“Perfect Day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Our favorite day of vacation! It was a perfect day for boating and Capt John was great. You feel like you've known him for years. We went to Norman Islands, Pirates, Willy T (delicious conch fritters), Soggy Dollar and Sandy Spit. Sandy Spit is a slice of heaven (tiny island). Highly recommend!

“Family of five”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Just had a great day out with John yesterday, we can see why the good reviews are here. We got in on a cancellation, which was a lucky break. Sue was very helpful, and we had heard from an Islander that this was a great guy to go with. We didn't plan out the day in advance, like most do, but no worries because Capt John led the way to a bunch of great sites and family fun based on what he gathered on our way out. For us, lots of snorkeling time and crashed a few beaches, and like others here had lunch at the Willy T and then capped off with a painkiller at Soggy Dollar. Highly recommended for other families!

“Great Trip to BVI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We have used Palm Tree Charter's in the past. We were not disappointed on this trip. Capt. John always keeps us entertained with his amusing stories. He always makes you feel welcome and is very accomodating. If you don't really know where you want to go or what you want to do with your time on the boat he is helpful and always has great suggestions. Thank youo for another memorable day on the water. We will be back.

“I would give seven stars if the choice were available”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

There is no need for a lengthy review, because all you need to know is this:

If you are going to St John, and you want to get out on the water via charter, do it with Captain John.

If you go to St John, you don't have your own boat, and you don't plan on getting out on the water via charter, rethink this decision and call Palm Tree Charters.

It really is "your boat for the day", and he is a very friendly and accomodating fellow with a true passion for the beauty of these islands. My wife and I felt totally at ease, like children playing while snorkleing, sightseeing and swimming from John's well kept boat.

John's enthusiasm for and knowledge of the islands' most beautiful spots and local lore really made our trip special, and I would recommend this trip to anyone.
