After you snorkel and explore the island of St John the Captain and crew provide a delicious lunch of barbecue chicken, corn on the cob, sautéed vegetables, buttered rolls and Champagne all cooked fresh right on board the boat. After lunch you can set off to explore the uninhabited Islands and Cays surrounding St. John, Mingo, La Vongo, Grass and Thatch Cay. There you will find some of the best snorkeling and sailing anywhere in the Virgin Islands. Finally with a maximum of six passengers, you can take a turn at the helm or just lay back and relax and soak up the tropical sun while enjoying the pleasures of being pampered on your own 42 foot sailing yacht.Morningstar Update: We have just added a beautiful 42' Sparkman Stephens to our fleet. We can now accommodate up to 12 guests per day (6 per boat) in fabulous Regatta Sails. We pride ourselves in being the most flexible and customer service focused attraction on island. Please feel free to contact us at any time for all of your vacation needs!NEW!!! We now have custom power boat tours to the beautiful BVI! « less

I say "second best" day ever ONLY because the "best" was on a friend's (i.e., private) catamaran, and I say "best second" because it was only on our second day in St. Thomas when my sister and I booked a day sail with Morningstar Charters from Point Pleasant Resort, where we stayed for two nights. We could not have made... More

Morningstar is a top notch organization. Shawn in reservations was very responsive to my first email sent about a week before our excursion. He answered all my questions and followed up with a phone call for booking and an email with all the confirmation details. The Morningstar boat was perfect for our outing and Captain Matt and his first mate,... More

Friends of ours found this outfit on Trip Advisor and it was better than advertised! We had 6 people on a real sail boat for the day. Capt Matt and first mate Macy were great. Very knowledgeable and friendly. My wife and I have done over 20 on the water excursions throughout the Caribbean and this was a truly unique... More

When the only St. Thomas sailing option provided by our cruise ship sold out before we could sign up, we contacted Morningstar. We're sure glad we did! We traded a crowded catamaran for a peaceful sail with only 8 people on board. Morningstar made arrangements for a cab driver to pick us up from our cruise ship. Captain Mike and... More

Based on the high recommendation that I found on tripadvisor, I decided to book a day sail with Morningstar for March 13, the day that our NCL cruise stopped in St. Thomas. Boy am I glad I checked with tripadvisor to find an excursion that was not related to cruise line. This was the best excursion ever in my 30... More

What a great day sail! From the very beginning, Morningstar was a pleasure to work with. We were greeted with a smile and enthusiasm for the day by Matt, the captain. He then took us over to get fitted for snorkel gear (they even had noodles so we could just float around) where we met Macie who would be helping... More

I booked a Morningstar sail as an excursion to do while in St.Thomas for the day, instead of booking a cruise excursion - and what a great decision. My Mom and I were cruising with Royal Carribbean and the cruise ended up being quite late arriving into port. I called Morningstar to advise them of the delay, convinced we would... More

Candice! Thank you so much for taking a few minutes to leave such kind words. We had such a beautiful day on the Caribbean Sea with you and your Mother! Your day with us was memorable in so many ways. It was Macy's first day, and we were able to couple a day sail trip with a sunset trip! Awesome...... More

There is nothing better than being on the water in a sail boat and Mike and Bridgett made the experience unforgettable. The fact they only take six passengers guarantees that you receive personal, friendly attention. They made sure everyone was comfortable and having fun. Lunch was delicious. We would definitely do this again.

Our trip to St. Thomas was complete when we took our daysail with Morningstar. They explained everything that was going on and provided whatever we needed or wanted. Mike's seamanship to avoid little oncoming rain squalls and keep us dry was amazing! We enjoyed snorkeling at Honeymoon Beach and saw turtles and a ray. When my husband swam away and... More

Morningstar charters truly shows you an Unforgettable time!! Bridget and mike make you feel like royalty, waiting on your every need. They have a full bar on the boat(their special drink is a pirates painkiller! I suggest trying it). My friend and I were on spring break visiting STJ and this by far was my favorite part of the trip.... More
