Four of us enjoyed the Sunset Dinner Cruise on Passaat, a beautiful gaff-rigged sailing schooner built in 1911 in Holland. Captain Pieter and First Mate Mirian were wonderful hosts and provided an unforgettable experience. We sailed at 5:30pm -- first being picked up at 5:15pm from the St Maarten Yacht Club in Simpson Bay. A gorgeous sail along the coast, past Maho Bay, Mullet Bay, and continuing to Cupecoy Beach to watch a spectacular sunset with a chance to see the "green flash." Mirian was a gracious host, offering refreshing rum punch and tasty appetizers. Just the sounds of the sails, the sea and good company. We returned back to Simpson Bay to anchor and enjoy a great three course meal prepared by Mirian in the galley and served on deck - fresh salad, mahi mahi with mango chutney, and delicious coconut cream pie. A quick jaunt on the tender back to the Yacht Club at 9:30pm. Be sure to bring your camera for great photo opportunities and dress appropriately for the the current weather conditions.

We went on the Passat Sunset Dinner Cruise. It was lovely. Peter and Miriam were very friendly and welcoming. The dinner was great! They were very accomadating because I don't eat fish and Miriam made chicken for me. She also made awesome homemade Coconut Cream Pie. We had a great time!!

We took the Lazy Sunday Every Day cruise and had a wonderful time. Peter and Miriam were great hosts providing us with a relaxing day and lots of informative information on the areas we were passing by. When we got back on the boat from snorkling we found a table set with wine, water and a home cooked meal that was delicious!!! It was a great way to spend a day sailing along the St. Maartin coast.
