I had never been to sailing or snorkeling, my dream was to get a picture swimming with a turtle, and got the most amazing photo. I had such an awesome day out on the water with Captain Rick and Wes. I learned so much about the Islands and the food and drinks were perfect. This was the highlight of my... More

Nightwind Charters was a lot of fun. Wes was hilarious and knew a ton about all the islands. We had some phenomenal snorkeling......we saw tons of fish, turtles and even a Barracuda we named Barry. I would cruise with them again!!! The only thing to note is that when you are sailing the boat really tips at an angle, so... More

Captain Rick and his son Wes are super friendly and knowledgeable, they made us feel right at home! They went above and beyond to make sure we had a fantastic experience. They listened to our interests and took us to the perfect spots. We saw lots of turtles and sting rays, beautiful fish and coral... it was absolutely amazing. The... More

Capt. Rick and his son, Wesley, were friendly, engaging and seem to really love what they do. They took very good care of us and all their customers with terrific food, amazing drinks (aplenty), and terrific stories of the islands and their history. The boat was beautiful, and very well kept. It's all in the details, and they cover them... More

Hands down, the best excursion I've ever been on. Captian Rick and Mate Wesley were friendly, knowlegible, and entertaining. Took us to Honnymoon Bay, in St John, and Christmas Cove, on a small island. Both spots had great snorkeling, and Wesley took us on a snorkeling tour. The food was good, and the drinks were never empty for long. Our... More

A beautiful boat on beautiful water with good food and great service from the captain and first mate. Very relaxing and good snorkeling with the opportunity to see sting rays and sea turtles and I actually got barracuda'd!

Booked with Night Wind after a couple of other places were booked up and I'm glad they were :) Not only do they offer competetive pricing, they also offer a discount if you pay in cash. I booked the day trip with my mother and two daughters ages 9 and 11. We had an amazing time with Captain Rick and... More

This is THE all-inclusive sailing excursion to take. I have no reservations saying that this has got to be the best sailing excursion available in all of the Caribbean. It was easily the best day of our entire week on the island. It's an incredible value considering the experience you have for the price. Captain Rick and Wes were --... More

Great sail with Capt Rick, Wes and Nightwind. Weather wasn't ideal, but Rick found great spots that avoided rain and other tours. Snorkeling was fun, with several turtles, rays, puffers, trumpetfish, etc. Plenty of great food and drink included. Tours are kept very small and personal service is very high. Really enjoyed sailing on Nightwind. Definitely enjoyed first time under... More
