Christmas on the 65 ft sloop DRUMBEAT 1 - the guests said:
Captain Jeff knows the great secluded snorkeling spots.
He was experienced seamen and used caution when winds were above 15 knots.
Captain Jeff took us to shore when we wanted to go, no questions.
1st mate/cook was fantastic. She helped dock, more, anchor, winch the sheets, clean cabins, prepare fantastic appetizers and meals, etc. We couldn't ask for more.
Drumbeat was very comfortable and well maintained.
Any maintenance that was done was in the middle of the night like a well managed resort. 5 stars.
Itinerary was excellent. Captain Jeff knew all the great secluded snorkeling spots and took advantage of them when winds were above 15 knots. He had safety in mind.
There was plenty of snorkeling and dive equipment on board. There was also a wind surfer and kayak on board that we did not use.
5 star food and drinks.
We are discussing a repeat. My family really enjoyed this trip. It was fantastic.
