There was very little known about the trip prior to be picked that morning, this is very uncommon for me. Typically, I would have planned and reviewed everything in-depth prior to any sort of trip such... More

This was our third time to St. John and second time taking Lion In Da Sun and all I can do is assure you, dear reader, that there will be an indefinite number of times we use Captain Rick's charter services again.

Friends, family,... More

Captain Rick was great and made the day for all of us. Rick also allowed my family to make a few decisions about what we... More

Visiting picturesque locations like Mermaids chair, and Hawks Nest. For lunch we docked at an awesome barge restaurant that was like a floating party! Then we sailed right into... More
