Xydas Family Adventure at Sea

Steve and Geri Xydas and their four girls aged 6,8,10 and 12 years joined us aboard Makara for a family adventure at sea last week.

Lindsay explains what they are seeing won’t hurt them, keeping the girls safe and happy.

Sometimes the weather allows us to make it out to a very special place on the reef, where there are large groupers to give snacks.

We see dolphins about 50% of the time. Very rarely do we get to drive the dinghy next to them like this. Today was a special treat, as the dolphins had young ones and they were feeling playful.

We packed in kayaking, snorkeling, sailing, grouper feeding, swimming, catch and releasing snappers, jumping off the front of the boat and drifting underneath and watching sunsets in two days! Whew!

Geri really wanted Lindsay to share her recipes. We all agreed the easiest way would be to add them to our website. In the near future, we will be adding recipes and pictures of the food we serve onboard for you to share with family and friends. Enjoy!
