We went out on a windless day, something that doesn't happen often in St. John. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our time on the boat. It was a pleasure to talk to Justin and Pepper. They took us to a lovely spot to snorkel.

My husband and I found Sail Safaris via a blog and decided to book the full day sail to Jost. We were on Fly Girl and Justin the captain and Pepper his first mate were fantastic! We had a great time and I highly recommend them. We would have even loved to buy a shirt if they were available (hint,... More

My family and I had a fun day sailing around St. John. The water was a bit choppy that day but Justin and Pepper sailed to some calm coves for snorkeling. The deli lunch was delicious and Pepper makes the best Painkillers. I will definitely use Sail Safaris again. The reservation and confirmation process made scheduling easy.

Sailing with Sail Safaris was one of the best experiences we had on St John. Justin and Pepper made the experience unforgettable and worth every dollar. I highly recommend anybody who would like an upclose and personal sailing adventure to give Sail Safaris a try. You wont be handled like cattle and it will feel like your out on your... More

My wife and I went out with Justin and Pepper on Fly Girl. Nobody else was booked that day so we had a laid-back nice day with the boat to ourselves. Stopped to snorkel for a bit. Pepper joined us and showed us a lot of good spots. Could not have been a better day. I had some shade, too!... More

Our entire experience with Sail Safaris was amazing. Kellie was always prompt answering my many, many emails and was a pleasure to deal with. We did the full day trip to Jost Van Dyke on the Dell Rose (a beautiful sail boat!). Justin was one of the most chill people I have ever met! He fit right in with our... More

We chartered the full day local sail with Captain Justin and first mate Pepper. As previously mentioned they cater the sail for exactly what you want. I am learning to sail so I mentioned that and said I would like to do more sailing but we also love to snorkel. The weather was great and the wind perfect for sailing.... More

My husband and I booked a 1/2 day sail on Fly Girl while in the USVI this month and had a great time with Justin and Pepper. We happened to be the only people on the boat that day, so we basically got a private charter for our money. They took us to two fabulous snorkeling spots, where we enjoyed... More

We chartered the Sail Safaris' Dell Rose for our family of five -- four adults and a seven-and-a-half year-old girl, all novice snorkelers. Justin and Pepper were excellent crew and great guides, leading us to excellent snorkeling. Justin engaged with our teenage son, and Pepper's enthusiasm for snorkeling and the reef inhabitants was infectious. He was a wonderful instructor for... More
