We spent two days aboard the Lion in Da Sun. Island hopping, snorkeling and enjoying the open waters, First day with Captain Hudson - such fun! Next day with Captain Rick visiting new sites and what a day! The best way to visit the islands on your "own" boat.

We were on a cruise ship and St. Thomas was one of our stops. We booked Captain Rick a month in advance. He was very prompt in getting back to me and taking our reservation. I had one special request and that was a fishing pole for my 8 yr old son. Captain Rick said that most of the water... More

Captain Rick was super friendly, and extremely knowledgeable and we had so much fun! Learned a lot about the VI history and had a blast jumping off the boat into the crystal clear water! Sandy spit was my favorite spot!

As a family from abroad (Denmark), we had a great day power boating, snorkelling and BVI island hopping with Captain Rick aboard the Lion In Da Sun. His snorkelling equipment was excellent; his knowledge of the islands entertaining and his caring manner was spiced with a New Jersey sense of humor. We clearly recommend Rick and his boat and will... More

My family of 5 spent a day with Captain Rick on his great boat, Lion In Da Sun. It was the highlight of our week in St. John. Captain Rick was a super nice guy and very likable. He was very knowledgeable about all of the places he took us. He let us plan our day out but also gave... More
