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

We booked a five hour sail on Christmas Day with Sail Safari. We headed out on the Del Rose with Eric and Trey and it was a really good time. Our whole group was happy and treated very well. The boat was nice and comfortable for everyone. Eric and Trey really made our day special. My daughter loves eating sea... More

Took a Fly Girls (Sail Safaris) snorkeling trip a couple of weeks ago. Captain Justin and Mate Sophie were of fun and full of personality. But this trip was way over-priced ($280 for two people, about 5 hours). The boat was dinky, no head, tight seating with 6 people. We snorkeled at three spots (Henley Cay, Mermaid's Chair, one other... More

Yesterday we spent a day snorkeling and sailing among the beautiful islands of the USVI. Eric and Trey, father and son captain and first mate, we're gracious, engaging, knowledgeable and dedicated to both our enjoyment and safety. It was a memorable day for us, our two sons and their fiancé and girlfriend. Little St. James, Christmas Cove, Levongo and environs,... More
