5th Luxury Catamaran added to fleet to enhance Your Cayman Family Dive Vacation; Swimmin’, Chillin’ & Grillin’ Snorkel Adventure Announced
Red Sail Sports Grand Cayman announces the addition of the Spirit of the Islands, a luxury 65-foot Catamaran equipped with an onboard grill and water slide that will add to its family fun tours on the water. As the on-site dive and watersports operator at most of Grand Cayman’s top hotels, Red Sail Sports aims to be family friendly. All company dive packages include a free sunset sail, so the luxury Catamaran experience is already a part of all customer vacations. The new Swimmin’, Chillin’ & Grillin’ tour on the Spirit of the Islands is the perfect way for the whole family to enjoy Cayman’s crystal clear water and marine environment.
“Many of our guests spend the morning on the dive boat and they then want spend time with family members that don’t dive, and this is a brand new and exciting way to get them out on the water together to have fun,” said Dive Operations Manager Rod McDowall. “We expect it to be a big hit with guests who can now enjoy a fresh grilled lunch after working up a good appetite snorkeling, swimming and using the slide.”
The Spirit of the Islands was built in St. Croix by Gold Coast Yachts, the same outfit that built the other four vessels for Red Sail Sports. It was designed with the same attention to detail − spacious, comfortable and stable – but the grill and water slide were added. A crew of five, including Red Sail Sports Captain Dan Bond, sailed the catamaran on a five-day journey from St. Croix to Grand Cayman, cruising by Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Jamaica. While the catamaran was going through the licensing and inspection process in Grand Cayman, Red Sail Sports employees held a contest to name the new tour. There were over 30 entries from staff but Michael Lawday of the Sales Department came up with the winning entry and the new tour was named “Swimmin’, Chillin’ & Grillin”.
The Swimmin’, Chillin’ & Grillin adventure offers a new Catamaran experience for the whole family. Guests take in the sights of one of the world’s most beautiful beaches while sailing to snorkel sites on shallow reefs. While customers are snorkeling, swimming or sliding down the slide, the Chef is grillin’ a delicious late lunch. Grilled items include spare ribs, local fish tacos or beef burgers, accompanied by the usual sides, green salad, potato salad or pasta salad. A cookie or brownie tops off the meal.
