Kevin and Julia are accomplished sailors, with an adventurous spirit, and a professional service background, which they will deliver on every charter! They are extremely detail oriented, personable, professional, and will make anyone’s time on the water with them, wanting more!

Captain Kevin, growing up in Michigan with family in the industry, he was nearly born on the water. Early on, he found his passion, at only 14 he had his first job, at a marina; quickly, learning the ins and outs of the boating world, he then found himself applying managerial and mechanical skills to his work. Studying civil engineering, at Western Michigan University, he could never fully pull himself away from the water, which is what led him to The Virgin Islands. While then, mastering luxury charters and sailing the near coastal waters, Kevin, was in love, and for the next 4 years became very proficient all across the industry. Being a 100 ton Master Captain with Leadership and Safety certificates, Kevin exemplifies all the qualities you want and expect in a competent captain. In addition to sailing, an avid fan of fishing, water sports, food, and adventure, he is sure to make your vacation experience, on the waters he loves, extremely memorable for years to come; and maybe even teach you a thing or two, to take home to your friends.

Chef Julia Ray grew up in Michigan surrounded by the Great Lakes. She developed a love for boating and sailing on frequent family outings on Lake Huron and the many inland waterways that are abundant in Michigan. Julia was introduced to the Virgin Islands as a child on the first of many annual family vacations more than 30 years ago. Julia learned to cook and entertain while assisting family members during daily meal preparation and by assisting with catering numerous gatherings. Julia has also worked in the restaurant and hospitality industries. She holds degrees in both accounting and social work and although she had a successful career in the corporate world, she left it all behind in 2013 to realize her dream of living in the Virgin Islands. She has since been employed as mate and chef, sailing throughout the islands.

Energetic and personable, Julia loves to meet new people and share her enthusiasm for the islands while ensuring their comfort and safety aboard and in the water. She is certified in first aid, CPR and fire fighting. She spends much of her spare time in the kitchen, preparing and perfecting new recipes for friends and family to sample. Julia delights in spoiling guests with gourmet meals and tempting treats. She prepares a wide variety of meals and remains flexible in her meal planning to ensure the freshest and best quality food is offered to guests. Julia takes much pride in her ability to work with guests to accommodate special diets and food allergies and develop menus that will leave everyone satisfied!

