We've sailed on Beluga twice with Captain Jim; once in 2008 and again in 2012. Our first experience was just amazing... Lovely weather, calm seas, just perfect! He is so knowledgable and a very interesting man. Our second trip the weather was not as great, but still very enjoyable. I would recommend this trip over any commercial fleet. I miss T & C! My favorite Captain Jim quite is, "I could live in the big city and vacation in the tropics 2 weeks a year or I could live in the tropics and vacation in the city 2 weeks a year..." Of course he chose the latter, and I'd bet he is enjoying a lot more if his days than those of us who live in the city!

Great combination of nice, comfortable, smooth sailing catamaran with "organic" feel (Captain Tim built the boat himself) and gracious crew (Tim & H). We booked an afternoon sail until sunset. Had a great time sailing and snorkeling. The sunset along with the customary toast with H's grog (double rations) was truly memorable. Definitely a highlight of the trip to Provo. If you are looking to maximize time under sail and have a great experience without the crowds go with Sail Beluga.

Getting a private charter with Sail Beluga is certainly a must! What a way to celebrate my husband's birthday! We had a morning cruise (unfortunately, we weren't able to reserve a sunset cruise in the afternoon because it had already been booked; highly recommend reserving your time slot asap). Captain Nik was just an absolute delight - he shared so many amazing stories with us and made the trip just so much more enjoyable! This was certainly the highlight of our entire trip! It's an absolutely gorgeous boat and we were fortunate enough to have the best possible weather and conditions for our sail! Nik was totally relaxed and let us decide how we wanted to spend our day. We snorkeled on the barrier reef and enjoyed sailing along the smaller islands by Provo. The cold beers went down so unbelievably smooth with the sea salt on our lips. The fresh watermelons were unbelievably refreshing and such a perfect touch. Fantastic rum punch made fresh on the boat and the most delicious cheeses/meat board! Talk about getting completely pampered!!! Can't express just how much fun we had! It was truly an unforgettable experience! HIGHLY recommend!!!

Thanks to Captain Nick for a great afternoon and evening. Certainly a highlight of our stay. So many great memories from this great day. Snorkeling on the barrier and then a race into the Atlantic with a wonderful and peaceful island combing sunset sail home. Just amazing!

On July 26th we spent an afternoon sailing with Captain Nik and H on Beluga. It was the highlight of my week in Turks & Caicos. I will never forget this experience. What a beautiful sailboat and a gorgeous day on the water. Captain Nik was more than accommodating. He made suggestions for the day but was very flexible in how we wanted to spend it. We went snorkeling, enjoyed sailing, snorkeled for sand dollars off a quiet beach, then sailed along the coastline while watching the sunset and enjoying appetizers and cocktails. Captain Nik and H shared their adventures and background with us and kept the six of us laughing throughout the afternoon. I loved my day on Beluga! Thank you for an awesome day!!!!!
