Sail Date: Aug 2023

This is my second adventure sailing with IWJ on Vela. It never disappoints! We sailed from St Lucia, and around Martinique. There was plenty to see and do, hiking, beach adventures, local shopping and snorkeling. If you are looking for a Caribbean vacation that requires nothing more than a swimsuit, shorts, tank tops and occasionally a pair of flip flops, book now! Vela's Captain and crew were amazing, knowledgeable, attentive and took care of everything! They make you feel like your the only one they have to think about. The chef is a master of Caribbean cuisine, as well as others. There is a afternoon happy hour with delicious snacks and plenty of sips (or non-sips) Dining out on the deck watching breathtaking sunsets till the night sky fills with stars is just one of the many highlights of sailing on Vela. I recommend IWJ!! And I am looking forward to sailing on their new sailing yacht, Lyra, around the Greek Islands!
