I sailed last week with Liz and Justin on the Fly Girl. I was on a girls trip with friends of 40 years. We sailed to Jost and had a wonderful lunch at Soggy Dollar Bar. The Fly Girl was the perfect size! We all enjoyed riding on the trampoline in the front. But best of all...Our crew! Liz was... More

We sailed today with Justin and Liz on Dell Rose. What a great day! They were informative and shared history and tidbits as we sailed. Liz was great during the snorkel, taking time to make sure we were comfortable and pointing out fish and coral. Thanks for our best day yet!

My wife and I initially booked a half-day sailing with Sail Safaris. We loved it so much that we immediately booked another half-day. We had the pleasure to meet Captain Justin and his girlfriend/shipmate Liz. They were a great couple and very enjoyable company. What we loved about our trip was that the sailboat (Dell Rose) is not the typical... More

While we had a bit of difficulty finding the location (thanks, Google maps) once we connected with Justin to fill out our paperwork the zen of the experience set in. We collected the necessary snorkel gear and headed out to the Dell Rose in the harbor. On board we met Taylor and between the two our family of 4 was... More

This is our fifth trip with Sail Safari and each one is better than the one before. The owners/operators are so caring to make sure you have everything you need and give you a level of comfort unmatched! We have done the sail boat twice, the beach cats twice and this last time we did the Fly Girl (a mid-size... More

Had a great experience again (we used Sail Safaris two years ago)!! We did a full day sail around St John. Our captain Justin and first mate Taylor made it a great experience (and birthday!) by taking us to some incredible snorkel spots. We went to Henley Cay which was truly amazing, also to both the front and back sides... More

A day snorkeling and sailing out on the open sea is an amazing way to see the islands and was the highlight of our week on St John. The crew of the Dell Rose was terrific--friendly, fun, and competent. The boat is beautiful, the beers are cold, and the snorkeling spots you can hit on it are much better than... More

We sailed on the Fly Girl out to Jost Van Dyke yesterday and had an absolute blast! Capt. Justin and Taylor were great! They were very personable, courteous and kept our drinks full all day! We stopped off for some of the best snorkeling that we've done since we arrived. Then, they took us to Foxy's and White Bay, which... More

We planned a day sail a few weeks out. The day arrived and it was easy to find the office. Kelly met us along with her friendly dog and soon we were out to the boat via dingy. The two crew were friendly and fun. Helpful at each request and quick to get us drinks anytime. Megan (I think) was... More

This was my first time on a sailboat as opposed to a catamaran or speedboat, and I truly enjoyed the experience. My boyfriend and I booked a full day trip with another couple that was visiting St. John with us. We decided to go on water tour of the island so that we could see some snorkeling spots that we...
