The S/V ATABEYRA is a 69', traditionally rigged trading schooner that retired from cargo service almost 20 years ago. The vessel traded for years between Hispaniola and the Turks & Caicos Islands carrying such commodities as rum , beer, produce, plants, building materials and even a few critters. The ship has been refit as a charter vessel and now stays close to home in the sheltered waters of Grace Bay and the Caicos Cays of Turks and Caicos Islands. The S/V ATABEYRA is the perfect platform for learning hands on operation of traditional sailing craft, for exploring the exquisite undersea world and many islands that surround us or just lounging on her spacious, shaded decks. No vessel in the TCI charter fleet is as large or as versatile. Sun Charters and the ATABEYRA crew offer our guests a unique opportunity to get real sailing experience aboard the last of the tropical trading schooners. Being a gaff-rigged vessel carrying two headsails, there are lots of lines to pull, many sails to tend, and the skipper will even be happy to let you take the helm. Feel the past come alive as we sail through the uninhabited chain of Caicos Cays the same way it was done hundreds of years ago. The Cays were once the lair of the infamous lady pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Reid, and the waters and surrounding islands remain basically untouched since that time. The Crew of the Good Ship Atabeyra are proud that she is overwhelmingly the boat the residents choose when recreating in the Caicos Cays.

We did the half day snorkel and loved it. We went snorkeling, drank "happy juice", hung out on the prettiest beach we'd ever seen, then sailed back to the marina. I would highly recommend and will do again next time.

Perfect day...perfect weather! Capt. Tibi and Junior made sure our snorkel, island beach jaunt, sand dollar hunt, and cruise were exceptional! The one of a kind ship, built by its owner, is clean. Junior kept the rum punch---really good stuff---flowing plentifully all day. Powdery white...More

Sorry for the late reply...we don't monitor this one on a regular basis. Atabeyra has plenty of flotation for snorkelers. Check out the photos posted with reviews on this site. Cheers.
