This trip is absolutely superb! It was, by far, the highlight of our recent cruise when we stopped in St. Thomas on July 12. What set this apart is that Capt. Max really makes your whole group feel like a special guest on her sailboat. She is a very gracious host who is extremely attentive to the needs of everyone... More

I had never been on a sailboat and I had never been snorkeling - Captain Max has made me a true believer! I embarked on this adventure during a port stop from a cruise ship on June 24, 2014 and I could not be happier. There were only three of us sailing with the two member crew (she limits the... More

Our family (us and our 3 teenagers) had a fabulous time with Captain Max on "The Lou" We left out of Red Hook and made two stops to go swimming and snorkeling. The fish were plentiful and beautiful. We were out for the entire day, so Max had prepared a delicious chicken and fruit plate for us, that even the... More

This was our 4th sailing trip with Max over 14 years, and as always, it was a great day! Max is a great sailor and great conversationalist. She has a great first mate, Andrew on this trip was a bonus snorkeling with us to point out things. As always, the lunch was great, and she accommodated our gluten free daughter... More

I had the good fortune to read about Captain Max and Lou on trip advisor and booked a day sail with her for my husband's birthday trip. The weather was a bit cloudy and windy starting out, but it did not deter Captain Max nor her mate, and I could tell we were in very experienced and capable hands. We... More

Captain Max and Andrew were fantastic hosts for a day trip over to St. John. I can only emphasize what every other reviewer says about their experience and tell you that this is not something you want to miss. Max is a very experienced and knowledgeable captain who was a pleasure to talk to and learn about the surroundings. Snorkeling... More

Capt Max and Mate (Andrew) were great hosts aboard the Lou. Lunch was beautifully served and tasty, and the winds were amazing. Andrew pointed out some great sights and creatures snorkeling we would have otherwise missed. It was a fun and relaxing day.

Our sail with Captain Max and her first mate, Andrew was "the " most outstanding day trip we have ever taken, hands down!!! We are always a bit leery of booking excursions aside from our cruise line, but if you research(tripadvisor) and take that leap of faith you will be rewarded, with Capt Max we scored BIG TIME!!! Max picked... More

Had a great time with Captain Max and Andrew aboard "Lou". Started with an awesome sail across to St. John, snorkeled Hawk's Nest with Andrew guiding and leading the way. It was really nice to have someone who knows the fish and can really walk us through what we were seeing. Lunch was served on the boat, and holy delish!... More

Our day with Captain Max, her crew, and sail boat was excellent! We went to two excellent spots off St John with a tasty lunch break in the middle. I would not hesitate to recommend a private excursion to anyone looking to get in some quality snorkeling, which unfortunately, is getting a bit hard to come by.
