Highly recommend a day (or more) enjoying the Virgin Islands with Rick on Lion in da Sun. I have been out with many captains over the years and Rick works very hard at ensuring his customers are treated to an excellent experience. We enjoyed our first day so much we went out a second and were glad we did. Absolutely... More

Our day aboard the Lion in da Sun was wonderful. Captain Rick took us to some attractions that were like visiting an old dear friend, yet also never fails to show us something new and beautiful. He went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed every moment and was kind enough to capture them with each and every... More

We had the pleasure of a day with Rick in the USVI, a great day filled with tales of the Caribbean (The captain, Rick, needs only a parrot and a peg leg to complete the picture; he is a great raconteur, & very knowledgeable on the history of the Caribbean, which he dispenses in a dry laconic manner that is...

Captain Rick took care of us for the entire day. Just a pleasure to be on his boat. My wife and I have been on other charters and hands down Lion in da Sun was the best out of all. We spent the entire day with another couple from New Zealand. They were just as amazed at all the wonderful... More

We have been to the Virgin Islands four times now and this boat trip with Rick was the best and most memorable one we have taken! Captain Rick first showed us parts of St. John that we hadn't seen while staying on the island. Then he took us to the Indians to snorkel which were amazing. Then we went to... More

We booked our group, six adults and a one year old baby for a private charter with Lion in Da Sun and Captain Rick. I am so glad we did. We enjoyed his depth of knowledge, experience, easy going manner and humor! We spent the whole day with him and were so happy we listened to his recommendations. We had... More

If you want to get out on the water to explore, this is a great way to do it! Captain Rick was kind, funny, helpful, accommodating and enjoyable. He shared great sites with us (and history) and even served as a guide while we snorkeled. We had such a great time the first day, we decided to book an entire... More

We spent a whole day on Lion in Da Sun, and I have to say after making several trips to the Virgin Islands, this day was one of the best. Captain Rick was very knowledgeable about the local history. History you don't normally get if you are just taking a booze cruise. He pointed out things we had not seen... More

We spent two days aboard the Lion in Da Sun. Island hopping, snorkeling and enjoying the open waters, First day with Captain Hudson - such fun! Next day with Captain Rick visiting new sites and what a day! The best way to visit the islands on your "own" boat.

We just returned from St. John and chartered Lion in Da Sun for two full days while we were there. What an awesome way to spend a vacation. Capt. Rick was so informative on the history of the islands and no matter where we were, his outgoing personality and friendliness was shown...he knew everyone on the islands and they knew... More
