Had a great time last week on a full-day excursion. Mike was very gracious, friendly and helpful; gave us lots of interesting history. Meals, snacks and drinks were plentiful and very nice. Snorkeling was great, he picked great spots for us, and he let us stay at each of our 'stops' as long as we wanted. Not a fancy boat,... More

First thing was you have no option except paypal for a down payment. There was a big lack of communication as to where we would meet the boat. I wasn't told to look for a dingy which took us to the boat. The boat ladder was made of rope and 2x4's, with a strong current it was difficult to climb.... More

This one was average. The owner Mike is warm and friendly. The snorkeling was disappointing on Bucks Island. Did it on St John last year. Much better. This boat docks right next to the cruise terminal which is very nice, no taxi needed, whereas to do the St John side need to taxi 30 minutes to Red Hook on other... More

We took this tour as one recommended on the Princess Regal. It was excellent and we really enjoyed it. Dave provided a great overview of the islands and the crew was great. Trunk Bay provided the perfect setting to swim, snorkel and relax. The white shady beach with the blue-green waters of Trunk Bay for snorkerling was amazing. Best tour... More

We went over to Trunk Bay, St. John from St. Thomas when on a Norwegian Getaway cruise. GREAT time. The people were very nice and helped us and we got a "free" tour as we traveled across to the island. I'd highly recommend this if you have a chance to get on the boat. LOVED IT!!

Like another reviewer, we were on an excursion to Trunk Bay on St. John from our Princess Cruise. The trip over, with constant amusing and interesting narration from the crew of Island Girl, was fantastic. Couldn't have asked for better.

Our family of adults was on a Disney Caribbean Cruise which stopped in St. Thomas. In planning our excursions, we decided to charter our own boat for the day to do some snorkeling and sailing and chose the ketch, Island Girl. We all agreed it was the best part of the whole cruise. Captain and owner, Mike, met us as... More

We were part of a Royal Caribbean excursion to Trunk Bay. We had a great experience on Island Girl, with great information and narrative by the captain -- all of the local flavor was much appreciated and very interesting. The ship was well turned-out and the crew was attentive and thoughtful.
