The Traditional Caique Experience


Sailing always makes people hungry, which is why we usually pack generous picnics aboard our beautiful, Traditional Wooden Caique when we take guests on private cruises. Even if you’re only coming aboard for sunset drinks, a breath of sea air will sharpen your appetite for the exquisite canapés served with your champagne. If the breeze is off the land, you will find yourself further seduced by the scents of warm earth, wild thyme, sage, dittany, lavender and citrus groves. Intoxicating, even without the fizz.
