Nightwind is a full service day sail and snorkel excursion, sailing to St John and other small islands suitable for young and old alike. Our niche is private sails for families and groups up to 15 guests. We offer open sails as well for those wishing to meet and sail with new friends. We sail and snorkel at two different locations during our full day sail. Our offerings include continental breakfast, snacks, lunch, dessert and an open bar (something for everyone).Nightwind sails from Sapphire Marina on the East End of St. Thomas close to Red Hook. Captain Rick and First Mate Wes offer top notch personalized service from the moment you step onto the deck of Nightwind. Booking is simple and easy you may book online or for a more person touch you can call and speak with Cathy to confirm your sail on Nightwind.

This was a great trip. It can be booked well in advance so you might want to make your arrangements in advance. That said, we were picked up and taken to the Marina where we were served breakfast. There were only 4 of us and we were staying at the same place. You can chart your own adventure or go... More

We really enjoyed our time aboard Yacht Nightwind. Captain and his wife were lovely. Captain's assistant could be a bit short with guests, but maybe she was just having a bad day. Great service, excellent lunch. Snorkeling in both St. John and Christmas Island St. Thomas fabulous. Would recommend

My family and I booked a day trip sailing on the Yacht Nightwind in early July. We had such a fantastic time, we booked another day immediately. The whole experience is top-notch, from the beautiful yacht, to the tasty food and drink, to the amazing snorkeling spots. Captain Rick and Deb are wonderful hosts, full of knowledge about the islands... More

What a wonderful addition to our vacation. Rick and Deb were fantastic. They took care of everything, and made the day extra fun. I have been on both snorkeling and sailing excursions before, and this one tops them all. Rick provided a true sailing experience, which was every bit as thrilling as the snorkeling. The food was fantastic! We will... More

The day completely exceeded all of our expectations. It was worth every penny and then some. We had amazing service from beginning to end. We never wanted for anything, they waited on us hand and foot the entire day. The attention to detail was exceptional right down to the food presented with native flowers. It all made the day of...

Was on a cruise, but one of our group had sailed with them before, so we booked our expedition independent of cruise line. Best decision of trip!!! Great sailing, food, drinks, snorkeling, crew- all added up to an amazing day of fun. Hearing the history of the area and having places pointed out as we sailed was an extra bonus.... More

Our group of 10 can only echo the other positive reviews of Yacht Nightwind. We spent a lovely day on the sailboat with the crew. The food and drinks were delicious, and we had a lovely time on the sailboat. Great snorkling around St. John and lots of sea turtles to be seen!

These guys don't really need another great review, but here's one anyway. The Nightwind carries only 12 guests, which was one of the first things that caught my attention. We came over from a cruise ship, and this was a much more intimate experience and perfect alternative to the large, never-get-off-the-bus tours so many lines seem to offer. First off,... More
