Captain Dylan and Chef Gi have an enthusiasm and passion for life on the water. With their easy going charm and love of hospitality, your trip aboard its sure to be that of a lifetime!

Dylan guides you to perfect bays and secret spots, pairing your expectations and his knowledge to make exploring the Islands all the more enjoyable. Nothing is too much for any of his guests, be that sun tanning on the flybridge with a cocktail in hand, or getting you involved in sailing Slivochka. Dylan grew up sailing the Indian and Atlantic Oceans with his family, totaling 20 000 NM over six years, having left his home of South Africa at age 6. Fully qualified and commercially endorsed as a MCA/RYA Yacht Master Offshore 200GT, he has a full STCW and is a certified PADI Dive Master.

Gi grew up in Mozambique, a country on the east coast of Africa, famous for its tropical beaches, fresh seafood and Portuguese influences. At 16 years old she began leading guests on private safari tours where she specialized in identifying birds and expanded on her knowledge and love of animals. Later on she would discover her interest in local and international cooking, learning from seasoned chefs operating within the Safari. In 2017 she made the decision to advance her skills by completing the Capital Culinary School Diploma in Professional Cookery, affording her the opportunity to return to Mozambique to delight guests with her refined culinary skills. She now looks forward to welcoming you aboard Slivochka and creating delicious meals for you and your friends and family.

Both Dylan and Gi enjoy families and children, and aim to maximize the fun and adventure in each charter, whilst providing a relaxed atmosphere for you to unwind. They great at creating a vibe and throwing a party, perfect for couples or those looking to visit in island style! They believe that attention to detail and personal touches make all the difference!

Dylan, Bella Thank you for amazing vacations! We enjoyed every minutes: Snorkeling, wake, knee bord, paddle, kayak, etc... Food was also delicious :) :) :) Big Thank you, Wirth Family
February Charter
Hi Kate and Jason, Finally we get to send you both a note of thanks for making our BVI experience beyond our expectation. We appreciated the attentive concern you professionally provided to both of us. Hope all is well, we have shared our photos with family and friends and continued to hi-light our captain and chef at every opportunity. You are an awesome couple. Again, many thanks and Big Hugs! Vince and Heather
The Lee Charter
My daughter said to me today, Dad you know when we were on board Dolphin Splash it felt like I was in a dream, it was like the Disney World cruise, but better! I can say that making my children happy also makes me delighted, so all of us really loved being with Jason and Kate. It worried me a little that my family and I were going to have strangers at every meal, but I was surprised (I bet it was their mega yacht experience), that at many meals they were nowhere to be seen, very smart, we all had our family bonding time, then they would magically appear and be serving wine. The first impression always impacts people the most, my wife and I were happily impressed with a crew in white uniform meeting us. We did not feel they had to wear their uniform, but my wife and I are superbly delighted we did have the best captain and chef team. It was little things they did that impressed my whole family. Every single aspect of this charter on board Dolphin Splash was magnificent, we are delighted we selected Dolphin Splash! The kids insist we get back with Jason and Kate, see you soon. The entire happy Lee Family!

