    Morningstar Sailing & Power Charters
    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    Our experiences here in the islands lend to showing you all the very best the islands have to offer and the greatest value for your dollar. We have upgraded our location to the premier and convenient location of Cruz Bay St. John which is commonly agreed to be the nicest port in all the islands. Our tiny chain of islands use boats for public transportation in place of bridges which is super convenient. Departing from this amazing location allows our guests to explore the most beautiful waters available as well as venture in to the most attractive "Little City" in all the USVI. We plan for a 5 hour adventure beginning at flexible times to accommodate your party. This will allow for you to be dropped via taxi at the ferry terminal in Red Hook on the East End of St Thomas, closest to the passenger commuter ferry ($8.00) which takes 12 minutes to arrive at Cruz bay. Once you arrive your crew will be waiting for you 20 steps away, on the beach immediately off the dock from the convenient passenger ferry. (NO ADDITIONAL TRANSFERS REQUIRED) Once you meet your crew, you will board our inflatable tender and to be delivered to our very calm anchorage and 40 foot long, all inclusive, sailboat. Departing from Cruz bay allows us a wonderful day on the water and multiple options for destinations as well. After sailing here in the islands for the past 18 years we have realized that Cruz bay lends to the best experiences for our guests. Thousands of our guests from the past several years have been cruise ship passengers and they have enjoyed our quiet, beautiful, less populated depart point. Our premier location is away from the crowds and is home to the "island culture" and "island vibration" we believe our guests are looking for. Your day with us will be absolutely wonderful. Departing from St. John's protected western shoreline provides the perfect venue for our guests to enjoy the serene blue waters to relax and sunbathe or take the helm of our 40 foot long, spacious sail boat. We will set our course for a protected bay on one of the many cays nearby for a quiet secluded anchorage. At this first stop you will be fitted with the equipment needed to enjoy amazing snorkeling with huge sea turtles. (Snorkeling equipment is included in your day with us). After snorkeling, swimming and enjoying the sun for a while (enjoying complimentary snacks and mixed drinks as well as beer soda, juice, water and more) we will head to a second stop where you will be able to swim with more amazing sea life and comb the white sandy beaches of some of the most incredible shoreline on the planet. A full lunch will be available as we are working closely with North Shore Deli. We will ask you to choose from the following options we have available. • #1 - Celi Corned Beef ◦ Thinly sliced & dipped in jus on a sub roll • #2 - Roast Pork ◦ Topped with sauteed kale and poblano peppers and provolone • #3-The DJ ◦ Hot roast beef with Swiss, mushrooms and onions. • #4 - Smoked Turkey & Bacon ◦ Served w/ cheddar, lettuce, tomato, onion & a valley doll sauce on a ciabatta roll • #5-TurkeyPesto ◦ w/ Havarti & roasted red peppers • #6 - B.L.T. ◦ Thick-cut bacon & spinach on ciabatta roll • #7 - Pirate Piggy ◦ Roast pork, ham, Swiss, pickles, housemade mustard pressed on sub roll. • #8 Greek style flatbreads ◦ Roasted chicken or portabella mushroom topped with tomato, lettuce, feta and tzatziki • Vegan: hummus, cucumber, lettuce, tomato, onion, banana peppers • #9 Veggie burger ◦ roasted red pepper, garlic aioli, spinach tomato onion on a ciabatta bun. **Bread / Spinach Wrap are also available as substitute for traditional bread. ****Please note that salad option’s are available as well... Our relaxed itinerary and this optimized schedule allows for our day sail to finish in Cruz bay at at scheduled time providing you with more than enough time to conveniently catch the ferry back to St Thomas. Upon arriving at the ferry terminal, the Virgin Islands Taxi association will greet your to delivery you back to you cruise ship port.

My boyfriend and I went on the sunset sail with Captain Mike and his first mate Hendley. This was definitely the highlight of our trip the US and British Virgin Islands. Amazing food, drinks (PAINKILLERS) and fun facts by Mike. I expected to share the sailboat with 15+ people

We found a hidden gem!! We wanted to do a sunset sail with our daughter but didn’t want to pack on a sailboat with 30+ other people. Morningstar was perfect because it was us and another couple and we really felt like we were on our own private sail. It was relaxing and the

Hands down, this is the best way to relax and appreciate the beauty of the Virgin Islands! It was great to get out on the water and go sailing with Mike & Bridget. The boat is a classic in my eyes. Very comfortable with more than enough room for the 3 couples we had on board

We had two fantastic sunset sails with Morningstar Charters. This was such a wonderful way to experience the beautiful sunsets in St John and we had such a meaningful experience we decided we needed to see another sunset on board. Mike made everyone in our group feel at ease
