What to expect
An Unforgettable Sailing Experience, Just for You. There is no end to what you can see while sailing with Virgin Islands Day Sailing. Join us as we explore the most breathtaking locations around the Virgin Islands. Create timeless memories as you experience spectacular sailing destinations with those you love. Full day excursions depart from our slip in Sapphire Beach Marina, St. Thomas at 9:00 am (You can board as early as 8:30) with a return at 4 pm. If everyone is on-board early, we’ll get an early start. ​Enjoy the sights and our open bar as we sail. Our destination will be the St. John National Park and the picturesque surrounding cays. You will have the chance to discover why many say that St John offers some of the best snorkeling and swimming locations in the Virgin Islands. ​We usually try to hit two different locations with a fresh grilled lunch served between stops. Our locations will be picked based upon the wind, weather and crowd conditions. Our goal is to stay away from the stops that are frequented by the cruise ship excursions. Please contact us directly for private or custom tours or if our celebrating a special occasion.

Fantastic experience worth every penny
Jun 2021 • Couples
Fantastic experience, Captain Alex and Mark were awesome. Captain Alex is like an encyclopedia when it comes to the USVI I learned a ton and had a great time seeing sea turtles and other cool sea life. Thank you! This is absolutely worth the price

Felt like a private sailing experience
We sailed with Mark and Alex on the 25th of May and they were amazing captains and hosts! Great boat, clean and outside of a great sail they were ell educated on sailing, the local surroundings and overall good conversation around the journey. They put us on the front mooring right for great viewing of turtles and a beautiful snorkel. I personally value the intimate and smaller journey and experience of 6 people over a large “Cattalemaraan”. No sea sickness, great hosts, food, beverage and interaction. Do yourself a favor book smaller and enjoy the experience with a small group of friends or family. Thanks again!!

This trip right here, this is the one to do. So relaxing, the food was beyond delicious, way beyond what we expected, and Pat and John were the best. We enjoyed snorkeling in beautiful blue water and spotting turtles and sting rays in addition to other really cool fish made the trip perfect.

Full Day Sailing plus Sunset – Dinner included!
May 2021
This was a perfect way to explore the waters between Saint Thomas and Saint John. The sailboat, Frances Anne, was spotless, roomy, and safe. The crew of Mark, Captain Alex and Jess made us feel right at home and kept us well hydrated. Mark and Alex shared their local knowledge and stories as we sailed to Maho Bay in Saint John. Jess, a recent master's graduate from the University of Virgin Islands, shared her expert knowledge about marine life we were viewing. Our itinerary consisted of a stop at Maho Bay for snorkeling with turtles and rays, snacks before sailing to our next stop on a coral reef for more snorkeling, dinner, then sailing back to port while the sun sets. Our crew was awesome and entertaining, the sailing was fun, the stops delivered sights we will always remember, and the food and drinks were top notch. My college age daughter summed it up - this was her favorite thing we did during our week in Saint Thomas.

Turtles and Rum
May 2021 • Couples
One of the most incredible experiences of my life. Mark and Alex provided the PERFECT atmosphere for a PERFECT day. Swam with sea turtles, ate a delicious lunch, drank rum punch, and got an insiders scoop on different restaurants and activities to do while in St. Thomas. If you’re looking for a personal sailing excursion that includes turtles, good conversation, and alcohol this is your tour. Already planning our next trip that will absolutely include a day dedicated to Virgin Islands Day Sailing.

Perfect Day
We set sail with Mark and Alex and had a blast! They were super personable and took us to some great locations for snorkeling! While we were out swimming with sea turtles they were busy preparing us a delicious meal for lunch. On the way back to the dock we enjoyed rum punch and many laughs! I would encourage anyone to take a trip with this crew!
