If you are a sailing enthusiast, you will fall in love with Sea Smoke.  Her hull lines were inspired by a very successful SORC competitor and she loves going to weather.  We enjoy putting Sea Smoke through her paces and hope to share the
excitement with you.

 

The Virgin Islands are one of the Caribbean's premier snorkel and dive sites with approximately 90 islands, islets and cays, and we take pride in finding the best sites. There are different environments in which to snorkel--barrier reefs, cliffs and mangroves to name a few.

 

Barrier reefs protect the islands which they surround. They are usually on the windward sides of islands and break the waves and protect against erosion. Fish, especially larger fish, thrive on this fresh open ocean water.

Cliffs usually are excellent sites for enjoying seafans and large sponges. Octopus love hiding in the rock formations.

 

Mangroves don't look like much from the topside but they play a big role in the underwater environment. First, they filter the water. Second, because their roots extend down into the water they make a perfect nursery for baby fish. The mangrove roots grow closely together and do not allow the larger fish in to eat the baby fish.

 

Leslie has had her Red Cross Lifesaving Certification and has been a Life Saving and swimming instructor as well as a water aerobics instructor.  She has taught swimming lessons to all age groups - infants to seniors.  This experience is valuable when it comes to first time snorkelers.

 

Swimming access off and on the boat is simple with the reverse transom, handrails and ladder. Like to dive?  We will be happy to arrange a rendezvous with a dive company.

 

From St. John to Virgin Gorda walking trails abound. Walks to explore old sugar plantation ruins and nature walks where you can see hawks, orchids, mongoose and hermit crabs. Or climb to the top of Norman Island's Spy Glass Hill and sit where the pirates used to watch for approaching ships to rob.
