Dreaming of Paradise?
— Makana Delivers! Ever dream of getting away without a care in the world to explore a tropical paradise filled with
islands, beaches, and coral reefs, with great food and accommodation? Rick, Katie, and Hoku can take you there on Makana,
an elegant 38’ sailing catamaran that seems like your private flying-carpet for the voyage. For the last two years,
we’ve spent a week in midwinter exploring the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park in the central Bahamas with them, far from
the hustle and bustle of cruise ships, casinos, and resorts of the travel-brochure Bahamas. After nearly 50 years as marine
biologists and travel photographers we’ve had more than our share of adventure in remote, beautiful places with strange-sounding
names. Relaxing on the Makana is our favorite way to enjoy stress-free days in one of the most beautiful places we’ve
found. A week on Makana with the Carosellis is better than a month at the most exotic spa with your
Also, a Bahamian Dark & Stormy expertly prepared by Rick definitely sets the standard for
a delicious refreshment.…Dorothy & Gary 2012 and 2013
"With a husband in the Navy, we have traveled to many places but nothing quite beat our experience aboard Makana.
My husband and our teenage boys flew into Exuma, Bahamas and met this 38' catamaran at the Four Seasons marina. We were greeted
by the captain, Rick, and his lovely wife, Katie, and their darling 7 year-old daughter and cabin girl, Hoklani. While aboard,
we took in sunshine, great food, beautiful sites, and crystal clear water. We explored Stocking Island and took an excursion
to Georgetown and Hooper Bay. A highlight included a local sharing his recipe for Conch Salad and then the next day snorkeling
to find our own conch. If you really want a vacation where you truly experience something better than a hotel room, we strongly
recommend a voyage on Makana. We hope to get aboard again soon!
Jody & Boys
just wanted to once again thank you for making our experience aboard Makana a wonderful experience. It more than surpassed
our expectations and was a fun adventure that we'll remember for a long time. Your generosity in sharing your sailing skills,
your knowledge and the "live aborad" life was such an unexpected bonus! We count you amoung our newest friends.
Best wishes." (July 2011)
