Dear Captain Gord & Chef Ginny:
We were hoping for a trip of a lifetime! A trip to celebrate Janet and Gerry turning 60 and our 30th Anniversary, John’s 25th birthday, Julia’s graduation! Well… Your crew succeeded beyond our hopes! We hit everything on our bucket list – snorkeling, beaching, dancing, touring and experiencing all the history and folklore while being entertained and informed!Your crew is top notch and was a perfect fit for our mixed crowd of fun-seekers. We will talk about Chef Ginny’s culinary skills for years to come and continue to be mesmerized by your adventures around the world. Gord and Ginny-you made this trip the lifetime memory we dreamed of.

Thank you for a remarkable trip! The amenities on the boat were fantastic! The entire crew was beyond top notch! The food was definitely a 5 Star experience. Gordon and Ginny made us all feel welcome from the moment we stepped on the boat. They were always close by, but not ever invasive. The entire crew aimed to please! The crew was extremely professional, knowledgeable of the places we traveled to and personable!! If there is one complaint to be made, it would be we didn’t have enough time to enjoy it more. A marvelous crew and boat!

To Captain Gord, Chef Ginny and the spectacular crew:
Much thanks for pampering us and tending to our every need! What a magical and unforgettable experience aboard the luxuriant Decompression. We will never forget the yacht, the crew, the memories and laughs.
So very grateful for the moment we were welcomed on board with a glass of champagne and the removal of our shoes, we knew the “Decompression” was about to begin and the experience would be unique! This was an incredible vacation with a top notch crew; from Captain Gord’s insights and stories to Chef Ginny’s 5-star restaurant cooking, to the 24/7 quality service offered by the entire crew.

Can’t say enough good things about Gord and Ginny. They were professional, fun to talk to, skilled in their own roles, and had a good sense of when to engage and when to leave us to ourselves. They were very safety oriented and knowledgeable about the whole sailing adventure. Gord and Ginny were great with wonderful experience and stories they could share about their travels around the world. They both focused on making the trip enjoyable for us. They made the trip Awesome. The food was outstanding. Ginny is not just a cook and first mate; she is a true CHEF! The meal presentations were beautiful; the food choices were varied, fresh and interesting. Outstanding cuisine! The sailing vacation was everything we had hoped for and more. We had a fantastic time and would recommend this trip to others.

Ginny and Gord are highly skilled and attentive to the needs and wishes of guests. We cannot imagine that any charter at any price could match the top drawer service and hospitality they provide. We are referring friends at every opportunity. Gord & Ginny planned our itinerary in a way that met the desires of our group. Because of their superior sailing skills, we enjoyed 3 weeks’ worth of fun and sights in only 1 week. Ginny prepared wonderful meals and snacks, accommodating difficult special dietary requests. The meals magically appeared at the perfect time, just as we were all ready to eat. Best of all the food was both delicious and healthy. Ginny and Gord made this an unforgettable trip of a lifetime for us – our best vacation ever! Ginny and Gord are a delightful and amazing couple. We treasure our special time together and new friendship. This pair is truly your best asset in this business!!! We are referring our friends at every opportunity, so long as Ginny and Gord are crew.
Everything was exceptional. Captain Gord and Ginny were amazing guides. They are seasoned Sailors and Gord’s expertise with handling the yacht, his keen eye for weather variations, his expertise on the water, and his diligence in caring for his passengers is exemplary! Ginny’s ability to entertain and feed the guests is second to none. She is truly a gifted Chef in First Mate’s clothing! Ginny’s skills as a Chef are exemplary. She was able to maintain her duties as a First Mate as well as feed the people on board with excellent meal plans and presentation! It is because of Captain Gord and Chef Ginny that we will be back for sure! Their friendliness, skills, attention to detail, and overall love of the BVI made this the most memorable vacation for us!

Best crew out of 4 previous cruises. Extremely personable friendly professional. Like talking with a friend. Flexible and knowledgeable as adverse sea conditions required changes. Ginny is a gourmet chef extraordinaire, an amazing cook. As a cook myself I got some great inspiration for my future meals. She needs to publish a cook book
Five Star accommodations are jealous of “The Ginny & Gord Experience”. My husband and I had the time of our lives sailing with Ginny & Gord! They are gracious, fun and delightful in every way. We quickly became comfortable with the hospitality and fun atmosphere created by our hosts. Our every wish was scheduled for us as we enjoyed breakfast each morning. Our days were filled with diving, snorkeling, land tours, entertainment and even quiet time to relax under the stars. Their sailing skills are expert and the food was fabulous. Honestly I cannot understand how 2 people could do so much. The level of hospitality and service they provided could not be duplicated by a much larger crew.
The BEST crew ever – we have comparisons and have sailed with others. Gord and Ginny were by far the most professional, capable, attentive, and wonderful crew we have ever had the pleasure to know and to sail with. The food was beyond great! Gord’s skills are beyond anything. Their relationship with each other and us was perfect. I can’t say enough great and excellent things about them. I would never want to be with another crew!
We had the time of our life sailing with Ginny & Gord! They are expert sailors and navigators. They are also extremely sweet and fun people, as well as very patient with difficult guests. We always had a great time, and we always slept well knowing Gord and Ginny had all of the sailing and navigation under control. Ginny is an amazing and creative cook. She prepares delicious meals with fresh and local ingredients. The crew are both excellent tour guides, and they took us to all of the best spots in the British Virgin Islands.
