The Golden age of piracy once flourished in these islands and when you sail in the warm breeze of the tradewinds aboard Island Girl with the sea reflecting wondrous shades of blue and a gentle breeze blowing in your hair you will be drawn back to our islands again and again.

For your pleasure we offer half day and full day Sail & Snorkel Excursions. The destinations for your adventure are plentiful, Buck Island, Turtle Cove, Wreck Cove, Sprat Bay, Capella, or Honeymoon. Upon entering the turquoise waters while you are snorkeling, you will see various types of vibrant corals, and sponges, turtles, angel fish, trigger fish, and countless other sea creatures.

"Come Sail Away" aboard Island Girl....we have a rum punch just for you!

Fantastic afternoon of sailing and snorkeling! Captain Mike took us to the fabulous Turtle Cove where we saw a trove of turtles and reef fish. Sailing with our small group of six was much more personable than the 20+ jam packed boats we saw along the way. Mike also provided excursion trimmings: Water, soda, as well as rum punch and...

We went with Island Girl during our snorkelling excursion at Turtle Cove. It was a great experience, they even had free spiced cola (rum+coke) on board! The guides were friendly, funny, and helpful.

My family and I picked the Island Girl through the Adventure Center at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef. We loved the fact that we could sail with our family of five in a setting that is relaxing and private. Captain Mike was so polite and very patient with our little one (6 years) as he was a little scared to jump... More

We made reservations for Tuesday... They were there but offered to reschedule for Thursday because of gloomy weather. Thursday's weather was marginally better but despite no other passengers (the boat normally holds 6) they still took us. The sail was fun - basically around water island and back near the coast. Mike and Debi were very responsive over email. There... More

We love to sail on Island Girl when we visit St. Thomas. Mike always provides an enjoyable sail and great snorkel site. This year we loved watching the playful turtles near Buck's Island.

The captain was nice, but don't expect anything for breakfast, not even coffee. Does not have power scooters as indicated and boat is in need of some TLC. Lunch was ok and beverages were average, do not expect too many offerings. We only went to two locations (on same island right across from St Thomas), which were good, but website... More

Your trip was booked through the Adventure Center at the Marriott. This booking has nothing to do with a reservation made directly with us through our web site. We do not offer or advertise a breakfast on our website (which your reservation was not made through) and the Adventure Center at the Marriott does not offer our sail with this... More

Our family (my husband, 20 year old son, 16 year old daughter, 15 year old son and myself) was in St. Thomas for a day in early March during our cruise. I found this excursion through TripAdvisor and booked it online. Communication was great and I was able to prepay everything via Paypal. Mike gave us great directions how to... More

Island Girl is moored very close to the cruise ship dock. 3 minute walk down to meet Mike, another 2 minute dinghy ride and we're off sailing to Buck Island where we enjoyed snorkeling with turtles, barracuda, and many other colorful fishes. I preferred this older boat with a cool laid back captain over the 25 person crowded cat at... More

My husband and I booked an excursion off the Norwegian pearl with these guys several years ago. Everything was so phenomenal that this is our basis against how all excursions are judged. The crew was friendly , on time, and provided champagne. The snorkeling area was perfect - we got to see sea turtles and sharks. We definitely would come... More

We booked an excursion through Royal Caribbean that took us Trunk Bay, St. John. Our ride to and from (30 min each way) St. John on Island Girl was smooth, organized and ON TIME (if you've every cruised before, you know this is very important when it comes to excursions because time is very limited). Crew was friendly, very informative... More
