In April of 2009, my family and I took a great vacation aboard a charter catamaran from Voyage Charters. We sailed for 8 days on the Moon Shadow, a totally luxurious 58 ft Voyage catamaran. This honestly was the best vacation our family has ever taken, combining natural beauty, relaxation, fun and quality family time (no internet or SMS most of the time). I’ve been meaning for a long time to chronicle briefly our itinerary, which I will do in the next series of posts.
We actually flew into St Thomas on April 3, and spent the night at the Marriott on St Thomas. On April 4, we took the ferry over to Tortola and then met up with our crew, Keith (Captain, Bartender and fellow kiteboarder) and Meghan (Mate and Chef). We loaded our gear and sailed over to Norman Island. This is the island where the Pirates of the Caribbean movies were filmed. There is excellent snorkeling in “The Caves”, and there are literally some caves where we got so deep that you could not see sunlight anymore. After a nice late afternoon snorkel, we motored over to the Bight where we anchored for the night.
