Hello- just joined CC, and looking through boards came across this "theme". I am a Chesney fan, so am looking for any info regarding Kenny. I was told on another board that this was the place to look, but I can't find much info. I am especially interested in a tour someone told me about when the boat is in St Thomas. Does anyone know of a tour with a company called Interlinesail that takes you swimming and snorkeling on St John at Cinnamon Bay? If you do, can you send me the website or any info you have?
You may want to go to the "Ports" St Thomas/St John section of this board and ask there as well.
Found many favorable reports including this one:
Daysail - Interlinesail out of St. Thomas
Everyone has been so helpful to us on these boards, I just wanted to let everyone know what a wonderful time we had on Interlinesail's sailboat "Slo Dancin" recently on our cruise to St. Thomas on 5/17 (off the Carnival Glory).
My DH and I had never been on a sailboat, so this was a new experience for us and it was one of the greatest times we've ever had! We took a open air taxi to Red Hook where we were met promptly by Captain Omar, who took us out to the sailboat on his dinghy, where we are also welcomed aboard by Jan, (his wife & first mate) and served rum punches (which flowed as much as we wanted the entire trip). They made us feel right at home and were so friendly. We sailed to St. John, and along the way Jan pointed out to us the island that Johnny Depp (sp?) had just bought and also told us some of the history and various stories of the area.
Our first stop was Honeymoon beach at Caneel Bay. Captain Omar took us to the beach where we snorkled, sunbathed and walked along the most beautiful beach we'd ever seen (with hardly a soul in sight)!! He left us a horn if we wanted to come back before the 90 minutes were up (Jan was preparing lunch on the boat) - we didn't go back early! After Capt. Omar picked us up we returned to the most delicious gourmet lunch you could ask for, served under the boat's awning still viewing that gorgeous beach.
On the way to our second stop we saw a large swimming iguana and some of the island's wild donkey's. We saw a group of 5 donkey's walking among the guests at the Caneel Bay Resort, foraging for food. We also saw many beautiful fish and turtles. Unfortunately, the rain prevented us from snorkling at the second stop, but hey, what can you do about the weather? Jan was very hospitable, and gave us raincoats (and more rum punches ).
All in all, this trip was something we will remember for the rest of our lives. Jan & Omar are so very friendly, and even helped us get a cab back to the ship and told us to ask the driver to go another way back that was more scenic than the first way.
We are now planning a cruise with a stop in St. Thomas for next year, and are already talking about booking their sailboat for a day! If anyone has questions, please let me know & I'll try to answer. Their website is www.interlinesail.com