Lasting Memories and Two New Friends!
Thank you so much for making our Honeymoon/1st wedding anniversary everything we were dreaming it could be! From the first moment we stepped on, we felt nothing but welcomed. It was abundantly clear from our first stop in St. John, the love you both have for the islands and the love the people here have for you. That made us feel so welcome everywhere we went. We wish we had one favorite memory but this book is too small to list them. Taylor, the food you cooked was tremendous and we enjoyed all of it. And you are hands down the BEST mooring ball hookarrr these islands have ever seen. Kevin, thank you for navigating us safely all around the islands and making a great dinghy boat Captain. The drinks were terrible ;) You guys make a great team, we have no doubt you will make lasting memories for tons of other guests. We walked on this boat nervous about what we might encounter and we leave with lasting memories and two new friends! May wind and love always fill your sails! Thank you again for EVERYTHING!! Arrrr revoir for now
April 2015/Julia
The Captain and Julia were wonderful. They took care of our every need. They accommodated every request. They were most friendly and a real joy. The food was unbelievably delicious and visually fantastic. The itinerary was perfect. Safari was absolutely comfortable. Marc C
August 2015/Julia
AUGUST 2015/JULIA The Captain & Julia were top notch. We enjoyed not only their professionalism and great ideas about where to go and what to see, but also their stories and meeting good friends of theirs along the way. They really made the trip memorable and relaxing. It was clear from the minute we stepped on Safari that we had chosen a great crew, but by the end of the week we had also made new friends. The food was great. Julia made lots of different dishes and we enjoyed them all. We didn’t have a lot of specific preferences and were very happy with all of her cooking. Come hungry as there’s always lots to eat and drink. We loved the itinerary sailing the Virgin Islands. We liked the route and all the moorages but what really made the trip special was the captain & Julia’s local knowledge. They showed us a handful of small beach towns and the local vibe of each place. We met a number of their friends and really enjoyed seeing some of the spots off the beaten path. Brian L
January 2016/Julia
The Captain & Julia are extremely knowledgeable - very, very accommodating - they sat down with us and listened to our requests, thoughts, etc. to make a plan for the week - and then each day the schedule was addressed and our requests were foremost in their decisions as to what to do. We felt like they had all the knowledge of what we’d like to do and when, and they put together great itineraries. Safari exceeded our expectations - plenty of room, lots of area to gather, or to be alone. Beds were really comfortable, and everything was so clean. The food was beyond our expectations! Julia is an amazing cook - delicious and gorgeous presentation! She customized to us - only complaints are that she fed us too much and that we had to come home without her! We felt like we did the perfect option with the half board - the benefit of Julia’s amazing cooking, and also being able to sample some of the local flavor at dinners and lunch. We had an incredible time - exceeded our expectations in every way! Thanks to you too for coordinating for us - made everything run very smoothly. We really appreciated the advice regarding packing - we did a pretty good job with that. Pre-planning and prep was great and easy. Will definitely recommend to others! And we’ll be back, too! Betsy G
2019/Julia
The most perfect place to start the new year. From the moment we arrived (and even before) Darrin and Juila were the perfect "boat couple". Darrin is warm, confident and accomplished. Hes a great captain and leader. Julia bent over backwards to make sure everyone was very well fed -2 Simi koser, a Gfree, two kids and the rest of us , everyone was happy and full. All of us enjoyed every moment of the week . We hope to return soon and spend more time on the beautiful, comfortable, and friendly boat with the fabulous crew. Thanks! Jessica
June 2019
“We couldn’t ask for a better crew for our charter. A perfect match for our family. All of the food was delicious and Taylor constantly catered to our girls “preferences.” Our favorite part of the trip was Anegada. Feeding donkeys, Cow wreck Bay, and of course the Wonky Dog. Kevin, thanks so much for letting John learn the boat, he is so eager to learn about the boating business. We can’t thank you both enough for all the new and old places you took us to, we have created some wonderful memories. As we end our trip I know there is still so much to see here in the US & BVIs. We now know who to call for our next trip. Thanks again for helping celebrate a milestone in our daughter’s life, and we look forward to our next trip with you guys. Best of luck in your next adventures and we will see you soon!” - The W. Family

