What a great day. We choose this adventure because of the smaller boat and smaller group. It was an amazing day, and by the end of the trip we felt like we had made new friends with our fellow travellers. Captain Al and Megan made sure we were all comfortable and wanted for nothing. The visit to the Baths was... More

We spent the day with Captain Al on the Virgin Gorda Baths/Jost Van Dyke tour. It was excellent all the way around. Captain Al is really great guide who had a wonderful sense of humor and was very informative. We found the boat to just the right size. It's 42' and there are just 12 guests so it's not private,...

Stormy Petrel and Pirate's Penny Tours We took a similar tour last year and were a little disappointed. What a change. Captain Jug and first mate Dena made it a memorable experience. Both of them were very knowledgeable about everything we encountered. Captain Jug opened a map on the floor and explained the trip along many stories about St John... More

This trip was fabulous! We did a similar trip last year with another company (New Horizon/Breakaway-I posted a review this time last year) which doesn't come anywhere close to what these guys are about. First - crowd control. They only take a max of 12 people, we were 8 which was totally perfect. On our trip on Breakaway, we were... More

Captain Al and his first mate, Megan, were just terrific on our trip on Pirate's Penny. Their wealth of knowledge and experience made our trip (three couples) as good as it gets. We swam and snorkeled in some beautiful spots and never felt rushed or pressured. Al knows St. John and the BVI's like the back of his hand, and... More

Captain Jug and Megan were the perfect crew for this trip. They were extremely inviting onto the boat. They kept all of us passengers (9) informed of our trip, the sights along the way, and their experiences on the islands. We stated on St Thomas, and were quickly passing St John on our way to the BVI. Exploring the Baths... More

Everything about this trip was perfect. You couldn't ask for a better captain and first mate than Jug and Dena. They were both experienced and friendly - really made sure everyone had a great time. Best of all, I finally learned to snorkel after many failed attempts thanks to them. Memories of a lifetime! From the experience of making the... More

Had a perfect day with Capt Jug and Thomas. Boat trip to Virgin Gorda, Cooper Island, and Snorkeling. Best trip in the islands hands down.

My husband and I had a fabulous day on board the Stormy Petrel, heading from St. Thomas/St. John to the BVIs. Captain Jug and his first mate Thomas were super nice and very attentive, they had loads of great stories and interesting information to impart. There were 12 guests total on board which is the max that they book for... More

My husband Dale and I enjoyed a day trip to BVI--Virgin Gorda, lunch at Cooper Island, and snorkeled the Indians! Wow, what a great time and we loved how there was only 12 passengers. We got so much attention and information on the islands from our captain and mate. This company made sure every detail was taken care of! We... More
