“Best skipper in the Caribbean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We have had the pleasure of having Scotty as our captain for the last three years and there is simply nobody else on the island I would trust or want to have take me on his boat. Whatever our goal may be for our day trip, Scotty always steps it up a notch by showing us a nearby sight we hadn't even known existed or taking us to a local watering hole where he knows everyone and instantly makes us feel like we do, too. His vast knowledge of the area and all things nautical, his incredible life story with anecdotes he's more than willing to share, and his easygoing and patient demeanor all make for a very enjoyable trip for people if all ages. Using any other charter besides Aqua Blue would be a big mistake. We can't wait to come back next year and do it again!

“Amazing Captain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Captain Scott is by far the best boat captain we have ever come across. We hired him to take our group of 9 snorkeling in the BVI & St Johns. He was very helpful before hand in planning our itinerary & was extremely knowledgeable about the area. Unfortunately he had difficulties with his boat just prior to our visit. He made arrangements, however, for us to use another captain. Although it wasn't necessary, he met us at the marina when we arrived & was there after our excursion. Not only did we find him to be very personable & enthusiastic, but reliable as well. We felt that he took excellent care of us & wouldn't hesitate to call him again!!

“Aqua Blue Charters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We did a tour of various Islands,that included snorkeling, beach swimming, visit to the waters of BVI and lunch at st. John's and some shopping. Experience was wonderful. The captain of the ship, Scott was an excellent guide as well as a friendly person. Absolutely client oriented and this made a huge difference. We, a group of 7 had a fantastic time. The price was very reasonable. Next time when I come here, I will certainly look for Scott to take us around.

“The best day of vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Captain Scott truly showed us one of the best days, EVER!! I brought a group of 8 for my husbands surprise 40th bday in the islands. Scott took care of everything for us. He took us island hopping to some amazing places, that we never would have found on our own. He was very knowledgable and gave us the history of each island we visited, including excellent advice on local attractions. We have traveled to many places around the world and this was the best personal tour we have had, in all of our travels. I highly recommend Scott and Aqua Blue Charters.

“Best day ever, no really!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

I don't even know where to begin. I've chartered with many captains over the years but Scotty is BY FAR the best one around. My husband, friend and his girlfriend booked with Aqua Blue for a whole day of adventures and we got SO much more. He was super enthusiastic and had so much knowledge, not just of boating and safety but of all the best places to see. We instantly felt like we had known him for years. He took us from one place to the next with impeccable timing and ease. He provided amazing music on board and also had great photography skills to capture every moment of our unforgettable trip with him. He was so affordable and we had such a great time, that we also booked him the very next day!! He was so attentive to our needs and made the day ALL about us. He is a great guy and has true passion for what he does. If you want a "once in a lifetime" type of day, book with Scotty.
