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.

I can't express in words how amazing it was to use Copeland Boat Charters! From the first contact I had with Capt. Benny via email (for a short notice charter) to the moment we said goodbye it was perfect. We were on zcoozie for the day-my parents were worried about comfort on a zodiac but for 4 adults it was...

Great experience out on water. We would highly recommend Ben Copeland if you are heading out to St John and want a wonderful experience. We had th eopportunity to swim with sea turtles in 3 of the locations Ben choose for us, as well as octopus, eel, and many other residents... He was fun and has great knowledge of the... More

It was our first time to the USVI and we knew we loved being on the water. As a family of 5 we had been on charters that had big crowds where we didn't really get the experience we were looking for. I have to say that the charter with Ben was amazing. It was less like being on a... More

This was an awesome day from start to finish. Capt. Ben is so accommodating and knowledgeable. We saw so many sights and snorkeled the caves, the indians, and other spots with amazing reefs and sea life. We also stopped at Foxy's Taboo for lunch which was also a treat. I highly recommend Copeland and Capt. Ben!

Our day on the water with Copeland Boat Charters was absolutely the best day of our vacation! They should absolutely be at the top of your "Must-Do" list in St. John! My husband and I traveled with another couple and were able to go out for the day with Captain Ben and his wonderful son and 1st Mate in Training,... More

Spent my birthday on the water with my wife and 3 daughters along with Captain Benny. Just a great guy who made us all feel welcome and showed us a great time on the water. He was awesome in getting my wife, who is deathly afraid of the ocean, to actually swim around and peek down at the sea life... More

My family and I couldn't be happier with our experience with Ben and Copeland Charters. Whether you're looking for a calmer trip or a day that's action packed, I think you'd be hard pressed to find a charter captain who's more capable and enthusiastic about making his guests feel at home. Ben was incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the booking... More

My husband and I wanted to charter a boat to get a better look at Saint John, its beaches, and some of the surrounding islands. We could not have been more pleased with Copeland Boat Charters! They were right on time and our Captain, Thomas, was just the most pleasant young man. We spent 4 hours on the water, learning... More

My family recently chartered two boats with Ben from Copeland Boat Charters. Ben and Thomas gave us a first rate tour around the VI and the BVI... They had a six passenger boat (The Beer Cooler) as well as a 4 passenger boat. The boats were clean and in great shape. We toured several different islands throughout the day and... More
