I was trying to book a snorkeling tour from the cruise ship and they were sold out, and thank god because it caused me to search for other options which lead me to James and Sherrill. They had their own version of rum punch and their own recipe for grilled chicken, both the best we ever had. I highly recommend this over the cruise ship option. James and Sherrill were awesome!!!

Hi there Brad, family & friends...........Thanks for this review........many of our guests have now commented on trip adviser on our Home Made Rum Punch & our special ingredients with the freshly on board grilled Chicken !................ We must be doing something right !

Our Pick-Up service at the Cruise Ship dock in St Johns made your day easy with NO taxi journey to endure first thing in the morning ! James met you.......short walk to Cat Tales II waiting on the dock .......cannot be simpler !

Your company was well received by Sherrill & myself......especially the athletic back flip diving performance displayed from your family ! ..... Great day you all had out at "Cades Reef" where the snorkelling is always just brilliant !

Tropical Catamaran Sailing here in Jolly Harbour welcomes the Bradley family any time !

Thanks again....James & Sherrill

I booked a 6 hour trip for our family of 8 (kids 17 - 25) and we had a fabulous day. James and Sherrill gave us the perfect day out. Very friendly and extremely professional we absolutely loved it all. Fantastic lunch too!

Hi Gang ! ..........Really great having your combined families (6 kids) on board Cat Tales II......
we were glad of the youthfulness of you all to enjoy the stronger winds we had that sailing day........you guys made the most of the spacious trampoline with the slightly bigger seas splashing up all over you.....great pictures we took !

Calmer location for BBQ Lunch in Deep Bay with it's fantastic sandy beach & a walk up to Fort Barrington..... made your Sailing Cruise "Varied" in what was offered by us ...........we know Mike was in his own world "Driving" Cat Tales on the Caribbean Sea !.....just nice to know we at Tropical catamaran Sailing are fore filling the dreams of our guests !


Nice Review guys........come back soon !........James & Sherrill

and thank you for your TA review !

The hotel recommended Cat Tales II and we were not disappointed. We went for a lovely sunset sail. James and Sherrill could not have been nicer or more welcoming. Our only regret is that we didn't book a longer trip!

Simply Romanic all the Way !......thanks N&A for TA review

Our Sun Set Cruise takes a truly relaxing feel........& our 20th Anniversary guests certainly showed it !....you were smiling for the whole 3 hour Catamaran Sailing Cruise.....it was a dream come true on the Caribbean Sea..............and what about the unusual "Silver" Sun Set.......just beautiful !

Our delicious Wines & Canapés just add the perfect "Finishing Touch" for our Guests !

You say you're only regret was not having a longer sailing cruise..........we'll hold a six hour Sailing Cruise open for your next trip to Antigua Guys !......Cat Tales II is waiting !

All the best for the next 20 years !........Nice meeting you N&A...........James & Sherrill

Four of us booked Cat Tales with James and Sherrill and it was one of the best days of our holiday in Antigua. From the moment we booked, the communication between us and James was great, we were collected from our resort bang on time and arrived at Jolly Harbour to be greeted by a very friendly James! After a safety brief we set sail. Sherrill was on hand providing us with her wonderful rum punch - it really is great! We stopped for a snorkel and a delicious BBQ chicken lunch with delicious wine on Cades Reef (we were so lucky as only we were there!), the food was fantastic and along with the warmth and friendliness of James and Sherrill it was fabulous!

We then sailed back to the harbour wishing we had booked a sunset sail with them so we could carry on our fantastic day!

Nothing was too much trouble and they are two fantastic people who love what they do!

Cat Tales is a gorgeous catamaran and is a fantastic boat to go snorkelling off!

All in all if we return to Antigua it will be the first thing I'll be booking! It was my partners birthday and he said it was possibly his best birthday (and he's had a few!).

I can not recommend this day enough! Plus with the lovely touches of James being on hand with his camera and capturing some great memories! Thank you again!

Thank you again James and Sherrill!

My husband and I joined James and Sherrell on Cat Tails II last evening for the sunset sail 3 hour tour. We had an amazing time! They were so accommodating and friendly, we felt like we were sailing with friends we had known for years. The rum punch, wine, and food was great, too!

"Best Sunset Sail"...............thank you....Nancy & Daniel

The best atmosphere is created on our 3 hour Sunset Sailing Cruise..........the dialog between guest & the crew on Cat Tales II is...... as you say.... "really like having friends for years".....This all just comes natural to us James & Sherrill at Tropical Catamaran Sailing in Antigua.....No1 Trip Adviser in Jolly Harbour !

Nancy did a great job on the helm of the Catamaran.........Driving Cat Tales under full sail (no motors) like she owed her own boat !......our Punch & Canapés went down great as well.

Bye for now ........because we know you'll be back !
