We booked the full day sail and snorkel for 4 adults, and it was worth every penny! Even though our ship docked late (medical emergency), Captain Ron was patiently waiting for us in Red Hook and picked the best snorkeling spot. We also got a delicious lunch, snacks and drinks. Carol is a delightful hostess, Captain Ron the chef, and... More

We chartered the Alaunt for a half-day snorkeling cruise, and it turned out to be the best morning of our vacation. There were six of us, my three kids (13, 11 and 8), and three adults. Originally, we were thinking a ferry and day trip to St. John. Like a bolt of inspiration, I decided to book us a half-day... More

We were the only couple that booked a sailing trip that day and we really had a celebrity treatment. Captain Ron and his wife (and first mate) Carol were very professional and very friendly. We are not great swimmers or into snorkling that much, and they understood this and customized the trip to our taste. This was a very smooth... More

They take a maximum of 6 per sail and we had 3 couples in our group - perfect! Captain Ron met us behind Fish Tails in Red Hook and taxied us out to their comfortable sail boat. We easily arranged ourselves comfortably as Captain Ron & Carol raised sails and we travelled easily to St. John. While en route, Carol... More

We actually ended up doing this day sail by fortunate circumstances. I'd originally booked a day sail aboard Nightwind but on the day we arrived in St. Thomas we learned that Nightwind had a mechanical problem. Our charter had been handed off to Captain Ron and his beautiful yacht. I'm sure my original charter would have been great but it... More

We had a wonderful day of sailing aboard Ron and Carol's gorgeous sailboat. Although the boat is quite spacious, they only book up to 6 passengers which provides a very intimate experience. We had the good fortune of enjoying a private charter on our particular day which was amazing. Ron and Carol share a vast knowledge of the islands' history... More

My wife and I cruise every year and we took this charter two years ago. We just got our confirmation for January and are so excited to go on this fabulous boat for another day sail. The Captain (Ron) and his first mate (Carol) are first class people. Ron did everything right in terms of giving us a safe fun... More

Would highly recommend chartering this rare Gallant 53" sailboat for a day sail. Captain Ron and Carol are a pleasure to know and so informative on the history of the Virgin Islands. We left St. Thomas, sailed in between the St. James Islands(private) to Christmas Bay and had the most incredible snorkeling experience. Great to sail with them

Four of us booked a charter on Feb. 5 with Ron and Carol and at the end of the trip, we asked how much more it would cost if we could just stay on their boat and sail on up to Half Moon Cay to meet our cruise ship there. The St. Thomas to St. John sailing/snorkeling excursion with Ron... More

We booked a half day sail and snorkel with Ron & Carol on the Alaunt after the sailing trip we were planning fell through. Carol was so accommodating in helping us to make all our arrangements! We took a cab from the main shopping area in Charlotte Amalie for $10pp to the Red Hook Harbor. We had time for a... More