We had such a great time on the boat! We enjoyed ALL the meals and games. We can’t wait to come back and play more Jenga and Shanghai Rummy. Thank you Kevin and Taylor for making everything so perfect. We’ll see you soon. Kylee, Kim, Scott, Brody, Kasey & Brooks
July 2019
You made the trip that I have been romanticizing about, the majority of my adult life, a reality. I’m so sorry that Taylor was not able to make it, but thank you for allowing me the opportunity to learn about the boat and to help out whenever I could. You had a very large task to feed the adventurous souls of all seven of the kiddos that we brought onboard. It was such a pleasure observing your passion for what you do, coupled with all of your calculated ways of an engineer. Your ability to balance the freedom of this sailing lifestyle, while remaining so in tune with all of the technical aspects of being on the water, truly make you an amazing captain. Thank you, for blessing Yvonne, myself, our six boys, and Madalyn with the trip of a lifetime. I cannot wait to one day sail with you again! The SXXXXX Family
GRENADINES 2019/Julia
Thank you Darrin & Julia for an amazing week! We are going home more rested than we ever imagined. I am pretty sure that this was the most well fed that we have been ever! From the awesome adventures, to the amazing food to the spectacular views - it is a week that our family will remember forever. We can't thank you enough. -Nancy, Mark, Win & Kali Athens, GA
GRENADINES 2019/Julia
Darrin & Julia, We cannot thank you both enough for an amazing week! You were both such amazing hosts and Ventana was a perfect home for the week! Amazing adventures and beautiful views all around - we could not have asked for more! Thank you again for an unforgettable week! -Mandy, John, Charlie & George
November 2019
NOVEMBER 2019 A lifetime of memories made aboard the Ventana! What a unique, vibrant & fun-filled journey! Julia & Damon were wonderful guides with expert knowledge and stories that made each stop that much richer. Among my favorites were swimming with friendly turtles, jumping off the Willy T, snorkeling in Anegada at breathtaking Loblolly Bay, and coming face-to-face with an adorable smooth trunkfish! Much love, Alexandra New York, NY
November 2019
I thought this would be a once in a lifetime sailing trip, but now I am hoping it can be repeated! You both have made it so special with an amazing variety of meals, local knowledge, attention to details, Captaining & First Mate expertise, and all with patience and kindness. Our family was blessed to have you champion our vacation and we are so grateful. Thank you, thank you for our delicious Thanksgiving meal away from home (and all of them!) Wishing you continued success on Ventana or wherever you are and hoping we meet up again. Come see us in New Hampshire! Nancy
Christmas 2019
Well, given the fact you guys had to deal with two of the rowdiest families in America.. You guys are amazing! Taylor, you are the kindest, smartest, (I won’t go on about my girl crush, but you get it.) Kevin, thanks for having so much patience with us, I know it wasn’t easy. You both are extremely responsible and we couldn’t have had a better time with anyone else. The boat was consistently clean and well maintained. Thank you both for your generosity and warm hospitality. We hope to see you again. Merry Christmas! Love, Jason,Lois, Dayle, Griffin, Sydney, Colin, Logan, Kim, and Mark.
New Years 2019/2020
Kevin and Taylor, We had a fantastic time with you and on Rumba. When you combine a great group of people (Taylor, Kevin, friends and family) with a fabulous boat and the BVI, you cannot help but have a great time. Taylor's AWESOME food, the professionalism you both showed, and the attention to detail made for a great experience. The most relaxing trip we have ever had and even more fun than we expected. Thank you so much. - Steve and Ellen and Camille, Blake and Dade
February 2020
February 2020 Julia, as I sit in the early hours of a St Louis Sunday morning, I reflect back on the past week. I still notice a subtle rocking in my body and see, with some disappointment, that my views are suddenly less breathtaking than those of the past 7 days! Our trip celebrating Tim’s birthday was nothing short of spectacular. This was due in no small measure to your over-the-top hospitality! Your constant care, wonderful cooking, local knowledge, professionalism, great laugh, tolerance for our shenanigans and easy going way meant the world to us! I wish you well. Know that you have our gratitude. Rick and Diane
February 2020/Julia
Ventana was great! The boat was in great shape but the best part is first mate Julia! She is extremely knowledgeable of the area and can lead you to whatever your passions. She is a workhorse and has the best personality for a group of 40-60-year-old couples. She works hard to make sure you enjoy the food, the itinerary, and the boat itself.
February 2020
Taylor & Kevin, We had a wonderful time! All of your meals were fabulous! We made a lot of new memories that we will cherish always. The trip was perfect, you are a very special couple and did a wonderful job with everything! Please come and visit us sometime. Love, Nancy and Terry
February 2020
Kevin & Taylor, Perfect Trip - perfect crew. Thank you for making Rick’s 75th Birthday trip such a wonderful lifetime memory! The most yummy cake ever!! Please keep in touch. Rick and Joyce
February 2020
Kevin & Taylor, Thanks for a perfect introduction to the islands. I still giggle when I think of the guys watching the fish every night, under the boat. Food was excellent - Taylor, you got Peter to eat salad! You are excellent hosts - Thanks for wonderful memories! Come visit us!! Peter & Steph
February 2020
Taylor and Kevin made this special 75th Birthday celebration a perfect memory. We loved being on the water and experiencing all the quaint beaches and bars! Absolutely perfect! Rob and Sue

