We lived like royalty for the week and can’t wait to do it again!
We had an amazing trip with JP and Eden. Eden is a fantastic chef and all of the meals she prepared were absolutely delicious. JP was a terrific captain/host and very attentive to ensure our entire group was having a great time. In addition to being a very capable captain, he took our kids tubing, was always available to take us to shore at a moment’s notice, and mixed up some amazing cocktails! We lived like royalty for the week and can’t wait to do it again!
