Owner description: For those seeking a more intimate sailing and yacht charter experience, away from the hustle and bustle of larger boat tours Jus' Sail offers the very best laidback Caribbean Sailing along the stunning St Lucia coast aboard ~ Good Expectation ~ a lovingly restored wooden Carriacou Sloop, the traditional trading vessel of the West Indies with a cultural heritage dating back over 175 years. Learn to sail, chill out on our wide open decks lounging in oversized beanbags whilst the wind carries us along under sail, snuggle up on a romantic sunset cruise, or explore out of the way coral reefs & deserted beaches, Jus' Sail guarantee a fabulous sailing experience. Small groups & private sailing charters available.

We spent the day sailing with James and Pepsi on our recent vacation to St Lucia, and I'm so glad we did. Despite some less than cooperative weather during our visit, we got to get out on the beautiful St. Lucian waters with some great people. Our family of four, which includes two teenagers, would all agree that this was the highlight of our trip. James was very easy to work with; from our initial email contact until the end of the day (and even after!), service and response time was exceptional. He was prompt in answering questions and detailing events and had great ideas for us. Pepsi made sure we wanted for nothing and took great care of us! We didn't want a crowded, commercialized boating day; we wanted quiet, personalized, exceptional service in a beautiful natural setting--and that's exactly what we got. We would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who is looking for a special time on the water. We felt special!

My sister and her partner were getting Married in St Lucia and I wanted to find them a special trip, something that they would remember forever.

After contacting a few companies I came across Jus' Sail, and I am so pleased to have found the best company ever!

With just a few emails to James he was able to put together a package that he promised a couple will never forget, and he kept his word 100%. Me being based in the UK I was worried there would be issues with arranging this trip, but I was wrong. James arranged all the logistics; picking them up from their hotel, ensuring they had an amazing time and returning them to the hotel at the end of the day.

In talking to the newly weds their feedback proved that James really stuck to his word.

"That was literally the BEST day ever! We want to thank you all so much. It was amazing from start to finish and the crew were brilliant! Thank you for organising the most special trip we have ever been on. "

You and your crew have clearly excelled yourselves and I'm so pleased that I came across your company.

If your looking to book a private charter, look no further!

Dear Benny,
Thank you so much for taking time out to write us a review.
Organising the day for your sister and husband was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. We are always honoured when family and friends choose to give one of our experiences as a gift to newly weds honeymooning on the island, which means we take the organisation of the charter very seriously, as we understand its importance!
We hope to welcome you aboard yourself at some point in the future!
Best wishes.
The Jus' Sail Team.

We booked a private charter for 6 people with James and Pepsi and from the onset the experience was incredibly relaxed and easy going. 2 of our six were about 15 minutes late which did not seem to phase James at all. He made the day was about us and was happy to wait. The relaxation continued aboard with delicious rum punch, garlic humus and piton. Personally, mastering fender rodeo was my highlight. Highly recommend this as a must do in St. Lucia. James and Pepsi give a lot back to the community and are amazing people to spend a day on vacation with.

The highlight of our trip! James, Pepsi and Herbie exceeded our expectations!

We were traveling with a party of 8 including our two young children ages 3 and 5. The crew of the Good Expectation were fabulous and a great time was had by us all. I am sure if we were an adults only trip we would have had an equally great trip with a little different spin so to say.

James made certain our kids were safe in well fitting life jackets and Pepsi made sure we were all well hydrated and had as many snacks as we could want. Pepsi certainly makes the best rum punch on the island (trust me we sampled quite a few recipes during our stay) and I still want to know where she got those banana chips! The entire crew has a great knowledge of sailing and the island as a whole and is ready to share it. Just veg out on deck or be part of the crew! We took a half day cruise (about 4-5 hours) out or Rodney Bay down to a little traveled cove for some snorkeling and good time lounging in the water. We were not sure how our 3 year old son was going to do on the cruise so we only booked a half day. I wish we would have done a full day because no one wanted the trip to end!

You will be hard pressed to find people more concerned with safety for their children than we are and while going out on the ocean is never without risk you would be hard pressed to find a better outfit than Jus Sail!

P.S. The added bonus of Herbie giving our daughter the mango after the voyage was very special to her. Tell Herbie thank you again!

Dear Ron,
Thank you so much for taking time out to write us a review. We thoroughly enjoyed having you and your family aboard with us and the children were wonderful shipmates. Its always a different experience with young children, but always a great one at that! We especially love it when youngsters have so much fun in the water. We have passed on your thanks for the mango to Herbert who was very happy indeed to know that the mango went down so well!
We really look forward to welcoming you all aboard with us again in the future.
Best wishes.

I booked a private charter for the day with Jus' Sail for my husbands birthday. I couldn't have planned a more perfect day! James and Pepsi are absolutely charming. We thoroughly enjoyed chatting with them about traveling, St. Lucia, etc. We were showered with beverages (my husband says the best rum punch he has ever had!), got a coastal tour of the west side of the island (which was beautiful), anchored at a gorgeous snorkeling spot and overall had a fantastic experience. They even had a bottle of champagne and cake at the end of our day to celebrate the special occasion! James and Pepsi, I cannot thank you both enough for making out trip to St. Lucia fabulously unforgettable. Cheers!
