Owner description: Nightwind is a full service day sail and snorkel excursion, sailing to St John and other small islands suitable for young and old alike. Our niche is private sails for families and groups up to 15 guests. We offer open sails as well for those wishing to meet and sail with new friends. We sail and snorkel at two different locations during our full day sail. Our offerings include continental breakfast, snacks, lunch, dessert and an open bar (something for everyone).Nightwind sails from Sapphire Marina on the East End of St. Thomas close to Red Hook. Captain Rick and First Mate Wes offer top notch personalized service from the moment you step onto the deck of Nightwind. Booking is simple and easy you may book online or for a more person touch you can call and speak with Cathy to confirm your sail on Nightwind.

“Fantastic trip”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Took my 2 sons, age 10 and 12, with my wife and my mother and father on a trip to St. Thomas after getting away from the crowds on our Disney cruiseship. They helped us arrange transport to and from our cruise ship. We arrived and left on time. Food was fabulous. Drinks were tasty enough to crave several helpings. Snorkeling conditions unbeatable. They were even kind enough to rebook another group to accomodate our tight arrival/departure schedule!! A true highlight of our Caribbean vacation. Unbeatable customer service.

“Smooth Sailing”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

This was a fantastic experience for my lady and I. The ship was in great shape and the captain and his first lady mate were a pleasure to spend the day with. Will definitely be back for more smooth sailing.

“Sailed with them Twice”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

If you are on a cruise stopping for the day in St. Thomas do this. While they could fit a couple dozen, they will typically take only one (or two) groups. Non stop (great) food and drinks. You decide the itinerary.

“What a great day, a must do.”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

My wife and I had an awesome time on the nightwind. A day of sailing and snorkeling was worth the trip to St. Thomas alone. The crew was great, the food and drinks were great. perect day, we will be doing it again.

“Great Sailing and Snorkeling Experience”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

My wife and I took our daughter for her first adventure on the Nightwind. It was our third. Captain Rick took great care to make sure we had new and unique sailing and snorkeling experiences from previous years. It was a remarkably pleasant day. Food, beverage and snorkeling was fantastic as well as the shared experience. The First Mate did a nice job guiding us on a snorkeling expedition at one stop. Lot's of fun. We look forward to our next sail aboard the Yacht Nightwind.
