The Voyage: Find yourself and a group of like-minded people sailing in the Spanish Virgin Islands training body and mind on the principles of parkour. For this one of a kind Movement Creative itinerary, we will dive deep into the local culture of this beautiful place and really explore the landscape for fun and unique training experiences.
Although the accommodations differ from a hotel or a cruise ship you will quickly see the advantages of traveling on a sailing vessel as we visit hard to reach port towns and row ashore on abandoned beaches. Living space inside a sailboat is compact but comfortable. Cabins have small closets and cubbies for your belongings. Each boat has multiple heads (bathrooms) and showers. They are small, but you will become accustomed to them in no time. Boats have a full galley (kitchen) and dining table below, but most meals will be set on a table in the cockpit on deck.
Included in the total trip cost:
• Private captain and chefs for each boat
• Travel support to help customize and guide your group's journey
• Delicious family style meals with seven breakfasts, six lunches, three dinners and snacks aboard, all prepared by your private chefs
• Marina fees, dockage, and moorings for overnight anchorages
• Boat incidentals including fuel, water, local taxes, etc.
• And of course unabashed adventure and epic memories!
