“Lion on da Sun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Captain Rick took us on a wonderful full day boat trip. He was knowledgeable, fun and flexible. We toured around St. John and then went into the BVI. We snorkeled at two spots including the Caves which was amazing! We stopped at Norman ( Treasure Island) for a lovely lunch and then went to Jost Van Dyke. It was a great day and I highly recommend Capatain Rick and Lion in da Sun.

“Islands adventures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Captain Rick took us on an amazing full day boat trip. He was very flexible with where we wanted to go, and was also a great tour guide, teaching us interesting facts about the islands. He was also kind enough to work with our last minute plans to go to Jost Van Dyke for new years night! We had an amazing time! I will definitely recommend Captain Rick to friends who visit the islands!

“Best Day Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We had such a great time in 2012 on Lion In Da Sun that we put it at the top of our 2013 to-do list. Capt. Rick is simply the best. He's entertaining, knowledgeable and, most of all, very easy going. He even laughed at my husband's corny jokes, which says a lot! We cruised over to the BVI's where we drank painkillers and shopped, and then asked to go to the Soggy Dollar Bar. He also treated us to a stop at beautiful Sandy Spit, which was picture perfect. If you want to have the best day ever when you're on St. John (or St. Thomas) call Capt. Rick!

“Perfect Day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Captain Rick is wonderful! We (2 couples, 3 kids ages 12, 11, 9) loved the day that we spent with him. He picked us up in St. John and took us along the north side of the island pointing out interesting landmarks and facts. We made two fabulous snorkel stops - Whistling Cay (amazing!) and Leinster Bay. Then we zoomed over to JVD to check-in through customs and visit Foxy's. Next it was on to Taboo for lunch - great lunch spot. We spent a nice amount of time "exploring" Sandy Cay and then finished our day at the Soggy Dollar before heading back to Cruz Bay. A large ferry boat was arriving just as we were and Capt Rick got us through a shortcut and into the customs bldg just in time so we didn't have to wait behind 60 other people. That was much appreciated! We will definitely go with Lion in da Sun again when we are on St. John. Thanks, Capt. Rick! Oh, he has great t-shirts that you can buy, too!

“Great Day Trips!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

My family and I just returned from a week on St. John. We took a couple days trip with Capt. Rick. We had a wonderful time! Capt Rick is flexible with what you would like to do, and he can also make recommendations for activities if you need it. We would definitely give him a ring if we return to the islands!
