We had the cat for 9 of us for a private charter and had a great time. The crew, Andy and Karim, looked after us well and took us our for a great sail, visit to snorkel a reef, and some time on a beach only accessible by sea. Throw in some music of our choir and run punch and a good time was had by all. Would definitely do again we had a great time.

In Antigua on vacation with friends & chartered a half day cruise with Jolly Cat. Can't say enough about the entire experience!! Andy & Kareem were knowledgeable & answered every question as if it was the first time they'd heard it!! Snorkeling at the reef was fantastic. Plenty of time just to hang out as well!
Reasonably priced & worth every penny to have the whole cat to yourselves!!
Can't wait for next year😆

Having researched a number of private boat charters, we decided to book Jolly Cat for a party of 12 whilst on an incentive trip to Antigua. Catherine was very friendly and efficient when making the booking direct and the price quoted was very competitive based on a number of comparative quotes. The party said the boat was awesome, food delicious, crew knowledgeable, friendly and fun, and the rum free flowing. What more could you ask for! An amazing day was had by all and as such we would highly recommend Jolly Cat Charters.

We approached our Concierge at the hotel looking for a luxury Day charter either by ourselves or by joining a small group.

We were advised that we could only charter privately they did not offer additions to a group.

We were concerned 2 people on such a large vessel would be overwhelming but were assured this is commonplace.

We were quoted $1250 US and proceeded to agree in principal based upon our concierge recommendation for a day experience.

However when we looked up their website we saw the pricing for 2 people 8 hours was US $860, having lost confidence we decided to book elsewhere.

The feedback received was 'sorry we thought you were 4 people..'

Firstly we heard our Concierge repeatedly state 2 people, secondly 4 people was still advertised at $940.

Proceed with caution regarding their inconsistent pricing via telephone ... do your research..look up their website.

Sadly we can't comment on the experience itself...

He chose Jolly cat because of their competitive price. We had a fun day around the island although it was quite wavy and i got a massive headache (I'm not getting easily sick on sea, but it was quite a windy day).
The snorkelling part was shorter than I hoped for. The equipment they gave us was not great and when i complained that my mask was not good enough they just scold me that i don't know how to use it (there was no point in telling them that i was snorkelling for years).
The lunch was good and sufficient and the team quite friendly.
Overall it was a good experience.

My husband and I along with our three daughters, ages 28, 21 and 11 enjoyed a day of sailing and snorkeling on the Jolly Cat. We booked through our resort, Blue Waters. We wanted a boat that had covering so that if we wanted we could be out of the sun. The Jolly Cat was perfect! There was plenty of room for everyone and our girls enjoyed laying out on the netting in the front of the catamaran. Andy and David were a terrific crew! They took good care of us. The sailing was amazing and David led us through the reef for a great time snorkeling. We were served a delicious hot lunch of chicken, vegetables, rice & beans, salad and fresh fruit. I highly recommend Andy and David and the Jolly Cat catamaran!

Captain Anderson and First Lueutenant David made this a great 4 hour cruise for my wife and I. It was a great experience and one we intend to repeat for a 6 hour cruise when we return with our family. You will undoubtably have fun but will also be in very safe hands and apart from a superb crew it is a fab boat and well maintained.
