      Great day sailing in St John
      We spent the day on Morning star sailboat going to two different snorkeling places with our 3 kids (8,11,14). The captain was a great host and very kind. He taught each of our children how to sail the boat. The catered food from the deli was a hit and the drinks on board were delicious. We’ll be coming back 😊

      Great charter- best day! Would highly recommend!
      We had such a great experience with Captain Mike and crew. We are a family of 4 with two younger kids (5,8) and they couldn’t have been nicer with us. My kids wanted to swim with turtles so they took us to a great spot - we made a few stops along the way to get the most out of our charter and it was one of our favorite days on St. John. They were super friendly and knowledgeable - I would highly recommend and go back.

      Best Sailing Trip Ever!!
      One of our best sailing trips ever. Captain Mike is not just an experienced, safe boat captain but such a wonderful guy... our group had a fabulous day on the ocean- he tailors the trip to what you want to do- snorkel, cruise, whatever. We will definitely come back to St John and repeat this sailing experience.

      All Around Wonderful Experience!
      I was urgently looking for a "surprise" private sail for a friend and her boyfriend who were vacationing on St. John. She had been going through some difficult times in her life and knew she would just love this...and she did! I wrote Morningstar on Wednesday, by Thursday, the next day, I had it booked. Thursday being Thanksgiving. Mike was so kind, helpful, sincere and just wonderful to work with. While I was not in St. John myself, but thousands of miles away, he seemed like he was there next to me plaining the whole thing. The best review I could give was getting some pictures from my friend on the sail, with a smile as big as the sun. First time I had seen a smile like that on her face in a long time. She also made mention of how wonderful the crew was! If you are looking to do a sail, private or otherwise, please call Morningstar Charters, you won't be disappointed!

      Amazing sailing excursion!!
      Mike was the BEST captain. He is very knowledgeable about the island and knows all the best snorkel spots! He was very accommodating and made sure our comfort and safety came first! Will definitely do a tour with Morningstar charters when we come back. Definitely suggest this trip for anyone who loves to be on the water!

      Great day!
      We had a great experience with Captain Mike and his nephew Beau. We spent the day on his power catamaran exploring the beaches around St. John. He picked us up at our resort, which was so convenient. He knows the area well and taught us so much about the history of the USVI. Even some stormy weather didn’t taint our day at all! We snorkeled with sea turtles, picked up lunch at Pizza Pi, and saw some amazing beaches. His nephew was a great bar tender. You cannot go wrong booking a trip with Captain Mike!

      One of our best life experiences
      My wife and I went sailing with Captain Michael and have to say it was one of the best experiences of our life. This was our first trip to St. John so we weren’t sure how to experience it. Michael was courteous and informative. We were curious to better understand sailing and he walked us through the basics. He will let you get as involved as you want or you can just relax and enjoy the views.. He took us to some amazing snorkeling sights where we saw an abundant amount of marine life including turtles, mana rays and several types of fish. The beaches were very private and some were only accessible by water. We had very cold beer and were able to sample Captain Mike’s version of the Pain Killer and a refreshing lime and coconut rum drink…and did i mention the beer was ice cold!? We had a wonderful lunch from a local deli. All in all it was a perfect day. Not only did we get to see St. John from a new perspective but we also made a new friend. We would highly recommend the Morningstar and Captain Mike and will certainly book this trip again when we return to St. John.

      Beautiful Sunset Sailing
      This was our second sunset sail with Captain Mike. My two boys loved it so much. Mike spent time with them showing how the boat worked, let them sail, and engaged in their curiosity. The views were beautiful and Mike is great company. Thank you Captain Mike for a great evening out on the water. We will be in touch next time we are in St John.

      Best sailing experience!
      A great sailing experience! Mike is a skilled, personable and very knowledgeable Captain. The boat itself is a joy to experience for folks who love to sail. No hydraulics here. My sister took advantage of the opportunity to brush up on her own sailing skills with excellent instruction from Mike. The trip around the keys and waters surrounding St. John was spectacular, as was the sunset and Mike was a wonderful host!

      Beautiful sail and great hospitality
      We’ve sailed with Captain Mike and Morningstar three years in a row. What an incredible experience! Mike is professional, friendly, and the consummate host and captain! We visited some beautiful beaches and amazing snorkeling around the island of St. John. We’ll charter with him next time we visit!

      Fun day of real sailing and snorkeling.
      We went on a 5 hour sail and snorkel with Captain Mike. This is the real deal if you enjoy sailing and snorkeling. Captain Mike will treat you the way you want to be treated. He is very knowledgeable and truly a pleasure to be around. I like to sail and he let me handle many of the sailing tasks-all fun. He took us to two snorkeling locations we hadn’t yet experienced after he asked us where we had been. The lunch was tasty too. We will check in with him again next time we are in St John.

      Best day of vacay!
      Our day with Morningstar was amazing! Captain Michael spent his day making sure we got in all the fun and stops we wanted, the boat was stocked with all the amenities, he went out of the way to play the music we requested, and he was beyond knowledgeable about St. John, as well as so kind and courteous! I will be using Morningatar again and recommending to all my island friends!

