What You Can Expect

Coral Bay Day Sail in St John

Explore St John by boat!

Make your way to the Dinghy Dock, located behind Skinny Legs Restaurant and Bar, and board your sailing vessel, the Pepper, at 9:30am. Local builders in Coral Bay designed this sleek, custom-built island sloop. The traditional sailboat, which features Spanish cedar planking and a fiberglass hull, includes an outboard rudder with tiller steering.

Relax on the large open deck with comfortable bench seating on yellow cushions as your captain charts the waters of Coral Bay. See the little-traveled south shores of St John as the boat’s owners show your small group around and tell you a bit about the area’s history. Just be ready to lend a hand with sails or to take the rudder — no experience necessary!

Along the way, you’ll stop for a swim at a pristine spot in the turquoise Caribbean Sea. If you’ve brought snorkel gear, jump in for a guided 1-hour snorkel tour. Your memorable sailing tour of St John includes complimentary cocktails and soft drinks with a homemade picnic lunch on board, prepared fresh with gourmet ingredients.
