You need to have experience to operate the Hobie cats. The shop does offer lessons if you wish to learn. For US$26, you get an hour with a private instructor who will help you to improve your confidence level. I found the lesson to be helful. The cats really give you the chance to go fast on a good, windy day. You will have to sign up in advance during high season, so be sure to plan ahead. There is a rusty shipwreck some distance out beyond the reef that you will not be able to sail out to, but it does make an interesting thing to look at as you go. You can get a little better view from the water than from the beach.
