What a wonderful day sailing and snorkeling at Whistling Cay and Scott beach at Caneel Bay of St. John! Captain Max is an experienced captain and a true professional. Andrew, her first mate, was a jewel when it came to snorkeling. He pointed out many fish and even went below and brought up several ocean creatures we would have missed.... More

The one downside of my day of sailing with Captain Max is that nothing that happened for the rest of my vacation could compare to that first day. A friend and I were taking a Carnival cruise (on board the Carnival Valor, departing from San Juan), and St. Thomas was our first stop. I had emailed with Captain Max in... More

A friend and I took a Carnival cruise and rather than take one of their excursions, we decided to book our own. It was a tremendous bit of luck that we stumbled into Captain Max. The day started with meeting Captain Max at the dock where we were then whisked off to her well maintained sailboat. Captain Max's attention to... More

This was our second time sailing with Capt Max and she is just as wonderful as we remember. Ours was a half day sail since we had limited time and it was great fun. Max's first mate, Andrew swam and snorkeled with us and showed us many sea creatures we would surely have missed without his expertise. Can't give enough... More

Wonderful day spent with Capt Max. Best day of a 2 week trip. My wife, 2 grown children and I spent a wonderful day sailing from Red Hook in St Thomas to St John. After two great snorkel spots and a wonderful lunch we enjoyed the sun and easterly breezes. We highly recommend a day with Capt Max. She makes... More

I booked my family (two parents and a 17-year-old) to sail with Captain Max and her first-rate First Mate Andrew on August 8 to give them this "bucket list" experience I remembered from a childhood vacation. With a nice breeze blowing, we got to St. John on wind power in no time. The whole day was exactly what I had... More

My husband and I went to St. Thomas for our honeymoon and everyone told us we had to get out sailing at some point during our trip. Our full-day sailing and snorkeling trip with Captain Max and her assistant Andrew was easily one of the most fun and memorable days we had. Max took us to two different coves on... More

Captain Maxine, her first mate Andrew and "Lou" her solid old school boat all worked to provide the best day cruise I have experienced. I was impressed by Captain Max's ability not only to sail her boat but also to accommodate her passengers. On the day we were to sail she quickly sized up the weather and suggested that on... More

We sailed with captain max and Andrew on August. 12, 2014. It was myself, my husband and our two girls ages 7 and 11. We went on a half day tour since our children were new to snorkeling. They loved it!! It was our favorite excursion from our cruise. From a safety perspective I felt comfortable and appreciated the real... More
