If you came to St John, to avoid crowds and the cruise ship atmosphere then the Fly Girl is the excursion for you. She's a 27 ft catamaran that holds 6 passengers with two crew. The boat is parked on a beach and you wade into a foot or so of water and up a ladder onto the trampoline. If... More

We spent a day aboard the Dell Rose for the second year in a row. This was the one thing that our college-age daughter requested that we repeat from last year. Justin was once again our captain, with a new first mate this year, Taylor. We had some awesome sailing and snorkeling: three stops, including Christmas Cove and St. James... More

My husband and I had a fantastic day with Trey and Margaret! We were on the Del Rose for a full day of sailing near St. John. We had three times to snorkel at beautiful reefs. Our favorite was Christmas Cove with multiple turtles and even a spotted manta ray! We also loved the pizza boat there! It was a... More

During a St. John visit I spoke with 10+ operators to find what we were looking for an Sail Safari was perfect (and price was more than reasonable). Justin and Margaret took us on a sail to Jost Van Dyke with a swim and snorkel stop along the way. Very friendly and helpful with the BVI customs. Max capacity is... More

If you're looking for an alternative to a packed catamaran or powerboat trip then Sail Safaris is your company. I lived in the Virgin Islands and wanted my husband to experience Jost but not with 30+ other people around on a booze cruise. We were able to book a trip on the Dell Rose and it ended up being just... More

Justin and Greg were AMAZING on our 1/2 day sail. They were friendly and engaging and totally willing to make the sail whatever we wanted. Out 7-yr-old daughter had a great time - they were generous with the orange slices and patiently answered all of her many questions. We hit some great snorkeling spots and they gave us a ton...

One of the more pleasant activities on the island. We took a day sail on the Fly Girl. It is a seaworthy and comfortable catamaran. The crew was excellent. The food and drink was superb. My only regret if we could not have booked it twice.

the positive reviews are well deserved for family run business. To this experienced traveller, true colors come through when the unexpected happens. Sail Safaris prevailed even with a a failed engine. The crew of Trey and Taylor, calmly called some "audibles" to make sure our trip would safe, interesting , and fun. Getting "stuck" on a neat boat beside some... More

My husband and I spent the day sailing with Justin and Jessica. They were pleasant and fun to talk with. The fly girl is a comfy boat to stretch out on with a drink. Lunch was yummy. We snorkeled at two different stops. Justin pointed out what to look for, what to be cautious of, and so on. The atmosphere... More