March 2020
Ahoy Ventana! We had an amazing week - Julia & Kevin are the absolute best! The food and fun were wonderful. We laughed all week. Thank for keeping everyone entertained during such a crazy time in the US. Can't wait to do it again. Bill & Laura
March 2020
5 Stars!! This was a fantastic trip. Kevin and Taylor took us to the best places for snorkeling and relaxing. The food was delicious and we picked up some new flavors and recipes. We could not have asked for better hosts for our vacation. We wish you both a lot of success in whatever you choose to do. We will miss your smiles and I know you will miss our singing! lol - Gaby & Chris
March 2020
Thanks for the culinary delights, Taylor!! This was our 5th sailing trip and a great one. You went at great length to making this trip extra special; great snorkeling locations, beautiful locations, delicious food, and great sailing. Many thanks for many happy memories! And thanks for inflating the flamingo! We still have to come up with a name for it. We’ll get back to you. ;) - Sonja & Gerrit
March 2020
Ventana, Thank you for the most amazing vacation ever! Kevin & Julia, you were fantastic. We are looking forward to sailing with you again. Best wishes, Bill & Krisit
May 2020
Julia & Kevin are a fantastic team. This has been my best vacation ever. Love you both!
July 2020
What an amazing week! Thank you for welcoming us into what is essentially your home and treating us like extended family members. The snorkeling was fantastic! It was a joy discovering something new at every location. Aden and I really loved swimming with the turtle, getting a close up view at a barracuda and holding the sea urchin. The food was also a discovery to behold. Taylor prepared all sorts of dishes that were both delicious and festive. My only regret is that I didn’t eat slowly and enjoy all the fresh new flavors I’d never had before. Luckily dessert came shortly after and whisked my taste buds back to heaven. {Request the cheesecake.} As far as Captains go, Kevin is the many want behind the wheel, on the engine compartment, to take you through what is arguably the best place on earth. His knowledge of and commitment to Good Vibrations shows from the moment you leave the harbor. Sailing the open sea is an adventure everyone should go on. It’s easy to appreciate the world we live when you’re on the water with the wind in the sails. Overall we had a great trip, thank you for helping us bring our families closer together and putting up with our nonsense for the entire trip. Until we meet again. - Ty & Aden
July 2020
It was everything I hoped for, and we are appreciative of all you did to ensure a great, memorable trip for my family, that was out of our normal comfort zone. Please visit us in Wyoming when you are in the area. - Dan, Justin, Nick, Zeke, Wickey, & Aaron
USVI Charter July 2020
Taylor & Kevin, Thank you for an amazing week. You exceeded every expectation that we had by going above and beyond with everything you did for us. We appreciate you taking the time to get to know us and making special meals for Marc. We loved all of your recommendations and even loved hiking in our flip-flops. :) We loved relaxing and taking in all the sights of the USVI. I think this is the most relaxed I’ve ever seen Dan on vacation! Taylor, your food was delicious, and Kevin’s drinks were amazing! We’re sad to cut our trip short, but appreciate you keeping us safe on the boat. Come visit us in Florida and we will show you guys an amazing time! Love our family, Dan, Julie, Al, Lisa, Jack, Kaylee, Danny, and Marc.

“This trip has truly been a once in a lifetime vacation! Everything from The views to the ceiling to the food was perfect. Kevin knows all the best places to take us for snorkeling and Julia’s food was always outstanding. This was definitely one of the best Christmas’ ever! Merry Christmas to you all and here’s to a great new year.” Laursen Family
Dec 2020
“Wow! No way to put this trip into words. From initial planning to embarkation, to our last day, every step was easy and the results were fantastic. Such fun creating new family memories and new family members, of kevin and Julia. Best wishes for your adventures the season. Cannot wait to do it again!” Rhodes Family
Dec 2020
“Traveling is one of my favorite things to do, and our week on Good Vibrations, reinforced all of the reasons it is a soul feeder to me. Learning about new areas of our world upon a safe, comfortable, beautiful accommodation is such a luxury; and to do it the hands of two professionals like Kevin and Julia, is quite sublime. Convincing my wonderful husband to take us on a family trip in the heat of COVID-19 was no easy feat; and this trip met all of our expectations. First, Good Vibrations is a very comfortable home. The memory foam beds, bamboo pillows, individual bathrooms (well appointed), and the actual layout affording spaces to spread out amounts your guests. As well appointed as Good Vibrations is, its “secret sauce” is truly due to the hands she is in. Kevin and Julia helped curate and create a very special week for us. We stayed in the USVI, these restrictions never made a day seem not full of activity, fun and beauty, or “anemic” in any way. Kevin made several tweaks to the itinerary in order to keep us in calm waters as the weather picked up; and Julia kept cooking the most delicious, fresh meals beautifully prepared and seemingly effortlessly presented. It is said that true “Professionals” make their craft look easy when it is anything but that, this is what our fortunate family experienced this week. Thank you Kevin and Julia for helping us close a complicated year with and incredibly rich family experience. “ Love, the PXXXX family.

