Panache Sailing reviews
This was definitely a highlight of our vacation. The crew were very helpful, thoughtful, and considerate. My husband and I had our two kids with us, ages 16 & 11. They made my daughter, age 11, feel..... more »
We went on a boad trip today and got left stranded by the boat on a deserted beach with all of our stuff in the boat. We followed the timing instructions received and the boat failed to go by what... more »
Awesome time tonight. The crew was great. Excellent food and drink service. Snorkeling was fun too. Loved the music and dancing.
Did not provide the experience we were looking for. Our transportation from the JW, which was provided Panache, was late picking us up and did not allow sufficient time to pick up another 2passengers along the way and arrive at the harbor on time. We were the last to arrive and many people were already on the boat. We motored out of the bay, the music went on and when the sails went up I expected them to cut the music but that isn't what happened. All we wanted to enjoy was the sound of the wind and the water against the hulls but the loud music continued. We got loud music for the duration of the trip, even through the sunset. We were looking for a peaceful, quiet, romantic sunset sail experience but that is not what we got. We got more of a party boat experience. There was no narration about the different islands we were seeing nor the history of the area etc. There was little to see at the snorkeling spot, visibility was poor and the bottom was bare and rocky. I have over 500 dives under my belt, all around the world, so I recognize and appreciate good snorkeling. This was not good snorkeling. The boat was also overcrowded. I didn't count the exact number of passengers but I'd estimate it was about 6-8 too many given the size of the boat. Maybe this is their SOP but if I had known I'd have booked our sailing elsewhere.
