“Just do THIS instead of That”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

On April 25th, my wife, 16 year old daughter and her friend and myself chartered a monohull from Bateau Mygo in St. Lucia and had a wonderful experience. Over the years we have done all of the day excursions at least once and we really wanted something different. For just a little more money we were able to have our own boat with an exceptional two man crew. Frank was very responsive via e-mail and made the whole process simple. What a concept?!

Londie and Nikson crewed and were extremely accommodating in addition to being able sailors. We were able to create our own itinerary for the day and they did the rest. Our sail took us from the Windjammer Landing Resort dock to Jalousie Beach where we had a good hot meal aboard. My wife and I explored Jalousie Plantation after being tendered to the dock by Nikson, while the teenage girls snorkled. After oooing and ahhing at Jalousie Plantation, my wife and I snorkled back to the boat.

After our time at the foot of the Pitons we sailed back to the Windjammer. Unlike many other day trips, we actually sailed most of the way with the motor off. Rum punch tastes so much better without the annoying motor.

I would strongly recommend this outfit for those who are looking for something a bit more that the usual excursion. Class act!

“One of the best days ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

My husband and I recently did the half-day sunset sail charter. From the beginning, I was impressed. Frank (the owner) was very prompt in responding to email and I was so excited to do the cruise. He showed up to pick us up from our resort right on time and was very friendly in sharing info about the Island. The sail was beyond amazing. We cruised down around the Pitons and stopped to snorkle. We enjoyed rum punch, piton beer, water, and even a snack. Our captain and first mate were wonderful and we really felt spoiled. The sunset is one we will never forget! We were so thankful not to be crammed into some overcrowded tour run by our hotel. It was truly worth every penny that we spent. ( And the prices were very reasonable!) I would highly recommend Bateau Mygo as the way to really experience St. Lucia by boat. We can't wait to return to St. Lucia and use them again!

“Best Day Sail ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

WIth two couples we wanted to spend a relaxing but fun day on a sail boat during our stay in St Lucia and our crew was perfect for that. Captain and steward were extremely friendly, fun and helpful, showed us to a beautiful secluded beach, dropped us at interesting snorkel spots and organised delicious lunch.
We enjoyed every minute and didn't want the day to end! The upgrade to their flagship catamaran helped for sure - so much space!!! :)

“Great Way to End our Visit to St. Lucia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

Our Norwegian Captain and St. Lucian Stewardess welcomed us at the dock at 10AM with reserved (the Captain) and cheerful (Stewardess) greetings. Things were nicely organized, and we sailed south from Marigot Bay towards the Pitons on a light wind. Being on the water after being land bound on the mountainous roads all week was a relief.

We snorkeled at Jalousie Beach, after being ferried ashore on the ship's rubber boat tender. Lunch afterwards was excellent; fish for me, chicken for my wife, and pasta for my daughter. Rice and vegetables accompanied the main course, and warm food after our snorkel felt great.

We proceeded up the coast, stopping for a second snorkel at Anse Cochon. We were helped onto our mooring by the entrepreneurial (and slightly rapacious) local boatmen who tie you up for $5 ECD and a beer or two.

The trip was a bit pricy ($600USD minus a 15% discount plus a $60 tip) but was the perfect last day of vacation treat. Relaxing, cheery, self-indulgent, and tailored to our desires.

This was not, however, a guided tour of the coast; our captain was not very knowledgable about the island. We did learn a bit about his early business ventures, and what its like to cross the Atlantic in a 42 foot sailing vessel.

“Absolutely amazing day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

We booked up with Bateau Mygo to take 15 of us after our wedding to dinner at the House of Seafood in Marigot Bay, followed by a few hours sailing on a catamaran.

They picked us up promptly from our hotel and took us by private hire to the restaurant in Marigot Bay. Our food was served very quickly as they were expecting us, and the service was fantastic.

We then boarded their flagship vessel "Dream Chaser" and, well all I can say is that we were treated like royalty for the next few hours, drinks constantly being topped up, together with nibbles, and just laying on the boat enjoying the sunshine until sunset, at which time we had a glass of bubbly each whilst we watched the sun go down. It was the most amazing romantic time of my holidayand what a way to spend your wedding day. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff on board.

We can thoroughly recommend this to anyone looking to do something a bit different - if there hadn't been so many of us dinner would have been served on board, but I am certainly not complaining as the view from our table in the restaurant was breathtaking.

A special thanks to Frank for sorting all arrangements with me, I am sure every time he saw my name pop up on his email he dreaded it!

Fantastic fantastic fantastic !!!!
