August 2019 Grenadines
Roland, Vanessa and Hugh,
To quote Hugh - our week with you has been fantastic!!
Thank you very much for all that you each did to make our stay with you truly exceptional. Your attention to detail and desire to meet our wants and needs was amazing.
We loved every meal, snorkel, dive and sail! We will miss you & our fun conversations very much! We hope to be back soon! If you are ever in California - please visit us, we'd love to have you.

P.S. Our tip and time with you exceeded our expectations in every way. Thank you for everything.
P.P.S. We love having matching Tobago Cays shirts with you - and will remember Callista fondly the next time we play hearts.
Dear Roland, Vanessa and Hugh,
You have allowed us to have the most special, memorable vacation aboard the Callista with your dedication, thoughtfulness, skill and lovely personalities and i couldn't be more grateful. We have enjoyed the company, the delicious meals and the tending to our wants and needs every step of this trip. Antigua and the Callista are amazing but they would not be the same without you.
With love and gratitude, Tina
Roland, Vanessa and Hugh,
Thank you so much for an amazing week on the boat. You all handled us very well and you did a very good job at keeping us happy and prepared. Thank you so much for all you have done for us. John
Dear Roland, Vanessa & Hugh,
Thank you so much for the most amazing trip! This was my first time on a boat and I loved it. You are all so wonderful and I enjoyed getting to know you. Thank you for taking care of us, for all the amazing meals, for taking us places and sharing your stories. I will forever remember this trip. I wish you all well and hope to see you again some day. Jody
Roland, Vanessa & Hugh,
Thank you very much for showing us around Antigua. You were all very nice and helpful and I wish you all well. One of the best vacations I've had in a while! Thanks so much. Jesse
Roland & Vanessa were absolutely amazing! The deck hand, Hugh, was the most incredible 20 yr old I have met.
They were a great team to dive with and handled our 5 divers flawlessly. The sea life was as if they called and appeared - sharks, rays, lobster, barracuda, etc.
The food was outstanding!
I can’t say enough about this crew. I just wish they had a 10pax for our growing family when we return! We would love to sail with them again.
I think next time we would be looking towards St Vincent and the Grenadines.
Thank you for everything!!!
The crew was the highlight of our charter. We had to switch boats unexpectantly with one week in advance and it went smoothly. The cuisine was great, water sports were fun, and all three of the crew were great - nice, knowledgeable, patient!
Having done numerous charters over the past 20 years I must say Callista and her crew are tops!!! This is a wonderful catamaran with an outstanding captain, chef, and first mate. Roland, Vanessa, and Hugh went out of their way to make our trip enjoyable in every possible way. Whether it was scuba diving/beach excursions/snorkeling/or adapting to strict dietary needs the crew of Callista outperformed every request with ease and professionalism......The food and service were outstanding.

Christmas week 2018
Callista, the fabulous crew and the BVI were fantastic.
Captain Roland, his fantastic wife/chef/dive master and above all person Vanessa and young Hugh were nothing less than fantastic.
They had everything we wanted before sailing, we went everywhere we wanted to go, we did everything we wanted to do, we ate like Kings and never had nothing wrong.
Callista is in impecable shape and condition and very well equipped.
We scuba dived, wake boarded, paddle boarded, kayaked, snorkeled, water skied, fished, rented scooters and exchanged Christmas presents. What more can you ask for?
Please share my note with the crew, the owner and thank you for your recommendation.
Best regards and Happy New Year
Thanksgiving week 2018
Today is such a blue day for us!! We had the best time but are so sad our fun sailing charter is over! We honestly had the most incredible week with Roland, Vanessa and Hugh aboard Callista! They went out of their way to make us feel at home and comfortable and would not let us lift a finger. They took us to the most beautiful snorkeling spots and showed us beautiful remote beaches and anchoring spots!! Roland introduced Bruce, Graham, Tess and Bryn to diving as PADI certified, and also arranged for us to go Conch and lobster hunting with a guide. Both were very cool experiences!
Our favorite spot was probably Anegada, Jost Van Dyke and Lee Bay! On Bruce’s Birthday, The crew decorated with signs, balloons, and hats and Vanessa prepared the most amazing surf and turf dinner and delicious vanilla cake with marshmallow filling for dessert. We got to relax and enjoy our family and also enjoy the company of our amazing crew!

Our week sailing with Roland and Vanessa throughout the BVIs was a unique and fantastic experience. Together, they are a skilled captain, gourmet chef, inn-keeper, dive master, tour guide, trip planner, bar tender, and just plain fun to be around. They did all this with impressive skill and energy and went out of their way to make sure we were having fun every minute .....which we did! It was a vacation not to be forgotten.

Sailing the BVI's has been a dream for me for years. We feel so blessed to have chartered Amazing Lady. She is new and so gorgeous and the photos do not give justice to the space and comfort on board. Then the crew!!! Wow!! Two thumbs up to Roland and Vanessa for taking such good care of us!! They understood our needs and wants and made everything happen that we had wished for. Nothing was left out. They are attentive, helpful and experts at what they do. Thanks guys for helping make this dream come true in such a fantastic way!! Best wishes and lots of love from us! John, Nina and boys �
