Owner description: The captain will set the sails around the Galle Fort and its lighthouse, where you will get a magnificent view of the old fort, then we will sail to Unawatuna bay near the Japanese Pagoda. The Captain will drop the anchor in Jungle beach. There you can swim, snorkel and do some stand up paddle board with our life guard. While you enjoy the water, the Chef takes out the plancha-BBQ.

My Wife and I chartered the Jade for 3 days in February and it was an utterly fantastic,hugely memorable experience and incredible value for money too.
The captain Vianney and his crew were amazing. Incredibly friendly andsuper helpful, they simply couldn't do enough for us.
Paddle Boarding at Sunset was fantastic, as was waking up the following morning to see Sperm Whales swimming alongside us. Days spent jumping into crystal blue waters while the crew cooked lunch, and drinking a glass of wine on the deck at sunset were simply incredible.
That brings me to the cost, it is simply insanely cheap for such an amazing experience of having your own boat and crew, doing something similar in Europe would be prohibitively expensive. I cannot recommend this enough, we will be back!

We took a 3h morning sailing cruise at Bentota. The catamaran itself, the crew, views, feeling and service was really top quality. Nothing less than in Europe. You get to the sea, sailing, snorkeling, a nice small island with a lighthouse, snacks, wine, etc. Truly recommend for anyone who wants to enjoy a half day leisure at the sea.

We went Sailing for the first time ,and it was fantastic experience truely ...

We were staying @hikkaduwa, but the team (Alexandre) arranged for a pick and drop from our villa to Beruwala ...

The crew of the ship were really good , they not only helped us make our experience memorable, but took really good care of us.
We sailed with a movie crew, so that itself made it so assorted , we were really pampered . Crew member Kumaran deserves special mention, as he took us around the island and helped us spot the best corals and fishes around . On our way back , we had music , food ,some drink s ,and clicked loads of pictures with crew :)

Very well managed by team : Sail Lanka Charter .

Its highly recommended for travelers visiting south sril lanka.
