Where to begin... This trip on Free Ingwe with Tyler and Erika was more than I ever could have imagined. The food that Erika whipped up was not only amazing tasting, but healthy (our request) and beautiful! Tyler was always there with an amazing story and a good laugh, in addition to being knowledgeable, a fantastic dive master and an outstanding captain. Throughout the trip we played tons of games they had on board, did 7 dives, learned the basics of sailing, had great shore excursions and had plenty of time to relax and take in the atmosphere. Usually my husband, Peter, and I try to never go to the same place/vacation twice, but we are already talking about how to fit this into our 2019 plans. Tyler and Erika, See you Soon! (and tell the Flamingo Hi for us)...

The interior is very modern and clean with light ash wood and Caribbean colours on the soft furnishings. Three queen size cabins offer the perfect haven for up to six people, all in air conditioned comfort.

There are all modern amenities such as wi-fi and an onboard watermaker – you can have a carefree shower on the transom after a swim and not worry about the water. Free Ingwe has a great toy cupboard with everything from board games and books to a kayak and kneeboard.

Why book Free Ingwe – DIVING – Captain Tyler loves to dive and Free Ingwe has everything onboard for you to visit the best dive sites in the BVI. Haven’t tried diving before?
