Join us for all of your Watersports needs! We offer daily Buck Island Snorkeling & SCUBA Diving, Private Charters, Sunset Sails, SNUBA Diving, Parasailing and Kayaking! Buck Island Reef National Monument is a must for every visitor whether you snorkel the underwater trail or just enjoy the beach! Proclaimed as a National Monument in 1961 by John F. Kennedy, Buck Island is considered to be "one of the finest marine gardens in the Caribbean Sea." Buck Island's main beauty lies in the surrounding coral reef ecosystem and its unique underwater trail. Here you will snorkel amongst endangered elkhorn and staghorn coral formations teeming with colorful reef fish. After snorkeling, we head to Turtle beach on the west side of Buck Island for some rest and relaxation. Turtle beach was rated one of the world's most beautiful beaches by National Geographic! You can sign up for a full day or half day charter on either a power boat or sail, any day of the week!

We did an half day day snorkeling trip to Buck Island reef. The reef is beautiful, the underwater signs they have are nice, telling your about the corals. After snorkeling we went over to the beach on Buck island. nice white sand. Great place to relax for a while. Crew was fun!

We were on a shore excursion and were picked up in Christiansted USVI and taken to the barrier reef surrounding Buck Island NM. The crew was professional and entertaining. Good instructions and a guided tour before letting us loose. Seating was a little tight but not uncomfortable. The reef itself was extraordinary and the underwater signage was great..My first snorkeling... More

We took the half day trip to Buck Island with Miles and his crew. We had a fantastic day, the water was crystal clear and the island beautifully pristine and preserved. Miles and his crew were fun and informative. They gave us a guided snorkel tour of the absolutely gorgeous coral reef and then time to snorkel or swim at... More

We took the "Sunday Funday" trip with Caribbean Sea Adventures and had a fantastic time. The crew took us to Buck Island Turtle Beach for a "do what you want" day on the beach. You can bring along any snacks, a picnic, drinks and/or beer. They provide the cooler and ice to keep it cold. We took our snorkel gear... More

We booked a full day trip to Buck Island using Caribbean Sea Adventures at the recommendation of the concierge at The Buccaneer. The brochure talks about full and half day trip and trimarans. We dedided to book with them since the sea was pretty choppy that day and thought the trimaran would be a smoother ride. When I booked the... More

Your in good hands with Captain Miles, Marcus and the rest of the crew. Snorkeling Buck Island is a surreal experience and the Caribbean Sea Adventures crew make it a lasting memory!

We had a group of 11 ages 3-74 and chartered a snorkeling trip to Buck Island. Captain Sparky and dive guide Kendall took us on a 10-4 PM day of snorkeling and beach time on Buck Island. Weather conditions were perfect and both Captain Sparky and Kendall could not have been friendlier . safety conscious and more accommodating. If you... More

Have read previous review so let me start by saying we were on the dive boat Sunday the 18 of January with others from our Cruise ship, Miles was not our Captain.. Ship was crewed by four great men. They were careful but fun, laid back, joking, and were perfect mates, hosts, and guides. The ride out was fine, safety... More

I took the half day tour to snorkel at Buck Island Reef. From the first phone call for information to exiting the boat, it was a wonderful experience. Although I was obviously the oldest participant, I was made to feel most welcome and safe. A few suggestions: ask for senior discount (10%), they have lifesaving rings for slower swimmers that...

Crew was the only reason that this gets 2 stars from us. Booked a private charter for the day to Buck Island with a sail on a 32 foot catamaran including lunch and drinks for $1200. Called to confirm the day before and was told that we might have to leave a couple of hours later due to the weather,... More
