Ship Snapshots

Vela Vela Vela Vela Vela Vela Vela Vela
Max Passengers: 26
Ship Type: Sailing Vessel

Her name means “sail.” One look, and you’ll be taken back to a time when tall ships ruled the waves. Everything about Vela will light your imagination and inspire a sense of wanderlust. Newly refitted, Vela’s snug cabins all feature portholes and private bathrooms. Her teak decks are spacious and inviting with plenty of room to spread out.

Days aboard the Vela begin with a casual breakfast which includes fresh fruit and a different hot entree each day. The daily plans begin with on deck discussion about the port of call and insightful tips on what to do and how to get around. Of course, guests don't need to leave the ship at all! Lounge on the deck all day, basking in the warm Caribbean sun or swim off the side of the ship. Dinner may be a casual buffet or a sit-down dinner in the saloon or on the aft deck – but it’s never formal, with no assigned seating and no need to dress up. Complimentary locally brewed beer, wine, and soft drinks are available all day.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
