One of the highlights of our trip. Tobago Cays is my idea of a proper Caribbean beach and we had a great time there. Its an all day trip starting about 7.00 a.m and about 3 hours each way. However wonderful sailing and the most helpful crew. Very safe.

We have sailed on The Friendship Rose several times with young and now teenage boys. As always this occasion was a fabulous day spent sailing to Tobago Cays. The crew were attentive and professional, the food was excellent and there was plenty of opportunity to swim, snorkel and explore the Cays.

The Friendship Rose is a beautiful almost 50 year old schooner which said out of Port Elizabeth in Bequia. Two trips are offered - one to Mystique and one to Tobago Cays. I took the Tobago Cays one which involves 6 hours of sailing. The sea is a little rough and some people were unwell so seasickness tablets are recommended.... More

Essentially this is a day at sea in a wonderful old schooner with very attentitve hosts. Probably an hour in total was spent at Tobago Cays. I chose not to snorkel but instead had a short stroll in the vicinity and enjoyed time relaxing on the beach watching the comings and goings. My husband did snorkel but it was very... More

We sailed from Bequia to Tobago Cay on the magnificent Friendship Rose. Toby, Andrew and the crew were great and looked after us really well, serving a delicious breakfast as we left Admiralty Bay. We travelled under sail, with a little motor assist , to Tobago Cays, which was amazing. We had lots of time on a beach of soft... More

I sailed on the Friendship Rose from Bequia to Tobago Cays. This is a full day of sailing - 3 hours sailing to the Cays and three hours to return to Bequia. We were able to snorkel for about 30 minutes once we arrived, and spent about 30 minutes on a small island. This is not the trip for you... More

We spent the most perfect day on the beautiful hand built, wooden schooner sailing over to Mustique from Bequia. From the moment we stepped aboard the friendly and competent crew, skippered by Toby were amazing. There were about twenty guests to seven crew. The trip started at 8am and we sailed back into Bequia harbour at about 5 pm. The... More

This offered an excellent day out with good value for money. The lunch was excellent. However a four hour sail there and back is quite demanding and we did experience some turbulence. You need your sea legs. Crew were very helpful
