Thanks for another great week aboard Akasha! Every year it is even more fun and relaxing than before. It was so much fun getting to know the newest crew of the Akasha! Love and happiness to you all! Xoxo Paige & Sean
Thanks to all. Our 4th week on Akasha. As always our favourite family trip of the year! West Indies was new. Probably the best diving and snorkelling…. Still a BVI guy…. Capt Harvey/Cara/Tiago/Priya were outstanding. Really looking forward to the next week. Love Mike.
Thank you for an amazing trip! This is our favourite family trip we take, and we look forward to it every year! Thank you Captain Harvey for the wonderful sails and picturesque destinations. Thank you Cara for the outstanding food and presentations. I can’t forget to say thanks to Tiago and Priya for the great talks we had ‘oftenly’ and allowing me to write ‘love notes’ with bananas! Awesome trip! Love Chris Simpson. PS Love that hot sauce.
Clearly we are big fans of this amazing boat/trip, this being our third year! The islands were new to all of us this time and Harvey navigated through them all (the mall J) like a pro. Cara’s cooking was superb and I loved her descriptions every day. Tiago showed us his excellent snorkelling/swimming skills and Priya left us touching little love notes each night which was so nice. Chris and I have kept our notes from each Akasha trip and we keep them in our bedside drawer. Overall my favourite part was the last night when we had dinner with the crew at Sugar Beach and played the bowl game on the boat, so much fun bonding with this amazing crew! Don’t forget to scooch the gooch and dream to dream J Love always Meghan
Thank you so much for another great family trip! We had such a great time with the new crew and loved the new destination. Harvey took such good care of our family and running the boat. He is also a funny chap and made us laugh often. Cara, thank you for the fabulous meals. Priya and Tiago so sweet, really enjoyed both of you and thank you for all the hard work taking care of us. Love, health, happiness to you all. Xoxo Robin
Dear Harvey Cara Priya and Tiago
What an amazing trip. It was such a great experience. Thanks to Cara we got to eat the best food. Thanks to Harvey to getting us to island to island safe. Thanks P for being so sweet with your notes chocolates and keeping us tipsy. Thanks for t for taking us out on the water every day and pointing out cool fish.
It was fun discovering the Grenadines together, something we will never forget. The last night was so fun at dinner and the back of the boat having every shot in the book and playing games. Thank you so much because of you this is one of the best trips we ever had! Good luck to all
Veronica and Kelly.

Dear Harvey, Rabbit, Priya & Tiago
Thank you so very much for such a fantastic, relaxing week aboard Akasha.
In Alfie’s words the food was ‘the best ever’ (we thought so too!)
You guys are all so great with the children they had a brill week. They loved playing with all Akasha’s toys. We really needed another week to do everything.
Thank you for teaching Charlie to SCUBA. We can see this becoming a big passion. Shame it is so cold in the English Channel!! Alfie will soon be wanting to learn, but was pleased to see so many ‘ish’ with his snorkel and mask.
It was great to be back and we certainly hope to come again soon!
All the best
Simon, Clare, Charlie & Alfie

Could not have had a better ‘first time’ experience in the Caribbean! Thank you so much for everything – Amazing food, drinks and company! You truly made the experience a unique and amazing one, and one that I’ll never forget! Don’t want to leave and will not ever forget Akasha and her amazing crew. ☺ Miriam
Thank you for an incredible adventure. Could not have asked for a better crew!!! Ted
This trip was way too short! Thank you for being so helpful, easy-going and all round fun! You’re a great group of people and made this trip as awesome as it possibly could have been. We’ll miss you. Aimee
Thanks for being a wonderful and hospitable crew. We had the most relaxing vacation of all time and thoroughly enjoyed being spoiled by you all. Smooth sea + fair winds! Jamie
Thanks ever so much for a wonderful few (too few!) days with you aboard Akasha. You guys could not have been more pleasant and solicitous of our every need. Great food, great drinks, great company and great adventure. Thank you! Sterling
It has been an ideal cruise – a good yacht, pleasant company, and a strange coast with plenty of islands and rocks. Thank you Harvey, Cara, Priya & Tiago for your good care, gracious hospitality and sharing Akasha and her blue sea home with us. Mary

Thank you so much for a wonderful week. You were
such good sports to put up with our nonsense and to
jump right into the spirit of the week.
As you could tell we are a special group of friends who
treasure our time together and we loved that you could
make this trip so memorable. The food, the outings, the
diving, the massages, the cocktails and the boat made
for a perfect week.
Thanks for all you did for us.
Best Wishes, John & friends
January Corporate Charter BVI ...Broker Feedback
25th January 2013
Corporate Charter in the BVI....feedback from Broker.....
This year we chartered six yachts with a total of 51 guests and 34 crewmembers. I am happy to report that the 2013 charter was extremely successful and, after fourteen consecutive programs involving yacht charters, this one was possibly the best yet according to many of the repeat guests. As always the success is due primarily to the attitudes, efforts and execution by the captains and crews of all the yachts. A great deal of coordination, cooperation and willingness to help on all fronts was shown by all the crews and especially Harvey and his crew on Akasha.
Akasha was chosen as the yacht the lead charterer and I would be aboard and this placed additional pressure on the crew. They handled the duties with a relaxed grace and professionalism that fit the requirements perfectly. They were able to balance the needs of all their guests without missing a beat.
This charter places a great emphasis on dining with guests being able to have dinner aboard a number of different yachts during the charter. It is particularly noted that the guests on all the yachts had special praise for the meal service on Akasha and for Cara's talents.
Harvey’s and the whole crew’s cooperation was a big help and very much appreciated. I will be pleased to provide positive references and recommendations for the yacht and the crew. We will be pleased to have Akasha, Harvey & his crew on future charters for these and any other clients.

Out of 3 charters in The Caribbean this one was the best. We sailed, snorkelled, SCUBA dived and water skied (at least we tried). But best of all was the crew! Thanks to Harvey, Cara, CJ and Kim. You did a great job.

Dear Akasha Crew
Thanks for a wonderful week! God bless ‘Mama’s Special Juice’ so I could enjoy the ride. All of you were so lovely and helpful. Don’t think I will ever forget Cap Harvey saying “Backwards Sailing” with such kindness J Enjoy the rest of your travels and perhaps our paths will cross again.
Thanks for a great trip, it’s one I won’t soon forget. The service was superb, and I thank Rabbit for providing delicious meals with such limits on her. Let us know if you are ever in NW USA.
What a pleasure to see two worlds at once, the islands and the ocean, all while being treated like royalty. For a brief while I will have the treats on our bed to remind me of how good Rabbits’ cooking was and photos and video recalling the wonderful dives Kim and CJ took us on. From now on I will seek to have some of Harveys unending patience and good humor at every tribulation coming his way. Thank you
Thanks for a great week of SCUBA, gluten free delicacies, sailing, and stories from South Africa, Thailand et al. Have a great year ahead.
Many thoughts but few words. You took great care of my family. I am sure we will all have fond memories. We will tell stories long into the future. Take great care in the future.
What an amazing week, thanks for all the great times you shared with us, as well as taking care of our gluten/dairy/soy free customers. I look forward to making it back in the future.

The crew of Akasha is absolutely amazing- each of you made our experience aboard one of the most memorable times of our lives. We will forever treasure the moments we've shared with our family on this magnificent boat.....Food has been spectacular, but your service has been the most gracious of all. God bless and thank you all'
