Had a great trip with Captain Rudy and 1st mate Gabe. Full day snorkeling trip to Buck island. Followed by an excellent bbq on the beach with burgers dogs and Mahi mahi. Gabe was a first rate first mate keeping my rump punch glass filled. The Marine!

This was our second trip with Big Beard and it was as fun as the first. Michael and Andy took great care of everyone and extra care for my 5 and 9 year olds. The snorkeling was beautiful and the mahi they prepared for lunch was delicious.

We took two trips with them last week Sunset Cruise and the Full Day Snorkel Trip to Buck Island. This was a great time, wonderful staff and we recommend this to anyone in the area. Staff was excellent from booking online, to checking in, sailing on the boat, providing the snorkeling basics and feeding us with wonderful BBQ

We had an AMAZING day traveling to Buck Island, snorkeling, and enjoying lunch on the beach. The best part was sailing back to the Christanstead without the motor. Sun, quiet, full belly, rum punch, relaxin on the front of the boat...HEAVEN!

We went on our first full day snorkel trip on July 12 and had such a good time with the Big Beard's crew that we booked a sunset cruise with them and a second full day snorkel trip. Each crew we had for all three adventures were a ton of fun. The full day tour has not only snorkeling and... More

We did the All Day Buck Island Tour. It was great. Crew is what made the whole thing awesome. When you go with these guys just bring your sun block (NO Crappy AEROSOLS) pretty much everything else is taken cared for. As far as Snorkeling at Buck Island Reef. Thank you JFK!!! It is beautiful place. I'd recommend Big Beard... More

We went on the Big Beards Snorkeling Tour to Buck Island. Everything about the ship and crew was great but snorkeling at Buck Island itself was disappointing. Check out other Trip Advisor reports for Buck Island. Though, the reef at Buck Island is in horrible shape, the Big Beard's crew was amazing. They sent staff out with floats with inexperienced...

Big Beard's was a great experience. They took us to a nice calm beach to teach the noobs (like my wife) how to snorkel, then took us out to the reef. They led us through, then gave us time to explore on our own. Had a barbecue lunch on the beach. Very professional, not a crowded boat, etc. Would definitely... More

We did the half-day snorkel tour of Buck Island and thoroughly enjoyed it. The boat was the Adventure, and the captain and crew were friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

Did the full day tour today. Nothing short of amazing. Snorkeling was awesome. Even our 13 year old, who wasn't thrilled about going, admitted she had a good time. Thanks Mike and Andy for some incredible memories.
