There are family vacations, and then there are life adventures that are etched to memory forever. This week has been both. From the moment we set sail on Freebird, to the incredible sea life, bluest waters ever, kayaking to sand bars, and much savored meals, we thank you both for this life event.

29th March - 2nd April, 2017 ~ The Most Beautiful Place!
Dear Peter,
Thank you so much for a wonderful birthday/anniversary celebration. This is the most beautiful place we have ever seen. Ya'll have been the most gracious hosts. Thank you for turning your boat over to us. We have made so many memories: from the slow ride on the water, relaxing, to the entertaining people at the Flip Flop beach. The food was absolutely amazing! We will be back, anxiously awaiting a cook book! Maybe one day we will meet you on our own boats and sail together! Lots of love to you!
Jere and Laurie, Clay and Judy

February 18-25, 2017 ~ Honeymoon Dreams!
We have had a most wonderful time with you and Bella and your Freebird. Our honeymoon could not have been more fitting to our dreams and desires. The sailing, the snorkeling, the amazing waters! Who knew that there were so many shades of blue? What incredible creatures we have seen! The sea turtles, the lobster, the conch, the rays, the iguanas, and swimming pigs!?! And way too many fishes to keep count. And amazing little Bella on board!

We had every confidence in Peter's captaining skills. And he always had us anchored in the right place for each new adventure. What a great dive guide!

What fantastic meals we have had!! Fresh caught lobster and conch, ribs, lamb, and seafood quesadillas. And always a glass of wine, a cold beer, or a Dark and Stormy at the right moment.

What a dream come true for us! Thank you for sharing your life stories. Thank you for introducing us to the spirit of the Bahamas and the cruising way of life.

We will be back! No doubts! We will be back!
Michelle & Bob , Canandaigua, New York

August 6-12, 2016 ~ Exumas ~ Amazing Adventures!
Our daughter's fascination with the swimming pigs brought us to the Exumas. From the moment we set foot on Freebird, it was like we were staying with family. Our kids were entertained the entire week from sting rays to exciting drift dives to afternoon naps on the trampoline. We had a week full of amazing adventures and much-needed family time. Your knowledge of the area is second to none! We loved eating fresh caught conch and lobster. And the swimming pigs were SO MUCH FUN!
Thank you for a week full of adventure and fun!
Steve, Wendy, Talya, and Landon

Our adventures and itinerary:
Day 1, Fed tame stingrays and free-dived the blue hole in Georgetown.
Day 2: Feeding of the swimming pigs at Glass Cay, free-dived 2 blue holes at Sugar Cay, cast-line fishing off stern of Freebird.
Day 3: Caught a big fish while trolling en route offshore. Drift-dived Rat Cay, collected conch and sea biscuits off the bottom, Williams Cay paddle-boarding.
Day 4: Rudder Cut drift-dived grotto (3 turtles, 2 sharks, 1 cuda sighting!), speared 2 lobsters, and free-dived underwater piano with mermaid at David Copperfield's island.
Day 5: Lee Stocking drift dive, speared 2 lobsters, fed wild iguanas, snorkeled reef.
Day 6: Children's Bay overnight, beach time at Boysey Cay geyser, snorkeled wreck in shallow water and Square Rock (1 turtle, 3 stingrays)

March 30 - April 6, 2016
Words cannot express how wonderful this week has been. You are truly beautiful people in every sense. The knowledge you have of sailing is so very impressive. We have felt safe and comfortable the entire time. I am a drift diver for the rest of my life! I really could get used to this. So many things will be in our minds for years to come. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Love, Ray, Tammie and Bensyn

March 20 - 26, 2016
Dear Peter,
Thank you for a wonderful week of adventure and relaxation aboard Freebird! You all made us feel welcome, at home and completely spoiled. We enjoyed too many thrilling and unique experiences to fully recount - one drift dive after another over glorious fish filled reefs, snorkeling in caves, watching the nurse sharks at Staniel Cay Yacht club, feeding the wild pigs and iguanas, walking isolated beaches, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, quiet anchorages, delicious cooking, watching Bella balance atop the bow of the dinghy as we sped across the water and hearing of your inspiring excursions around the globe.

Spending this week with you has changed our definition of what is possible to expect from 'quality of life'. What a beautiful life you have here. Thank you so very much for sharing it and yourselves with us!
Love, Heidi, Peter and PD

Jan. 27 - Feb. 5, 2016 – Exumas
Relaxing, carefree, adventurous, fun, interesting, so many positive words are needed to describe our fantastic week aboard Freebird with Peter.

Peter's attention to safety and knowledge of his boat & seas made us feel at ease and without concern the whole trip. The healthy and yummie food was a real surprise .. cracked conch, coconut cream pie, salads galore ...

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for sharing passion and enthusiasm for the life on the seas and a little glimpse of how the Happy People live!

Warm Hugs,
Janine and Dave

Swish was previously owned and operated by Peter's son Warren, so the comments below are related to Captain Warren:

April 24-29, 2016 Incredible Experience

From travel agent:

They had an AMAZING time and I think a few of their moments on the catamaran will be seared into their travel memory bank as such. They were so impressed with the captain and crew’s attention, the quality of the food, and especially the unique experience of eating conch for the first time). It was an incredible experience for them. Please extend my personal thanks to the crew for attending to their needs and for showing them such a good time.

30th Wedding Anniversary Charter - Nov 2015
Overall, how would you describe your charter? 
Very Good. 
Was the crew professional, congenial, and accommodating? Absolutely. Warren was knowledgeable and focused on trying to accommodate. Louise was almost always cooking up first rate meals while also navigating the nuances of our personal likes and dis-likes. 
Was the yacht clean and well maintained? 
Yes, Swish was beautiful boat and the Staterooms, the Galley and the Saloon were all clean and ready for their new guests when we arrived.
How did you find the quality and presentation of the meals? Outstanding, the food and the presentation showed pride and skill.
Additional comments
The boat was very nice...Warren and Louise were great. Louise is a very good cook..No reason to be worried about her culinary skills. Her meals were excellent right down to the presentation of the food. 
 18-25 August 2015 Exumas
Warren, I'd like to share with you the fact that my client called me today gushing about his time with you guys on Swish.
