Will we see land the whole time?

In very rare cases would we ever lose sight of land. The trip to Anegada is one of the few times and depends on cloud conditions and visibility. 

Will we be moving all the time?

The boat obviously will move around and roll a bit at times but every evening we will stop the boat on a mooring ball, anchor or even occasionally at a marina for more protection from the wind and waves. Most guests would call the boat movement a gentle rocking, just enough for the best sleep I’ve ever had.

Does the itinerary ever change?

Yes, we change the itinerary all the time based on guest preference and of course always weather dependant. We’re happy to stay longer or move earlier when its appropriate but keep in mind that we usually have several things scheduled ahead of time like island excursions and restaurant reservations to be sure we get you to the best experiences the islands have to offer.
