A beautiful and truly classic sailing ship. With 12 cabins for just 16 guests this is a very spacious yacht, and a good option for single guests as they can travel with their own cabin with no supplement. It is also a great option for true sailors at heart and an exhilarating experience when the sails are raised. Ample deck space and a large open dining and lounge area with lots of light and plenty of room to relax and enjoy the views. Launched in 1997, this barquentine is a great option with a fantastic itinerary which visits some of the best islands and visitor sites in the archipelago. Run by Andando Tours, a company with a great reputation for quality of service, friendly helpful crews and first class naturalist guides. The yacht has been awarded the Smart Voyager certificate for adherence to sound environmental practices.

The Mary Anne has two great 8 day itineraries. In terms of which itinerary of East or West 8-day options we think is the best - they are both equally good! However if you have a particular interest in birds or reptiles and depending on the time of year of your visit, one could have the edge over the other – but we can help advise on this. Here are PDF’s of the 8 itinerary options, and below is the full 15 day itinerary.
