Sailed on "living on cloud 9" with captain Dave and assistant Kaley(sp?). They were gracious hosts and made afternoon sail enjoyable. Had a great day and recommend them.

We booked through a kiosk in Cruz Bay and were booked on a 47' sloop called Cloud 9, even had a brochure showing picture. The boat we actually sailed on was a 40' named Living on Cloud 9. Didn't like the change and felt misled. However, with only my wife and me on board everything turned out fine.

We are happy you enjoyed your private charter for the price of two people aboard Cloud 9. How nice to have a big beautiful comfortable 40' sailboat all to yourselves and to have a Captain and crew taking care of you. All that for only $80 per person.
I am sorry you felt mislead by the kiosk/broker - but you were indeed on "Cloud 9" - we have two sailboats legally named Cloud 9. If you had asked Captain Dave he would have told you. I do not know were you got the longer name from because we always refer to both boat's as "Cloud 9". It is unfair of you to accuse Cloud 9 of misleading advertising when all of our marketing materials and website feature both boats equally, even the small rack card has photos from both boats.

Can't say enough about Jason and Leslie! We've always had the best times on any of their trips. Every time we come to St. John, the first thing we do is call and book a couple of trips. And yes Leslie can make some great drinks.

This beautiful boat only holds 6 but we were the only couple to Jost Van Dyke. Captain Dave and 1st Mate Caylee pretty much let us set the itinerary. Snorkeling at Lovango Cay, lunch at Foxies on Jost, 2 hours on White Bay Beach and drinks at Soggy Dollar. The crew was awesome. Gave lots of information about the area and ready with the drinks. Lots of fun! This is a must do if you have the time and can afford the cost. We were not charged extra for the day even though we were the only two on the boat. I was told some of the other captains would have either cancelled or charged us the difference.

I have been fortunate to come to St. John several times before, but this trip I had the chance to being my fiancé for the first time. So I booked Cloud 9 sailing charters for a day trip to Jost Van Dyke. Veronica and I had a truly amazing trip and day! Captain Dave and Mate Roberta were exceptional in every way, from making the sailing look easy, to providing great snorkeling, good conversation, cold beverages, and a beautiful trip in every way possible! I have been coming to St. John and the BVI for many years and have chartered many boats, but none, and I do mean none, were anywhere close to Captain Dave, Roberta and Cloud 9. We even made four great new friends with Dan, Kathy, Todd and Wendy as well (our fellow passengers). I highly recommend Jason's (the owner) Cloud 9 and the crew of Dave and Roberta! You will truly have a time you will never forget! Thanks again to Jason, Dave and Roberta for your warm hospitality and making this day our best day of all on our trip to St. John.

Best sail we've ever been on. What a great way to experience St. John. Dave and Kimmie are wonderful! They are very knowledgeable and professional. We spent the whole day sailing and snorkeling. Moored in Maho Bay. Went snorkeling off of Whistling Cay. Kimmie makes very good sandwiches, as well as a killer painkiller. While sailing next to Lovango Island, a dolphin came up and swam next to the boat. Dave put us on the dingy, and dropped us at Solomon Beach to hangout for a bit. All in all one of the best days of our trip.
