My girlfriend and I recently sailed with OnDeck for the first time. We were novices in the world of sailing and had an absolute blast. The crew was wonderful and we both had a great time learning the ropes. It was easy to see the crew truly enjoyed teaching us the art of sailing and their passion for the sport... More

I have sailed with On Deck 3 times now. Each time was an exhilerating experience. The crew, a captain and a mate, will teach you what you need to know to help sail the ship. Then you get a couple of practice tries and its on to racing. We had 2 members of our group that just wanted to go... More

We booked an excursion with On Deck through Carnival on a cruise in early February 2010. We are active people and had an absolute blast! The staff and crew were very friendly and helpful. We each had our ship "task" which made it really fun! They do give you the option to be an observer but for us, the experience... More

My wife went on an OnDeck tour two years ago and she convinced the rest of us to go with her this year. We were not disappointed. We were visiting St. Thomas on a Princess cruise and booked through the ship (they will not book outside the ship). Their representative met us on the pier and escorted us to the... More

My family of three booked the OnDeck Ocean race through Carnival for early February 2010. We were very impressed with the professionalism of all the staff and this organization. We had a total of four boats in the race with approx. 6 passengers on each boat excluding the captain and mate. This is not a glass bottom boat ride so... More

We have raced on St. Martin in the "retired" Americas Cup boats but this was way better. We had a team of 4 plus our skipper and mate. We raced against 3 other teams and it was a real experience. We really felt that they let us be part of the race. OnDeck will be our choice the next time... More

This was so much fun!!!!! This business went out of their way to make sure everything was organized and that we had an enjoyable adventure. The sailing staff was great and really wanted to be sure that we had a good time. It was also a bonus that we won the race. Go Rooster!! I agree with another reviewer --... More

We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into, but once on board Tom and Johnny explained everything to us. They were very patient and kind. We were travelling in February 2009 on the Princess Cruise Line and picked this excursion once we docked in St. Thomas. Once we were on board, Tom and Johnny gave us some instructions... More

I did this with my 2 teen age kids (18 and 19) - we had a blast. None of us knew anything about sailing at all - but the crew split up the jobs so that everybody had just enough that we could master the task we were assigned. They were very patient and funny. We were on a cruise... More

My family of four, including my 15 year old son and 12 year old daughter, did this excursion in December and we had such a great time! None of us had ever sailed so it was educational, too.
