I did 2 trips to Buck Island while in Saint Croix. I did the Big Beard tour and the glass bottom boat tour. This is the good one! Big Beard runs great boat, has excellent equipment, makes the trip a party atmosphere, and gets you more time in the water. The trip consisted of a 50 minute or so sail/motor... More

our crew Steven, Andrew and Gabe took good care of us on our day sail to Buck Island and back. The reef still is great for snorkeling and Turtle beach is a must see for any beach lover

I absolutely loved this trip. Only regret was not doing the full day excursion. If I ever make it back to St. Croix I'm going back and doing the full day excursion ! They were very informative and it was just a trip to remember. I can't say enough about how beautiful the coral reef is and how many beautiful... More

We originally wanted to take a sunset cruise on the Jolly Roger since we had sailed with Captain Mike before. But he was out of town and we decided to go with Big Beard's. The trip was fun and we got to see a lot of the island, but I wish there had been more involvement from the crew....If you... More

We loved the full day cruise! Mike and Steve were awesome. Both super knowledgeable and helpful. And the snorkeling at the reefs was amazing. That alone was worth the cost. Plus, they cooked us lunch on the beach! How can you beat that? Seriously, go on the adventure. You won’t regret it.

My husband and I booked the full-day sail to Buck Island and the sunset cruise while on our honeymoon in St. Croix. We had an absolute blast on both excursions. The full-day sail ended up being the highlight of our entire trip: the crew (Mike and Steve) was a lot of fun, Turtle Beach was the most beautiful beach in... More

We loved our day on Big Beard's!! I have to be honest--the name was actually a bit of a turnoff, as I thought they might be the cheesy, touristy outfit on the island, but boy was I wrong! Completely professional, accommodating to kids but not annoyingly doting, and fully enjoyable. The ride out to Buck Island was actually a little... More

We took a half-day trip to Buck Island with Big Beard's based on the recommendation of our dive shop. We had a great time. The boat was spacious, bright, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. 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
