This was the second year in a row that we spent a day "on the water" with Lion in Da Sun. You get a different perspective of the islands when viewed from the water and you can customize your day on a private charter as opposed to going out on a group boat. Our captain, Dylan, gave us several suggested... More

We have stayed in the Virgin Island for extended vacations the last couple of years and have chartered day cruises with a number of captained boat charter companies. Hands down Lion in Da Sun is the best. Captain Rich provides great up to date and clean boats with fun filled days. He combines the knowledge of the area's history with... More

Any Captain can get you from point A to point B but it takes a certain personality to make it fun, educational and interesting. Rick has a real talent making the day go by seamlessly with his humor, fun facts, history lessons and bar hopping. He knows everyone and can make things happen. If places are busy and your trying...

Captain Rick is passionate about his job. He loves every moment of it and it shows through. I have gone out with El Capitan Ricardo 4-5 times in the last several years with many different groups of friends who all loved it. Captain Rick gives a lot of different tidbits of history and local knowledge about the islands and some... More

This was my third time on Lionindasun. It is always so much fun to be on Captain Rick's boat. Between his great knowledge of the USVI and the BVI, his friendly and welcoming demeanor, and his knowledge of the very best spots to visit, you can't go wrong !! If you want to have the best boat captain in the... More

I have chartered private charters on St Thomas and St John for many years, with our family traveling to the USVI 2-3 times per year over the last ten years. I would heartily recommend Captain Rick for his pleasant and funny personality, accommodating and interesting itinerary, acquiescence and enabling of all special requests, and knowledge of the ports and beaches...

We have taken numerous trips to St. John and the highlight of each for our family is always the boat trips with Rick. Not only is he a great tour guide but we also enjoy his stories and quick wit which makes the day even more enjoyable. With each trip we visit our favorite snorkeling spots and watering holes but...

We were met on time at the prearranged location by Captain Rick and quickly got underway in a very comfortable Scout boat. We were a party of 7 and the boat was amply spacious. Captain Rick treated us to VI historical factoids, incredible scenery and swimming, and a very relaxing full-day on the water. The regular haunts were visited, as... More

Booked on Ricks second boat which was nothing fancy but did the job. Our captain was Dillon who was filling in for the day. He was great. We discussed the best use of our time and decided to forgo the trip to Jost and just stay in the U.S. In order to save time with customs. We had 5 stops.... More
