Sailed today, Dec. 21st & I cannot say enough glowing things about our day with Jason & Madison-it was absolute perfection! They are wonderful hosts, incredibly knowledgable about the area & sailing, but more importantly just super easy going to spend the day with. Do the FULL day-a half day is not enough! The snorkeling was awesome, the food was... More

Have been on 2 charters on Survivan during our stay on St John and plan to head out one more time before we depart. Jason is outstanding and first mate Madison is fabulous. We snorkeled on both trips and had great sailing on the first...too calm on the second. Over to Jost twice for a stop at Corsair, lunch at... More

We had a wonderful time sailing a few days ago throughout the USVI and BVI with Jason and Madison. Not only was the sail boat beautiful and spacious, the crew was first rate as well. We never had to lift a finger for anything. They were super friendly and very knowledgeable about the history of the islands and marine life.... More

My husband and I had an amazing day of sailing and snorkeling with the crew from St. John Charters. Jason is a very professional skipper and gracious host who led us to some beautiful snorkeling spots. Madison is the perfect first mate - her energy, enthusiasm and knowledge of the islands and sea life makes for a fun and educational... More

We chose St. John Yacht Charters based on the sailing options avaialble as well as the promptness in response to our questions. So glad we chose SJYC. Captain Jason was punctual on pick up and very knowledgeable about sailing and snorkeling. His first mate for the day, Morgan, was wonderful as she knew we were novice snorkelers and had lots...

We did a lot of research on excursions in St. John since it was our first visit to the Island. After speaking with Jason and hearing about all of our options, we decided to take a full day trip to Jost Van Dyke, BVI. This day trip was one of the highlights of our vacation. Jason was very organized and... More

The Survivan is a beautiful sailboat that took us on a half day snorkeling trip off of St John. It was great having the boat to ourselves! Very mellow trip. Included... More

With another older couple, we chartered Survivan on June 11, 2014, captained by Jason Carter. We could not have been more pleased with our experience. The boat was immaculate, the bimini provided plenty of shade, and safety was clearly important. In our 60s and 70s, we're not as agile as we once were, but entry into the water is easy... More

We took a full day trip to Jost Van Dyke with Jason at St. John Yacht Charters. We booked the trip thinking we were going to be with a group of others but we got lucky and had the boat all to ourselves! It was a great day for snorkeling, sailing and DRINKING! We had a lovely time. I surprised... More