DYLAN & KERI
Dylan and Keri, We had planned to do this unusual vacation for 5-7 years and we selected the best crew and catamaran, our children loved you guys. You shared so many of your stories about your lives and interacted with us all of the time. It was great to have you do this and make us feel so at home! We felt that you are an extended part of our family. We were comfortable and at home all the time! Dylan your great sense of humor – you challenged the kids and I to competitions, nice – it wasn’t a job it was something that you liked to do. You are very talented at what you do. You shared with us various tasks and gave us all mini lessons on sailing! Each and every meal was far superior to what we have imagined it to be, can we take Keri home with us? Please keep in touch. Dennis and Wendy
Dylan and Keri
This has, by far been the most incredible trip for our family that I could have imagined. Dylan and Keri had all 16 of our guests at every meal which was important to us, thank you for setting up a 8 guest bare boat for the others to sleep in. We have grown to love you! Thank you for taking such wonderful care of our large family. Dylan the children loved you. Spending our evenings sharing dinners together and just relaxing watching the fish or looking at the stars was exactly what we had hoped for. We will all go home with memories. The Adamsons.
17 - 24 February 2018
Dylan + Keri You have both been instrumental in giving us a fabulous vacation! You've gone above and beyond to make our time on Slivochka especially memorable. Keri's food was world class delicious, Keri-you seemed to anticipate our every need even before we knew it ourselves. Such as offering hot chocolate after coming back, a bit chilly, after snorkeling. And bringing up blankets at night to the group on the sky bridge because we may become chilly. Dylan-you kept us safe in the wind and the rainstorms. You were so patient with those who had less snorkeling experience and led us on the great snorkeling paddle board caravan with your strong & capable swimming prowess. You miraculously saved Paul's hearing aids, coming to their rescue with the crevice of the rocks at "The Indians" snorkeling location. We cannot imagine a more gracious and capable crew, and we have been blessed. Thank you for fond memories that will last a lifetime! P.S. sorry about sinking the floating island... Fondly - Paula & Gary Gillette Richard + Winnie Ricker Eileen & Tom B Donna Hargett
25 Feb - 3 March 2018
Dear Keri and Dylan, Our little piece of heaven in The BVI and you two made it possible! We're afraid that all other vacations will pale in comparison to this fantastic week. It was the perfect storm - luxury boat, 5 star cuisine, gorgeous weather, great friends and your wonderful care and consideration. you both made the trip - you rock - you're awesome. we wish you much success and happiness and good fortune in all of your future endeavours. Much love, and thank you both so very much - Cathy + Mike Corbett Thank you, thank you, thank you! You both went above & beyond, you exceeded our expectations! Thank you for making my St. David's Day memorable. Always welcomes in our "neck of the wods" Cilla + Bill Lannan Amazing, amazing amazing! Thank you so much for holiday of a lifetime. No one can say my name like Dylan! Tedie & Helen xx Dear Keri + Dylan, Thank you for the most amazing vacation ever! You two are such wonderful hosts. You think of everything and make it all seem effortless. Keri, the meals were just incredible. The ribs, sliders, risotto, beautiful salads - they were all delicious. The creme brûlée was particularly memorable. :) We loved our snorkel excursions and the hidden coves you all knew about. The kids loved waterskiing with Dylan too. Tyler will never forget catching his first shark either! :) Please look us up when you find yourselves wanting to check out the states. Mary Collins and Tyler-anne
February 2018
We are three reasonably well traveled couples who just finished a most extraordinary and delightful vacation, sailing with Slivochka through the British Virgin Islands. This week long cruise on the yacht Slivochka far exceeded our expectations making it one of our best vacations ever. The three most important factors in chartering a full-service yacht are the crew, the boat, and the itinerary. Beginning with the crew, they were outstanding. Prior to our arrival they had telephoned to discuss our plans. Upon arrival they warmly welcomed us on board Slivochka with cocktails and snacks. They were both so friendly and hospitable that by the end of our cruise they were a part of our family. Dylan was an extremely competent and knowledgeable captain, always finding sheltered anchorages for us to swim and snorkel. He also made all the arrangements for any shore excursions that we enjoyed. For anything that we wanted we simply had to ask Dylan. The meals were exquisite. She is a fantastic cook and each day’s offerings included fresh produce and salads, deliciously prepared grilled fish or meat and even some imaginatively created themed dinners. A special memory was when they joined us on Anegada for a lobster dinner in an outdoor restaurant under the full moon. They were such accommodating and congenial traveling companions who took such excellent care of us that we were sad to bid them farewell. The second consideration was the yacht Slivochka. This is a 59-foot sailing catamaran with extremely comfortable lodging for the guests. Each air-conditioned guest cabin included a walk around queen-size bed, and in-suite head and very adequate storage space. The main deck area was spacious with indoor and outdoor dining areas, and there was a comfortable reclining area next to the bridge. On board were kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling equipment and fishing gear for our use. The yacht was spotless and very well maintained. We had planned the itinerary with Dylan. This included stops at Norman Island, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, Jost Van Dyke and back to St. Thomas. In addition, we had many side excursions for snorkeling and exploring the beautiful British Virgin Islands. We have charted several boats in the past in the Virgin Islands but they all pale in comparison to sailing on Slivochka. We give them our highest recommendations and hope they will be our crew for any future excursions.
Dominique Charter: 28th April - 6th May 2018
"We just returned from an amazing week long private charter in the BVIs on the Slivochka with Dylan as our captain and Isabella as our first mate/chef. It was one of my favorite vacations ever and first ever chartered yacht experience. Captain Dylan worked with us in the planning stages to find out exactly what our interests were and charted the perfect itinerary for our week. He found the most awesome places to show us the amazing beauty of the BVIs. He gave us options throughout the trip and accommodated everything our group wanted to see and do. He guided us on snorkel and hike excursions and was a wonderful host. Isabella was equally knowledgeable and also made suggestions along the way of things to see and do. She also joined us snorkeling, but happens to be a trained dive master. She was the most gracious host, and made our week extremely comfortable. However, her gourmet cuisine was something we looked forward to each day. Her skills as a chef allowed us to dine as if we were at a 5 Star restaurant. She also consulted with us before the trip about our food preferences, and her menu for the week exceeded our expectations. I frankly don’t know how she was able to prepare what she did on board because each meal was simply amazing. She does so much behind the scenes that I don’t know when she slept. Together, they are the perfect team and made our week at sea the most memorable and outstanding vacation, that I will be booking our next charter with them. Thank you Captain Dylan and Bella for all that you did for us. We loved getting to know you and being on board Slivochka. "
6 - 12 June 2018
Dylan & Bella - So difficult to put into words exactly how FABULOUS the last few days have been! Captain man-Baby...you helped us have the time of our lives while keeping MOST of us from harming ourselves :) And Bella...you filled our bellies with the EXQUISITE cuisine and delicious cocktails. But more importantly, you filled our hearts with warm memories we will take with us and cherish forever. Thank you both so much for going ABOVE and BEYOND to make this best girls' trip we've taken yet! TX Happy Sails Kirstin, Erin, Kara, Jenny, Julie - The Texas Zeta Girls

