St. John Sailing

Here are a few helpful tips when planning your 7 night all-inclusive St. John sailing vacation:

Where do you board the boat in St. John?

Although St. John is a part of the USVI, you will board the boat at 5pm on Tortola, BVI. We are located at Hodges Creek Marina.

Does the St. John itinerary require a passport?

Yes, because this itinerary offers popular stops in the British Virgin Islands and boarding the yacht takes place in Tortola, a passport is required.

Are there any additional fees?

There is a cruising permit fee of $59.00 that will be added to your charter price at the time of reservation.

Why do cruising permit fees cost more than the BVI itinerary?

Because our St. John itinerary offers popular island stops in the BVI as well as the USVI. There are two separate cruising permit fees. We have added them together for your convenience.

Which Lagoon yacht can I charter?

We offer the Lagoon 440 for the St. John itinerary. This particular yacht holds 6 guests. If you are interested in the Lagoon 450, please let you charter specialist know and they can provide pricing. Please note, there is a limit of 6 guests when chartering the Lagoon 450 in St. John.

Is the package different from the British Virgin Islands package?

There is not a difference between the BVI package and the St. John package. Both itineraries offer 5 dinners, 6 lunches and 7 breakfasts throughout your charter week as well as an open bar.
