While Lesli enjoys all the underwater and sailing activities yachting has to offer, her second home is in the galley where her culinary creations come to life.

What a magical experience that we will never forget! Every minute just kept getting better! Ryan and Lesli did not disappoint. Great times! Jason, Mary, Noah & Isaac It is incredibly rare that I leave a family vacation and reflect “This was the most amazing trip ever” BUT, Ryan and Lesli have easily surpassed any and all expectations and have set an incredibly high bar for future trips to come. The hospitality was top notch, the food was high end restaurant quality, the safety and professionalism was always paramount. Most importantly, bringing four kids on charter (ages 7,8,10,11) was so easy with Ryan and Lesli. They were so good with the kids. I could go on and on, but the real testimony with be when we re-book next year. Can’t wait! Frank, Trudy, Bubba, Lucy, Alivia
April 2019
Just wow! These islands have a special place in my heart now seeing them through the eyes of Ryan and Lesli. They made it unforgettable. Every minute of this trip was a memory in te making. The boat, the views, the stops at all the islands were such fun, but spending time with Ryan and Lesli was the highlight. Their knowledge of the islands they love so much was obvious and the way they work together as such a great team is sure to make every charter special. Can’t wait to visit the BVI again! Andy & Diane Schwartz Lesli & Ryan, Words of thanks for this extraordinary experience fail me. The sights, the sounds, smells and colors are overwhelming. This has been the biggest adventure of my life and has been so comfortable. Now, let’s talk about the masterful touch you both handle this gorgeous vessel with…you both make it look so easy and enjoyable. The attention to detail you planned our trip with has been exceptional! Memories I will always treasure. Thank you so much for your generous hospitality! May all your dreams come true, Susan D.

Lesli & Ryan, There are vacations and then there are EXPERIENCES.

Delicious, fresh meals, bottomless painkillers, thoughtful accommodations for the kids and special touches all along. Thank you, thank you for an absolutely incredible family adventure – that we’ll carry with us and dare to surpass next year!! You’re both wonderful – thanks again!

We had a truly memorable trip with Ryan and Lesli during our week in the BVI’s. Between keeping the boat spotless at all times, preparing delicious meals and being knowledgeable about the different islands, Ryan and Lesli consistently went out of their way to enrich our experience aboard Anastasia. Additionally, they were proactive with planning activities and adjusting our itinerary (ie: weather changed at the last minute). Extremely lovely couple and always prioritized our comfort and enjoyment throughout the trip.

January 2020
Ryan and Lesli, Thank you for such an amazing week! While boats, islands, beaches, painkillers and nut whackers will always have their own appeal, you two really made this trip special! We had a great time exploring and learning about the area. You two did a great job coming up with an exciting and engaging itinerary. The hardest part of this trip is getting ready to depart as I sit here and write this. The Anastasia is a wonderful vessel and I can’t imagine a better crew for it. I will always remember the wonderful and hilarious stories we shared this week. You two are the #1 crew in the BVI. If you are ever in Texas, Oregon or Colorado let us know! We can’t wait to make it down here again to see y’all again! Early mornings on the bow and late nights on the dinghy will always be memorable. We hope you have a great rest of the season and many more successful seasons to come. Thanks again for helping us give 2020 and amazing start. The two of you really made it special and very memorable. Thanks for an awesome week! -Jason, Chuck, Edna, Liz, Patrick, Erica

July 2020 USVI Only Charter
It would be hard for me to imagine a crew and a boat that was better than the Anastasia. Our family of 5 (including two teenagers and one young adult child) was entertained and cared for as if we were royalty!! The food was amazing and Captain Ryan was a great host on the underwater scooter, snorkeling, tubing and all the other water sports. Lesli took great care of me and my son as we experienced our first scuba dive in the Caribbean Sea. The dives were perfect for our skill level and we saw some beautiful underwater creatures and coral. Mike. L.

