Dear Martin & Cari-Mari,
Thank you so, so much for your energy, light sense of humor, sense of adventure, sailing skills and for some of the best food we have ever encountered! As Ian aptly stated "I've run out of superlatives!"
Thank you for making our sweet kids feel cherished and valued. You've made our time here delightful.
Also, an extra special thank you for Christy's B-day celebration. She shed tears of joy! Well done!

Mr. & Mrs. Captain
What an amazing bar you have set for my first Caribbean sail!!! I appreciate your attention to safety!!! The meals were 5 star plus. I am sure I will have to go on a 7 day fast to recover. They were so good I couldn't resist leaving any on my plate!
Again, thank you for the amazing week, I couldn't have dreamed it would be this good!
We wish you the very best and hope to see you next year!!!

Martin & Cari
It was an amazing experience with both of you this week in our Caribbean paradise! Cari, your innovations in cooking were remarkable and the results were 5 star restaurant quality! Your efforts to make our trip extra special were only exceeded by your effortless smile that clearly comes straight from your enormous heart! Martin, your confidence and safety first approach are perfect. Bad things can happen when alcohol and open-water come together, but your vigilant watch assures the safety of your guests. To you two, the couple traveling through this beautiful world together, may the days meet you more often with blue skies, may the sun more often shine warmly on your faces, and when the inevitable storm clouds of life present themselves, know that love will be the shortest and safest path through. It has been an distinct pleasure and one I will reflect on many times in the years ahead!
Love you both!

What can we say but THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! It is not our first sail but a fabulous one I must say..... you made every detail quite the experience. We didn't have to lift a finger as you thought of it for us. The love that went into your service was quite apparent! And that you don't get everywhere. The gourmet meals (and we mean every meal was a 5 star) were light when needed and filling when alcohol came in play. Every detail was well executed and yet when needed a complete renewal happened. We will be letting EVERYONE know about YES DEAR and how they roll because of the incredible crew of Captain Martin and Chef, First Mate, Hostess Cari-Mari.
Again thank you for making our week in our favorite place one to remember for a life time!

Dear "Yes, Dear"
It has been an absolute pleasure to sail with you both! You're an amazing couple and we are enriched by getting to know you. The care you took in planning & timing our excursions, sights to see, meals & drinks was excellent! Regarding the meals, Cari-Mari - you are an artist!! Each new meal exceeded the last. It is simply magical what you do in your galley. I also want to thank Captain Martin for your patience in answering our endless questions about sailing and the B.V.I. Being from Texas we often use the phrase "this ain't our first rodeo" and this wasn't our first charter in these waters. However, it has now climbed to the top of our favorites!! We would not hesitate to endorse you both to anyone that is considering a trip of a lifetime. This certainly has been one of ours. We will now look forward to the next one with you. We do sincerely appreciate you and all you did for us!

Captain and Captain! The omnipotent beings that breathed new life into me, the ones that reverted me back to my child like sense of wonder, made me realize what is truly important, and what we should not waste our energy on, thank you! To you I owe my life! My new life! A life of positivity and wonder! A life of renewed purpose and profound direction. You have helped make me in tune with the great mother and gifted me with experiences I simply will never forget! Thank you again! I cannot in words express my immense gratitude but please know it is there. The Devine nectar and ambrosia from Cari, and the awe-inspiring sites and experiences from Martin you have truly given me the time of my life! So here is to progression, here is to our new life! Let us get the hell out there and live it!
Love, the eternally grateful,

Captain Martin and Cari-Mari, I've met a lot of awesome people, but no one has even come close to you two. This trip was everything I needed and more. I'll never forget you fun loving people. South Africa and Moab next, right??
Welcome to our family, everything is awesome when your part of the ........!
Thanks for impacting my life and making this my favorite vacation yet. Love, Scraba D.

