New Years 2019/2020
Dear Ben & Michelle,
Where do we begin...can we just start his amazing trip on Excess with the two of you all over again? Starting 2020 with you made for the best New Years day ever. Beyond! In every way. Dolphins (4) leaving our way to paradise to way too many passion fruit orchids...but who is counting? Scuba diving with sharks, over indulging in Michelle's amazing meals and the best hospitality with you two. You saved us on a daily basis with the perfect remedies to insure our trip was beyond our highest expectations. We loved every minute and hate to leave. Ben as captain, was the best we have ever had on a cat in the BVI. (This was our third time...so we know a stand-out!) Thank you for every minute. We can't wait until next time! You 2 have huge hearts and made Excess feel like home. Thank you

Ben & Michelle,
"Thank you" hardly seems sufficient, but I suppose it is a good start. This trip started as just a big dream that I wasn't sure we'd be able to pull people together for. The fact that my friends and family indulged me for my bucket list 40th birthday celebration is not something I take for granted.
Everything about this trip was amazing. I truly do not think it could have been any better. The boat itself is obviously beyond beautiful...but to be honest it's the two of you that make Excess so special.
We will never forget the kindness and personal care you showed each one of us. You two were made for this and we not only hope to do it again some day, but to do it again with you both.
Thank you for your hard work, your special hearths, your amazing talents...and the best trip we could've ever asked for!

Love your biggest fans & friends for life,
Lauri & Chad

Ben & Michelle-

Words can't even begin to describe our experience on Excess. The boat is absolutely gorgeous! From the moment we boarded we were welcomed warmly, and it continued throughout the entire trip. Your hospitality was beyond amazing, Michelle - the food was seriously delicious, and you were wonderful dealing with a variety of tastes! As Sarah said "the best cheesecake in the world!' Thank you both for being warm, kind & patient. You are truly amazing at what you do and we honestly could not have asked for two better people to make our vacation beyond memorable. We can't wait to come back!!

Ben & Michelle-

Where to begin... the week has been so very special and fun for our family!! Your hospitality and kindness from day one helped our family settle in and relax immediately! This has been the most relaxing and peaceful vacation ever just watching all the sunsets and cruising along from island to [email protected] The snorkeling spots were amazing with the most beautiful and colorful fish and sea turtles. Thank your for creating such an incredible diving experience and the really cool lobster eating!

The week of allowing bananas on the boat will never be forgotten by us or you I'm sure!!

Thank you for the many firsts and great memories that surely our family will remember for a lifetime.

Please get in touch if you are ever this way. We would love to treat you both to some mid-west hospitality!

Hopefully we will meet again, but until then...safe travels!

All the best,
Tom, Toni, Tyler, Taylor, Trevor & Tanner.

Ben & Michelle,
What a week! Thank you for being so incredibly hospitable and helping to make this a trip of a lifetime. We will never forget the experiences we shared with you and the memories created on AND off Excess. There were a lot of firsts! Ben, thanks for going night diving for Meg's cellphone, and for teaching us all how to scuba dive! Can't believe we saw a frog fish, or that you and Tyler saw that octopus! We were beyond impressed with Michelle's cooking, it was absoutly delicious! We snorkeled through caves, swam off cliffs, saw extraordinary sunsets, and we will never forget any of it. You both have not only been amazing hosts and guides, but you have also become friends and we look forward to staying in touch. We will miss you!
Love,
Katie, Tyler, Meg, Ricki + John

5 stars!
We chartered Excess for a week. All seven of us agreed it was the best vacation that we have had. Our group was adventurous and the crew on Excess showed us things that we would not have normally seen. We snorkeled a 150 year old ship wreck, jumped off rocks, hiked on the islands and much more. We hit 11 islands in the week and never felt rushed. The food and drinks were outstanding as well. I am typically a picky eater but all of the meals prepared were amazing. Anything we needed Ben and Michelle were there before asking. I highly recommend chartering with this crew!
Grateful and Appreciative
Our weeklong cruise to celebrate Amy's 60th birthday came with many unexpected gifts: family, camaraderie coral reefs with exotic fish, sting rays, sea turtles and dolphins, hiking and snorkeling to curious ruins, excursions to local-establishments and a variety of water activities to happily keep us in the Caribbean for hours.
But it is your hospitality, your exceptional meals, your attentiveness, you companionability and your willingness to indulge us in all of our requests that made this trip memorable for a lifetime. We are grateful and appreciative.
Until we meet again, travel well our friends of the sea!

Our Time on Excess Was Truly Special
Our time on excess was truly special. You both took such good care of our family and for that we thank you very much. The meals were delicious! The tours of the BVI's spectacular!....each bay became our new favorite. Ben having you in the water snorkeling with us made it all the more fun - thank you for sharing your BVI world with us.

You Two Were Certainly The Highlight!
We have traveled the world and discovered our favorite place - under the sea! thank you for taking us to special reefs and sharing your knowledge of fish and flora. Ben, we loved watching you free dive and point to the unusual. We appreciate your patience, especially when rescuing Owen off the coral reef. Michelle, we loved your warm welcome and excellent meals. Your wonderful food was the start and end to each special day. When we look back on this trip, you two are certainly the highlight!

Thank you!
Thank you for hosting us in your lovely home and showing us around the neighborhood. Your gracious hospitality made me feel comfortable and welcome. I don't think I could have asked for anything more during this trip, except for maybe a whale sighting! May all your seas be calm and your journeys safe.

Singularly Wonderful!
We had the most amazing time on Excess! Ben & Michelle made it a singularly wonderful experience! The open sea and wonderful coves made it an extraordinary journey. Ben led us on some wonderful snorkeling excursions, including the most amazing dive off of St. James island. We saw loggerhead turtles, sting rays, triggerfish, cow fish and a black tip reef shark.

Michelles meals were so enjoyable. She killed it with the chicken curry, tuna poke bowl and soba noodles.

My family and I are so thankful for the generous hospitality and graciousness!

The fun never stopped
From the moment our trip began on Excess we have laughed, smiled, screamed (in a good way) and enjoyed every moment of our week. We all have collective favorite memories as well as individual moments and experiences that will stay with us for many years to come. Ben and Michelle are excellent hosts and awesome people! Their friendship will remain long after the delicious food, stories and spectacular views begin to fade.
