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

The crew; Captain Justin, CaptainTonia and first mateTaylor were wonderful and as others have noted; professional and laid back. We were glad we booked the Jost all day sailing adventure. Was able to hang out on the island for 2 hours where we ate lunch, swam and bought some cool t-shirts at Soggy Bottom. Loved the sailing. Such a beautiful... More

If you are looking for an experienced crew, look no further. Sail Safaris delivers in every possible way. Captain Justin is very knowledgeable, courteous and just plain fun!

Sail Safaris should not be trusted. They strung us along for three days saying they could take us out for a Hobie cat daysail the following day but they would cancel the evening prior. It nearly cost us the opportunity to sail while in the Virgin Islands. Luckily we were able to find Nightwinds out of Sapphire Beach on St... More

Sorry we weren't able to accommodate you. Glad you were able to find something on St. Thomas. We aren't always able to always accommodate guests without reservations and we need to line up crew with fair notice. The reservation requests we received from you were late at night and weren't checked until morning, not giving us adequate time to line... More
