We just returned from our 18th trip to St. Thomas. While we were there, we took a trip with Captain Rick on the Lion in Da Sun. This was our 4th consecutive year to do this trip. Each year, Captain Rick comes up with something new for us to see or experience. This year it was snorkeling at Caravel Rock.... More

No lying, the best powerboat charter in STT & STJ! This was the highlight of our family trip to St John. We let Captain Rick pick the agenda after we told him what we wanted to do and see. It was a perfect mix of beautiful beaches, great snorkeling and we capped the day off with a visit to the... More

We just chartered LIDS for a BVI trip. We had 5 visitors from Denmark who wanted a tour of the best the BVI had to offer for snorkeling and fun places to see the real Caribbean. Captain Rick was responsive, showed up on time and delivered what he promised without a hitch. He was fun to be with, well versed... More

I've never had a better time on a boat than I did with Captain Rick on Lion In Da Sun. Rick showed my family and I all of the places no other chartered boat shows. My dream of swimming with sea turtles came true on our adventure and I couldn't thank Rick enough for that. Riding on Lion In Da... More

Rick he was excellent, his knowledge of the area was great, his knowledge of the History of the Islands was unbeleivable and he made our day with him terrific. I am already... More

We spent the day with Captain Rick and had such a wonderful time. He was the perfect balance of informative but not overly pushy. He was very knowledgeable about the Islands and their history, sharing fun facts as we cruised from island to island. I have to say, I never write reviews about my vacations, good or bad, and cruising... More

We are seasoned travelers to St. Thomas and have been on Captain Rick's boat four times in the past four years. That alone should give you an idea of what we think of Captain Rick and his trip. Every year when we plan our trip to St. Thomas, we plan all of our activities around when we can go on... More
