Wow! This trip was definitely one for the books! As a mom, having my whole family together is such a treat but to be able to step on board and bot raise a finger took everything to the next level! Shawn, you, Victoria and Kendra are incredible! Thank you for such a beautiful trip! Thank you for the stories and memories. Thank you for being that perfect combo of “professional” but SO much fun. Thank you for your endless energy in taking care of us. Thank you for the amazing food and drinks. Thank you for letting us play our music loud and for letting the Brandt’s come on board all week! You were all the best hosts/hostesses and we appreciate everything so much!! It was epic!

A delightful experience! Great boat, super crew, lovely sailing. Just an all-around perfect three days-even the weather was terrific. Didn’t know Massachusetts could do that! Many thanks to Shawn and Vicky/Victoria for making our trip so enjoyable. We hope we will see you again!

Thank you so much for the amazing memories and adventures. We loved the boat and how kid friendly the entire trip was. Captain Shawn is such wealth of knowledge, Victoria is amazing at everything and Zack’s cooking was top-notch!
Hope to come aboard August Maverick again sometime! We loved all the activities, especially tubing, paddle board surfing, fishing, swimming, and the dance party!
Thank you so much!

"We sailed on the August Maverick in late February 2020 Captain Shawn Deweese and his crew, Victoria and chef, Nate were incredible. The voyage exceeded all of our expectations. Shawn chose beautiful bays and coves to moor in with a good mix of serenity and activity. We had a nice mix of water sports such as SUPs, kayaks and snorkeling along with exploring local beaches and watering holes. We enjoyed cocktail hour with awesome beverages and sunsets. We chose half of our dinners on board, and the others at great beach restaurants. The accommodations on board were fabulous. Each berth has its own bathroom and the common areas are very comfortable. Truly was a trip of a lifetime, and I wanted to stay forever. In fact, I inquired if they needed a doctor on board. A lovely respite from a hectic job and cold Minnesota winters. I would enthusiastically recommend August Maverick to anyone wanting a Virgin Island sailing experience. I have traveled extensively, and this trip is tops in my book."

Shawn, Victoria and Nate, Thank you for making this an exceptional experience for Mike and I. This trip has helped bring us back to our center. Nate: Can’t tell you enough how excellent we believe your cooking skills are. I preferred your food to the dinners on shore. I’m sure Mike would agree. Thank you for all your effort. Victoria: you are an outstandingly wonderful host. You move so quietly about taking care of all our needs. You make an excellent drink. Thanks for all the extra time with moving us about the cabins. Clean sheets, towels, and a cool and cozy room to return to at the end of the day. Thank you. You have a sweet and kind soul. Shawn: thank you most of of all. This adventure meant the world to us. All the points of interest, stops, all had a different atmosphere and feel and memory. I hope this venturing means as much to all who have the opportunity in the future.

August Maverick is a beautiful vessel — classic design, tastefully updated and lovingly maintained — very well suited to larger groups regardless of weather. The lower salon and berths were spacious and comfortable, but the pilot house is exceptional. Bright and airy, it had enough room to shelter us from the occasional rain, and opened up easily to the aft deck when the sun was shining. It was our favorite space to hang out.
Shawn and the entire crew were outstanding hosts. They were competent, attentive and accommodating, as you would expect from a professional charter company. But what really made our trip so enjoyable was that the crew was also relaxed and fun. And patient — Captain Shawn was willing to share his local knowledge, love of sailing and pride in the August Maverick to answer our endless “newbie” questions.
We had a great trip and would recommend the August Maverick to anyone.
