Geoff & Iza Prower are an outgoing British couple, who love the outdoors, the sea, the cruising life and meeting new friends. Their Caribbean cruising started in 2003 on their first boat, Dream On, a sailing monohull, and they have been cruising the Caribbean and East Coast USA for 6 years and for over 12,000 miles.
Dreaming On is their second boat, having made the leap from monohull to multihull in 2008.
Separately or together they have lived and worked in the Lebanon, Yemen Arab Republic, Seychelles, Nairobi in Kenya, South Africa, Saudi Arabia and Dubai in the UAE. Geoff has enjoyed a varied career in aviation, mostly in East Africa and Saudi Arabia. Assisted by Iza, he managed the creation of a new tourist seaplane service in Dubai during 2007.
Now as owner/operators of their Leopard 47 catamaran they want to share their enjoyment of cruising the Virgin Islands with you.
Geoff and Iza combine their talents and experience to create an unforgettable sailing vacation for guests of all ages.
Iza has always been a world traveler. She has managed businesses in the Yemen, worked as chef on a charter yacht in the Seychelles, managed exhibitions in London, run her own carpentry business in Kenya, taught information technology in Saudi Arabia. Iza loves exploring, whether underwater or seeking that magical secluded bay or deserted island. She is a PADI Rescue Diver. Luckily for Geoff, if Iza’s not underwater, out kayaking or beachcombing, she’s enjoying her long-standing passion for cooking. This is influenced by the many cultures she has experienced and she will pamper you with delicious gourmet cuisine from every corner of the globe.
Geoff was almost born on a boat as his parents were building one during his very early years. By the age of 6 he could safely navigate their motor cruiser. Later he learned to sail in the hectic waters of Portsmouth Harbour in the UK, home of the Royal Navy.
He holds a Caribbean Boatmasters Licence and is also a PADI Rescue Diver.
Served with succulent local fruits, fruit juices, freshly brewed coffee and a selection of teas. Plus cereals, yogurts and a variety of fresh breads, toast and preserves each day.
All lunches served with Freshly Baked Breads and a Crispy Green Salad. Ice Cold Water and a choice of Soft Drinks, Beer or Wine
DREAMING ON GUESTS COMMENTS
Read MoreThe portions were ample enough to satisfy even the hungriest. Cook is not an appropriate title, a more befitting honour would be “World Class Chef”.
Now Geoff titled the “Captain” maneuvered “Dreaming On” with such skill and technique like they were one. The Captain performed many of repairs and upgrades on the vessel. Upon boarding we thought we were on the maiden voyage of Dreaming On with its gleaming decks and the orderly fashion that items were stowed. It was almost like its christening had just happened the day before and the champagne still fresh on its bow. Dreaming On wore her years well and proved to be a worthy veteran. A tribute to the crews hard work and dedicated ownership of Dreaming On.

Dreaming On is a 47 foot catamaran with three cabins which mean’t everyone had their own cabin and head making it very comfortable. The catamaran makes for a very stable ride, both underway and at anchor which reduces the chances of anyone being seasick if it does happen. The cockpit is very roomy and shaded which makes for wonderful meals outside as well as relaxing at anytime of day. The foredeck and trampoline between the hulls at the bow are also nice and roomy so laying out in the sun, or hanging from the hammock is very relaxing. We all liked sitting in the beanbag chairs on the trampoline while underway, a nice, relaxing breeze while watching the waves pass by. Did I mention toys? Dreaming On has two windsurfers, one that can become a paddle board, two kayaks, masks, snorkels, fins, noodles, etc. If they are missing anything, I can’t think of it. The kids had a blast, they kayaked, snorkeled, went on the tube pulled by Geoff in the dinghy and windsurfed. We all had lots of relaxing time listening to music and reading, laying about.
Each day we visited a different area. Geoff and Iza know so much about the islands and their history and your itinerary is based on your wants, needs and the weather. I can’t say enough good things about the entire trip.
The food onboard was excellent, fresh with great presentation and variety. We enjoyed every meal. Before your trip Geoff and Iza send you a questionnaire which covers everyone’s preferences (food, drinks, allergies if any, etc.) and from there Iza develops a great menu. We enjoyed every meal and all were better than we found ashore.
I could go on but in summary, we all had an excellent time and the trip provided us with warm memories we will have with us forever. I would recommend Dreaming On and Geoff and Iza without hesitation to anyone and when we have the chance to return to the Caribbean we will take a charter with them again.

Geoff and Iza were also very knowledgeable about the islands and did an outstanding job of tailoring the trip to what our family wanted to experience. Geoff was an excellent captain, was great with our boys and has a wealth of life experiences to share.
There were too many other things to mention here, but a few other efforts that stand out – the boat was kept extraordinarily clean, they went above and beyond to help us celebrate our son’s 11th birthday, they put together a photo book for us after our trip (using a combination of our pictures and pictures they took), Geoff pulled our boys in an inner tube with their dingy and also taught us to kneeboard, and they kept lots of fun toys (paddle boards, kayaks, etc) on board for us to use.

Your hospitality was superb, with a balance of attention, while allowing us space to spend time as a family. Iza’s cooking was everything the website suggested. Your sensitivity towards Fatima’s sea legs helped make the trip a resounding success. She has been enthusing about the sailing since the day we returned home, so I have no doubt we will be back for another trip on Dreaming On.

JUNE 2012 Honeymoon
We had such an amazing honeymoon, sailing the BVI, with you on “Dreaming On”. We loved your impeccable attention to detail, including arranging transport when our ferry cancelled, having Dive BVI pick us up right from the boat and insuring the dinner music fit our taste exactly. Your homemade gourmet meals looked as good as they tasted. We can’t wait to try them at home but doubt they will look or taste as good as yours!
June 2012 – 40th birthday for EVERYONE

What a wonderful way for the six of us to enter our ‘40’s!!
Great boat, great food, great hosts. Thank you!
