~Adventures + Activities~

String of Pearls (formerly the Cloister Belle): The best way to take in the Golden Isles is from the water. Book sunset wine cruises, private charters + more aboard the String of Pearls. This 71′ long beauty is built of mahogany and teak, weighs 40 tons, and used to race Jack Kennedy’s sport fisherman on Cape Cod Bay. Pssst, numerous celebrities such as Bruce Springsteen, Brad Pitt, Pierce Brosnan, Harrison Ford, many statesman and a couple of princesses have enjoyed the boat over the years – indulge in your fancy side, you’re in great company.
