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.

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

We had the coat to ourelves and had a great time from the continental breakfast, exciting sail across the bay and then snorkeling followed by a delicious lunch. Definately a great day full of memories made possible bythe excellent Captain and crew

Once again, Captain Rick and Wes, made this a memorable day. We have done this day sail and snorkel 3 times now and each time is different, which keeps the sailing and snorkeling so much fun. NOT a canned trip in any way. We try to get folks from the ship through Cruise Critic and that makes it even more... More

We spent a wonderful day in St. Thomas with Rick and Wes! We sailed on the beautiful Nightwind and snorkeled at two sites - finding both magnificent fish and thrilling sea turtles. Rick and Wes are terrific. They couldn't be nicer or more attentive, providing us with delicious food and bottomless beverages. Hands down, the best day of our vacation.... More

I was looking for a perfect day on the water for a group of friends/family... Rick & Wesley delivered! Beautiful boat, a perfect sail by many islands, 2 stops for snorkeling, the right amount of stories/history, & a great hosting job. When we all left St Thomas, this day was the most-mentioned as the best memory!

Went for a day sail with Rick & Wes and it was hands-down the best day of my trip. The crew were extremely friendly & accommodating and were happy point out landmarks and fill us in with a bit of history on our surroundings. The food provided was delicious (especially the pasta salad & deviled eggs), and Wes was constantly... More

Rick and Wes and the Carribean ocean...what else is there? If you are looking for a beautiful day on a quite boat with a dozen people to see the sights, have a beverage and get in the water, this is for you. The boat is beautiful, the food and drink good and plentiful and the company was outstanding. Our group... More

Our day sail was everything we had hoped for! Very friendly and professional crew. The "Christmas Winds" were cooperative - we had the rail in the water for much of the crossing from St. Thomas to St. John. We stopped to snorkel in three protected coves. The water was calm, clear, and warm. It was my first time attempt at... More
