The Best Catamaran Excursion Experience

Wouldn’t it be grand to spend some time out on the water? Sailing on a catamaran is so much fun! A catamaran is a boat with two hulls, whereas a traditional monohull sailboat has one. This makes a catamaran both safer and smoother, plus it offers much more deck space. Because the deck space is much larger, they are ideal for weddings, photoshoots, parties, and any other event you would like to take place on deck. You can dance! You could have a Shiatsu massage! You can simply eat ceviche in the sun! The fact that we’re on a wide, spacious catamaran makes nearly anything possible on deck. As you sail on our catamaran, you can fish, listen to music, watch for whales, play games, and so much more. The day is yours! 

The ocean is top notch, and the beaches are pretty great too. When you choose Esmeralda Sailing for your catamaran excursion, you have your choice of several amazing destinations. Nicaragua is home to some of the best beaches in the entire world. It’s no wonder this area is so popular for tourists looking to sail in the blue water and lay on an exotic beach! Esmeralda Sailing’s large, modern catamaran boat is so comfortable and spacious, you’ll have no problem spending many hours on board traveling to exotic and tropical destinations, like Playa Trébol, Isla Anciana, Playa Blanca, or Playa Brasilito. When you’re sailing on a catamaran, though, the destination is only part of the experience. Some of the best parts of your catamaran excursion will happen while on-board! That’s why we want to pass along a few expert pieces of advice so you can have the best time possible. 

Tip #1 Pack Light

We know it can be tempting to throw everything and anything you’ve got onto the catamaran, but take our advice and pack as lightly as possible. You’ll want a swimsuit and cover-up so you can jump into the water when taking a break at your chosen destination. On the way back, you’ll be wet from swimming in the ocean and cool enough to put a light jacket back on again. Remember, we already have a lot of what you’ll need on board! Towels are included in your package, as are games, fishing equipment, balls, life vests, boogie boards, binoculars, and more.

Tip #2 Use Sunscreen

You’re in the middle of the ocean and there’s nothing in between you and the sun! Plus, the water acts as a mirror. Even if you feel like you’re not in direct sunlight, the water will reflect the sun’s rays onto your skin. That’s why packing sunscreen and possibly a cover-up is so important. Some SPF sunscreen can be the difference between absolutely loving your catamaran excursion and feeling ill for several days afterwards.

Tip #3 Drink a Lot of Water

Dehydration is just as much a factor on the water as it is in the dessert. You’re going to be warm and sweaty, making drinking lots of water very important. If you’re dehydrated, you won’t enjoy your time on the catamaran nearly as much as you otherwise would. It could also make you quite ill. We don’t want this for you! We offer other beverages on-deck, including wine, but you’re going to definitely want to cycle in water.
