A few of the hundreds of quest comments this year!

Dear Lynn and Mark

“In all ways, a perfect voyage – boat, crew, routes, harbours, food, company, the islands, weather, more food – you have given us a spectacular gift, and we have been happy in your care.

Back next year!”  New York USA

“This week has fulfilled – and exceeded – our dreams of a perfect holiday in the Caribbean. The most wonderful, relaxed, pampered and altogether far-too-short few days! Mark, you astounded us with your creative culinary skills and Lynn, your organisation and sailing.

Thanks, both of you.”
Melbourne Australia  December 2010 USVI/BVI

Dear John,

This week has been extraordinary. As you know, cruising the Maine coast, was a long held dream of ours. Being aboard Tivoli certainly exceeded expectations, and expectations were high.

Tivoli, itself, is a marvel. So luxuriously comfortable, yet with its steel hull, magnificiently safe and stable over high seas, a real plus for the week kneed !

Your crew is a well chosen group, all kind and polite, but so much more; there combined talents greatly enhanced out time aboard. From a ready hand or smile, to the delicious meals, we where beautifully served throughout our adventure. Thank you for making our dream come so alive !  Many memories were made onboard, sure to bring happy recounting in the weeks and months ahead.

With great appreciation !

Absolutely fantastic trip!  All 6 members of our group loved it!  Especially going  to Anegada and walking that deserted beach and drinks at the Cattle Wreck bar, driving the island, and a fantastic lobster dinner on our last night.  We had planned the whole itinerary, and Whiitey through that in our last day.  The girls had never been to Anegada with Action Quest, so it

We can’t say enough about the crew. Their sensitivity to our needs (and wants!) was excellent! Their wealth of knowledge of all aspects of True North and the BVI’s and diving truly made me, the Mom, feel that my family and my daughters’ friends were in an extremely safe environment, without being overwhelmed with too many details. It was such a great environment to be adventurous and have a “go for it” time! Please keep us posted on the plans for Belize. We plan to put that on our calendars!

None! Well done!  The Virgin Islands, June, 2010

It was the most fabulous trip!!!   The crew is amazing, and I wish I was there right now.   There was nothing left undone or unattended to....we loved every minute!

In regard to MATAU and the crew we couldn’t have asked for a better combination. The Catamaran was very spacious with great outdoor space and well appointed indoor spaces. Everyone had the opportunity to either find their own place to read and relax or be part of the group singing and having fun. There were also several spots for dining and that was nice to be able to change the venue. We are an active family and MATAU had all the water sports equipment we could ever need and more.
The real point of differentiation was the crew. All I can say is Wow! They were unbelievable and so much fun to be with. The service was five star from the time we stepped on the boat until we left. Virginia and her crew always had options for us each day depending how we felt. She organized hikes, amazing snorkeling trips, water skiing, tubing and always found beautiful spots to anchor and spend the night. Chris, the Chef was simply amazing. Each meal was a much anticipated treat that we all looked forward to and appreciated greatly.

Alice was so attentive to all of our needs and our kids really enjoyed her. Jamie made the trip so special as he took us on some great adventures and educated us on the islands, fish, history etc. He was always there to take us where we wanted to go and had fun doing it. I can’t say enough about the experience but when I asked each of our family members if they would like to charter MATAU again or try another yacht, each person said, “MATAU with the same crew.” I think that says it all.

Caribbean March 2010


Just so you know, I think Mark, Dana, Janet and I would all agree that this year's time on the OCEANS SEVEN SQUARED  was the best of our three trips together on the OSS, and Janet and I have been saying that it was possibly the best vacation experience of our lives.

P.S. And I would add that sailing from Trapani to Marettimo on a close reach in 30+ knots of apparent wind had me grinning from ear to ear - it just doesn't get much better than that.
This was our third trip on OCEANS SEVEN SQUARED . After the first we thought our subsequent experiences would be hard to match that first one. But both the 2nd and 3rd have been magnificent. We are, and always will be, tremendously thankful that we were fortunate to navigate stunningly beautiful islands with the equally impressive talents, hospitality, competence and care that Ross, Nikki, Bridget and Gareth provided. Another amazingly great experience for us.
