We went on the half day tour and it was just the right amount of time for us. We had perfect weather and the approach to Turtle Beach is a sight I won't forget for a very long time. The beach is absolutely breathtaking! I've never seen water that color before. After a brief intro to snorkeling we were off... More

The sunset cruise with Captain Michael and Andy was phenomenal. My family of 5 really enjoyed the experience and would do it again if we ever make it back to St Croix

Absolutely beautiful... Buck Island and Turtle Beach are amazing...I was able to participate in all three tours, half day, full day with BBQ and the Sunset Cruise. The Crew is wonderful and very helpful if this is your first time snorkeling. I would recommend Big Beards to anyone traveling to St Croix. There is a Bonus if you buy the... More

We took the full day trip to Buck Island. When you first get to Buck Island, they take you to a shallower spot where they show you how to use the equipment and get used to snorkeling. After, they take you on a guided tour of the reef. It was absolutely incredible! We were taken to a secluded beach for... More

You never get enough time to snorkel - but having said that - Big Beard is the way to go to experience Buck Island - we stayed at the Buccaneer- they picked us up at Mermaid dock - the concierge recommends another company, but we'd stick with Big Beard all day excursion- you get to snorkel at 2 locations plus...

We went on this tour from celebrity cruise line. We called ahead and saved our spot for a group of 9. This was an amazing day- my favourite excursion that we did. The island was breath taking!! On the way to the island we saw two dolphins and a sea turtle. The corral was beautiful and the lunch tasted fantastic.... More

We did the half day snorkel trip to Buck Island. I was initially a bit hesitant as I had heard about all the damage to the coral with the hurricane some years back. I was very glad I went! It was amazing to see the underwater world and very educational for my kids. The boat first stops in shallow water... More

We went on the afternoon half day trip to buck island and would highly recommend it. Though it was a little more expensive than similar trips we have done on other islands, its well worth it. If you've never been snorkeling before, this is the perfect one for you-as they offer a mini lesson beforehand and take you on a... More
