What People Say About Shambala Charters

Many sailing schools can teach you how to sail, but if you want to learn about cruising, then find a skipper who is living the cruising life. That’s why we chose to charter with Captain Suky in Exuma aboard her spacious 41 foot Morgan Out Island sailboat, Shambala.

Captain Suky specializes in taking new and old sailors alike and training them to become capable and independent cruisers. She can certainly teach you about sail trim and boat handling, but she’ll also train you how to get the most out of the cruising lifestyle. While typical charters will pamper you with concierge like hospitality, Captain Suky will take care of you while ensuring you learn skills such as course planning, chart reading (paper and electronic), anchoring, effective crew communication, stowing the sails, engine maintenance basics, power management, boat safety, provisioning, and galley management. We enjoyed our time with Captain Suky so much that we went back to the Bahamas a second time with her and learned even more. Recently, we bought our own cruising sailboat, and hired Captain Suky again, but this time to join us on our boat for two days of hands on cruising skills development, coaching, and docking practice.

Last year I had the opportunity to spend 10 days aboard Shambala in early January. The weather was quite a bit rainy but after every rain we would see beautiful rainbows. Some of the highlights were hiking the various gorgeous nature trails that the knowledgeable Captain took us to and sailing to some of the uninhabited cays, spending time snorkeling and enjoying small sweet secluded beaches. I enjoyed the simple but delicious meals on the boat especially the boat/home grown sprouts. Shambala is a cozy but sturdy vessel- this is not a lux boat but a real, true, intimate sailing experience. Captain Suky is a thoughtful and patient teacher if learning to sail is your thing. She would impart little gems of sailing wisdom along the way and tell us funny expressions like a little bit of blue in the clouds is called the dutchman's britches and big waves are elephants (you want them to lie down- HA) I had an amazing and magical time ( did I mention all the rainbows and dolphins swimming with the boat and feeding stingrays at the conch shack???) It is an experience I will treasure and hope to repeat! -Bon Voyage!
