“Caribbean crews”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

We had a magical sunset cruise on the catamaran "Cat Tales". Our host and hostess, captain Jim and wife Sherrill took us out for several hours on the azure ocean off the Western Antiguan Coast. We sailed to a secluded beach where we swam off the boat. Sherrill served their own rum punch and canapés. Later Jim let us take the helm and gave us the benefit of his extensive knowledge of sailing and the surrounding area.
The craft is totally safe, luxurious and well-appointed. The welcome is unrivalled and the experience was unforgettable.

“Marvelous experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

We spent a day sailing with James&Sherrill on their Catamaran, and had the best day ever. They are very skilful sailors and their boat is very well maintained. The reception on board was great and hearty. As an ex - sailor I good handle the Cat Tales Ii alone and could help out with the sails. Manoeuvring between reefs was sailing at its best. Great snorkling
and a fabulous lunch afterwards with plenty of wine, their rum punch tastes like nectar. We had beautiful weather and spent the afternoon by simply sailing and enjoying the ride and each other company.
The trip back to Jolly Harbour during sunset brought beautiful sceneries, while enjoying some excellent canapés and more whine.
And the end of the day, it felt that we had a day out at sea with some good friends who know each other for years. We loved it so much we booked again before leaving Antigua on the 31st of January.
Cat Tales Ii and James&Sherrill give undoubtly the best sailing tour you can have while being here.

Ronald & Simone..........This is the best review Tropical Catamaran sailing can ever wish to receive ! ......

Our guests booked a 8 hour all day tour with a Caribbean sunset.........and what a PERFECT day it was !......As you say friend ship seemed to be in place from the start !....first class sailing & weather to suit

Guests who book a second cruise before they have even got off our boat are in our minds displaying all the effort and commitment that Sherrill & myself put into our charters in paying off...........just truly great.

See you next week for your second sailing cruise on Cat Tales II here in Antigua.......

“Two Thumbs Up!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

We had numerous excursions on our two week cruise with Silverseas Cruise Line but the day spent with James & Sherrill was absolutely the BEST excursion that we took and is the one that will be most remembered. James & Sherrill are a wonderful, genuinely nice couple who love what they do......and it shows. Our day on Cat Tales II gets two thumbs up and would recommend this trip highly for anyone going to Antigua. We will surely sail with them again the next time we are in that area.

All the Best!

“Best of our honeymoon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Thank you so much Jim & Sherrill! We had the best time on our private sunset cruise during our honeymoon in November 2013. My husband and I spent 2 weeks in the Caribbean for our honeymoon, a week in Antigua and a week long cruise out of Puerto Rico and we still insist that the four hour sunset sail was the highlight of our trip. Jim & Sherrill provide a first class experience and we are so happy our resort recommended their company! We highly recommend Tropical Catamaran Sailing Day Tours and cannot wait to visit again!
