“A Terrific Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We took a trip with Capt. Mindy on September 18, a few days into our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a better day. She was knowledgeable, personable, and we had a great time!We took a private tour with her, just the two of us, and were so glad we did. She showed us great beaches, took us out to the Baths in Virgin Gorda, then back to Jost Van Dyke. She handled customs so we could just relax and enjoy. The Baths are so beautiful! We swam from the boat to the entrance and she picked us up on the other side. She even got a great picture of us! At Jost, we had a yummy lunch at Soggy Dollar and then headed to Foxy's. It was closed but Foxy was there telling stories and playing his guitar. It was just the 3 of us with his son and a truly memorable part of our trip. If there is anything special you need don't hesitate to ask, she is truly accomodating ;) We were sad when the trip was over but grateful to have a new friend. We will be back to the islands soon and when we do, we will be giving Gypsea Girl a call for sure! For a fantastic personal trip or group tour on the water, book with Big Blue Excursions. You won't be disappointed!!

“A Perfect day on the water!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We went out with Capt. Mindy on Sept. 10th and could not of had a better day. We started out cruising around St. John while Capt. Mindy stopping where ever we wanted. Capt. Mindy was very knowledgable, personable and professional. We stopped for a snorkel then off to the BVI's. Stopped chatted whith Foxy then to Taboo's and finally Pain Killers at Soggy Dollar. Stopped for a quick dip at Sandy Cay then to Smugglers Cove.
I would highly recommend Capt. Mindy and plan to use her on our next trip to St. John. If your looking for a laid back day on the water.....look no further. Book with Big Blue Excursions.

“a wonderful day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

beyond expectations and the captain Mindy was great. We went wherever we wanted to go and offered history and fun. Wonderfully professional as well as personable. Would definitely do this excursion again.

I especially wanted Captn Mindy as I had two young lady professionals with me - RN and medical student and having a female captain set the pace. But my husband equally enjoyed the adventure as all were game for adventures - snorkeling, jumping off the highest point of the boat, etc.

“St John to BVIs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Big Blue Excursions provided a great Virgin Island experience...snorkeling, cruising, restaurant hopping! Couldn't ask for a better captain! The boat was comfortable in open water, provided both shade and sun and great views from the tower! Highly recommended, and look forward to another charter!

“Another great day at Jost Van Dyke”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Found Big Blue and Mindy through a google search. Boat was clean, ran well, well stocked. Mindy did a fabulous job of helping us schedule the day and enjoy ourselves. I would highly recommend her service if you are in the area. We will most certainly seek her out for any future needs.
