Fun day!

Great sailing and snorkeling, tasty food, no crowds, and good company made this a great excursion! Jocelyn, Sophia, and the Captain all made this a wonderful experience.

We had a group of 7 and went for an afternoon sail on May 15-- what a FABULOUS trip. Everything was very well planned in advance, so we all knew what to expect. We were all very well fed, with various finger foods, cheeses, grapes etc offered drinks throughout the 4 hour sail as well. Anything we needed, Jocelyn was... More

We had a bright sunny day for our full day sailing trip. We were only staying in St. Thomas for 4 days so this day on the boat was wonderful. We stopped at two spots for some snorkeling and had a yummy filling lunch that was cooked and waiting for us when we came back to the boat from the... More

The day spent with Jocelyn, Capt Phil and Sophia was definitely one of the best "excursions" my family and I have ever experienced!! The entire day was perfect, from the appetizers, snacks, Jocelyns special rum punch, and the best pork chop I've ever eaten!! Capt Phil took us to some picture perfect places where we snorkeled and just lounged around.... More

Our family of three recently joined Captain Phillip, Jocelyn, and Sophia for a full-day private sailing trip. It was the perfect activity for our vacation in Saint John. Captain Phillip and Jocelyn picked us up at the dock across the street from Mongoose Junction around 10am and we spent the morning sailing. Jocelyn is extremely hospitable and so sweet. We... More

Capt. Phill & Jocelynn showed us a great time! They were very hospitable and accommodating to our desires. They let us play our own music. They were fun to hang out with. And they took us to a VERY cool bay where the snorkleing was awesome!! Also the meal was fabulous! Jocelynn is a great cook! It was my sons... More

We have sailed out of RedHook in St Thomas aboard other charters and all have provided a wonderful day. What sets ”Oh Be Joyful” apart from the other were the Crew; Jocelyn - owner, First mate and bartender, Captain Phil at the helm and the grill, second mate Sophia in charge of tail wagging made the difference. It was all... More

What a great day!!! There were 7 of us in our group, which was a perfect size for the boat. Jocelyn, Capt Phil and of course little Sophia couldn't have been more accommodating. Phil even let one of the members of our group take the helm because he is contemplating purchasing a sailboat, so it was great experience for him.... More

I would recommend this experience to anyone!!! The Captain, Jocelyn and Sophia were so very welcoming making sure you are taken care of every minute. Jocelyn is a great cook and hostess, sailing was wonderful and snorkeling fun even though the Captain had to dive for the flipper I lost. I look forward to visiting the island again and I... More

We have sailed with Capt. Dave many times over the years. Unfortunately Capt. Dave passed away last Fall and his wife Jocelyn is continuing the business with Capt. Phillip. I am a somewhat retired sailboat skipper and need my sailing fix occasionally with others doing the work. We again had a great time in spirited conditions and would do it... More
