This was our second trip out with Joe. I can say without any reservation that the day we spent on Scubadu was the best day of each of our vacations! Joe is a wonderful captain, obviously a very knowledgeable and experienced sailor. He has great stories and a wonderful sense of humor! And the man is an expert chef on... More

This was our third time sailing with Scubadu so it is obvious we love the boat, the captain and the whole experience. In addition to a beautiful sail the food prepared by Joe is excellent. Hope to enjoy our 4th sail and dinner next year!

We chartered the sailboat Scubadu for a full day sail and snorkling trip while we were staying on St. John. Joe Mellen, the captain and owner, Mary (first mate), and Phil (captain in training), were all very gracious and made a trip a real pleasure. The pick-up at the National Park dock seemed like rush hour in the city, but... More

Captain Joe and Allison met my family and I (4 people) right at the St. John marina and took us on a sail to die for. Equipped with lunch, every hot sauce on the planet and cocktails, it was a day straight out of paradise. I would go back in a heartbeat!

We were staying in St. John and wanted to charter a sailboat for one day. I looked a lot of options and spoke to several places, and decided on Scubadu based on my conversation with the captain and the reviews I had heard. Very glad we went with Scubadu because we had a blast. Got to snorkel some really cool... More

The drinks were delicious and plentiful. The food was superb! We did an all day sail on Scubadu around St John. Stopping to swim and snorkel from time... More

Joe, Mary, and Potter were perfect hosts to our day on the water in St. Thomas! We sailed to a couple of snorkle spots that were awesome, had a relaxing lunch that Joe cooked himself and were completely relaxed the entire day. What a great way to spend a day in St. Thomas. We had the boat to outselves (three... More
