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.

Captain Rick and First Mate Deb are the best! Great day of sailing, food and beverages. They were especially good with our young granddaughters (8 and 10) to ensure snorkeling gear fit properly, and that they had a great time. Food presentation was beautiful and tasty. Good memories for our family!

Rick and Deb were excellent! They put on a great spread, demonstrated real knowledge of the area (both historical and current), made our first time sailing a lot of fun! The snorkeling was great! This was our third time snorkeling and the best underwater views! We liked the small group setting of the sailboat, plus the great feeling of sailing.... More

This was a highlight of our trip to St. Thomas. Our extended family of 13 spent an amazing day with Captain Rick and his crew. The snorkeling was great, the food and drinks delicious, and Captain Rick was very entertaining. I highly, highly recommend this experience!!!!

Our sailing and snorkeling adventure on Nightwind was truly the highlight of our vacation in the Caribbean. My wife and daughter had never been on a sailing vessel before. Captain Rick and First Mate Deb made the adventure fun, safe, and very interesting. Captain Rick has a fantastic way with people and knows just how to put everyone at ease... More

If you want to make your vacation the #1 top rated adventure, then book with Nightwind. You will not be disappointed. Rick and his crew mate Deb was absolutely amazing. They severed us a wonderful breakfast before we sailed. Drinks of all kinds were available through out the whole trip. Deb was so knowledgeable about the different island and sea... More

Captain Rick and Deb are seriously the best! I think this has got to be one of the best chartered snorkeling trips I have ever done in my life. These guys really are some experts. If you can, do the full day trip. You start off with a light breakfast then have drinks (alcoholic if you want) all day until... More

I can not say enough good things about this charter! Everything about this trip was top notch and first class! Captain Rick and Deb are fabulous hosts. Our group of 10 (4 adults and 6 kids ranging in ages from 4-11) wanted for nothing. The food was wonderful, the drinks plentiful, and the snorkeling was beautiful. They had age appropriate... More

Capt. Rick and Deb were fantastic hosts. The wife and I had a great day sailing, snorkeling, and enjoying the Islands. If you want to truly sail, and not just motor around on a catamaran with 50 of your closest friends, the Nightwind is for you. Rick took us to some fantastic reefs with great corals, fish and wildlife. I... More

Deb his mate was also fantastic they do everything to make sure your voyage if filled with... More
