One of our favorite tour operators is Kenard Cruises. Captain Kenard runs a ship-tight operation, giving guests a truly memorable experience out on the beautiful waters of the Turks & Caicos. His craft, Dream Aweigh, is a luxury 42-foot power catamaran with all the bells and whistles. If you want to feel like the rich and famous for the day, this is the perfect way to do it.

Kenard Cruises offers half and full day charters and can accommodate groups of up to 20 or so people. The Captain and his crew and a real friendly bunch and flexible with how you want to spend you day. They can customize just about any service or catering need you have and they are your beck and call during the entire cruise. The boat itself offers loads of roam to spread out, both out on the ample decks as well as in the luxury cabin areas. It’s built for comfort and luxury, for sure
The gang at Turks and Caicos Reservations decided to ‘see for ourselves’ what great service and luxury awaits on Dream Aweigh (several of us had been out with Kenard before). We chartered the boat for a half day recently, partly to celebrate the launch of our new brand and logo. The Captain didn’t disappoint (even arranging for near-perfect weather up until the last few minutes when a refreshing shower passed by).
We left Turtle Cove Marina and sailed east along Grace Bay Beach, admiring the sandy shores and luxury accommodations that we entice tourists with every day. We passed over the Leeward Cut and sailed out in front of peaceful Pine Cay, where we anchored just off the eastern tip of the beach there (a remarkable stretch of beach it is, too). We were close to the cut separating Pine Cay from Fort George Cay and there is a large sand bar there where sand dollars abound).
Captian Kenard broke out the floaty toys, including a massive 8-foot-by-8-foot raft type thing, which every one enjoyed lounging on – and ultimately negating in a game of ‘kind of the raft.’ Cold drinks, great snacks and island music highlighted a relaxing day anchored in the quiet area off the exclusive island that is home to The Meridian Club.
We headed back toward Turtle Cove Marina in Provo just as the sun was setting, reflecting on our great day at sea. It was an awesome chance to bond as a team, and get a chance to experience a superb tour option for the guests of Turks & Caicos Reservations.
