This site is advertising under false pretences. They no longer have a boat and everything you see on the website no longer exists. Jocelyn is not responsive but will happily take your money! I booked a trip for 5 people and gave her the deposit through PayPal, as the website says. After repeated emails trying to get information about times and where to meet I finally told her I wanted a refund, good luck with that avenue! I filed a complaint with PayPal and they refunded my money because she never responded to them. As far as I am concerned, she is stealing money from unsuspecting people. Luckily, I figured this all out in advance of our trip and have booked another sail with a company that has gone out of their way to be helpful, courteous and kind.

I submitted a deposit of $140 dollars for a day sail. I never heard from them and then e mailed. Jocelyn e mailed back and said the captain would e mail to confirm specifics . Never heard a word! So I called the number listed.The person that answered said it was a wrong number. I emailed twice and never heard from them. I'm trying to get my deposit back and made other plans for my day in St.Thomas. Just weird!

Dave was grouchy and abrasive. He is not good with little kids. Jocelyn was great. Our visit was actually a couple years back.

We went sailing with Jocelyn, Will, and Dennis and had an amazing time! My husband and I went with three of our teenage girls and they all said it was their favorite part of our trip to the Virgin Islands. The day was perfect, the boat was beautiful, the water was crystal blue, and the snorkeling was great. The crew was fantastic, we loved talking with them and sharing stories but if quiet time is what you want they respected that as well. The appetizers were better than I have had on most luxury charters and Jocelyn had several choices of drinks, mixers, soda and water. Lunch was spectacular, we had the pork chop, with rice and salad and it was one of the best meals we had on the island. Jocelyn cares about making everyone happy and is extremely gracious! Jocelyn has a passion for people and seeing those on her boat smiling and having fun is her goal. She definitely reached her goal with us! We were all smiles all day! She helped us create a very special memory for my husband and three of our girls. We would love to do it again and if we return to Saint Thomas we will absolutely give Jo a call. Thanks Jo, Bear and Dennis for an incredible day! Y'all are the BEST!
