What Our Guests Have To Say

“Hello Cap’t Dave, Stephanie and I were talking, back home unfortunately, about what a memorable sail we had with you. Great food, great boat, great snorkeling, awesome sea dog as well as a courageous snorkel guide and captain all in one trip. Who could ask for more. We’ll remember and talk about our day sail with you for years. Hope to sail with you again.”

“Dear Capt. Dave: Many thanks for the terrific day on the Johanna Augusta II last week. Charlie & Suzy Burke, Kathleen and I had a blast and it was the highlight of our week. I gave Barbara (a bartender at the Coconut Cove Bar at the Ritz) some brochures and told her about our great day and asked her to spread the word. I took some brochures home and will talk it up with anyone I hear of that’s heading your way. I also stuck some in a “things to do” rack at the airport. Thanks again and let me know if you need any assistance getting scarce / odd items from the mainland.”
Vince Sullivan

“Just a note of thanks for the sailing day Sunday (feb 12th). Lori, Stuart, and I had a great time. It was the highlight of our trip. Great boat, food, drinks, snorkeling, and hospitality. We really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and the effort you spent making the day so enjoyable. Plus you took us to some great spots. Sometimes you pick something off of the web and really get lucky….. We all appreciate it, and I personally wish you the best. We hope to see you again when we get back to St Thomas.”

Kitty Martz
“My husband and I just returned from a wonderful week in the US Virgin Islands, and to top off the end of our honeymoon, we wanted to navigate the crystal clear waters on a day cruise. We were so lucky to find your pamphlet which advertised a day trip on your beautiful yacht. Not only was it smooth sailing but you brought us to some of the best snorkeling spots and you & wheezy were the perfect host with your delicious menu. Thanks again for making this trip a memorable occasion.”
Newly Weds
“Where have you been all our lives! Fabulous time!”
Harris Family
“You will be so happy you booked with Captain Dave and his Oh Be Joyful sailing yacht. We ran across Captain Dave quite by accident, but we are so happy serendipity intervened! The ship was comfortable, the Captain was excellent and the first mate, Sophia the Rat Terrier, was 8 pounds of pure joy. We loved the personal attention (it was just the two of us that day)- with great music on the stereo, blue skies and beautiful snorkeling at wonderfully diverse locations. And the gourmet food was excellent. Fond memories of a delightful day.”
Wendy and Clay Smith
“Dave, we had such a blast and really wanted to extend our thanks to you guys for providing us with a wonderful wedding reception!! The day of the wedding we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful and enjoyable sail and lunch! The food rocked (Dave, you are an awesome cook!) and the drinks were wicked awesome. We were so thankful that you both took the time to have fun with us as well and we hope that you enjoyed every minute just as much as we did! We are happy to be able to call you both friends and not just “the people we went sailing with”. We appreciate everything you did for us and the experiences you gave us will last our whole lifetime!! Thank you guys again for everything you did for us!!”
