Terrific day on a sailboat and snorkeling in two locations. Lunch was great and the captain and two first mate gals were delightful. I also enjoyed it because it wasn't a mob-scene tour like so many others. And you had to be in good shape to participate. Only disappointment was the lack of fish!

Reviewer: Valerie Bonanno
Wes and his crew made every effort to make our outing with them a lifetime memory. By limiting the number of passengers, everyone felt they had their own "personal space". The only negative part to the day was getting to Sapphire Marina from the cruise ship dock. It was chaotic trying to find a trustworthy taxi to take us on the 20 minute ride. Getting back was easy because there were taxis waiting for fares at the marina (which is part of a condominium complex). I would suggest having taxis affiliated with the sailboat company be at the dock with signs saying Sapphire Harbor. Taxi fare was $10 p.p.

This tour was awesome! We loved our captain and his mates. The food and drinks were plentiful, the views incredible and the snorkeling some of the best we have ever done. When we return and we will, I fully plan on booking with these guys again!

Reviewer: Terry Wyhoski
Booked the Snorkel trip for day in Port at St Thomas. I don't recommend if on cruise. When I reviewed the excursion-plus travel time, realized we wouldn't get back to ship on time. Not sure, we went to go to the start point to confer with guides. We took a cab-$54 RT and found 2 others from ship. Guide agreed to shorten trip, cab driver agreed to pick us up-great driver! Went on the trip-wonderful! Sailboat nice, comfy-the crew hard working, knowledgeable and fun! Sailed to St Johns -lovely ride! Snorkeling average. Not lot of fish but saw stingrays- some colorful small fish, I've snorkeled in better areas. Taken to another area, better not a lot of fish. Still great to be on water -equipment used was fine. Lunch served was wonderful! Plenty of food, nice variety! A variety of drinks also available! Turned out fine, enjoyed the day but due to timing, didn't get to do shopping or see anything else of St Thomas so do advise Cruisers to think about this excursion.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this day. The captain and staff were extremely friendly and made the trip a great experience. My youngest daughter was a little hesitant to snorkel, so the captain actually took time and showed her how to steer the boat to keep her happy & interested! The food & drinks were great as well. The meal was hot, more than just cold sandwiches. If we go back, we would definitely look to book this again.

5 StarsAn Enjoyable DayJuly 12, 2016

Reviewer: Sharon Pearson
We had a wonderful day sailing on a boat with about 20 people on board. The easy going crew made the adventure fun with their light hearted attitude but still with an eye on safety. They were always ready to accommodate your needs. The delicious lunch served was a variety of salads and treats and tasty drinks. We were full! Better than the usual sandwich platter with plenty to eat. The beaches and water on St John are wonderful. At least they did not have to chum the water in order for you to see fish and coral. Overall, I would recommend this excursion for a wonderful day of sailing. Less people than a catamaran. Very relaxing!

This excursion was less expensive than the cruise ship excursion. I am so happy I chose this one. The boat held about 30-35 people, fewer than the larger boat the cruise ship excursion had. That allowed for a more intimate setting, and I met so many people that were from our same city! Everyone seemed relaxed and we had a great time.

great sailing! had never been on sail boat before! snorkeling did not have an abundance of fish -- would have liked a cove with more. 6 hr trip plus taxis on either side -- had worried about missing the cruise boat but that worked out. would have liked it advertised as 5 hour trip to increase comfort about cruise window

It was a beautiful day to be out on the water sailing and snorkling. The Event Horizon was clean, well maintained, and roomy. The Captain and crew were professional, friendly, and helpful with an eye on safety. I loved the conversations, relaxed atmosphere, professional snorkeling equipment, filling and tasty lunch, cool drinks, and just being away from the maddening crowd. This was the highlight of my time on St Thomas.

Reviewer: OKJennie
Began by worrying we would not have time for trip and make it back on board. Called and were assured. Barely got there on time. Boat named New Horizons. Beautiful older sail boat. Really sailed with both sails out over to St John's Honeymoon beach. Snorkeled. Back on board and a big lunch including meatballs, pasta salad lots of food. Second snorkel sight was Christmas Cove. Beautiful calm water. Captain was Chuck and first mate Pearl. Only 11 passengers. Really nice day. Big rush to make it back to ship. Timing was worst part. Also - no time to do ANYTHING else. Thought we could shop - no way

This was a sailing, snorkeling, and eating frenzy! The sailing was abound a 65' concrete hull sail boat with an exceptional crew. We went to two snorkeling areas where the water was clear and the snorkeling was fantastic. Then we had a funamenal itialian dining expeience aboard the vessel. It was an experience we willnot soon forget, if fact it was the best excursion of our entire 21 day ""Journeys"" trip aboard the Carnival Dream. We highly recommend this excursion! Don't be left out and miss it!

Reviewer: TwoOldCruisers
We went out to Buck Island for some of the best snorkeling in the world. But it's the way we got there that made the day. The vessel is a true oceangoing yacht, 100 ft long and using the sails exclusively. It was quiet and elegant. After the snorkeling a really excellent 3 course meal was served and blender drinks of all sorts were handed out

Reviewer: Crazy for the Caribbean
This was a great day on the water. Enjoyed snorkeling in several secluded areas of St James and St John. The crew was magnificent, the food was very good and the beverages were spot on. This excursion was a a great value - over 6 hours on the water with all of the amenities. We were initially concerned about getting to the marina and back but the we just followed the instructions and didn't have any problems. We will certainly repeat this excursion during our next stop in St Thomas.

We took our very first cruise and were leary about booking an excursion outside the cruise line but it was Amazing! Our group of six had the most memorable time of our whole Caribbean cruise. The ship crew were there constantly attending to us offering up cold drinks and we had a great meal. They made us feel like royalty! Would definitely recommend this trip to everyone going to st Thomas St John is a must see! We actually ended up booking a snorkeling trip at another port of call and we were disappointed since we had a much better experience with this first trip!!!

5 StarsExcellent Sailing AdventureFebruary 12, 2012

Reviewer: SimpleFix
This was the best excursion we had on our cruise. The captain and first mate were amazing! They waited on us from start to finish and we always had a cold drink. There is plenty of snorkeling opportunity, with the first location Honeymoon Beach on St. John being the best. The second location, Christmas Cove, was also really neat. We got to touch a sea turtle! We were told that the later days of the week (Thursday through Saturday) are the better days to book this excursion because they are less busy. We only had 10 people on the boat, so it felt very spacious with plenty of room to walk around. Some days the boat can have as many as 45 people, which would have made it a different experience. If you are on a cruise ship and the departure time is 4:30 PM local time, please be advised that this excursion gets in at 3:45 PM and there is a 20 to 35 minute taxi ride back to Havensight Pier. We ended up having trouble getting the taxi driver to understand our urgency because he was waiting to fill his van, and we ended up making it back to the ship just in time (with a little running involved).

Captain and his crew were wonderful, very knowledgeable about the surrounding islands and waters. We are gold members aboard cruise line and this has been truly the greatest excursion to date. We even asked the captain if they had other sailboats on the other Caribbean islands, we suggest they should purchase another one for we will be re-booking on our next trip again in spring along with family and friends.

Guides were great and very knowledgeable. We had a six hour sailboat ride, stopping for snorkeling at two locations. This was marvelous and we saw quite a bit of sea life. Breakfast was muffins and juice and lunch was a variety of pasta, cheese, meatballs, salads and french bread. Open bar, so drinks were on the house. We had a little afternoon rain, but the Captain made our minor mishap really neat. I'd definitely do this one again.
