My three sisters and I were here at the end of January for our annual trip and decided to take a day trip over to Jost Van Dyke. We contacted Mystique and were helped by Desiree who was very knowledgeable and was able to answer all the questions we had. It ended up being a small group with only one other group of four which was wonderful, it was almost like having a private tour! The boat was spacious and open, very well kept. The crew were professional and engaging. Capt Blade and hostess Claire showed us a great time! Snorkeling at diamond key followed by lunch and beach time at white bay. It was the perfect balance of quiet relaxation and getting in on a piece of the action. Drinks were included in the trip, of which our favorite was the rum punch ;) We will definitely be back next year!

We were a party of 5, and did a day sail to Jost van Dyke with another party of 4. A beautiful day, even if the water was choppy enough that snorkeling wasn't possible. The crew was helpful enough, but lacked the level of hospitality that we've experienced on other day sails. Not aware of current beach conditions at Salty Spit, where the previously sandy entrance to the beach had eroded to coral rock, so when we werewere advised that we wouldn't need surf shoes to go in, it was painfully wrong, and the captain was surprised when we came back with bruises and scrapes. No offer of neosporin to treat injuries. In the grand scheme of things, we had an overall good day, but we weren't all that impressed with either the boat or the crew.

It takes 8 minimum to take the boat out for the day on a snorkel tour. There were 4 in our party and we waited for a email to confirm for the following morning. They said they had 4 more who were waiting for another party to join them to make up the 8 minimum. The response was not timely. Matt was our captain and Andrew was the first mate. They were the best. They could have just drove the catamaran as most do but they put up the sails and we skipped quietly through the sea. We snorkeled 2 of the normal spots( the Indian's and Norman Island caves) and stopped at a free floating boat for lunch.( Willy T's) We each bought our lunch and drinks and since we were a small group and experienced snorkelers we found a third spot with fans 5' tall.

I have sailed on the Mystique for 10 years. I have seen a number of changes in staff. It is always a wonderful day filled with fun and beauty. I have been out over 40 times since I have a villa on the Island. I highly recommend it.it us always a pleasure. My only recommendation is to keep it intimate not too crowed as that totally changes the peaceful feel.

I've been to many fun places, but this took the prize. The entire day, from booking, to staff and facilities were amazing. Everyone was super helpful and made sure you had a great time. We did this excursion coming from a cruise and I didn't think I wanted to get off a boat to get on another, but I am SO glad we did. My kids said this was their favorite part of the entire week. The beaches are the most beautiful you've ever seen and JVD is not to be missed. Hanging at The Soggy Dollar while the kids played in the water was fun for everyone!
