The Most Affordable Charters on St John! Two Boats with Several...

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.

Ben and Jennifer met us on the dock to board the beer cooler and you would have thought we had known each other for years. We had a great time cruising around the north shore spots with the rest of the day in the BVI's. Ben was knowledgable with the hot spots to snorkel and was gracious in helping my... More

My husband and I shared an incredible day with Capt Ben. Hit all of the best spots in the BVI's on a full day Charter, some that we decided on the fly. We made a new friend in Ben and the day was better than we hoped when it was planned. If you are on St. John, this is a... More

We went out with Ben for the day in mid October, and it was one of the best days our family has experienced. Ben is like one of your old friends- he treats you like you've know him for years, and he does everything he can to make sure everything is taken care of. He has a GoPro camera on... More

Copeland Marine was so accommodating and we had an amazing day aboard the Beer Cooler. We reserved a full day charter about 10 days in advance of our trip and had planned on going to doing his advertised trip to Yost, BVI and around St Johns. our plans to go to Virgin Gorda by Ferry one day conflicted with our...

Copeland Boat Charters came to the rescue when Captain Ben happened upon us in our pathetic sinking dinghy in Cruz Bay, St. John. We had the pleasure of meeting his friendly passengers at the customs dock and Capt. Ben came to our rescue and ferried us back to our sailboat! What a warm and kind heart he has and we... More

Captain Ben, as he put it, likes to treat his guests as he would like to be treated. A simple mantra, but an important one. I sent a standard inquiry a few weeks before our trip and was sent a quick response with all the information I would need to make the decision to contract Ben for a half day.... More

Great day on the boat with Capt Ben from St John over to Jost Van Dyke. Was very flexible on what we did and even took us to a few unknown (at least to us) snorkeling spots. Price was very fair for what was provided....highly recommend. Thanks!

Our day on the Beer Cooler was one of the best days we've had as a family in a long time. We gave Captain Ben an idea of what we wanted to get out of the trip and he used his knowledge of the area to give us an unforgettable day on the water. We really appreciated the bottled water... More

What can I say - Ben was outstanding! This was a last minute decision and if it wasn't the so called "off season" we won't have been lucky enough to get this fantastic boat charter to Jost Van Dyke! The short ride over was cool! Ben navigated the waterways with ease and gave a little history of the islands in... More

Six of us, (almost) Seniors Chartered an all-day snorkeling trip with Ben at Copeland Boat Charters. You cannot beat the price nor the fun anywhere else on the island. He picked us up at the Westin (no TAXI yea!) 9 am. Provided water and cold drinks, snorkeling gear and safety equipment. Was most informative about the islands and all the... More
