Many of those taking one of Big Beard's Adventure Tours are coming off the Cruise Ships for the day. They have both 1/2 day Tours to Buck Island, and a full day Tour that also includes a BBQ afternoon lunch, with food, drinks and alcohol included in the price. Great time!

The office staff,especially Mary Ann,went above and beyond to help us. The trip with Steve,as captain,Gabe and mike as crew made our experience superb. They really were knowledgeable and personable about the reef.

We were in St. Croix for an Anesthesia Conference and decided to do a full day Snorkeling trip on our off day (Wednesday). I must say the crew/captain went above and beyond to make our trip an excellent experience. We started off from downtown Christiansted and had about a 45 minute boat ride to Buck Island. We stopped on the... More

A storm rolled through when we were on the dock waiting and after that it was a great day on the tour. The first beach stop was amazing. Right on Buck Island to practice your snorkeling, lay on the beach or take a stroll to discover the island. After that we headed over to the location of the good snorkeling.... More

This is your average snorkeling tour that does have pretty decent snorkeling. Don't get me wrong there a many places that are not as good as big beards and they do a decent job. Everything is clean, everyone is professional, and informative but let's face it, your in the caribeean and you want to have a fun time. They don't... More

We went on the Buck Island half day snorkelling excursion. The boat left at midday and returned to the dock around just before dusk. It was a birthday present for my son from his aunt and uncle and we all decided to go for an afternoon of fun. We had a fairly large group of folks on this trip. But... More

We took the full day Buck Island trip with their Renegade catamaran. Everything was excellent. The snorkeling gear they provided was very good. Turtle beach is a place that you would think photoshop'ed by God. All you can eat food, especially Mahi sticks and all you can drink rum punch while sailing. What else can you ask for?

We were on a cruise that stopped at St Croix. We decided to do the full day to Buck Island and the crew was very accommodating to the ship's schedule. The first beach we visited was very pretty and we explored and snorkeled while the new snorkeler's had a short lesson before going to the main snorkel site at Buck... More

I had the greatest experience on Big Beards full day tour to buck island! Captain Mike was hilarious and made everyone excited to snorkel. The sail to buck island was absolutely stunning. Once we got there Molly was such a sweet girl and extremely helpful. She showed me how to use the snorkel equipment because it was my first time.... More
