I have many pleasant memories of this boat. It used to be owned/captained by Lana, an awesome character that befriended me on my first visit to Culebra. She was tough talking, hard living and, underneath it all, possessed a heart of gold. My first trip on Tanama was a sunset cruise out to Luis Pena. She poured stiff rum and cokes, played salsa on her boombox and took turns dancing with my handicapped friend and me. It was the night I determined I would be returning to Culebra often.
Lana was found one morning on the boat, having passed away during the night. When I got the email, I cried.
Now the boat is in the capable hands of Capt. Pat, who had it in much better shape than I remember. Along with Capt. Jack, who pilots Muff the Magic Dive Boat, this couple runs one of the more colorful water-taxi businesses in Culebra. Both boats are fun. Which one you choose depends on whether you wish to view reefs from the boat, or hear salty tales about the Caribbean. Go for it!
