What a lovely evening we had on our Sunset Dinner Cruise with New Horizons arranged by our Concierge, Angela St. Hilaire. It started out with a greeting from our captain, Steve, who informed us about what we were to expect once we set sail and also asked that we sign the liability waiver and fitness forms. He instructed us that we would be boarding a “bare-foot” boat and had us remove our shoes and place them in the provided basket before stepping on board the vessel.
Once aboard, Steve introduced the other two members of the crew, Bill and John, and provided us with safety instructions and the location of the life vests and fire extinguishers. The crew made sure everyone was settled with their champagne or choice of beverage and we set sail.
Angela, our concierge and I went to Caneel Bay Hotel on St. John for our 2pm Kayak/Hike/Snorkel tour by the VI EcoTours. Our guide met us promptly and got us set up right away with Kayaks, snorkel gear, water, and a few mini candy bars for energy after snorkeling.
We loaded our 2-man kayaks and paddled around to the other side of Caneel Bay. Because the trail was closed the Sunday we did our tour, we took a lovely stroll around the grounds of the hotel. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the history and benefits or dangers of the plants, trees, and animals that were on the property.
What an amazingly fun-filled day our concierge, Angela (right), and I had! The day started off at 9am with paddle boarding or Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP-ing) at Bluewater SUP Safaris in Hull Bay. We met with Collin and Adrianne who took the time to educate us on the history of this rapidly growing sport and provided us with on-the-water safety tips on keeping our balance, falling off the board, and getting back on the board.
