My husband and I had the pleasure of sailing with Captain Phil, his wife Allison, and first mate Tarn this past Friday. The trip began at 8 am in Cruz Bay and included a snorkeling stop and lunch at Foxys on Jost Van Dyke, returning to Cruz Bay around 4:30. By chance, we were the only people who had booked... More

My wife and I booked a day sail with captain Phil and Tarn. In a day and age when sailing has become big business: one filled with fancy boats and rookie sailors, I was excited to hear and see that we were set to sail with a man with 46 years on the water. Captain Phil is a throwback for... More

We enjoyed our snorkel/sail with Captain Phil. He is a very nice guy with a lot of stories to tell. If you're looking for a new place or additional snorkeling - this is for you! You can't access this island without a boat.

Captain Phil is a local legend and for good reason! He's been sailing and diving for the better part of a half-century and has forgotten more than most of us will ever know about the ocean. We spent a wonderful day with him, his great first mate, Dorn, and four other guests on his 30 foot sailboat. He to us... More

We spent a great day sailing with Captain Phil and Tarn aboard the Wayward Sailor. We snorkeled on reefs offshore from St. John on one of the nearby cays. We saw a variety of tropical fish, eagle rays, and even a shy flounder hiding on one of the rocks of the reef. The crew took good care of us and... More

Captain Phil and Tarn are such patient professionals, it was easy to relax on my first snorkel, even though my heart was beating out of my chest! Having Captain Phil next to me in the water was very reassuring, as he pointed out the different fish and features of the sea life below. My husband enjoyed staying on board and... More

Captain Phil was very knowledgeable, and loved sharing his love of the ocean and its creatures. The boat was very basic, with minimal accommodations. Lunch was not fancy, but good. Take plenty of sunscreen. We thought we did, but still all got sunburned!

Six of us had a wonderful day sailing and snorkeling with Capt. Phil and Tarn. Lunch at Foxy's was good and Foxy was very entertaining! Phil and Tarn took excellent care of every detail! Very relaxing! Hope to go again on another trip soon!

Captain Phil and his mate are a fantastic pair. They are courteous and extremely accommodating. His sail boat can take a maximum of six passengers, so the trip is very small and intimate. Captain Phil is an active naturist and knows where the best snorkel spots are in the Virgin Islands. He also married us on our trip to the... More

I enjoyed meeting Capt Phil and Tarn. We took us to some cool spots to snorkel and we got to see a lot of sea life that we hadn't yet seen on our trip. The lunch was great and Tarn served us hand and foot. As experienced sailors, I felt like we were treated like children (note: we range in... More
