“You Make the Memories, We’ll Make the Arrangements”

Does swimming in turquoise crystal-clear water and sunbathing on beautiful, white sandy beaches sound like paradise to you? The US Virgin Islands offer precisely that. After only a short flight from the US East Coast, you could be scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, or paddleboarding in these pristine waters. This will surely provide a great escape for the entire family. Guests of all ages are welcome, and it is a baby-friendly vessel.

Water Toys

There is no shortage of water toys on this sailing vessel. In addition, scuba gear is conveniently provided on board. Since Captain Shawn is a divemaster, offering his expertise will provide a sense of security. The crystal-clear waters of the USVI, with over 500 species of fish coupled with 40 types of coral, are ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving.

  • 50 HP dinghy
  • Adult water skis
  • Kneeboards and wakeboard
  • 2 kayaks
  • Floating mats
  • Swim platform
  • Snorkel and fishing gear
  • 4 SU Paddleboards
  • Scuba gear for four adults, including wetsuits

  • E-Foil (New addition)

The August Maverick offers Rendezvous diving only.

We’ve also added an e-foil (electric hydrofoil) to our water-sports line up.  E-foils are a relatively new addition to the water sports world but are taking off – literally.  As someone who grew up surfing it is great to be able to share that feeling with guests even when there are no waves.  It really is a blast.

Relish breakfast, midday meal, or dinner here or in the main salon of the August Maverick

Start the day in Paradise, savoring freshly baked scones, eggs benedict, or fruit-filled crepes. While you dine, sit on the deck, watch the gentle waves of the Caribbean Sea, and enjoy a gentle ocean breeze.

After a morning spent with great water activities, the family will appreciate Caribbean fish tacos, vegetable kabobs, or grilled panini.

While relishing the gorgeous sunset in the evening, you might agree that the Sunset Beach BBQ is a family favorite. Mouthwatering pineapple glazed pork tenderloin, coconut prawns, stuffed Caribbean lobster, and several enticing side dishes make this menu item very appealing.
