Setting Sail St. Thomas

Sailing in St Thomas

St. Thomas has the advantage of being right in the middle of several little islands, allowing visitors to experience a little bit of everything if they base their vacation in St. Thomas. One of the most popular activities in the area is sailing. Setting sail in St. Thomas allows you to really get out there, in the middle of the islands, enjoying the amazing view and going on a great day out! 

But before you head out to the shore, here are some of the main things you need to keep in mind so you can have the perfect day out!

Boat Size

One of the main factors you need to keep in mind is the size of your group. If you’re just two people, you can get a smaller boat to set sail on. However, for larger groups, a bigger boat will be crucial, or the group won’t fit! So make sure that that’s the first thing you keep in mind when booking your holiday sailing adventure!

Private or Public Tour

This is also a major factor. If you like keeping to yourself and want privacy throughout the trip, you should book a private sailing tour. Those that are more okay with having other groups join their adventure could score a better price on the package by booking a public tour instead! There are lots of different types of tours that fit perfectly in every budget, so shop around before sticking to just one! 


There are lots of different types of packages you can get when booking a boat at St. Thomas. Some packages are an all-inclusive trip that includes the boat and the food and beverages on the boat. While with others, you might have to pay for food and drinks separately. Go through the packages extensively to figure out which package works best for you, and go with that one! 


If you’re going on a day out sailing, chances are, you’ll have a lot of free time on your hands while you’re out there relaxing. If you’re the type of person to spruce up your trip with some add-ons like snorkeling or swimming with sea turtles, or even going jet skiing, you can get all of that done in one day without having to come out to the beach another day and booking it separately. One mega water-based adventure day instead of several! That way, you can make the most out of your sailing adventures all in one day!
