US Virgin Islands Hotel & Tourism Association

Sail with Liberty Charters: Experience the sheer joy of sailing on our 44-foot sailing yacht, Liberty. Come for a 3+ hour getaway sail, a sunset sail, or luxuriate on our spacious decks for a full day sailing the Virgin Islands that includes snacks, lunch, drinks and several snorkel spots. During our day sail charters in the U.S. Virgin Islands, we leave from St. Thomas in Red Hook (or we can pick you up in Cruz Bay, St. John), and we sail and snorkel the best spots in the St. John National Park and surrounding cays.

A St. Thomas sailing excursion is the best way to experience the best that our gorgeous Virgin Islands have to offer. Your captain and crew know the islands and marine life well from years of local exploration and research. We delight in describing the natural surroundings and sharing tales behind the local points of interest on the water. While sailing with Liberty, guests can enjoy their private space on deck or sit in the large, shaded cockpit. Numerous seats and cushions are available.

Born in the Naval Academy Hospital, it is no coincidence Captain Ryan grew up sailing on the Chesapeake Bay. With the Virgin Islands as his home since 2006, he enjoys the consistent trade winds, convenient and numerous local anchoring destinations, and favorable year-round sailing that our islands provide. Ryan’s wife Mumfy also enjoys sailing, cooking and making guests feel right at home on Liberty. Be sure to inquire about Mumfy’s Famous “Pum Runch!”
