Karen & Allan (Toronto, Canada) August 2012
Bob & Maggie- We can't say enough about how wonderful the entire week was. I think we'll all agree that it was the best family vacation EVER! We were completely relaxed from day 1 and our biggest regret is not being able to stay with you for another week. Switching from half board to full board was the best decision we made! You are a wonderful cook and host, Maggie. We loved not knowing exactly where, when and what we were doing, yet every moment was wonderful. We felt completely safe and well cared for at every moment. The kids had a blast, Tori and I felt relaxed and carefree and even just sitting on the boat just watching the waves roll by were some of the best moments of the trip and will be remembered fondly. And on top of all that relaxing we went tubing, snorkeling, exploring, cave diving, rock climbing, sailing, boating, singing, dancing, star gazing, swimming and a ton more. We had a ton of "special finds" too! Whale, dolphin, octopus, shark (!), turtle, manta ray! Thanks again Bob & Maggie. You really are the best captains we ever could have hoped for. We love you guys!

I had a wonderful time on your boat. You both are people persons and are very kind and patient with children. Bob, thanks for showing us all the great sights of the Virgin Islands. Your personal dive tour of The Baths was spectacular! Maggie, you couldn't have been nicer and the food couldn't have been better. You are a kind soul and I feel fortunate that I met you. Best of luck to you both.
We so enjoyed your companionship this week. You both are fun-loving, so flexible and were so kind and patient with our kids. We hope to see you in Park City one of these days!
Dear Maggie & Bob, Thank you for playing in the pool with me, snorkeling at the caves and teaching me how to play guitar. I love Maggie's cookies.
Bridget, age 6 (Utah)
This was the best vacation EVER! Maggie's food was amazing & I will never have anything like it. Bob was always so kind letting us help drive the boat. The places we went to snorkel, hike, swim, etc, was priceless and I could not have asked for more. Thank you so much Maggie & Bob.
Grace, age 11 (Utah)
Best vacation ever. I will never forget this. Maggie your food was the best. Bob, thanks for teaching me the guitar. It is so fun. Thank you guys so much.
Caroline, age 9 (Utah)
Maggie the Queen of cuisine
Bob, the sailor pristine
to make the sail a dream
They showed us islands, beaches, snorkeling reef
Bays of many names and even lighted tarpon at night
Conversations at meals and on sails
ranged from children, jobs, life's ups and downs
to constellations, art, and the art of treating all as equals
Thanks for a week of heaven on earth
with music accompanying us along the way
Via CDs, guitar, harmonica and percussion
or every invention by Erik
You can get almost everything you want
at Bob & Maggie's restaurant (and sail charter)
Bill & Marie (North Carolina)
We sailed the pristine Silver Moon
One co-pilot could mimic a loon
And the other could strum some and croon
with the drummer (which proved quite a boon!)
And our trio could carry a tune
We met not a single typhoon
And the sun shone each bright afternoon.
Saw Orion, the Crux, and the moon
'Round the coral reefs always were strewn
Fish of colors from blue to maroon
We found that surprisingly soon,.
Awesome food made our stomachs balloon
And now we will diet through June!
At the risk of sounding jejeune
We thank you for all you have "shewn"
(sice no one ate prune, fought a baboon, or formed a platoon - though I almost fell into a swoon - then I've run out of "oons!"
Captain Bob & Maggie, thanks for a fabulous vacation! Visit us anytime!
love Natasha & Erik (North Carolina)
Dear Bob & Maggie, Thank you so much for having us on your boat. I had a great time tubing and snorkeling for the first time. Thanks again for making my trip to the Virgin Islands a blast.
Ben, age 11 (New York City)
Thank you Bob and Maggie for the most relaxing 3-day vacation I can remember. Your warmth and good food, able helmsmanship and comic banter are epic! We look forward to returning for a longer trip!
Lisa (New York City)
Captain Bob & Maggie - what a wonderful week you have delivered for my family and I. The entire trip exceeded my expectations. The kids will have this memory for a lifetime. The ease of which you both provided service with a smile not only impressed me as a customer, but made me want to re-double my efforts as being of service to others. I was impressed with you professionalism, humor and willingness to teach. I felt like I was in a floating school. Not just about sailing, but lessons for life. Bob, your calm demeanor combined with a competitive nature of a racer taught me a lot about how to lead a team: Think, communicate, act. Maggie, you were not just a wonderful cook, but a flawless host. I hope I can be of service to others as effortlessly as you do. Food was wonderful and the overall experience, perfect. I again want to thank you for sharing this time with my family and myself. I will not forget either of you or the lessons and experiences I am taking from this trip. I leave with not just memories, but for better, I leave with wonderful new friends. If you ever need anything, call and I will be there. I look forward to our next visit. Fair Winds my friends!
What a trip! Such a wonderful treat a week in "Paradise" cannot be beat! All the sights - the azure seas bordered by beautiful palm trees. The hospitality and great meals make this vacation a deal of deals! Memories of meaning, coffee, hors d'eouvres, at sunset, snorkeling by days… will remain with us always! Life aboard the Silver Moon ends too quickly, WAY TOO SOON!
Yvette and Dave
Dear Bob & Maggie - I came into this vacation with pretty high expectations and you exceeded them at every level. The food, the fun and the sights were all incredible. Truly a wonderful vacation - in fact, the best ever. Looking forward to many more years of fun together!
Dave & Betty (Connecticut)
Dear Maggie and Bob,
Thank you so much for taking such good care of us! No need went unattended. You guys are an amazing team of hosts, entertainers, tour guides and yachtsmen. We loved the snorkeling and adventuring, seeing all the amazing natural sights and wildlife, exploring different islands and beaches and enjoying delightful meals on board. You both have a nice way of going with the flow and making perfection seem easy and relaxed. Thanks again for taking such good care of us, all agreed it was a top vacation and a must repeat.

