The friendly captain and crew took us from St. Thomas, the very pier our ship was docked on, over to St. Johns for a day to play. Captain Jack's knowledge of the islands and the local events past and present was delightful. The cruise over was pleasant. The ride back was enjoyable with unlimited fresh pours of a delicious Rum... More

We took a day tour from the Marriott resort to St. John and loved it. Captain Jack gave an entertaining narration on the trip to the island and then we were given a narrated guided tour to several beautiful spots on St. John's. We had two hours at the gorgeous Truck Bay beach including a chance to snorkle along an... More

My family and I absolutely loved this boat ride. The captain was funny and very informational, the staff was funny and talkative on the ride home, and they served a delicious rum punch to the guests. I would definitely do it again. :)

We actually booked this ferry thru our cruise line, Royal Caribbean, as a way to get to St. John. We expected a ride. We got that and more. The captain did a GREAT job pointing out all the sites in route and provided lots of interesting/humorous narration. The rum punch on the return was excellent....and never-ending! The best port day... More

The best boat trip ever from St. Thomas to St.John on October 17,2014. Jack the captain,and Jerrin ship mate was the best. Another ship mate, I did not get his name but together all three of them gave a tour that educated you on the history of the islands, that would be Jack the Captain. Jerrin assisted the safari driver,... More

We were on a cruise and booked Independent Sea Tours to see St. John. The ride there was very informative, but very wet! You will get wet if you are on the lower level! They then took us around St. John and showed us where different beaches were located and looking at different parts of the island. At the end... More

Had a wonderful time with the family exploring St. John and snorkeling in Trunk Bay. Tour started off at Fisherman's Reef and it was a great 35 min. boat ride filled with Island history narrated by Capt. Jack himself. The guides (Capt. Jacks crew) themselves were awesome as well as they stay with you the whole time while on St.... More

Took an excursion this past week with Freedom of the Seas (RCCL) and Captain Jack and his crew were great! They had great information on the way to St. John, and on the way back had some excellent rum punch and were generally awesome. Definitely recommend them!

We took this trip yesterday July 18, 2014. It went straight from our hotel dock at the Marriott Frenchman's Reef, which was a big plus so we did not have to get a taxi to Charlotte Amalie. The crew was excellent. Very friendly and the tour guide information was very informative. Then we took an island tour of St. John... More
