Great time spearfishing, sailing a Windjammer and enjoying the Bahamas Tall Ship style with Tony!

Merci Beaucoup! 

  We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the LC. Except for the time when we slept through the great sailing, when Eric threw our drink away :(, and when Tom kept leaving his galoshes all over the boat. Highlights included Tony spearing the Lionfish, sunny weather, Junkanoo, Eleuthera and all the fantastic hard work that the crew put in to make our experience fantastic! 

 

P.S. The dishes were SPARKLING!

First sailing vacation in the BVI's aboard a classic tall ship!

First sailing vacation in the BVI's aboard a classic tall ship!

For my first sailing experience on a tall ship in the BVI's it was incredible. The Liberty Star was just a good enough size for Josh and I to feel included if needed with the crew, or feel like we were on the boat all by ourselves. It helped that we were the only ones sailing this trip, but I am sure if the boat was full, it would still feel the same. The entire crew were phenomenal. The captain gave us tons of options for us to do each day and never pressured us into one thing or another. Carlos was very well informed in terms of sailing and was so calm and gentle with the crew that it made the sailing more enjoyable. Even the other crew mentioned that Carlos was one of the best Captains that they have sailed under because of his demeanor.

 

          Tia, who cooked for us was awesome as well. Not only was her food amazing but talking to her and experiencing some of the excursions with her were just as awesome. She always had a smile  on her face and took extra care of us. She was willing to change up the meals to meet our varied palates and never complained about doing so either. She is an amazing woman and has done some extraordinary things. She supplies lots of laughs but also some down home comfort when needed!! She is a keeper.

          Scott the deckhand..or dinghy captain as I liked to call him had to be the most entertaining person on the ship. Granted he is a young kid, but his knowledge of sailing exceeded his age. He knew so much about it and was always willing to teach us about sailing ,that it made the trip so much more enjoyable. He was hilarious and was never afraid to laugh at himself. He was the one we spent the most time with, as he was in charge of taking us to shore all the time...and he made those trips exciting. He was a complete and utter gentleman, and would help us when ever we needed anything. A lot of nights, he was our main entertainment...and he never let us down. For being a 19 year old on a ship in the Caribbean, he never once let his professionalism slip. And that amazed me. He definitely made me smile...ALOT!

        The entire crew were amazing and I think that helped make the trip so much more enjoyable. They allowed Josh and I our space when we wanted it, and came and talked to us when we got tired of each other :). It was definitely worth every penny and I would do it again in a heartbeat!!!

Off Shore Sailing Adventure on the East Coast aboard a classic Tall Ship!

Off Shore Sailing Adventure on the East Coast aboard a classic Tall Ship!

To the captain and crew of the Liberty Clipper, I cannot express the gratitude I feel for having spent the last 2 weeks on board this boat sailing up the east coast with all of you.  I came to find adventure, escape and peace, and I found all that and more.  You guys are fantastic and your ship is the best!  I'll never forget the time I've had sailing with the Liberty Clipper.

The perfect Sailing trip in the Bahamas on a windjammer sailing ship!

The perfect Sailing trip in the Bahamas on a windjammer sailing ship!

I have to say that while you are aboard the Liberty Clipper every day surprises you and is better than the last.  The first night at the dock was hot and claustrophobic and I thought this was a trick from my husband to wean me off my "princess ways".  By the third day, we both were napping happily inside the lower single bunk, no problem!  The days were so beautiful; the winds were perfect for sailing, the food was fantastic-the salads so fresh, amazing!  A highlight of the trip for me was climbing the mast with Sean-in celebration of my 50th.  It was an awesome experience.  We all knew this trip was "different"- and yet the crew pulled together and made it very special.  Hope they know their efforts were noticed and we are all amazed at their character and ability to 'get on' despite it all.  They are remarkable people.  Sailing is in my blood and my husband knew nothing else would do for my birthday.  He nailed it! It was just amazing!  Thank you Captain Chris, Sean, John, Amanda, and all the rest.

We had a blast on our Caribbean voyage sailing around the Exuma Islands

We had a blast on our Caribbean voyage sailing around the Exuma Islands

Thank you all so much for a fabulous 2nd voyage sailing the Exumas and birthday (12th anniversary of 29 years!).  The crew is wonderful.  They made us feel like we were rejoining long lost friends.  We loved snorkeling in the cave, the swine island (glad Tenley is fast), the iguanas, and especially an entire week without internet/e-mail/work, and the many Mike sightings.  Thanks for teaching us how to tie knots (Amanda and Sean), for giving the four of us alone time (Kyle, Sean and "Boats").  Also thank you to Jan for the wonderful food and making me special meals for my crazy low sodium diet, for Maggie for sharing laughs and Chris for keeping us safe.  Also loved the puppies!  Thank you all so much.  If you are ever in Aggie land (College Station, TX)- please let us know.

Sincerely,

Heather M. and Tom B.

Our fantastic experience cruising the Caribbean and Eleuthera on a 18th Century Clipper Ship!

