“Fun Day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Our group of six spent a very enjoyable day with Pat and Alice on their sailboat. The wind was very strong and from a different direction than normal, so they had to make an adjustment to the usual trip they take. Our first stop was to Sting Ray City and it was quite amazing. Although a bit nervous at first, everyone had a great time swimming and feeding the sting rays. Our second stop was snorkeling at the reef. While the reef was beautiful, we were disappointed in that we only saw one fish. Maybe this was because of the wind and rough water? Our last stop was near a beach for lunch. The lunch (which included burgers, chicken, appetizers, fruit, dessert and drinks) that Alice and Pat put together was absolutely incredible.

Pat and Alice were very informative and friendly. I can't emphasize enough how hard they worked to make the day enjoyable for all. Because the wind was so strong we were unable to use the sails on the boat one way, which made for a long ride across the sound. Instead of giving up and ending the trip early, they made adjustments to the agenda even though it extended the trip time. I would recommend Pat and Alice to anyone that wants a personal trip experience rather than one of the larger companies.

“Only way to truely enjoy a day on the water!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Alice and Pat provided us with a fantastic excursion. I scheduled with Alice through a few e-mails where she helped me with link up instructions. Found them easily at the marina and were headed out to sea within minutes. They are both very personable and friendly and provided us with a wonderful sail and snorkel experience. We were totally alone at our snorkle sites, just us hanging out with the Sting Rays and the reef full of fish. On the trip back in we could see the numerous boats at the ship tour site. We did that two years ago and felt rushed and confined by all the people, plus the guides were not very enthusiastic about their jobs. Pat and Alice seemed to enjoy being out there with us, which made the trip great. We highly recommed sailing with them and we will again if we make it back their way.

“a wonderful sailboat trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

This was by far the best way to see the beautiful water colours and sea-life of Cayman, up close and exclusively ours! Pat and Alice are wonderful hosts and obviously experienced sailors- the whole trip felt very safe and well organised, leaving us to enjoy the fun and spontaneity of sailing across the North Sound and snorkelling in some special places, (away from the more crowded boats) where we saw amazing tropical fish, coral and the famous sting rays! What a day! And to top if off, Alice made us complimentary drinks on the sail home! A definite 'must do' trip!

“Great hosts - phenomenal time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

We took a last minute private charter with this group and as fun and exciting the activities were (swimming with the stingrays and snorkeling a live reef), the hosts/crew Patrick and Alice made the trip a complete delight. I would HIGHLY recommend sailing with them and, if and when we return to Grand Cayman, we will definitely charter with them again.
