Random Wind was a beautiful day of sailing. April, our host, and Trevor, our captain really made the trip extra fun. We had a small group (only 10). There were newlyweds on the boat and April took a moment to make a special dedication toast to them. There was plenty to drink and the lunch that was served was delicious... More

My husband and I had two-week timeshares in St. Maarten for ten years and every year sailed the Random Wind at least once or twice every year. Diane, the owner, really knows how to entertain young and old. My husband died almost six years ago. I had the opportunity to return on a cruise in June 2015 with my two... More

This trip was really a good time! Really enjoyed the boat. The mate was incredible! Not so great - the food...way too rich for my tastes. Saw lots of people picking over it and leaving a lot on their plates. Not so great - the snorkel equipment. If you don't know what you are doing this equipment will leave you... More

The perfect day. It included sailing, snorkeling, relaxing, eating, drinking, sight seeing, jumping and flipping off the Tarzan bar, feeding fish, good music, and a hell of a great crew. I will return.

The entire day was a blast! We sailed, had wonderful food and drinks, swam, snorkel end and had wonderful conversation with April and Trevor. I think the most fun was the trapeze competition and the swimming in the beautiful water! I will definitely do this trip again!!

This was absolutely amazing!! From the boat, the crystal clear water, the tarzan swing, and the awesome customer service from April, it was a day we will all remember. We were on a Disney cruise with 17 family members (age 9 months to 89 years old) and I booked this excursion for our stop in St. Martin based on the... More

Our first time on Random Wind was as a spectator boat for the Regatta. When family and friends wanted to come to our beautiful island for a wedding, the first that came to my mind was to have it on the Random Wind. Our first experience was great and the 2nd was totally awesome. Diane was extremely helpful with all... More

Diane and Trevor are tremendous hosts. All you have to do is relax and enjoy yourself while Diane and Trevor take care of food, drinks, stories, and fun. Random Wind is a gorgeous and spacious sail boat so you don't feel 'packed-in' at all. We had a wonderful time.
