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...

We had an absolutely perfect day today on Fly Girl with Justin and Liz!! It was a little rough on the water over the past couple of days but Justin knew just where to take us so that we were under sail for the majority of the trip and had the perfect secluded spots for snorkeling and swimming! Lunch was... More

This was our second time sailing with the folks at Sail Safaris, and once again, it was fantastic. Previously, we had sailed on the Fly Girl but this time chose the Dell Rose, which was bigger but just as fun. Justin is a great captain, very engaging and funny. And Margaret's Painkillers were perfect. I'd highly recommend island hopping with... More

The captain and crew were great. The sailing trip to Jost Van Dyke was a wonderful experience. The Pain Killers were delicious. Would do this again with this company in a heart beat. Thanks to Kelly for helping us out before we boarded and big thanks to our captain and crew.

We were looking for a great sailing excursion for our family of four, and we DEFINITELY found it with Sail Safaris! This is a family-run business (which we LOVE), and the service was personalized and professional. Trey was a great captain, and Ryan was a perfect mate. Both guys took care of us and they showed us a wonderful time... More

My husband and I recently had a great experience on a day sail with Sail Safaris out of Cruz Bay. We sailed with 2 other couples to Jost Van Dyke. The owners, Eric and Kelly were very friendly and tried to do all they could to accommodate everyones wishes. I would highly recommend this company if you are looking for... More

We had a wonderful experience with Sail Safaris! We booked the Dell Rose day trip that took us to Jost and we enjoyed every relaxing minute. Our Captain was super laid back and very knowledgeable. We loved the snorkel stop on our way to Jost (we saw a baby sea turtle that the Captain directed us toward) and lunch/drinks at... More

My husband and I recently honeymooned in St. Thomas. We found this company off a trip advisor review and were not disappointed. We spent the day on Fly Girl, a small catamaran, with one other couple, sailing to multiple remote beaches and snorkeling. The staff was great, the boat was a lot of fun, and it was definitely one of... More
