Attraction details
Owner description: 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!

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

I can't think of a better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than by sailing, snorkeling and relaxing with Kim and Lance. They're very comfortable and at ease, treating guests as good friends out together for a day in the water. What differentiates this sail from others is that they snorkel with you, sharing in the experience of discovering whatever the water... More

This was our first time sailing and we had a great time. Kim and Lance are really friendly and perfect guides around the waters of Coral Bay. The meal and drinks were delicious! We let them know that we are vegetarians beforehand and they made sure we had plenty of great options. It was actually one of our favorite meals... More

Pepper, a day sail sloop, offers a relaxing but engrossing sail and snorkel experience fitting 6 guests along with hosts Lance and Kim. Lance is a professional photographer and a proficient sailor with his captains license. They are both environmentally conscious and their reverence for and knowledge of the island is impressive. We had a sail, went snorkeling in Round... More

Lance and Kim were great! So was Pepper!! My wife and I had a great time. Lance and Kim are such a beautiful pair and compliment one another so well. Lance is an experienced dive master and is very knowledgeable on the marine life. You'll love when he points out the "Christmas Tree" and the "Feather Duster"!! And Kim was... More
