'Beachcomber's' beach-access front ladder provides the perfect access to get the Island sand beneath your feet. We've prepared a Picnic Hamper (+ picnic blanket/cabana) that our guests can choose to take ashore to enjoy their Prosecco and Cheese and Fruit Platter on the Island! or Guests can choose to stay aboard Beachcomber and enjoy their Prosecco and Platter while relaxing on deck!
