Tips for visiting St. John, USVI
Even though the Caribbean is a wildly popular sailing destination, we still recommend spending plenty of time exploring the island of St. John either before or after your boat rental trip.
The weather can affect your sailing plans if you end up booking your trip during a time with cooler temperatures or adverse weather conditions, like tropical storms and hurricanes. You can visit year-round, but we recommend booking for March through June if you want the most ideal weather and sailing conditions. Of course, like other tropical places in the world, the weather can be unpredictable, so just keep this in mind and pack according to the season you plan to visit.
If you’re visiting St. John, you might even want to extend your trip and take a longer tropical vacay! Want even more vacation ideas? Check out St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands or the British Virgin Islands. Sailo offers plenty of catamarans and sailboats all over the Caribbean, so after you’re finished exploring St. John, try island hopping!
