We had a large extended family (13 of us) arriving on the Jewel of The Seas on March 23rd. We knew that any Cruise Ship excursion would be a cattle call and found Joe via the web. He had two options of private charters to either Baths/Cooper Island or Norman Island/JVD. We selected the Norman Island Snorkel/Jost Van Dyke trip.... More

We had an excellent day snorkeling on Patouche with Joe on what turned out to be a private charter with just my family. We went to the wreck of the Rhone, Haulover Bay/ Cooper Island and the Baths. Joe had lots of local knowledge of the area which he shared freely. The snorkel areas were all excellent and he also... More

Capt. Joe did an excellent job. with communication. We typically book cruise excursions thru the cruise ship but are tired of the same stuff with tons of people jammed onto a boat. I contacted Joe and within hours of calling him had confirmation emails. The price is comparable to the typical cruise excursion but is such a more personable experience.... More

Arrived early morning on the Ventura and as promised Joe collected us from the port gates.Even though there were only 2 of us from the ship and a couple from the island booked on tour he still went ahead. Prior to our cruise we made enquiries to several snorkel trip operators and Patouche was the only one who would take... More

We arrived at Tortola in the evening and sailed with Joe the next morning. He was our introduction to the BVI and what a joy that was. We had a fantastic day of sailing, snorkeling and learning about the islands in the BVI. Joe is personable, knowledgeable and a veteran sailor/waterman. Don't miss this opportunity to see the beauty of... More

Some friends we met on a cruise invited us to be part of their "excursion" with Captain Joe, and we are so glad we went! Captain Joe was very knowledgeable about the history of the islands, and was able to tell us about many of the structures/homes in the islands. The Amway Corporation; the fertilizer mogul; royalty... all so interesting!... More

I recently took an excursion with Joe Standish and Patouche Charters on Februrary 9th 2014. I'm so glad I did this excursion with him and not with the cruise ship I was on. Joe knows how to avoid the "train of passengers" from the cruises and spend our precious time wisely. We arrived at the Baths as they were all... More

My experience with prior excursions booked through the cruise line told me that local is best. I contacted Caption Joe/Patouche Charters prior to my trip asking for information, tours etc. The website is easy and Joe is extremely prompt to respond to inquiries. We opted for the Virgin Gorda and Baths tour, and it was great. We were met at... More

Recently stayed at the Peter Island Resort, BVI. During our visit we did a snorkel trip with Patouche/Captain Joe. We were picked up right at the dock and once on board did not have to do anything other than enjoy ourselves. Joe knew his stuff and gave a great history of the islands we visited and saw enroute. He shared... More
