Need further assistance?
Will we have time to go ashore the islands we visit?
Absolutely, we want you to experience them too. We will do our utmost to balance sailing with time ashore, as these amazing Caribbean islands have a lot to offer ashore.
How many people will be on board with me?
We are commercially coded to accommodate a maximum of six guests. The maximum number of people ever on board would be eight, including Neil and Sam.
What is the general mix of people who come on your trips?
We welcome single and solo travellers, couples and small groups of friends and family. This is a great way of meeting new people and making new friends.
How do we know if we will get along with the other guests onboard?
This is a common question or thought. We have found that people who are drawn to this kind of quality adventure are usually outgoing and friendly people, who may have travelled extensively already, and are keen to experience a different kind of vacation. Surprisingly, many of our guests have never sailed on a boat before, and find they love it. Our shared charters are very popular and most enjoyable, and our guests meet and make new friends on each trip.
Can I smoke on board?
No, we operate a strict no smoking policy. Smoking of any form of tobacco is not allowed onboard or on the dock next to the boat.
The use of e-cigarettes is fine.
What are the sleeping arrangements?
All four of our private cabins are queen-sized and have their own heads (toilet and shower).
All cabins are booked as single cabins as we do not expect you to share a cabin with someone you do not know. Couples can obviously share our cabins.
Families or groups booking an entire yacht will arrange their own sleeping arrangements.
I am tall, is there enough headroom on Nemo?
Absolutely! Neil is 6’2″ / 1.9m and he is able to walk through Nemo with no issues. We also have two aft cabins that have beds that are each 6’8″ / 2.1m long.
Can we go diving during a sailing trip?
Yes, absolutely. Diving in the Caribbean is incredible. We have organised Rendezvous dives with the best local dive centres in the BVI, Antigua, Guadeloupe, St Vincent, Bequia, Carriacou and Grenada.
Can we fish whilst sailing?
We have a fishing rod on Nemo and we sometimes catch fish as we sail between islands. Your catch may become that night’s dinner!
Fishing is not permitted in the British Virgin Islands due to local restrictions in marine regulations, in order to help safeguard the fish population. We promise to bring you places where you can snorkel and see the fish in their natural habitat.
Is internet access available?
Internet is not available except at certain Internet cafes along certain routes. Allow yourself to ‘unplug’ from the grid during your sailing trip, and enjoy a true holiday.
Is sailing child friendly?
Yes, sailing is child-friendly.
As we usually have a mixture of solo travellers, couples and small groups, we only accept bookings with children under 18 when one group or family books the whole yacht.
What language is spoken on board?
English is the primary language, but Sam can speak German and basic Spanish.
