We had a terrific half day with Bob Cruising over gorgeous seas, comfortably and ably brought to secluded snorkeling spots. My family was looked after, informed and entertained through the experience. Bob is terrifically knowledgable and most importantly a fun dude to be around. The turtles I saw floating in the broken sunlight above coral was the highlight. Felt great... More

We spent a glorious day on the water with Captain Bob on the Tropicat. Everything was perfect. His boat was clean and well-stocked. Bob was a good host and very informative. He handled customs on both ends. He took to exactly the ports we wanted to check out. We would cruise with Bob again next time we're on St John.

Wow, where do I start! We spent an unforgettable day on the water with Capt. Bob. It was my birthday, and he made sure turning 33 was the best day I've ever had. The boat was amazing! Super clean, so much room, and it was so quiet. The boat cut through the water like a glove. I've never felt so... More

Capt. Bob created a day full of wonderful memories as our family spent the day on the water. Fun in the sun, snorkeling, boating, touring the Virgin Islands by motor boat. Capt Bob is quite knowledgable of the area and willing to share his knowledge and experience. What a great day!

This past vacation we spent 2 days with Captain Bob, venturing to the BVI again and "going local", and he once again outpaced our greatest expectations! With his seemingly unfathomable knowledge of the islands, we were treated to the best days of our journey by Bob using his experience of the hidden treasures and able seamanship - there's simply just...

This is our second time touring with captain Bob. We decided to stay local this time and had the most memorable day. Bob is so great at customizing his tours to ensure you have the most amazing day! The boat tours with Bob have become the highlight of our trip. We can't wait to see him again next year.
