“We had Captain Rick & Deb run a boat for us in the BVIs back in March 2023 . They took care of everything , sailing the boat , all the food and drinks , all the snorkeling spots & of course the safety of all of us . They cooked all our meals & everything was delicious. 7 days of pure bliss. They both made it so fun & relaxing. Can’t say enough of this “ crew “ they are the best in the business. We have been with them on Artemis a few times too and can’t wait to be sailing with them this summer. Thank you again Captain Rick & Deb.” – Phil D. Google Review

“My husband and I had a wonderful time sailing on the Artemis with Captain Rick and Deb off the coast of Gloucester. They were both such genuinely warm and kind people, and we enjoyed our conversations with them as much as the beautiful sunset and views of the coastline. It is a relaxing experience away from the crowds, and their boat is not only beautiful but also extremely comfortable. It has ample seating and even has mats located near the front of the boat so that you can lay down and soak in the sunshine! They have a deep respect for nature, and Captain Rick is highly experienced in sailing and knowledgeable about life in the oceans, with amazing stories to share. We can’t wait to go sailing with them again, and can’t recommend a trip with them highly enough!” – Julie S. Google Review

“My husband and I had a fabulous time on Rick and Deb’s charter in the BVI. Rick and Deb were very professional but super friendly too. Rick handled the boat fabulously and we sailed all over the BVI, snorkeling in the gorgeous waters, lounging in the sun, and living like the rich and famous. They knew all the best places to go for swimming and snorkeling and took great care of us. It was a TRUE vacation from work. Deb was primary Chef, but Rick had wonderful skills there too, and each and every meal was a treat, then Deb would rout out tapas each afternoon– talk about being pampered!. Be sure to try Rick’s grilled Mahi-Mahi — best I have ever eaten ANYWHERE, and the Moroccan Chicken was superb!” Laura P. Google Review

“We had a fantastic time sailing with Rick and Deb in the BVI. Great company, knowledgeable of the islands, exceptional seamanship, delicious food, and itinerary flexibility. Their efforts made our vacation a fantastic experience.” – Bruce F. Google Review

“Artemis Sailing crew is amazing! I used to work as professional yacht crew running charter boats. Chartered a catamaran for a week with Rick and Deb in the Virgin Islands. They worked really hard to accommodate all of our needs. With 8 guests, I’m sure it wasn’t easy but they did an excellent job. The food was great as was their company. The flexibility of the itinerary was really important due to cruise ship locations. Rick always got us to where we wanted to be even if he had to get underway really early. We are looking forward to joining the Artemis crew for another week long charter next year wherever they may be. Hopefully soon I will get to New England and get to go for a day sail with them on Artemis.” – Gwen G. Google Review
