We didn’t know what time it was, nor did we care. After several hour sailing, lunching, swimming and exploring on the Shalimar you will feel that RESET—I’m-so-cool-this-is-the-life buzz you’ve been waiting for. The team at Shalimar and Marauder will make you feel like you’ve visited that cool, interesting neighbor and he’s going to take you on a spin in his... More

We toured with Sebastian and his first mate for the day, Carlito, on a beautiful November day. It was just me and my fiancee on the tour. As most of the other reviews say, Sebastian was the consummate gentleman, recounting interesting stories of the boat, Vieques, and his life. Carlito was great, helping out along the way, making drinks, and... More

Nice day sailing with Sir Sebastian and his crew. A classic sailing ship with a touch of elegance including an open bar with delicious rum punch and beers. A very good lunch and the best part celebrate my birthday with them was amazing. This experience will be unforgettable to me and my boyfriend. Defenitely will return some day.

We booked an excursion on Classic Charters at the last minute. It turned out to be the highlight of our trip to Vieques. Sebastian was a gracious and accommodating host. Sailing aboard a boat with an impressive history like Shalamar enhanced the experience. Book a trip. You'll love it.

My girlfriend and I had an amazing day sailing with Sebastian and Nate (of the Marauder). Sebastian is part fleet commander of the Royal Navy, part celebrated historian and part James Bond. His ship is a chapter of world history that he sails with elegance and authority. From start to finish, he and Nate ensured each of our hands held... More

My husband found this company on the Internet and wanted to do a sunset cruise on this 75 year-old boat. Sebastian, the owner/captain is a warm and fascinating gentleman with many great stories, especially the one about this boat. He let me sail the boat myself tonight for a good twenty minutes! One of the most thrilling experiences of my... More

My husband and I immensely enjoyed our half day sail with Sebastian and Nate. We were so looking forward to it based on all the other reviews and it did not disappoint. As recommended, we took a Dramamine pill an hour before sailing and we felt wonderful all day. Sharing Sebastian's passion for sailing and his and Nate's hospitality which... More

We spent the day yesterday on Shalimar with Sebastian and Nate (of Marauder). The boat is beautiful and full of history. Sebastian is charming and very informative about the island and the boat's colorful past. Sebastian and Nate were great hosts. We went to a lovely secluded spot for swimming and snorkeling and they provided a delicious lunch and rum... More

We highly recommend a trip with Sebastian and Trip. Additionally, his... More
