      Wonderful boat ride to Anguilla
      This was a great trip to Anguilla. We’ve always wanted to see that island and Captain Chris did not disappoint. We arrived at the dock early and Chris was more than accommodating. He had water and sodas for us. We set sail and he pointed out fascinating areas and the stories behind them. The open water was choppy but Chris was able to make the ride as smooth as possible. The island beaches are absolutely beautiful and the best part is they weren’t crowded. Snorkeling was great and once back on the boat Chris pointed out a turtle. We enjoyed spending the day on the boat and seeing a place we’ve only read about. I can see why Anguilla is in the top 10 beaches in the world. Super amazing. Thanks Chris for taking us there!!

      Unreliable and unapologetic - DO NOT BOOK WITH THEM!
      We booked through Viator on the Monday before the scheduled Wednesday excursion and received confirmation of our trip. We arrived at the marina at 8:30 (trip was to start at 9:00). By 9:30 no one had shown up. A friendly passerby chatted with us and agreed to call the tour operator - "Chris" - he spoke to him and Chris told him he would be there shortly. At 10:30 still no one. I found a security guard and asked to use his phone. I called and spoke with Chris who indicated he had cancelled our reservation the day before - we were not notified of this by anyone! He was completely unapologetic saying it was not financially feasible given there were "only" three of us and hung up. We spent $50 US on taxis to get there and back (after flailing around trying to hail a cab back). As it was so late in the day - and week; we were leaving in 2 days - we were not able to book another excursion. Try explaining that to your 12 year-old who had been so excited to go on a boat and go snorkelling. Thank you for nothing Wavy Navy. I strongly encourage everyone to NOT even consider booking with this company.

      We enjoyed our time with Frankie learning more about St Maarten and her people. We really appreciate their customer service and how they took care of us. Definitely recommend this company.

      Avoid Navy Wavy!
      I reserved a boat on line thru Navy Wavy’s website and paid in full for a 1/2 day boat rental on St Martin over the Christmas holiday week. I paid thru PayPal for this rental in early December 2023. The day before my charter on December 27 I received a confirmation email stating reminding me of my rental from Navy Wavy. In the afternoon of December 27, I received an email from PayPal informing me that my reservation with Navy Wavy was canceled and they were refunding me my money. I reached out to Navy wavy via email the only way to reach the company but no response. They also failed to notify me of the cancellation or the reason why. Had I not received the notification from PayPal I would Have assumed my reservation was still intact. I was able to contact the captain who charters the Navy Wavy boat rental thru Facebook and he told me my reservation was canceled because the company was able to book another customer for a full day rental, so my 1/2 day rental was bumped. Terrible business practice and disastrous customer service. I would avoid this company at all costs - they do not fulfill their reservations and cancel without any apologies or notification.

      Snorkeling/Beach excursion
      Chris was awesome. He allowed us to adjust the time spent at each spot snorkeling or swimming based on where we liked best. He was very knowledgeable about the island and all the attractions. Lunch was fantastic and price was very reasonable. Sorry only 5 stars to give.

      Best captain ever!
      Captain Chris is our favorite on the island! We only do boat trips with him because of how much fun we have and how close we have become, he is like family to us and he hosts amazing tours 😊. You can pick the places you go to or have him suggest an itinerary. Either or, you won’t be disappointed.

      Vendor took money and did not provide tour OR the promised refund
      I booked a half day snorkel tour on TripAdvisor on 8/30/2023 and this vendor confirmed it and accepted payment. I called the morning of the tour because the meeting place was different than the instructions I had read on the website and we were going to be late as a result. The owner of wavy navy answered and informed us he was actually closed for the season and his boat was out of the water. He said we would be issued a refund from TripAdvisor. I've contacted TripAdvisor to no avail, and contacted wavy navy directly via the contact us page on their website. I am owed $178 for a tour that did not take place. The vendor also mentioned this had happened before with TripAdvisor allowing bookings when he is closed. Someone contact me to issue the refund, it has been weeks.

