Owner description: We offer a VIP Private Yacht charter experience aboard Second Wind, a 58 ft power yacht. We only take small groups for a wonderful day of breath-taking scenery, delicious food and drinks. You will have a choice as to where you would like to go, whether it be to snorkeling with turtles, discovering the mysteries of a sunken ship or exploring the gorgeous reefs around the US Virgin Islands or try your luck at deep sea fishing. This is a relaxing day trip with everything at your fingertips. We have 3 crew for you on the boat, that will make sure you don't lack anything. The on-board personal chef makes everything fresh so please let us know in advance of any dietary requirements. The bartender will make sure your glasses are not empty. In addition of the colorful tropical cocktail's she makes also delicious fresh fruit smoothies. And the captain will make sure you see the best of US Virgin Islands.

“Awesome day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

We took a full day trip on the Second Wind and it was great! It was so much better than expected! Everyone was so kind. Wolfgang was a great captain. We had an amazing time snorkeling with Jeff as our guide. He was so helpful in pointing out all of the different wildlife, and he also helped us find sea turtles, rays, etc. Nikki's food was delicious, couldn't have asked for a better day! Worth every penny!

“Second time around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

We just got back from a cruise and in St Thomas we had the opportunity to charter Second Wind for three of us. We had previously done a half day non-private trip with them last year., It was my husband, my mother-in-law and I. My mother-in-law was uncomfortable snorkeling so Wolfgang, our captain that day, kept her entertained floating in the water while my husband and I snorkeled with Jeff. Jeff led us all around the cove and helped us find turtles, stingrays, spotted eagle rays and more. It was some of the best snorkeling we have experienced in years. Top this off with fantastic food, flowing beverages and great stories from Jeff and Wolfgang and it all added up to a fantastic and memorable day. We cant wait to go back to St Thomas and sail again.

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

We took the full day trip on Second Wind on June 16th. Everything was better than expected. (We went with friends that have been on this same trip about 4 times now, and had told us what to expect)
The food was incredible (maybe too much food for just the 4 of us) from all of the pastries, fruit and juices at breakfast, to the wonderful shrimp and chicken dishes for dinner and ALL the snacks in between.
But the snorkeling was just incredible. We had our own private gigantic aquarium to watch at every cove and bay that we went to. Thanks to Jeff for pointing out turtles, rays, starfish and a barracuda.
This trip is HIGHLY recommended.

We took a whole day trip on the Second Wind on July 2 2014. Ana picked us up from the hotel.Once on the boat with Wolfgang at the helm , Jeff our divemaster and Nicky taking care of the kitchen and drinks we couldn't have asked for a better trip ! Thanks for an amazing day guys. My 14 yr old even got to catch a 3 ft barracuda on his first try at sport fishing! ! Can't beat that! Everything that you read in the reviews is true. These guys are pros.

“Best we have ever experienced.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

We went on a voyage with the Second Wind crew the last week of June. It was simply the best experience of this type we have ever encountered. We have a seven year old and a son with special needs. The crew was fantastic with them-Ana was able to get our special needs son to snorkel and see a green turtle and really sparked the seven year old's love for the ocean by showing him many interesting things in the ocean while snorkeling. The food and drinks were fantastic and Wolfgang, Ana and Nicki were kind and funny. A great trip and a great value. One of our kids left a jacket on the boat by accident. Ana tracked it down and mailed it to us in the US. They just do the things a business should do. We will go again if we ever get back to USVI. Thank you to the crew!