Thank you so much for the most wonderful family vacation EVER. We love to travel and its not easy with our large family and variety of age groups! We appreciate so much your patience in teaching us how to ski and fixing snorkels and reeling in fishing lines. . . etc, etc. You made an especially big impression on our side. You have a new buddy for life. :) We also appreciate your help in arranging to meet up with our friend. It was great for us to see her! You took us to many beautiful places and you didn't murder us and drop our bodies at sea. So thanks for that. Isabella, you are a delight as is your cooking. Best painkillers around. We will spread the word. Thank you for being so sweet and gracious in the face of our chaos and mess. We would love to eat your delicious food daily. Much luck to you in your future!

Virgin Islands Charter June 12, 2019 Charter
We had an amazing time! The boat was very well appointed and perfectly accommodated our group. Dylan and Isabella were incredible. They were knowledgeable, interesting, professional and just fun to be around. Bella is an amazing chef and all of her food was delicious. We were all baffled by how she cooked such gourmet meals in such a small space. Dylan did an excellent job leading our dives and providing a fun and safe environment for all. This really is an incredible vacation for anyone. It is so relaxing, rejuvenating and a genuine break for day to day life. The meals were so delicious that one of the kids wanted to propose to Bella! The food was perfect. Bella did an amazing job working around the needs of someone with a nut allergy and a pescatarian. The meals were interested and beautifully presented. She was very mindful of our preference sheet. The yacht was beautiful. It was clean, well-maintained and well appointed. The provided toiletries were high end and very much appreciated. Everyone loved the Sun Bum sunscreen and it was soo nice not to bring all that along. The cabins were comfortable and the AC was great. We loved sitting on the upper deck on our sails. It would have been a bit nicer if there was a little more shade up there but it was not a issues. It was nicely situated next to the captain and it provided a nice opportunity to talk with Dylan and Bella while crossing. There were plenty of other shaded options on the boat. We loved the coffee machine, snacks and fruit that were always out and available. It was also super helpful to have the "lost & found" basket and the sunglasses basket. Great idea! The games and books were also a nice touch. Our diving was a highlight for our family. We did two dives that were very fun. Dylan and Bella worked seamlessly to get the equipment out, get us oriented and prepared for the dive. Dylan did a great job reviewing skills (especially for our kids), the dive plan and signals before were dove. We loved both the Indians Dive and the octopus wreck dive. The pace was a perfect balance of relaxing and active. We loved swimming, snorkeling, diving, reading, paddle boarding, playing games & hanging out. The cruising gave us the perfect amount of downtime between all the fun.

