Owner description: It is with great sorrow and a deep sense of regret we have to inform you that our services in Tobago have been suspended indefinitely. A sense of nostalgia, full of great memories of 21 years of “Fun in the Sun” cruises sailing Tobago’s coasts, firstly with “Natural Mystic” and then with the “Island Girl” but we now find it necessary to seek out alternative locations as the present state of Tourism does not allow us to continue our operation to the standards our guests had become accustomed to over the years. We appreciate your patronage over the years and wish to see you with us at some time in the future, possibly in Beautiful Tobago, or elsewhere.

This was a holiday of a lifetime we took and our last day we went on Island Girl. The skipper and crew were fantastic the atmosphere brilliant and the buffet was plentiful and very tasty. If ever I'm back in Tobago I will definitely take another trip. Couldn't think of a better way to end out 14 days

The staff are efficient and well organized from greeting you on the beach to Captain Danny's briefing. They are all familiar with the workings of their boat and all runs smoothly from start to finish. Great drinks very substantial and tasty lunch. Wonderful snorkeling at both stops. A great way to spend a day in Tobago.

Spacious catamaran where the crew are great, attentive and good fun. The trip lasts 5 to 6 hours and takes in bays for snorkelling, cooked lunch, open bar and on our trip, 3 sightings of dolphins who played around the boat. Magical day and one which I'll repeat very time I'm here

Thanks Michael for taking the time to review our cruises, and thanks for being complimentary of our staff, they do put out their all to make sure our guests have a fun day. And you're particularly lucky to have had 3 dolphin sightings, always a magical event, most guests would be happy for just one event with dolphins. Looking forward to your next trip with us.

My brother had contacted the company to ask if they would put on a trip on a Monday as it was my birthday. They did so and I had the most amazing day. There were 16 of us and we headed off along the beautiful coast with a bar on board for those who wished to partake in alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks. We stopped first at a beautiful cove where we were able to walk along the beach or snorkel - there were some amazing fish. The crew fished and then presented us with a delicious meal of grilled fish, chicken stew, salads and garlic bread. Then they produced a birthday cake for me! After that we continued along the coast to another bay where we could snorkel over a coral reef. For me - a nervous swimmer -it was perfect as the boat was anchored and the ladders were stable and easy to use.
Then came the best bit... the sails went up and we returned along the beautiful coast with a rum punch, scrummy banana bread and sunshine, accompanied by flying fish and the sounds of Bob Marley. A perfect day, thank you so much.

We went on a catamaran trip with Captain Danny on a Wednesday. The cost was $90 US.

This was a whole day trip. We were picked up at our resort at 9:00 and were taken to Mt. Irvine beach. We didn’t leave on the catamaran until about 10:00.

We were taken to Cotton Bay on the Caribbean coast. The day we were there was pretty choppy and I’m not a strong swimmer so at first I didn’t get in the water. After about a half hour, the water settled down a bit and I went in snorkeling. I think because of the rush of the ocean, there wasn’t much to see.

We were provided with a delicious lunch consisting of grilled fish, chicken in a fabulous sauce, potato salad, green salad, bean salad. There was a seemingly endless supply of beer, rum punch, and all other alcohol drinks.

We then went further north to another area to snorkel which was a larger bay and therefore more fish.

The day we went it rained over half the time so it wasn’t the best day, but hardly the fault of the Island Girl.

We were back to Mt. Irvine at about 4:00.

It was a very enjoyable day and I highly recommend it.
