“Fantastic hosts!”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

We did a day cruise with Jason and Lou, and they were outstanding hosts. Super friendly and laid back. Lou provided a fantastic lunch and the food just seemed to keep coming. In addition she introduced us to her favorite drink which was fantastic!

The boat is the perfect size for 6 guests which is what we had and everyone had a great time!

They took us to 2 different snorkeling places (congo and little st. james) which were pretty good, but probably were better at a different time of year.

I would sail with them again in a heartbeat!

“If you want to sail, you can't beat Survivan”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We have sailed with Jason and Lou on two different trips over the past several years. Both times have been the highlight of our trip. They have a great boat, are extremely knowledgeable and excellent sailors...but more than that are just great people and fun to be around. Triton was a new addition on our latest sail to Jost, and is absolutely adorable. If you are looking for a sailing trip to Jost or just around St. John, I highly recommend you go with Survivan.

“Charming crew, superb snorkeling”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

On January 6th, my family had a wonderful "Local Waters" trip on Survivan with Capt Jason, Lu and Triton. The seas were rolling, which made the sailing exciting, but we always felt we were in very safe and experienced hands. The two snorkeling spots were filled with a large variety of fishes, and a few turtles and rays. Jason and Lu knew a lot about the critters and had terrific stories to share about their life at sea. The lunch was delicious, and our hosts were friendly and fun. This was a highlight of our trip on St. John, and we highly recommend Survivan.

“You have to sail with Capt Jason, Lou and Triton!!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Absolutely loved our trip with Survivan! Choosing to sail to Jost for the day proved to be an adventure for our family! The knowledge and expertise from Capt Jason and Lou Made our trip interesting and memorable. After researching a few different day sail options on St John, you absolutely have to go with Survivan. Thanks Jason, Lou and ofcourse Triton!

“Another great trip with Jason and Lou”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

On Jan 4th, my family and I had another super trip with Jason and Lou on Survivan. The crew is very professional, safety conscious and work hard to create a wonderful experience. Jason took us to some fresh spots for snorkeling and we had the unique adventure of swimming with a wild dolphin in Congo Bay. We would highly recommend SJYC for an exciting day of sailing and great company out on the Caribbean waters.
