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

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!
