“Sail Safaris does it right”
Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

We have been coming to St John for nearly 20 years and gone on many day sails but this year's trip with Sail Safaris really stood out. We had some places we were hoping to go to and Eric and his staff were prepared to make the day special for us. They were attentive but never overbearing, excellent sailors, and great hosts. The boat Del Rose was clean, modern and spacious, the perfect vehicle for our day. We are planning another trip to St John in a couple of months and will definitely plan to sail with them again.

“Best day of our vacation!”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

On January 7, 2014 we had a blast on the Fly Girl with Justin and Liz! I'm so glad we took the full day snorkel and wouldn't miss doing this again on every trip to St. John. Three great snorkel spots, lunch and drinks, absolutely a great day! See you again for sure!
Thank you Sail Safaris,
Chris, Wade, Hailey, Kait, Amber and Tim.

“Wonderful experience on Sail Safaris!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

We had a wonderful experience with Mike & Lauren on Sail Safaris from St. John to Jost Van Dyke! They are extremely professional, knowledgeable and took great care of us (even in the storm we hit on the way back)! Great sailboat and great crew!

“Superb Sailing Experience”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

I cannot speak more highly of Kellie, Mike and Lauren at Sail Safaris. Everything about our experience was exemplary. Kellie was was extremely professional in her flexibility during the planning our two excursions. Mike was the ideal captain to lead us through the islands over our trips through the islands and snorkel locations. Lauren's ability to connect with our children (12,10 and 8) was greatly appreciated by my wife and myself.
We will be using them for many years to come.

“Highlight of our trip”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Went out for a full day on the hobie cat with a very hospitable and knowledgeable guide. Beautiful and peaceful to sail around the islands on a small catamaran. Snorkeled at three different places that were all full of life and otherwise inaccessible. Enjoyed a very decent picnic lunch on an tiny island off the coast of St. John. Would definitely recommend the full day package versus half day - takes some time to get around on the hobie cat, and you'll just be getting started when you come back. And it's a great value!
