What to Expect

Your private sailing adventure will be aboard The Lark, a 40-foot Jeanneau sailing yacht, or their newly added 42 foot Catalina. This is NOT a "booze cruise" packed with other tourists. Instead, the experienced crew will take your family or group on an exciting, fun-filled journey along the Jamaican coastline, where you will see stunning views of the mainland and have an opportunity to swim or snorkel in the beautiful Caribbean sea.

Your sailing trip will include stops for swimming in the Caribbean sea, or snorkeling over a coral reef, where you will see many different types of colorful fish. If someone in your group isn't an experienced snorkeler, the crew will be happy to teach them everything they need to know.
