Catamaran Sail & Island Anchoring

About the Sail:

Our most popular private excursion, this allows enough time to sail past through harbour to Wreck Cove, a hidden gem alongside McNabs Island, overlooking Lawlor's and Devil's Islands. With three hours, our crew will drop anchor so you can swim off the stern, mingle on the bow, or even take our tender boat into the island to explore! We have a paddle board onboard, as well as a BBQ available if you'd like to bring along a meal!
