Snorkeling at Buck Island

Buck island was absolutely beautiful and snorkeling in the reef was a lot of fun. Our guides Mike, Mike, and Adam did a great job and made sure everyone had a fun experience:)

My husband and I did the half day snorkel/sail to Buck Island and it was fantastic! We had not snorkeled in years. The crew gave us a quick lesson on the correct way to snorkel and made sure our equipment was comfortable. It was the first time ever that my mask didn't leak. Don't be intimidated if you have never... More

Although we had been to St. Croix several times we had never experienced Buck Island. I am a certified diver but my wife, son and his friend who was travelling with us had little if any snorkeling experience. After doing some research I settled on booking a half day buck island tour with Big Beards. Turned out to be a... More

This was our second time on the sunset cruise and we loved it. Our second-in-command, Tommy, was fantastic! Very friendly and knowledgeable about St. Croix, the wildlife, and the ocean. I had way too many questions and he knew it all! On our cruise, we even saw two sea turtles mating. It was pretty incredible. Be sure to bring cash... More

Captain John & First Mate Andy made an awesome day even better. Everything from the emergency exits (marked in white) to the snorkeling lesson, to the actual snorkeling was perfect. Everyone was friendly & professional, and made us feel right at home in the most beautiful place on earth. We took the half day tour, and our only regret was... More

My family took the half day Buck Island snorkel adventure. We got snorkel lessons from Captain Michael and First Mate Adam, they were extremely helpful with my 5 year old son. They even let my son steer the ship as co- captain! This is something that my son will remember for a lifetime. Snorkeling at Buck Island was truly an... More

Great day on beautiful water. Michael and Andy were great crew members, they were attentive and informative all the while ensuring safety and fun! The water was fantastic, and the boat was easy to maneuver. We learned a lot about the local sea life, and saw a wide variety of colorful fish, a sting ray and a lot of coral.... More

The half day trip to Buck Island (4 hours) is the perfect amount of time if you don't want to opt for the full day trip. The crew was very friendly and helpful and Captain Mike was very entertaining and safety conscience. You can bring snacks, alcohol, water etc and they have coolers for you to store it in. The...

We booked the sunset wedding cruise and loved it! We wanted something romantic that we didn't have to stress over and it was perfect. Captain Steve Kammerzelt and his crewmate, Andy, were both professional, yet so much fun! We were completely comfortable. Captain Steve adjusted the vows at the last minute for us and the bouquet was so beautiful! And... More