Kevin and Julia are accomplished sailors, with an adventurous spirit, and a professional service background, which they will deliver on every charter! They are extremely detail oriented, personable, professional, and will make anyone’s time on the water with them, wanting more!

Captain Kevin, growing up in Michigan with family in the industry, he was nearly born on the water. Early on, he found his passion, at only 14 he had his first job, at a marina; quickly, learning the ins and outs of the boating world, he then found himself applying managerial and mechanical skills to his work. Studying civil engineering, at Western Michigan University, he could never fully pull himself away from the water, which is what led him to The Virgin Islands. While then, mastering luxury charters and sailing the near coastal waters, Kevin, was in love, and for the next 4 years became very proficient all across the industry. Being a 100 ton Master Captain with Leadership and Safety certificates, Kevin exemplifies all the qualities you want and expect in a competent captain. In addition to sailing, an avid fan of fishing, water sports, food, and adventure, he is sure to make your vacation experience, on the waters he loves, extremely memorable for years to come; and maybe even teach you a thing or two, to take home to your friends.

Chef Julia Ray grew up in Michigan surrounded by the Great Lakes. She developed a love for boating and sailing on frequent family outings on Lake Huron and the many inland waterways that are abundant in Michigan. Julia was introduced to the Virgin Islands as a child on the first of many annual family vacations more than 30 years ago. Julia learned to cook and entertain while assisting family members during daily meal preparation and by assisting with catering numerous gatherings. Julia has also worked in the restaurant and hospitality industries. She holds degrees in both accounting and social work and although she had a successful career in the corporate world, she left it all behind in 2013 to realize her dream of living in the Virgin Islands. She has since been employed as mate and chef, sailing throughout the islands.

Energetic and personable, Julia loves to meet new people and share her enthusiasm for the islands while ensuring their comfort and safety aboard and in the water. She is certified in first aid, CPR and fire fighting. She spends much of her spare time in the kitchen, preparing and perfecting new recipes for friends and family to sample. Julia delights in spoiling guests with gourmet meals and tempting treats. She prepares a wide variety of meals and remains flexible in her meal planning to ensure the freshest and best quality food is offered to guests. Julia takes much pride in her ability to work with guests to accommodate special diets and food allergies and develop menus that will leave everyone satisfied!

Lasting Memories and Two New Friends!
Thank you so much for making our Honeymoon/1st wedding anniversary everything we were dreaming it could be! From the first moment we stepped on, we felt nothing but welcomed. It was abundantly clear from our first stop in St. John, the love you both have for the islands and the love the people here have for you. That made us feel so welcome everywhere we went. We wish we had one favorite memory but this book is too small to list them. Taylor, the food you cooked was tremendous and we enjoyed all of it. And you are hands down the BEST mooring ball hookarrr these islands have ever seen. Kevin, thank you for navigating us safely all around the islands and making a great dinghy boat Captain. The drinks were terrible ;) You guys make a great team, we have no doubt you will make lasting memories for tons of other guests. We walked on this boat nervous about what we might encounter and we leave with lasting memories and two new friends! May wind and love always fill your sails! Thank you again for EVERYTHING!! Arrrr revoir for now

