We returned to St Lucia after 5 years and going sailing with Jus Sail was one of the real reasons for coming back. Last time we visited we did a sunset sail, but this time we took a day sail and a half day sail a few days later. There is something magical about being on the water in this traditional wooden sailing boat as it carves its way through the waves. You feel really connected to the sea and you understand the power of the wind. Whether you sit back with a glass of wine, take in the views of the island and spot passing turtles, or watch and learn from the crew as they expertly and enthusiastically sail, you will be amazed at how quickly the time passes. The crew are absolutely brilliant - James and OB have incredible knowledge and it's great to see a new face (and passionate sailor) in Krishna.

This team just can't do enough for you. There was always wonderful food, beer, wine and, of couse, rum on offer. At our stop at Margot bay there was the best table waiting for us in the best restuant (Masala Bay) and we also had time for a swim in a calm and beautiful bay. We loved it when the boat got up a bit of speed, so on our half day we were treated to some more exhiliarating sailing.

This is something really special and it will be top of our list the next time we come back to St Lucia.

Spectacular sunset cruise from Rodney Bay. The sailboat is a unique all-wood vessel and the crew are charming and informative. As a bonus the cruise supports a development program for local young people. A must!

Too many “sailing excursions” end up as motor/sail rum punch parties. Way too many guests and too much rum.

“Just Sailing” offers a custom itinerary where you can match the weather and time available to best advantage.

We are lifelong sailors who live on our boat in the North Atlantic for five months a year. Our other guests were our children and grandchildren. For all of us Jus Sailing offers a capable sea boat with an outstanding crew, minus the cold, fog and fickle weather that we are used to. Their boat is very sea kindly with a soft motion yet we were able to reach from Rodney Bay to Les Pitons and back (around 40nm) including a lengthy snorkel stop. Great way to see the West coast of St Lucia. Oh yes, lunch was great.

We were lucky enough to spend half a day with OB and Krishna on a sunset cruise - it was the highlight of our holiday and an unforgettable experience. The sailing boat was amazing and even though the sea was a little choppy, our crew were unfazed and sailed with such skill! The snacks and drinks were also delicious. Overall, this was an incredible experience - we will be back!

A great morning sail with friends. We decided to do the 3 hour up and go sail with four friends. Looked after by OB and Krishna we had a great time. At first it looked like we would not have much wind but OB (ever reliable) found the wind and it picked up and the boat got moving. Both my husband and I helmed for some of the time. We have known O’Brien for quite a while and recently met Khrisna during our last trip. Really nice to see how they have progressed and the confidence shown. Friendly but always keeping an eye out the atmosphere was both relaxed and professional . I think this may be my 6th trip with Jus Sail and it won’t be my last.

Thanks everyone!

My husband and I did a sunset sail for our honeymoon with OB and Krishna and highly recommend it. The boat is beautiful and OB and Krishna were experts who kept the boat sailing smoothly and provided great conversation. They had Piton beer for us, local rum, rum punch, and champagne for the sunset.

Rodney Bay Marina where the boat is kept was a short distance from our resort (The Royalton) and an easy cab ride away. James (of Jus’ Sail) will coordinate a cab for you if needed.

Our half-day trip with Jus Sail was the absolute highlight of what was already a fantastic week. OB and Krishna were so welcoming and laid back, nothing was too much trouble. Being under big canvas again, reading the wind on the waves, witnessing a splendid sunset ... what more could you want? We hugely recommend anyone thinking about a trip to just not hesitate. DO IT !! ... you won't regret it ... and you'll also be supporting Jus Sail's youth training programme as well.

We booked a private sail boat because we wanted a peaceful afternoon on the water - no people or noise! The sail boat was surprisingly comfy and we felt immediately at peace! Krishna and OB were clearly skilled sailors, but also fun to chat with and very attentive! Highlight of our time in St. Lucia! We will be back and hope we can meet up with this team and do it all again! EXCEPTIONAL TRIP!

We (two couples travelling together) were able to get a last minute sunset cruise while in Gros Islet. A great crew that knew their boat and knew a lot about sailing. The waters were a little rough so we spent our time tacking back and forth in the bay. Excellent drinks and an ice chest within reach. Very calming and peaceful.

We had an incredible time. The boat is gorgeous and OB and Krishna were amazing! There were some decent swells out there and quite a good wind. OB and Krishna made it look easy to sail while looking after us and ensuring we were happy and comfortable! It was fun to watch OB and Krishna sailing this boat. The scenery was so majestic and unique and we saw some nice tropical fish while snorkeling too. We didn’t want the day to end!

This sail was such fun and was a wonderful way for us to celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary.

It is great to see people restoring beautiful old boats and making experiences such as this available for travelers. It was truly a very special day.

Happy 22nd Wedding Anniversary! Our boat Good Expectation is the only Carriacou Sloop in St Lucia. You enjoyed your charter with us on a vessel that is part of the traditional Caribbean boat building heritage. We restored her in 2011 and since then she has continued to bring a lot of joy to all who sail on her. Many thanks for your review and congratulations once again. Best Wishes from the @jussail Crew.
