Comments from guests that have chartered with Chris and Lida
Trip Advisor Review of Chris and Lida
From the very beginning Painkiller and conference about the trip, Chris and Lida were superb hosts to our family on our anniversary trip. Chris was attentive to our input on where we wanted to go in the BVIs and also made suggestions that were special and not stops we had otherwise considered. Lida was amazing in her delivery of three extraordinary and different meals every day along with beautiful tasty appetizers each late afternoon before amazing dinners. We had a birthday while on board and Chris and Lida went out of their way to make that day special complete with a freshly baked birthday cake, birthday banners and music and an amazing sea bass dinner. Have already talked up the trip with a number of landlubbers back home.

We had high hopes that this trip would be a great experience - and honestly the trip exceeded anything we could have imagined. The boat was immaculate and very comfortable, and the crew quickly felt like dear friends (shout out to Chris and Lida - twenty somethings from S. Africa who were fun and energetic - providing some of the best meals we've ever had, were engaging and so attentive to whatever we wanted to try and do, and took us to many great locations throughout the Virgin Islands). With kids from 18 to 25 - we did plenty of water sports, from tubing and wake boarding - to riding on Sea Bobs and Efoils - and were having so much fun we even booked an extra night while on board - truly the best family vacation we've ever taken.
June 2023 BVI
Our family had the trip of a lifetime on Sip Sip this past June. We arrived by dingy to rum punches on the stern, served with a smile by Lida. Our luggage was immediately whisked away. Captain Chris took us all on a tour of the boat. The boat has a sleek and modern vibe that makes it feel like a floating, spa oasis. We slept in a queen cabin and it was the most comfortable charter bed I’ve ever slept on. The bathrooms are enormous and there is plenty of storage for a weeks worth of clothes and necessities. Our son slept in the bunk room with a friend and it was perfect for them.
Lida served up a gourmet breakfast every morning and incredible dinners each evening. Most of our lunches were spent at beach restaurants on the different islands. We had some complicated food requests on this trip and Leda made sure that my husband had the correct food for each meal and made them delicious.
Chris and Lida are expert sailors, hosts and staff (staff wrong word?). They made the vacation by offering suggestions as to locations to stop and explore and providing us with the space we needed to relax when under sail. The boat itself has many areas to spread out and read, sunbathe, or even work ( if you have to!).
The highlight for the parents and the kids were the “toys” on board. Each day we would find a place to snorkel, SeaBob, hydrofoil, paddle board and dingy. We know from experience that some yacht charters charge extra for these perks but they are included on Sip Sip which is fantastic.
The BVI’s are the best family vacation destination and when you explore it on Sip Sip you’re going to make memories for a lifetime!

The cruise was really top-notch: the boat was very well maintained, spotless, and you couldn't tell it was old enough.
As for the crew, as you said, they were fantastic.
They're lovely, very professional, very keen to do well and make sure everyone has a good time. We will be. Delighted to see them again if we return to the region!
