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

Captain Mike and skipper Dan were fantastic! We chartered the boat for a bachelorette party and had such an amazing time. The snorkeling with turtles, the private beach and the constant attention and hospitality made this so very perfect for our group. There was thirteen of us, and all of us had such an amazing time (sea sickness and all).... More

Excellent day of sailing and snorkeling! We had rougher seas with the passing of a tropical storm and I was super impressed with the care and attention Captain Mike took with a seasick passenger. The rest of us basked in the thrill of the sail. I took two grandchildren and Dan was amazing with them in the water - leading... More

My family of 6 sailed with Captain Mike and First Mate Dan in late June on Fury. We were overwhelmed with the snorkeling experience as well as the hospitality of these two fine men. And we were impressed with their flexibility and willingness to adjust when our ship was late getting into port. (And just so you know, Dan is... More

We attempted to book an excursion with Fury/ Capt Mike prior to our departure on the website. did contact him for a particular day & received a response that that day wasn't available, so we filled out the form & requested another day & also requested a response since we were leaving in 2 days. Never got a response to... More

This reviewer was confirmed on our trip that day as a credit card was given to hold that reservation. Once a credit card is submitted, your party is confirmed. A confirmation email is sent out immediately, explaining where we meet, what to bring etc. Evidently, the guest didn't receive this email or it went into his junk file. Not sure.... More

We just arrived home from our cruise and the highlight of our trip was most definitely the Fury Sailboat Snorkel. The professionalism of Captain Mike and Dan were second to none. They both went out of there way to make sure my 9 year old daughter had the time of her life. Furthermore, the sailboat is the only way to... More

Thanks, Mike and Dan. Our group of eight (from Minnesota) all had a great time. The sailing, snorkeling, and the turtles were awesome, but not to be overlooked is how terrific Mike and Dan were as our hosts. They made us feel welcome, were entertaining, and their only concern seemed to be us having a truly memorable experience. Our group... More

What a fantastic day aboard the Fury with Captain Mike and 1st Mate Dan. To avoid the crowds with booking an excursion on our cruise ship, I found Fury Charters on-line and booked directly with them. I am so glad I did as we had a wonderful day sailing out to Buck Island to snorkel with the sea turtles. The... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. The viewing board for kids and adults alike have been a blessing for our guests with kids who aren't ready for the full snorkeling experience. Glad you had a great time with us aboard Fury! More

We just returned from our vacation today, and our favorite thing from the entire week at sea was our sailing and snorkeling charter aboard the Fury with Captain Mike and Dan. They were funny, knowledgeable and the trip they offer is a small charter which is was a way better experience than being crammed on a boat with 150 other... More

We sailed with Captain Mike and Dan while vacationing on St. Thomas the first week in July. We wanted to introduce our children to snorkeling in the open water, but were concerned about taking them on a full day excursion for their first time on a boat in the ocean. This trip was a perfect introduction for our 12 year... More

We went on this charter in March and Captain Mike was great! He was very knowledgeable and fun! We swam with turtles, snorkels over gorgeous reef and had a beautiful sailboat ride over. Best thing I did during a cruise. Well worth it!!
