The crew was very professional, friendly, and safety-conscious. The beach at Buck Island is the most beautiful beach we have ever seen, but the snorkeling on the... More

We did the half day trip with Big Beard. The folks at check-in and on the boat were very warm and friendly. The boat itself was large and clean. Our rating is not based on any inadequacies of the staff or operation. We just found the trip itself to be a waste of time. The 1/2 day trip really includes... More

Our last day we chose to do the Buck Island tour with Big Beard's, and we are so glad that we did. Andy and Michael were awesome! You get a sailboat ride, snorkeling adventure, lunch, and so much fun in this day trip. The water is the bluest I have ever seen! This is a must do on your St.... More

It was a small group of two families and the capt and first mate did a great job of entertaining and guiding us while we snorkled and hung out on the beach at Buck Island. Definately recommend.

My husband and I were in St Croix for 5 days over Memorial Day 2014. We signed up for the Buck Island half day adventure while walking the boardwalk when we arrived to Christiansted. We both enjoyed the stop on the beach at Buck Island and found snorkeling on the reef to be very enjoyable. The crew were all helpful... More

if you are a keen/experienced snorkeler i would suggest NOT taking the (overpriced) 1/2 day since more that half of the time was at Turtle Beach, which is lovely, but not what I paid to do with Gabe and John last week!! my kids enjoyed the boat ride and we were lucky enough to have a small friendly group. make...

We booked the full-day Buck Island Reef tour a few weeks prior to boarding the Celebrity Summit in San Juan. As things unfolded upon arrival, everything was exactly as explained by phone: buy shuttle bus ticket at the end of the pier, board shuttle bus, and head across the island to the ticket office. We were told the seas were... More

This trip to Buck Island was one of the best we did during our cruise. We booked the half-day trip via internet and everything was very well organized and the communication prior to the trip was excellent. The trip itself was very well carried out and the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly to everyone. They took care of special... More
