Our full and half day charters are custom, private charters. When you book a private charter, the boat is yours for the day - we do not mix groups on private charters. The only people on the boat besides your family and friends are the captain and perhaps a mate, but they won't be strangers for long. On a private charter, you call the shots when it comes to the itinerary and the day's schedule.
On group charters, you will share the boat with other folks not in your party. Group charters are priced per person and are "all inclusive". Group trips require a minimum of 4 people to run and have a maximum of 10 people. The only extra charge at the end of the trip is a gratuity for the captain.
3 Hour Tour: Snorkeling, Turtles, Beaches & Rum Punch
On our "3 Hour Tour" trip, we will allow you to experience the highlights of a full day charter in a condensed format. We limit the number of guests to 10 to avoid overcrowding which makes this group trip more intimate. The trip will be centered around St John and the National Park. The trip will begin with a leisurely tour of St John's north shore on our way to Maho Bay where you can swim with turtles. Next, we will continue on to one of our favorite spots to allow you to snorkel a beautiful, vibrant coral reef. We will wrap up the trip with a final stop at a beautiful cove with the prettiest turquoise water. You can swim in to a secluded beach, float on noodles while sipping a cold rum punch, or take a swim. The pace of this tour is relaxed so we will give you plenty of time at each of the stops. With the music playing, cold rum punch, and the natural beauty of islands, you will discover what it means to "lime" in the USVI.
Come aboard the 60′ sailing yacht Winds of Destiny for an all inclusive full day of sailing. Our professional Captain and Mate will typically sail to the Virgin Islands National Park around the north shore of St John as well as the surrounding islands for the best snorkel spots and beaches. We often stop at Maho Bay to swim with turtles as well as Christmas Cove (home of the famous Pizza Pi) to snorkel the wreck of a sunken sailboat. We provide light snacks and fresh fruit throughout the day as well as a fresh, homemade lunch, the Captain's drink of the day (Rum Punch and PainKillers are his specialty), and drinking water. There is no better way to experience the beauty of the US Virgin Islands than to immerse yourself in it with a day on the water.
