Rent a cabin with your own private bathroom, just as you can on a cruise ship. Instead of a thousand new acquaintances, you’ll just have a few new friends. Our professional crew manages the sailing, and a gourmet chef prepares your meals from fresh local products. On occasion, our crews even catch fresh Tuna or Mahi-Mahi right from the catamaran!
You’ll leave all the frustrating aspects of life behind and adopt a more laid-back pace: one that allows you to you follow the rhythms of the sea and tropical trade winds. The catamaran’s shallow draft allows for entrance to private anchorages and special snorkeling spots that large cruise ships can only dream of sharing with their passengers.
