“Nate is a great Cap'n”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

What a gorgeous way to spend a day! We travelled out with Nate on the half day cruise on the Marauder. We had a wonderful time sailing out to a secluded bay for snorkeling, followed up by some delicious lunch and conversation with the other folks on our trip. I would definitely do this again and strongly recommend it.

“Perfect Day Sailing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Spent the most wonderful Christmas Eve day sailing with Cap'n Nate and Jade on the Marauder. Nate & Jade are really welcoming and extremely knowledgable, giving us a great history of the island and pointing out the various beaches as we sailed up the coast. The boat itself is very comfortable and it was very easy to relax, the Pina Colada's made to a traditional Puerto Rican recipe also helped! We anchored in the beautiful Sun Bay and whilst Cap'n Nate cooked up a delicious lunch Jade took us all on a snorkelling tour of the bay, some of the party were more experienced than others but Jade made sure we all got as much out of the snorkelling as we could. On returning to the boat lunch was served to use whilst lounging in the sun on deck. Throughout the trip we were looked after brilliantly and I loved the whole experience. I would highly recommend a trip with Marauder Sailing.

“Sailing in paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

My wife and I had an amazing time sailing with Captian Nate and Jade. They both made our trip stress free from the beginning. The sail boat is very well maintiained and has a nice canopy to hide from the sun. Not only is Nate a great captian, he is also a great chef. While Jade took us out snorkeling in Sun Bay, Nate whipped out his grill and prepared some of the best tasting grilled chicken we've had in a long time. After the great meal, we started sailing back and Nate let me play Captian for a bit while I took hold of the tiller. Although we didn't get to see any dolphins, we did come across a beautiful turtle coming up for air, as well as sting rays juming out of the water. We recommend Marauder Sailing to anyone visiting Vieques!

“True Vieques Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Just returned from my third visit to Vieques, the best Caribbean island you've never heard of. While the overall trip was marvelous, our Marauder cruise was definitely a highlight. Capt. Nate (we joked that we expected to see a grizzled old sea captain when hearing that name) and First Mate Jade were experienced sailors and hosts and did their utmost to make us feel like part of the family. The intimate grouping (only six passengers) made for great conversation and budding friendships.

After setting sail, Nate took us on a leisurely course to a secluded beach and coral reef, where we were able to spend a good amount of time snorkeling and relaxing...viewing rays, flying fish, dolphins, sea turtles and an amazing array of underwater animals and plants. We never felt rushed...in fact, the overall trip lasted considerably longer than promised. Can't wait to return to Vieques...and, when we do, will definitely plan to join Marauder again.
