The weather had been quite chaotic prior to our trip, and we had heard of a rough trip to the Tobago Cays. The Friendship Rose can't control the weather, and had cancelled a few trips for safety reasons, but we lucked out with a stellar day sailing to Mustique. We had a small group that got along well, and by the time we rounded Moonhole we knew we were in for a great day. Moonhole itself is something to see, very eerie and mind boggling. We actually saw some people still occupying the last few homes...incredible. We were able to get under full sail on the way to Mustique, enjoying the champagne and lovely breakfast. Because there was only 9 of us doing the tour around the island, we were able to share a "taxi" at a cost of $10 US per person. We had a little drive around, seeing some of the local life and the manicured mansions, then we were dropped off at Macaroni beach for an hour or so of swimming. Back to Basil's Bar for a beer (at your own cost), a fantastic lunch on the boat, amazing snorkelling at the reef, then a lovely sail back to Bequia. From start to finish the crew made us feel pampered and safe. There are some really interesting stories to be heard from them, so take the time to ask questions. I will say that you're taking a chance with the weather, but we didn't pay until the morning we were leaving, so we could have cancelled if things looked ominous. Also, the sail to Mustique is much shorter than the Tobago Cays, and our day was quite full enough for us. Bring lots of sunscreen, especially for your lips, some snacks for the beach and ask for water bottles before you leave for the island tour. If the ocean is agreeable, you'll have a fantastic day.
