Private boat trips

Hi

Is it possible to have a private speed boat trip from Palm island? We are travelling in September with another couple and would like a day out on a speed boat.....

Many thanks

Ask for Jean Claude AKA Mr Fabulous on Union Island. Great boat, insured, does very good beach barbecues - and cleans up afterwards! - all round nice guy. He will come and pick you up and plan a great day for you. Don't have my copy of Doyle's to hand so can't look it up but I'm sure someone will post his phone number.

if you have a decent bookstore close to you pop in and look for a copy of Chris Doyle's Guide to the Windward Islands and you will find an ad for Mr Fabulous in the SVG section. It's a great book to have anyway as it is not only an essential pilotage but also a very, very good guide book. Peter, who looks after the boats on Palm will almost certainly know Jean Claude and getting a phone number shouldn't be difficult.

As to cost - depends on how many of you and what you want to do. I'd definitely recommend a lobster barbecue in The Cays and also visit Mayreau. You might want to ask to go to Petit Tabac, one of the less visited of the islands in The Tobago Cays. It's the location where Elizabeth set fire to the rum in the first 'Pirates of' film. You could do Mopion or even Petit Martinique but it's quite a bit further to go.
