I JUST got back from sailing in the Caribbean and this is the first thread I read. It was definitely a very active, as well as a very relaxing vacation. We got nipped by the outer, outer bands of Ophelia and our sail from the base to the island we were going to caused everyone except me and my iron stomach to get seasick in 6 to 8 foot seas. That meant I got to do all the sailing by myself while others were hunched over the lifelines losing their breakfasts. My husband, who is in real life a licensed captain who works on private yachts, was included. I found it exiting and kind of fun, plus I was proud of myself for being able to take care of the situation.
Once we got to where we were going there was lots of fishing, snorkeling, swimming, laughing, cooking, exploring, and beach combing. I think I might have suffered a bit of whiplash when I was trying to body surf a wave into shore and got knocked silly by it instead. But it was super fun.
I cannot even imagine a vacation spent passively waiting to be entertained.
