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.

Fabulous Captain and crew. Lots of information about the islands we were passing, what we were seeing. Very personalized trip that they tailored based on the wind and best places to snorkel that would not be crowded but would be great snorkeling. They surely know these waters, best reefs, etc.. Went to places we never would have been otherwise, got... More

I can't tell you enough about this company, I highly recommend this people to anyone, I have traveled around the world and I can tell when the service is going to be good or not usually within 10 minutes in the tour. The captain Rick was very savvy, gives clear instructions, is laid back and pleasant to deal with but... More

Two friends and I spent a day on Nightwind while recently vacationing in St. Thomas. It was the best snorkel trip/day sail I've ever done. Rick and Deb were wonderful in taking care of everyone on the boat. They provided great information throughout the trip and made sure everyone was comfortable. We were greeted on the boat with breakfast and... More

Nightwind is one of the best ways to snorkel the coves of St. John and have a very relaxing day on the water. All your needs are taking care of for you, just bring your towel and sun screen. Captain Rick provides the food, drinks and gives a great tour of the area and it's islands.

My hubby and I had been on The NightWind six years ago when we visited St. Thomas for a week. This time returned by cruise ship. We were very excited to share our previous experience with our children this time. Along with our friends from home and my mom, we were a party of 14. We were not disappointed. Rick... More

Rick and Deb made this amazing trip even more memorable. Their personalities were some of the friendliest I've ever encountered. Breakfast was good. Lunch was great. The timeliness of drink refills were amazing! Snorkeling brought us two three different places. Sea turtles, coral reefs, rays and tons of fish. So much fun! I'd absolutely recommend Nightwind Charter to any friend... More

The cruise was amazing. Beautiful day for a sail. The kids loved the snorkeling and the spots Rick chose were great. Lots of fish and turtles. Debbie was great helping us to identify some of the species spotted. Rick and Debbie were both very knowledgeable about the island and it's history. They were great hosts and so much fun. The...

We had a calm day so mostly motored around. Rick and Deb were great hosts. The food was good, drinks were cold. We enjoyed the time snorkeling and just riding on this trip. It was a fun day.

An absolutely dreamy day!!! Captain Rick and Deb were perfect, the food and drink was plentiful (and delicious!! beautifully prepared!!), and the day was all we could ask for and more! They took us to amazing snorkeling locations, were informative and helpful with equipment, and we had plenty of time to explore! Even though the weather was a little stormy... More
