“Random Wind 10/19/12”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Who doesn't love Diane? She and Trevor are so welcoming, and this trip is a must!!! From the dinghy ride to the boat, to the last cocktail before heading back to shore, Diane makes you feel at home in her home! (She and her children live on the boat!) The beer cooler is the first thing you see, and it's all yours to enjoy... filled with Heineken, Coors Light, soft drinks etc. She serves bloody mary's, rum punch and a collection of other liquors. The food on this trip is very good, with a Chicken dish, rice, salad, bread, desserts, and chocolates to tempt your pallet. When we sailed past the Princess Julianna airport, a KLM plane flew directly over the boat! There are two stops that are made on the trip where you snorkel at the first stop and then utilize the Tarzan swing at the second stop... this is so much fun for yound and old, an experience you can only get on the Random wind!!! This was our third time for this attraction, and each time we go, it just gets better! Until next year...

“Amazing Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

My husband and I booked a trip on the Random Wind as part of our honeymoon in St. Maarten and it was just as fantastic as we were hoping it would be! The weather agreed and we had a sunny day full of tasty food and drinks and great company! Diane and Trevor were fabulous sailors and hosts! We had the pleasure of being in the company of perhaps the oldest man to experience the Tarzan swing - a true inspiration to how we hope to live our lives to the fullest at any age! We hope to go back to St. Maarten and we would book this trip again in a heartbeat!

“Dianne is the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

We booked our trip at the last minute, w/out knowing whether we'd get on or not. We sent an email the night before and got a wake-up call from Dianne the next morning saying she had 2 spots still open on her cruise.
When we got to the meeting spot at Skip-Jack's it wasn't totally obvious whether we were in the right spot, but after checking around, everyone confirmed that we were. She met us at the pier in a small dingy and chauffeured us out to the Random Wind. From there, it was pure relaxation bliss... a totally full boat, but nothing was missed. She had drinks, lunch, snacks, hors d'oeuvres, and... did I say drinks?!?!? Dianne mixed drinks non-stop until everyone was happy.
We stopped for snorkeling, lunch, and as many swings from her Tarzan swing as we could stand! She and 'Trevor' (first mate) demonstrated some awesome moves on that swing!
All in all.. a wonderful ... relaxing... and great time!

“"The Highlight of our cruise" Munson's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

I am so glad,I researched and decided on The Random Wind, the best choice ever. We sailed 1st wk in October, and had a great time. The Snorkeling and Tarzan Swing were so much fun, we even helped with hoisting the sails. Diane was amazing and all Trevor needed was a patch over one eye..LOL. they were gracious hosts. Di prepared a delicious lunch, with snacks and desserts, and all the Rum Punch, cocktails and non-cocktails u can drink. We will definitely book again. I urge you all "Book this Excursion" you wont be sorry. Thank you, Diane and Trevor.
