Jocelyn and Adele were excellent hosts! They made the cruise very friendly and relaxing. Great food and drinks, but most importantly, great conversation with two really nice people! Their dogs Buddy and Sophia welcomed us aboard with great enthusiasm too. If you are planning a sailing outing in the Virginia Islands, Oh Be Joyful is a must!!

This was our third time with Jocelyn (the first mate/ owner)) and Sophia ( the cutest and friendliest Jack Russell terrier I've ever held so she could nap). The boat is fantastic. We sail the Caribbean to all the good snorkeling spots. Haven't been to the same one twice yet. The prepared snacks and meal is spectacular. Highly recommend the... More

We had the wonderful opportunity of sail with Jocelyn for our private snorkeling experience in St. John, Jocelyn guiding us to the best places to see the beautiful coral and an abundance of beautiful fish. This has got to be one of the best experience in St. Thomas for anyone looking for a private snorkel trip, Jocelyn personal attention was... More

We sailed with Jo and Adelle yesterday and had a fabulous time. The food and drinks were excellent, but most importantly is that they went out of their way to make us comfortable, especially our youngest that was a little apprehensive! If you want to go off the beaten path and experience God's creation, this is for you!

We were thrilled and loved every bit of our 6-hour sail with Jocelyn, Captain Adele and their fur babies, Sophia and Buddy. This was one of the best things we did as a family while visiting St. Thomas in July. The hospitality that was shown to us was just unbelievable. The attention to detail and the care of our needs...

Took a private charter with another couple whom we were traveling with on 4/29/16. Had a great trip and would do it again without hesitation. Only thing I might change is to do the full day as opposed to a half day trip... it was that good. Great sail out, bar and drinks were great... snacks were great... had a... More

So many charters to choose from right? That's why you're reading my review....well here we go: Captain and crew were well prepared with drink, snacks, fruit, and a 4-star lunch that exceeded our expectations. Next, the sailboat was 44'with plenty of room, shade, bathroom, and could handle all sea conditions that arose. Now the trip....full sails, comfortable handling, two snorkel... More