      A beautiful day on the water
      Morningstar was the best day charter we have been on to date! Captain Mike and Bridget were so easygoing and flexible with what we wanting to do for the day so we were able to do a ton of fun things! I can't wait for the next time I am able to go out with them!

      The Best Day With The Best Captain!
      We had a wonderful, memorable day with Captain Mike on his boat sailing around St. John. We had been recommended thru mutual friends and decided to spend the day in St John while visiting on the Symphony of the Seas in December of 2022. From our very first communication, Mike was attentive, professional and kind. He has a lot of heart and warmth, which really added to our adventure! He even tried to retrieve my sun hat that flew off my head and fell into the water, but it was a lost cause. I thought that was really sweet. We had a bit of anxiety with leaving our cruise ship and the time difference, (not because of Mike but because of the ferry and taxis and making sure we got our ride home) but Mike was very reassuring that it would all work out. And he was right! :) He got us back to our ferry on time as planned and we arrived back to our ship with more than enough time. Mike provided yummy sandwiches and the best pain killers we had on our trip! They were seriously delicious! Mike provided the snorkeling gear and took us to two different bays to do some snorkeling. I would definitely recommend Morning Star Charters if you're in USVI! Thank you Captain Mike for a wonderful, memorable experience!

      Memorable day with Capt. Mike
      What a great day we had with Capt. Mike! Not only is he an excellent sailor he is a wonderful host. We were a party of 2 couples and had all been to STJ before. After making sure we were familiar with the boat and offering drinks & snacks he set out. As others have mentioned, Mike is a very good conversationalist so we immediately felt comfortable and relaxed. The weather that day was overcast & windy and the sailing was terrific. We stopped at Mary Point for some snorkeling and then returned to the boat for lunch, sandwiches from North Shore deli - a favorite of ours prior to this trip. They tasted delicious as we sat out a rain squall inside the boat. The rain soon cleared up and we headed over to Francis Bay where we snorkeled again this time with some sea turtles. The day was a highlight of what was a wonderful week on our favorite island. Oh, if you go (and you should) make sure to try Mike's signature painkiller, it will make you forget all your cares.

    My wife and I took our daughter (age 22) and two of her friends for a private evening sunset sail on this monohull sailboat. The booking experience was easy, pickup and drop off were timely, and the captain was engaging and friendly. The young adults had a great time taking pics and my wife and I just enjoyed the water, breeze, and sunset views. Captain Mike’s rum punch was excellent as well! This was a relaxing way to end a day in the islands before dinner. Very much recommended.

    Capt Mike was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the island and sailing. He provided drinks, snacks and tunes for the four of us... a very relaxing and fun evening as we capped it off watching the sunset! I even tried my hand at sailing! Mike had told some very fun and detailed stories from his sailing days...not to mention he's a fellow Ohio boy! Definitely recommend Capt Mike's charters for an enjoyable and relaxing time!

    The sunset sail with Captain Mike was the highlight of our trip to St. John. Him and his wife went over the top in accommodating us and making our evening extremely special. Captain Mike seemed like an old friend even though we had never met and always ensured we were comfortable. His specialty drinks were delicious. His knowledge of the island was fascinating.

    We had an absolute blast with Captain Mike. I can’t recommend booking a sail with him enough!!! We can’t wait to come back and sail with him again soon

    My husband and I sailed thee times with Mike and Bridget of Morningstar Sailing during our week on St. John. Mike started communicating with us about our day sail
    before we left for our trip. Mike, Bridget, and their son made us feel safe and welcome. Mike explained safety procedures at the beginning of the sail. They are very experienced at making sure the guests feel safe, welcome, and have a good time. Mike is very familiar with the waters around St. John and can tell you where to go to find a certain kind of sea life. He has all the snorkelling equipment on board. He also served us delicious food, water and mixed drinks. I am looking forward to sailing with Mike, Bridget and their son again in the future.

    We’ve been to St. John numerous times but we’ve never experienced USVI like this.. Mike was GREAT and he made sure we had the greatest time. We got to drive the sailboat and he made us the best drinks. The vanilla killa and lime in the coconut were honestly two of the best drinks I’ve had in my life. Even if you do not like to drink, the views and experience is one of the best you could have. He takes you to places you can’t go to by land and provides noodles and snorkeling equipment, we got to see stingrays and other salt life animals. My parents are 65 & 64 and he was so gentle and reassuring, my mother was very nervous to get in the water but he made sure that she had the best experience. I would recommend this 20 times out of 10. My in laws have been all over the Caribbean and never experienced a tour like this. When we come back for an extended stay, we’ll absolutely do this again.

    We booked a private sunset sail with Morningstar and it was the highlight of our honeymoon. Mike was AMAZING and provided everything that we needed. He showed us around the island as we viewed the beautiful sunset. There was an open bar and the drinks were soooo good! There were also snacks provided. We got to see huge sea turtles and different beaches. Highly recommend and would definitely book again!!

    This was simply one of the best travel experiences our family has had, anywhere, and we have had many good experiences. The reason is Capt. Mike is a good communicator, host, sailor and a good guy to boot. Not to mention the scenery. Hours well spent.
