Darrel and Jenn,
Our week aboard Sea Boss with the best Captain Darrel and the great Jenn in the galley will not be forgotten. So many spectacular memories of FOOD, fish, haunted houses, every island, bubblin pools and telestrations laughs.
Our great thanks, Wendy
Thank you for an amazing week. Even though you may not remember our names next week (!!) we will certainly remember yours. "Doll Head" had lots of fun with "Derrek", even though you wanted to shave her head.

Jenn and Darrel,
Third trip and each one gets better. Islands don't change so it's the crew that makes it so. Loved every second!!!
Guy and Maria
I am writing with a heavy heart as we are leaving after fifteen glorious days in my favourite place on earth!! Not sure what to expect after two hurricanes in 2017, we arrived to find lots of life in these British Virgin Islands. The green has come back with the newness of spring and the spirit of the locals has returned along with it. As there is some slow growth to rebuild some things, other are completely up and running! Our vacation isn't made up of buildings, but of building new memories and enjoying every second of the beauty of these islands and our friendships. Darrel and Jenn, you two are absolutely the most precious friends/family we could ever wish for! You make our trip impeccable year after year. Thank you is so small in comparison to what we feel! Sea Boss is a perfect yacht and it has your hearts on every square inch. We love you both.
Until next year, Leo and Kathy
How do I begin to describe a week that will forever remain in my heart? Although I have been to the BVI on multiple trips, this experience by far topped them all. Our dear friends, graciously included us in on this secret! Just six weeks from getting marries, we see this as a pre-honeymoon with 4 special people, Leo and Kathy- old friends and Darrel and Jenn- new friends! The hospitality Darrel and Jenn provided was untouched! The food that nourished us by Jenn and the stories that made us laugh to the bottom of our belly by Darrel will be in my daily thoughts until next time. We WILL be back next year with our children to share this slice of heaven. We love you Leo and Kathy for sharing Darrel and Jenn. Darrel and Jenn we love you for sharing your home!
Much love, Mike and Addie
Darrel and Jenn,
What a wonderful trip... from beginning to end, we loved every minute and we learned a little along the way- "you can't walk the walk if you can't snorkel talk" :-)
Thank you, Holly and Scott
The two of you are an absolute treat! We have loved getting to know you. Thank you for the stories, the AMAZING food and for the memories we will forever cherish.
See you next year! Blake and Jen
Darrel and Jenn,
Thank you guys for an amazing trip! You are the host and hostess with the mostess! Everything was amazing including Darrel's stories and his seamanship to Jenn's delicious cooking. Thank you for making our trip so memorable- especially Mark's birthday!! We never want to see another cookie though- lol. Hope to see you again on another trip!!!
Mark and Cathy
Darrel and Jenn,
We had the most incredible time on Sea Boss! You guys were so amazing! The meals were fantastic, the snorkeling was great, the conversations were heart warming and the boating was fun! We really didn’t know what to expect to see and do prior to arriving on this trip because of the devastation that was caused to the islands by hurricane Irma. We had been here once before 6 years ago on a bare boat charter with family and had a great time. Some of our favorite places that we remembered were now gone but Darrel came up with other suggestions that were amazing. TheSoggy Dollar Bar and the Pirates restaurant were back up and running, which we were happy to hear and visiting them again was wonderful.The Super Bowl party on the beach at Leverick Bay was truly a one-of- a-kind experience! Partying with 200 other boaters was such a blast. We also loved visiting Oil Nut Bay resort and spending time at their pool and beach. Lunch there was superb and the staff was friendly. The snorkeling at Mountain Point will always be one of our favorite experiences. We loved buying gifts for our grandkids at Nanny Cay! We loved hearing stories about your boating relief efforts after hurricane Irma. What you guys did for the BVI community was extraordinary and selfless. Your passion for the islands and its people is evident and our hope is that others get to experience it too! The award given to Sea Boss and her crew by the South Florida Marine Industries for humanitarian relief is well deserved!
Thanks again for making our pre-valentine vacation very special! We are definitely going to comeback again with our kids and grandkids before Christmas!
XOXO Amira and Mike
Darrel and Jenn,
Thank- you for creating an environment that immediately us into a relaxing vacation mode. The food and the company were wonderful. We leave with the fondest memories.
Best, Lisa and Kerry
Thank you so much for the wonderful week on Sea Boss. The food was amazing (especially with the added gluten-free challenge). And the late night grilled cheese! The company was great- how we will ever play Tellustrations without you two, I don't know! Terrific, relaxing week!
Thank you, Roban and Douglas
Thanks so much for the wonderful week- you made a great first impression when you went snorkelling on the first day when my sunglasses flew overboard. I totally appreciate that as they were brand new. This was our first time on a charter boat and we will be back! Thanks, too for the snorkelling advice. I'll try to remember that the answer is ALWAYS yes. Jenn, I tried so many things foodwise that I wouldn't normally try so thanks for that - delicious!
Jack and Mary Jean
Jenn and Darrel,
After a very stressful and busy year, we were looking forward to our time on the Sea Boss more than ever.
We were hoping to show our kids the wonders and the beauty of the BVI, but Hurricane Irma and Maria had other plans. As disappointed as we were, we were thrilled to be able to explore the Exumas in the Bahamas! What an amazing place! The BVI will always have our hearts but the Exumas is a close second.
Thank you for the relaxation, fun, food and laughter, we can’t thank you ENOUGH!!
-Swimming with nurse sharks.
-Urgent care on Christmas for stitches!
-Isabel (4yrs old)- yeah she’s real “I’m allergic to salad”
-For you both!
And we will see you soon!
Dear Darrel and Jenn,
Thank you just doesn't seem enough for making the trip that we hoped would happen- happen! On the heels of the devastation from Irma and Maria and the amazing humanitarian work the two of you did aboard Sea Boss... You hosted Patty and I for our 30th wedding anniversary.
Jenn, you were such a treat. Nothing beats waking to the sounds of you in the kitchen and the smell of another amazing breakfast. You faced your fears and tackled the eggs benedict on day 1... Both Patty's and your personal favourite. (Jenn's disclaimer- "whether Kraft Dinner or Eggs Benedict- I am SO nervous to make a guests all time favourite meal, even if I've made it a hundred times") Then meal after meal, just nailed it: bolognese, mahi reubens, pulled pork and fish tacos, salmon fillet.. And we will never forget the dumbest thing we said on the charter to you "Uh, Jenn.. We think we're gonna skip or share some desserts"... No way!
And Captain Darrel.. Right off the bat he says to Patty "So Patty, there are two things I have to tell you about swimming in the Bahamas. 1. There's a strong current." She says "I don't care about that. But is the 2nd thing is there are sharks?" "Yup!" But then somehow Darrel coached and persuaded Patty to actually swim with them and touch them! Followed shortly by urging her and helping her swim under the jagged coral and experience the Thunderball Grotto. That's Darrel, confident and all knowing (just ask him).
But by far our highlight aboard Sea Boss for the second time, was our renewal. The look on Patty's face as we came out of the Bubbling Pond to see the breathtakingly gorgeous alter Jenn and Darrel had built with fresh flowers, white ribbons, rocks in a heart, and a pearl in a sand filled shell for our 30!!! Quite simply a moment we will remember for the rest of our lives! Darrel and Jenn, you are both amazing and will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Until next time,
Patty and Bill
Darrel and Jenn
Our 1st charter was fabulous, thanks to you two! We are so grateful we could re-locate to the Bahamas after Irma and Maria, so that our honeymoon could go as planned! This was truly the trip of a lifetime and the best one we've been on! We were in the BEST hands!

