Want to experience one of the most serene and enjoyable boat trips in the Caribbean? The Chocolat is calling your name! The 35’ catamaran, equipped with the funny, informative Captain Rollins and his first-mate Deon, will take you to tropical escapes off of Anguilla such as Prickly Pear, Sandy Island, and on sunset cruises.
I have gone a total of seven times, and have had absolutely nothing but unforgettable moments and many laughs. There is something everyone can do, ranging from snorkeling to sunbathing and relaxing. The trip began at 9:30AM when Captain Rollins picked us up on his dingy at Sandy Ground on the island of Anguilla. Once we reached Chocolat, Deon kindly helped us onto the catamaran, which is in pristine condition. We lathered up with sun-block and started talking to fellow boat-trippers from Florida and Boston. Who would’ve thought that these strangers would soon become close friends! Captain Rollins returned from transferring everyone to the catamaran and started giving his “safety-speech”. At first, Rollins seemed intimidating and tough, but this is only because he truly cares about the safety of his customers and his boat. As minutes passed, we realized he might be one of the most interesting Anguillans, full of exciting stories and hysterical jokes. Deon kept the rum punches, water, and beer flowing as we all made our way to Prickly Pear. My sister and I lounged on the front trampoline soaking up the sun rays as the water splashed onto the boat, cooling us off. It was absolute perfection.
