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.

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

Just cannot say enough about this company!!! The new owners, Ben and Jennifer were More than accommodating! They were so relaxed and flexible to our "schedule!" They were very easy to communicate with prior to the trip and very easy to make arrangements to meet! I would recommend them 100% to anyone looking for a charter!! We can't thank them... 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

Thoroughly enjoyed our half day snorkel charter around St. John with Capt. Benny on the Beer Cooler! Benny provided a fun atmosphere and knowledgable interest stories along the way. Got to visit 5 sites that we could not drive to including two stops near a private island. We saw amazing sea life including turtles, nurse sharks, and hundreds of tropical... More

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...
