Best choice we could have made for a full day sail and snorkel trip off St. Thomas! The crew—Adele and Jocelyn—was skilled, knowledgeable, and super accommodating. The trip was uncrowded and relaxed. We sailed with a really fun small group, and got to choose how much of the day was spent snorkeling and how much was spent sailing. We got... More

I haven't had a sail like this...ever. We met the Jocelyn at P Dock in Red Hook and took a dingy to the sail boat. From then, the trip went above and beyond anything I could describe. I will summarize this sailing experience in three points! 1) great food! The pork chops are wonderful...grilled right on the boat! But there... More

Our family had a wonderful day sail with Jocelyn and her capable crew! The weather around St Thomas and St John was beautiful, and we enjoyed sailing and snorkeling, as well as delicious food and beverages on board. In fact my 22 year old daughter suggested that Jocelyn should open her own restaurant!! Jocelyn and her crew were friendly, gracious... More

We enjoyed a half-day sailing/snorkeling trip into the sunset with Jocelyn (the owner), and Adele (the Captain). While half-day, whole-day, and sunset sailing trips were advertised, when we asked if we could do a half-day trip and a sunset sail we were graciously accommodated. Jocelyn and Adele were a pleasure to hang out with. Both of them were very hospitable... More

Jocelyn and Adele were excellent hosts! They made the cruise very friendly and relaxing. Great food and drinks, but most importantly, great conversation with two really nice people! Their dogs Buddy and Sophia welcomed us aboard with great enthusiasm too. If you are planning a sailing outing in the Virginia Islands, Oh Be Joyful is a must!!

This was our third time with Jocelyn (the first mate/ owner)) and Sophia ( the cutest and friendliest Jack Russell terrier I've ever held so she could nap). The boat is fantastic. We sail the Caribbean to all the good snorkeling spots. Haven't been to the same one twice yet. The prepared snacks and meal is spectacular. Highly recommend the... More

We had the wonderful opportunity of sail with Jocelyn for our private snorkeling experience in St. John, Jocelyn guiding us to the best places to see the beautiful coral and an abundance of beautiful fish. This has got to be one of the best experience in St. Thomas for anyone looking for a private snorkel trip, Jocelyn personal attention was... More

We sailed with Jo and Adelle yesterday and had a fabulous time. The food and drinks were excellent, but most importantly is that they went out of their way to make us comfortable, especially our youngest that was a little apprehensive! If you want to go off the beaten path and experience God's creation, this is for you!

We were thrilled and loved every bit of our 6-hour sail with Jocelyn, Captain Adele and their fur babies, Sophia and Buddy. This was one of the best things we did as a family while visiting St. Thomas in July. The hospitality that was shown to us was just unbelievable. The attention to detail and the care of our needs...

Took a private charter with another couple whom we were traveling with on 4/29/16. Had a great trip and would do it again without hesitation. Only thing I might change is to do the full day as opposed to a half day trip... it was that good. Great sail out, bar and drinks were great... snacks were great... had a... More
