Everything about this day was perfect. 1. Our hosts. Jocelyn and Captain Phillip (and little Sophia) all made us feel totally welcome. They took great care of us, answered any questions, and knew what they were doing. Sophia (the dog) was small, sweet, and cuddly. 2. The food. So good! I don't know what Jocelyn did to the rice, but... More

The crew was wonderful and tried hard to make the day great for everyone on board. Everything about the experience was memorable and worth every penny. The food was one of the best meals I had on the island. I would recommend the rum punch drink, our whole family had several because it was so good! Overall it was relaxing... More

Where to start....... Jocelyn - must start at the top: After suffering a terrible loss, she is committed to carry on, and carry on she needs to do! Awesome cook (never ending 5-star quality food)! VERY hospitable! The PERFECT host! Reserved a day trip for my family of four and none of us was disappointed. My step daughter would have... More

We privately chartered 'Oh Be Joyful' while on a Disney Cruise and only on St. Thomas for the day. What a GREAT decision that was! The weather was perfect for a day sail and Jocelyn and Phil could not have been nicer or more accommodating for our group of 10 (actually turned out to be 8 since 2 had to... More

We researched for the day our ship was to be in St. Thomas. We were not disappointed one second. It was worth every cent! Sofie the dog was so sweet and laidback. Capt. and Jocelyn took us to some awesome snorkeling spots where we were the only ones there:) Lunch was delicious! Yes, we would go again in a heartbeat!

Seeing the Islands from the water was a real treat....we took the Sunset Sail and every moment was spectacular! Captain Dave and Jocelyn made our trip perfect and they made the 8 of us very comfortable every moment. Sophia made our sail even better! Thank you for the memories!!!!

Captain Dave, Jocelyn, and Sophia provided our group of 6 (ages b/t 28-35) exactly the type of trip we needed. Jocelyn is a gracious host and always made sure we were attended to. We never had to ask for drinks or food (two very important things in our group) and she did an excellent job of being a tour guide.... More

We had a fabulous day with Captain Dave, Jocelyn and Sophia. Weather was perfect as we sailed away from St. Thomas. Captain Dave took us to a secluded spot (not another boat in sight) where we snorkeled for an hour and a half. Jocelyn was the perfect host and made sure we always had a drink in our hand. The...

Captain Dave, Jocelyn, and Sophia were GREAT and created a perfect experience for my family. I have 2 kids and this was their first experience sailing. They had a blast, Captain Dave took us around St. John and we were able to snorkel near a small island all by ourselves. The drinks and appetizers were spectacular and we can't wait... More

Capt Dave, Jocelyn, and Sophie are a great team. First, we took a cab from the cruise port --they put us in with several people going to Coki Beach so we took the long way around ( $10 each). We met Capt Dave @ Red Hook and he was early to meet us. You do have to be agile enough... More
