Laid Back Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was great staying aboard the M/V Friendship. Capt. Jimmy is very accommodating......whatever you want or need. We stayed there at the same time as his son, Chris, was visiting so he was our guide on our scuba dives. Chris was just as easygoing as his dad and we enjoyed our dives with him. If you are looking for a little more adventure than your routine hotel vacation, this is the place to stay. You can get away from crowds on the island or choose to join them, Jimmy will drop you off and pick you up later. Jimmy actually showed us around Frenchtown the first evening (and everyone does seem to know him and his trusty mate, Brady). We had a great time. Thank you Jimmy. -- Ray&Judy

The boat was great and the hosts were even greater.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on the Friendship. Captain Jimmy and his faithful first mate Brady were perfect hosts. Jimmy prepared hearty, delicious breakfasts for us and was eager to make our stay stress free and more importantly, a real blast. He went out of his way to ensure we had a good time. Brady ,his four- legged "first-mate" is a real character and every bit the seaman as Captain Jimmy. Jumping off the roof of the Friendship was encouraged and a highlight of our stay.

Staying aboard Friendship was fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Captain Jimmy is a friendly, kind & generous host. He was always happy to give us rides to St Thomas & Water Island anytime we needed. He makes delicious banana pancakes and has the best dog - Brady - who swam with me a few times.

Cheers,

Michelle
