What can I say that hasn't already been said? Well we were a group of seven aged from 60+ to 4 years. We had a wonderful time. Trevor, our salty Captain and April his able seaman were wonderful hosts. The trip over from the cruise ship terminal had some planning issues that I am sure have since been worked out.... More

very relaxing sailboat, drinks were ok, not liking drinking out of plastic cheap glasses much, the captain of the sail boat is rough around the edges but he is a GREAT CAPTAIN, the tarzan swing was a huge hit. Mud bath,, a bit cheesy out of Tupperware containers. Never really snorkeled. Lunch was good

This was, by far, the highlight of our week! Our hostess, April, and our Captain, Trevor, were welcoming, friendly, accommodating, entertaining and, most importantly, professional and kept us all safe and happy. We made friendships with others on the boat that will last a lifetime. Great sailing, snorkeling, swimming and, of course, the infamous Tarzan Swing. Don't miss it!

I sailed with Random Wind on August 4th and what could have been a spectacular day turned out to be one disappointment after another. Our gruff and short tempered captain had nothing but harsh words for us. Despite what I took to be model behavior from the kids on the boat, our captain still felt the need to yell and... More

We booked this excursion based on the recommendation of the owner of the villa that we were renting and she was absolutely right in saying that we would enjoy it. There were 5 of us including my 12 year old son. It was so nice to be on a boat where there was a small number of people. April and... More

My experience on the Random Wind was great. April and Trevor were great hosts. The food was fabulous and so were the other guests. The trapeze swing was my favorite part of the day. I highly recommend it to anyone coming to the island... It is an experience that is fun for all ages.

We sailed on Random Wind about ten days ago. Having experienced dozens of snorkeling adventures throughout the Caribbean, over the last decade , Random Wind was unilaterally the worst. The reprimands from Captain Trevor began immediately. We were on the dingy, and he yelled at our friend who he had tasked with helping him with the rope. There was a... More

Captain's priority is safety. Your disrespectful ignorance compromised safety several times. Trevor's spotless record is because he is serious. Instead of scathing, hurtful reviews; perhaps you should be thanking him for keeping you safe, despite your refusal to listen. More

We sailed on Random Winds on August 4th, 2015. Each year my wife and I along with another couple plan a nice vacation during the summer. This year we decided on a cruise. We have had a lot of success doing excursions with companies not connected to the cruise line in the past. We decided to stick with that plan... More
