Captain Sebastian and Destiny and Crew provide an unmatched, memorable sailing experience on a historic yawl. Wonderful lunch and the opportunity to sail this historic ship make for wonderful tales when you get back home.

Our hotel recommended chartering Shalamar and we were very happy with their advice. We spent a fantastic half day on the water with Vieques Classic Charter. Shalamar is a beautiful, lovingly cared for boat with a fascinating history. Seeing Vieques from the water is definitely not to be missed. We had a marvelous, very personalized sail with the wonderful company of Sebastian and Nacki. The food was also quite delicious and the beverages hit the spot! The time passed so quickly but we enjoyed every minute. A great way to experience the island life!

Sebastian and Naki (sp?) treat you so well on Sebastian's beautiful boat! They bend over backwards to be sure you are comfortable and having a great time. Lovely sail, delicious lunch, nice swim. Like hanging out with a few friends for the day.

I want to preface this by saying my husband and I have been coming to the island of Vieques for 21 years. Every time we came we have taken a sail tour. This last time our family had the wonderful opportunity to sail with Capatain Sebastian and Nacky aboard the beatiful and expertly crafted ship. She is obviously loved and cared for and that is how we felt aboard her. Captain Sebastion took excellent care of this family if six. He catered to all of our ages and needs as they arose and seemed to have been able to predict the needs as they arose, which is a gift in itself. The captain kept us engaged and entertained for hours, even allowing our youngest son to be a part of the day by taking the helm, thus insuring the title of The Best Christmas Ever! He talked about it the whole day!!! They constantly served drinks of all types and also served a most delicious lunch. This was by far the best sailing experience we have ever had, as a mother of four old habits of always helping are not easily surrendered, but the captain quite gently steered me towards relaxation the whole day. Not only was the ship beautiful, the Captain and crew charming and entertaining, the Island waters captivating, but I felt that my family and I were expertly tended to and that is not easily come by..

We went on our honeymoon to Vieques and spent most of our days exploring the wonderful beaches and doing some snorkeling. On our second to last day, we decided we'd love to see the island by water and take an excursion. Sebastian was recommended to us by our bio bay tour guide (Rebecca), and it exceeded our expectations. We actually ended up being the only two on the tour, so we had the entire boat to ourselves with Sebastian and his tremendously nice crew, Destiny and Soleil. They were all very accommodating and we had the most pleasant day on the boat with all of them. Sebastian has great knowledge of all things sailing and you can tell he takes pride in his craft and making sure everyone who he welcomes on his boat has an enjoyable day. The entire crew genuinely were enjoying their day on the boat as well, which made it feel like we were just spending the day with new friends. The snorkeling was fun and the lunch that was prepared on he boat was delicious. It was a perfect sailing day, and ended up being one of the best days of our honeymoon. We HIGHLY recommend taking a sail with Vieques Classic Charter!

Thank you very much Sebastian, Destiny and Soleil :)
