TripAdvisor Traveler Rating

Choose from one of the many sailing trips on the Tranquilo, as tranquility is just what you experience with us.

Tranquilo Sailing was founded by Capt. Mike Hagedoorn, whose passion for sailing was legendary. So he started taking guests out sailing on the Tranquilo. 20 years later, Capt. Anthony, his son, took the helm.

The name of our 43-foot sailing yacht echoes the tranquility we offer you during our scenic cruises. Our sailing trip to Spanish Lagoon is off the beaten path and we offer the unique experience of drift snorkelling. On our cruises we pass secluded areas, home to pelican nests, flamingos and more.

Our yacht features a large sun deck to lounge on and a comfortable cockpit with a hard top cover for that all-important shade.

On our snorkelling trip to the south side we offer drift snorkelling, where you simply float along with the current above the coral reef teeming with tropical fish. Other choices are a lunch cruise, featuring our home-made pea soup, a dinner sail, or any private sailing trip.

Seating is limited, so book early and be ready for a sailing experience you will never forget!

There is just about anything you can do on a private sailing charter. Bring the kids for a snorkelling adventure; assist with sailing the boat or take a turn at the helm, deep sea fishing, tanning or enjoying the sunset with loved ones or with small wedding parties. You can even take basic or advanced sailing instruction with tips on boat handling. Private trips include standard open bar and hors d’oeuvres. A light lunch is served on trips of four hours or more.

Food and beverage upgrades are available upon request – the possibilities are endless.

All trips depart from the Renaissance Marina in Oranjestad. We are opposite the Crystal Casino (view map). Look for the red sailing boat at the end of the dock. Please be there five minutes before each trip for check in. Souvenir T-shirts and hats are available on board. Gift certificates are available upon request.