Love Katherine and Nick
My wife and I had the opportunity to spend several days on Sea Boss this past fall and our experience blew away our expectations! We arrived in St. Thomas and were met at the airport by Sea Boss captain, Darrel Hearne, who had a car waiting for us. We headed to Yacht Haven Grand Marina where Sea Boss was docked, and were met by Jenn, our wonderful Chef. After a delicious lunch (exceptional food would be the theme throughout our stay), we were on our way to lovely Peter Island. During the trip, we enjoyed the excellent ride of the Horizon 60 catamaran and became acquainted with the various lounging areas aboard. The captain anchored us in a discrete but protected area of the bay, and after some delightful snorkelling, we spent a relaxing afternoon ashore at Peter Island where we managed to squeeze in a little shopping. We returned to Sea Boss for a 4 course dinner and spent a peaceful night aboard. The following day, after an amazing breakfast, we cruised to Scrub Island, enjoying the comfortable and quiet ride of the catamaran. In what seemed like no time, we anchored in a secluded but well protected spot just west of the Scrub. The very experienced, captain Darrel, again used his local knowledge to place us in the perfect spot! We enjoyed time in Scrub Island’s 2 level pool before returning to the boat to enjoy the water toys. Later we took the very fast dingy for a tour of the island before returning to the boat for yet another wonderful meal while enjoying the company of the captain Darrel and chef Jenn!The following morning we had to return to St Thomas but even that trip was memorable. Darrel used his rather extensive knowledge of the islands to give us a waterfront tour, including interesting historical facts. It was a lovely way to spend the day.Overall we could not have picked a better boat for the trip. Captain Darrel was professional and knowledgeable, Chef Jenn prepared amazing meals, snacks and boat drinks, and the accommodations were perfect. They were the very best of hosts! The master stateroom rivals what you would find on a 100’ yacht, and the stability of the catamaran while anchored is unbeatable. Needless to say, we have already booked a week this summer so the family can experience Sea Boss!

"What a wonderful time we had yesterday! My husband and I, along with our two friends, spent the day on Sea Boss, while visiting the BVI’s. We met Darryl and Jenn at the marina in the morning and they helped us escape to a beautiful and peaceful wonderland for most of the day. We first went to a beautiful cove where we enjoyed beautiful scenery. We then went to Peter Island. The ladies spent valuable time at the spa and the men relaxed on the beach and explored the grounds of the resort. Darryl and Jenn were very gracious and were the perfect hosts. Jenn prepared breakfast goodies and then, on our return, brought out even more delectable treats. Darryl was knowledgeable of the area and was able to provide facts and historic tidbits about many of the neighboring islands.We really enjoyed our day on Sea Boss! What an exquisite vessel! It was absolutely the best part of our trip!Thank you
Kathy and Audley
Darrel and Jenn, Thank you so much for creating such a special and memorable experience for M, the kids and I. Our expectations were blown away with every aspect of the trip. From the comfort of Sea Boss to a great itinerary, to Darrel's question each morning ("So, what do you want to do today?") to Jenn's phenomenal cooking, and attention to every detail by both of you. J and L had a great time and a well deserved break before their senior year in college. Gabriel tested every angle of his bed during his 20 hr/day koala style sleep and "nap" sessions, M fell in love with boating and staying overnight at the beautiful and calm coves that you found for us. Form me, it was a way of experiencing the BVI as I never had before, and simply loved it. I also came out of the trip with a few change orders for our new boat :-) I hope we will see you again soon and thanks for this amazing experience!
Every single second exceeded our expectations! Not only do you have a beautiful yacht but combined with such a knowledgeable and experienced crew makes for an unforgettable trip. Jenn- your food was simply amazing and you are absolutely adorable! Darrel- it was great meeting and getting to know you. You added so much more to our experience. The moment you picked us up we knew it was going to be a fabulous adventure!!! You can bet we won't just "talk" about coming back!!
