A wonderful experience on a great boat. We cruised under sail out to a pristine swimming and snorkel spot, enjoying light fare and wine along the way. The cruise home under the stars was truly brilliant.

With ten people we didn't have a lot of options for a private charter, so I'm happy to report that everything went off without a hitch and we all had a great time with Jocelyn and Phil. We spent a couple hours sailing around the islands and another hour snorkeling at a really pretty cove where we had a really... More

This charter was perfect! Jocelyn and Phil were gracious and welcoming. Not to mention, the pork chops were unreal! If we come back to St. Thomas, we would definitely book these guys again.

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
