Trimaran PROMENADE News: Sail Dive Charters in BVI

Here's some news from recent happenings aboard the charter yacht Promenade, a 65-foot trimaran, owned and operated by Kerry and Bazza out of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. An excellent choice for a sailing and diving vacation.

A few days ago, Kerry sent us this: "Muskmelon was nice and flat and Bazza and I went for a dusk dive out in the mud to see what we saw, I took my camera along, and LOOK what I found!!!! This is the first time that i have seem one of these!!!! We probably took about a hundred pictures of this batfish. I did not want to come up! This is quite a rare find."
Look at the lips on this guy! What an expression!

Kerry recently received her underwater housing for her new Nikon digital camera. Looking forward to some more excellent photos from Promenade.

Here's another interesting bit about Kerry and her turtle friend: "Yep, he never has been too scared of me, but the last couple days he has really let me come close to him. Yesterday he sat there for ten minutes while I stroked underneath his shell!! The neat part was that he went up for air and then came back down and laid beside me again, so I really knew I had made a friend!! I don't think I have ever had such a pleasing experience in the water."

Promenade a large 65-foot trimaran, with a fun crew and is a wonderful boat for families and groups. Besides being the ideal dive boat, they also have lots of water toys for other activities, plus the boat is so spacious that it is not difficult to find a quiet spot if you so wish. Promenade is air conditioned and has 5 guests cabins; three cabins have Queen berths, while the other two can be configured either as Kings or as two Twins. Promenade has a 14-foot dinghy with 50HP motor, waterskis, kneeboard, tube, several kayaks, 5-person banana, snorkeling gear, fishing equipment, projection TV/VCR/DVD in the salon, a portable DVD player, Game Boy, Play Station 2, iPod friendly, dedicated guest computer for email access, compressor to fill scuba tanks, and much more. Promenade has a Dive Instructor aboard so anyone can dive... give it a try!

Here are some more photos from a recent charter aboard Promenade.

This is a photo of the foredeck to try to show how much room there is aboard this 65-foot trimaran. She has a 35-foot beam (width).

Promenade is one of the few charter yachts which has a commercial fishing license for the British Virgin Islands. They usually do catch and release, but I believe this fish might have been dinner.

Rays are just soooooooo cool. They sure make a big splash when they jump out of the water.
