Silmaril Sailing was the best thing my husband and I did on our trip to Peter Island in BVI. Jason the captain is an incredible and experienced sailor who knows what he's doing. He made the day trip very individualized and fun and took us snorkeling in different local places. This is definitely worth doing if you are in the... More

We went day sailing with Jason and Lindsay on May 2, 2017. Terrific day!! This is our probably our 10th day sail on the Silmaril. We started with the previous owners thirteen years ago. The current owners, Jason and Lindsay, a delightful couple. In addition to day sails, they do overnight sails.

In 2016 one of my Godchildren came to Peter Island for his honeymoon and went out for a day with Jason and Lindsay on Silmaril. He enjoyed the day so much that he immediately booked them for a second day the same trip - and has raved about it ever since. I visited again with another Godson and his girlfriend... More

Our goal was to have an introduction to chartering and all that is involved before booking the certification courses. We were cursed with travel gremlins from the beginning with a conflict in sail times easily adjusted by Lindsay, but then LIAT cancelled our flights, and almost everything had to be adjusted, but it didn't matter - Lindsay responded to all...

Could not have had a better day of sailing. Jason was kind enough to delay our sail for one day due to very high winds. This was the best advice and our Saturday sail just turned out perfectly. We took his advice and had lunch at Norman Island which was fun and very much enjoyed the snorkeling. What we loved... More

We had done sunset and day sails on the Silmaril and loved them so much that this time we chartered a three day, two night, sail. Jason customized our itinerary perfectly and planned exactly what we envisioned. Jason and Kyrie joined us in activities or made themselves discreet at just the right times. Truly a classy, fun, and adventure all... More

We spent a fabulous day on the beautiful Silmaril with Jason and Kyrie. it was a wonderful, peaceful way to enjoy the beautiful Caribbean. Jason and Kyrie were entertaining, kind and so knowledgeable about the art of sailing. We would highly recommend the enchanting Silmaril.

Amazing day with Jason and Kyrie aboard the beautiful Silmaril. Awesome sailing, snorkeling and lunch. They are very knowledgeable and fun. We have been on several other sailboats, but this one is special.
