“Not worth it!!!”
Reviewed 2 April 2014 via mobile

My family and I booked a trip on the sail boat and we maybe only sailed for 20 minutes out of the whole day. We had to drive around the bay that we were suppose to snorkeo in for 45 minutes until they could get the anchor down. When we were finally anchored the snorkeling was average at best. Ate some ok food and had a few drinks and before we even got a chance to do anything else they were pulling up the anchor to head in. There was some rain coming but nothing terrible the put up one sail for just a little bit and then turned the motor back on for the rest of the trip. Got back to esperanza before 4 it was supposed to go until 5 and even after they screwed around for 45 minutes getting the anchor down earlier I know problems can happen but at least make the trip as long as it is supposed to be. I am definitely very disappointed in this tour was not even close to the 800 bucks.

“Great day on and in the water”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

My family and I spent a day with Capt. Tom and Capt. Sukey on the Caribbean Lady and had a wonderful time. They took us to a beautiful snorkeling spot and we were able to spend a long, leisurely time exploring the underwater beauty. Food was plentiful and tasty and they easily accommodated my need for dairy free food including a very yummy dessert! Our boys, ages 18,17 and 14 helped put up and trim sails - fun and a good learning experience! Conversation was easy and welcome, and yet, we had plenty of space and time to enjoy the sail as a family. The bonus service? -- we had brought our own snorkeling gear (not necessary, but we had our own) and left the dive bag on the boat -- 30 minutes after returning to our hotel, the hotel manager showed up at our door with the gear explaining that Capt. Tom had just dropped it off. Impressive as our hotel was not near the harbor. All in all a great day - we were in good hands!

“Worst day ever at sea”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

This was a horrible experience. Instead of the peace and quiet one would expect on a sailboat all you could hear was a terrible static from the auto helm. It was like tuning your radio to pure static and turning the volume to max. When we asked what it was the answer was the auto helm. I would have expected the captain to stop being so lazy and take the helm instead he just sat there. The food was bad cold cuts so don't pay attention to the comments of the chef we own a boat and charter often this was by far our single worst experience

“Lovely Vieques Sail”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

Have been coming to this lovely island for 15 years. Finally found a boat that allowed us to see the coast from the sea, snorkel, and enjoy good food, drink and lively conversation. The Caribbean Lady is a very nice, clean, we'll-equipped boat with a gracious and considerate hosts. Best of all, Captain Tom knows these waters and weather conditions. Highly recommended.

Tom.. would like to be back next week.
