We thoroughly enjoyed our day with the crew of Mainstay. The catamaran was spacious, well maintained, and Jon and Oscar went above and beyond to ensure that our family of 13 was comfortable and enjoyed the day. We went out to Stingray City (it was AMAZING) and Starfish Pointe. We stopped several times in between the main stops and went... More

Our family of 14 from Texas spent the day with Jon & Oscar on the Enchantress in July while in Cayman for the day during a cruise. The catamaran was modern, well kept and very spacious. There were 7 kids in our party ranging in age from 2-17 and each of them thoroughly enjoyed the day on the water. Jon... More

Loved Mainstay Sailing! Will defiantly sail with them again. Jon, Wesley & Oscar are first class professionals with great sense of humors. They made the day for 23 of us on our half day sail. Stingray City, snorkeling and stopped off at Kaibo Beach. A couple of the guys even fished a little! There was enough room for all of... More

We had so much fun on the Enchantress, we did it two days in a row!! We had 6 people with two teenagers that had so much fun with John and Oscar. This excursion really made our trip!! Thanks Captain John for two wonderful days aboard your boat.

This boat ride could have been a reason alone to come visit the Cayman Island. Even though it was our second year in a row to visit the wonderful island, this crew put a week of excitement in just 4 hours. We snorkel in 2 different places, went to stingray city and hit other locations. What a wonderful crew. Jon... More

There were 22 of us that spent a half day with Jon and Oscar. We could tell it was a first class deal from the beginning. The boat was clean, beautiful, comfortable, spacious and well appointed. From the moment we left the harbor, Jon made sure the day was catered to our desires. We did it all and it was... More

Snorkeling, fishing, swimming and just enjoying the amazing experience. Captain John runs a great trip. From snorkeling the reef to swimming... More

I highly recommend Jon, his crew and his boat. My family, 6 adults and 6 kids had an amazing half day visiting Stingray City, Starfish Point, a reef for snorkeling and even got to knee board in the crystal clear water surrounding Grand Cayman. The boat was fantastic, plenty of room and very well appointed. I'll definitely charter again with... More
