Enjoy living on a 40 ft Beneteau sailing vessel in Great Cruz Bay on St. John. Sleep aboard in one of the two berths or bring friends or family and rent both rooms. Enjoy waking up on the water and planning your day. Hope to see you soon Captain Jim. I'm sorry to say Maria got the best of Luna and she went down!
The boat is equipped with snorkel gear for those interested in exploring the stunning coral and fisheries around the Virgin Islands. The boat also has two stand-up paddle boards for exploring the bays from above the water.
Interaction with guests:
The Captain and possibly one crew member will be on hand to sail the boat around to your desired destinations throughout the islands. For additional fee.
Fly into St. Thomas, taxi to Red Hook, ferry over to St John. I will meet you at the dock.
Luna is a cruising sailboat, and fully equipped for your safety and enjoyment. While on board, we have upper and lower deck with steps down into the salon. Also a boarding platform for climbing in and out of the dingy or the water. Please be aware of any physical limitations or medical issues.
Each berth is a double size like camping on the water. Linens and bath towels and beach towels are provided. The heads (bathroom) are marine-like with a sink, head, and shower all in one, and one outdoor shower off the back of the boat.
Pack very light - swim wear, cover ups, shorts, shirts, etc. We are very casual in the islands. Sandals & flip flops are needed when going ashore. We must keep sand off of the boat, unless you like sand in your bed, so all feet must be clean before boarding! Please bring all critical items like medications, travel documents, credit and ATM cards, cash, cameras, and phones. For US residents, phone service in the USVI is normal. Bring half of the clothes and twice as much cash!
Food & Meals:
I will provide coffee, snacks and bottled water. If meals are required to be prepared on the boat, we can go to the market upon your arrival to provision the boat with your food and beverage selections. The boat is moored next to The Westin for dining off of the boat or a taxi is available if you want to visit the local bars, restaurants and shops on the island.
Please ask any other questions directly to me via email or phone call. See you soon! Captain Jim
Remember, the use, transportation, or possession of illegal drugs or narcotics, including marijuana, or any other contraband or the participation in any other unlawful activity is strictly prohibited. No smoking on the boat, and please treat the boat with the same respect as you would in your own home.
I'm grew up in Sheridan, Indiana. After selling my business in Indiana, and because of my love for the water, warm weather and boating, I have moved to St John Island permanently. I love sailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, nature, history, sight seeing and just relaxing. A good rum drink while watching the sunset is a must!
