Highlights
  • Sail on a catamaran through the beautiful turquoise waters of the canarreos archipelago
  • Stop to snorkel or share a drink with friendly locals
  • Enjoy the slow pace of life in the islands

We’ve always found it odd that they call them “all-inclusive resorts,” yet exclude the best parts. Hop over the wall and get to know Cuba like you never have before on this unique eight-day journey through the islands of the Canarreos Archipelago aboard an exclusive catamaran. Snorkel the crystal-clear waters in search of colourful fish, relax on the beach, and dine on some of the best seafood you’ll ever have. Experience all-inclusive, G Adventures-style; we don’t leave anything out.

The captain and the cook were amazing, still it would have been great to learn more about how the boat and sailing works. Best experience still was that I was allowed to stear the catamaran!

The staff helped to make the trip Basco (Captain) very friendly with great local knowledge Carlitos (chef/First Mate) - again very friendly, gracious and best of all a great chef. Fortunately I like seafood which was never in short supply for meals. I can eat chicken at home! Zsofia (CEO) - very friendly, outgoing with great enthusiasm. Snorkeling and swimming were my highlights, having the opportunity to swim with sharks (nurse and reef), turtles, fish, spiny lobsters and even eels.

This week I've been to paradise, away from the dark, cold and ice. When the sun gets up here for a new days birth, I am the happiest person on earth. The recipe of a perfect day, a catamaran and sail away. Get a tan, go swim in the sea, get drunk, go dance, you are totally free. Jokes and laughter, a constant smile on my lips, Gadventures you do great trips. We eat as royals, good drinks on the side, you can't wish for more, it's great to be alive. Lobsters, deserts and perfect rice, there is no doubt this is paradise. So raise your glasses for the greatest crew, and the rest on board are pretty awesome too!

Itinerary

Day 1 Havana/Cienfuegos (1D)

Have a safety briefing and early dinner on board, then spend the evening getting acquainted with the crew and yacht, sailing out of Cienfuegos. Additional Notes: It is important to note that Cuba tends to be quite different to other areas of the world you may have travelled in. Buildings and infrastructure are generally old and may not have been maintained to the highest standard. Elevators, internet and A/C often break down, things happen very slowly and water pressure and hot water can be minimal. Cuba is an amazing place to visit but to fully enjoy and relax, western expectations should be left at home and your sense of adventure should be your guide.

Today we begin to explore some of the the Caribbeans most beautiful islands. Composed of approximately 350 islets, the islands are known to be more rustic and quiet than many of the other popular Cuban travel destinations. Relax and enjoy the warm Caribbean air, or take the opportunity to fish. The cook will happily prepare any fish that are caught. Transport: 25m (82 ft) Cuba Sailing Catamaran

Solo Notes

We believe single travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and single travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.
Accomodations
Twin/double bed cabins with shared bathrooms (7 nts).
This catamaran is equipped with 8 passenger cabins, some with 2 beds (upper and lower) and some with double beds. All cabins have attached bathrooms with showers (shared between two cabins) and the vessel has an onboard kitchenette, interior and exterior common areas, and plenty of outside deck space. Power onboard is 220V on European 2 pin sockets. Please note that this is not suitable for sleeping aid machines, as the power source may not always be operating. Bringing a battery pack is recommended. If you are traveling alone, you will be paired up in a cabin with another traveler of the same gender. Please expect the cabin to be very small. The bunk length is 1.8 meters (6ft) with limited head height and limited storage for luggage. Most of our sailors tend to spend very, very little time in their cabins, just using them to sleep and store clothes.

Important Notes

1. Please note that space is very, very limited on the boat and especially in your cabin. It is important that you only take on board soft sided luggage such as a mid sized backpack or soft duffel bag, keeping your bag's weight to less than 15kgs. Suitcases are not appropriate for our Sailing Cuba Adventure as they are not pliable enough to fit into the niches available for luggage. If you are on a longer trip, it may be possible to store excess luggage for one week at the yacht marina. 2. Fresh water is very limited on board, and as such we ask for your understanding that showers are limited to one quick shower per person a day. One towel per week is provided for showering purposes, and beach towels are also provided. Drinking water is provided free of charge on board the yacht. 3. It's important to note that the beds in the cabins are not the usual length of a standard bed. The length is approximately 1.8 meters ( 6 feet) 4. Please let us know of any food allergies & requirements when booking, as there is very limited access to additional food once on the water. 5. The CUC12 or EUR12 per day Cuba Sailing Tax is included in the trip price.

Meals

Eating is a big part of traveling. Traveling with G Adventures you experience the vast array of wonderful food that is available out in the world. Food is a major part of this sailing adventure. You will enjoy many home cooked meals lovingly prepared by our on board cook. Portions are generous and will include sea food, typical Cuban dishes and even the occasional breakfast fry up. Drinking water is provided and beer, wine and soft drink is available to purchase at cost price aboard. Non included meals are taken ashore at local restaurants. There's nothing left to do but kick back and relax!

Dossier Disclaimer

The information in this trip details document has been compiled with care and is provided in good faith. However it is subject to change, and does not form part of the contract between the client and the operator. The itinerary featured is correct at time of printing. It may differ slightly to the one in the brochure. Occasionally our itineraries change as we make improvements that stem from past travellers, comments and our own research. Sometimes it can be a small change like adding an extra meal along the itinerary. Sometimes the change may result in us altering the tour for the coming year. Ultimately, our goal is to provide you with the most rewarding experience. Please note that our brochure is usually released in November each year. If you have booked from the previous brochure you may find there have been some changes to the itinerary. VERY IMPORTANT: Please ensure that you print a final copy of your Trip Details to review a couple of days prior to travel, in case there have been changes that affect your plans.

Physical Requirements Our small group adventures bring together people of all ages. It is very important you are aware that, as a minimum, an average level of fitness and mobility' is required to undertake our easiest programs. Travellers must be able to walk without the aid of another person, climb 3-4 flights of stairs, step on and off small boats, and carry their own luggage at a minimum. Travellers with a pre-existing medical condition are required to complete a short medical questionnaire, which must be signed by their physician. This is to ensure that travellers have the necessary fitness and mobility to comfortably complete their chosen trip. While our CEOs work hard to ensure that all our travellers are catered for equally, it is not their responsibility to help individuals who cannot complete the day's activities unaided. Please refer to the physical ratings in this Trip Details document for more information. The medical questionnaire can be found online at: www.gadventures.com/medical-form.
Rules & Other Requirements Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our CEOs have the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
