This was our 5th or 6th vacation in the Islands. We have always included day sails in our vacations but this was the first time we chartered with Shooting Star Charters. If I had to pick one favorite thing about our week in the Islands this trip it would have to be spending the day with Captain Bob & Gina.... More

My husband and I went to St. Thomas on our honeymoon and were fortunate enough to meet Captain Bob and the now, Captain Gina at our resort. After talking to several other people and getting rave reviews about their charter, we were happy to find out 3 people were going to Tortola on the Shooting Star and invited us along.... More

Just got back yesterday from a charter day trip with Captain Bob and Gina on Shooting Star Charters from St Thomas to Tortola with snorkeling and swimming stop at Christmas Cove. Perfect Weather, Calm Seas, great food and snacks, great selection of beer, wine and drinks. Bob and Gina cater their charters to their customers desires and have great humor... More

We took the trip to The Baths at Virgin Gorda with Captain Bob and Gina. We also snorkeled at the caves on Normal Island. Captain Bob was very knowledgeable about the area and he guided our tour of the Baths. Gina was incredibly attentive to our every need and cooked us a delicious dinner. It felt like we were cruising... More

After going on trips with Bob and Gina aboard the Mary E. on previous visits to St. Thomas we were excited to learn that they now offer an all-day trip to Jost Van Dyke. It was undoubtedly the best day of our vacation. It was the only day we used an alarm to get up but it was worth it... More

We booked this charter along with another couple we met at our resort. It was outstanding to say the least. Our taxi driver, K9 Joe, picked us up at 8:30 AM and we headed to the boat. Gina was ready with coffee cake and coffee and off we started for the tip of St. John. A great snorkeling spot where... More

In early October of 2011, myself, my wife, and my 2-year-old daughter had the pleasure of travelling with Bob & Gina of Shooting Star Charters. Bob and Gina run an all-day or all-week boating charter. Along with 2 other couples, we took their 42' yacht on a leisurely voyage along the north shore of St. John. We spent a good... More

I recently treated my husband to a long weekend (4 days) to St Thomas for his 50th birthday, and was worried that I would regret taking a full day boat trip to BVI with only having 4 days on the island. And now, I would say if you have just ONE DAY - THIS TRIP IS A MUST!!! Captain Bob... More

What a wonderful day we had with Captain Bob and Gina! They are the perfect hosts, have great stories and are wonderful representatives of island hospitality. We spent time in Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Cay and then a little snorkling in Water Lemon Cay. It was all topped off with a wonderful dinner and delightful conversation on the boat that... More

Shooting Star Charters was absolutely phenomenal. Captain Bob and First Mate Gina gave excellent service through out the stay. Gina went over and beyond with preparing meals; many people had strict dietary regimens and she was able to cater to every-ones needs. Shooting Star Charters also allowed the group to dictate the flow of the trip- by never rushing or... More
