As you snorkel, swim, beach comb, or simply relax aboard sunning on deck or under the shade of the awning an elegant lunch will be prepared for you by the chef/captain.The first mate will give you a guided snorkel tour around the reefs, pointing out the most amazing sea life so don't forget to bring along an underwater disposable camera!NEW!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our sail on Winifred with Capt Mike. Beautiful waters, knowledgable captain, attentive crew!! Lunch was awesome, and keep those Painkillers coming!! Great day, we'll be back next year.

Captain Mike and Bridget are awesome! We had a great sail to Waterlemon Cay with our 2 little boys (ages 3 and 4). We were first timers sailing and loved every bit of it. We are coming back in June and can't wait to sail again. Lunch was really tasty and hit the spot after snorkeling around Waterlemon. Loved that we were able to bring the inflatable closer to the Cay for our 4 year old to snorkel with us. The cool breezes and gently swaying boat put our 3 year old right to sleep, the cabin was a perfect nest for him to crash hard! Captain Mike was really good with the boys and gave us a few lessons on sailing too! Bridget ran into town for a bag of animal crackers for the boys before we left! How awesome of her to be thinking about the boys tastes too! I think they ended up eating the whole bag...Captain Mike may have had a couple...maybe. Thanks for a great day! See you in June!

My friends and I had such a great time sailing on Winifred. Captain Mike and Bridget are the perfect hosts. They are professional, fun, and really go above and beyond to make sure everyone is having a great time, and we definitely did! Winifred also sails beautifully! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Thank you!

Captain Mike and his mate Bridget provided an amazing sailing experience. They make sure everyone aboard gets the experience they desire whether its learning the lingo or lounging on the deck. His expert seamanship and knowledge of the islands goes above and beyond what you would get on a big boat charter, individualizing the experience for all aboard. After a day on Jost Van Dyke we sailed off into an epic sunset. Everyone on our trip including the toddler left with an unforgettable experience. My next visit to St. John will most definitely include a sailing adventure on Winifred.

having spent our honeymoon in St Thomas and a day on the Winifred 11 years ago, we were anxious to relive that. Captain Mike and first mate Josh knew great snorkeling spots that exceeded our expectation. The sailing was fabulous - the highlight of our week. We will definitely contact them again. They know the island and recommended some great dining spots as well.
A day on the Winifred is great value for money and a special romantic experience.
