Once again, Mandy and WLMS hit a home run! We had a great family trip on Oceana, a great boat for 6 people. Umbi and Judith could not have been a better crew! Judith is an excellent chef and we could not have asked for a better week of dining. We loved everything she prepared. Umbi was a great and attentive captain that delivered on some great spots in the BVIs that we had not visited on previous trips. Oceana was a great 48' cat with lots of fantastic upgrades. We would recommend the Cat and the Crew to anyone!! Chartering a Cat in the BVIs is the best trip we have ever done! If you are looking to relax and see some incredible islands, sailing in the BVIs is the best you can find. Great value! We all give it 5 stars!! And Mandy Walker at WLMS makes it so easy! And she knows the islands well!!
Mandy and WLMS helped steer us to the perfect boat and crew for our recent BVI adventure. Our catamaran “The Pursuit” along with Cap’n Ron, Katy, and Chef Val could not have been better for our group of 5 retired couples. Truly great folks and fun to be with. Mandy was there at every step to help guide us through the process and answered all of our questions along the way. She even coordinated her driver in St. Thomas to help get us around the island for the days we stayed in advance of the sail. Mandy’s knowledge, professionalism, and care for her clients was key to our enjoyment and we will not hesitate to work through her again for our next trip.
We have had the pleasure of working with Mandy and Rory now on 2 occasions. When we decided it was time to arrange another adventure there was no hesitation in who we would entrust to find and plan the perfect charter. They are so efficient, responsive and professional they make the process from start to finish both fun and informative. These ladies know the business, the locales, the boats, crews and everything that will leave you feeling 100% confident the trip will be flawless. We have now visited the BVI and Greece with them so their expertise and knowledge are wide reaching. I cannot recommend them enough and they will be our go to for the next trip without question...Croatia and Turkey high on the list! Thanks WLMS:) See you soon.
As a travel agent I can easily say that Mandy is a dream to work with (and trust me I can't say this about everyone). She is always quick to respond with a phone call, text or email. We found the perfect boat for my clients, the Midnight Moon. Not only did they love the boat but they loved the crew just as much. They had so much fun in the Bahamas. I can't wait to work with Mandy on another trip. She is truly such a nice, genuine person and is on top of everything.
Wow! Mandy with WLMS is fantastic! We just took the best vacation of our lives on the Midnight Moon through the Bahamas. It could not have been better. Thank you so much!!
One of our best vacations ever! This was exactly the relaxing trip we needed. Max and Whitey, our incredible crew, were an essential part of that. So experienced, knowledgeable and talented, they were wonderful company and peerless hosts. If you are ever lucky enough to book a cruise on the Nutmeg with them, don’t miss your chance. We all still miss Max’s delicious meals and Whitey’s jokes! Planning and then taking this trip in the midst of the Omicron wave of the pandemic was confusing and nerve wracking! If not for Mandy Walker, our cruise broker, Max, and Whitey, it never would have happened. They kept us up to date on changing restrictions and offered sound advice on how to navigate testing requirements. We had never done a private cruise before and lucked out in finding Mandy. She worked hard to understand us and our needs and then recommended a crew and boat that were a perfect fit for us. I talked with a number of yacht brokers before working with Mandy and none were as thorough and professional as she. The BVI certainly delivered for us with perfect weather and amazing sunsets. But Mandy, Max and Whitey made this a trip we will never forget.
Our experience working with Mandy was absolute perfection. Our charter was originally scheduled to set sail in March of 2020 but was suddenly cancelled due to Covid. During that crazy time of uncertainty, Mandy kept in very close contact with us regarding the future of our charter and was able to get us re-scheduled for 2021 on an incredible boat with a top notch crew. From the very first phone call to the day of the charter 18 months later, every question we had was answered quickly. We felt like she had a genuine interest in helping to make our vacation one to remember, which it most definitely was.
Mandy Walker did a fabulous job planning and executing our family vacation to the BVI's. The boat that she recommended fit our needs perfectly and the crew could not have been better. She made everything so easy. We had a wonderful time. Thank you Mandy!!
Working with Mandy at WLMS Charters is perfection. My journey with her started 4 years ago. I had been looking at houses to rent after going on a cruise to Tortola and while searching some boats came up. Sailing peaked my interest because I had done a sailing trip when I was younger. Behind the inquiry was Mandy. Just in email I knew she was the right person to pick the right boat and crew for a trip with my then 4 year old and almost 10 year old. We picked a crew and boat and then the hurricanes hit. She stood by replying to emails instantly and assuring us we could either delay our trip or be refunded. I later found out she was going through something personal and I would have never known because of her professionalism through it all. We decided to delay after shuffling boats and a new crew and charter 1 happened. Then charter 2 and just 3 days off the boat from charter 3. The most recent charter we had another family so a larger boat and new crew were in order and she once again guided us to perfection. She truly listens and knows the industry very well. I would charter a boat without knowing anything about it with her recommendation anyday. I can not say enough how easy Mandy is to work with and how thorough she is . 3 years and 3 charters later with Mandy guiding us. Time for charter 4!
Working with Mandy to book our dream vacation was flawless. Mandy is responsive, intuitive, organized, and extremely helpful in finding the best charter for your needs. After reviewing the different options she sent us, we ended up on Playtime. We had an incredible time sailing through the BVIs and couldn't have been happier. Our Captains, Kelsey and Tyler, were absolutely wonderful and made this trip even better than we thought possible. Thank you Mandy for making our dreams come true!
