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.

This excursion was really awesome! Captain Rick and crew member Deb were so great! I have never been sailing before and was nervous, but they made me feel very comfortable and welcomed. The food and drinks were great and plentiful. We went snorkeling in a few different spots and got to see some beautiful sights. I got to touch a... More

Want to be sure your safe & dealing with a skilled crew and inspected boat; this is the boat for you... We had a great experience with our group of 7. This is a sailing and snorkeling excursion where you actually SAIL (not motor) around the island. Rick seemed to make a distinct effort to motor around as little as... More

My wife and I have taken many different charters at various vacation locations and Capt Rick and Deb are by far the best ever! I never write reviews since I generally don't trust "who" is giving the feedback but this once, I'm breaking my rule. Capt Rick and Deb are awesome people, made everyone feel welcomed and truly wanted everyone... More

We stayed on St. Thomas for a week this was one of our last days on the island. It was by far the best day of the entire vacation. The captain and crew were incredibly nice. The food they provided was delicious and filling, the drinks (at no extra cost) were fantastic, and the cake they brought out made for... More

On June 16th, 2015 we booked a day sail with Capt. Rick and this was our third sail with him. Fantastic sail and snorkeling, great crew. If you are fortunate enough to be in the Virgin Islands head over to St. Thomas and book a sail on the Nightwind, you cannot go wrong and this will be a highlight of... More

Our day on the Nightwind sailing and snorkeling was the best day of our vacation. We would absolutely recommend sailing with Rick and Deb! The food was great, the scenery was beautiful, the snorkeling was unbelievable. It was a day we will not soon forget!

Booked with Nightwind on a recent trip to St Thomas for my birthday. From the booking process all the way through the day out it was flawless! You start at the dock with a continental breakfast and great boat drinks ( rum punch was my personal favorite) then you are off! Next you will actually sail across to St John... More

What a great day. Perfect weather, perfect water, perfect crew. Rick and Deb are super. Couldn't have had a better boat to spend the day sailing and snorkeling.

The Nightwind is a larger sail boat and there is not an issue of overcrowding that we have had before. Captain Rick and Deb took us on a day sail with 3 different stops including St. John's Honeymoon Beach and two stops at Little St. James. They made sure we saw all there is to see on trip including tons... More
