Our family of 5 (kids ages 17,14 and 11) booked a six-hour catamaran snorkeling trip on June 27, 2013 with Sails Safaris and we all enjoyed every minute of the trip.
Justin, our captain, was friendly, informative about the St. John and surrounding islands, laid back and very open to our having our family five under his command for the day. We felt very much at home in his company. Our first mate, Brandon, was friendly, very informative about the many different fish to look for at each of our three snorkeling spots.
"Fly Girl", the catamaran, was roomy enough for all of us and to stretch out and the kids absolutely loved sitting up front and getting wet during the sail to and from our destinations. We all saw many beautiful fish and coral. There is a seating area that is also undercover if the sun gets to be too much for you.
Justin had a display card that we used to identify the fish that we saw. It was a great way to explore the many areas of St. John that you cannot get to by car. I would highly recommend Sail Safaris to a family or group of friends who enjoy sailing and want to spend a relaxing day of fun and snorkeling.
The trip included lunch and beverages - cold cuts, soda, beer, juices and snacks were waiting for us after our second snorkeling destination. None of us wanted to leave when Fly Girl finally returned back to Cruz Bay.
Just a heads up for families with kids...there is no bathroom on board. Moms might want to know that ahead of time. My daughter tends to get car sick but she had no problems on Fly Girl.
Thanks again to Justin and Brandon for a great day.
