Annette and Captain Francois
This was our second trip aboard Bonaparte. While we did not think we could top our first trip, our second trip was even better. We traveled with our two boys (11 and 13), my wife, and her parents. It is safe to say that our time aboard is one of the top highlights of our year. The yacht, the accommodations, and countless water activities are fantastic. Your itinerary is filled with endless possibilities. You can choose your environment - anything from a remote anchorage to a bustling waterfront. The food is absolutely splendid with a different theme at each meal. Annette is not only a gracious host but a highly skilled chef. She will amaze you with her variety and made-from-scratch meals. Captain Francois is highly skilled in, not only operating the vessel, but in keeping everyone as busy as they would like and can find an activity that suits everyone. You can do anything from riding Sea Doos to spear fishing to lounging in the sun on the front deck. The Captain is extremely knowledge of the Bahamas and will take you to places that are explored by only a lucky few. What really makes this trip is the crew. Captain Francois and Annette are so personable and fun and they make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. You will be sad to leave Bonaparte. If you are looking for a wonderful experience aboard a classic yacht, this is for you.
The Bonaparte is classic and beautiful, well maintained, has every amenity you would need/want and is perfectly suited to families (there were 5 of us - 2 adults, 3 boys ages 11, 12, 13, the ship sleeps 6 guests). The master bedroom suite is spacious and all 3 bedrooms have plenty of storage space (drawers, closets), lots of natural light and air conditioning. The fore deck is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sun, the salon is comfortable and the aft deck is conducive to relaxing, dining, games and enjoying the beautiful views.
V The crew of the Bonaparte is outstanding! Captain Francois Gagnon, his wife Annette and Christine are professional, knowledgable and ensured that we were pampered the entire week. They catered to our every need from activities to dining. They became fond friends by the end of our trip.
Annette is an incredible chef and although our menu was pre-planned, she inquired daily about special likes and favorites foods; as a result she made profiteroles, creme brûlée, homemade chocolate cake as an example, all were delicious. Her food presentation is professional, quality always fresh and every meal was delicious!
Captain Francois is very familiar with the Exumas and took us on many outings so that we could explore and enjoy each Cay to its fullest. He offered many on board activities for the boys as well (jet skis, kayak, snorkeling, SUP, etc) Christine is professional, courteous and a pleasure!
Again, I highly recommend the Bonaparte and her crew; we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and had a marvelous, relaxing week!
It was one of the best days of our vacations, me and my boyfriend been there to celebrate my birthday!!! EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT , the crew is really helpful, nice, with the best actitud and service. The food that they made was really delicious they made me a birthday cake and decorated the boat with ballons! We went to an amazing beach and we do paddle board, and jetsky, we have a really good time.
The Bonaparte boat is perfect classic, elegant and in excelent conditions!!! Is the best boat you can choose.
We are SO THANKFUL with capitan Francois, Annet his wife that cooks delicious and all the crew for make my birthday so special and happy!!!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!!!
This was the best day of our vacation! We have two small kids(5&8) and they entitled the experience "The Best Day Ever"!! We also brought my mother who is 66 and she thought it was the "Best Day Ever" as well. The service and yacht was top notch! We were treated like family by the entire crew! From the first minute to the last, it was a wonderful, fun, educational, relaxing experience! We were greeted by a dolphin alongside the yacht on our way to a private island. Upon the arrival we had food and refreshments and many water sports as well as beach full of activities to choose from. The girls kayaked as well as jet skied. Captain took the girls on a "treasure hunt" so the adults could relax! The food was amazing and prepared by the MRs! What a feast!! Ashton was such a doll as well. He was a pleasure to hang out with and was a love to the kids :) Another perk is that we have a ton of pictures that captured the entire day taken by the crew!! It was truly an experience of a lifetime and we will be doing it again on our next trip to the Bahamas.
