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!

We had the best time sailing & snorkeling with Captain Phil & Tarn. They were both knowledgeable about the area, snorkeling & sailing. Lots of great stories. I learned a bit about marine life as well. The day goes by so quickly. We did 2 snorkeling segments and explored some amazing areas and saw really amazing fish. 🐠 I would definitely recommend this experience early in your trip so you can get out into the beautiful turquoise water. It’s very safe as well. We were here as a couple, but I would feel completely comfortable taking our kids with us. Phil fits you for the snorkel mask & makes sure your equipment is successful so you can just enjoy your time in the water.