Dylan & Gi – Thank you for making the first voyage for our kiddos such a success! Jack & I have dreamed of introducing them to such a vacation, you’re patience, attention to all of the details, and special touches made it a perfect trip. Magdalene (9 years old) will forever remember the snorkelling, getting to touch a jelly fish, diving down to touch a rock, seeing a grand sea turtle, & of course her special friend “Rob” the conch  Capt. Dylan, your patience & guidance helped make all of these things possible. Jaxie (8 years old) loved sitting on the nets with the wind blowing on her face, snorkelling, tubing & of course the early morning chats with you both. Maverick (4 years) will always remember the swims in the “open seas”, his first tubing experience, searching for shells, and he will likely keep dreaming of Gi’s sweets for years to come! Truly, a wonderful, fabulous journey with you both. The pirate thanksgiving lunch was a terrific treat. Until next time, Amanda & Jack Ryan, Magdalene, Jaxie & Maverick

Dylan & Gi, Thank you so much for the amazing trip. Many memories were made on this most amazing boat, with amazing foor & great friends. So glad we all crossed paths. Looking to seeing your alls continued adventures. You all are the best. God Bless, Dennis & Lisa Stephens Dylan & Gi, What an amazing week. I must confess that memories of a charter 10 years ago really made me think that experience could never be matched. Wow, was I wrong. Not only did you all match it, you exceeded my expectations. If I could bottle up and market you all I think we could make millions! The smiles, the service the excellent food and your willingness to do whatever was asked made for an amazing trip. Dylan’s wise chores and very judicious guidance on where to go and what to do was always right on target. Both of you have such a friendly personality we fell in love with you both instantly. We plan on shouting your highest praises and recommending you & the Slivochka to anyone that will listen. Gi thanks for taking one for the team with Christopher! That’s one experience we won’t forget and will become part of our “vacation” stories. God Bless you both with rich lives and success in all you do. With much appreciation and thanks Matt & Lisa Bowman I can’t thank you enough for the incredible week I (personally had), as well as our whole group. It’s hard to think back and pick a favorite but if I was forced, simply sailing!! And of course having the atmosphere to reconnect with new and old friends. The both of out did yourselves. Dave & I are in the process of figuring out another time w/another group so we will see you in the future!!! Sincerely, Stacy Florence Thanks to the cocktail board outside. I don’t remember much, but apparently, according to Stacy’s Facebook posts, I’ve had a blast! Just kidding. I remember everything, every delicious meal, especially! You two are amazing people. Made for hospitality, for sure, but overall you are genuinely wonderful spirits. You’ve given me a lifetime of adventure, laughter, and memories in this short little week. (And Dylan, I still can’t believe you caught my hat!) Thank you!! Nicki Shorr-Maxson
27 December 2019

Dylan & Gi, What a great trip. We enjoyed every minute. The food was wonderful. I think the girls had 6 of the-best meals they’ve ever had. Can’t wait to do this again soon with you guys. Hope we weren’t too much trouble. Keep in touch. Steve & Judy Vermillion Thank you so much for such an amazing experience, we could not have asked for a better crew! Gi, your cooking was INCREDIBLE. It’s going to be so hard to go back to eating our subpar meals. We had an absolute blast staying up and playing endless amounts of card games, especially spoons. Willy T’s is a night we loved the most – the memories may be fuzzy, but unfortunately the videos and bruises aren’t. Dylan, thank you for being a great leader when it came to snorkelling and ass tattoos  Thank you Gi for introducing us to the Caipirinha, we will spend countless hours trying to recreate the recipe since you can’t share (along with the soy fillet sauce). It’s hard to pick a favorite island they were all our favorite – from dune buggies at Anegada to the caves at Norman. We will never forget this trip and we will absolutely be back soon. We cannot thank you guys enough for going above and beyond. Steve, Judy, Cat, Walker and Addie Vermillion, Amanda Erskine, Wade Cox and Jordan Esopa

Dylan & Gi, Thank you for a wonderful week of adventure. If we could Gi home with us to cook for us we would. All our meals were wonderful, breakfast, lunch & dinner! Dylan was a great captain & cool as a cucumber when the dingy stopped running and we had to row back to the boat. He was a great participant in the What Do You Meme game! Dylan was very flexible with our itinerary and had great suggestions. We tried to get them to let us stay on as part of the crew but unfortunately that would have required them to cancel the rest of their charters! We would definitely book another charter on Slivochka with Dylan & Gi. Greg, Susan, Kyle, Allison, Katie and Chad Hackenbracht, Paul Pettitt, Erin Roy

Captain Dylan and Chef Gi have an enthusiasm and passion for life on the water. With their easy going charm and love of hospitality, your trip aboard its sure to be that of a lifetime!

