Owner description: Nightwind is a full service day sail and snorkel excursion, sailing to St John and other small islands suitable for young and old alike. Our niche is private sails for families and groups up to 15 guests. We offer open sails as well for those wishing to meet and sail with new friends. We sail and snorkel at two different locations during our full day sail. Our offerings include continental breakfast, snacks, lunch, dessert and an open bar (something for everyone).Nightwind sails from Sapphire Marina on the East End of St. Thomas close to Red Hook. Captain Rick and First Mate Wes offer top notch personalized service from the moment you step onto the deck of Nightwind. Booking is simple and easy you may book online or for a more person touch you can call and speak with Cathy to confirm your sail on Nightwind.

Large deck. Plenty of room to spread out. We had 6 adults and 6 kiddos ages 5 to 12. Boat is an older wooden boat which was cool. Built in 1955. Downside is the area below deck is not comfortable to hang out. Food was OK. Beer selection is sparse. Frozen drinks and top shelf liquor would have made it... More

I can not recommend this trip enough. Captain Rick and his son and first mate Wes were charming, fun and generous hosts. Our glasses were literally never empty and everyone was laughing, relaxing and having a great time. The snorkeling was phenomenal, Captain Rick took us to locations we would have never gone on our own to spots he knew... More

We were on a Celebrity Cruise December 2014 and choose this as a family day trip. There were 14 of us from ages 3 to 62 and it was perfect for all. The crew could not have been better! The trip was all about us...worth the time and money! Thanks Rick and Wes!

Perfect yacht,crew,food,and drinks. Great information and wonderful snorkeling sights! Rick and Wes couldn't be more accommodating in any way. They make you feel right at home and they do their best to make sure you have a good time. Well worth your time and money.

We are celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary and have our 5 year old along. This day was perfect from start to finish. Great hospitality, information about the history of the area, and unique stops chosen by Captain Rick based on the wind. We saw so many fish, sting rays, turtles, and sea urchins. The food and drinks were tasty.... More

We've been on a few "sail and snorkel" tours, but this has to be the best. We were greeted warmly to start and the hospitality never ended. The flow of great conversation and food and beverage never stopped all day long. Both of the snorkel stops offered a different environment. The food was certainly the best we had ever had... More
