While at Beaches Resorts in Jamaica and the Turks & Caicos I got to enjoy Catamaran rides. Catamarans are medium sized boats that have netting towards the front that you can sit on and look at the ocean beneath you. A huge thank you to Island Routes for these amazing opportunities!
I thought I’d share some of my favorite pictures from both excursions. This would definitely be on my “must do” list if I was traveling to the Caribbean again!
While in Jamaica, Jacob and I went on a catamaran that stopped near a cave and we got to swim into the dark cave and out the other side! We also watched people jump from a cliff into the water below.
Our Turks & Caicos catamaran adventure took Sinisa and I to a private island and also stopped in the middle of the ocean for us to go snorkeling.
Catamarans are a unique way to explore the Caribbean. Ours had some snacks and drinks as well as a DJ playing music. Here are my tips for enjoying the ride:
1) Wear lots of sunscreen!
2) Be careful walking on the net and do not run on it. I sprained my ankle trying to get Jacob away from the edge of the boat because my foot got caught in the net.
3) Try new things! Snorkeling, swimming in a cave, jumping into the ocean from the boat? How often do you get a chance to do something fun like that?!
4) Bring a coverup for your bathing suit. Once you’ve been in the water you will want to wear something over your suit while you cruise back to the island. That wind gets chilly when you are wet.
5) Bring a camera to get some pictures. Waterproof cameras are the best.
