Peter and Jade are a great couple and are very hard working. Jade's culinary abilities are first class in both quality, quantity, and presentation. Peter makes great drinks and served and paired good wines with our dinner meals. There was no lack of brand beverages that we requested or that was provided. It was terrific.
Diving was great. Peter did a good job on making sure we were comfortable and safe in the water and that all equipment was working properly. He was a great help in assisting us to get in/out of the water.
“ Fantastic week with the Thomas Family. Perfect weather, accommodations, fellowship and hosts”
One week is far too short now back to the ‘world’ and so looking forward to the next journey back to island life.
Thanks Pete and Jade -fabulous new friends.

Pete and Jade
Thank you both so much for your warm hospitality and companionship. This was our first time in the BVI and the first time we chartered a boat —so we really had no idea what we were in for. From the first moment on the dock we have felt welcomed and relaxed. This is truly an amazing experience- one that we will never forget. The food, the sights, the time together on and off the boat have brought us closer together as a family and given us plenty of memories to share and recount for many years.
We will think of you often, Scott, Amy, Kathryn, Charlie and Caroline
Dear Jade and Peter,
I don’t even know where to begin! This past week has been absolutely amazing! We never dreamed we would have had the chance to do something this fabulous and fun! I really want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking such wonderful care of us and for being the best tour guides in the area. Your knowledge of the islands and your friendliness has been phenomenal. And last but not least we literally had the best meals we have eaten in ages and will be talking about Chef Jade’s food for years to come! May you continue your journey safely, happy and on your own terms! We will never forget this past week and will always hold the best memories of our trip!
God bless you, Love,
Jennifer, Josh, Emma, Stella, and David

Love Matt, bridget, Manning, Connell and Jude
Dear Peter and Jade,
It is a rare thing to have one's expectations so entirely exceeded by the experience. In Don’s case the expectations were modest but he was blown away. In Nicole’s case her expectations were very high- and she was still blown away! A simple sailing adventure became a world of discovery and a gastronomic journey that we believe will not be outdone, at least until we see you next. Thank you ever so much for all of the caring detail.
-Don and Nicole North Vancouver, Canada
Thank you so much Jade and Peter for the the amazing trip. The food was beyond amazing the entire time and it was all an unforgettable trip. Definitely one of my most memorable trips. thank you so much for everything!

A truly perfect family vacation! Highly recommend a trip on Xenia 50 with Jade and Peter, it cannot be topped!"
Susan and Richard Russel
Our trip was great on Xenia50. The crew, Peter and Jade, were really super, with Peter navigating us to beautiful snorkeling locations and mixing up great cocktails, and Jade cooking amazing meals 3 times a day. The boat, while 2 years old, looks brand new and worked really well for our group. Finally made it to Anegada and loved the beaches and lobster there. Xenia50 and crew should definitely be on your highly recommended list of charterers.
Thank you for a great holiday.
Reed & Leslie
Our Experience aboard the Xenia 50 has far exceeded our expectations! the service and hospitality the Jade and Peter showered us with far and wide was impeccable!

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. We had an AMAZING time! Peter and Jade are truly truly truly fantastic. The boat was amazing and the food and service were better than we ever could have imagined. Jade (with the occasional Peter meal butting in on her turf) made the most amazing food. Super fresh, super delicious, changed up everything pretty much every day. We never wanted for anything, they had a general outline of a plan for each day and would give us the rundown and ask us what we thought and if there's anything we'd want to change or do more of. Peter was a great captain as he made sure the boat was always positioned in the best possible area for the least amount of waves and swell in the different coves. They were super gracious and the level of service was off the charts. We really can't say enough about the trip and would love to submit whatever review we can.
What an amazing week. Peter and Jade went above and beyond for my three children and me. Thank you for such a memorable adventure. The trip of a lifetime! ❤️ the Taylors

Once again, thank you very much for the fantastic trip. We wish we had more time.
This trip was truly the gem of the fam trip. Nobody was expecting such a beautiful boat, a friendly crew and a superb chef. Personally, the cold soup of avocado and cucumber was my favorite meal in the entire week!
The feedback from everybody was spectacular. They were very picky checking how clean Xenia was. Also, highlighted the quality of the amenities, the orchids in the bathroom, the customer service, all snorkel equipments new and the detail of the final and amazing gifts.
Once again, many thank you for the amazing day!
Hi Pete & Jade,
Thank you again for lunch - which was absolutely outstanding!
I just wanted to say THANK YOU for a terrific lunch on Friday. It's was over the top delicious with a wonderful presentation. Loved the wine too :-)
Thank you both for an excellent lunch, I thoroughly enjoyed it especially the lobster starter.
Have a great summer.
All the best,
Hi Jade & Peter
I just wanted to thank you both so much for inviting me for lunch on Saturday. It was absolutely delicious and I was blown away by the flavours of a well-balanced meal. The chicken with preserved lemon was incredible as was the raddish and fennel salad. It was all beautifully presented and the clean plates of all guests said it all!
Thank you for making me feel so welcome.
Dear Jade and Pete
Thank you so much for the hospitality on Xenia last weekend. Susan and I enjoyed lunch very much.
Looking at the image below, seems others did as well.
