorkelled in a cave and a few of us who were brace enough went cliff jumping with Stefan leading the way. We anchored down at night Ina cute bay and took the dingy to shore to eat dinner. We never saw our shoes for two days!! Sleeping was surprisingly comfortable and very little
Movement from the boat. Waking up to the quiet and still waters was heavenly. You cannot help but be super relaxed while in the boat. Plenty of drinks abs snacks kept us going. An incredible experience and one. I would highly recommend.

We had a bucket list item and that was sailing for a couple of days to St. Barth.
Booked the Seaduction with PYC.
It was even more beautiful and wonderful than we expected!
Thanks to captain Sebastian who is a perfect sailer and great company, and to Celine who suprised us at every meal with very tasteful ingredients.
Our son even said that the salad with chicken was the best he ever tasted!

We were really well taken care of by PYC, their Captain and the cook. Friendly and great service.
The accommodation on board is fine for the trip we made.

We enjoyed not only the Yachts but the 1st class crew on Private Charter SXM. Captain "Manny" and Alex were a lot of fun, and made the whole thing so easy. They were great with kids, even during meltdowns. Manny gave the kids rides in the dingy, which they loved. We liked it so much we decided to go twice this trip. It's so worth it, and this is the crew and outfit to use. We have had not so good experiences in the past with other charter services.

My wife and I were in St Maarten to celebrate our twentieth wedding anniversary. We booked a private charter aboard the Piana while we were on the island. The morning of our initial reservation I received an email from Chantal saying the weather was not very good and we could reschedule if our schedule would allow it. Leading up to our trip, Chantal had communicated to us frequently and had given us tremendous input on an itinerary and food for our charter. We rescheduled our charter for the last full day we had on the island. We had Sebastian as our captain for that day and had a magnificent trip. He was attentive and courteous to our every need, gave us a wonderful narrative of the island and the beaches we encountered. The boat was perfectly clean, the food and drinks were wonderful. We will definitely use Private Yacht Charter again next time we are in St Maarten!
