We had an absolutely magnificent time on this day trip. The trip out to Little Bay had greater than expected winds, which meant we flew along at a very fast pace. Arawak is a fast Catamaran, and there's a lot of spray. The crew were competent and extremely friendly. There were plenty of refreshments, and everyone aboard had a great... More

Amazing day on bluebeard! We sailed and I mean sailed to Anguilla. Been on catermans before with engine on all day but this fantastic captain and crew had the sails up straight away! Captain Ross gave us loads of interesting information about the island as we sailed and Gwen the hostess kept our glasses filled with her amazing bloody Mary's.... More

What I am about to write can’t describe the how great this sail was. I was initially disappointed because they had to cancel the sail I was initially signed up for fortunately we were on the island for 13 days and they finally came through. This was true sailing from beginning to end, sails up and flying across the water... More

On January 2 2017, 11 of us went on Bluebeard's Heineken catamaran to Anguilla, and more specifically Shoal Bay. What a fantastic day. It all started first thing in the morning where we met the owner Alain who flawlessly and efficiently performed our registration, as well as taking our lunch order. Shortly after we were ported to the catamaran, and... More

We've been going to St Maarten for some 30 years so we've been on most of the day charter boats over the years. We like to sail but many of these "sail" trips motor - sail or don't even attempt to get the sails up. Not so with Arawak. The sails were up right after take-off from their base location... More

Loved this tour! The crew was very pleasant and accommodating. We had a beautiful day to sail with great music, snacks, and beverages. Fortunately, we got along with the other people on the boat. We were the best of friends by the time we reached Anguilla. The beachfront lunch was delicious. The ocean near Anguilla was rough but it made... More

Fantastic day sail aboard the fast catamaran 'Arawak'. We're sailors at home and were looking for a real sailing experience in the Caribbean. We couldn't have found a more perfect day trip. Captain Rodney takes great (and well justified) pride in keeping 'Arawak' in top shape for going fast!! Even though the winds weren't that great, we managed to fly... More

We like to sail. We had a fantastic day on the arawak sail boat. This is a racing catamaran, if you want a thrill that is the boat to take. From 9:15 to 4:30 pm, we went from island to island on unspoiled beaches. The expert crew made us feel very secure even if we were almost flying. Sailing does... More

Being on multiple catamaran trips throughout different countries, this one was the most mediocre. First off, how does a catamaran play elevator music. We had one of the guests plug in his phone so we could actually listen to regular music. The drinks on board were very nice and the staff was accommodating. HOWEVER the lunch on Anguilla was practically... More

We wanted to sail and this boat did just that. Originally booked for a Monday sail the wind was not cooperative so we rescheduled for Friday. It was worth the wait! Plan for a full day of sailing as it does not return to dock in time to get guests back to cruise ships. Plan to get drenched as you... More
