Explore St. John and the USVI on board
s/v Sail Pending
Our water is still crystal clear and our beaches are still beautiful.
The natural beauty has returned, it’s the man made things that are taking a little longer to come back. That is why a vacation aboard s/v Sail Pending is perfect; you won’t have to rough it without electric or air conditioning. Sail Pending is off the grid and completely self sufficient. Sail Pending includes a water maker that turns salt water into distilled water and is dependent upon solar and wind energy to power all your electronic devices.
The boat be completely provisioned in St. Thomas where supplies are abundant. Sail Pending even includes a Captain who has been sailing these waters for the past 10 years. He knows how to access the most popular hiking trails from the beaches and knows where the special snorkeling spots, some of the sites you can’t even access when you are staying on land.
We’ll welcome you on board and circumnavigate the island of St. John, USVI. You’ll get to experience the island from the water side and access remote places that aren’t easy to get to when you are based on land. Snorkel Christmas Cove on Great St. James Island and eat lunch at Pizza Pi, snorkel Waterlemon Cay without having to hike into it, you just have to jump off the back of the boat.