Dylan guides you to perfect bays and secret spots, pairing your expectations and his knowledge to make exploring the Islands all the more enjoyable. Nothing is too much for any of his guests, be that sun tanning on the flybridge with a cocktail in hand, or getting you involved in sailing Slivochka. Dylan grew up sailing the Indian and Atlantic Oceans with his family, totaling 20 000 NM over six years, having left his home of South Africa at age 6. Fully qualified and commercially endorsed as a MCA/RYA Yacht Master Offshore 200GT, he has a full STCW and is a certified PADI Dive Master.

Gi grew up in Mozambique, a country on the east coast of Africa, famous for its tropical beaches, fresh seafood and Portuguese influences. At 16 years old she began leading guests on private safari tours where she specialized in identifying birds and expanded on her knowledge and love of animals. Later on she would discover her interest in local and international cooking, learning from seasoned chefs operating within the Safari. In 2017 she made the decision to advance her skills by completing the Capital Culinary School Diploma in Professional Cookery, affording her the opportunity to return to Mozambique to delight guests with her refined culinary skills. She now looks forward to welcoming you aboard Slivochka and creating delicious meals for you and your friends and family.

Both Dylan and Gi enjoy families and children, and aim to maximize the fun and adventure in each charter, whilst providing a relaxed atmosphere for you to unwind. They great at creating a vibe and throwing a party, perfect for couples or those looking to visit in island style! They believe that attention to detail and personal touches make all the difference!

Dylan, Bella Thank you for amazing vacations! We enjoyed every minutes: Snorkeling, wake, knee bord, paddle, kayak, etc... Food was also delicious :) :) :) Big Thank you, Wirth Family
February Charter
Hi Kate and Jason, Finally we get to send you both a note of thanks for making our BVI experience beyond our expectation. We appreciated the attentive concern you professionally provided to both of us. Hope all is well, we have shared our photos with family and friends and continued to hi-light our captain and chef at every opportunity. You are an awesome couple. Again, many thanks and Big Hugs! Vince and Heather
The Lee Charter
My daughter said to me today, Dad you know when we were on board Dolphin Splash it felt like I was in a dream, it was like the Disney World cruise, but better! I can say that making my children happy also makes me delighted, so all of us really loved being with Jason and Kate. It worried me a little that my family and I were going to have strangers at every meal, but I was surprised (I bet it was their mega yacht experience), that at many meals they were nowhere to be seen, very smart, we all had our family bonding time, then they would magically appear and be serving wine. The first impression always impacts people the most, my wife and I were happily impressed with a crew in white uniform meeting us. We did not feel they had to wear their uniform, but my wife and I are superbly delighted we did have the best captain and chef team. It was little things they did that impressed my whole family. Every single aspect of this charter on board Dolphin Splash was magnificent, we are delighted we selected Dolphin Splash! The kids insist we get back with Jason and Kate, see you soon. The entire happy Lee Family!

