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.

Dave was our captain on our 45-minute trip from St. Thomas to St. John and he narrated both ways. He was very interesting and we learned a lot even though we had been there many times. Very enjoyable and he shared his many adventures of the islands. We were on a ship's excursion and he made it fun.

Thank you Mike on Island Girl, for a fantastic sail and snorkeling excursion. Mike was right on time to pick us up and take us to Buck Island. When we arrived he handed out snorkeling gear and told us where the best snorkeling was. He told us funny sailing stories all the way back. We all had a great time... More
