Can't say enough about the crew. They were awesome and extremely knowledgable. We did the Buck Island all day trip which was well worth it. The first stop was great for those in our group who had not snorkeled before. The crew gave instructions to the newbies while the rest of us explored the waters (not a ton of stuff... More

We had a great time on Big Beard's adventure tour in St. Croix. If you are on a cruise ship, you must take a shuttle from Frederiksted to Christiansted (reasonably priced) to get to Big Beard's. Once at Big Beard's, the tour is very well organized and you set sail promptly. The tour included a visit to Buck Island where... More

Did the full day tour with Big Beards and had the best time. Friendly, informative staff. Motor-sailed to Buck Island about 30min. Got to sit upfront and saw about 5 large sea turtles surface along the way. Spent about 45min at turtle beach on BI. If you already know how to snorkel, I would spend the time walking this beach,...

Great snorkeling on the reef at Buck Island. The coral is not in the best condition but it is still a good snorkel with canyons between coralheads and a good amount and variety of fish. Water was crystal clear. We are experienced snorkelers and had the opportunity to swim on the outside of the reef for a little more experience... More

I was nervous about booking this tour directly while on our cruise, but it looked like the not to miss place from St. Croix. Not only did we have a gorgeous day of snorkeling and swimming on buck island and a relaxing boat ride, but the service was phenomenal. Our cruise ship had problems and many details of our itinerary... More

We had a wonderful experience with Big Beards. We were in St. Croix for the day via cruise and booked the tour ourselves. They responded quickly and with great information regarding options, cost and how to get to them as we were docked on the other side of the island. Our cruise ship changed our departure time and they were... More

We are a family of 4, with two kids ages 12 & 15. We all loved, loved this entire trip. Even my husband who doesn't snorkel or even like the water would have done it again if we had the time left on our trip. We went on the all day trip with Captain Mike, Andy and Mike. They couldn't... More

My teenager and I had a great time sailing and snorkeling! The guides were knowledgeable and respectful of the environment. The catamaran was a lovely boat too! The coral around buck island has been damaged so the fish aren't as plentiful, but we did see parrot fish, lion fish, barracudas and sting rays.
