    1. What is the difference between a catamaran and a real sailboat?

      A catamaran has two hulls instead of one, the result is a more stable ride. It's like comparing a Rolls Royce to a Dune Buggy.

    2. Will I get seasick?

      Because catamarans are more stable, most people don't have any problems. However, if you are very susceptible to sickness, you may want to take seasick pills.

    3. Will I get wet?

      If you're outside on the trampolines, there is a pretty good chance you'll get wet.  If you really don't want to get wet, you can stay in the cabin.  With a 360 degree view, you won't miss a single thing.

    4. Are we going to get out at Alcatraz?

      No, this is strictly a sailing experience. You will not have the opportunity to get out and explore the island.
