“A great sail on a storied yacht”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

The wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our four-hour sail out of Esperanza with Capt Wyatt on Shalamar. This classic boat sails so differently than modern boats - much smoother and so much more stylish. Capt Wyatt and First-mate Nackey La Torre were ebullient but professional hosts and we were happy to share their passion for this unique and historic vessel. The lunch was perfect for the setting and very enjoyable. A top-notch time.

“The Perfect Sail”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

A group of us chartered the Shalamar for a day sail last Sunday. Actually we had scheduled a sail on the Shalamar a month earlier but Captain Sebastian (thankfully) recommended that we not go out at that time due to difficult winds. From the time of the original conversations regarding the sail to the sail itself everything was perfect. Sebastian and crew are consummate professionals whose only objective is to insure that their guests have a memorable experience aboard their pride and joy! We sailed out of Esperanza to Sun Bay, where we dropped anchor for swimming, snorkeling, relaxing and an exceptional lunch prepared by prepared by chef extraordinaire Elizabeth Destiny. I recommend a sail with Vieques Classic Charter to anyone visiting Vieques. You will not regret it!

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.

“A Wonderful Experience - Highly Recommended”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

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!

“Amazing day.”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

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.
