private boat/captain;also food

Who can offer advice about the best outfit to rent a large speedboat and private captain from? My family of four would like to have some fun on the water with some water toys and an experienced driver. Also, how's the food and atmosphere at Havana Blue? I've booked Christmas dinner there and am hoping it's great. Thanks for the advice.

Hi dana, I haven't experienced the private speedboat and captain. Although we spend 11 days in STT yearly, we always run out of time before we do this. ONE year we took a sail on the Alexander Hamilton (now gone; I sure haven't seen her). This was a sail, though, not a power boat. We stopped in a couple of spots to snorkel and had a really nice lunch on board. I don't know of a service that combines private powerboat and scuba. In that case you'll likely need to hire a captain and a dive master. Certainly not unimaginable. Other posters have listed the names of boat hire companies in this forum. Google them for their phone numbers and ask.

Regarding Havana Blue, we just ate there. It was all right. But I thought it was expensive and pretentious. The fact that you can't request a substitution in your dish, where any other restaurant on the island is certainly willing to do this, I thought was a needless drag on the experience. Maybe they'll loosen up by Christmas :-)

Have fun!
