Tropical Catamaran – Cat Tales: We were greeted by and sailed with James and his wife Sherrill who originated from the UK. We took a 6 hour sailing trip that included snorkeling, swimming and lunch. The rum punch and wadadali beer was available throughout the sail. James cooked up a lovely chicken dish on the “barbi” and his wife prepared a salad with fruit. One of the best meals we had all week. After a belly full of food and a few rum punches some of us took a snooze while we sailed to our next destination and a swim. The sailing conditions were perfect for a relaxing afternoon. James and Sherrill spoke about the island and gave us helpful tips on where to eat and go. They were an interesting couple who relocated from the UK to Jolly Harbour. This was a private sail for the four us with no crowds – well worth the cost. I highly recommend doing this sailing trip! "Happy Sailing"

We recently sailed with Captain James and Sherrill and couldn't have asked for a better day. We were traveling with 10 people and part of this group consisted of a 5 year old, 2 year old, and 7 month old. Captain James couldn't have made us feel more welcome and were so accommodating for our small children. The lobster lunch prepared by Sherrill was one of the highlights of our ENTIRE trip!

Two days after we were sailing with Captain James we were in St. Lucia and chartered a catamaran there as well. While we still enjoyed this trip it didn't even compare to the fun we had with James and Sherrill. We will be back to Antigua soon and will be sailing with them for at least two days!

As someone who has done this in St. Thomas, St. Lucia, and Antigua I have yet to come across a better experience than this!

Hello Jeff........Nice review posted !........Cheers

Well travelled guests are probably the best form of review to have, comparing other experiences to us -Tropical Catamaran Sailing in Jolly Harbour - and having a first class out come !

Your group pick up at the Cruise ship dock in St Johns followed by a great six hour cruise with 2 youngsters & a baby of 7 months on board plus 6 x Lobster Lunches felt like a true family occasion ! ........As you say Jeff...."accommodating for our small children"....Sherrill & myself pride ourselves on personal contact with parents & safety when children or indeed babies are on Cat Tales II

Hope to see you guys again !...Regards James & Sherrill

Had a great time with Captain James and Sherrill. One of the highlights of our week long stay in Antigua. We were a party of 3 and Captain & hostess were a joy. 4 hour cruise from Jolly Harbour to Deep Bay with a hike up Fort Barrington. Delicious lobster and rum punches. Kudos to Cat Tales II and crew!

On our recent trip to Antigua, we spent a terrific day with Captain James and his first mate (in more than a nautical sense since she's his wife), Sherrill, on their catamaran for a sail off of Antigua to a lovely beach where, after a swim and snorkel over a sunken wreck, they served up a terrific champagne and lobster lunch which was included in the price of the sail. If ever in Antigua, I highly recommend spending 6 hours with Capt. James and Sherrill. It will make your Caribbean holiday truly memorable.
