What a great way to spend a day in the Islands! Went out for the day with my wife and daughter and her partner on the Jost Van Dyke route aboard Survivan. After an exciting run through a squall (very competent Captain and First Mate!) we had some great snorkeling time and then a serene run up to JVD, where... More

Had a fun sailing trip with Justin and Madison last week. They were very accommodating and took us to 2 nice snorkel spots with a good lunch in between. Would recommend for anyone's vacation

As veteran sailors our Survivan experience was great. One of the best to be honest. The boat has plenty of room both cock pit and decking. No issues at all of having 6 guests. Boat is very clean, comfortable and handles the waves well. Captain Justin and crew were very knowledgable and experienced in the history of the area. Young... More

It does not get any better than taking out this gorgeous sailboat with the friendliest and most knowledgeable crew in the USVI. If you're looking to hit the best snorkel spots, sail around the BVIs, and enjoy some laughs with a generous open bar (all for an incredibly reasonable price), then Survivan is the obvious choice.

There were so many charters to choose from but we are thrilled we picked St. John Yacht Charters on the Survivan. Reason #1 Justin and Madison were incredible. They were personable and informative all while being super professional and all about safety. Reason #2 the boat was beautiful. It was private and not a crazy crowded group. Reason #3. The... More

Thank to dive off the side of a 46 foot monohull sailboat into warm blue Carribean waters. I am 46 years old and spent my childhood sailing a 42 ft pearson monohull around New York Harbor and the Long Island sound. I went on extended trips to Nantucket and Bermuda. Captain Justin and mate Madison were first rate. They immediately... More

the day we spent on Survivan was the highlight of our vacation on St. John! Justin met us in Cruz Bay with a smile...and upon climbing onboard, Madison was so happy to see our group. We first met the crew of Survivan last year and the repeat trip was just as spectacular. Justin and Madison helped everyone with snorkel gear.... More

Justin and Madison did a great job! We went on sunset trip around the islands. The weather was great. There was not a ton of wind so we had to motor, but we would much rather do that than sit around waiting for wind! We were able to cruise around several islands sipping on Madison's delicious painkillers (better than the... More

What a fantastic sail to the BVIs!!! We booked the trip for just the 4 of us with Justin and Madison. They were great ... very energetic, fun, engaging, knowledgeable about the islands, highly conscious of what we'd like to do and just a likeable captain and first mate. The boat was really cool with plenty of room and good... More

We tried last year and had a great time. We booked the boat to ourselves and did the Jost Van Dyke and snorkel trip. We had such a great time we booked a 'Local Islands' trip for later in the week. Madison is still first mate and Justin did a great job as El Capitan. Jason has left for the... More
