Perfect. Everything was perfect, our captain Justin & first mate Taylor. They were both so knowledgeable and we all felt so safe. The sail was was amazing, covered a lot of area, stopped for lunch and snorkeling. Couldn't ask for anything more.

We've been sailing with Sail Safaris since Eric and his family took over a few years ago and it remains one of the things on our "must do on St John" list each year we go there. Their staff if professional but laid back and fun as well, and knows the local waters and snorkel stops very well. The Dell... More

We went on this sail trip with some friends and my sons. We had so much fun! We went to Soggy for lunch and sailed the rest of the time and was shown all the different islands and some history. Just a perfect day.

A day aboard the Dell Rose was just what us group of moms needed. The captain was totally open to our request of a chill day sailing across to Jost from St. John. They made sure we were comfortable and kept the drinks flowing. We didn't want the day to end.

My wife and I were exceptionally pleased with the cameraman instruction received by Taylor at Sail Safaris! The experience was the highlight of our trip to St. John, and we had done many other exciting things while there. We will return to sail again!

Our group of 4 adults and 4 kids (ages 4-9) were very much looking forward to our full day trip on the Del Rose for snorkeling and seeing the sights around St. John. The lady who originally set up our trip was very helpful and friendly over the phone. Once we got to the island, though, there were several communication... More

Tori So sorry your experience wasn't 100%. We apologize if we seemed hurried,we shouldn't have made you feel that way. We were just concerned your group wasn't going to have enough time on the water due to the difficulty of finding our shop & the fact your trip was already shorter than usual in order to accommodate your cruise ship...

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
