Mac and I wanted to send you a quick note thanking you again for a fabulous week touring the BVI’s with you and your awesome crew. It was the vacation of a lifetime and one we will always treasure. I am a veteran cruiser and was very apprehensive about a catamaran trip, but it was PERFECTION! Just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed the adventure and that we are looking forward to going again – sooner than later. The Avalon is spectacular! She is beautifully decorated and so spacious. It was wonderful having such abundant outside space to enjoy the glorious views. It is obvious that Avalon is well taken care of and very loved. Each time we came in to a cove, others were in awe. Not only were we the largest catamaran, but definitely the most beautiful. What an unbelievable boat! Captain Alex, you made everyone feel at home from the moment we stepped onboard. Your knowledge and expertise in your job was apparent in every aspect of our trip. Your gentle smile put each one of us at ease and made sure that we were having fun. Your ability to share information, both fun and historical, made island hopping so much fun. It was fascinating that we always found “a front row spot,” no matter where we went. You made certain that we were comfortable and were entertained, both on and off the boat. You encouraged us to stretch our comfort levels and enjoy the amenities – and that was a stretch for me. I will never forget being pulled at “slow” speed (your words) round and round the cove and later flying up in the sky on the rope swing. Wow! So much fun! And, you make a mean painkiller!  Carla, you are an amazing talent! Not only are you lovely, but you are extraordinary in the galley. Our meals and wine choices were delicious and the food presentation was incredible. Your attention to every detail – whether it was our food allergies or just our own personal preferences – was so appreciated. You made each meal – and cocktail hour- an event that we looked forward to each day. You know how much we loved your cookies and your willingness to share your scrumptious recipes was so kind. You are such an asset to your family and to the Avalon. Bea, you made meal time so much fun. Your sweet smile and willingness to always please made each meal extra special. I will never forget your offering me “orange ju-ice” each morning and how you remembered our specific likes and dislikes. Your personality and ability to joke along with us made dining such a pleasure. We also appreciate how clean and organized you kept our rooms. That was quite the undertaking! Thank you for being so kind and helpful. Again, we appreciate your many acts of kindness and for putting up with our craziness during our week on the Avalon. Thank you for making this week a special celebration and for giving us a lasting memory of “I’m on the boat!” Best wishes and we look forward to seeing you again. Until then…….. With love, – Susan and Mac

I have had a wonderful week. We have been thoroughly spoiled. Alex, Carla, and Bea provide the perfect environment you enjoy the BVI, especially first-timers in this part of the world. We would certainly recommend them to all of our friends. Sadly we are on the last night. Perfect hosts, perfect food. This has been a spectacular trip.

As much as we loved our first trip to the BVI, this was by far several levels above that, we could not have made a better choice than Alex and Carla. Absolutely the best crew in the BVI, Carla’s meals were amazing and Alex is just a crazy SOB, perfect for our group. The thing that was evident from the start is how attentive they both are to making sure you have a great time, which we did in spades. We loved their approach to making our trip memorable, the itinerary was perfect, spent days at beautiful beaches and then Alex would run the girls to shore for shopping expeditions then come back and entertain the boys with watersports or fishing. They worked their butts off, constantly making us cocktails and spoiling us. The boat was very well maintained and we had no problems whatsoever, as we sailed to different locations; Alex provided commentary on the islands and points of interest, he’s awesome. They both made us feel like family, and I know I came away with a deeper respect for how much work is involved in taking care of 8 guests for a week. If you can’t tell by now, we had an amazing trip with these two and only way I would come back is with Alex and Carla. I very much appreciate all you did to simplify the process. Hope to see ya’ll again in the near future. Thanks again for a great trip. Cheers

Thanks for your help in setting up this trip. I really can’t recommend the Alex & Carla enough. Here is a brief review: Our family, including 2 grandparents and 2 grandchildren ages 7 and 9, enjoyed a week on the boat. If you are considering booking, don’t hesitate. The yacht, the crew, the dining, and the itinerary were all top notch. The boat is luxurious and well-maintained. Our family has done charters in the past, but this was a whole new level. The living area, the cabins, the bathrooms, etc are all incredibly nice and everything looks pristine and new. It’s like a floating Four Seasons, which is really an achievement considering the constant maintenance required to keep a yacht that size in top shape. Alex and Carla are an outstanding crew. They catered to our every need, and they can be very interactive or they can give you more privacy depending on the style of service you prefer. They designed the perfect itinerary based on what we wanted to experience in the BVI. Alex is an experienced sailor, and he knows just about everything there is to know about every island in the BVI. He’s great with kids, and he helped us play a hilarious April Fool’s day prank on our boys. Alex also makes the best Pina Coladas ever, so don’t miss out on that. Carla is an amazing chef, and she really went above and beyond catering to a group containing several picky eaters. My parents are gluten free and dairy free, and my children extremely picky about what they eat. To make things more complicated, my wife and I are adventuresome eaters. Somehow Carla managed to make everyone happy, which would normally require going to 3 different restaurants. And the meals were exceptional —including artistic presentation and delicious deserts. Carla also made awesome snacks, which were perfect after a swim, snorkel, hike, or paddle. In summary, the yacht, the crew, and the experience were all outstanding. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a cruise in the BVI or anywhere else Alex and Carla will take you. Thanks

CAPTAIN ALEX & CHEF/FIRST MATE CARLA MULDER

Alex loves to be on the ocean and he shares his passion with anyone who sets foot on Bagheera. His expertise in sailing is coupled with a detailed understanding of the Caribbean Islands and knowledge of little known beautiful spots. Sailing is second nature to Alex. He learned to sail at the age of 6 and as a teenager he raced across the Atlantic on, a 74-foot ketch. This set the course of his career (as a captain). He has sailed over 260 000 miles including 15 ocean crossings on a variety of vessels. For 12 years, Alex ran a 140’ Topsail Schooner on a first class private charter. Alex holds a MCA/RYA Master Ocean Certification (commercially endorsed) PADI Advanced Open Water Dive Certification and has extensive knowledge of not only what makes yachts run well but also what makes vacations fun with lasting lifetime memories. He is experienced, friendly, fun and committed to first class service and always “at your service”.

Together Alex and Carla represent over 20 years in the charter business and over 10 years in high-end culinary service.  Carla’s culinary creations reflect her dynamic personality and joy for connecting with people.  Her menu offers mouth-watering delights from around the world, prepared from fresh local products and presented with a unique flair. She skillfully pairs each plate with a wine to ensure a well-rounded dining experience.  Carla has always loved to cook, helping out in restaurants in her youth back in Italy. Her creations are part Italian home cooking and fine French dining contrasted with exotic Thai cuisine. Her passion for food led her to obtain her formal training at Ashburton Culinary College, London England.  Before meeting Alex, Carla worked on a number of superyachts in Europe where she hosted the famous, wealthy and business elite. Carla is a lifelong learner, continuously challenging herself to broaden her spectrum of food. To this end she has expanded her scrumptious repertoire with specialist courses in Vegan food, Indian cuisine, and Kosher considerations. She thrills her guests’ pallets with sophisticated nutritious foods with a unique twist creating a fusion of geography or a juxtaposition of traditional and modern.

Alex and Carla are joined by a stewardess for charters of 7 or more guests.
