On March 26, 2017 myself and 2 friends went out with Jocelyn for a day of sailing, snorkeling, fun and sun. We were cruising on the Princess Regal and she just told us where to meet up with her via a cab. We were able to snorkel without the crowds and they took us to a great reef with lots... More

Jocelyn is a wonderful host and we loved our day sailing!! She is energetic and a wonderful host. She helped my mom who is 87 get on and off the boat so wonderfully! We went snorkeling and saw a fabulous array of fish and rays. It was a delicious and relaxing day with Jocelyn, Captain George, and Jocelyn's adorable dog,... More

We had a 3 1/2 day sailing and snorkeling trip. The sailing was so much fun, and we went away from the crowds to snorkel. Jocelyn was easy to work with, and provided a great snack of fruit, cheese, veggies and beverages. Loved the small group experience. Adele was a wonderful captain. Well worth the $$ and the taxi to... More

Best choice we could have made for a full day sail and snorkel trip off St. Thomas! The crew—Adele and Jocelyn—was skilled, knowledgeable, and super accommodating. The trip was uncrowded and relaxed. We sailed with a really fun small group, and got to choose how much of the day was spent snorkeling and how much was spent sailing. We got... More

I haven't had a sail like this...ever. We met the Jocelyn at P Dock in Red Hook and took a dingy to the sail boat. From then, the trip went above and beyond anything I could describe. I will summarize this sailing experience in three points! 1) great food! The pork chops are wonderful...grilled right on the boat! But there... More

Our family had a wonderful day sail with Jocelyn and her capable crew! The weather around St Thomas and St John was beautiful, and we enjoyed sailing and snorkeling, as well as delicious food and beverages on board. In fact my 22 year old daughter suggested that Jocelyn should open her own restaurant!! Jocelyn and her crew were friendly, gracious... More

We enjoyed a half-day sailing/snorkeling trip into the sunset with Jocelyn (the owner), and Adele (the Captain). While half-day, whole-day, and sunset sailing trips were advertised, when we asked if we could do a half-day trip and a sunset sail we were graciously accommodated. Jocelyn and Adele were a pleasure to hang out with. Both of them were very hospitable... More

Jocelyn and Adele were excellent hosts! They made the cruise very friendly and relaxing. Great food and drinks, but most importantly, great conversation with two really nice people! Their dogs Buddy and Sophia welcomed us aboard with great enthusiasm too. If you are planning a sailing outing in the Virginia Islands, Oh Be Joyful is a must!!
