Amazing adventure

A week sailing in the Caribbean with Captain Trey was a unique and exciting vacation. His sailing expertise, familiarity with the ports, and his focus on safety made this a vacation to remember. I traveled with two teenagers and they allowed my son to help sail and encouraged his curiosity. Not only was I able to build memories with my kids, but by the end of the week it felt like I had a boatload of new friends!

Loved It!

Expert Sailor, Captain Trey and Pirate Chef extraordinaire, Jean are a great team! We (new friends and old) learned the basics of sailing ~ participating as much or as little as we liked. Enjoyed fabulous breakfasts, lunches, and dinners on board that catered to our personal preferences ~ see her menu! "Dinghied" in for occasional dinners at some colorful local establishments and danced into the night at a beach bar. Scootered around the beautiful island of St. Bart's. Learned how to surf ski and not topple overboard. Snorkeled to our hearts content. Or just hung out on the hammocks listening to the sounds of the waves and taking it all in. So much fun!

Epic Adventure!

The trip with captain Trey was a ton of fun. His knowledge of both the sea and the ports of call is extensive and he keeps safety always in mind. I look forward to going again.

I was lucky enough to be 1st mate for Captain Trey on the first Blue Moon Adventure. Captain Trey can tweak a sail. A wonderful learning experience, not to mention just an extravagantly beautiful sail. Will never forget my trek up to the top of “whatever the name of that lil island was...”
