People vacationing here on island always ask me – Do you like living here? Do you think you will stay? Well the answers are overwhelming yes and yes. First off, we are fortunate in that all of us living here on St. John truly live in paradise. Second, I have fantastic friends here on island. And third, I get invited to do some pretty fun stuff.
Take last Wednesday, for example. I was invited out on Residensea, Grande Bay’s 35-foot Scout. It’s a boat I’d never been on, so naturally I was pretty excited to check it out. For those of you unfamiliar with the boat, it’s a 2012 35-foot Scout 345 XSF with twin Yamaha F350 engines. It’s a larger boat, a super comfortable boat and a quick boat. Check out a few pics:
Because Residensea is larger and fast, it means you can go to further locations like Virgin Gorda. So that’s exactly what we did. We left the National Park Dock on St. John around 9 a.m., checked into Customs on Tortola and arrived in Virgin Gorda in about an hour and 10 minutes. Not too shabby. Our first stop was Saba Rock, a small resort and restaurant located on its own small island in North Sound. Check out a few pics:
I have to say that I had a fantastic time with Captain Mason and Residensea this week, and I highly recommend it. Oh and it’s not just for Grande Bay guests either. Anyone can spend a day out on Residensea. The cost is only $595 and it includes the captain, water, ice, towels and sunscreen.
