ShoreTrips says...

With the wind in your hair and the sun at your back, set sail for a very special trip aboard this 44 foot sailing yacht.

This is the real deal...a beautiful sailboat with spacious decks, padded cushions and a shaded cockpit. Find yourself a comfy spot as your experienced, friendly captain and first mate head out into the sparkling waters of the Caribbean. You'll find unparalleled views of the coastline and secluded cays that dot the seascape en route to St. John.

With exceptional snorkeling all around, it's time to don your gear and discover the underwater world that awaits. If you're new to snorkeling, your helpful crew will be happy to provide instruction. The snorkel stop will be based on your preference and level of experience, but rest assured no matter the location, you'll find the warm, clear waters teeming with dazzling coral, brightly colored fish, stingrays and turtles. Or if snorkeling isn't your "thing", go for a swim or stay on board and catch some rays.

After snorkeling, there will be delicious snacks waiting for you on board. Enjoy a cold soft drink, fruit or rum punch and relax.

As you make your way back to St. Thomas, see what it feels like to be a real sailor and help your captain hoist the sails. Feel the wind as it fills the canvas, propelling the boat through the water. This is why you came to the Caribbean!

"On a day when the wind is perfect, the sail just needs to open and the world is full of beauty. Today is such a day." Rumi (13th century Persian poet)
