Waves Boat Cruise 2017

It’s safe to say that most Caribbean people enjoy a good party or night lime. The CHTM, although focused on the academic success of it students, tries to ensure that students have a healthy social life as well. The annual boat cruise is one of many events put together not only to help ease mid-semester examination stress, but also to provide students with a warm up before the carnival celebrations.

This year’s “waves” boat cruise was on Saturday, March 18th.  Boarding commenced at 9pm and by the time we were ready to set sail at 10pm there was  a decent sized crowd. The dress code was  beach/boat attire however, persons showed up smartly dressed to suit the cold, windy evening.

The night started off  smoothly with everyone buying drinks and getting a feel for the ‘vibe’ before the real partying began. A group of local men warmed up the dance floor  displaying their synchronized moves to popular rap and R&B music.


When it was about 11pm, with the alcohol taking effect,  the party was in full swing. Persons danced the night away to a wide array of music ranging from dancehall to reggae. Some  felt that soca music dominated the boat ride while others didn’t seem to mind the selection at all.

More Selfies

As it drew close to the 1am docking time, some persons were now highly intoxicated, bare back and wearing life jackets. Persons left the boat asking for a ‘part two’ to this memorable occasion, even giving suggestions as to how it could be executed. Needless to say everyone had a blast!
