We chartered Capt. Rick for a half day and were very pleased. We had my wife and our 3 kids(10,10,5yrs). We went snorkling in two great spots and saw many fish, coral, and a plane wreck. We saw the largest brain coral we have ever seen. It was about three and half feet wide and was beautiful. We also hung... More

Capt Rick & his assistant made for an awesome experience out on the water! The weather was a bit overcast, but he sure did not disappoint, despite the occasional rain showers. My wife, Veronica & I thoroughly enjoyed the experience & will definitely be back again!

Rick is great. He is well informed and an all around nice guy. This was our 2nd trip with him and will always call him in the future. He will take you wherever you want to go for the day. Nice size boat and always clean too. Thanks again.

My wife and I did a whole day charter with Captain Rick. Rick was a great source of information on just about everything. He took us to off the usual path spots for snorkeling and out to sandy spit and sandy cay for a little sandy hiking. He was also a great source of history about the surrounding areas of... More

My wife and three children (two young adults) went on a half-day in the USVI with Capt. Ric. It was last minute trip and he was able to get us on the water within 2 hours of our phone call. Ric really bent over backwards to make our trip unique. We had done one day with another charter so his... More

Every vacation to St.John would not be complete without spending 2 glorious days upon the beautiful Carribean Seas with Captain Rick. This was our 4th visit to St John and our days with Captain Rick are filled with adventure and fun. Rick is a most skilled captain. He knows every cove and reef for us to enjoy snorkeling and exploring.... More

Capt Rick took our family - 2 daughters 13 & 11 from St. John to tour outlying islands and to snorkel hard to reach reefs. The boat was great for our family and could have handled 4 more folks comfortably. Nice shade. We visited Jost Van Dyke, Sand Spit, Sandy Island, and toured by Tortolla and Caravelle Rock. We had...

Our group took a water taxi with Captain Rick from St. Thomas to Tortola. Our flight arrived a bit late and we were worried about being able to get to Tortola on time. Captain Rick was fantastic getting us to our destination. He was very pleasant to be with and extremely trustworthy. I would highly recommend him.
