Owner description: Get ready to experience the beauty and laid back rhythm of the Virgin Islands on this exclusive half-day sail from St. Thomas to the enchanted Island of St. John. Enjoy the thrill and excitement of sailing the Caribbean before swimming, snorkeling and relaxing on "Honeymoon Beach," one of St. John's picture-perfect palm-fringed white sand beaches. As you make the down wind return sail to St. Thomas take the wheel and learn the ropes, or just reflect on a perfect day as our crew spoils you with complimentary champagne, beer, rum punch, and cheese & fruit platters.

The crew of Castaway Girl IV were a blast and we had a great time. Didnt see a lot of sea life but the experience was great.

While the staff was very nice, this was more appropriate for older teens or those of drinking age. The snorkeling was okay - kind of boring in comparison to other locations we have snorkeled.

We then went to a private beach. What we found out when we got there is that you had to go through 4’ of water to get to the beach. So you had to carry what you could over your head and hoped it wouldn’t get wet (like cell phones). There was no chairs to sit on at the beach. Only locals trying to sell food, drinks and souvenirs.

The staff let the run drinks flow so if you’re interested in a party boat - this is it.

I’m sure those that wanted to party had a great time. Those of us that wanted to snorkel and had younger children were bored and wanted to go back to the ship.

Had a great excursion in St. Thomas on the Castaway Girl 4 with Dillon, Chris, & Jody. The crew was very professional and safety minded. Two stops - turtles and then a shipwreck. Great boat. Great crew. Can’t go wrong. Give Castaway Girl 4 a shot. Your cruise ship may list this excursion as the ‘Buck Island Sail and Snorkel’.

I went on a snorkeling trip with the crew of Castaway Girl 4 and it was amazing! The crew is hilarious, but well-trained and extremely knowledgeable about the local area. If you’re not sailing with Castaway Girl 4, you’re doing something wrong!
