Owner description: Set sail on a breathtaking journey, aboard an elegant sailing vessel reminiscent of an ancient pirate ship. Stand on the bow as the sun warms your soul and we whisk you away to your paradise, whether it's St. John, Jost Van Dyke, Norman Island, Virgin Gorda, Tortolla or even Anegada you charter the course, we'll sail you there. Relax as balmy sea breezes refresh your senses and crystal Caribbean waters lap out a melodic rhythm alongside the ship. Roam secluded coves; venture onto an unspoiled stretch of sand, snorkel over a vibrant reef or just relax aboard Treazzure. Come explore with us, on board the largest daysail in the US Virgin Islands and experience an adventure like no other as you sail under the black flag.

Sailing with Capt. Joe and Neen was an absolute pleasure. They picked us up directly from the beach at the Ritz-Carlton and took us on a beautiful sail around the island. "It's Amasing" is new and very comfortable. Highly recommend!

Our family has done day-sailing / snorkeling trips on other boats in St. Thomas - both catamarans and monohulls, but this one is far and away better than anything we have done before.
First, the catamaran is equipped as a live-aboard, so you have all of the creature comforts you would expect if you were going to sail around the world. This is not your typical day-sail catamaran with plastic everywhere, small economy toilets, and where you are essentially restricted to the outside areas. This cat has everything - full on luxury.
Second, it is private. You don't have to worry about who you are going to be grouped with as on other cheaper alternatives. Sure it costs more, but do you want to get paired up with the little screaming kids? The drunks? The person getting sick?
Third - Captain Joe is a treat, with lot's of great information and advice along the way. He knows where to take you to stay away from the crowds, and he will tailor the trip to what you want to do - not like other tours that do the same thing every day. We snorkeled in some deep water off of some remote points and islands - and it was just us...not another boat or person in sight. Food is good as well.

Wow! My husband and I have been on many day sails while in St Thomas and we did a week bare-boating in the BVI. My husband searched for quite a while to find the right vessel since a couple of folks with us tend to get seasick, so he settled on It's Amasing (she was built in France where Zs don't exist), since she's a catamaran and more stable than a monohull. Communication with Capt Joe was excellent beforehand.

There were 8 of us last Thursday who sailed. Joe and his newest mate, Neen, were right on time at 9:30 to pick us up. Breakfast was comprised of fresh fruits and wonderful baked goods. There were plenty of snacks and beverages. Neen is an experienced bartender and made fabulous drinks. Joe made a low country boil for lunch with shellfish, chorizo and veggies. Being an experienced chef added to the benefit of hiring him. We had a full day of sailing, snorkeling, eating and drinking.

Everyone loved it so much they wanted to go again on Friday and, fortunately, there was no booking. It was another great day. Joe took us to different locations. Unfortunately, we had to come back to the States on Saturday ot we probably would have gone again.

I must say this is the best daysail we've had. I hesitate to give such a glowing review because it might make it too hard to book with Joe on our next trip. Thank you Joe and Neen for showing us a fabulous time. It was so hard to depart "It's Amasing".

From the moment Captain Joe and First Mate Neen picked us up on the beach for our dinghy ride to the beautiful catamaran "It's Amasing", our day/sunset sail was an adventure of a lifetime. A delicious breakfast of fruit, muffins, coffee, juices, many other beverages to choose were ready for our family of 8 when we boarded the catamaran.
Lunch was an awesome New England Boil. We sailed, snorkeled and enjoyed this fantastic day visiting with Captain Joe and Neen. Just spending time with Captain Joe is a pleasure. Enjoyed listening to Captain Joe sharing his knowledge and love for the islands. At the end of our day, Captain Joe and Neen lowered a sail for our sunset sail back to Christmas Cove and a final snorkel. Thank You Captain Joe and Neen. It was our pleasure to spend the day with you both on "It's Amasing".

What an experience! It was a delight to sail with Captain Joe and Neen! It was raining on and off all day, but Joe made it great by taking us to 2 fabulous snorkeling destinations! It was an unique experience to snorkel with the rain hitting your back watching the fish, fauna and coral, really spectacular. Neen was attentive, made us drinks, breakfast and a wonderful shrimp boil for lunch. My husband and I sat on the bridge with Captain Joe "Hollywood" when sailing. He's lead a colorful life and shared some highlights with us along with historical information about the islands. Fascinating man. He's not a clock watcher and was more than willing to make the trip a memorable one. If you are in the West Indies, charter Captain Joe and his 45 foot catamaran "Amasing" for some amazing memories of a lifetime!
