We had a wonderful day in St Thomas with the crew of the Nightwind. They did a fabulous job of taking care of us and making sure we were happy, comfortable and thirst-free! Our group had many different levels of experience with sailing boats and watersports, and all of our needs were met. And all of this was at a... More

A large group of us sailed on the NightWind back in May and it was the highlight of our trip! Captain Rick and Wesley were a blast and the areas they took us to were perfect for snorkeling...we even swam with a sea turtle! The food is prepared by Captain Rick and his wife and it was phenomenal! Wesley served... More

This was our third trip with Captain Rick but first for two couples who joined us on vacation. We had a great time. Found two wonderful snorkeling locations, each with abundant coral, fish and a few sea turtles to observe. Breakfast and lunch were great along with the rum punch. A great way to spend a day seeing the beauty... More

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

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
