Towels, hats, sunscreen and sunglasses. During the winter months the sea temperature can drop to 78f, so you may want to bring a long sleeve top for after your snorkel, especially on an afternoon trip.
No. We do not provide catering, however on a full day we can moor up near a beach bar on St Kitts or Nevis, and we do have plenty of fridge and cooler space if you would like to order lunch through your hotel or villa manager.
We do provide snorkels, masks, noodles and life jackets, however, you may feel more comfortable bring your own mask and snorkel, we have plenty of storage space below decks.
If you have a moustache you may find your masks leaks – your prickly stubble pushes the rubber seal away from your skin, breaking the seal and allowing the seawater to tease your nose, we recommend shaving that holiday beard prior to departure!
If your mask is new, spend 20 mins rubbing a mild abrasive like toothpaste on the inside of the lenses, this removes a thin residue leftover from the manufacturing process and stops your mask from fogging up!
We suggest checking with us a day or so before to make sure all is looking good, Captain Miles can advise if the conditions are looking fair, and if not we will try to reschedule depending on availability.
We have a 24-hour cancellation policy, where full payment is expected for no shows and late cancellations.
During the festive season, a 72-hour cancellation policy is in place, where full payment is expected. If the weather is deemed unsuitable for a pleasurable day sail, then, by mutual agreement, the charter will be cancelled and no payment will be expected.
We find that very few people suffer with seasickness whilst sailing with us, however, if you typically suffer from motion sickness we recommend taking a pill at least an hour before boarding (they are hard to source on island so please bring your own from home). It’s also a good idea to have a good night sleep, not too much rum the day before, and a solid breakfast also helps!
On a typical full day charter we are limited to sailing around St Kitts and Nevis exclusively. The neighboring islands are between 40-70 miles away and are a little too far to reach in one day. Sailing farther afield would involve 6-10 hours of open water cruising which some guests may find a bit daunting.
There are a couple of local companies that do offer this service, please contact us and we can give you our recommendations.
