We cannot say enough wonderful things about our time on Whiskey Business. Wade, Tippee, & Bo were the most incredible hosts & we had the experience of a lifetime!

My husband and I and our 4 kids just finished 3 days on Whiskey Business and we CANNOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS! The boat is beautiful and comfortable and Tippee is possibly the best cook I’ve ever had make me a meal… and if that’s not enough Wade and Tippee are 2 of the absolute nicest people you will ever meet. My 9 year old son followed Wade around like he’d met a rockstar, asking him a million questions and Wade was SO kind. If you’ve been looking to book a charter, look no father. It doesn’t get better than Whiskey Business. We can’t wait to book it again.

I have no words for the incredible time we had this spring break with Raisin’Sail Island Charters. If you’re looking for an amazing family trip, look no further. Wade Ball and Tippee Bishop Ball made us feel like family the minute we set foot on the boat. They accommodated all of the kids favorite foods and had an entire menu prepared just for James’ allergies.

This will be a trip none of us will ever forget!!!

We had an amazing charter with Tippee, Capt Wade and of course sweet Beau! We sailed around all of St. John stopping from Maho Bay to Christmas Cove. Limeout floating taco bar in Coral Bay was a hit! Each destination was breathtaking. We have traveled a lot of places and never experienced such an amazing trip. The food, drinks, and island views were amazing! Book Whiskey Business! You won’t regret it!

March 2021

We did a full day charter and these guys are top notch hosts! Tippee is the sweetest, Wade is a great captain and Bo is a great deck mate! Please do yourself a favor and DO NOT hesitate to book with these guys. You will not be disappointed!

March 2021

We had the most amazing time with Tippee, Wade, and Beau (star of the show, their pupper)! This was no doubt the highlight of our trip. We spent the day snorkeling, paddle boarding , and sun bathing. Food drinks were delicious! Y’all, if you don’t book a day, few days, or week with them.. you are doing it wrong. Thank you again for the most incredible experience and making my birthday one to remember!!

Our family had a wonderful time on Whiskey Business yesterday. The experience, memories, and hospitality of Tippee and Wade was exceptional! We started the day as friends but left feeling like family; I cannot recommend them enough. Thank you!

Unbelievable personal experience to make your day the best it can be.
January 2021
Wade and Tippee were incredible hosts aboard their beautiful boat. Super nice folks who made sure that every detail of our day trip was attended to. I cannot recommend them enough - for a day or days or even longer, they are great and super knowledgeable! The boat is incredible - clean, safe, every watersport toy available, delicious drinks and snacks all day long....slice of heaven.

Fare well Wade and Tippee and we do hope our paths cross again some day.

"Captain Wade, along with his wife and family were nothing short of amazing. They make you feel so comfortable the whole day. They were always there to answer any questions we had. Simply an incredible experience if you are looking to relax and enjoy some great views!!"

"Our charter on Whiskey Business with Raisin’Sail was our favorite part of our trip to St Thomas. I highly recommend them. They designed our charter to our interest and taste. Food was out of this world. The best Painkiller I’ve ever had. The catamaran is so comfortable and adorably decorated. They have more than anyone could ever need (sunscreen, towels, great cups to keep your drinks cold) all you need to bring is your bathing suit. Whether you want to snorkel, fish, paddleboard, kayak or just float around, they’ve got you covered. We loved their sweet puppy, Bo. We can not wait to come back for a week charter with friends."

"First time chartering and loved it. Winds were enough to put sails up. Made it to Maho bay and relaxed in calm waters. Trip back into sunset was awesome."
