Wow! I had loads of fun aboard the Captain Nautica Screaming Eagle. It was a high-speed adventure that ensured every patron would scream and get soaking wet, and that is what happened! I arrived at the dock in Yacht Haven Grande early in the morning. Since the weather was scorching, I put on lots of sunblocks to ensure that I don’t get sunburned. Captain Brandon greeted me and explained what to expect on this tour. After signing the disclaimer form, I boarded the Screaming Eagle speedboat and buckled my seat belt. My adventure officially began!
The first stop was the Charlotte Amalie Harbor. It was interesting to see the heart of the United States Virgin Islands from an ocean viewpoint. All of the stores and offices resembled a multicolor historical art show in the distance. Government House that sat gloriously on Government Hill was the main attraction. From where I was, none of the structures seemed real and the cars and trucks that were driving by looked like remote controlled toys in motion.
It was here that I experienced my first soak down as the captain swirled the boat in circles; splashing the waves on myself and other patrons who screamed at the thought of the vessel possibly capsizing. When he slowed down, the captain then shared some historical stories about the Harbor. Afterward, we sped off and stopped close to Water Island.
Naturally, Captain Brandon spoke about some of the famous tourist attractions on Water Island. The pristine Honeymoon Beach, the historic Fort and Salt Water Pond were some of the places that he mentioned. Once again, as the boat came to a halt, everyone screamed and was drenched with the salty Atlantic Ocean. The splashes of water felt refreshing, and it was a great way to stay cool in the tropical temperatures. After spending a few minutes there, the Captain Nautica Screaming Eagle sped past Hassel Island. Our final stop was the Indian Head Rock.
I was awestruck as I gazed at the natural beauty of the Indian Head Rock. The rock was not a human-made structure. The highest point of the Indian Head Rock had eroded into an Indian’s Head as a result of the natural elements. The side profile of the face featured eyes, a pointed nose and a mouth that gaped open. The Indian Head was overlooking the ocean, the side of the cliff appeared to hold it up. The structure was amazing! It was one of the many mysteries and hidden treasures of mother earth. If you are someone who adores, appreciates and loves nature, add the Indian Head Rock to your bucket list. You will not be disappointed!
That concluded the tour. Captain Nautica Screaming Eagle headed back to the dock. On the way, several sudden stops allowed everyone to scream while getting drenched before getting off the boat for the last time.
If you are interested in going on this adventure, then make sure you put on sunblock, wear a bathing suit and leave all of your valuables on the dock. There is no room on the boat to hold luggage, purses any loose items, not even your flip-flops. Therefore, put on your swimsuit, buckle up and get ready to SCREAM!
Overall, I had a blast!