The Captain and Julia were wonderful. They took care of our every need. They accommodated every request. They were most friendly and a real joy. The food was unbelievably delicious and visually fantastic. The itinerary was perfect. Safari was absolutely comfortable. Marc C
August 2015/Julia
AUGUST 2015/JULIA The Captain & Julia were top notch. We enjoyed not only their professionalism and great ideas about where to go and what to see, but also their stories and meeting good friends of theirs along the way. They really made the trip memorable and relaxing. It was clear from the minute we stepped on Safari that we had chosen a great crew, but by the end of the week we had also made new friends. The food was great. Julia made lots of different dishes and we enjoyed them all. We didn’t have a lot of specific preferences and were very happy with all of her cooking. Come hungry as there’s always lots to eat and drink. We loved the itinerary sailing the Virgin Islands. We liked the route and all the moorages but what really made the trip special was the captain & Julia’s local knowledge. They showed us a handful of small beach towns and the local vibe of each place. We met a number of their friends and really enjoyed seeing some of the spots off the beaten path. Brian L
January 2016/Julia
The Captain & Julia are extremely knowledgeable - very, very accommodating - they sat down with us and listened to our requests, thoughts, etc. to make a plan for the week - and then each day the schedule was addressed and our requests were foremost in their decisions as to what to do. We felt like they had all the knowledge of what we’d like to do and when, and they put together great itineraries. Safari exceeded our expectations - plenty of room, lots of area to gather, or to be alone. Beds were really comfortable, and everything was so clean. The food was beyond our expectations! Julia is an amazing cook - delicious and gorgeous presentation! She customized to us - only complaints are that she fed us too much and that we had to come home without her! We felt like we did the perfect option with the half board - the benefit of Julia’s amazing cooking, and also being able to sample some of the local flavor at dinners and lunch. We had an incredible time - exceeded our expectations in every way! Thanks to you too for coordinating for us - made everything run very smoothly. We really appreciated the advice regarding packing - we did a pretty good job with that. Pre-planning and prep was great and easy. Will definitely recommend to others! And we’ll be back, too! Betsy G
2019/Julia
The most perfect place to start the new year. From the moment we arrived (and even before) Darrin and Juila were the perfect "boat couple". Darrin is warm, confident and accomplished. Hes a great captain and leader. Julia bent over backwards to make sure everyone was very well fed -2 Simi koser, a Gfree, two kids and the rest of us , everyone was happy and full. All of us enjoyed every moment of the week . We hope to return soon and spend more time on the beautiful, comfortable, and friendly boat with the fabulous crew. Thanks! Jessica
June 2019
“We couldn’t ask for a better crew for our charter. A perfect match for our family. All of the food was delicious and Taylor constantly catered to our girls “preferences.” Our favorite part of the trip was Anegada. Feeding donkeys, Cow wreck Bay, and of course the Wonky Dog. Kevin, thanks so much for letting John learn the boat, he is so eager to learn about the boating business. We can’t thank you both enough for all the new and old places you took us to, we have created some wonderful memories. As we end our trip I know there is still so much to see here in the US & BVIs. We now know who to call for our next trip. Thanks again for helping celebrate a milestone in our daughter’s life, and we look forward to our next trip with you guys. Best of luck in your next adventures and we will see you soon!” - The W. Family

We had such a great time on the boat! We enjoyed ALL the meals and games. We can’t wait to come back and play more Jenga and Shanghai Rummy. Thank you Kevin and Taylor for making everything so perfect. We’ll see you soon. Kylee, Kim, Scott, Brody, Kasey & Brooks
July 2019
You made the trip that I have been romanticizing about, the majority of my adult life, a reality. I’m so sorry that Taylor was not able to make it, but thank you for allowing me the opportunity to learn about the boat and to help out whenever I could. You had a very large task to feed the adventurous souls of all seven of the kiddos that we brought onboard. It was such a pleasure observing your passion for what you do, coupled with all of your calculated ways of an engineer. Your ability to balance the freedom of this sailing lifestyle, while remaining so in tune with all of the technical aspects of being on the water, truly make you an amazing captain. Thank you, for blessing Yvonne, myself, our six boys, and Madalyn with the trip of a lifetime. I cannot wait to one day sail with you again! The SXXXXX Family
GRENADINES 2019/Julia
Thank you Darrin & Julia for an amazing week! We are going home more rested than we ever imagined. I am pretty sure that this was the most well fed that we have been ever! From the awesome adventures, to the amazing food to the spectacular views - it is a week that our family will remember forever. We can't thank you enough. -Nancy, Mark, Win & Kali Athens, GA
GRENADINES 2019/Julia
Darrin & Julia, We cannot thank you both enough for an amazing week! You were both such amazing hosts and Ventana was a perfect home for the week!

