“A "Must" excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Top experience in St Lucia. We started our stay at the Ladera Hotel (another recommended experience) then sailed to our next destination Cap Maison, Jus' Sail made the trip across the island an enjoyable experience. James and Pepsi were such hospitable hosts, offering great drinks, snacks, and even took some great pictures of us enjoying the relaxing sail. Well worth it, and definitely recommend Jus' Sail to anyone who really wants to taking in the beautiful views of the island!

Thanks Jus' Sail!

Dear Josh and Michele,
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review and we are always so happy to hear that our guests have a good time with us.
We loved having you aboard for your transfer between Ladera and Cap Maison, two of the island's top boutique hotels, so why not enjoy a boutique sailing experience to take you between the two!
Thanks again for choosing Jus' Sail and we hope to welcome you aboard once more in the future...
Best wishes.
The Jus' Sail Team.

“Best...Day...Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

So....not being a boat or water person, I really only agreed to go on the half-day sail because my husband and 8-year-old daughter really wanted to do so. As it turns out though, it was absolutely my FAVORITE thing we did while in St. Lucia! We had a delightful time -- I not only felt completely safe on the water, I was totally relaxed during the entire trip and was sorry we'd only booked a half of a day instead of a full-day sail!

James, Pepsi and Herbie were fantastic, the scenery was beautiful, the food was out of this world and the rum punch...well, let's just say it was the best on the island by a mile! If you're considering -- GO! Worth every penny and more, it's an experience you'll not forget. And did I mention I'm not a boat person? :)

Dear ACinNC,
Thank you very much for taking time out to write us a review! We are so happy to hear that you had such a great time with us and that you have a new found appreciation for sail boats, obviously, we're very proud of Good Expectation as a safe and welcoming vessel! We believe that sailing aboard a traditional Carriacou Sloop is one of the best ways possible to truly relax and soak up the beauty of the Caribbean, especially in a location as stunning as St Lucia!
So we look forward to welcoming you aboard again... for a FULL day next time!
With best wishes.
The Jus' Sail Crew.

“A fun day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Four of us had a very happy day out with James and Pepsi on 'Good Expectation' - a beautiful boat lovingly restored to a very high standard. We were so well looked after .. made comfortable .. well fed .. with an excellent view of the west coast of St. Lucia. We also enjoyed being shown local produce by Herbie who also made us very welcome. One of us took the helm and three of us enjoyed snorkelling in a beautiful deserted bay. We highly recommend this experience to others .... sailing is much the best way to enjoy the sea and the elements. Wonderful - thank you James and Pepsi. The Norfolk Group.

“Amazing Day With Jus' Sail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

If your looking for a laid back one of a kind excursion I would defiantly recommend Jus' Sail!
My husband and I loved our day at sea with Jus' Sail it was so relaxing. Such a great way to spend Valentines Day out on the water seeing the east coast of St. Lucia in a sail boat.
James and Pepsi worked with us so that we could make this day happen. The best part of the day was that Pepsi went out of her way to find me some DR PEPPER (which is really hard to find in the Caribbean). Now my husband would tell you the best part of the day was taking the helm.

Dear Blondiechic900, Thank you so much for your review, we had a great time with you aboard Good Expectation and the Dr Pepper was a nice addition to our ice box, we have discovered that its really good with our favourite local rum Chairman's Reserve... And it might become a staple!
Your hubby was a natural on the helm and we thoroughly enjoyed our sail together whilst you relaxed and enjoyed the view from the beanbags in the stern!
We hope to welcome you aboard again in the future.
Best wishes.
