Sailing in St Thomas
The Virgin Islands are one of the most popular sailing grounds in the world, primarily due to the proximity of the surrounding islands. With countless white sand beaches, crystal clear waters, incredible reefs, and consistent wind, sailing around St Thomas and St John is a must-do when visiting the Virgin Islands.
All of our charters start at either Compass Point Marina (our home port), the Ritz Carlton St Thomas, or Cruz Bay in St John.

St Thomas Sailing Itinerary Highlights and Hotspots:
Very popular amongst sailors and power-boaters alike, Christmas Cove is a great place to go for a snorkel on the remote island’s reefs, bask in the sun on our water toys and relax on board to the sound of your favorite music. Order a pizza from the floating restaurant, Pizza Pi, while you relax and enjoy the protection of the bay from the easterly winds. The water in Christmas Cove is pristine and clear, with a guarantee to see plenty of local sea life.
Maho Bay is a favorite spot amongst both those on land and boaters alike and a very special spot to swim with Turtles! The beach has beautiful white sand and towering palm trees and is always calm; perfect for a snorkel and a soak. Maho Bay is one of the few bays with a sandy bottom that extends far offshore, providing lots of real estate for sea life to migrate through and perfect for guests of all ages to enjoy the visibility it provides.
Home to the recent development Lovango Resort & Beach Club, Lovango is a private island equidistant from St Thomas and St John. Lovango Resort is one of the newest go-to day charter destinations in the USVI and a quick boat trip from St Thomas or St John. Many guests choose to visit Lovango Cay for a snorkel and then an exquisite oceanfront lunch before continuing on with their adventures. (Local secret; the backside of Lovango Cay has one of the most beautiful stretches of ocean as the Atlantic Ocean moves between Congo Cay and Lovango Cay, with visibility 50-60 feet to the ocean floor).
On the North shore of St John, just around the corner from Cruz Bay, Honeymoon Beach is adjacent to the former Caneel Bay Beach Resort. As of late 2022, Honeymoon Beach has a new establishment, the Caneel Bay Beach Club, a unique offering for lunch, drinks and relaxing. With beautiful white sand and crystal clear water, Honeymoon is a must do when cruising on Freedom.
Cinnamon Bay happens to be the longest beach in St John and is situated on the decorated North Shore of St John. While the land-based activities feature camping amenities, snack bar, showers, and restrooms our charter guests typically enjoy the turquoise water and snorkelers can enjoy the beauty under the surface. Famous Peter Bay, with incredible private and rental homes, sits just nearby to the West, and a trip to Cinnamon Bay wouldn’t be complete without a drive-by “house tour” of Peter Bay.
Also called Gibney Beach, Oppenheimer Beach sits on St. John’s North Shore located directly east of Hawksnest Bay on St John. With several mooring balls for term charters and day charters alike, Oppenheimer also features “St John’s Smallest Beach” also known as Mermaid’s Chair.
