Sailing with Max was hands down the best part of our vacation in St. Thomas. We had Jordan leading us on an awesome snorkeling adventure. The trip included 3 couples and was very relaxing and laid back. We had perfect weather and it was definitely a stellar day for sailing. Max provided an awesome lunch and delicious drinks. A sailing... More

Sailing with Captain Max and Jordan was amazing. We liked going on the S/V Lou best because of the smaller size and more intimate setting of no more than 6 people. Our trip had 3 couples who were all were very friendly laid back. First mate Jordan was great fun and full of energy. While snorkeling in Caneel Bay we... More

We would not go to St. Thomas without arranging for a day aboard the "Lou". Once again, Maxine provided a wonderful day of sailing, snorkeling, dining and fun. Six guests fit comfortably on the boat and you are made to feel right at home.

What an amazing way to spend Valentine's Day! During our week stay in St. Thomas we can definitely say that our day sailing with Captain Max was amongst our favorites!

Our snorkeling stops were amazing, she knew right were to take us to get the best views of various fish... More

My husband and I went on the day sail trip with Captain Max on her beautiful boat, "Lou," and had a blast! The yummy lunch she prepared reminded us of Hawaii so beautiful was the presentation and Jordan was great as our snorkel guide showing us all kinds of things from the ocean floor. We liked the fact this wasn't... More

Had a fabulous time sailing with Capt. Maxine. She met my group (she takes a total of 6) right on time at the dock and took us by dingy to her 41 foot sailboat. After hearing some safety info we set sail to St. John from St. Thomas. Her deckhand was friendly, easy going and also knowledgeable. We were in... More

Just returned on a cruise that included St Thomas where we spent the day sailing with Capt Max. After 10 minutes of hard rain before we set sail it turned out to be a great day. Capt Max and Melissa did a wonderful job on our sailing and Melissa gave us a great guided snorkel tour. Capt Max had a... More

Max is a great captain, person and chef . You will most certainly enjoy your day on her boat. The boat is rather small and we had to board onto a dingy at the dock because the boat was out on a buoy.
