CruiseNautic is a Trip of a Lifetime!
If our family could give Kate and Cyrus (your CruiseNautic crew) a 6 out of 5 we would! Our family of 6 spent an incredible week with Kate and Cyrus and their puppy Coco over winter break cruising the BVIs.

Their Boat. It's an absolutely gorgeous brand new 42 foot catamaran with plenty of places to relax, soak up the sun, read a book and enjoy mealtime with the family.

The Food. Amazing! Kate and Cyrus provide 3 creative and delicious meals a day including Cyrus's special baked goods (breads, cookies, pies, muffins and more!).

The Service. Kate and Cyrus are so incredibly accommodating and never stopped asking if we needed or wanted anything. They make the Fours Seasons staff seem almost average.

The Trip. It was all expertly planned out and we felt so at ease with how professional and safe Kate and Cyrus are with the boat. They took us to such great spots where we could use the paddle boards, kayak and snorkel gear right from the boat.

If you've ever considered doing this type of trip, reach out to CruiseNautic, you won't be regret it.

Brian U. | Trip Advisor ReviewNorthbrook, Illinois

With the recent events of the day, it has given me time to reflect and to realize that my recent travel was not only amazing but is a key part to helping me through the crazy times as it re-energized my soul, reconnected me to the world, and today, just makes me smile.

This particular travel was an 8-day cruise on a magnificent catamaran originated in the Virgin Islands / St. Thomas with our captains, crew, hosts, and quickly, friends, Cyrus, Kate, and Cocoa, and travel buds, Marshall and Naomi. As the heart and soul of CruiseNautic, Cyrus, Kate, and Cocoa are incredible at making the adventure YOUR adventure.

It started even before getting to the boat as Kate reached out to discuss food, drink, and activity preferences, provided cruise tips, and even gave us step-by-step directions to the marina. On our travel day to St. Thomas, of course, our flight from Chicago was delayed setting up this trip to start off on a rocky start but Cyrus and Kate were pleasant, completely flexible, and stayed connected making sure we made it safely – all was good…just that our vacation started about 6 hours later than planned!

Arriving at the marina, I instantly knew the experience was first rate across the board. Cyrus greeted us, safely got us to the incredible vessel, and introduced us to our home for the next 8 days. The welcome drinks from Kate were a nice touch and, of course, every lick from Cocoa washed away my daily grind stress.

The vessel, its accommodations, and amenities were nothing but top-notch. I am not going to highlight all of them but what you see on the website is exactly what you get from beautiful and clean staterooms to extraordinary watersports equipment – check out their website for details - www.cruisenautic.com. The food…the drink…amazing, fresh, and easily exceeded our expectations – we never went to bed hungry and many times went to bed feeling quite good – great margaritas!

By the way, can I mention that we had the best sleep in years on this trip? Was it the gentle rocking of the boat, the fresh air, the comfy bed, or all of the above? Go on this trip and tell me what you think!

Each day was an adventure decided by us from sailing (Cyrus and Kate know the area like the back of their hand and like the pirates earlier eras, they had a treasure-trove of information about the islands, its culture, its traditions and customs, and its history), experiencing local culture such as visiting St. John and Virgin Islands National Park, sampling local cuisine with a visit to Foxy’s Taboo, daily snorkeling trips exploring caves/reefs and swimming with the beautiful fish and turtles, checking out the beaches, paddleboarding and floating with your friends (and Cocoa), enjoying movie night on the water (Cyrus and Kate have a large screen and projector for movies), and seeing boats and people from all over the world. It sounds like a lot of stuff and that it was exhausting but over 8 days and a crew that knows their stuff it was not – it was exactly the opposite for me…relaxing, stress-free, and just enjoyable. Don’t worry, we had plenty of time and room to read, nap, chat, laugh, and just think – of yeah, they had internet.

Remember, you can make the trip your own, Cyrus and Kate are that flexible, professional, and know how to make what you want happen – just ask.

I am sure some of you are asking, “the trip could not have been perfect, what was something that fell short?” – Hmmm, I would have to say that we had a couple days when the weather wasn’t perfect but it was nothing that a word search or book couldn’t take care of.

I would highly recommend CruiseNautic with Cyrus, Kate, and Cocoa as your next vacation – just don’t book the dates that I want for my next trip!

As I close, you probably noticed I never mentioned the conclusion of my travel journey, well, there is a reason for that because for me it is still continuing for as I sit at home today with a smile on my face, I just received a text from my new friend, Kate, asking how things are going in Chicago. It’s movie night here.

Support small business! Book a trip with CruiseNautic! Cheers!

