Sailing and the Single Traveller

I have spent some time over the last few weeks, taking a closer look at the demographic of our customer base, noticing that many of you are single travellers. For those of you who are yet to voyage with us, a holiday afloat on board Bessie Ellen offers a new travel experience filled with various outdoor pursuits, meeting new people and combining a greener way to travel with comfort and adventure.

It can be a little daunting taking the first steps in to something new so I will endeavour to interpret life on board Bessie Ellen, from first impressions to a typical day at sea;

From the moment you step on board the ship it becomes your floating home. Because we are focused on safety, and the crew are well aware that not everyone is nautical, the first thing we aim to do is teach you the ropes and terminology, thereby, enhancing your ability to take a more active role in your exciting new adventure. Most people are surprised how quickly they get the hang of it.

Day to day, we tend not to follow a strict itinerary, instead sailing to where the wind and weather dictates. Cruises are generally around islands where there is so much to see and explore, meaning that the day is frequently broken up by joining in with new found friends to set foot on deserted islands or land upon secluded beaches for a stroll and a picnic.

Evenings generally find us anchored up in an idyllic spot to enjoy some great food, story telling and possibly live music followed by a beer or glass of wine on deck to soak up the ambience, views and often breathtaking sunsets. Experience has taught us that this memory making leads to some of your fellow guests becoming lifelong friends with whom you will enjoy other adventures in the future.

If you have any queries about a voyage on board Bessie Ellen, then please do get in touch with myself, Nikki – I look forward to hearing from you.