Our fantastic experience cruising the Caribbean and Eleuthera on a 18th Century Clipper Ship!

My husband and I didn't know what to expect, but we were not let down.  The crew was very professional while being fun and informative.  It is amazing how hard they work and never complain.  They work like a well oiled machine.  We were lucky to have been on the ship when they had two little puppies they got from a shelter.  They were so loving, cute, fun and helped us with our sadness of leaving our 3 puppies at home.

All the places in the Bahamas we went were wonderful, and we just chilled out.

What a great "family" crew.  We love you all.  I hope to see you again.

Sailing and Exploring the Caribbean Islands aboard a beautiful classically rigged Tall Ship!

Sailing and Exploring the Caribbean Islands aboard a beautiful classically rigged Tall Ship!

We have always wanted to sail around the islands of the Bahamas and go into the coves where others don't go.  This trip was excellent!  The crew worked together and provided whatever was asked.  The first night we met up some of the crew for a fish fry- had the "conch" experience. From there on, the trip on the Liberty Clipper was nothing but wonderful.

Thanks so much <3

An outstanding sailing adventure in the Caribbean aboard a Tall Ship

An outstanding sailing adventure in the Caribbean aboard a Tall Ship

The whole experience was better than I hand hoped for.  Everything was outstanding.  The crew made the adventure enjoyable, fun, entertaining, and certainly tasty,  I can honestly say their was nothing negative about this trip.  The Liberty Clipper, the crew and the other guests.  We plan on sailing the British Virgin Islands on the Liberty Star next year and we will point anybody that is interested in tall ship cruises to Liberty Fleet of Tall Ships.

Thanks so much,

A beautiful windjammer voyage in the Caribbean

A beautiful windjammer voyage in the Caribbean

From Duluth,

The ship looked beautiful when we first saw it and the 6 day voyage was just as beautiful.  The crew was also great, including the chef who made us tons of food each day.  We had lots of fun and enjoyed the off ship islands.  We would do it again on Liberty Clipper!

A wonderful windjammer cruise in the beautiful Bahamas

A wonderful windjammer cruise in the beautiful Bahamas

We had a GREAT TIME!!

It is so nice to be sailing the Exuma Islands and enjoying the salty fresh air.  The crew was wonderful, polite, and fun.  The water, the water was the blue that is so pleasing and soothing to the soul.  We went to some wonderful beaches like the ones you see on screen savers and travel shows.  The food was great!!! Then there is the Liberty Clipper, what a wonderful ship to take us on this wonderful experience sailing the Bahamas!

Amazing Sailing cruise in the Bahamas aboard a Windjammer!

Amazing Sailing cruise in the Bahamas aboard a Windjammer!

Our mission on this trip was to have the experience of being on a Tall Ship and finding clean beaches.  Both of these were accomplished.  One of the best parts of the trip is the CREW. They were very friendly and work well together.  Talking to Jan the cook was a lot of fun; she has nice stories, and she went out of her way to cook vegetarian food.  The experience was great.  I was not a big fan of getting into water with the swine, but that's just me, it seems like everyone else liked it.  I enjoyed the snorkeling events best.  The food was great.

Thanks a lot,

Isabel

Amazing week in the Exumas aboard the perfect windjammer

Amazing week in the Exumas aboard the perfect windjammer

WOW! What a week! We both agree sailing the Bahamas on a Tall Ship has been one of the best weeks of our lives. Our adventures around the Exumas included crystal clear waters, white soft sandy beaches, wild iguanas and swimming swine, as well as the colorful fish and exotic reefs.

The crew (including Captain Chris, Jon, Jan & Jason (chefs), Shawn, Clint, Amanda, Maggie & Mike) were AMAZING! Thanks for a fantastic week with so many highlights, we loved our Windjammer Cruise!

We will be returning from Australia to do it all again.

Lots of love,

The Aussies - Sarah & Luke xoxo

Welcoming crew, felt like home after our 6 day trip aboard the Windjammer Liberty Clipper

 

Wow. Just wow. We didn't know what to expect on a Tall Ship cruise when we joined up with the Liberty Clipper at Nassau Yacht Haven. But from the time we boarded, till the time we left it was like stepping into our own home. The crew was amazing, so welcoming, yet so down to earth and knowledgeable. I will never forget them and the family we became. 

 

Cheers to Jan and Sean for the food. Unbelievable!

Dream wedding on the Beach courtesy of a Tall Ship Windjammer in the Bahamas!

We had our dream island wedding on board the Liberty Clipper.  It was better than our expectations.  Captain chose a perfect spot for the occasion.  Jan and Jason served a perfect dinner topped with a perfect rum cake.  The whole crew and all the passengers joined in the celebration and made our day a PERFECT day and as well as a memorable one.

Captain Chris runs the ship with an easy going authority of one who knows his ship.  He made sure all the passengers had a great time.  The first mate was great also.  All of the crew were friendly and helpful.  Wyn and I enjoyed the trip and will recommend the Liberty Clipper to all.
