Your vessel for the day will be none other than the “Scaramouche”. This 60 ft schooner was featured in the Disney blockbuster movie, Pirate’s of the Caribbean. While we are not be able to provide the same crew as the movie’s cast, the captain and his friendly and helpful crew will be on hand. The Scaramouche is one of the last working schooners in the Caribbean and offers plenty of space, comfort and shade from the scorching sun. There is something majestic about this big old schooner that stands as a testament of pure island craftsmanship. There is a kind of regal feeling sailing on board this giant wooden boat where the sound of power engines are absent and all you hear are the creaking of the rigging and the sounds of the waves.
Sit back enjoy the ride and the lovely scenery all around. The green hills the roll down to sugar white sand beaches; the gorgeous blue and white skyline provides a back drop and the myriad of hues that blend together in the beautiful tropical waters is splendid.

At Mayreau the population is approximately 200 and there is only one road. The Tobago Cays are five uninhabited islands which leaves nothing but you nature and its beauty. Both islands offer good opportunities for snorkelling and equipment will be available. The crystal clear waters provide great visibility to view an array of stunning marine life.
