We had such a great sail on the Winifred on February 24th, 2014! Captain Mike and Matt were awesome!! Mike was great with our 11 year old son, teaching him about the boat and showing him how to tie knots with the ropes. Matt was laid back, friendly, and I LOVED how he photo bombed one of our pictures! We... More

This was our third time sailing aboard Winifred, now under new management. Had a great time, as usual, did some real sailing in the winds, and a great day at Honeymoon Beach. Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary aboard. I highly recommend it! And Mom's Painkillers were perfect, as was lunch.

Captain Mike and Bridget are awesome! We had a great sail to Waterlemon Cay with our 2 little boys (ages 3 and 4). We were first timers sailing and loved every bit of it. We are coming back in June and can't wait to sail again. Lunch was really tasty and hit the spot after snorkeling around Waterlemon. Loved that... More

My friends and I had such a great time sailing on Winifred. Captain Mike and Bridget are the perfect hosts. They are professional, fun, and really go above and beyond to make sure everyone is having a great time, and we definitely did! Winifred also sails beautifully! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Thank you!

Captain Mike and his mate Bridget provided an amazing sailing experience. They make sure everyone aboard gets the experience they desire whether its learning the lingo or lounging on the deck. His expert seamanship and knowledge of the islands goes above and beyond what you would get on a big boat charter, individualizing the experience for all aboard. After a... More

having spent our honeymoon in St Thomas and a day on the Winifred 11 years ago, we were anxious to relive that. Captain Mike and first mate Josh knew great snorkeling spots that exceeded our expectation. The sailing was fabulous - the highlight of our week. We will definitely contact them again. They know the island and recommended some great... More

You really couldn’t ask for a more perfect day than what we had sailing Winifred this past month while in St. Thomas. Mike and Bridget were very professional while keeping things light and fun. Our 13 year old dubbed our day sail as the “best” day of our entire vacation. This is a day free of worries as they truly... More

We went and did several tourist things while in Saint Thomas (to which I do very few anyway) and this was by far the best time we had. I went with my boyfriend as a bday celebration and in the process we met up with 4 other great individuals on the boat to which we became friends and spent the... More

Our first trip on this neat boat, but third time sailing with the Morningstar crew over the last four years. Its sometimes difficult to repeat a near perfect adventure, but Mike and Josh were able to pull it off once again! We are locals who live in St. Thomas 6 months out of the year and have recommended this excursion... More