November 2019
NOVEMBER 2019 A lifetime of memories made aboard the Ventana! What a unique, vibrant & fun-filled journey! Julia & Damon were wonderful guides with expert knowledge and stories that made each stop that much richer. Among my favorites were swimming with friendly turtles, jumping off the Willy T, snorkeling in Anegada at breathtaking Loblolly Bay, and coming face-to-face with an adorable smooth trunkfish! Much love, Alexandra New York, NY
November 2019
I thought this would be a once in a lifetime sailing trip, but now I am hoping it can be repeated! You both have made it so special with an amazing variety of meals, local knowledge, attention to details, Captaining & First Mate expertise, and all with patience and kindness. Our family was blessed to have you champion our vacation and we are so grateful. Thank you, thank you for our delicious Thanksgiving meal away from home (and all of them!) Wishing you continued success on Ventana or wherever you are and hoping we meet up again. Come see us in New Hampshire! Nancy
Christmas 2019
Well, given the fact you guys had to deal with two of the rowdiest families in America.. You guys are amazing! Taylor, you are the kindest, smartest, (I won’t go on about my girl crush, but you get it.) Kevin, thanks for having so much patience with us, I know it wasn’t easy. You both are extremely responsible and we couldn’t have had a better time with anyone else. The boat was consistently clean and well maintained. Thank you both for your generosity and warm hospitality. We hope to see you again. Merry Christmas! Love, Jason,Lois, Dayle, Griffin, Sydney, Colin, Logan, Kim, and Mark.
New Years 2019/2020
Kevin and Taylor, We had a fantastic time with you and on Rumba. When you combine a great group of people (Taylor, Kevin, friends and family) with a fabulous boat and the BVI, you cannot help but have a great time. Taylor's AWESOME food, the professionalism you both showed, and the attention to detail made for a great experience. The most relaxing trip we have ever had and even more fun than we expected. Thank you so much. - Steve and Ellen and Camille, Blake and Dade
February 2020
February 2020 Julia, as I sit in the early hours of a St Louis Sunday morning, I reflect back on the past week. I still notice a subtle rocking in my body and see, with some disappointment, that my views are suddenly less breathtaking than those of the past 7 days! Our trip celebrating Tim’s birthday was nothing short of spectacular. This was due in no small measure to your over-the-top hospitality! Your constant care, wonderful cooking, local knowledge, professionalism, great laugh, tolerance for our shenanigans and easy going way meant the world to us! I wish you well. Know that you have our gratitude. Rick and Diane
February 2020/Julia
Ventana was great! The boat was in great shape but the best part is first mate Julia! She is extremely knowledgeable of the area and can lead you to whatever your passions. She is a workhorse and has the best personality for a group of 40-60-year-old couples. She works hard to make sure you enjoy the food, the itinerary, and the boat itself.
February 2020
Taylor & Kevin, We had a wonderful time! All of your meals were fabulous! We made a lot of new memories that we will cherish always. The trip was perfect, you are a very special couple and did a wonderful job with everything! Please come and visit us sometime. Love, Nancy and Terry
February 2020
Kevin & Taylor, Perfect Trip - perfect crew. Thank you for making Rick’s 75th Birthday trip such a wonderful lifetime memory! The most yummy cake ever!! Please keep in touch. Rick and Joyce
February 2020
Kevin & Taylor, Thanks for a perfect introduction to the islands. I still giggle when I think of the guys watching the fish every night, under the boat. Food was excellent - Taylor, you got Peter to eat salad! You are excellent hosts - Thanks for wonderful memories! Come visit us!! Peter & Steph
February 2020
Taylor and Kevin made this special 75th Birthday celebration a perfect memory. We loved being on the water and experiencing all the quaint beaches and bars! Absolutely perfect! Rob and Sue

