Spent a 1/2 day sail aboard the boat with my wife and 2 daughters age 12 & 14. This was the first time my daughters had been out on a sailing trip. Perfect introduction for them. Captain Jason was professional and informative. Since it was a 1/2 day we did one snorkel and it was a good one. we same too many fish (and different species) to count. I would recommend this sailing trip for any one looking for a good adventure. Book it - you will not regret

On the Friday before leaving to return to the snowy Northeast, we had a great sail on Survivan with our two sons on spring break from college. Snorkeled at Little St. James island, lunch at Christmas Cove, and then some more snorkeling at Rendezvous Bay. A beautiful day, excellent food and drinks, a beautiful boat, and a friendly and professional crew. Perfect.....

We found St. John Yacht Charters on Tripadvisor. We booked Survivian a couple weeks out before arriving to St. John. Jason and Lou communicated regularly to coordinate our local waters trip. They made everything easy. We had a great time - sailing, snorkeling, and a wonderful lunch! And what a beatuiful, well-maintained boat! It was so nice sailing with just a few other people. A nice small group. Jason, Lou, and Triton were fun to hang with! We will definitely book with them again on with our next trip to St. John.

Wanted to see how my boys (9,11,13) would fare on a full day sail. Couldn't have asked for more. Jason and Lou were just the right mix of professionalism and friendliness. Made us feel welcome but also safe. We did the trip to Jost Van Dyke, my wife and I had been to the Soggy dollar 20 years ago and wanted to see it again. It's busier than then, but still has a great vibe. Boys loved snorkeling stop, swim up beach.My wife and I enjoyed the great sail. On the sail back to St. John, we saw a group of three humpback whales breaching, waving their flippers, tails out of the water. (rare for those waters, but a once in a lifetime event for my family to experiecne together). We all enjoyed this (except Triton, it was a bit too much excitement for him.)
Boat is very well maintained. Overall great experience, recommend highly.

Had a great outing during our "local waters trip" with Jason, Lu, and Triton this week. Outstanding communications, drinks, food, snorkeling locations, and crew. The boat is beautiful, very well maintained, and operated. Jason and Lu are professional, while being very friendly at the same time. They've got the balance just right. They took us to a couple snorkeling locations that had plenty to see. We snorkeled many spots around St. John ourselves, but where they took us was even better. The lunch was incredible, far beyond what we were expecting. We weren't expecting drinks, but they were right there right away with plenty to choose from; it was impressive. Heck, it was all impressive. We'll be back with the kids next time!
