Bored? When Jillian Galas isn’t taking the DB-9 for a spin, she’s doing other fun stuff.
Recently I had the opportunity to go on a sailing expedition with Out-Island Explorers in the Exumas, Bahamas. You sail a 21’ Sea Pearl (2-4 people per boat) to get to your destinations and the guide boat is always close by in case you run into trouble. You visit 5 or 6 cays on the trip and camp on 3-4 different beaches.
Although breakfast and lunch were standard camp fare the guides worked magic with dinner .
At the Marina there was a shallow swimming area where you could swim with nurse sharks which was a pretty surreal experience. The docks were filled with sailing and motoring yachts of all sizes and the owners were more than happy to talk details. It was also very close to the Land & Sea Park where you can snorkel with so many fish it’s like jumping into an aquarium!! A couple of things; this was an active trip and I would caution you against going if you:
- can’t swim,
- don’t like to camp, or
- won’t pee in the wilderness.
I would also suggest that you do have some sailing experience, although if you don’t, Out-Island Explorers will make sure that you are put in a boat with someone who does.
All you had to provide were clothing, alcohol if you wanted it.
Whether you sail, kayak or a combination of both, I am sure you will have just as much fun as I did!
Thanks Jillian for something a little adventurous.
See you on down the road,
