USCG 100 Ton Master Jason Carter

Jason st john sailingHello, My name is Jason. I have a 100 ton USCG Masters License and am the captain of the 46' ft. sailing sloop  Survivan. Captain Jason Carter on Survivan sailing from St John USVI Growing up in Texas, and spending my childhood summers hiking and climbing all over Colorado, I acquired a love for the outdoors.  I went to school for Anthropology at  Texas A&M University and then spent time in Alaska working as a mountaineering guide.  After school I spent my winters managing a snowboard shop in Breckenridge Colorado and when summer rolled around I was back up in Alaska stomping though the majestic mountains. I had a chance to travel to Thailand the winter of 2000.  The tropical weather and the ocean were supporting ideas of change, and getting out of endless winters spent in Alaska and Colorado. Growing up around lakes in Texas, and learning how to sail, I made a choice after Thailand to move here to St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands.  Consequently, I have lived on the water ever since.  Sailing, exploring, as well as working as a Kayak and snorkeling guide all around the area have given me a great understanding of our  surrounding waters. The snorkeling around St John is excellent.  I have a superb knowledge of where the best snorkel spots are and what we will see there.


USCG 100 Ton Master Justin Cofield

Justin recently moved together with his family back to St John after spending several years off island working in the sailing industry based in Newport, Rhode Island.  His sailing experiences range from cruising, to offshore sailing, to modern and classic race programs.  Justin has logged many sea miles throughout his years on the ocean and enjoys sharing stories of his travels.  Justin has a deep passion and appreciation for the ocean.  He believes that a day on the water is an essential part of visiting the islands.  He always remembers his first sail in St. John as a young child and takes great pleasure in watching his 2-year-old son experience sailing today.  While surfing and sailing all over the world, he has developed a wealth of knowledge of its reefs and ecosystems.  Justin is happy to share this knowledge and his experiences to help you create memories while aboard.
