A magnifecent sailing experience!

I've gone sailing numerous times in some great locations in in the world. This sailing trip was one of the finest! My wife and I happened to be the only guests and so obviously it was an intimate and low key affair which is just what the pandemic doctor ordered! Captain Vicki is extremely upbeat, and gracious, and knowledgeable . She and her crew mate are clearly very experienced sailors. What you do on the sailboat is your choice. You can help out with the navigation as much or as little as you'd like- or not at all. We did some rope pulling hoisting the sails with clear/kind directions as the captain is also a phenomenal teacher as well! To be clear; this is not the cheapest way to get out on the water but it's also very "chill" and nothing like a party boat or a catamaran venture. This boat hauls ass! We brought our own lunch & beverages as well (FYI: There's really good food options at the marina if you want to grab n go to the boat). Other than that the day was full of fun conversation with the Captain (she's had a MOST interesting career!) and plenty of staring out into the skyline, feeling the wind & sun on our faces and enjoying the vessel being confidently navigated by the crew of two. I cant be emphatic enough; pony up the $ and book your trip with these guys (gal). You'll walk away in the end feeling a tremendous sense of joy from the experience and wont regret the cost in the least.
Brilliant experience in the Eastern Caribbean

Unique experience. We are new to sailing and the tuition provided by Vicky and her deckhand Frazer was superb. If you are looking for something different from the usual run of the mill excursions, then this is the one for you.
Highlight of the week in The Caribbean

Great day off the cruise ship in St Lucia. $25 cab ride gets you to Rodney Bay which is only a couple miles away but takes half and hour. Met Vicky at Cafe Ole and off we went. She had been in excellent contact to coordinate with us via WhatsApp. The cruise line threw us some Covid blocks initially but it wall worked out.

Vicky and Kurtney were excellent hosts, sailors and just great people. I can't say enough good things about this trip. It was our best day in the Caribbean.

I'm a novice sailor and Vicky was also kind enough to help me out with some pointers and some test questions. I flunked the BOWLINE KNOT tying even though I knew how to do it. Just too much pressure. :) Kurtney tried to help too.

This is a great day trip. If you are considering, just do it. I think it lasted about 3 hours and then we had a nice lunch off the dock at the Cafe Ole.

Amazing day sailing

Absolutely fantastic, never done it before and we loved it. We were made very welcome and were taught the ropes.
After a good practice we were off tacking and jibeing under the guidance of the crew. Highly recommend doing this and what great value for money. Make sure you do this !!
Weird extra payment, but sailing itself great.

Very nice trip, really! Vic and her staff did great job and it was nice to be sailing after a while.
Only minus was that we were asked to pay extra after the sailing although we had booked the trip via TripAdvisor (Viator) and paid all the sum we were asked to. So we could not pay less than was asked. If the price is wrong in brokers ad the triporganizer should be dealing with broker and not make the client pay extra this way.
