We took the dinner/sunset sail with Captain Joe the last night of our honeymoon/wedding trip. Our friends joined us and it was our favorite thing we did, which says a lot because there are so many amazing things to see and do on St. John. Dinner was sooooo good. The man can cook! After sailing around, we anchored at Caneel... More

We are 4 couples (NC, MD) who went out with Capt Joe and Mary on April 29th. They were very accommodating and let us chose where we wanted to go but also made some suggestions of places we had never snorkeled in previous trips. The snorkeling was amazing. It was a blustery day but Capt Joe was able to maneuver... More

Captain Joe and first mate Mary made this memorable for all seven of us. Booked online with easy correspondence with Joe. I couldn't be happier that I decided to do a private charter. If you actually want to sail, this is the only way to go. Joe is the real deal, actually living the dream I have had for a... More

Joe is an excellent chef. Everyone loved the food, we had the Chicken Tacos and the afternoon appetizer of shrimp in garlic and butter with cheese... More

This was my first time being on a chartered boat tour and I think the biggest thing that you have to take home with Captain Joe is that you're coming onto his boat which is also his home. If you realize this beforehand then you're much more apt to treat his boat with respect and the whole trip will be... More

Captain Joe delivered a great day. We were traveling with our family consisting of 12 people aged 4 months to 64 years with a very feisty 3 year old. From the minute we got on scrappy-du (the dingy) to our return to the dock, everything went well. Captain Joe and his crew fed us great food, drinks and information. We... More

Our family of 12 had an outstanding day sailing with Captain Joe on Scubadu. A beautiful boat in exceptional condition, with a knowledgeable, salty, capable captain at the helm. We sailed throughout the Virgin Islands and snorkeled at fabulous spots. The lunch of chicken and fish tacos was excellent; a special meal graciously presented. Bottomless rum punch and bloody marys... More

We chartered Scubadu and were not disappointed. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. Very understanding with a group of 12 including two small children. Lunch that was provided was one of my best meals the whole week! Captain Joe's mahi tacos are unreal. I'd charter again just for those. Great day on the water that I'd do again in a... More
