We hate to submit this review, but our experience was significantly different from that which others described. The winds weren’t great for sailing, but it feels like Phil’s sailing skills might not be what they were in his younger days. He no longer has the first mate referred to in his brochure. The food was not a “delicious Caribbean lunch”. In fact we had some food safety concerns. We also had some mechanical issues with the boat that were resolved after some time, but also were not reassuring. Phil suffered a few minor injuries (which he did not bandage up) during the trip that resulted in him leaving blood behind in several places. We did visit two snorkeling places where snorkeling was good, not great. I’m just trying to be factual here. As a result of our experience, we cannot recommend this.

Our group - grandparents, parents and teens - enjoyed our 1/2 day sail and snorkel adventure. Captain Phil is extremely experienced and explains everything clearly. Highly recommend!

We were delighted by our recent sail with Captain Phil. He deserves his legendary status in St. John.HE KNOWS THE WATERS AND SNORKEL SPOTS INTIMATELY. He is a naturalist with deep knowledge of the USVI. We also got incredibly helpful tips and solutions for why our brand new masks were fogging up. We also were helped by mate Tarn to have a fantastic snorkel. Highly recommend.

Captain Phil was amazingly knowledgeable. Travelled with another couple. We were captured by sharing his stories of his sailing days as well as telling us more of STJ’s history. If he does not feel the trip is going to be worthwhile, he will assure that you get the best ever sailing day. So we rescheduled the day prior due to inconsistent sailing condition. Turned out to be a great sailing day!

Just spent another day sailing with Captain Phil and his mate. Besides being an accomplished sailor, Phil is a great story teller who readily shares his experience, knowledge, and love of the area. Don’t miss the Wayward Sailor!
