Great crew, great boat, fantastic day out on the water. I highly recommend making Endeavour II a part of your trip to Jost or Tortola!

We went out on the Endeavour on a windy, overcast day, and we still had a great time! It felt like having a private tour guide, since the boat was built and sailed by locals. Despite the chilly water, Susan jumped into the water with...More

Endeavor II is a modern example of the historic, locally built Island Sloops. They were used to transport livestock, goods and most importantly, rum between the islands. I have not actually been for a sail on her, but I did spend 2 weeks working on...More

I used to live in St. John and many day boats pack you in to the point that you feel like cattle. Sailing on Endeavour II is more like having your own private sailboat for the day. Sandy Cay is one of the most beautiful...More