DYLAN & KERI
Dylan and Keri, We had planned to do this unusual vacation for 5-7 years and we selected the best crew and catamaran, our children loved you guys. You shared so many of your stories about your lives and interacted with us all of the time. It was great to have you do this and make us feel so at home! We felt that you are an extended part of our family. We were comfortable and at home all the time! Dylan your great sense of humor – you challenged the kids and I to competitions, nice – it wasn’t a job it was something that you liked to do. You are very talented at what you do. You shared with us various tasks and gave us all mini lessons on sailing! Each and every meal was far superior to what we have imagined it to be, can we take Keri home with us? Please keep in touch. Dennis and Wendy
Dylan and Keri
This has, by far been the most incredible trip for our family that I could have imagined. Dylan and Keri had all 16 of our guests at every meal which was important to us, thank you for setting up a 8 guest bare boat for the others to sleep in. We have grown to love you! Thank you for taking such wonderful care of our large family. Dylan the children loved you. Spending our evenings sharing dinners together and just relaxing watching the fish or looking at the stars was exactly what we had hoped for. We will all go home with memories. The Adamsons.
17 - 24 February 2018
Dylan + Keri You have both been instrumental in giving us a fabulous vacation! You've gone above and beyond to make our time on Slivochka especially memorable. Keri's food was world class delicious, Keri-you seemed to anticipate our every need even before we knew it ourselves. Such as offering hot chocolate after coming back, a bit chilly, after snorkeling. And bringing up blankets at night to the group on the sky bridge because we may become chilly. Dylan-you kept us safe in the wind and the rainstorms. You were so patient with those who had less snorkeling experience and led us on the great snorkeling paddle board caravan with your strong & capable swimming prowess. You miraculously saved Paul's hearing aids, coming to their rescue with the crevice of the rocks at "The Indians" snorkeling location. We cannot imagine a more gracious and capable crew, and we have been blessed. Thank you for fond memories that will last a lifetime! P.S. sorry about sinking the floating island... Fondly - Paula & Gary Gillette Richard + Winnie Ricker Eileen & Tom B Donna Hargett
25 Feb - 3 March 2018
Dear Keri and Dylan, Our little piece of heaven in The BVI and you two made it possible! We're afraid that all other vacations will pale in comparison to this fantastic week. It was the perfect storm - luxury boat, 5 star cuisine, gorgeous weather, great friends and your wonderful care and consideration. you both made the trip - you rock - you're awesome. we wish you much success and happiness and good fortune in all of your future endeavours. Much love, and thank you both so very much - Cathy + Mike Corbett Thank you, thank you, thank you! You both went above & beyond, you exceeded our expectations! Thank you for making my St. David's Day memorable. Always welcomes in our "neck of the wods" Cilla + Bill Lannan Amazing, amazing amazing! Thank you so much for holiday of a lifetime. No one can say my name like Dylan! Tedie & Helen xx Dear Keri + Dylan, Thank you for the most amazing vacation ever! You two are such wonderful hosts. You think of everything and make it all seem effortless. Keri, the meals were just incredible. The ribs, sliders, risotto, beautiful salads - they were all delicious. The creme brûlée was particularly memorable. :) We loved our snorkel excursions and the hidden coves you all knew about. The kids loved waterskiing with Dylan too. Tyler will never forget catching his first shark either! :) Please look us up when you find yourselves wanting to check out the states. Mary Collins and Tyler-anne
February 2018
We are three reasonably well traveled couples who just finished a most extraordinary and delightful vacation, sailing with Slivochka through the British Virgin Islands. This week long cruise on the yacht Slivochka far exceeded our expectations making it one of our best vacations ever. The three most important factors in chartering a full-service yacht are the crew, the boat, and the itinerary. Beginning with the crew, they were outstanding. Prior to our arrival they had telephoned to discuss our plans. Upon arrival they warmly welcomed us on board Slivochka with cocktails and snacks. They were both so friendly and hospitable that by the end of our cruise they were a part of our family. Dylan was an extremely competent and knowledgeable captain, always finding sheltered anchorages for us to swim and snorkel. He also made all the arrangements for any shore excursions that we enjoyed. For anything that we wanted we simply had to ask Dylan. The meals were exquisite. She is a fantastic cook and each day’s offerings included fresh produce and salads, deliciously prepared grilled fish or meat and even some imaginatively created themed dinners. A special memory was when they joined us on Anegada for a lobster dinner in an outdoor restaurant under the full moon. They were such accommodating and congenial traveling companions who took such excellent care of us that we were sad to bid them farewell. The second consideration was the yacht Slivochka. This is a 59-foot sailing catamaran with extremely comfortable lodging for the guests. Each air-conditioned guest cabin included a walk around queen-size bed, and in-suite head and very adequate storage space. The main deck area was spacious with indoor and outdoor dining areas, and there was a comfortable reclining area next to the bridge. On board were kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling equipment and fishing gear for our use. The yacht was spotless and very well maintained. We had planned the itinerary with Dylan. This included stops at Norman Island, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, Jost Van Dyke and back to St. Thomas. In addition, we had many side excursions for snorkeling and exploring the beautiful British Virgin Islands. We have charted several boats in the past in the Virgin Islands but they all pale in comparison to sailing on Slivochka. We give them our highest recommendations and hope they will be our crew for any future excursions.
Dominique Charter: 28th April - 6th May 2018
"We just returned from an amazing week long private charter in the BVIs on the Slivochka with Dylan as our captain and Isabella as our first mate/chef. It was one of my favorite vacations ever and first ever chartered yacht experience. Captain Dylan worked with us in the planning stages to find out exactly what our interests were and charted the perfect itinerary for our week. He found the most awesome places to show us the amazing beauty of the BVIs. He gave us options throughout the trip and accommodated everything our group wanted to see and do. He guided us on snorkel and hike excursions and was a wonderful host. Isabella was equally knowledgeable and also made suggestions along the way of things to see and do. She also joined us snorkeling, but happens to be a trained dive master. She was the most gracious host, and made our week extremely comfortable. However, her gourmet cuisine was something we looked forward to each day. Her skills as a chef allowed us to dine as if we were at a 5 Star restaurant. She also consulted with us before the trip about our food preferences, and her menu for the week exceeded our expectations. I frankly don’t know how she was able to prepare what she did on board because each meal was simply amazing. She does so much behind the scenes that I don’t know when she slept. Together, they are the perfect team and made our week at sea the most memorable and outstanding vacation, that I will be booking our next charter with them. Thank you Captain Dylan and Bella for all that you did for us. We loved getting to know you and being on board Slivochka. "
6 - 12 June 2018
Dylan & Bella - So difficult to put into words exactly how FABULOUS the last few days have been! Captain man-Baby...you helped us have the time of our lives while keeping MOST of us from harming ourselves :) And Bella...you filled our bellies with the EXQUISITE cuisine and delicious cocktails. But more importantly, you filled our hearts with warm memories we will take with us and cherish forever. Thank you both so much for going ABOVE and BEYOND to make this best girls' trip we've taken yet! TX Happy Sails Kirstin, Erin, Kara, Jenny, Julie - The Texas Zeta Girls

