One of the benefits of this multi-hull boat is that it's NOT designed for the cattle boat crowds associated with cruise ship tours. With a maximum of only 45-49 guests (and often sailing with fewer), there is no sardine feeling on this full-day "Sail and Snorkel" excursion to St. John. Another benefit of this St. Thomas excursion is the combination of speed and comfort. The captain tries to "take you off the beaten path" to show you some of those places you've dreamt about. Our expansive decks, shade awning, freshwater rinse and floats will satisfy your need for comfort".
Sailing from the east end of St Thomas, you will make your way towards the uninhabited barrier islands around the island of St John. Depending on the wind and water conditions that day, your captain will anchor you at the best snorkeling location that day. All snorkel gear, including fins, will be provided for you on this on this St. Thomas Sail and snorkel excursion. You will then have approximately 45 minutes to explore the underwater world of this tropical paradise.
Lunch follows, and the menu may include such items as turkey, ham, roast beef with Swiss & cheddar cheese, a selection of breads and rolls, potato and pasta salad, and a variety of condiments and trimmings.
In the afternoon, the captain will look for another perfect location for another session of snorkeling. After the snorkeling, the bar is open as your catamaran sails across the beautiful blue water towards home.
Andrew and Damon took good care of us on the 7 hour tour. Andrew found a couple of places for us to snorkel where we only shared the water with our 10 fellow catamaran passengers.
Mike and Ross were great hosts. They took time to explain what was to be expected of us on the trip and were very knowledgable of the lay of the land. Had ample time to snorkel, swim and explore at each stop along the way. Great time was had by all.

The best excursion of the 3 we took. Wonderful and helpful crew. fantastic sail. snorkel in 3 different locations. watching sea turtles swim and eat on the bottom of the ocean. plenty of time to snorkel. Great lunch served by the crew. fantastic drinks. I would fly to St.Thomas just to take this trip again.
