Alternate Latitude is an award-winning 44 foot Voyage Catamaran and Captain Doug Deleone and 1st Mate - Carolyn Sweet offer a wonderful experience with attention to all the details ensuring your family enjoys the Virgin Islands in Style. Alternate Latitude has been carefully outfitted with a fresh & comfortable exterior & interior, with navigational equipment & other electronics, cushions & linens, stereo (MP3’s – yes!) and electric heads (toilets) in all bathrooms. You will experience the security of a qualified Captain, local knowledge and flair on a comfortable & beautiful sailing vessel.
Alternate Latitude offers 3 queen staterooms, each with own bathroom. The boat comes outfitted with toys aplenty, with 2 stand-up paddle boards, snorkel equipment for the whole gang, floaties and 13' inflatable dingy. Travel to multiple Caribbean islands via your own personal charter & visit coves & islands that you couldn’t easily get to if you stayed in a hotel without paying for all the extra travel costs (ferries, taxis, etc.).
Wake up to a breakfast then either jump in the sea for a refreshing swim/snorkel or take a hike on the trails that lead you to historical spots complete with amazing views. The afternoon is a perfect time for a nap in the shade or chasing turtles on one of the stand-up paddle boards. Wind up the day with a little happy hour before dinner under the stars or opt for the delicious local West Indian fare at places such as Foxy’s or The Bitter End.
Alternate Latitude offers premium captain-only charters as well as half-board & all-inclusive charters:
For the Captain only option, your captain will take care of sailing the boat and will arrange an itinerary with you that meet your requirements taking into account weather, feasibility etc. You will be responsible for provisioning, cooking and cleaning, although the captain can make a few dinners for you. It’s a way to save money on your charter and experience a relaxed, casual sailing vacation. All toys and amenities included, so you enjoy the comfort and amenities of a crewed yacht without the expense of gourmet cuisine or the limitation of dining on board. Extra costs on Captain only charters are provisions (food and drinks) for your group and the captain, fuel, ice, local permits, customs & immigration, mooring balls & gratuities – basically anything but the boat & captain/crew.
