This offered an excellent day out with good value for money. The lunch was excellent. However a four hour sail there and back is quite demanding and we did experience some turbulence. You need your sea legs. Crew were very helpful

Visited Bequia in 2014 and went on the Friendship Rose twice. Had a great time! Both Mustique and Tobago Cays we're nice trips with a longer sail to the Cays. The staff was very friendly and the banana bread served on board is worth a trip on its own!

The Bequia to Tobago Cays trip is a fabulous day on the water. The crew were professional, organized and very gracious hosts. I would highly recommend this tour even from St. Vincent. They organized a speed boat transfer for us from Kingstown St Vincent to Bequia early in the morning to join them for the day and returned us safely... More

Has just come back from a day at sea on the friendship Rose. We sailed to mystique for the day. The staff on the Friendship Rose is fantastic and they gave us the best day, with nice food, drinks and a nice journey to the little island mystique. This is a highly recommended activity when your in Bequia.

For many in our party of seven, this was our first sailing trip, a birthday present for my father-in-law, and our maiden voyage was on The Friendship Rose, Bequia's flower. It was three excursions for the price of one: Moonhole; the surreal Tobago Cays; and the exhilarating ride to and fro. The crew were magnificent , taking great care to... More

A real treat - we had a swim and sail around St Vincent - fabulous views of the island, proper sailing and a great crew. Lots of local nibbles, rum punch (post swimming only) and it was a great start to our hols. Have been before and would go again.

We had a fabulous day on the Friendship Rose. We chose to take the trip to Tobago Cays. The day started out with a light breakfast as we left the harbour, enjoyed a great view of Moonhole, after which we were treated to the crew raising the sails for an enjoyable sail to the Cays. We found the crew well... More

We decided to book a trip to the Tobago Cays several months ago, and since had read many reviews here about the many pros and cons of the trip. Here are some IMHO: Pros: 1. We had a perfect day for the sail. I had prayed earnestly for a sunny day without rain or huge sea swells, as this particular... More
