If you are in St. Thomas and want to experience a sail/charter experience, this is the one! The boat and crew are fantastic, the lunch was amazing and the snorkeling was amazing. Do not miss this opportunity!

We had such a wonderful time! It was the last full day of our trip and we were so glad to end it with this experience! Capt. Rick and Wes were very personable, hospitable, and attentive to making this a great trip for everyone. The snorkeling stops they chose were awesome, that water can't get any more beautiful!? The food... More

We had the best time on this sail boat. Rick made it feel like I was spending the day enjoying his hobby. We were a part of their day and they enjoyed having us along. As well as, we really sailed and the wind took us on a tremendous ride! They really know how to sail the virgin islands (not... More

Our family of 13, 8 adults and 5 children, enjoyed a spectacular day with Rick and Wes on the Nightwind. It will be added to our "must do" list for our family vacations in St. Thomas.

Our day started w/ a short taxi ride from the Marriott Frenchman's Reef - 30' ride including a stop to drop off another family at the ferry to St. John. Rick and his son, Wes, greeted us dockside. I had a few email exchanges with Rick's wife Cathy prior to our arrival to confirm logistics - all very responsive. Our... More

My wife and I sailed with Captain Rick and Wes on the same day as Theresa- see her review below. We both agreed, without reservation , that this was the highlight of our week and one of the best day adventures we have ever had. The Nightwind is a beautiful boat, well maintained, and had plenty of room for th... More

It was easy and encouraging to make arrangements by phone with Cathy,and our walk to the boat was just two minutes from the VRBO studio condo at sapphire Beach. After removing out sandals, Rick and son Wes welcomed us and started offering drinks and a plate of fruit and pastry. We lucked on a strong sailing day and leaned hard... More

It was an amazing day aboard the Nightwind for our family and the family we were traveling with (nine of us in total.) The Nightwind is gorgeous and Captain Rick and his son Wes were excellent hosts. Our glasses were never empty and our bellies were full...from mimosas, pastries and fruits in the morning to an excellent and beautifully prepared... More

Captain Rick and Mate Wes gave us a day we will never forget! We had a group of six, and shared the yacht with only a few other couples. Some other friends of ours booked a different sailing charter and didn't even get to go because their captain said it would probably rain and be cold. Captain Rick knew better,... More

Captain Rick O'Dell and his son Wesley made us feel like members of their family from the moment we boarded the yacht Nightwind. They looked after our every need while sailing us to the perfect snorkel spots off St. John to see rays, sea turtles, barracudas, and many colorful fish of all shapes and sizes, a perfect lunch, killer chocolate...