Snorkeling, swimming and great food!
If you enjoy boating and water activities you should consider chartering a custom cruise with Kate and Cyrus @ CruiseNautic.com. They designed an itinerary specific to our group's interests and abilities. We relaxed as we sailed to tropical islands, swam snorkeled and kayaked in crystal clear aquamarine waters and visited unique island destinations.
Their catamaran was a beautiful new vessel with comfortable living spaces skillfully sailed by its owners.
Kate and Cyrus were wonderful hosts catering to our every need. Kate was constantly chopping fresh ingredients to make each meal an event. Cyrus wowed us nightly with his desserts.
We highly recommend chartering with CruiseNautic. It will be a vacation you will never forget!

Lorraine P. | Trip Advisor & Facebook ReviewHarrisville, Rhode Island

Sailing with Kate and Cyrus was an incredibly memorable experience. Every night we enjoyed another bay to snorkel- kayak and enjoy an wonderful sunset, eating wholesome, freshly made delicious dinners.
Everything was fabulous and therefore there are no complaints.
You do want to be comfortable on the water, during our day excursions we had fun but at times we bounced around.
Would I do this again - absolutely- would I recommend to friends- I have many times already. We will defiantly catch up with Kate and Cyrus in a different location.

Rhonda K | Trip Advisor ReviewOakville, Ontario

If you plan on sailing the British Virgin Islands and you DO NOT sail then CruiseNautic is the absolute best way to go!! Kate, Cyrus and their cutie dog Cocoa are a fabulous trio!!! They provided a fun, relaxing and safe itinerary for the 6 of us. My husband and I along with our 4 kids (17,17,15,14 yrs) had the most magnificent vacation. They were able to tailor the trip to our needs by providing a variety of activities (snorkeling, tubing, SUPing, kayaking, movie night and so much more). Both Kate and Cyrus are captains and chefs...there was never a lack of drinks nor food that’s for sure!! Wow can they cook!!!! This vacation has surpassed our expectations and we can’t wait to sail with CruiseNautic again!!!! I believe I forgot to mention they have a brand new luxurious catamaran!!! Extremely comfortable accommodations!!! We miss them already!! Definitely doing this again. ❤️

Melissa U. | Facebook ReviewNorthbrook, Illinois

Thanks again Kate and Cyrus for an amazing week cruising in the BVI we’ll never forget. Can’t recommend highly enough for families looking for a luxury holiday ‘out of the ordinary’. From jumping off the Willy T to swimming with turtles, every day was an adventure! Hopefully we’ll get to return soon.

Mike R. | Facebook ReviewEngland

I had a great time sailing with Kate and Cyrus 🙂 also really enjoyed the steak and the microbrew. Thanks you guys! Looking forward to more fun times like that in the future with you both.

Bob G. | Direct ReviewPrinceton, MN

Their experience and expertise put my mind at so much ease and I had the most amazing time on their boat, being that I've never been on this kind of boat before. When it comes to hospitality and meals they are an A+ plus plus. The food was was amazing and I feel like I have lifelong friends now. I would definitely recommend them to all of my family and friends.

We have a lot of heart for diving but did you know diving also has a big heart for your psychological and physical well being? Dive therapy studies show potentially life changing impacts on conditions including depression, anxiety, PTSD and even Autism to name just a few. What better way to provide yourself with self love than the therapeutic surround of diving in this colorful, peaceful playground. #divetherapy #selflove #divemoredivewell

Behold the first Supermoon of the year, where the moon is at it’s closest point to the earth, presenting 14% bigger and 30% brighter. This March moon is known under a variety of names, here are a few of the coined names and backgrounds.
.
Worm Moon - Originating from the Old Farmer’s Almanac and Northern American Native American Tribes, it refers to the earthworms that appear as the soil warms.
.
Crow Moon - Northern Native American tribes used this name as it referred to the cawing of the crows signaling the end of winter.
.
Sap or Sugar Moon - This name refers to the time to tap the Maple trees for syrup.
.
However you prefer to name it, it is one beautiful moon! #supermoon #wormmoon #Sailoutoftheordinary

Oh the amazing colors and patterns under the sea...especially the ever changing colors on guys like the Scrawling Filefish. In addition to changing color to closely match their surroundings, these guys can also stand their primary dorsal fin erect to lodge itself into a crack or crevice in the reef. #filefish #divesailcation #Sailoutoftheordinary

Aggressive foe or friend in hiding? The Moray Eel is a misunderstood friend. Most folks think the Moray is showing aggression as they open their mouth repeatedly showing that toothy grin. Well in fact they are making up for their small gills, maintaining flow of water and facilitating respiration  by gaping their mouths. Beyond their toothy grin is a second set of toothed jaws in their throat which they use to thrust forward, dragging their prey into their digestive track. Though Morays are not particularly aggressive unless threatened, don’t get too cozy. Their eye site is poor and they have been known to mistake fingers for food in feedings. #morayeel #factoftheday #divesailcation #sailoutoftheordinary