After Charter Survey What was your first impression of the yacht? = Immaculate Was advertised equipment onboard and in good condition? - Yes Did the skipper/hostess make you feel welcome and comfortable onboard? - Yes Did you feel free to choose activities? - Absolutely Please provide specific comments regarding your skipper and hostess. - They were both wonderful! We planned out where we would go, dive etc. with Dylan. Isabella was an amazing cook! She took us snorkeling and made sure we were all together. This was our 3rd time doing this and our best trip by far. Were the meals and beverages as you expected? - Yes, even better! The food and wine were amazing. They waited on us and took care of our boys when they were hungry in between meals. If you made any special requests were they met? - Yes. Was this your first visit to the BVI? - No, 3rd by boat Would you recommend this yacht for a charter vacation? - Absolutely
Virgin Islands Charter June 12, 2019 Charter
We had an amazing time! The boat was very well appointed and perfectly accommodated our group. Dylan and Isabella were incredible. They were knowledgeable, interesting, professional and just fun to be around. Bella is an amazing chef and all of her food was delicious. We were all baffled by how she cooked such gourmet meals in such a small space. Dylan did an excellent job leading our dives and providing a fun and safe environment for all. This really is an incredible vacation for anyone. It is so relaxing, rejuvenating and a genuine break for day to day life. The meals were so delicious that one of the kids wanted to propose to Bella! The food was perfect. Bella did an amazing job working around the needs of someone with a nut allergy and a pescatarian. The meals were interested and beautifully presented. She was very mindful of our preference sheet. The yacht was beautiful. It was clean, well-maintained and well appointed. The provided toiletries were high end and very much appreciated. Everyone loved the Sun Bum sunscreen and it was soo nice not to bring all that along. The cabins were comfortable and the AC was great. We loved sitting on the upper deck on our sails. It would have been a bit nicer if there was a little more shade up there but it was not a issues. It was nicely situated next to the captain and it provided a nice opportunity to talk with Dylan and Bella while crossing. There were plenty of other shaded options on the boat. We loved the coffee machine, snacks and fruit that were always out and available. It was also super helpful to have the "lost & found" basket and the sunglasses basket. Great idea! The games and books were also a nice touch. Our diving was a highlight for our family. We did two dives that were very fun. Dylan and Bella worked seamlessly to get the equipment out, get us oriented and prepared for the dive. Dylan did a great job reviewing skills (especially for our kids), the dive plan and signals before were dove. We loved both the Indians Dive and the octopus wreck dive. The pace was a perfect balance of relaxing and active. We loved swimming, snorkeling, diving, reading, paddle boarding, playing games & hanging out. The cruising gave us the perfect amount of downtime between all the fun.

Dylan & Gi – Thank you for making the first voyage for our kiddos such a success! Jack & I have dreamed of introducing them to such a vacation, you’re patience, attention to all of the details, and special touches made it a perfect trip. Magdalene (9 years old) will forever remember the snorkelling, getting to touch a jelly fish, diving down to touch a rock, seeing a grand sea turtle, & of course her special friend “Rob” the conch  Capt. Dylan, your patience & guidance helped make all of these things possible. Jaxie (8 years old) loved sitting on the nets with the wind blowing on her face, snorkelling, tubing & of course the early morning chats with you both. Maverick (4 years) will always remember the swims in the “open seas”, his first tubing experience, searching for shells, and he will likely keep dreaming of Gi’s sweets for years to come! Truly, a wonderful, fabulous journey with you both. The pirate thanksgiving lunch was a terrific treat. Until next time, Amanda & Jack Ryan, Magdalene, Jaxie & Maverick