March 2020
Ahoy Ventana! We had an amazing week - Julia & Kevin are the absolute best! The food and fun were wonderful. We laughed all week. Thank for keeping everyone entertained during such a crazy time in the US. Can't wait to do it again. Bill & Laura
March 2020
5 Stars!! This was a fantastic trip. Kevin and Taylor took us to the best places for snorkeling and relaxing. The food was delicious and we picked up some new flavors and recipes. We could not have asked for better hosts for our vacation. We wish you both a lot of success in whatever you choose to do. We will miss your smiles and I know you will miss our singing! lol - Gaby & Chris
March 2020
Thanks for the culinary delights, Taylor!! This was our 5th sailing trip and a great one. You went at great length to making this trip extra special; great snorkeling locations, beautiful locations, delicious food, and great sailing. Many thanks for many happy memories! And thanks for inflating the flamingo! We still have to come up with a name for it. We’ll get back to you. ;) - Sonja & Gerrit
March 2020
Ventana, Thank you for the most amazing vacation ever! Kevin & Julia, you were fantastic. We are looking forward to sailing with you again. Best wishes, Bill & Krisit
May 2020
Julia & Kevin are a fantastic team. This has been my best vacation ever. Love you both!
July 2020
What an amazing week! Thank you for welcoming us into what is essentially your home and treating us like extended family members. The snorkeling was fantastic! It was a joy discovering something new at every location. Aden and I really loved swimming with the turtle, getting a close up view at a barracuda and holding the sea urchin. The food was also a discovery to behold. Taylor prepared all sorts of dishes that were both delicious and festive. My only regret is that I didn’t eat slowly and enjoy all the fresh new flavors I’d never had before. Luckily dessert came shortly after and whisked my taste buds back to heaven. {Request the cheesecake.} As far as Captains go, Kevin is the many want behind the wheel, on the engine compartment, to take you through what is arguably the best place on earth. His knowledge of and commitment to Good Vibrations shows from the moment you leave the harbor. Sailing the open sea is an adventure everyone should go on. It’s easy to appreciate the world we live when you’re on the water with the wind in the sails. Overall we had a great trip, thank you for helping us bring our families closer together and putting up with our nonsense for the entire trip. Until we meet again. - Ty & Aden
July 2020
It was everything I hoped for, and we are appreciative of all you did to ensure a great, memorable trip for my family, that was out of our normal comfort zone. Please visit us in Wyoming when you are in the area. - Dan, Justin, Nick, Zeke, Wickey, & Aaron
USVI Charter July 2020
Taylor & Kevin, Thank you for an amazing week. You exceeded every expectation that we had by going above and beyond with everything you did for us. We appreciate you taking the time to get to know us and making special meals for Marc. We loved all of your recommendations and even loved hiking in our flip-flops. :) We loved relaxing and taking in all the sights of the USVI. I think this is the most relaxed I’ve ever seen Dan on vacation! Taylor, your food was delicious, and Kevin’s drinks were amazing! We’re sad to cut our trip short, but appreciate you keeping us safe on the boat. Come visit us in Florida and we will show you guys an amazing time! Love our family, Dan, Julie, Al, Lisa, Jack, Kaylee, Danny, and Marc.

“This trip has truly been a once in a lifetime vacation! Everything from The views to the ceiling to the food was perfect. Kevin knows all the best places to take us for snorkeling and Julia’s food was always outstanding. This was definitely one of the best Christmas’ ever! Merry Christmas to you all and here’s to a great new year.” Laursen Family
Dec 2020
“Wow! No way to put this trip into words. From initial planning to embarkation, to our last day, every step was easy and the results were fantastic. Such fun creating new family memories and new family members, of kevin and Julia. Best wishes for your adventures the season. Cannot wait to do it again!” Rhodes Family
Dec 2020
“Traveling is one of my favorite things to do, and our week on Good Vibrations, reinforced all of the reasons it is a soul feeder to me. Learning about new areas of our world upon a safe, comfortable, beautiful accommodation is such a luxury; and to do it the hands of two professionals like Kevin and Julia, is quite sublime. Convincing my wonderful husband to take us on a family trip in the heat of COVID-19 was no easy feat; and this trip met all of our expectations. First, Good Vibrations is a very comfortable home. The memory foam beds, bamboo pillows, individual bathrooms (well appointed), and the actual layout affording spaces to spread out amounts your guests. As well appointed as Good Vibrations is, its “secret sauce” is truly due to the hands she is in. Kevin and Julia helped curate and create a very special week for us. We stayed in the USVI, these restrictions never made a day seem not full of activity, fun and beauty, or “anemic” in any way. Kevin made several tweaks to the itinerary in order to keep us in calm waters as the weather picked up; and Julia kept cooking the most delicious, fresh meals beautifully prepared and seemingly effortlessly presented. It is said that true “Professionals” make their craft look easy when it is anything but that, this is what our fortunate family experienced this week. Thank you Kevin and Julia for helping us close a complicated year with and incredibly rich family experience. “ Love, the PXXXX family.
