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.

We really enjoy sailing on the Nightwind. We have done at least one sail with Rick every year we are in the islands. This year, we had the privilege of sailing five different trips in all kinds of weather - sun and light winds, heavy winds, rain, and even a perfect sailing day. And, yes, we sail. With all four...

We chose the Nightwind excursion while we were sailing on the Jewel of the Seas. They were accommodating in helping us arrange taxi transportation to and from the cruise terminal. We typically choose catamaran trips while in port and this was our first sailing excursion. The taxi ride to the marina was short and uneventful. The trip with Captain Rick... More

What a wonderful day on the Yacht Nightwind! Captain Rick and first mate Deb were terrific hosts. Our glasses were never empty and the food was delicious. Snorkeling in deep water was great -- we went to two spot -- both unique and very beautiful. Was the highlight of our vacation! Thanks Rick and Deb!

You must take this day sail - it is the best deal going! Light pastries before you sail, beautifully prepared and delicious lunch, wonderful crew and very safe snorkeling areas. If you want to do a day sail, this is the company to book with! Loved our day with Rick and Wesley!

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

Captain Rick and first mate Wes took us on a private day sail around St John. This is my third trip on The Nightwind which speaks to the incredible day they have planned for you. The food is delicious and the drinks are ever-flowing! This is a great sail if you have a larger group because this is a bigger... 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!
