My fiancé surprised me with this evening cruise. It was absolutely spectacular! Everything from the captain Sebastian and the first mate Chase, down to the champagne and appetizers, it was all out of a fairytale. We can't wait to go back to Vieques, PR and give those guys a visit!

Capt. Sebastian and crew were superb. Shalamar the perfect boat (with a soul!) to host our sunny day-sail south of Vieques, but the experience was even better than anticipated. Our entire group of 6 joined the crew for a 4+ hour sail our of Esperanza harbor. Excellent rum punches (and whatever else) were served liberally, conversation and company was relaxing... More

This was an unusual splurge for us, but well worth it. We have not spent time on a sailboat before. The most accurate thing I can say is it helps me breath again. The elemental nature of the wind and the sea washes away the stress of daily life. That's why you should do it! You should do it on... More

Sabastian and Chase couldn't have been more welcoming on this beautiful classic boat. They took out three first time sailors and gave each of us a shot at the wheel and ropes. Thanks guys! I so hope to go out with you again. This was a fantastic adventure that you will not want to miss while you are visiting Vieques.

Sailing with Vieques Classic Charter was an unforgettable experience. The Shalamar is a beautifully restored wooden boat full of charm and soul. She is paired perfectly with a gracious Captain Sebastian whose passion for sailing and personal integrity is evident immediately. The delicious food, the excellent conversations and the beauty of this pristine Caribbean Island made the day a memory... More

I could not speak more highly about the experience we had with Captain Watt and First Mate Chase on our recent Sunset Cruise in Vieques. My boyfriend and I chose to do this outing for our five year anniversary and we couldn't have been happier! The boat is absolutely beautiful with an amazing history - don't pass up the chance...

This was an impromptu day trip that we scheduled and wish we had done it earlier in our vacation so we could do it again during our time on the island. It was fabulous. Wonderful and interesting captain, beautiful boat and spectacular drinks by your personal bartender, Paul (aka first mate). The food was fresh, healthy and delicious. The time... More

My wife and I are good about offering reviews of charters that we enjoy while on vacation. We've been on more than a few over the years. Usually the review words come easily, we hit "submit", and we're done. Not so this time. Our day spent aboard Shalimar very nearly defies every superlative that we can conjure. Capt. Sebastian and...

First off, the boat is incredible. Second, Sebastian, the captain, is one of the most interesting people in the world. Get him to tell you some stories. They serve lunch, which is home made and delicious, using local ingredients. I'm prone to seasickness, and the bottomless rum punches they served didn't help that situation, but as soon as I started... More

Highly recommend a sailing trip aboard the Shalamar with Sebastian. We were able to book our trip with just a phone call, and went same day based on Sebastian's recommendation regarding the great sailing conditions of the day. The Shalamar is a beautiful sailboat rich with history and Capt. Sebastian is welcoming, charming and a seasoned sailor. We had a... More
