Owner description: Get ready to experience the beauty and laid back rhythm of the Virgin Islands on this exclusive half-day sail from St. Thomas to the enchanted Island of St. John. Enjoy the thrill and excitement of sailing the Caribbean before swimming, snorkeling and relaxing on "Honeymoon Beach," one of St. John's picture-perfect palm-fringed white sand beaches. As you make the down wind return sail to St. Thomas take the wheel and learn the ropes, or just reflect on a perfect day as our crew spoils you with complimentary champagne, beer, rum punch, and cheese & fruit platters.

My wife and I cruise at least once a year. We went on the new MSC Seaside, which by the way is a beautiful ship. It’s an Italian cruise ship that has everything, except good food. You would think that an Italian ship would serve really good pasta! Ha what a laugh! We choose to join the Yacht Club, somewhat like first class, but for the money it’s not worth it. The crew is good and bad depending who is going above and beyond or just muddling through. Rae our butler and our waiter Philip and his helper Lyndon were wonderful. The entertainment was spectacular. Like I said the ship is beautiful and and most of the crew makes the trip great, but they need cooking lessons! What a shame for such an Italian ship.

Went on Castaway Girl 3 for a sailing and snorkeling excursion with Capt Ryan and his awesome crew. They were great with my 2 young kids (5 and 8), and the grown-ups (free-flowing rum punch after our snorkel). It was a lovely sailing and snorkeling excursion that still left us plenty of time to enjoy St Thomas.

Captain Ryan, Serena, CJ and Jake the crew of the Castaway Girl 3 made this whole experience awesome
Great introduction to the tour with a very informative briefing
Ice water and cold juice served on a fairly quick ride to the snorkel locations
Great guides in the water and wonderful service on the ride back
Highly Recommend this tour from any cruise ship stopping in St Thomas

Recently did a shore excursion whilst cruising on the Saphire Princess Asian Cruise.
The shore excursion was in Thailand and 2 hours at Kata Beach then 2 hours st Patong beach. As princess cruises are an average age of over 50’s this excursion was not suitable. Kata beach has no shelter from the heat and the few restaurants or shops were all open air and no air conditioning for relief. This part of the excursion was terrible. Then at Patong it was rushed and less than 2 hours available. Should have just been about 4 hours at Patong where there was a shopping complex, the beach and multiple restaurants all air conditioned.

I have dived on reefs so colorful and teaming with creatures before this that I guess anything less is disappointing. The reef we went to was a bunch of rocks with a few sea plants attached with a small number of fish. There was one turtle with a dozen people in pursuit. In Hawaii you can see several turtles off the beach or just wade in. At the two locations we stopped to snorkel there were so many boats and people it was hard to move without bumping into someone. One person from our boat got on one of the other tour boats. Maybe this is more a comment about the poor snorkelling available around St Thomas than this tour company. The captain and crew were professional, helpful and friendly. The boat was nice so we enjoyed the drinks and sailing but the snorkelling not so much.
