Tony and Melody aboard Utopia

This is a unique vacation, living on a private boat and sailing to a new island paradise each day. It is luxurious, but also very affordable. Why spend your vacation on a crowded cruise ship where you only get 5 – 6 hrs to enjoy each island? They will take you where the cruise ships can’t and you will get to experience everything the islands have to offer from sunrise to sunset.

Everything is flexible and can be adjusted. Tony and Melody will sail Utopia and take care of all mooring, docking, and navigation on the boat. If you want to learn we will be glad to teach you as much as you want about sailing. If you want to relax on the trampolines while sipping boat drinks its up to you. This is your vacation. After offering suggestions, where we go and what we do is all up to you… of course as long as the weather cooperates.