Dear Capt. Bob & Maggie - When a vacation feels timeless, you know it's been wonderful. Enjoying the beauty of BVI, being chased away by Qatari yacht security, playing guitar and singing with Bob, eating lobster on Anegada, flying over the reefs and fishing with Kevin – these will all be part of family lore and the stories will probably be (gasp!) exaggerated just a it over time. Sailing with two "around-the-world" sailors who have taught us, laughed at and with us, spoiled us with phenomenal food and fellowship. It just doesn't get any better. We hope you'll come to Birmingham and let us spoil you a bit. Or meet at Alta for a few powder runs. Or both. Can't wait to sail with you again.

Dear Captain Bob & Maggie
Just a note to thank you for a wonderful time aboard Silver Moon. The food, the fun, the relaxation was brilliant. The sail to Anegada was breath taking and the lobsters and bone fishing with Kevin, a highlight of the trip. Already we miss our cozy cabin, reading books on the tramp under the giant awning, and snorkeling from the bow stairs. And we'll never forget Maggie's galley magic. The locally caught fish dinner followed by pecan pie… or waking up to the smell of freshly baked bread. We couldn't have asked for a better time away, or a more fun and hospitable crew. Thank you again for a fantastic time. We look forward to a return trip in 2012!
Sofia & Sean, Mallorca Spain
Dear Captain Bob & Maggie
A quick note to thank you for a wonderful time aboard! The sailing, hospitality, fun, music, and delicious meals were outstanding! You definitely know how to put us all at ease on the water. I've never been more relaxed. Ben loved taking the helm and Teddy was over the moon about the fishing. We'll be recommending you to all our friends, so be prepared for a busy season!
The Nortons, Maine
Dear Captain Bob & Maggie
The 700-mile sail from Bermuda was amazing. It gave me such an appreciation for all your sea time and the oceans you crossed during you circumnavigation. I was certainly glad of your expertise on my first big offshore trip. And even in the rolling seas we ate like kings! I will never for get the incredible sunsets, night skies full of stars, freighter ships passing in the night. It all was incredible. Thank you for a truly memorable adventure on the high seas.
