About
We offer real SAILING ADVENTURES, from one to multipel day's. We do this on board our 65 foot luxury sailing catamaran, around the A-B-C islands. Our TOPPER is a sailing trip from Curaçao to Klein Curaçao with overnight stays at anchor at this tropical paradise. When the other tourists have left the island, you will feel like Jack Sparrow and, for the older ones, Robinson Crusoe! Our ship is fully equipped for diving safaris with various complete diving sets and even with its own diving compressor. We also have all kinds of "water toys" on board such as SUPs, Canoes, Water Skis, Wakeboard and snorkel sets.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wooow!! Unbelievable. An unforgettable experience. With Erwin and Jet for 4 days to Klein Curaçao. Adventure, fun, wining and dining, snorkeling and diving. All this floating on a luxury catamaran off the beach of a small paradise. Each couple has a beautiful cabin with their own bathroom, peace and space. 4 days of recreation, rest and relaxation in a perfect balance. All this together with the very hospitable couple Erwin & Jet who complement these days with fun and delicious food, with the realization that these would be our most beautiful holiday days ever. Thank you darlings 🙏🤗
During the return trip we were accompanied by a beautiful dolphin who showed us the way back to Curaçao. We called her Paradise.

It was a amazing sailing trip on the large catamaran, the Shangri-La, with to other couples, the food was fantastic, thanks also to Riette, the ambiance on board was great and Erwin is a very experience skipper.
We will certainly go back on board for the next trip to see the playing dolphins and the white beaches like “Klein Curacao “

The best part of our trip to Curacao was the sailing. I did a lot of research as I love to go on a private yacht when on vacation as I could never afford to own one. I contacted a few sailing excursions and found they were all tourist traps. They were packed booze cruises and they don't even put up the sails! They just motor you to a cove to go swimming.

I got lucky and found one of the few real sailboat charters. Sv Shangri-La is owned by Erwin Damen and his wife. It's a beautiful 65 foot catamaran that they live on and have crossed the Atlantic. Our family of 5 had a great day on the water. It was a bit rough with gusts to 30 knots and seas 3-5 foot to make it quite an adventure but the boat and captain made it perfectly safe. We sailed for 8 hours and then they made us a great lunch with cold beverages to end a great day. They also do multi day trips out to Klein. It was the highlight of out trip.

Had a great time sailing, swimming, eating and sailing again! A day with a 'choppy' sea, good wind, skilled and hospitable captain and first mate! It was difficult to leave with the closing drinks. To be repeated.

I enjoyed the wonderful trip to Klein Curaçao and the hospitality of Erwin and Riëtte. It feels like a warm welcome. The conviviality, the fantastic ship, the possibility of diving and of course the beautiful weather, complete the whole picture. Highly recommended if you want to discover Curaçao on the water in a relaxing way.
