Our party of four was looking for an all-day sail cruise and snorkel trip. The Adventure Desk at the Marriott we were staying at suggested Island Girl and Captain Mike. We signed up 3-4 days before sailing. Everything went smoothly. As noted in a few other reviews, Mike picks up passengers in a dinghy. Some might find this less than... More

We took this excursion through HAL to Trunk Bay on St. John. The crew of Island Girl was very knowledgeable and informative. Dave gave us a wealth of information regarding life on the island as well as pointing out homes of several famous people. On the way back, he sold soda and beer for a modest price. It was cold...

We were on a HAL cruise and took the excursion to Saint John on the Island Girl. The crew were very knowledgeable and pleasant. The only hitch was that they had to pick up passengers from another cruise ship at another dock but they were not on the dock when we arrived so we had to wait about another half... More

Took this side trip (not through the Jewel of the seas, which we were cruising on). Had a wonderful and relaxing day with Mike and Debbie. They are extremely easy to be with, have a great sense of humor and are very knowledgeable about the islands, having lived there several years. The snorkeling spot at Buck Island was full of...

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
