We took a full day trip with Captain Bob. It was the best thing we did during our trip on St. John. We got so see so many new places that we would never have known were there. Personal favorites were the Baths at Virgin Gorda and the Pirates Bight bar and restaurant on Norman Island! Bob was the perfect... More

This past March we vacationed in St. John. Overall our most memorable day is when we went out with Captain Bob on a snorkeling expedition. Not only was the Captain extremely friendly, very knowledgable about the island and attractions and he took us to a fantastic restaurant for lunch that served the freshest lobster!

This is the second year in a row we have booked charters with Captain Bob. His deep knowledge of the island, especially the tucked-away bays and spots where St. John is most natural and unspoiled, makes for a day of spectacular snorkeling. Whereas other excursions or charters have set destinations, Captain Bob will tailor the trip based on the favorability... More

Each time we visit St. John we go out with Captain Bob. He works hard to customize our trip to meet our needs. This year we wanted calm waters where we could snorkel and take photos. He NEVER disappoints. Not only is he a conscientious captain looking out for the safety of his guests, his knowledge of the island is... More

Just returning from our third trip to St John and our third time going out with Captain Bob. We love the island and everything it has to offer, but by far our greatest time all three years has been our time spent on the boat with Captain Bob. His knowledge of the islands makes the trip that much better. Embarrassingly,... More

If you are looking for a truly customized, non-touristy experience on the water, then Captain Bob is your man! the boat is very stable and comfortable and... More

We just came back from a trip with Captain Bob. We hit the best snorkeling places we have ever been to. Aside from the extremely nice and clean boat the best part of the trip was Bob's knowledge of the seas and the Islands. Bob has been boating in these waters for almost 30 years. He knows all the History... More

We've been visiting St.John for over 20 years, and I wish I knew about Bob many years ago! Bob's knowledge of the sea, weather and islands, coupled with his wit and wisdom, made this the best trip we've had yet (we'll challenge him again in the future!). We were able to visit places we haven't been before, avoided the worst... More

If you want to have a customized day of touring the islands on a great boat with a great captain, Bob is the right guy for you!! We charted the boat with another couple to see parts of the islands not accessible to tourists. Captain Bob took us to the most amazing snorkel spots and beaches all around St. Johns.... More
