We wanted to start our weekend visit to St Thomas with a harbor sunset sail to see the city and island from the water. The crew - Captain Taylor, Devin and Oliver - were friendly, organized and on time. We felt well taken care of from paperwork to embarkation, dinner to drinks. So glad we did this. We had a smaller guest load so that made viewing and seating not too crowded. Thanks Oliver’s Mom for reminding us to write reviews!!

Wow andieptx, we love hearing what an amazing time you had aboard The VI Cat. The crew are amazing to sail with and definitely make the experience personable and so much fun. We are so glad you decided to join us to start of your trip to St. Thomas. We definitely recommend checking out St. Thomas Water Sport's Kayak After Dark for a fun unique experience! We know you’ll love it just as much!

My wife and I booked this sunset dinner sail as part of our 15th Anniversary trip to St. Thomas. I would say it was definitely a great experience and well worth the money. Captain David, and the other two crew members, Katie and Lindsay, were all awesome, extremely friendly, and made it a great trip. Captain David's taste in music was awesome, and Katie and Lindsay handled dinner and drinks like pros. Dinner was delicious - Pita and hummus, Caesar salad, Rolls, BBQ shredded pork, Teriyaki grilled chicken, steak, Rice and beans, mac and cheese, and a full bar of sodas and alcohol. There was plenty of food; most passengers even went back for seconds with lots of leftovers. My only wish was that the cruise showed you more of the island. Prior to this cruise, we'd done a few cat cruises in Hawaii and other locations and they would usually sail out along the coastline or try to get you to an unobstructed sunset over the ocean. I was a little bummed that this cruise only really sails out around Water Island and then back through the Charlotte Amalie harbor; we were expecting to see a little more of the coast or to go all the way out to see the sunset over the ocean, but we stayed within the main harbor area for the most part where the sunset is behind the island. Still, it was a great experience with delicious food, and one of the best dinner experiences you can find on the island. We'd definitely do it again and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great romantic or evening activity on St. Thomas.

What an amazing experience taylerw2007! We are honored you joined us for you and your wife’s 15th anniversary for a beautiful sunset dinner sail. The captain and the crew are truly one of the best, they definitely ensure you have an incredible and memorable time. We are glad you enjoyed the food, the drinks and the music as well. The views of Charlotte Amalie harbor are truly a sight to see from the waters view when they are lit up. It was a pleasure to have you onboard The VI Cat for a beautiful evening around the Island and we hope to see you back again in the future. Take care.

This was one of the best experiences since we’ve been in St. Thomas. The boat itself is a large Catamaran named the VI Cat 🐱, which was really cool and spacious on the deck. The crew of 3 were amazingly attentive filling up non-stop Painkillers (staple drink of the VI), with other options available for your liking. The food was good BBQ Chicken, BBQ Pulled Pork, and Chili-Lime Beef with Cilantro Black beans and rice, Salad, and Pita/Hummus. The biggest value is the on the water experience once they drop the sail. You get a full tour of the Island of St. Thomas on the water with the sunset for the the best photos with a backdrop. Towards the end, you also get a great view of the starry sky away from the light pollution. Definitely will visit Cpt. Joe and his crew again on our next visit to St. Thomas.

Wow Dah1311, we cannot thank you enough for your review. It is amazing to hear that this was one of the best experiences you’ve had while in St. Thomas. The VI Cat is a spacious boat that allows enough room to be able to enjoy the cruise, the sunset views and the starry sky away from the islands lights. We truly have an amazing crew who are sure to never let your painkiller drinks go empty and are able to enjoy the food while on the tour around the island. It was a teaser to have you on board with us and we cannot wait to see you again when you return to St. Thomas. See you soon!

Typically a Sunset Cruise travels along the coast of the island so you can see all the beautiful resorts and natural sea coast. Well with this we ventured out to the Bay about 500 yds traveled about 400 YDS down the coast(end of Marriott Property) and then turned around and headed to the Harbor which I can see from my hotel room! The food/snacks were horrible. The carrot and Brocolli were served with a bottle of ranch dressing. The cheese and pepperoni were served on a platter and the Humus in a big bowl! All for the price of $65.00 per person. This crew was good but I have been on numerous Sunset Cruises and this was rated based on my past experiences at other islands.

