Honestly we didn't do much research on this Sunset Cruise and thought it was going to be on a smaller sailboat or a catamaran. To our delight it was this larger boat that I later found out had quite the history (I finally read about it when I sent the Captain and Hostess a message on their site - http://www.sailholiday.com). We were waiting in the Yacht Club right there on Simpson Bay when Mirian approached us and seemed to know who we were??? Not quite sure how because plenty of others who were sitting in the bar didn't go on our sail. But, nonetheless she was friendly from the get-go! Peter was too throughout the trip but he stayed busier with manning the boat and sails, etc. while Mirian offered us small snacks and drink. We didn't even realize that was part of the 'package' so it was a nice surprise. A little Pinot Grigio, Presidente' beer, french baguette with boursin cheese, along with the beautiful view and we were great!
This is a good price (we paid $154 total for four of us) for 2+ hours on the boat and we were not crowded the night we were there at ALL with just 14 of us. If you go, you'll love Mirian and if you have a chance to do the dinner cruise, I'd say GIVE IT A SHOT because the two people running this excursion truly care about what their guests on board think and the kind of experience they have.
If we ever return, we plan to look at doing the all day sail (so we can FINALLY see Long & Plum Beaches) and the dinner sail as WELL as the Sunset Cruise. I read in many reviews that the food is great on the dinner cruise and that they take you to the areas that are not accessible unless you are paying over $450 a night for accommodations at the tip of the island where Plum and Long Beaches are. Would have loved to see them since in many 'lists of beaches' those two are rated as a couple of the best. All are noted on the island as 'public beaches' but this area has been built to block anyone without a pass to get through ANY of the many MANY gates. Such a shame - but Mirian told us that they take you there on the day excursion!!