Dylan & Gi, Thank you so much for the amazing trip. Many memories were made on this most amazing boat, with amazing foor & great friends. So glad we all crossed paths. Looking to seeing your alls continued adventures. You all are the best. God Bless, Dennis & Lisa Stephens Dylan & Gi, What an amazing week. I must confess that memories of a charter 10 years ago really made me think that experience could never be matched. Wow, was I wrong. Not only did you all match it, you exceeded my expectations. If I could bottle up and market you all I think we could make millions! The smiles, the service the excellent food and your willingness to do whatever was asked made for an amazing trip. Dylan’s wise chores and very judicious guidance on where to go and what to do was always right on target. Both of you have such a friendly personality we fell in love with you both instantly. We plan on shouting your highest praises and recommending you & the Slivochka to anyone that will listen. Gi thanks for taking one for the team with Christopher! That’s one experience we won’t forget and will become part of our “vacation” stories. God Bless you both with rich lives and success in all you do. With much appreciation and thanks Matt & Lisa Bowman I can’t thank you enough for the incredible week I (personally had), as well as our whole group. It’s hard to think back and pick a favorite but if I was forced, simply sailing!! And of course having the atmosphere to reconnect with new and old friends. The both of out did yourselves. Dave & I are in the process of figuring out another time w/another group so we will see you in the future!!! Sincerely, Stacy Florence Thanks to the cocktail board outside. I don’t remember much, but apparently, according to Stacy’s Facebook posts, I’ve had a blast! Just kidding. I remember everything, every delicious meal, especially! You two are amazing people. Made for hospitality, for sure, but overall you are genuinely wonderful spirits. You’ve given me a lifetime of adventure, laughter, and memories in this short little week. (And Dylan, I still can’t believe you caught my hat!) Thank you!! Nicki Shorr-Maxson

Dylan and Gi Simply Amazing! Having done this trip 10 years ago with our family as well, we thought we knew what to expect/ The two of you made this trip truly exceed all expectations. From knowledge of the world, the excellent food, exceptional service, patience, nothing too much to ask for, making sure we slept in the smoothest and most beautiful bays…I could go on and on. Thank you both for treating our family to a trip of a lifetime with special memories! We have already recommended to several friends! Warmest personal regards, Your favorite Texans!

Dylan & Gi, What a great trip. We enjoyed every minute. The food was wonderful. I think the girls had 6 of the-best meals they’ve ever had. Can’t wait to do this again soon with you guys. Hope we weren’t too much trouble. Keep in touch. Steve & Judy Vermillion Thank you so much for such an amazing experience, we could not have asked for a better crew! Gi, your cooking was INCREDIBLE. It’s going to be so hard to go back to eating our subpar meals. We had an absolute blast staying up and playing endless amounts of card games, especially spoons. Willy T’s is a night we loved the most – the memories may be fuzzy, but unfortunately the videos and bruises aren’t. Dylan, thank you for being a great leader when it came to snorkelling and ass tattoos  Thank you Gi for introducing us to the Caipirinha, we will spend countless hours trying to recreate the recipe since you can’t share (along with the soy fillet sauce). It’s hard to pick a favorite island they were all our favorite – from dune buggies at Anegada to the caves at Norman. We will never forget this trip and we will absolutely be back soon. We cannot thank you guys enough for going above and beyond. Steve, Judy, Cat, Walker and Addie Vermillion, Amanda Erskine, Wade Cox and Jordan Esopa

Dylan & Gi (smiley) Thank you for an ALL-AMAZING trip. It exceeded our expectations. We appreciated your professionalism and easy going personalities.

Dylan & Gi, Thank you for a wonderful week of adventure. If we could Gi home with us to cook for us we would. All our meals were wonderful, breakfast, lunch & dinner! Dylan was a great captain & cool as a cucumber when the dingy stopped running and we had to row back to the boat. He was a great participant in the What Do You Meme game! Dylan was very flexible with our itinerary and had great suggestions. We tried to get them to let us stay on as part of the crew but unfortunately that would have required them to cancel the rest of their charters! We would definitely book another charter on Slivochka with Dylan & Gi. Greg, Susan, Kyle, Allison, Katie and Chad Hackenbracht, Paul Pettitt, Erin Roy
