I recently returned from a sail on the Yacht Nightwind. This is a full day sail which runs from 9am to 3:30/4pm.
The day started with a 9am boarding where owners Rick and Cathy and crew member Kim had breakfast set up (pineapple, cinnamon rolls and other breads) and your choice of beverage (alcoholic or nonalcoholic).
We then set sail across Pillsbury Sound from St. Thomas to St. John. The specific snorkel spots depend on the days conditions. For example we went to look at one spot and Rick thought the visibility would not be very clear so we went over to Christmas Cove for our first spot instead. We snorkeled for about an hour before getting back on board for lunch.
Lunch consisted of chicken drumsticks, pasta salad, deviled eggs, pickles and banana bread.
After lunch we went to our second snorkel spot of Little St. James. The second spot had a stronger current and we didn't spend as much time there. I saw more variety of fish at the first location but did see some squid at the second stop.
After our second stop they served chocolate cake for a snack and then we had a leisurely sail back to St. Thomas (Sapphire Beach marina).
I enjoyed the trip and would do it again if I choose to do an all day snorkel trip from St. Thomas. They also have T Shirts available for purchase for $15. We only had 10 people on our trip and the boat didn't feel crowded at all.
Cathy, Rick and Kim all did a good job of making everyone feel welcome and were all available for anything you might want or need during the trip.
