booked for 6 (3 couples) and had the pleasure of having both Capt Tim and Capt Nick on board with us. Meeting place was easy to find. Both Captains are amicably and easy to be around. There is no set itinerary for the boat trip so passengers can decide what they would like to do or where to go. It was a bit choppy so we opted out of the snorkeling since we had already done that on our trip. The boat itself has a bunch of seating areas with some with covering for shade as well as a net in the bow of the catamaran where people can sit. The dual hulls make for smooth easy sailing. We had great rum punches/beers/water as well as cheese/bread/hummus/meats. It was wonderful and the conversation with the captains was entertaining and interesting. I would highly recommend booking early since they only go out twice a day. Not many sail boats can sail these shallow waters so take advantage of this boat! Well worth it. Enjoy

Captain Nik and the crew were great! The Beluga was an awesome boat to experience and the water/sunset were stunning.

Cost is on par with other similar experiences in TCI but nothing beats an easy/quiet sail while watching the sunset.

Highly recommend for those seeking a private, individualized unforgettable experience in TCI!

We had an amazing time on Sail Beluga with Captain Nick and Adam. Our group of four adults and five children were welcomed aboard with fun and enthusiasm. Captain Nick asked us about where we wanted to go and we were off! We loved snorkeling by the reef then we headed off to a private beach for some shell and sand dollar hunting. Sailing back with the sunset was breathtaking. Adam and Captain Nick made the whole experience fabulous from start to end. We HIGHLY recommend the sunset sail with Sail Beluga, it’s a gem.

On February 11th my wife and I along with my two married friends took an afternoon/sunset excursion with Captain Nik on Sail Beluga. We All had a wonderful afternoon snorkling at the reef located off of Grace Bay. We also sailed the ocean looking for whales and visited a deserted beach and found some nice shells and a few silver dollars. The snacks and plentiful drinks were very tasty and we had a wonderful afternoon talking to Captain Nik and his first mate Adam. We also had the pleasure of having the company of “Nuna” a fifteen year old Jack Russell terrier who sails with Captain Nik each time he goes out. She is such an adorable puppy. It was an afternoon filled with sun and water on the seas north of Grace Bay. We also experienced a wonderful sunset, the kind you see in the movies. We have been on many sailing excursions in the past, but this was one of the best. Having a great captain and mate watch over you and to sure your day is enjoyable adds up to a great and memorable sailing experience. If you find yourself in Grace Bay and are looking for a fun-filled day on the seas with a great captain and crew, then give Captain Nik and Adam and try Sail Beluga, you will not be disappointed.

We just completed a full day excursion on the Sail Beluga! There is a reason that all of the reviews are 5 stars!! Captain Nick and First Mate Michael were awesome in every aspect of the trip.

They took us to great snorkel spots, prepared a very nice French lunch, found sand bars to go shelling, made sure we had a beautiful view of the sun setting and yes, the beluga punch is very good! They even made sure we had a bottle of champagne to celebrate a graduation and our anniversary.

I would highly recommend to anyone wanting a very private and memorable day on the water!

Thank you Captain Nick and First Mate Michael for the highlight of our trip!

We sailed the Beluga with Capt. Nik and Capt. Tim. with our adult kids. Though we have sailed many catamarans throughout the world, the Beluga gives you a true sailing experience. Riding with the wind made it truly different and we all loved it. We were regaled with stories of how Christopher Columbus sailed along Pine Cay on his first voyage - just as we were there at that same moment. Capt. Nik makes an extremely mean Rum Punch that needs to be savored over and over to fully appreciate. Finally, we were able navigate over Revolutionary War period cannons off Fort George Cay and snorkel above them in six feet of water just offshore. Truly a day we as a family will always remember!

Wonderful afternoon sail. Family loved it. Captain Nik and Adam were fantastic. Well prepared, informative, relaxed. Flexible itinerary: we had fun snorkeling, cruising and then happily swimming with the dolphins that paid a surprise visit.
Would certainly do this again.

Captain Nick and Adam were wonderful hosts for a great afternoon sail on our trip to Turks. We got to see some wonderful sights while enjoying a sail, but also got some great information and conversation. The private sail route was such a better choice for us, and this one did not disappoint. A truly memorable experience that I would very much recommend (and will do again!)

We had a wonderful private morning sail with Captain Nik and Michael. They were very professional, easygoing, and great to converse with! Since most members in our group of 5 (including a 2 and 4 year old) don’t swim, we skipped snorkeling and took our time to get to a beautiful island where the kids had the best time in the sand and water. Captain Nik and Michael were also really great with my kids and found parts of the catamaran for my toddler to entertain himself with when he got fussy. My daughter had a great nap on board on the way back, and my husband also said the sail was his favorite part of the trip! Overall it was so relaxing and a perfect family trip out on the beautiful waters surrounding the island! Thanks, Captain Nik and Michael!

My family and I had a wonderful day with Captain Nik and Captain Tim on Sail Beluga. They took us to several wonderful and exciting places in Turks and Caicos. They are extremely knowledgeable and know how to show visitors some truly remarkable places that you might not ordinarily see in the Turks and Caicos Islands. We sailed on the Beluga, which Captain Tim built himself. He has been sail the waters off Turks and Caicos longer than most people have even been on the Islands. I would highly recommend booking an excursion with them while you are in the area. You can't get an experience like this with anyone else! We saw the vast coral reef and also some secluded beaches. My son and daughter got a first rate lesson on sailing and even had a chance to captain the boat, which they loved. I will definitely go back next time I am in Turks and Caicos for another sail.
