Owner description: The Golden age of piracy once flourished in these islands and when you sail in the warm breeze of the tradewinds aboard Island Girl with the sea reflecting wondrous shades of blue and a gentle breeze blowing in your hair you will be drawn back to our islands again and again. For your pleasure we offer half day and full day Sail & Snorkel Excursions. The destinations for your adventure are plentiful, Buck Island, Turtle Cove, Wreck Cove, Sprat Bay, Capella, or Honeymoon. Upon entering the turquoise waters while you are snorkeling, you will see various types of vibrant corals, and sponges, turtles, angel fish, trigger fish, and countless other sea creatures. "Come Sail Away" aboard Island Girl....we have a rum punch just for you!

We met Capt Mike years ago on an excursion during a cruise. There were 6 of us and we lucked out getting to take the half day snorkel to buck island with Mike and his daughter Ariel, yep like the little mermaid. What a great day, we have since bought a week at Marriott Frenchman's Cove and go back each year to St Thomas. We've actually done three trips with Capt Mike in a week and he's also arranged for another boat to go out with us when we had a party of more than 6.

Both coves on buck island where you typically sail are nice and although enjoying the sail on the deck is hard to beat, you will enjoy getting to know Capt Mike if you hang out with him in the covered cockpit of the Island Girl.

If you are looking for a simple, enjoyable, relaxed day of sailing and snorkelling its hard to beat Capt Mike and The Island Girl!

We arrived in St. Thomas by cruise ship. This was a part of our excursion. They took us from the pier to St. John for our island tour. Although the sea was a little choppy and rough, they did their best to minimize the rock of the boat. The crew was very pleasant and very friendly.

Our favorite excursion of our cruise. We booked the half day sail. We could see the Island Girl from the ship and we were picked up right at the end of the pier. The snorkeling was great. Loads of colorful fish, and lots of turtles. Saw the other boats full of people, and felt so glad that we had booked with Mike and the Island Girl and had just our group of 5. Sailing was so calming and beautiful. Snacks and drinks were a nice addition. Would definitely book again if we're back in St. Thomas.

Thanks, Capt. Mike, for the BEST, most memorable experience we had in St. Thomas! We booked the half-day snorkel trip to Buck Island and were THRILLED with it! Not only was the snorkeling some of the best we've ever enjoyed, the limited group size -- only four passengers aboard that day -- made us feel particularly special.

If you're considering a snorkel excursion in St. Thomas, forego the big group outings and choose the Island Girl instead. You won't regret it!

We had the wonderful opportunity of sail with Capt. Mike and Ariel for our private snorkeling experience. With only 4 people on board, Mike was able to pamper us with snacks and drinks when we had finished our swim. Ariel joined us in the was and was fantastic, answering our questions and guiding us to the best places to see the sting rays, sea turtles, beautiful coral and an abundance of beautiful fish. Mike shared his experiences sailing the area on the sail back to port. This has got to be one of the best values in St. Thomas for anyone looking for a private snorkel trip. It was much more fun for us than going with 25 or 30 people. The personal attention was fantastic! Highly recommended!!!
