There’s no doubt that the Sail Cayman crew; Neil Galway, Orneil Galbraith and Nick Antonio make every effort to show our clients and passengers an excellent time on Lazy Daz, NautiGal, Splendour in the Wind and The RIB. Just take a look at our TripAdvisor or Facebook page and you will see happy comments from satisfied clients having a great time. Sail Cayman crew always has a great time when out on the water, as it’s our favourite place to be, and when we have a good time, our clients have a great time and this is just some of the reasons why Sail Cayman is one of the 156 Cayman Islands recipients of the 2014 TripAdvisor Awards of Excellence.
Let’s take a look at why Sail Cayman received this award and why we get the rave reviews that we do:
- Sail Cayman has 4 boats to choose from…variety is the spice of life…our passengers can choose from our 47 ft Beneteau Yacht, Splendour in the Wind which offers ample space and a shaded cockpit for up to 12 passengers and has the added benefit of 2 marine toilets and an A/C cabin with a full galley. NautiGal, our 44ft yacht can accommodate up to 12 passengers too. Lazy Daz our super fast 34ft custom built boat offers plenty of shade and gets you to where you need to be fast. The RIB is a fun and bright yellow ATV of the seas, and like Lazy Daz, can pick you up from any location in the North Sound.
- It’s YOUR day! Sail Cayman is flexible, we build our charters around what you desire, it’s YOUR holiday, tell us your wish, where you want to go, what YOU would like to do.
- Knowledge and Experience. Two major factors that adds to the enjoyment of your day and Sail Cayman has both, tons of it! Orneil grew up in Cayman, Nick has lived here for over 10 years and Neil has lived in Cayman for over 20 years. We know the waters, the stingrays, eels, nurse sharks and destinations like the back of our hands
- Safety First! Which is always important, even if you’re having too much fun to care, we look after you every minute of the excursion or charter.
And if after all of the above, you’re still not sure, here are some TripAdvisor posts about Sail Cayman:
“SAIL CAYMAN Captain Neil Provided A 5 Star Experience”
We were a group of ten women – all related either by blood or marriage – and one best friend – connected by a young woman who died in January after a three year battle with cancer. We traveled to Grand Cayman to rest, relax and reminisce about her life. A private sailing experience seemed like a perfect way for all of us to do something out of the ordinary. Captain Neil provided the absolute best day of our trip. We set sail for the day on Saturday, March 29th. We were aboard “Splendour In the Wind.” The boat is absolutely stunning!!!! The day started out dark and gray, but soon the skies cleared, and the weather was perfect all day long. We went to see stingrays – swam with them, and some of the girls were able to feed them. After that, he took us to another location to snorkel. We had one person who had never snorkeled before, and she was quite nervous. Captain Neil assisted her while she snorkeled. He is so attentive and charming……all of the women had a crush on the captain! He remained so professional, even while we were giggling and giving him a bit of a hard time. After the snorkeling, we went to Kaibo for a great lunch. I highly recommend Sail Cayman. There is a reason he has a FIVE STAR RATING on Trip Advisor. It is an incredible experience. Thank you, Captain Neil!”
We had a fabulous trip with Neil for our sunset sail. What an experience it was just the two of us with the Neil celebrating our wedding anniversary. It was a recommendation from a very dear friend and we would do it all over again. Thank you Neil for a great time!”
“ABSOLUTE HIGHLIGHT OF MY WHOLE VACATION”
I went with a group of eleven aboard the Nautigal with Orneil as our captain. I could not have asked for a more enjoyable afternoon! The boat was fantastic, the view was gorgeous, and the water was some of the bluest I’ve ever seen.
Orneil took us out to a remote spot where we were surrounded by stingrays. After a quick briefing on the safety precautions (dispelled all of our fears on the “bloodthirsty” creatures the news would have us believe they are), we were in the water swimming alongside the beautiful rays, and we were able to reach out an pet them as they nuzzled up to us, and I was even able to feed one a snack (a big squid).
Next, we went off to a coral reef where we spotted a ton of different types of fish, and even a caribbean lobster! The sights were breathtaking!
Back aboard the boat, Orneil answered all of our questions about the island, questions related to the ocean, but also questions about life on the island in general. All in all, the perfect guide!
If you are traveling to Grand Cayman, or if you are looking for a day excursion while at port on a cruise, I would absolutely recommend Sail Cayman!
“NEIL IS THE BEST”
Scheduled a day on the water with Neil on “Splendor of the Sea” in March with some close friends and it was fabulous. First of all, the boat is clean, spotless and comfortable for a day of activities. Neil is great at customizing the trip to his audience; he listens, gives you options and ultimately makes it your call. We sailed a bit, found two excellent snorkelling spots and spent some up front and personal time with the rays by ourselves, far away from the crowds at Stingray City. Since Neil has been on the island since the 80’s, he’s also a wealth of knowledge and we enjoyed hearing about some of the history. He’s the perfect host, engaging if you have questions or just being the quiet captain if you want to relax, have a beer and enjoy the sights and sounds on the water. We’ve been fortunate to have experienced a few wonderful sailing excursions in the Caribbean over the years, and Sail Cayman has been the best.
