Description: SWIM WITH THE TURTLES SNORKEL SAIL! The #1 excursion in Charlotte Amalie...
SWIM WITH THE TURTLES SNORKEL SAIL! The #1 excursion in Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas just got a whole lot better! 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.

Booked this as a private trip as part of our cruise itinerary while in USVI. We had been to St Thomas before a few times but had never snorkeled and didn't want to take the large group Carnival tour. The meeting point to find Capt Mke is the marina next to the Buckhead port (Carnival and some ships also port... More

This is a great trip. The crew gave a lot of information. We were snorkeling for at least one hour. Drinks going back to the harbor were good. A good trip and worth going.

We have gone out on the fury at least four previous times while visiting St. Thomas. This was the best. Great weather, great crowd, and the most turtle action ever. Sometimes there would be three turtles together at a time. I also saw two stingrays, a barracuda, and a huge crab in a conch shell crawling by a turtle. We... More

Bad First: At times, I felt Mike was a little unprofessional. My wife felt he was a little rude when we first booked with him. He was about 10 minutes late to meet everyone for the excursion and nearing the end of the trip, he and his female helper talked about some of his prior passengers that they had not... More

Captain MIke and Jenna were great! The sail trip was not over crowded like some of the others. We were taken to Buck Island and were able to swim near the turtles, rays, and fish.

We had a great time sailing with Fury Charters. They were really easy to get to. Just get off the ship and walk next door to the marina. We had an awesome time sailing over to buck island to swim with the sea turtles. Mike and Cali were really friendly and made for a really nice trip. They were also... More

We took the Fury to Buck island (turtle preserve). It was my first time on a sail boat and what a great experience. Captain Mike and Cali were very attentive. Cali showed us some great snorkeling spots and stayed in the water to point out turtles. We saw quite a few turtles. It was a great day. The sailboat is... More

We can't say enough about our morning sail with Captain Mike and Cali! We sailed from St. Thomas to Turtle Cove. It was my families first time sailing and it was the best thing we have ever done on any vacation. Captain Mike was extremely informative and funny and Cali was the perfect guide once we were in the water... More

We booked this trip at home. Went with a cruiseship to the Carribean. We had our first day snorkling on Turks island booked with the cruiseship. Second excursion day with fury charter. What a difference. The cruise excursion was short, with 60 people and only attention for selling pictures. Fury Charters with captain Mike was a real difference! Only 16... More

We had a fantastic time with Capt Mike and Callie. They are both very personable and make the journey very fun. Once we got to buck island they were quick to get the instructions done so we could get in the water and swim with the turtles. We saw quite a few, watched them eat at the bottom, then come... More
