the best place to watch sunset

Join us to enjoy a beautiful sunset from the best vantage point- under sail on our catamaran with only the gentle sound of the wind & the waves. Watch the sky change colors over the island with unbeatable views of our volcanic mountains. Pupus and light refreshments are included, and we have plenty of ice on-board if you prefer to bring your own beverage. Our crew will take care of your every need.

Items to bring aboard

Wear a swimsuit if you wish to swim, or clothing you don't mind getting wet from errant spray. If you are prone to seasickness, we recommend taking Bonine antiemetic before your charter.

Included with your charter

We provide light snacks & refreshments on every charter. Catering or special orders can be facilitated upon request. We keep towels, snorkel gear, reef safe sunscreen, lotion, shampoo & conditioner on board.

Scheduled times

Our sunset sail launches at 5:30pm in the summer (Apr 15 - Aug 31) and 4:30pm in the winter (Sep 1 - Apr 14) so we're on the water during golden hour.


Private charter starting at $795. A note on tipping your crew.
