We've been on quite a few sailing day trips in the Caribbean and this was the best. Every operator offers sailing, snorkeling, lunch and drinks. So the difference becomes the other amenities and the crew. Diane, the owner, has assembled a great little crew. I'm sure that Diane being a member of the crew is part of the charm and part of the reason the crew blends together so well. Captain Trevor is a very fascinating character that has rigged together this Tarzan swing that is a riot to play on at the second stop. He also brings a paddle board along which people can do on the first stop. Eli is the first mate and she's bright little bundle of energy who offers mud baths and is just a joy to be around. It's a great crew and great time.

My son and I sailed with Diane and Trevor in May 2014. The excursion was definitely a highlight of our week-long vacation in St. Maarten. The weather, food, drinks and trapeze swing were fabulous. We really enjoyed snorkeling and swimming in the clear Caribbean. We highly recommend the Random Wind....

Our family of four with a 12 yo girl and 9 yo boy had an amazing experience on this boating excursion. The crew was so nice! We had a lovely ride, fun swimming with the trapeze swing and a fantastic meal. We highly recommend this excursion!!! Thanks Random Wind, Trevor and Eli!!!

My husband, myself and our two daughters ages 26 and 22 spent a wonderful day on the Random Wind enjoying this luxury boat while in St. Maarten during our cruise. The Captain, Trevor, and his First Mate, Eli were top notch. She did a fabulous job assisting Trevor, waiting on us, entertaining us, photographing us and feeding us a delicious lunch and snacks. Drinks of all kinds were available at all times, however, I would have liked to have bottled water available--the only thing lacking. We made two stops for swimming and got to try the stand-up paddle board which was fun. The snorkeling wasn't great but at the second stop, Trevor brought out the Tarzan swing and we all (just nine of us in total) had a ball. Also got to see a couple of jets land and take off while cruising by the airport--very cool. The day on the Random Wind was a highlight of our cruise and visit to St. Maarten. We all loved it!!

Wonderful day on the water. Elie served sodas, alcoholic and virgin drinks, even shirley temples for the kids. We stopped at a beach for snorkeling, paddle boarding, or just swimming and playing on the beach. Then Elie made an amazing lunch (salad, curried chicken rice, bread, cookies for dessert). The meal was delicious. She actually prepared it on the boat. After lunch we sailed to another location for more swimming and jumping off the Tarzan swing. What a blast. On the way back to shore Elie prepared snacks for us and she surprised us with a special gift for our wedding anniversary celebration. She was incredible. She was so friendly and outgoing and really worked hard to entertain all on board. She also took pictures throughout our excursion which she posted on their website in the photo section for free. Lots of sun block needed though. There was only one area which provided shade. Fabulous experience.
