Believe the 5 star reviews! This excursion is wonderful. Captain Ron and Deb were so welcoming, helpful, interesting and engaging. Loved the beaches we snorkeled at - some of the best I’ve seen. My husband doesn’t snorkel so he lounged on the boat and talked fishing with the captain. Deb prepared a delicious lunch for us. Easily my best day in the VI. If you’re considering a sail with them I highly recommend it!

Our crew (2 adults, 3 kids) had a wonderful day sailing with Captain Rob and First Mate Deb. We saw so many colorful fish and even got to swim with turtles! Lunch was really good crab cakes and salad made by Deb. We also had a great time relaxing on the deck and watching the waves roll by. Pick up and drop off was easy and convenient. The wind gave out during the second half of our journey, so we had to use the motor . Highly recommend!

We had a wonderful time with Captain Rob and Deb. We all like sailing, the peacefulness and quietness of it. We did two snorkels off the boat at places Rob chose with our input. Super great. Ded made a fantastic lunch of crab cakes. It was so nice to just have our family and them on the boat. Made it special. Would highly recommend for a memorable Virgin Islands experience.

My wife and I had an amazing time during our full-day private charter on Cosmos. Rob took us around to the top snorkeling spots on St. John, and Greater St. James. We had a blast. The team was very communicative beforehand and are overall, very knowledgable about the islands, weather, and sailing (of course!).

During the day, we were able to see some amazing wildlife and the boat was super fun to be on. The crew also serves lunch and drinks, We would recommend bringing (or buying) a long-sleeve SPF shirt, hat, and cream sunscreen to best enjoy your trip on the Cosmos.

An absolute fantastic day of sailing with Rob and Deb on the Cosmos. Deb was wonderful and efficient in the booking and followup to have everything planned and worry free. We were served a gourmet lunch with Lumpo Crab cakes and fresh salad. Rob was great to chat with and historian of the USVI. Ive booked many sailboat cruises from Barbados, S Florida, Cayman Island, SF Bay, etc. This was the best one. Such great people to hang with for the day. Hope to Sail again soon. Could not imagine a better sailing trip out of St Thomas.

Perhaps an invite to make the trip South in August?? :))

My husband and I sailed with Deb and Rob yesterday on a private half day sail and snorkel. What a treat! Rob and Deb live on their beautiful sail boat and it was so lovely to be welcomed aboard their home and enjoy the morning.

The weather towards St. John was too rainy so we sailed to Great St James (where the weather was paradise!) and snorkeled at Christmas Cove. The sail to Christmas Cove was stunning. The water was so blue. We sat on the front of the sailboat on the comfy seats and just enjoyed the breeze and views! We snorkeled the coral reef and saw tons of fish, squid, beautiful coral and stingrays!

Deb and Rob are amazing and accommodating. They are very easy going. From booking and planning the trip to the day of, everything was simple, communicated, clear, and effortless. We were even able to change our sail from a group sail to a private sail at the last minute for COVID safety.

I wouldn’t hesitate to sail The Cosmos again but next time will do a full day because I was sad when it ended! This is a must do when in St Thomas!

Rob and Deb were professionals. From planning all the way up to the day of, they were friendly, and extremely flexible. For example, they added only a very modest surcharge to pick us up from St John instead of their normal St Thomas location. In regards to the COVID situation, they were cautious. They have detailed knowledge of the whole eastern Caribbean. They have great snorkel spots, and Deb’s crab cakes are the best we’ve ever had! The beautiful sailboat is in great condition!

Better than 5 stars. Rob and Deb made our Caribbean dreams come true with a beautiful roomy boat and detail to customer service! What a day/s! They took us to a fantastic snorkel spot and had just the right amount of snacks and beverages. If you want an 'away from the crowds' sailing experience this is it!!! Best value for your money.
IT WAS SUCH A GREAT EXPERIENCE WE WENT OUT A SECOND TIME DURING OUR VACATION!!!
Thank you Rob and Deb for memorable days!!!

My husband and I spent an incredible day aboard the Cosmos with Deb and Rob! We were a little nervous getting back into snorkeling, but they gave us great instruction and helped us into and out of the water. Christmas Cove was a spectacular location to snorkel first. Then we sailed to another cove on St. John and Deb prepared some delicious crab cakes and salad for lunch. We snorkeled more after lunch. My husband spotted a sea turtle and ray, but I didn't see any. So after climbing back aboard Rob was determined to show me a turtle. He ran me back out on the dinghy and we spotted one right away. I jumped in and got to hang out with the cute little guy and even swam with him!

It was an amazing day with enjoyable conversation, beautiful views, and plenty of wine! We would definitely Sail the Cosmos again!
