Mid-May, 2016 guests on FLYING GINNY said:

Our family chartered Flying Ginny in May 2016. Everything was fantastic. The crew sent us a preference sheet way in advance, asking us what we liked and disliked. They gave us advice on airlines to use, taxis to take, in fact every question we asked, the answer turned out to be correct. On arrival we were amazed at the comfort and space aboard Flying Ginny. We had previously been on a catamaran here with no crew. What a difference. Captain Austin took us to anchorages we never knew existed, sailed perfectly, and constantly occupied the kids with water sports. The food, thanks to Chef Philippa was as good as any 5 star restaurant. She worked magic in the galley, we should not have been surprised as we found out afterwards that she has a wonderful culinary training. We will certainly be back, but never on our own again. Thanks so much Austin and Philippa. Also the wonderful Flying Ginny. An amazing boat

Our charter on Flying Ginny was fantastic. Austin and Philippa took care of our every need. The food was outstanding and the sailing and activities were exactly what we were looking for. We would definitely charter with them again!!

June 2014
Thank you for your interest regarding our experience on the Flying Ginny.  We had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the company of Captain Scully and Casey.   Captain Scully’s knowledge of the area enabled him to take us to  beautiful snorkeling sites with abundant marine life and breathtaking settings.  He was able to accommodate our requests and he provided interesting  locations to visit.  His expertise at sailing is quite apparent and he made the trip one of the  most relaxing I have ever experienced.  I was impressed how the cabins and yacht were kept in pristine condition at all times.  Captain Scully and Casey are true professionals.
Casey is a master chef!  All the meals she prepared were absolutely delicious as well as beautifully presented.   It is unbelievable that she is able to prepare outstanding fine cuisine in such a tiny kitchen (galley!).  She has a lovely personality and is a true joy to be around.
My sons and I truly enjoyed the whole experience.  They are both quiet and I think that Cpt. Scully was wondering if they were enjoying themselves.  He can rest assured that they most certainly did…….they talked about it for days and I overheard them telling their friends about the fun they had sailing and snorkeling.
I enjoyed my time on the Flying Ginny and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in visiting the British Virgin Islands.  I wish we had booked it for a longer period of time.

When we first saw Captain Austin and Chef Philippa at Molly Malone’s our first thought was how young they were. It didn’t take long for us to realize that was not a problem. They handled themselves in a very professional manner at all times. Captain Austin handled the boat wonderfully and always asked what we wanted to do. When we didn’t know, he would take over and take us to all of the places he thought we would like to see. When we went diving, he helped with our tanks, holding onto to them until we went into the water. Chef Philippa was a great chef and her meals were all wonderful. We all felt very pampered and taken care of on this trip. I highly recommend these two people and you can use this recommendation in any advertisement you wish. 

Captain Austin took control right away and we were off on the brilliant blue waters with the sails to the wind. We truly learned to respect his control of the Flying Ginny and his knowledge of the area. His suggestions suited each of us including excellent sailing, scuba diving coves, snorkeling in the turquoise waters, and sitting on the white sandy beaches. Chef Philippa, a graduate of the Ashburton Cookery School in London and has a law degree, divides her time between the galley, assisting the Captain, and as a Master Scuba Diver. She led our tentative divers to a shipwreck and other underwater sites. Her skills in the 5’X 5’ galley were exceptional. The small area included all the tools of the trade except a microwave. The freezer was well stocked and two refrigerators held the fresh products. She did use a food processor as the tossing of the boat was a bit dangerous for a knife. All meals were served on deck in the balmy air. Every breakfast was different and the Brioche French toast with banana rum sauce was perfect with our morning coffee or tea. Lunches included wraps, grilled chick- en, Mahi Mahi and Captain’s famous cheese burgers. Cocktail hour, which always started pretty early, was accompanied by appetizers as Romesco sauce with pita slices or caramelized red onion crostini. Captain Austin, with a Business Management degree and family restaurant history, excelled at the barbeque. His beef tender- loin was cooked perfectly for each taste. This was served with wonderful cream and garlic scalloped potatoes, grilled asparagus, Marsala wine braised shallots and Balsamic sautéed cabbage with chocolate mousse as our dessert. The galley became a sweat box as our Chef prepared each dish including a made from scratch cheese- cake that was exceptional.

Both Austin and Philippa were awesome. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Especially appreciated Austin’s willingness to sail as often as possible and Philippa’s 6th sense in appearing just as you finished your drink or had a whim of something to munch. Both Austin and Philippa were awesome. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Especially appreciated Austin’s willingness to sail as often as possible and Philippa’s 6th sense in appearing just as you finished your drink or had a whim of something to munch. The anniversary dinner they put on for us was just amazing. Private beach, perfect timing for the sunset. Chilled champagne, a sumptuous dinner that met our dietary needs without compromising on taste or presentation. A beautiful beach blanket which we got to take home and all under flickering candlelight. Truly spectacular and something that a simple thank you does not really do justice to. I had this simple idea and they produced an absolute masterpiece. Austin and Philippa were soooo accommodating and did such a fantastic job with each and every request we made. I don’t think we’ve been anywhere, anytime when we’ve been treated so wonderfully. Every day was better than the one prior and every evening was magical. The sailing was outstanding. The food was scrumptious and so pretty I couldn’t help but take pictures of it.

Austin & Phillipa seem to have an excellent grip on reading the groups energy levels and the types of activities we would like. Evan had so many questions regarding being a captain and flooded Austin with thousands of questions but Austin answered every one of them with enthusiasm and kept the conversation going. Evan even said, "Austin makes me feel like a captain. Like I can do this too!" Austin was very sweet and taught him so much about being a captain on a boat! To the point where I think Evan might switch careers! The group has always known about Naomi's "obsession" with dolphins and laughed it off and said they would explore the island and lay on the beach while she "went to kiss a dolphin." Evan said he would go with her but wouldn't do it, Austin saw Naomi was a little upset no one wanted to share in the moment with her so he said, "I'll join you Naomi. I'll do it too." And he did!! This is above and beyond of what is expected from a captain and even customer service! Even the other tourists were surprised that our captain joined me and said we must be on one great boat! Naomi, Evan and the group were beyond satisfied and asked for seconds not bc we were still hungry but we couldn't believe the quality of food she could deliver from that tiny kitchen! Her cooking was better than any island food that Leann and others were asking for recipes to take home!
