St. Thomas St. John Snorkel/Sail Excursion Reviews

Sail from St. Thomas to nearby St. John for a relaxing afternoon on and in the water; offshore cays and reefs make St. John a premier stop for snorkeling.
Crew on the Catamaran were awesome and provided great information about the area.

We planned this excursion completely on our own. It was great... and it was easy. We took a taxi right off the ship that took us to the St. John's ferry and, from the ferry, a taxi took us to the St. John beach. We had a great time snorkeling and relaxing (very clear waters) and got back to the ship in plenty of time. Read Less

We had a good time; but the snorkeling was not that good.
Sail Date: October 2015
We had a good time; but the snorkeling was not that good. And, they could have given us a little longer at the beach without us being late back to the ship (you're only there for about an hour). I probably wouldn't book this tour

Be sure to listen and you will be fine.
Sail Date: October 2015
Be sure to listen and you will be fine. The water was beautiful. We saw Kenny Chesnee's house. My husband loved the snorkeling. The Champagne was freeflowing on the way back. Very lovely. Captian Theresa was awesome.

Despite a late start (word was the regular captain was hung over and a replacement needed to be found), the ship's crew were outstanding and made up for the delay. Beautiful ride to the snorkeling spot. Snorkeling itself was not as nice as we've done in Hawaii and Grand Cayman, but there were still a few critters to see. Snacks and drinks (rum punch anyone?) laid out for the return trip. The shuttle ride to/from the ship to the catamaran is about 30 mins and is a bit of a thrill ride. Please keep arms and legs inside the vehicle at ALL times! Read Less

This Champagne Catamaran Sail and Snorkel tour was okay. Conditions weren't ideal, with a swift current running, and the area where the catamaran moors is mostly sandy bottom.
