Awesome trip

Had a great time with Rick, He is very educated about the Virgin Islands and knows the best snorkeling spots. We are repeat customers and always have a great day on the boat!

Rick was amazing. He's incredibly knowledgeable and personable. We left from Cruz Bay and went to various snorkeling sites and then on to BVI on Lion in Da Sun. The day couldn't have been any better thanks to Rick!

We enjoyed a day on the water with Capt. Rick in June. He was very flexible with our options for where to go, when to leave, etc. Had a fun time touring the North Shore of St. John, enjoyed some beautiful snorkeling at the Indians, had a great lunch at Foxy's Taboo, and finished up the day with B-Line Beach...

Rick was the best boat captain! He showed the best spots in the BVI and took tons of pictures of my me and my husband without me asking! He knows these trips are special occasions for couples and groups and makes it just that! He was accommodating and knew a lot of the history with the trip! My husband and... More

Captain Rick absolutely made our vacation! Everything you read in the reviews is true. He is very knowledgeable about the islands. He doesn't just take you to one spot then the next. He actually takes the time to stop and explain why this place is interesting, and what it has to offer. One thing that my wife and I extremely... More

We charted a day trip from Cruz Bay with our family. We were able to snorkel at some awesome spots! Our captain suggested a great place for lunch on Norman Island . The food was tasty and the drinks hit the spot. It was a perfect setting. We stopped by Willie T's to jump off the pirate ship before heading... More

I have been traveling to STJ for over a decade now and have booked with capt. Rick multiple times. He never disappoints and is a blast - love his charm and wit and local knowledge. There are many Captains out there they do a great job but if you are looking for someone who is flexible and willing to cater... More

This was my second time chartering Capt Rick and the trip was better than expected. We had three couples in our group and we rented a house on Virgin Gorda. Instead of paying for the ferry service we decided to make a day charter of it since most of our group hadn't been to the islands and we wanted to... More

Several days ago, my wife and her parents accompanied me on a pre-planned day of boating on and off the USVI of St. John. 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
