This is a MUST do when you are in curaçao! My favorite day of a week long vacation. The staff was very attentive and helpful...Constantly walking around offering drinks and delicious homemade sangria! Lunch was BBQ (again delicious food) There were plenty of comfortable spots to lay out on boat both in sun and in the shade. There was ample... More

Great crew, great trip. My wife and I were totally thrilled by the crews attentiveness. The trip was wonderful. We saw many sights, that we would not have seen otherwise. Will do the trip again when we return.

Excellent way to spend our port time in Curacao. Easy walk to the departure point, good time frame. Glad we were there on a Sunday to take this sailing, snorkeling trip. It is just as described at the site, with hamburger lunch and open bar. Very helpful staff. Plenty of comfortable seating. Bathrooms available and functional, but somewhat challenging to... More

Our group of 25 from age 7-57 had a wonderful trip on New Year's Day, 2017. We motored to Tug Boat where we had a great time snorkeling. Then headed to a fun swimming area. The crew prepared a yummy lunch and there was an open bar throughout the trip. The ship had both shaded and sunny areas to enjoy.... More

About 20 passengers on our day trip on Christmas Day. Trip diverted from normal stops to Kokomo tourist beach where many enjoyed jumping into the water from the ships bowsprit. They were having a wonderful time. Crew were in the water as safety without being asked or directed by the captain. Just one example of the attentiveness of the crew.... More

The ship conveniently leaves from downtown Willemstad and goes past the floating Queen Emma bridge. Takes you south along the coast to Tug Boat for snorkelling and then to a second stop for snacks with a nice beach for relaxing and swimming while the crew sets the sails for the return trip (snorkelling not that great here). The captain and... More

Captain Phil and Laara made this trip "over the top". We booked last minute. We were on a cruise and did a quick Trip Advisor search for something interesting on the water. The Insulinde is an 85 year old, 200 ton, 100 ft (127' with the bowsprit) sailing ship. The cruise was well organized, attentive crew and lovely spots for... More
