Sail N’ Hike
Sail up the west coast of Grenada to Black Bay where you will disembark to start our guided hike through tropical gardens and lush rain forest to the waterfalls. There, we take a cool dip in the crystal waters and enjoy some refreshments before we hike back to the coast (3.5 hours round trip). By now you will have burned up enough energy to enjoy a finger licking good BBQ prepared by our chef aboard Corsair! After a swim in the sea, we set sail and head back into the sunset. Don't forget to bring some sneakers and your camera!
About SS CORSAIR
The "Corsair" is an award winning classic Biloxi schooner built in 1976 which invokes the lines of a classic shrimper or gulf coast freighter of centuries past.
With graceful sheer and sweet lines, the ship was designed and hand-built by Captain Michael Broussard, a third generation boat builder, well known in the Biloxi area, to US Coast Guard standards. Captain Broussard was trained by Francis Herreshoff of Bristol and has taught himself at the International School of Yacht Restoration (IRYS). Corsair’s hull is crafted from Southern White Cedar and the deck from beautiful mahogany. The original Schooner rigging with two masts has been converted into a magnum gaff rigged cutter sloop with a topsail.
With a length on deck of 57 feet and 74 feet overall, Corsair is a very spacious and comfortable long range sailboat. Corsair has been up and down the East coast of the US and the Gulf of Mexico, serving as a commercial shrimp vessel, sail training vessel, participating in advertising campaigns and has even played a role in the movie "Interview with a Vampire."
In 2017 Corsair was carefully refurbished and converted from a workboat to an extremely stylish and premium quality charter vessel. The main salon is very roomy and is located adjacent to the galley which is our chef's pride. 3 double berths and 2 single berths with privacy dividers and curtains are to be found waiting for you. The bathroom is stunning and unique, Corsair may be the only modern schooner equipped with a claw foot tub.