March 2019
What a magical experience that we will never forget! Every minute just kept getting better! Ryan and Lesli did not disappoint. Great times! Jason, Mary, Noah & Isaac It is incredibly rare that I leave a family vacation and reflect “This was the most amazing trip ever” BUT, Ryan and Lesli have easily surpassed any and all expectations and have set an incredibly high bar for future trips to come. The hospitality was top notch, the food was high end restaurant quality, the safety and professionalism was always paramount. Most importantly, bringing four kids on charter (ages 7,8,10,11) was so easy with Ryan and Lesli. They were so good with the kids. I could go on and on, but the real testimony with be when we re-book next year. Can’t wait! Frank, Trudy, Bubba, Lucy, Alivia

Just wow! These islands have a special place in my heart now seeing them through the eyes of Ryan and Lesli. They made it unforgettable. Every minute of this trip was a memory in te making. The boat, the views, the stops at all the islands were such fun, but spending time with Ryan and Lesli was the highlight. Their knowledge of the islands they love so much was obvious and the way they work together as such a great team is sure to make every charter special. Can’t wait to visit the BVI again! Andy & Diane Schwartz Lesli & Ryan, Words of thanks for this extraordinary experience fail me. The sights, the sounds, smells and colors are overwhelming. This has been the biggest adventure of my life and has been so comfortable. Now, let’s talk about the masterful touch you both handle this gorgeous vessel with…you both make it look so easy and enjoyable. The attention to detail you planned our trip with has been exceptional! Memories I will always treasure. Thank you so much for your generous hospitality! May all your dreams come true, Susan D.

Lesli & Ryan, There are vacations and then there are EXPERIENCES.

Delicious, fresh meals, bottomless painkillers, thoughtful accommodations for the kids and special touches all along. Thank you, thank you for an absolutely incredible family adventure – that we’ll carry with us and dare to surpass next year!! You’re both wonderful – thanks again!

New Years 2019/20
We had a truly memorable trip with Ryan and Lesli during our week in the BVI’s. Between keeping the boat spotless at all times, preparing delicious meals and being knowledgeable about the different islands, Ryan and Lesli consistently went out of their way to enrich our experience aboard Anastasia. Additionally, they were proactive with planning activities and adjusting our itinerary (ie: weather changed at the last minute). Extremely lovely couple and always prioritized our comfort and enjoyment throughout the trip. Thanks for a great time!! – Dane Adelman You guys are the absolute best! – Sam Thank you for an amazing week at sea! So many wonderful family memories we will treasure forever. You are an incredible team, and we are so lucky to have you as our crew on this special boat! – Chelsea & Chad Jodi & Joel had and amazing trip! Lesli and Ryan are the BEST! We’ll be back!!
January 2020
Ryan and Lesli, Thank you for such an amazing week! While boats, islands, beaches, painkillers and nut whackers will always have their own appeal, you two really made this trip special! We had a great time exploring and learning about the area. You two did a great job coming up with an exciting and engaging itinerary. The hardest part of this trip is getting ready to depart as I sit here and write this. The Anastasia is a wonderful vessel and I can’t imagine a better crew for it. I will always remember the wonderful and hilarious stories we shared this week. You two are the #1 crew in the BVI. If you are ever in Texas, Oregon or Colorado let us know! We can’t wait to make it down here again to see y’all again! Early mornings on the bow and late nights on the dinghy will always be memorable. We hope you have a great rest of the season and many more successful seasons to come. Thanks again for helping us give 2020 and amazing start. The two of you really made it special and very memorable. Thanks for an awesome week! -Jason, Chuck, Edna, Liz, Patrick, Erica

Ryan and Lesli, What an amazing week! This trip was more than we ever imagined - mainly thanks to the two of you taking such good care of us. You made sure we got to do all the things, see all the sights, enjoy all the delicious foods and tasty drinks, and make all kinds of memories that will last a lifetime. You've inspired us to try new things and it will be fun to see these college girls try all your recipes!

We'd love to share some of our Southern hospitality with y'all if you're ever in Georgia, so we can spoil you a little.

July 2020 USVI Only Charter
It would be hard for me to imagine a crew and a boat that was better than the Anastasia. Our family of 5 (including two teenagers and one young adult child) was entertained and cared for as if we were royalty!! The food was amazing and Captain Ryan was a great host on the underwater scooter, snorkeling, tubing and all the other water sports. Lesli took great care of me and my son as we experienced our first scuba dive in the Caribbean Sea. The dives were perfect for our skill level and we saw some beautiful underwater creatures and coral. Mike. L.
