Vicky was an outstanding skipper who knows the oceanic terrain like the back of her hand and guided us to assist her when we wanted to. On the other hand, when we wanted to chill-ax, she and her assistant, Curvin, took over very competently. Her boat - a beautiful 40 ft racing boat - was very comfortable and small enough to get close to the water. We stopped at a pretty lunch spot and were able to snorkel and swim at our leisure. It was a spectacular day and we cannot recommend Vicky enough. She is a great find if you can get her! (Also an outstanding sailing instructor if you want that...)

My wife and I, both non-sailers, sailed with Ben and his first mate Kertney for about 4 hrs. It was a wonderful and exciting experience. They crew taught us novices a lot about sailing and eagerly answered every question we fielded about sailing, the boat, the area, their backgrounds, the sea, the weather, etc. Very nice guys and fun to share time with. I would and hope to do this again.

Absolutely fantastic, never done it before and we loved it. We were made very welcome and were taught the ropes.
After a good practice we were off tacking and jibeing under the guidance of the crew. Highly recommend doing this and what great value for money. Make sure you do this !!

I've gone sailing numerous times in some great locations in in the world. This sailing trip was one of the finest! My wife and I happened to be the only guests and so obviously it was an intimate and low key affair which is just what the pandemic doctor ordered! Captain Vicki is extremely upbeat, and gracious, and knowledgeable . She and her crew mate are clearly very experienced sailors. What you do on the sailboat is your choice. You can help out with the navigation as much or as little as you'd like- or not at all. We did some rope pulling hoisting the sails with clear/kind directions as the captain is also a phenomenal teacher as well! To be clear; this is not the cheapest way to get out on the water but it's also very "chill" and nothing like a party boat or a catamaran venture. This boat hauls ass! We brought our own lunch & beverages as well (FYI: There's really good food options at the marina if you want to grab n go to the boat). Other than that the day was full of fun conversation with the Captain (she's had a MOST interesting career!) and plenty of staring out into the skyline, feeling the wind & sun on our faces and enjoying the vessel being confidently navigated by the crew of two. I cant be emphatic enough; pony up the $ and book your trip with these guys (gal). You'll walk away in the end feeling a tremendous sense of joy from the experience and wont regret the cost in the least.

The winds were 25 mph with 3 foot rollers. The main was reefed. We all enjoyed time at the Healy and the skipper and mate kept a watchful eye while we sailed.

Very nice trip, really! Vic and her staff did great job and it was nice to be sailing after a while.
Only minus was that we were asked to pay extra after the sailing although we had booked the trip via TripAdvisor (Viator) and paid all the sum we were asked to. So we could not pay less than was asked. If the price is wrong in brokers ad the triporganizer should be dealing with broker and not make the client pay extra this way.

We had a fantastic day on the racing yacht Papaguyo. The crew were friendly and informative. Rodney Bay was a beautiful backdrop to a wonderful day. Three couples total and all six of us got several minutes at the helm. My daughter is going to be vacationing in St. Lucia next spring and I recommended that she and her fiance go on this excursion.

I was recently on holiday in St Lucia and was looking to get out sailing. My girlfriend and I have a little bit of experience, but going out on their race yacht gave us the opportunity to learn more as it’s quite different to what we have sailed before. The crew were very professional, going through all the safety procedures as we went out into the bay and then going through the techniques of sailing.

We did the half day trip which was great fun and I would definitely recommend it for anyone wanting to sail and learn a little whilst doing it.

My wife and I had never really done any sailing before so we wanted to go out and experience something new whilst on our honeymoon. We were a little nervous but we were given a full safety briefing and the crew made us feel relaxed and comfortable. We were introduced to the main areas of sailing a yacht and the most exciting thing was taking control of the helm, with the skipper always close at hand. We spent the morning sailing around the Rodney Bay area, enjoying the scenery and the excitement of being on the water. They also provide longer day sails so we took the opportunity to go down to Marigot Bay with them, stopping off for swimming and lunch at the beautiful beach there. I would definitely recommend First 4 Sail for an exciting, fun experience with professional crew.