      The Wavy Navy experience
      The snorkeling experience was 10/10, the gear was really clean and the crew were kind and patient with helping with putting the gear on properly, the tour was really nice and informative on our destinations and the places we saw on the way to our destinations. The entire service was excellent and the experience was amazing.

      Worthy Experience!
      Chris was an absolute delight! I was reluctant to book the trip because I didn't know what my experience would entail along with the myriad of other options, however, I'm glad I did! It was my partners boyfriend, so to be able to cruise the beautiful ocean intimately was an invaluable experience. Chris was very knowledgeable of the island and allowed us to literally go with the flow along with making quality suggestions. Definitely worth the cost! Thanks, Chris.

      Book it! You won't regret it.
      Amazing crew, attentive and friendly. Snorkeling at Creole Rock was really fun, although I was a bit scared of the fishes (first time). The boat itself is decent. The cushion on the front seat needed fixing at the time, but no biggie. Was having too much fun to care, but having it fixed would have been nice for the optics. And guys, the rum punch is amazingly delicious! The beautiful beaches made this day even better. We also got some background information on certain landmarks, which made the trip interesting. Highly recommend.

      Great customer service
      We booked last minute and trip advisor over booked the tour and we didn’t get the rejection email till early in the morning. Walked over and checked in and he quickly told us what happened and call another boat service for availability. Then Chris went above and beyond and personally drove us to a different boat company allowing us to still enjoy a great day out on the water. Great customer service!

    This was an enjoyable day. Chris was a good host, although I don’t recommend this trip for young children. Best for young adults.

    Made 3 snorkeling stops in some nice places. Had lunch at LOLOS in Grand Case, which was the absolute highlight! Fresh fish well prepared and included in the price of the trip

    We has a great time on this excursion. The team (Chris, Mike and Junior) are full of energy and attentive to guests. Rhum punch 🍹 excellent and lunch at the lolo’s was delicious. It rained part of the day and they offered us another tour on another day if we wanted to make up for the rainy day!

    Support a black owned business and go with Wavy Navy!!

    We booked our day trip with Chris and he said the weather was “iffy” later in the week & he said he wouldn’t chance it, so I felt like I was in good hands from the get go! He called the night before to confirm, which I also appreciated!
    We met at 9am Chris and Sammy were waiting & ready for us! They took our lunch orders and we were off!
    It was myself, my husband, my 18 yo daughter, my girlfriend & her 18 yo son. There was also another couple on the boat.
    We went to Creole Rock and snorkeled a bit, stopped by Anse Marcel, and had a great lunch at Villa Royale in Grand Case! We winged locations due to weather, which was completely fine with us.
    Chris, Sammy & “Honey”😆 were the best of the best!!! We laughed so much, they played the best music, and had a fully stocked cooler for us. I must admit, we couldn’t help but to overindulge with the amazing rum punch, but when we ran out...Chris swam off the boat, into town to get us more! Now that’s a true host!
    I highly recommend them for a very fun & memorable day loaded with fun in the sun!! Thank you Chris, Sammy & “Honey” for the best day in SXM! ♥️

    Fantastic time on this tour! Chris, Junior, and Mike are energetic and friendly with a great sense of humor. We ate at Lolo's for lunch, the fish/red snapper was delicious, and the staff has great customer service.

    Junior guided me while snorkeling, he has a calm presence that is perfect for first time snorkelers, pointed out the fishes, and we even saw a school of Dora's following us back to the boat, it was cool!! Really great time, they even took pictures of us to remember these memories.

    We arrived on 6/9/22 to go for a full day excursion. I paid $480 a week before the excursion. When we arrived they said they had no record of our booking. They then found our booking and said it was overlooked. We paid $40 to get to the Sampson Bay Area and then another $50 to get back to cruise ship. We were unable to book any other excursions because it was too late in the day by the time we were told it was overbooked. Wasted $110. Waiting on a refund for $480. Understand things happen but this was a big deal to us and Chris didn’t seem that concerned- laughed a few times and said “sorry”.

