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

Capt Joe and Mary provided our family a fantastic experience last Friday. We were on a private charter for the afternoon. They promptly arrived as scheduled at St. John and then took us to three great snorkel locations. The lunch served was Joe's famous Mahi Mahi fish tacos with a tasty mango salsa. What a treat. We ended our cruise... More

First, we have been customers of Joe and the Scubadu for MANY years. We have LOVED each and every adventure we take together. This past year, we again had the pleasure of sailing with his excellent mate (and Sushi Chef at Fishtales) Eric. For this adventure, we brought along another couple who have recently moved to the BVIs. Joe was... More

We had a group of 9 from California spending a week on St John, and we were very much looking forward to our day on the water with Joe. I must say this was by far the best day of our week!! Joe and Mary were awesome!! They could not have made us feel more comfortable and welcomed. They basically... More
