What about hurricanes?

Living in the Caribbean means that hurricanes can, and sometimes do, happen. We think that one of the best things about Sea Loco is that it weathered and withstood two Category 5 hurricanes in 2017 with no damage. If you’ve seen the reports of damage to St. Thomas and the losses that some of our neighbors sustained, you know that it’s a real testament to Sea Loco’s build and structural integrity. Natural disasters can happen anywhere, but Sea Loco has proven that it can withstand some of the strongest challenges Mother Nature can throw at her.
