Our Signature St. John USVI Sailing Trip
You’ll spend the day sailing, snorkeling or beachcombing aboard our luxury, private catamaran, Off Cay, in what we know will be the most memorable day of your vacation. We will greet you and your guests and depart from Cruz Bay, St. John. (Many of our guests stay on St. Thomas, and we’ll make it easy to connect, no matter where you’re staying.)
Welcome Aboard – Luxury Private Catamaran: We will welcome you aboard with an enticing spread of warm, freshly baked cinnamon rolls and a refreshing tropical fruit plate. We’ll even offer you a fresh-brewed cup of coffee, as one of the few charter boats in the USVI to offer this delightful brew. We can’t do without it, and we wouldn’t want you to! As you enjoy your morning snack, we’ll head to our first destination. St. John offers an amazing variety of bays, beaches and snorkeling experiences. Once you get on board, we’ll discuss your timing as well as the sea conditions to help choose the perfect itinerary for the day. Have a specific request? Let us know! We’ll do everything we can to accommodate you.
USVI Waters VI National Park Itineraries: One of our favorite itineraries starts with a sail along the north shore of St. John over the azure waters of the US Virgin Islands and VI Virgin Islands National Park passing by Caneel Bay Resort and the old Rockefeller compound. We’ll stop for lunch and a snorkel stop at either Waterlemon Cay in Leinster Bay or Mary’s Point, both in the Virgin Islands National Park and known for world class snorkeling, depending on which location offers you the best visibility and snorkeling conditions. Depending on timing, we may also stop at other locations such as Maho Bay (swim with the turtles on a guided turtle experience), Lovongo Cay, the Henley Cays, Sunset Point off the exclusive Caneel Bay Resort or one of the USVI’s amazing unspoiled white sand beaches. You’ll spend the day snorkeling, sailing, sightseeing and jumping into the crystal clear water from our 25’ wide swim platform.
If the weather and the wind send us west, as an alternative we can also head toward Great St. James to snorkel the protected marine reserve. There, you’ll find the Caribbean’s first floating pizza boat—Pizza Pi. We can also prepare lunch aboard for you. We tell you what the boat can do in the given time and beyond that, it’s your yacht for the day! Feel free to get in touch with us to discuss specific itineraries.
Catamaran Charter Choices: Many people choose a USVI cruise to maximize the time enjoying what the islands have to offer, rather than on our full day JVD BVI sailing charters wherein it is required to clear customs on the British and US sides. Additionally, our USVI Virgin Islands National Park snorkeling and sailing trip includes a light deli catered lunch, while our JVD BVI guests dine ashore. While you and your guests enjoy a guided snorkeling experience with our marine biologist captain, we’ll prepare a light deli lunch for your immediate enjoyment after you return to the boat. Additionally, for groups of up to 6, you may select a chef-prepared lunch from our menu options, for an additional fee.
USVI Sailing Charter Lunch Aboard: No matter your lunch choice, you can expect to dine at a full-sized table with full place settings and restaurant-style service. We think you’ll love dining in style aboard a luxury catamaran moored in an idyllic cove in the Caribbean! Please note that our top-shelf open bar is available for alcoholic beverages after the first snorkel stop while sailing in the USVI National Park per their license rules.
Customize your USVI sailing charter: It’s your yacht for the day! If you’d like to create a custom itinerary and enjoy lunch at shoreside resort or restaurant such as Caneel Bay, the Ritz-Carlton, Secret Harbor or the floating Pizza Pi boat, we will be happy to accommodate you. (Please note that any lunches ashore should be paid for directly by guests.) We’ve been sailing these waters for 17+ years, so we will show you the best day of your vacation, no matter where you decide to dine. Just get in touch with us for more details.
World Class Snorkeling St. John USVI – Gear & Instruction: As part of your first-class, luxury, private sailing experience, we offer expert snorkel gear and instruction, guided in-water snorkel experiences by our marine biologist captain and scuba-quality professional adult snorkel gear personally fitted for ease & comfortable use.