Hi J2251UXbryans, thank you for sailing with us. Our sunset sail sail with appetizers and cocktails sails around the beautiful Charlotte Amalie harbor as the sun sinks behind the island landscape and into the water presenting a spectacularly lit mountain side for stunning evening views.

It was really nice, the dinner and drinks were lovely. The crew was fantastic. I do not appreciate how the company doesn’t pay their crew and they have to work via tips that the Captin has to then guilt trip the customers into giving the crew at the end of the tour. It left a sour taste in my mouth and was overall super annoying, these guys worked super hard and obviously deserved to get paid so why wasn’t my ticket just $20 more so they can make a real wage? It was shady, “tips appreciated” and working on tips are two very different concepts. Just pay these guys, they work super hard and why are you even betting on me having cash on a boat?

The Cat tour was the highlight of our trip. It left right from the Marriott Frenchman's cove dock. The crew was amazing and told stories about the boat, the surrounding area and served a great meal at the same time. Would definitely do it again.

We LOVED both trips we took! We did the snorkel trip to buck island with Captain Joe, Catie, and Mike & the dinner cruise with Captain Serena, John, and Christian. Everything was excellent. From before we got on the boat until after, you could tell they genuinely cared about ensuring everyone was having a great time. All on board amenities kept coming, they took the time to talk to every guest. We followed Mike on our snorkel and he took the time to point things out and show everyone. Catie, Christian, John, and Mike were very accommodating, and Joe/Serena spoke to us frequently as we were sitting towards the back and pointed things out to us to see. Overall, one of my favorite things we did in our week at St Thomas / St John and I would 100% do it over again!!

This is AMAZING Kbarnes06! It is a pleasure knowing you not only enjoyed one but two cruises with us aboard The VI Cat. Both crews are truly incredible and we are thrilled you got to experience your time on board with them. Mike is very knowledgeable and loves getting in the water to show you all about the under water sea life. Catie, Christian, and John love making sure our guests have a great time while Captain Joe and Serena are sure you never miss anything. We are so happy you chose to spend your time during your week with us on The VI Cat not once but twice! We would love to have you on board again. Until next time!

Pleasant evening and okay food, plenty of alcohol choices.

Departed and returned on time

Mixed crowd party boat atmosphere.

Severe weather occurred but the crew handled it well and the rain lasted after about 15 minutes but everyone got wet.

Over stated on the tipping aspect, just post a sign instead!

We (husband & myself) went on this dinner sail with my sister and her husband. It was lovely. We sat at the back of the catamaran and we weren't cramped. Dinner was really good. My B-I-L couldn't stop raving about it. BBQ, 3 types of meat, rice & beans, mac & cheese, salad, hummus w/ pita bread and carrots/celery, hawaiian rolls and fresh pineapple. It was good. Drinks were good and plentiful. Staff is very nice and accommodating. They really do serve you well. I went up to the bar once for a drink and each time after that someone came by with a pitcher of rum punch to fill me up. Very nice evening!

Please tip them on your way out. It's a dinner and floating bar, tip accordingly. We saw so many people just getting off the boat without tipping. For $65/pp it is really a good deal, you'd spend way more than this at a restaurant and most will have a mandatory 18% gratuity added. TIP THE CREW!

Sailed on 7/20/22 and did the sunset dinner cruise. Captain Serena made any questions about a rough ride disappear as it was smooth sailing- just a gentle rocking. Caleb was hard at work making the rum punch flow quickly. Mike tended to sails and mingled with people seeing everyone was happy and Lindsay was so cordial and professional. The food was veggies and dip, hummus, pita chips, salad, barbecue chicken, pulled pork, rolls and macaroni/ cheese. I would rebook with the Cat again without hesitation!
