In 1998, Pepper was built right here on St John to introduce guests to sailing "Island Style" on a traditional vessel. With only a small back-up engine and no winches, Pepper is pure sailing and fun. Her spacious cockpit gives ample room for passengers, stowage for snorkeling gear, and of course, plenty of room for Kims fabulous lunches. Let Lance and Kim show you the little traveled east end of St. John, and learn a little about the history of this Caribbean gem. Sailing most days and evenings from Coral Bay, right behind Skinny Legs. Sail Pepper is a family friendly day excursion charter. Bring the whole family!. Please call us directly for additional information, or to book your trip!

For the second time..... Sail Pepper owners Kim and Lance took us on a wonderful tour of the Coral Bay area in their authentic Caribbean sloop. Another great adventure! Highly recommended for anyone interested in local history and environmental awareness, it doesn't get any better than this.

Lance and Kim are the perfect hosts and the Pepper is an intimate and elegant craft on which to spend a day. Our experience was like a back yard get together, but on a boat: relaxing and chatting, enjoying the views, ultimately followed by snorkeling instead of horseshoes. Lance guided us through the various marine wildlife, showing us a sea... More

Kim and Lance were wonderful hosts. Their boat was pristinely kept, the day was perfect, the snorkeling was great and the lunch that Kim provided (rum punch included if you like) was healthy, delicious and bountiful! A completely perfect 1/2 day adventure. Don't hesitate ... GO! xo's

Great low key way to get on and into the water. Comes with a simple but tasty lunch, heavy on the vegetables (which was great since they are hard to come by on St. John).

We just returned from two magical weeks in St. John, but our day spent with Lance and Kim on the Pepper was without a doubt one of the highlights of our trip. My husband, two college-age sons, and I sailed off from Coral Bay Harbor with Lance and Kim in the morning, and spent the rest of the day wrapped... More

Sailing with Lance and Kim aboard Pepper with our 2 teen daughters was a day to remember. The sail was peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed an amazing guided snorkel off a remote beach and a tasty lunch on the boat. Lance and Kim are super easy to talk to and make you feel at ease right away! Whether you sail... More

Sailing on the "Pepper" was a beautiful way to see areas of St. John that you would not typically see on land. Sailing out of Coral Bay and venturing over to Hanson Bay to the fantastic snorkeling spot at Pelican Rock was AMAZING! Lance and his 1st mate Matt pointed out so many interesting facts about the island. Pepper is... More

If you had been on the Pepper with Fred and Renee and were a little nervous about the change in ownership, worry no more. Lance and Kim are great. We had a fantastic day sail with guided snorkeling at Pelican Rock. When we came in from snorkeling, Kim had prepared a filling and delicious lunch and drinks. This is a... More

This was my first trip to St. John and I'm glad I chose Lance and Kim for my day sail intro to coral bay. It was a friendly, relaxing, low impact sail to the secluded coves of Hurricane Hole, where the calm seas and clear water ensured a fantastic afternoon of swimming and snorkeling in pristine reefs and mangroves. Lance... More

We had a great time on a day sail with Lance and Kim! They were very knowledgable and friendly. The guided snorkel at Pelican Rock was awesome! Lance pointed out a lot of things (including an octopus) that we never would have noticed. The trip was especially fun because they are both clearly excited about the area and the marine... More
