Cindyo, Thanks, we may do that...every year we say we will try a sunset cruise, but never got around to it....we always watch from the beach and think it would be nice,,,,but now that you.ve confirmed it I think I will try it...plus of course the open bar and munchies helped....
I will be on the island in September along with my family. (This will be my mother's first airplane flight ever and the last time my father was on an airplane was in the Korean War).
We are coming to Aruba to celebrate my father's 80th birthday and also to check on the progress of our home construction. We are looking for a sunset sail that would accommodate seniors. I need to find a sailboat that is easy to board with comfortable seating. My father can walk fine but tires fairly easy. There will be a group of eight family members.
Well I normally would suggest the depalm boat, however, in this case I an un-suggesting it. It is not elderly friendly, no much seating, and more of a "young" type of crowd. There is however, seating under the canopy cover at picnic type tables. Youcan stand un easily there, and sit....but IMOP....this isn't for you....cindyo
Yes, unfortunately I am unable to think of one either. We had the same considerations with my grandmother. Either way, regardless which vendor on Palm Beach that you use, you must be able to walk from the street towards the beach and across at least a small portion of sand. None of this takes into consideration getting from the transfer vessel or dock onto the boat itself.
I have to suggest Tranquilo, http://www.tranquiloaruba.com/
the boat is a 43ft monohull. I thing for what you are looking for it's perfect. Although I have never been on the boat or had the opportunity to meet Captain Tony, I am sure he could more easily accommodate your needs. Ask that he picks you up at the dock. It would be easy for him to sail the boat flat or with just bit of heal (tilt). It will be a more intimate experience then the Bigger cats.
The price may be a little more then the catamaran but is the moment and evening not the party that I expect is more important.
