BLOSSOM GUESTS COMMENTS

January 2019
What a wonderful way to open up the new year! Here in the BVI on the beautiful Blossom Cat, with the most awesome Captain and his wonderful wife who treated Jeff and I as gold. The food was very nice and tasty as well and never over cooked! Presentation equally as well.
Just want to thank them both for a job well done, it will be an experience that I will always remember and that is saying a lot because I don’t remember much. I believe Jeff was very impressed as well because he told me so.
We wish them all the best of luck with future charters and hope all their guests as as pleased as we were. No doubt about that.
Many more good years to you, we can tell you love what you do!
Hugs & stay safe!

Jamie & Thea,
We wanted to thank both of your for a spectacular & brilliant week! Thanks for everything & looking forward to the next trip!

Hope to see you all soon!

December 2018
Dear Thea & Jamie,
Thank you so much for a most delightful trip! Right from the moment we stepped on board we felt at home. Every aspect of the experience made it a dream – the food, the fun, the secluded beaches, the starry nights! Even the “Great Northern Caribbean Orange Spotted Towel!” Or the casually floating away little cushion!
Or the casually floating away little cushion! We really enjoyed every little thing this boat had. You two are the ultimate dynamic duo! We loved getting to know you and hearing your stories. Thank you for showing us the best the BVI has to offer, and for all the new experiences (waterskiing for starters)! Not to forger all the healthy morning smoothies & yoga!!

Thank you for a wonderful time on board blossom! It became our home, you were both wonderful. Hope we see you again!

All the best,
Nikhil, Mandria, Rohan, Rishabah
Hospitality and Warmth
Dear Jamie & Thea,
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. I am very grateful for your hospitality and warmth. I enjoyed your presence very much and I will be incorporating some of your words into my life, especially cheeky monkey! Fate thee well for the next leg of your journey!

-Sara
Thoroughly Enjoyable!
Dear Captain Jamie and Thea,
Thank you so very much for a thoroughly enjoyable time from our point of origin to our point of departure. Everything exceeded our expectations. Captain Jamie’s patience in explaining navigation and endless runs to shuttle us was greatly appreciated. Thea’s cooking and kindness was the best. You both love what you do, and it was so obvious to both of us.

Love,
Roy and Erin
Unforgettable!
You two made this experience unforgettable. It’s been a dream come true. Your personality, attitude, patience and genuine love shines and any guest will be most fortunate to have you two as crew and friends. Come see us in Nashville anytime, you’re welcome at our home.

Happy Sailing,
Brad and Tracey
Late March, 2018, guests with Jamie and Thea on catamaran BLOS
Dear Jamie and Thea,
Where do we begin? Such a wonderful trip!
Thank you so much for showing us around the BVI. We can’t wait to return. Thank you so much for welcoming us into your home and treating us as if we were family. You two make such a wonderful team. Please keep in touch with us and would love to see you guys when you arrive in Florida.
Love,
Matt, Shannon, Gavin, and Madison
Generous hospitality…
Dear Jamie and Thea,
We can’t thank you enough for your kind and generous hospitality. The trip exceeded all expectations and created memories that will last a lifetime. The opportunity to spend New Years eve at the Bitter End was made even more special with your son Grant and his Fiance Tara. We felt like honorary members of your clan and ringing in 2016 could not have been better! Your attention to every detail made our every hope for this trip a reality. It is great to see a couple as happy together as the two of you. Your enthusiasm and passion is truly infectious.
Alright, enough of this sentimental stuff…Lets raise a glass of Rum and celebrate great times + great new friends.
Love, Bobby, Mellissa, Mike & Kelley
Amazing!
Jaime and Thea,
What an adventure we have had together. Beautiful bays and coves, perfect overnight locations, crazy strong winds, rain clouds keeping Jaime on his feet, THE BATHS, seeing most of the best spots the BVI has to offer. Thea’s and my crazy steep drive over Tortola to the Road Town clinic, coughing & more coughing, Jaime putting on the Chefs hat, beautiful sunny days & clear blue water.
Thea you have wrecked my husband for my future cooking. I will aspire to follow in your amazing food foot steps.
Both of your big hearts, kind nature & “welcome aboard to your boat” attitude made our week with you amazing!!
Adriane & Michael
Wonderful week
Jamie and Thea,
Thank you both for such a wonderful week. The food was absolutely delicious every night (as were the drinks…) and you took us to some wonderful places that suited us perfectly. Thank you also for being so kind to the kids (and chatting with them while we slept) You were wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome and incredibly well looked after!
The Sacks family
Perfect vacation
Our vacation was perfect from start to finish. The hospitality incredible, the food wonderful and the destinations just beautiful. Thea & Jamie were gracious hosts and WOW can Thea cook. Jamie knew exactly where to take us for the best diving and scenery.
We highly recommend J&T for the very best vacation.
Stacey and Larry
We needed this…
Simply put, this is the vacation we desperately needed. After a year of nonstop work and stress, this was what we needed most. Thanks for seeing to our very need and desires throughout the trip. Your expertise and suggestions on mooring sites helped us to navigate beyond the over crowded beaches and bays of the high season. The meals were fantastic and desert was a perpetual “yes” when we didn’t think we could eat anymore. The boat is our favorite so far because of the large suites and overall wonderful layout. Our highest complements to the crews and we look forward to seeing you in the future.
Best wishes and thank you for everything.
Jeremy and Emily

