Looking to add some adventure to your St John vacation? Then you’ll want to consider a sailing, snorkeling and sightseeing trip aboard one of the many charter boats based in St Thomas and St John. As you might expect, each boat, captain and crew have their own personalities. Some cater to adults – with stops at some of the famous beach bars and watering holes like Soggy Dollar, Willy T, and Foxy’s. Some boats are geared toward families and snorkeling/sightseeing. We’ll leave it to you to decide what type of day you’d like on the water.
“There’s nothing like discovering St John’s stunning beaches from the water!”
One of our favorite charters is Salty Dog Sailing. Captain Justin, Capt. Susan, Captain Stephen, Capt Kelly, crew Pepper, Cat and Admiral Jake and sailor Sandy have plenty of experience and time on the water! Guests can choose between a classic monohull, Selkie, or luxurious catamaran, Little Dog. Each boat offers guests a unique way to explore and discover the USVIs and BVIs.
Classic Monohull Sloop
If your idea of vacation memories includes the sounds of a classic sailing sloop under full sail – then Selkie is the perfect way to spend a full or half day. Selkie is a traditional classic monohull sloop that’s been painstakingly restored. Guests can see and visit snorkeling beaches and bays much as the earliest discoverers did – by sea.
Looking for a full day or half day of snorkeling, sailing and sunbathing that includes luxury and comfort? Then their catamaran, Little Dog, delivers! Guests will enjoy the stability and comfort of a catamaran experience. From shaded seating and dining area for up to 12 guests to the 25′ swim platform and our new front trampoline netting for sunbathing – nothing compares to the comfort and space of Little Dog!
FULL DAY & HALF DAY CharterS
Salty Dog Charters offers half day St John snorkeling tours. Your Captain knows the waters surrounding St John and the Virgin Islands National Park. Depending on your experience, weather and conditions you might even explore some of the small cays that sit just of St John’s North Shore!
Full day charter adventures can be planned for the USVIs or BVIs. Your Captain will plan the perfect day depending on your interests, the conditions and weather on the day of your charter.
Sunset Sailing Charters
Celebrate the setting of the sun with Salty Dog aboard our traditional cutter S/V Selkie or sporty St. John sailing catamaran S/V Little Dog. We offer an open bar of beers, rum punch, sodas & water.
