We've dreamed of a yachting vacation for years and I finally pulled the trigger, we couldn't be happier.
From the moment we stepped on Perpetual Blue we were amazed at the level of detail Cap Jake and Chef T gave us. Jake was a rock star captain the food was amazing.
Fabulous food, delicious cocktails, water bean bags, sunsets, and finding great spots every day - all made us feel so special!
Many many thanks!