Dear Jamie and Thea,
We want to thank you both for the wonderful opportunity to spend our vacation with both of you. We have sailed in the BVI many times since 1980.
You were both accommodating, helpful, friendly, kind and generous with your time and talents. The food was delicious and presented in such a lovely way. Your knowledge of the islands was unsurpassed. Thank you for keeping is SAFE.
Love,
Bill and Robin
Best birthday!
We came for Janis’s birthday on the 32rd…and what a week this has been. Jaime and Thea…you have been like real friends, welcoming and courteous. This was our first experience on a sail boat and will be remembered for ever. We saw the best of the Virgin Islands-very beautiful beaches, The food was excellent and the company exquisite. We certainly licked out and feel very privileged to have met you and spent the week. Your boat is immaculate. The service was so attentive…indeed a privilege and a great experience. Best of luck with all your future charters.
We would love to do this again.
Janis and Guy

Charter Guests with Jamie and Thea said:
“Absolutely fabulous!”

“We sailed with my wife and 2 daughters, 9 and 8. We all loved Jamie and Thea and highly recommend them for any charter. ”

“From the moment we met Jamie and Thea it was if we had known them for years. They are the consummate hosts and meet your every need before you even know you have one! This is the best boat with the best hosts in the BVI. We will be back!”

“What a wonderful experience this was! Jamie and Thea were an absolute joy to be around. They had a wonderful sense of humor and great knowledge of the BVIs. We loved spending NYE with them. I can’t wait to book our next adventure!”

“It was our friends first time chartering and in the BVI so it was great fun to be with them and share. Thea and Jamie were exceptional hosts! Clean and relaxing environment, wonderful sized staterooms and baths, Thea’s food was wonderful and she did a great job catering to one of our folks who is a “little bit picky”, Jamie and Thea both showed us the ropes on chartering – teaching us along the way. Couldn’t have asked for a better boat or crew! ”
Therapeutic and wonderful
Dear Thea and Jamie,
Thank you for an amazing week of food, snorkeling, and exploring the beautiful islands. You have made us feel completely at home and relaxed. It has been therapeutic and wonderful family time. We are blessed to have met both of you and look forward to sailing with you again in the future.

All the best to you-
Doug, Sharon, Joseph, and Lilli
Amazing week
Jamie and Thea,
Just wanted to say thank you for the amazing week we spent on the boat. It was our first time sailing, but definitely not our last. The boys had a blast and don’t even want to go home. Thank you for the amazing food and Elan’s birthday party. Hope to see you again on our next charter!

-Akiva, Ora, Elan, and Eliam
Incredible
Dear Jamie and Thea,
We can’t thank you enough for the great vacation. Your knowledge of the islands and kindness with putting up with 3 crazy teenage boys is everything we could have hoped for. The food and drinks were incredible and your attention to us was something we aren’t used to! Wishing you many happy sunsets in the future.

I had a fabulous time! Thank you for teaching me everything.
-Marshall

This was probably the most relaxing trip I’ve ever taken. Thank you for your generosity.
-Lucas

Great trip! Jamie and Thea are the parents I never had!
-Helene
Outstanding week!
What an outstanding week you’ve given us here in the BVI. The sights we’ve had the pleasure of seeing thanks to y’alls suggestions were nothing short of spectacular! We can’t even describe how wonderfully tasty all the meals and snacks were! (yes, diet starts tomorrow). Your friendship and laughter added so much to the week. Thank you both so much for everything. Remember, y’all are always welcome in Texas! And Coco, the island boy may try to keep you. His tank can float a boat.

All the best,
Steve, Cindy, Lacey, Kyle, and Coco
Amazing week

What an amazing week of sun, snorkeling, adventure and delicious meals. I feel like we have not only had an incredible vacation, but made great new friends. If you ever make it to Colorado, make sure to allow us to return some hospitality.