Captain Martin and Cari-Mari
I knew going in that this trip would be awesome. What I didn't know, was how awesome. You both worked extremely hard to help make this a memorable experience for me and my family. I will never forget you guys and will cherish the memories made with you.
For real. When you are ready for a holiday in the States, come see Moab. You'll have a place to stay and personal guides! Thanks again for being awesome. Hope your experience with us was as good as ours with you.
Cheers "Old Fart" Kelly and Sam

Martin & Cari,
Words feel inadequate, but here goes. Thank you for making this trip truly amazing! The food, the music, the conversation, the drinks, the dance parties, the fire spinning, the snorkeling, the water, the lovely Yes Dear, the laughter, the smiles, the adventures. It's all been priceless. Really. Thanks so much for bringing back life perspective & what's important. It would be incredible to see you again. It'd be the same, but different, seriously. Thanks for making this a trip of a lifetime. So let's go be awesome somewhere else! Renerah + Dustin

Dear Martin & Cari-Mari,
From Sunday to Sunday, we were totally immersed in the beauty and fun of the BVI.
Your ability to appear and disappear at just the right times was seamless.
Both of you are delightful individuals but as a couple- WOW! Martin, your skills, sense of humor, and work ethic make you a Captain in the perfect way for the benefit of your guests.
Cari, all of us enjoyed the creativity, presentation and excellence of every meal. But, as you said, the love you add to your cooking enhance all of these elements.
Thank you so much for working 24/7 with smiling faces. You attended to each of us as if we were special. It is you all who are special.
We wish you, your career and your marriage the best for the rest of your lives.

Dear Martin & Cari-Mari

Thank you both so much for such a delightful week. We were honored to be your first charter post the hurricanes this fall and we appreciate how much extra effort you had to have put in to make this week happen. It was delightful getting to know you both and thank you for taking such good care of all of us. Your ability to handle 5 kids, 4 adults, and the boat was awesome.
Cari-Mari, your cooking is sensational! How you manage to prepare so many unique, beautiful and delicious meals every day will always amaze me. Your warm heart, beautiful smile and fabulous smelling infusers I will never forget.
Martin, your happy and relaxed energy really helped all of us chill out from our north east crazy brains. Your yummy cocktails and sense of adventure will stay with us always.
Our families wanted a trip of a lifetime for our kids and you delivered it every day!
Hopefully we make it back to you someday! Thanks for the amazing memories!

All the best,
Scrip & Peter

Martin thank you for letting me drive the tender. Cari-Mari thank you for the yummy food.

My favorite thing is the trampoline hammock!

Cari & Martin
The last week has been the most wonderful experience at sea and when I look back to one key important reason of why is because of you two guys.
Your dedication, attention and kindness meant the world to me and my wife, which happen to be her 50th birthday present (this trip). So, I want to thank you both for giving us the best experience at sea, lots of good memories to talk when we grow old and in the process gaining two good friends.
South African people rock!

Cari-Mari you are a great chef, and Martin you are always pleasing everybody, great couple. Thank you for making my vacation on board a memorable one.

Captain Martin and Cari-Mari,
Thank you both so much for an amazing vacation. It was a week filled with firsts. First time sleeping on a boat, first time snorkeling with turtles, first time tubing and our first time in the BVI. The gluten-free food was delicious!! We appreciate all your effort and attention to detail. We loved how you both were so kind, fun and caring especially towards the girls. It was a vacation of a lifetime!

Martin & Cari,
How do you properly thank someone for a trip of a lifetime?
We cannot adequately put in words the number of superlatives for two incredible people- that we now consider friends.
CHASING SUMMER is not just a phrase - it's a way of life for Martin & Cari. THEY LIVE IT! They have a deep passion for it. And they demonstrate it - ALL DAY, EVERYDAY. We just were lucky enough to join them on a small piece of their journey.
CHEERS (look in the eyes)!!
We love you so much

Gracious hospitality....
Your hospitality, warmth, graciousness, flexibility and good humour made this a week to always reflect on.... The food was fantastic, drinks never ending, snokeling trips outstanding and the boat was always ship-shape.
Randi & Stuart H.
Warm hospitality...
Your warm hospitality, lively energy, plus mouth-watering cuisine made our trip truly memorable. The snorkeling was the best and the sailing winds made for thrilling crossings.... Thanks for bringing the best out in each one of us. Kathreen & Mark T.

People make good times into great experiences. While the BVI are beautiful islands and Yes Dear is a fine, comfortable, and well appointed vessel, it is the fact that we have had you two as our crew and guides that I'll most remember and cherish. You two truly understand and deliver enlightened hospitality.
