COVID -19 Update 12/08/2021 

Greetings from Go Sail Virgin Islands. In light of the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, we’d like to share a few updates with you. 

  • Our captain and crew are fully vaccinated and have yet to contract the virus.

  • We require that our guests are fully vaccinated. This is to ensure the safety of everyone on board and the residents of the USVIs. 

  • As per USVI government protocol, all guests must complete the USVI Travel Screening Portal prior to travel to USVIs. If you have questions about this process, please contact us and we are happy to assist. We do not refund if you cannot travel. No refunds or rebooking allowed if you test positive for any illness and cannot travel to the USVI boat location. 

  • We STRONGLY encourage obtaining travel insurance that covers costs related to contracting covid-19. If during your trip you begin to exhibit symptoms of covid-19, we will ask you to socially distance yourself from other guests and crew, and wear a mask when not in your cabin. We understand this is not convenient, but we must respect other guests and our crew. 

  • These are difficult times for the travel and tourism industry, and we are navigating them with diligence. We sincerely thank you for considering Go Sail Virgin Islands for your sailing adventure.

Ronee Terry, March

We had a wonderful week and Captain Mike was a great instructor! Highly recommended!

Chad, April

 We changed our course mid-charter and the Captain didn’t blink an eye. We would not change a thing. Reserve a charter with them, you will have a blast. I know we all will.
