On St. Thomas we used a company called Simplicity Charter. It is an amazing sailboat that took us on a great sail along St. John with stops for snorkeling, beachcombing and swimming (your preference on activities at stops). They served a great fruit and breads plate for breakfast/brunch, AND a grilled luncheon. The boat was clean and well maintained (the captain's parents live aboard, have day jobs--their son does charters while they are at work!). The captain and first mate are both college educated, articulate people with backgrounds in marine sciences--they were fun and talkative and a wealth of information. They are transplanted Americans and just so terrific. They only take 6 people on their sailboat so this was really private! They have a website.
