Captain Jason took us to a beautiful reef, with safe currents. The currents around St. John are very strong, so you have to be careful. This was perfect. And the sail there was through some beautiful passages between islands. Gorgeous water. He knows right where to go and is an experienced sailor. As is his crew.

Had another great trip with Jason and Leslie. Did a combo snorkel stop and sunset sail. Always love hanging on Cloud 9 checking out the sights and taking in the beauty of the Island. The service is always great and they've got everything you could need for a great experience, whether you're snorkeling, sailing, diving, or any combination of the... More

We usually like to take a large Catamaran out on a private charter but the rates on St. John are simply crazy. So I looked around for a single hull tour and Cloud9 cam recommended from another tour operator. It was the right choice. We were on the larger 50 ft boat and it was perfect for the 6 of... More

We had such a great time on our all day sailing and and snorkeling trip. The crew of Thomas and Lesley were outstanding and the snorkeling in 3 different locations was incredible. A highly memorable experience!

My wife and I had a great time on Cloud 9 with Cap. Jason. First, we stopped at a nice snorkel destination - great coral and fish, then it was off to see Foxy. We had a nice lunch and talk with the "man" himself before stocking up on "Foxy" wear and then heading over to White Beach. Great day... More

Very good trip, relaxing crew, good food. Snorkeling was ok. Reefs were pretty, but not many fish. The crew was helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the small party. It was only myself, my two daughters and my sister.

The short story: We booked a private charter for six people with Cloud 9 based on a referral from a friend. Everyone loved the trip, time flew by, and the Cloud 9 staff was incredible. They made sure our drinks were filled regularly and were very accommodating. The longer story: Even though a friend referred Cloud 9, I still double... More

First, if you're expecting amenities, this isn't your trip. They offer an "open bar" and a snack after snorkeling. The "open bar" was drinks poured by the mate with little to no rum in them and the offer of maybe 2 refills. The snack was two small bowls of Chex Mix with only one of the bowls being refilled. This... More
