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

What a perfect day! Our time in St. Thomas with Captain Dave, Jocelyn and Sophia was the highlight of our week vacation. The food, scenery, and company were all perfect. Captain Dave took us to two great private snorkeling spots. Captain Dave grilled up a delicious lunch while Jocelyn prepared appetizers and never let our drinks run dry! Captain Dave... More

Captain Dave and Jocelyn were awesome. Captain Dave took us to some fantastic, private snorkling spots. He shared the history of the area and answered our many questions about the marine life, local culture and his life story. He was such a pleasure to talk to. Jocelyn kept the drinks and appetizers flowing while Captain Dave manned the grill. The... More

We had a group of 8 and we all agreed this was the best day of an amazing vacation. Captain Dave and Jocelyn were terrific. They helped line up transportation which was waiting at the cruise ship with a sign. The boat, drinks, snorkeling and lunch were all top notch. We hope to have the chance to do this again!

At first I didn't see the logic of leaving a cruise ship to get on another boat, but I was wrong. This excursion was the highlight of my week (and the highlight for all in our group.) Captain Dave, Jocelyn and Sophia provided us with a fantastic day of food, friendship, snorkeling, swimming and just relaxing. Captain Dave certainly knows... More
