A week aboard Jalapeno is a trip of a lifetime – and my family and I have been fortunate to have sailed on her twice!
It is difficult to put into words what a wonderful experience sailing the islands is. To be on the water, smelling the salt air, feeling the sun on your face, and enjoying a breeze is a feeling that can’t be topped. We were able to visit beaches that wouldn’t be accessible without a boat. We were able to enjoy the best meals prepared by welcoming locals that we would have never know about since they are off the beaten path. We were able to learn sailing basics and, if we wanted, help with some of the sailing duties.
Both trips Ray and Jennifer were the ultimate hosts. They planned the itinerary around our interests – from snorkeling, to exploring the islands, to relaxing on the beach. Delicious onboard meals were prepared according to our likes and dislikes, all the while being able to try new delicacies only the islands were able to offer. Our comfort and enjoyment were their number one priority!
Even though we just returned from our sailing vacation, my family and I are already planning, and very much looking forward to, our next trip onboard Jalapeno with Ray and Jennifer!
We stayed on Yarika for 3 nights with our children (5 and 9) and had an absolute awesome time with Captain Steve.
The boat is clean and very roomy.
Steve could not have been more gracious. He was wonderful with our children and went out of his way to make our time on Yarika memorable.
Thanks for the fun Steve ! We’ll hopefully see ya around the islands in the next couple months.
