This is our second time out with Captain Bob having had a great time the first go round. We love the boat and Bob's an experienced, no nonsense kind of guy. It's not a CAT which is important for us because it's a true sailing experience. We sailed down to Cooper Island for lunch and a quick snorkel trip. Almost... More

We did a half day sail around Virgin Gorda. The boat was absolutely gorgeous, and the trip went overall well. Our Captain, Bob, who owned the boat, appeared at times to be irritated and impatient with us, but in general was quite accommodating to our needs, and the day was a big success. If you do use Bravura, my suggestion... More

One of our friends had arranged for a day with Captain Bob many months in advance for the day our cruise ship stopped at Virgin Gorda. Two nights before we were to arrive she received an email saying his sails weren't working properly but that we could still go using the motor. She answered that we'd go anyway. The next... More

Captain Bob gave us a great private day sail for our honeymoon. For what we thought was a very reasonable price, he picked us up at our resort on Scrub Island, let us plan the day (though we asked for his recommendations, being our first time in the BVI), made us a fabulous lunch while we took his tender to...

There are so many details to provide on this awful half day sail trip but I am not able to post. Bottom line Captain Bob was one of the rudest, most unfriendly individuals I have ever come across in my travels. If you have a large group or young children this is definitely NOT the boat for you. Completely un-accommodating... More

My husband and I came to Virgin Gorda for our honeymoon. He found Sail Bravura online and this was one of the bigger activities of our trip - Captain Bob did not let us down. We had a great time - the boat is gorgeous, Bob is a great cook, and the different islands we hopped around were perfect for... More

My wife and I brought our two sons (18 and 22) on a "join in" sail aboard the Bravura. The boat is beautiful and it's amazing to be under sail in the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Cooper island is tiny but has great snorkeling and a fun beach bar. The real surprise of the trip was the incredible lunch Captain... More

The gang went back to the BVI and 4 of us returned for an all day sail with Captain Bob and the Bravura (last year it was only a partial day, and we had to have more!) A grand day for sailing on the Sir Francis Drake Channel to Cooper Island where we anchored, snorkeled before a gourmet lunch. Captain... More

We were looking forward to a trip out on the water and were assured by captain bob that the boat was suitable for young children. That couldn't have been further from the truth. The boat itself has barely any seating and no shade. We were not greeted or helped by bob on arrival to the boat. There was no introduction... More
