This trip includes a premium open bar (alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages), Continental breakfast, two excellent snorkel and swim stops, a hot Italian gourmet lunch, and snorkel equipment & instructions (for the first-timer). Departure is from the Sapphire Marina at 10:00am and return via a very relaxing sail into the marina at 4:00pm.

“Great experience; well worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2010

Crew of three took 37 of us out for the day. Friendly, knowledgeable crew; great lunch and plenty of it; they served drinks throughout, and had a cooler of beer and soda if you couldn't wait till they fixed you one. Stopped twice for an hour+ for snorkeling--plenty of colorful fish, a stingray, and beautiful water. I was a first-time snorkeler, and rented a prescription mask from Red Hook Dive Shop nearby ($15 for a day), which really made the trip for me; I have lousy vision and had never been able to see underwater before. They said there would be plenty of room with only 37 clients on board, but I don't think it would have been as much fun if there were many more -- not many more places to sit comfortably or get out of the sun if you wanted. Highly recommend the trip.

“If you love a big crowd this is a charter for you!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2010

One of my disappointments was that the snorkeling was not guided. I know how to snorkel but it is always better when someone who knows the locale shows it to you instead of you circling around trying to find a good spot. Also some of the instructions could have been a bit more detailed and reef friendly I guess, because there were few novices who ended up damaging reefs :-( Other then that the crew was very friendly and attentive, the lunch was delicious. So if you are looking not for much snorkeling but for a huge crowd of strangers to meet and mingle while sailing it is the charter for you!

“What a nice way to spend the day...can't wait to go again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2010

We loved the sail boat...I usually don't like sail boats, but this boat is so large that you don't have to worry about falling off. The crew was excellent, always there when you needed anything. The lunch...well the food is one of the best we have had on a ship. After lunch... the special lunch drink is just wonderful. Great way to spend the day...we will be booking next year.
