Our second outing on Jabberwocky was the highlight of this year's trip to Antigua. Last year we loved the afternoon 'sunset' sail ( a surprise invite from lovely new-made friends). This year we met with those friends again and took the day sail which was spectacular. The ocean is the ocean (well, to be PC, the Atlantic) and we had exhilarating winds to sail and calm waters to snorkel. The difference is the gorgeous Jabberwocky and her amazing crew! I am not a natural sailor by any stretch, but Nick and Kaye exude a quiet professionalism that made me feel safe and gave me confidence.

Their local knowledge and humorous stories are a joy. Everyone (weather permitting) can try their hand at steering and Nick is firm but encouraging. Kaye works miracles below deck and the lunch and sunset champagne and canapes are scrumptious! We will be back next year!

Hired "Jabberwocky" for my husbands 50th birthday. Had a fab day chilling out with Nick and Kay who I am have to say are the purfect hosts. The trip is worth every penny very personalised and you are not squashed like "sardines in a can" like on some of the other yacht charters with the bigger companies.
The lunch was delicious personally cooked by Kay on board, the wine, champers and rum puch flowed freely and my husband even got a birthday cake !!
Thank You Nick and Kay for making this a very special day with extra special memories.

We enjoyed our second day out on Jabberwocky, some 11 months after our first. We had a great sail down to Carlisle Bay. It was so peaceful, and we saw numerous turtles coming up above the surface for air. Before lunch I had a long swim in the warm clear water, with views of Montserrat in the distance. My husband saw numerous brightly coloured fish while snorkelling. We enjoyed a delicious lunch under the sun awning before a further swim and sail back. Nick and Kaye are great hosts; friendly, relaxed and professional. We thoroughly recommend the trip, and for the future will choose the day sail rather than the sunset extension to the trip.

All four of us had a fabulous day on the Jabberwocky and will definitely be going again when we return to Antigua at the end of the year. We enjoyed sailing, sunbathing, snorkelling, swimming , excellent food and plenty of cold drinks. Everything was supplied so you really only need to turn up with swim wear, towels and suntan lotion!
We were on the boat for sunset - the drinks and canapés were fantastic - and we even saw the 'green flash' when the sun disappeared below the horizon.
A truly memorable day.

We get fabulous sunsets here in Antigua, but you were very lucky as not everyone gets to see 'the green flash' .
Look forward to seeing you later on in the year for hopefully another green flash moment !!

We decieded to charter a sailboat and could not have been more happy with our selection of Jabberwocky. The four of us had a wonderful day on the water, got to learn a bit about sailing, man the wheel for a while, and enjoy a beautiful day on the water. An excellent meal, some snorkelling and some good conversation made it a wonderful choice.

Cheers,
