Join the US Coast Guard certified professional crew of the newly refit, impeccably maintained, sailing yacht Fury on a 1/2 day excursion to Swim with the Giant Green Sea Turtles at the National Wildlife Marine Sanctuary at Buck Island. Here you will encounter a variety of sea life, including stingrays, conch, starfish, tropical fish and up to 20 endangered green sea turtles feeding "naturally" along our beautiful, calm, protected coral reef. Fury is not one of those large, overcrowded cattlemarans, Fury is a classic 46' Morgan Ketch with a maximum capacity of 25 passengers, providing a superior experience and unparalleled service for our guests. Plenty of shade for the fair-skinned under the custom bimini. We will even pick you up at the Havensite Cruiseship Dock with our boat. NO CAB RIDES! NO HASSLES! Don't miss this unique and popular wildlife experience! FURY IS A NON-SMOKING VESSEL. « less

Great excursion! It was a little crowded at the island with many other boats there, but there were plenty of turtles around and you could find one to watch on your own. Capt. Mike and Nikki were very professional, friendly and entertaining.

We booked a "swim with the sea turtles" excursion on the Fury with Captain Mike and Nikki. The excursion was WONDERFUL. We saw several turtles, and much closer than expected. Mike and Nikki do a really good job of making sure that the turtles are not touched or disturbed, and that their guests respect the marine life as well as... More

Had a GREAT trip with Captain Mike and Nikki! They both did a great job. Mike was friendly, informative, and laid back. Nikki was an excellent snorkeling guide and very pretty. My only regret is that I did not bring any cash with me on board to tip Nikki. I would rate the overall trip 5 stars and would strongly... More

Capt. Mike and Nikki were great. They made sure our entire family of four were comfortable and taken care of. We snorkeled with some turtles and had a beautiful sail to and from the island. It was a small group of people which we enjoyed.

We had a great time with Capt Mike and Nikki and s/v Fury! They were very professional, funny and knowledgable of the local history and of the sea life we were snorkelling with. The sail out and back from Buck island was super. The water was clear and we saw a lot of turtles, sting rays and countless fish. Rum... More

Swimming with the turtles was wonderful. As promised we saw several turtles some only a few feet away. We also say a mantra ray as well. The weather was great and the sailing was perfect.

Mike the captain and Nikki were AWESOME. Super laid back, very easy to talk to and made sure you had lots of fun. My husband would go again just to ride on their beautiful sailboat. I love that it wasnt touristy and 150 people werent crammed on some hokey pirate ship serving watered down rum punch. This was a top... More

My husband, son and I visited St. Thomas on Tuesday, March 25 and booked a trip with Fury Charters after reading all of the great reviews on Trip Advisor and Cruise Critic and I must say it was a great decision. Mike was very helpful in the booking process and although we traded emails and calls we finally connected and... More

As a very novice swimmer and (obviously) snorkler, I was very nervous to go out and try this. However, Nikki and Mike were extremely sweet. We went to Buck and met some sea turtles and saw real life "Finding Nemo." Because it was such a calm day, we got to go all the way around the island and it was... More

Best snorkel experience of our lives! Mike and Nikki were a great team of sailors and tour guides. Smooth sailing, cold beverages, and unforgettable sites made for a great afternoon. A must do when in St Thomas!
