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 Tuesdays and Wednesdays for day trips and sunsets 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!

We had a great time sailing with Lance and Kim. The scenery was amazing. Our hosts were very knowledgable about the history of the island as well as the ocean life. We sailed to Pelican rock for an amazing snorkeling experience and Kim's lunch was delicious!

We stayed in Cruz Bay and easily drove to Coral Bay for the sail. Lance and Kim helped me plan out a romantic,surprise proposal to my boyfriend a few weeks in advance. They were excellent in communicating ahead of time with me about the logistics. I rented the sunset sail for just the two of us for a very reasonable... More

My boyfriend an I did a full day sail with Lance and Kim. We were staying in Coral Bay and it was so great to go right from there and not have to haul over to Cruz Bay to get out on the water. We took our sail on our second full day on the island - this was really... More

We went sailing with Lance and Kim earlier this month. We had a fabulous sail with them. Lance picked us up from the dock behind Skinny Leg's promptly and our fun began. I loved that the boat was small enough that just our group of two couples got to enjoy the trip. The sail boat would have comfortably held six... More

Lance and Kim are wonderful hosts and their boat is beautiful. My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon sailing and snorkeling. Both Lance and Kim are extremely welcoming to sharing their knowledge of St. John and all things related. In addition to learning a bit more about sailing and their vessel, we appreciated their recommendations for restaurants and things... More

Four of us went out on a full day sail with Captain Lance and First Mate Kim on the Pepper. The next day we were back for the sunset sail, and both were outstanding! Captain Lance came to get us from the dock behind Skinnylegs right on time and took us out to Pepper where Kim was waiting. We sailed... More

Literally just came back 5min ago from a day sail on Sail Pepper, and i never wrote a review anywhere, but it would be disservice if i did not let the world know what a great trip it was. We had the boat to ourselves and Lance and Kim were just amazing. Snorkel: We don't know how to swim, but... More

What a great time we had! Lance & Kim know how to show you the best of the best. The Snorkeling @ Pelican Rock was the best we saw on St. John. We snorkeled many places but Lance's knowledge & care for details is very evident to make us all in awe. The lunch was better than the pictures show,... More

Thanks to Kim and Lance for a perfectly lovely day on the water! Deliciously flavorful food, with special consideration for our vegetarian family members, was prepared by Kim. The rum libations were a welcome addition to our picnic on the water. We had a wonderful snorkeling experience and learned so much about the creatures and terrain below, unmatched by our... More
