The Gulf Coast / Sanibel and Captiva are perfect places for cruising and yachting. Surrounded by warm, tropical seas, it’s no surprise that water sports, fishing and getting close to the stunning marine wildlife are all popular pastimes. Each island offers something a little different; from the best restaurants to scenic gems or historical treasures, we can ensure that your day includes a selection of personalized adventures that showcase this unique location wonderfully well. We have a number of different itineraries from which to choose, or why not let us know where you would like to go and we can create a customized tour to meet your requirements?
We Aim To Provide a Personalized Service
Our vessel, the Blue Mystic, provides a well-appointed, high grade yachting experience. From the time you step on board, greeted with Prosecco by our friendly crew, to the time you disembark, our aim is to make every moment spectacular. A day’s charter is suitable for family groups, friends or couples. We are always happy to tailor the itinerary to your needs – just tell us what you’d like to do and we’ll be delighted to accommodate you. Typically, a day trip includes time for snorkeling at Maho Bay followed by a stop at Jost Van Dyke for a mid-morning snack and some time to explore the island. With attractions such as the Bubbly Pool, Soggy Dollar Bar, Sandy Spit and Norman Island, there is no shortage of beautiful locations to enjoy. A number of excellent restaurants provide inviting lunch options, before spending time on the beach, snorkeling (we recommend the Caves and Indians for particularly spectacular sport), swimming or simply exploringthe islands.
When you opt to sail with us, you’re not our clients, you’re our valued guests. As such, we do everything we can to make you feel welcome and provide a spectacular day out. We can suggest the best places to visit and also offer opportunities for snorkeling, swimming or hiking. Visitors have the chance to spend time on many of the most well-known United States Virgin Islands (USVI) and British Virgin Islands (BVI), including Jost Van Dyke, Tortola, Saint Thomas and SaintJohn.
A Full Day of Activities
The islands are well-known for their spectacular scenery, friendly people and excellent cuisine. We want to share the magic of the islands with you, showing you the hidden treasures and little known beauty spots that are characteristic of this intriguing area. Whether you want to sample freshly cooked, local delicacies at one of the leading restaurants in the area, or would prefer to take a sea tour looking for local wildlife, we are happy to customize your day to include the things which are important to you. We can pick you up from either Saint Thomas (at the Marina) or Saint John (from the National Park Dock).
Our charter service includes fuel, snacks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, along with any equipment you might need (by prior arrangement). There’s no need to worry about organizing an itinerary, advance booking at restaurants or spending hours trying to discover the best locations for beach fun or water activities. We do all this for you, so all you have to do is climb aboard and enjoy a spectacular day that’s packed with interest and excitement. Remember that if you’ve got a particular hobby, we can accommodate that within our schedule. For example, if history is your passion, we could arrange a trip to St. Croix – well-known for its intriguing architecture and colorful legacy as the former Danish West Indies capital. Alternatively, we could stop off at Water Island – the smallest island in the chain, and one which boasts an exciting history due to its associations with pirates.
Convenient Booking Process
We do everything we can to make sure that our booking process is as straight-forward and user friendly as the rest of the experience we offer. Depending on where you’re located, we can arrange to pick you up from either the Saga Haven Marina on St. Thomas or from the National Park Dock in Cruz Bay, St. John. The address for the St. Thomas pick up point is 6117 Estate Frydenho, Red Hok, St. Thomas, USVI 00802. The National Park Dock is a prominent feature on St. John so you should have no trouble reaching it in time for departure, which is usually at 08:45. The day charter does not include gratuities or customs charges, so you will need to make provision for these before boarding.
Prices start from around $4,950 for the day, but vary dependent on group numbers, proposed itinerary and a number of other variables. We pride ourselves on offering fair, transparent pricings, offering exceptional value for money and an exemplary service to our guests.
To ensure you get the most from your day cruise, it’s helpful to contact us beforehand to discuss your expectations and let us know group numbers. Please tell us anything we can do to enhance your time with us and we will be happy to oblige. For further information or to book, call Captain Ted at (340) 642-2777.
