We chartered a motor boat for a day with a 9.00am departure. On arrival somehow the boat we'd agreed to charter "Blue Goat" had become the "Azure" albeit a similar vessel. At 9.00 we were advised that the supermarket had opened late so they were running late in order to obtain provisions, surprising as we had stopped at the supermarket... More

Thank you for the review - we do appreciate all comments and am sorry you got anr experience that was less than perfect . We can see where it might be (and obviously was) confusing but Blue Goat and Azure are the same vessel. 'Blue Goat Charters' operates the motor vessel Azure, it's a Mainship 32. We do apologize for... More

We signed up for Yacht Racing but were the only couple so we got upgraded to a private charter. James and Simon were our crew and they were excellent, very knowledgable and confidence inspiring we had a great experience and as complete sailing novices we were amazed at how fast the yacht went and how exciting it was.

Total confusion at the start of the day. One couple was told to arrive at 7.30am; another couple was told they would be picked up at 8.30am; and another couple was told to be ready at 8am at a different location. Total screw up. So instead of starting at 8am, we eventually got started at 9.15am. The course content is... More

My brother and I did this course to enable us to charter a boat in the Mediterranean next year. We choose Ondeck in Falmouth Antigua, having seen them during our visits to Antigua race week. This was a good choice as they met and even surpassed our expectations. Our British instructor was very experienced and pushed us to accomplish more... More

Well we got 12 folks together and sailed to St Kitts for a couple of days with Ondeck's Farr 65. Let me tell you the expert, friendly crew had all of the first time sailors at ease and feeling safe and welcome. The boat handled perfectly and was a pleasure to steer under the watchful eyes of the Ondeck experts.... More

Second time I've been on this lads trip onboard Ondecks 65' Farr. Pete recommended we go to Saba and that proved to be a result, fabulous little island! St.Maarten afterwards does what it says on the tin and everyone came away satiated with something for everyone-yee ha. The yacht Juno was great for 8 lads, bit basic but it meant... More

My husband was the one who really wanted to go on a sailing yacht to have more of a hands-on experience. I was a little hesitant. That being said, it was a great 2 hours of sailing EVEN with some big waves due to the storm the day before. Capt. Kishawn and first mate Sadique made me feel comfortable and... More

You MUST look up Ondeck when you're in Antigua and head out for a half- or full-day sail. Not only will you be amazed by the beauty of the sea, but you will appreciate Ondeck's expertise and personable crew. They made the adventure so much fun!