    As soon as I noticed my bare wedding finger, I knew it was hopeless. We were in 25-foot water, with nothing below us but milky sand, sea grass, and a strong current. But Captain Miguel and Tour Director Chris didn't hesitate: they donned snorkels and scoured the bottom in search of the impossible. After fifteen minutes, just as I was prepared to accept the inevitable, Miguel popped out of the water. With. The. Ring!

    The test of true professionals is how they respond when something bad happens, and these two get an A+. Perfectly calm, quick, and efficient, they found my ring as though they solve problems like this every day.

    I can't imagine going on the water with anybody else. These guys are absolutely top notch.

    Usually they need 5 or more people on each tour but there was just us and another couple and they were nice and decided not to cancel! Chris was our captain and he made it really fun. He provided drinks. The boat ride was fast (bumpy) but really fun. We snorkeled in 2 different areas one with fish and one with sea turtles. Then we stopped at iguana beach to feed the iguanas which was awesome and we ended on a beach with a local restaurant that had amazing food you could pick from fish or rib dishes we had the ribs which were delicious. The last stop was a beach to swim. Be prepared to get wet as the boat doesn’t dock on dry land for the beach portions you jump into waist high water and walk onto the beach or just swim. Very fun adventure with a good variety. Highly recommend

    Just got back from enjoying a full day of fun and sun (well maybe some rain too) on the Wavy Navy with Kris and Chris as the crew members. Chris was super high energy and made sure even our teenager daughter got in to the fun. Made several different stops for swimming and snorkeling. Also stopped in Grand Case for a scrumptious lunch. Had drinks on board as well. All included with the cost of trip. Even the wife, who got a little seasick, got off the boat saying what a wonderful trip it was. Definitely would recommend highly to everyone who comes to the island

    Chris met us at the dock and he was super personable and fun. He made sure we got to our boat and introduced us to our captains Mikey and Ricky. I love that it wasn't too many people on the boat. There were just 5 of us which made for a really chill experience. Mikey and Ricky were excellent tour guides and all-around very nice guys. They really wanted to make sure we got the most out of our experience. We stopped at various snorkeling spots and they made sure we had everything we needed (snorkels, fins, life vests, etc). They were also really great about helping us on and off the boat. Mikey even jumped in a couple of times and pointed certain things out (we saw a barracuda!). They kept the rum punch flowing and even helped out my wife when she got a little seasick. We saw so much of the island and Mikey and Ricky knew a lot of history about the island and made sure to point things out as we went by. Lunch was incredible as well. The food was authentic and Mikey made sure we were well taken care of at the restaurant. The best part was when we made it back to the dock Chris was there to greet us. He saw that we didn't have a taxi waiting for us and he offered to drop us off at our hotel which was way on the other side of the island. He even took us to a nice spot to watch the sunset and have a drink while we waited for the traffic to die down. I can't recommend Chris, Mikey, and Ricky enough! Their customer service and hospitality were above and beyond and it was definitely the highlight of our vacation. Highly recommend!

    There was a mixup as far as the pick-up spot. We got no reply when trying to contact the operator. That caused an hour delay in our tour. Captain Chris was unaware that we were on a cruise ship yet all that info had been supplied through Trip Advisor. There was a boat capacity sign of 10 people, although the 2 crew members gave us a total of 12. The boat was not in great condition, the cushions were torn and there was not a lot of room to sit or move around. Captain Chris and Mike were very helpful with the gear, climbing in and out of the boat, refreshments, and with information about the area. We were supposed to eat at a local restaurant, but the water was too rough to exit the boat. Chris decided that he and Mike would swim to shore and made 3 trips to get the food in takeout containers. This took a long time. We would rather have skipped the food since it was taking so long. We also made a stop for gas which could have been done earlier.
