    I would agree of not doing anything, because for the 1st time in Sep, 09, I will actually be on vacation, instead of work.
    Just get together with friends I have made thru the years of going there, enjoy the beautiful beach, restaurant, some dancing, but mostly relaxing.

    EVERYONE in our group, including the children, agreed not only was it worth a day off of the beach, it was a TERRIFIC excursion. I actually asked for a show of hands.

    Hey Lisa ~

    You did the Tranquillo tour? I think we may have to that when we go next year.

    We have done Jolly Pirate - but we'd like to see something else.

    Linda, they are both fun, but very different.

    Tranquilo is a longer day, with different snorkeling and a nice leisurely sail back to Palm Beach. I have a review of our first time sailing on Tranquilo here. There are also photos here and I am working on editing the video we shot. Will let you know when it is posted.

    Should add the kids are aged 13, 12 & 9. A boy age 11 was also aboard and though I did not poll him, in conversation I know he and his family had a great time as well!

    did u have any difficulty climbing from the water back into the boat.
    yrs ago i sailed with octopus and they hauled my sorry bum into the boat....quite demoralizing to say the least.

    kind of like the guy at rancho laponderosa, giving me a boost up to the saddle.........i think he used his shoulder under my bum. again demoralizing.

    No! The procedure for getting back into the dinghy is THOROUGHLY explained. If you do not follow the Captain's specific directions, he will leave you in the ocean until you comply. The idea is to kick with your fins in order to get you high enough out of the water to allow the Captain to pluck you up in order for you to be able to swing one leg over the side.

    Dh was the first to get back on and kicked his fins so hard that the Captain could haul him up, he nearly went flying clear over the other side of the dinghy.

    I, oth, ended up on the side as I was supposed to, but went I went to pull my second leg over as instructed I ended up on the floor of the dinghy.

    BUT I was happy to be back aboard AND it was only the Capt., dh and dd already on board, so no audience.

    I especially did not feel bad when I saw the men coming back aboard as gracefully as I. <<NOT>>

    I felt terrific after watching a svelt young 20 something on her honeymoon land back in the dinghy EXACTLY the same way I did!
