WANDERBIRD returns to Cuelbra this winter

Wanderbird will be returning to the Caribbean this winter (2010/11 winter season), based in Cuelbra in the lesser-known Spanish Virgin Islands...

The Wanderbird is based in Culebra this winter for week-long cruises departing from and returning to this magical island.

It is incredibly beautiful around the Spanish Caribbean Islands. Snorkeling, climbing for fresh coconuts, pale blue warm salty water, amazing cute little seaside towns, roaming wild horses originally brought by the Spaniards on Vieques, iguanas and wild chickens on Culebra and post card beaches... life is good. Come join us!

Located about nineteen miles east of Puerto Rico and eight miles north of Vieques, Culebra is the smallest of the inhabited Spanish Virgin Islands. She is seven miles long and 3 miles wide. Her many beaches are some of the most beautiful in the world.

Culebra is an arid island, having no rivers or streams. She gets her water from Puerto Rico via Vieques. Because of the lack of run-off from streams and rivers, Culebra boasts crystal clear waters with sixty feet of visibility on a bad day.

Culebra is an island municipality under the domain of Puerto Rico, which has been under the protection of the United States, since its annexation from Spain in 1898. In 1909 the Culebra National Wildlife Refuge was established. The refuge takes in over one thousand four hundred acres of land and is well known both as a nesting area for numerous seabirds, as well as the endangered leatherback turtle and Culebra giant anole.

Culebra has about three thousand residents. The quiet, unspoiled island has little to offer in nightlife, except for a quiet, safe walk in the moonlight or the occasional sound of guitar music from one of her few night spots. The island has little crime and very little to do, but relax at the beach or your favorite watering hole. The snorkeling and scuba diving around Culebra are outstanding. Hard and soft corals abound in the shallows and magnificent reefs encircle the island. Tropical fish and other sea life abound. The depths rarely exceed one hundred feet.

Come with Wanderbird on a sea adventure to explore the Caribbean island of Cuelbra (winter 2010/11) with your hosts Captains Rick and Karen. Share their dream of life on the sea on their renovated 90-foot Dutch fishing vessel, the WANDERBIRD.
