Wow what Amazing day. Ron and Carol on the Alaunt are the real deal. It was a super windy day and Ron at the helm made us feel completely comfortable. They took us snorkeling in a wonderful cove where we were able to see sea turtles and much more! I would highly recommend a private sail with Ron and Carol... More

It was a first time for me and my family to sail and I agonized over which to choose. But my fears dissolved away when we got on board with Ron and Carol. They were the sweetest couple, the boat was beautiful and everything so exceeded our expectations, we were astonished. My teenage daughters don't get too excited during family... More

What started as an amazing day only got better and better as our day went on. By the end of the day I didn't want to get off the boat. Ever. I will forever close my eyes and feel the sun warming my face while sitting on the bean bag chair while Ron steered us from cove to cove. Heaven... More

I'll make this short as you can read below my other reviews. Carol & Ron take great care of their customers and we just love them. Every cruise we take that stops in St Thomas means we get to book another excursion with them. February 3rd was a perfect day for sailing as the seas were calm and the weather... More

We just completed yet another FABULOUS day with Ron and Carol. We booked a last minute cruise and they were able to accommodate us for a half day sail. We first sailed with them when they began their charters about 14 years ago. It is a great trip if you are staying in St. Thomas or visiting for the day... More

We booked the full day sail and snorkel for 4 adults, and it was worth every penny! Even though our ship docked late (medical emergency), Captain Ron was patiently waiting for us in Red Hook and picked the best snorkeling spot. We also got a delicious lunch, snacks and drinks. Carol is a delightful hostess, Captain Ron the chef, and... More

We chartered the Alaunt for a half-day snorkeling cruise, and it turned out to be the best morning of our vacation. There were six of us, my three kids (13, 11 and 8), and three adults. Originally, we were thinking a ferry and day trip to St. John. Like a bolt of inspiration, I decided to book us a half-day... More

We were the only couple that booked a sailing trip that day and we really had a celebrity treatment. Captain Ron and his wife (and first mate) Carol were very professional and very friendly. We are not great swimmers or into snorkling that much, and they understood this and customized the trip to our taste. This was a very smooth... More

They take a maximum of 6 per sail and we had 3 couples in our group - perfect! Captain Ron met us behind Fish Tails in Red Hook and taxied us out to their comfortable sail boat. We easily arranged ourselves comfortably as Captain Ron & Carol raised sails and we travelled easily to St. John. While en route, Carol... More
