Abu Dhabi cruise tour company Belevari Marine is set to become the first in the region to offer fully certified ladies-only cruises following the appointment of two female captains.
Captain Amanda Hyden, of the USA, and Captain Cathy Alvarado, who is German, have more than 100 sailing hours each and both hold Royal Yacht Association Powerboat 2 Licences.
They are leading the cruises onboard Belevari Marine’s flagship 74-foot catamaran – the largest of its kind in Abu Dhabi, official news agency WAM reported.
The move comes in response to what is seen as a growing demand for cruise products that cater to the female-only market and is expected to generate strong uptake from Arabian Gulf customers.
