More like a short boat ride across the channel to St. John to snorkel on a beach where the snorkeling is no better than on St. Thomas. We thought we were going to see St John which is why we did not take the ferry over to see it. But all we did is go to the closest beaches on St. John with St. Thomas still in sight. Big deal! Over all sail time was maybe two hours. There and back. Although the wind was not really blowing hard Pam seamed to me an overly conservative sailor. On the way back it was a combination motor and jib. I guess she didn't want to bother putting the main up because it was too short a sail back to Red Hook. Pam seemed to me like she was doing a 9 to 5; not really into it. The lunch was a plate of rice and salad with a very few shrimp thrown in and bread. The advertised "open bar" turned out to be weak rum punch. After one you really didn't want another. I have sailed before so yes I may be jaded, but I think it is deceptive to advertise a "day sail" with snorkeling and turn it into more of a "park the boat and snorkel trip" with a short sail. All of those people leaving five star reviews maybe never sailed nor snorkeled. Upon docking and paying, Pam encouraged us to leave a review (regretting that now no doubt), saying that she is being hammered with competition. Everyone has competition. You need to be better than your competition and in these hard economic times try lowering your prices. We definitely did not feel we got our moneys worth. I leave great reviews and not so great reviews where warranted. Automatic glowing reviews are worthless.
