Description: The Most Affordable Charters on St John! Two Boats with Several Options...
The Most Affordable Charters on St John! Two Boats with Several Options! 26 ft World Cat or 21ft Zodiac. Up for an adventure? Try our new 21ft Zodiac; it's fast & fun and great for affordable Half Day Charters or our Jost only trip. Charter our 26ft Worldcat and go Island hopping, Snorkeling or to a remote beach to just relax in the warm waters of the Caribbean. Why not spend your vacation exploring the US and British Virgin Islands on a private captained boat charter. We enjoy having kids on board and have added children's snorkel gear to our fine selection of equipment. Bring the kids with you and we'll provide some beach toys for them to play with.

Depending on the size of our group we use two charters in St. John, Copeland Boat Charters is our go -to when the group is only 6 people. Ben is super helpful, kind and very knowledgeable of the area. It is always the highlight of our week to do a private day charter when visiting. I highly recommend that all... More

Spending the day on the Beer Cooler with Captain Ben was, by far, the most fun day of our trip to St. John! The trip was completely tailored to what we asked for, and we got to visit several amazing spots in both St. John and the BVI, while still having a completely relaxing day. The highlight of the trip... More

Ben was wonderful and tailored our trip to exactly what we asked for. Even changing things up mid-trip didn't bother him at all. He listened to what we were looking for and took us to the perfect places to meet our requests. Really enjoyed our time with Capt. Ben and would highly recommend him and the Beer Cooler for anyone...

Thanks Captain Ben for a terrific day! My husband, daughter Madison and I loved seeing the sea turtles and numerous fish. Captain Ben is personable and made the trip relaxing and fun. We will charter his boat next year when we return to St. John.

Recently six of us (Adults) spent the day on the water with Captain Ben and enjoyed a first class experience. From the initial contact , thru the booking process and to the time we stepped off the boat back onto the dock Captain Ben was responsiveness/professional and a great guy to spend the day with.

We chartered a boat with Captain Ben the day after we renewed our wedding vows. With our four-year old and our seven-year old, we were not sure what to expect, and we were delighted with our experience! Captain Ben was attentive, informative, and extra careful of bringing us to snorkel sites that would be perfect for the kids! My husband... More

We had the most AMAZING time with captain Ben. He was friendly, knew just where to take us, and made our trip memorable. We stopped at several amazing snorkeling spots, had lunch on a remote island, and ended the day floating on a white sandy beach with a drink in our hand. This is absolutely worth it if you are...

After researching different companies Captain Ben was the best in communication, ideas for the day and overall friendliness. We chose to go out on the Beer Cooler even though it was just two of us the bigger boat and extra shade is highly recommended. He was great on the boat from arranging to pick us up to save time to...

Captain Ben made our trip to the BVI's wonderful and special. We've done no less than 10 trips on various charters and Copeland provided one of the best experiences we've ever had. Working with Ben, we crafted our special day to exactly what we wanted to do. He even showed us a new spot to snorkel in Watermelon Cay that... More

Our day on the water with Ben at Copeland Boat Charters was perfect! We scheduled the trip over email and the communication was quick and clear. Once on the boat, Ben was friendly and outgoing. He took us to 3 amazing spots and patiently got us all snorkeling in minutes. The scenery was wonderful and the day could not have... More
