Myself and my husband booked a six hour cruise with lunch and guided snorkelling. From the first moment we stepped on board we were made to feel like specially invited guests. Not long after leaving the harbour we were reclining on the prow of the boat, prosecco in hand, spotting turtles, with incredible views of the Antiguan coastline as a backdrop. Our hosts, George, Stacey and Travis, were friendly and attentive. The food was fresh and delicious and the drinks (alcoholic and non) were plentiful. Staceys rum punch made with freshly pressed passion fruit was superb. It was my first time snorkelling and I made everyone laugh with my exclamation of wonder when I first put my face in the water. All in all a wonderful, relaxing, perfect day. Highly recommended.

SUPER fun and relaxing day, boat captains were incredibly nice and accommodating. Boat is absolutely beautiful and location is STUNNING! Highly recommend snorkling off the boat even if you’re an uneasy swimmer, first mate Travis is very reassuring, trustworthy, and knowledgeable. The entire crew is incredibly personable and will leave you feeling like you’ve made 3 new friends! Pretty much guaranteed to see some marine life although if not the views make it all worth it. Been on the island for 4 days prior and this was by far the best day we had on our trip! Highly HIGHLY recommend!!

My husband planned a sunset cruise as a surprise for our wedding anniversary. He communicated with Stacy during the booking process and told me she was super responsive to all his questions and requests.

The entire experience itself was perfect from start to finish. Travis and George accommodated us from the get go when I wanted to take a quick shower on board (we had done a morning activity with a different vendor nearby). We felt right at home and were seated on the "love seats" on the front of the boat. Travis was amazing giving us local knowledge and making sure we always had a full glass of their delicious homemade rum punch. Sitting up front and just watching the ocean and sails was so relaxing!

We anchored after about 45 minutes and were able to swim and float around on noodles and snorkel. George, the captain, was so sweet and chatted with us but also gave us some privacy when Travis brought out our tray of appetizers and OMG they were sooooo good.

Overall, it will be hard to top this anniversary surprise. It was relaxing, fun and romantic. I also love that this is a local family run business.

Thank you again Stacy, Travis and George!

George, Stacey and young Luka are warm, easy, culturally informed communicators, and they love what they do. From day one of our communication with Stacey to George coming to greet us and take us from the hotel to the boat, and Luka's smiles and helping us to settle in the boat, all was a very pleasant experience culminating in a wonderful sailing trip from Jolly Harbor to Carlisle Bay. The views are stunning, as are the swimming in transparent water, the food and drinks on the boat, the conversation and company of the hosts but with space for privacy, which also happened at lunch time. George, Stacey, and Luka are sailing masters and the sailing is very smooth and lovely. It was a well spent day. We recommend it without any reservation.

Sometimes it is best to base choice on value for money and not just cost! If you want a private, quality day on an acceptional yacht with professional captain and crew then Gadaboat ticks all the boxes!
George, Stacey and Travis make your day seem like a cruise with friends; a great lunch, snacks and an extensive range of drinks including cocktails. Quality snorkling equipment is provided and Travis is on hand to guide you in the water.
George has many years sailing experience and will gladly share many tales of the sea!

Stacey, George and Travis made us more than comfortable. After a bad Taxi drive to get there...they took matters into their own hands. The canceled our Taxi and got us another from Craig whom got us back to our resort without motion sickness or fear of killing someone.

But tips: The food is amazing, ambiance more so. Download your own playlist ahead of time so you can use your own tunes. While there is space where you can change...I suggest going ready to get in the water.

We got to experience a sailing team that ran more like a family. We found out Stacey is even Travis' sons Godmother. Seriously so sweet. George and his stories kept us entertained. 🥰

The Rum Punch is a culinary triumph. Made with freshly pressed juice and topped with top notch garnishes and a fresh grating of nutmeg. You will not want to miss this tasty drink.

Stacey, George & Travis. - Thank you for your hospitality. We will forever remember our Antigua trip and you simultaneously.

Went out with George on Gadaboat yesterday with another couple of friends and had the most fabulous time. We had the boat to ourselves - with plenty of room on deck and below and seats on the front (bow?) His wife Stacey supplied us with the most delicious food and spectacular rum punch .. the punch included fresh Passion fruit juice and freshly grated nutmeg which lifted it into a different league to anything I’ve had before … anywhere ! The salsa dip which was provided as an afternoon snack was to die for…. combined with carefully selected chips - it was an absolutely perfect snack. We thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon with George and his mate Khaari who kept us well supplied with a good selection of drinks including wine, Prosecco and of course the amazing rum punch … and fully entertained throughout. The whole vibe was totally relaxed and chilled under sail… so no engines for 95% of our trip. This will certainly be a trip we will repeat next time we are in Antigua and look forward to seeing George again.

My boyfriend and I traveled to Antigua for a relaxing getaway. Little did I know that my boyfriend, now fiancé, had planned a surprise boat proposal. He communicated with Stacey via whatsapp, and together they set up a key words on when to move to the front of the boat to the "love seats" and ask the big question. Stacey has experience with proposals, weddings, and celebrations and made the process seamless.
Stacey recommended Travis (Austin Pixel) for photos. The pictures that Travis took were phenomenal. I am elated. He told us how to pose and where to stand to reduce shadow/wind.
Stacey and her partner George are wonderful. George picked us up from the hotel and asked if we were married (even though he was in on the proposal bit). Upon arrival onto the boat, Stacey made us her famous rum punch and it was delicious. She even provided us with champagne after the proposal. They also provided us with appetizers - chicken wings/meatballs, carrot/celery with hummus, shrimp, dips. In addition, they were able to make most of the apps gluten free for my fiancé since he has celiac. They gave us adequate time alone to embrace the beautiful sea and sky all while being so warm and welcoming. Stacey, George, and Travis are very personable, and they were vital in making this making this experience unforgettable for us. Our experience could not have been any better. Thank you Gadaboat!

We had an amazing day on Gadaboat with Captain George, Stacey and Travis! It was the highlight of our trip. Weather was perfect and we sailed the whole day, visiting a wreck to snorkel and another sheltered bay for lunch and swimming. Stacey was an amazing host and the drinks kept flowing, including her delicious rum punch. I have attempted to replicate (without success) her scrumptious homemade salsa. Homemade rotis cooked by Travis’s mum were the perfect lunch. As a mum of two children aged 11 and 9 I was a little worried they might be bored - but they declared it “the best day ever”!! George is a fantastic captain who entertained us with stories all day, and Travis an excellent first mate who looked after our every need. We have booked to return to Antigua next year and I very much hope to spend another day sailing with Gadaboat!

We had an AMAZING experience on Gadaboat! Stacey and George helped make my proposal perfect in every way. I highly recommend using photographer Travis (Austin Pixels) to make the ride even more memorable. Great food, great drinks, views are unmatched, and the people are the greatest. Thank you to the Gadaboat team for everything!
