My wife, our 2 teen daughters, and myself just returned from our first, but not last vacation on St John. By far the highlight of the vacation was the day trip w Captain Rick. We were unsure of which spots we should hit. He took care of that. You can tell that he truly cares about making this a unique... More

Well, as usual (and after 10 trips to St John), we had our usual "what might we get this time" when we reserved a day trip with Capt. Rick of Lion in da Sun. Rick picked us up below Great Expectations villa in Chocolate Hole Bay, so we didn't need to load up the car and haul everyone over to... More

Our party of three hired Rick to see some off-the-beaten path snorkel spots around St. John and St. Thomas. Over the course of the day, he took us to five truly fantastic spots - Stevens Bay, Shipwreck Cove, Christmas Cove, Secret Harbor for lunch, Leinster Bay, and Whistling Cay. Each had a distinctly different snorkel opportunity, and were by far... More

My family of all adults visited St. John in February and chose to do a boat trip as an activity one day. This was one of my favorite parts of the week vacation...it was nice to have our group of six and the captain...and not be on a party barge with a bunch of people we didn't know. Being on... More

Hey Ali, It was great to hear that you had an "amazing time" the day you spent on our boat tour. As the captain it is always gratifying to know that I left my guests with the best impression possible. Your words sound as if this was achieved but the score of 4 out of 5 stars suggest something different.... More

We had a day in which life long memories were made. Captain Rick and Carrie were fabulous hosts finding out what our interests were and making sure to fulfill them. Rick is very knowledgable about the history of the Islands and shared many interesting stories. The boat was very comfortable and we enjoyed cruising around St. John and visiting Willy... More

My family had a great day boating with Rick. He picked us up in Cruz Bay at 8:30am and dropped us back off around 5:00pm. Rick is very knowledgeable, personable and knows the waters and bays very well. We also went over to the BVI’s. Stopped at all the “Hot Spots”-Foxy’s Soggy Dollar etc. It is a trip I would... More

Capt Rick knows how to show his guests a good time. We enjoyed it all.....the bulls**t stories, the snorkeling, lunch at Roxy's Taboo, almost getting marooned on Sandy Spit, and great beach bars. No hurries, no worries. The boat is fast and comfortable for a large group. Thanks for a great day!!

One of the best days out of our 2 weeks stay on St. John. Rick was very accommodating and friendly when I called to make a reservation. Rick took 5 of us around St. John and gave us a ton of interesting history of the islands and then proceded to take us to Jost Van Dyke where we hung out... More

You will not be disappointed! Our full day charter trip started a little later than expected due to the weather, but I was pleased that Captain Rick made our safely a priority as I am not overly comfortable on the water. Captain Rick's pristine boat was well-equipt and he was the perfect tour guide for our unplanned journey. We experience... More
