Amazing day with Captain Rick! Every time we come to St Thomas we make sure to book a day with Lion in da Sun. He takes us to the best places to snorkel, swim and see. So many islands all in one day. This is always the biggest highlight to our vacation, no one does it better than Captain Rick!!

We recently had the pleasure of a boat trip to the BVI with Capt. Rick, we had our young kids with us and to put it mildly, we couldn’t have had a better time. It was truly excellent from the minute we stepped onto Capt. Rick’s boat we knew that we had made the right choice. This was our second... More

We had a group of 9 for a day of snorkling and exploring the bays and beaches of St. John's. It was an unusually very windy day so Capt, Rick first took us around some beaches we had been to so we had a different view from the boat. He gives you some interesting history facts of St. John's with... More

My husband and I cruised with Rick and I intended to go to BVI...but I left the passports behind! No matter...Rick took us to 5 different places to snorkel and I loved every one! I realized just as we got back home who Rick reminds me of - Jerry Seinfeld! He has a great sense of humor so listen closely... More

We recently returned from 9 days in Tortola. Captain Rick had taken us on a wonderful trip around the islands two years ago, and we knew that we had to have him take us again.Since Captain Rick is so easy to work with, he of course had no problem picking us up in Tortola. We started with a snorkeling stop... More

We had an amazing time aboard Lion In Da Sun. We got the pleasure of casting away with Captain Rick on a beautiful day. Our first stop was snorkeling off of Christmas Cove, where we got up close and personal to a giant sea turtle and an even larger sting ray! Along the way we were enlightened by Captain Ricks...

We have been in St Thomas for three weeks and have booked two charters to the BVI with Capt. Rick. Both trips were a blast; informative from a historical perspective and from a practical one. He pointed out beaches to visit that are not well know so we could revisit by land along with an Interesting historical background on the... More

This was our third or fourth trip with Capt. Rick. As always we had a blast and can't wait to be back next year for our week on STJ and of course a day with Capt. Rick cruising around the BVI's. Thanks Rick , we look forward to seeing you next trip down. Tell Carrie and Little Cinnamon we said... More

Captain Rick is the best Captain in the Virgin Islands. He is an independent boat owner and cares about his clients and cares about the whole trip. He is not a hired hand, like most of the other charter power tours Captains in the Virgins and it shows!! Captain Rick will take you anywhere in the Virgins that you want... More

I forget how many times our family had been on the boat with Capt. Rick ... three or four but each time is better than before, which is difficult since the first trip was perfecto! This year we headed to Jost for painkillers at Pusser's and later lunched at Foxy's Taboo, which is always delicious. Rick has ideas about what... More
