Who you see on Youtube is who we are, we like to have fun and we love an adventure!
Now you too can come and be part of it all.
Before casting off the lines, in our previous lives we were owner/operators of restaurants and a boutique bed and breakfast (www.creeksidebnb.com) so you are in good hands aboard SA3.
This season we will be cruising the Western Caribbean, Guatemala and it's Rio Dulce,
Belize with it's second longest barrier reef in the world and the beautiful Exumas island chain of the Bahamas. Get in touch with us if you are at all interested, limited availability.
In Belize you can expect gorgeous turquoise waters, small white sand islands, bio-diverse mangrove islands, incredible reefs exploding with fish and sailing waters that are protected by the barrier reef.
Exploring in Guatemala and the exotic Rio Dulce (the sweet river) with it's howler monkeys, jungle clad mountains, canyon walls that go straight up from where you sit, and local people selling fruit in dug out canoes. Join us for a week sailing from Belize that will include a multi day journey up this exotic and mysterious feeling river...
The Exumas island chain in the Bahamas is justly referred to as the "Diamond Necklace of the Bahamas". Crystal clear blue waters and white sand beaches abound. The sailing here is amazing because of the protection provided by the Exuma island chain and the constant blow of the Trade Winds. It's a wonderful beam reach sail most of the day as we sail protected behind the chain.
The large company charter boats charge a lot (most upwards of $10,000 per week and not including food or beverage, a Captain or Chef) and they have heavy restrictions on where they can go, but since we are cruising on, and own Saltair 3, there are so many special anchorages and out of the way places that we're able to sail to and enjoy all to ourselves.
You get to learn, you get to enjoy and you get to see so much more on SA3 for a fraction of the price of what the big charter companies charge.
While sailing with us you may also get to spear fish for lobster, deep sea fish for tuna and mahi mahi, snorkel and dive beautiful coral reefs or sunken wrecks, visit beautiful and remote white sand beaches, use our ocean "sailing" kayak to spend an afternoon exploring or try your hand at wake boarding, or maybe just lounge around with a sunset cocktail and snacks,
In our freshly renovated catamaran we can accommodate up to 4 people comfortably. The Starboard side (all yours) includes 2 private cabins (one Queen and one oversized Double) and a large bathroom. All your meals will be included as well as snacks and sundowner Rum cocktails at happy hour or at anchor down.
This isn’t a booze up party boat, rather a chance to come experience and see what we enjoy on a daily basis. But hey, don’t worry, we plan on having lots of fun!
Maybe you want to come as a couple, or a couple with your 2 kids, or 2 couples, whatever you choose we know you will have a great time! Kids will have a blast with Cole as their personal onboard friend. They will enjoy all the fun activities and experiences that Cole gets to enjoy, from fishing to kayaking or kayak sailing, to swimming and snorkeling, paddle boarding, wake boarding... your kids will love it, you will love it!
If you are on the fence wondering if living on a boat is for you, then come try it out first hand with us aboard Saltair 3. We've been cruising the Caribbean for over 5 years now and we've sailed over 17,000 miles in our lives. Come learn from all that we have learnt and experienced living a life on the sea... and have a great time doing it.
The experience of a lifetime is waiting aboard Saltair 3...
