Captain Holly was fantastic- got us aboard, ordered our pizza for lunch, took us to great snorkeling spots, took AMAZING pictures which she sent to us, doing on the water live music- it was the highlight of our whole week. So so recommend this!

I am sure the 1/2 day private boat tour would have been fine but our cruise ship was not able to visit St Thomas port due to covid restrictions. Seas the Day Charter was not willing to reimburse me the $790 as it was a last minute NCL change and after 48 hour cut off time limit. Seas the Day Charters only said to use my travel insurance which I did not think was necessary at the time of booking. I recommend anyone on a cruise thinking of chartering this tour to take into consideration that you will not get reimbursed for last minute cruise itinerary changes during these uncertain Covid times.

I believe the review from Jason is fairly accurate and fair. As with any activity, whether a concert, football game, or boat charter, a guest that does not attend and does not cancel within the 48 hour cancellation period will not receive a refund. This is clearly stated in the cancellation policy agreed to by our guests including cancellation due to Covid. In Jason's case, they cancelled 1 hour prior to the charter start time. Obviously, we were unable to rebook that charter. Reservations cancelled within 48 hours of departure do receive a 100% refund. Rarely do guests not attend or not cancel within 48 hours, but we and the cruise lines do encourage all guests to have trip insurance to cover unforeseen events. Many credit cards provide trip insurance free of charge. As most people understand, tour operators are not set up to act as as both tour operator and tour insurance for cruise ship guests. The takeaway here, please purchase trip insurance when traveling by cruise ship.

After nine cruises we have booked and been on quite a few shore excursions. Some were great, some good, and some made you wish you stayed on the ship. That said, there are some excursions that we still talk about whether it was two years ago or ten because is was that special/fun. The trip our family took with Bryan (and Joe!) last week was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Not only will my wife and I (49, 51) but our adult daughters and their SO's will talk about this day for the rest of our lives. No hyperbole or embellishment, it was really that great and probably the best we have ever been on. Amazing!

We got off the ship, took a 20 min. cab to the American Harbor in Redhook Bay and met up with Bryan and Joe. We soon discovered that Bryan was from IN as are we and you cannot have that many Hoosiers together in one place and not have a great time! A short waiver process, a safety briefing, and then we set out in the Aquarius. Bryan and Joe took us out of the Redhook Bay and then took us to places that we never would have seen on some tourist trap type of tour. Bryan knew quite a bit about St. Thomas and the area and pointed out some incredible sights and hidden spots you can only reach on a 38' boat. After some exploring we tied up in a spot Lovongo Cay (incredible, like something out of a movie) and got in the water. Bryan and Joe had everything you could want; snorkel gear, noodles, fins, the full meal deal. After a while (never rushed, always at our pace) we went made our way to Maho Beach on St. John to see some turtles. Along the way we saw more amazing beaches, fauna, and beautiful homes. I can't say this enough, these are places that you just "get to" without the right size boat and a great dude like Bryan who knows how to get there.

Swimming with the HUGE turtles in Maho Beach was amazing and once again we had time to do additional snorkeling, swimming or just have a cold beer on the boat. We continued at this pace for quite some time and then Bryan had another surprise beach for us to see/swim before we returned. The spot (by "Two Cheek Beach") was like everything else beautiful, free from crowds, just perfect. As the sun began to set Bryan took a few more pictures of our group like he had done all day and then we literally sailed into the sunset on our way back to RedHook Bay.

At the end of the day, trying to describe this trip with words or pics is like trying to describe the Indy 500 to someone. You just have to experience it for yourself and when you do you will be changed for the better forever. Bottom line, I would recommend this trip with Bryan and Joe to anyone without hesitation. Like many of you on this site, I too read and consider many options and reviews before making a decision. This is by far the longest review and the most passionate I have felt about writing one ever on TA. Do you self a favor, if you are going to be anywhere near St. Thomas, book your time with Bryan today. You will not regret it, the memories will last forever! Thanks Bryan and Joe, you guys are the best!!

I can say that I am truly humbled by your amazing review. Captain Bryan works hard to ensure each guest enjoys their day on the water with him (and with Joe). Thank you for sharing your day with him and us at Seas the Day Charters. We whole-heartedly welcome you back to enjoy more time with us seeing and visiting new places. Stay safe until next time! Warm Wishes, Hope and Scott

We came to the USVI for a small, private memorial service for my mother, who passed away in 2017. She loved St. Croix more than anyplace in the world, so it felt right to come to the islands to scatter her ashes.

The memorial for my mom could have been a disaster - we were going to take a ferry from St. Thomas to St. Croix, but we misremembered the time it left and missed it by an hour. We scrambled for the next hour or two trying to find another way to get there (45 miles away over open ocean), but no luck. So we ended up chartering the Aquarius to take us out toward St. John - and it was PERFECT.

Captain Bryan was funny, knowledgable, and respectful. He didn't blink when we explained what we had in mind. He let us take pictures with Mom (well, the urn) in the Captain's chair and on the bow of the boat. He laughed at all the jokes and funny stories we told about her. And he found us the perfect quiet spot for us to scatter her ashes, complete with the official mariners' protocol for a memorial at sea. In the end, we decided Mom had made us late for the ferry because she would have loved this so much better.

And then Bryan gave us a tour of some of the prettiest beaches and bays in the islands. We got to go snorkeling and we saw sea turtles - close enough to touch! (But we didn't) - and rays and lots of beautiful fish. The tour ended with a sunset toast to Mom. We all cried a little, but it was the closure we all needed.

I can't say enough good things about this whole experience. It was exactly what we needed and I would go sailing with Captain Bryan again in a heartbeat.

(Note: TripAdvisor required me to choose who I went with. Adult family was not an option, but there were 4 of us over 40.)

We spent a wonderful morning with Bryan M. aboard the Aquarius. Bryan was an amazing tour guide -- telling us about the different border islands, best snorkel spots and recommendations for lunch when we got off. We snorkeled in Maho Bay and saw multiple huge sea turtles, a stingray, and lots of fish! Also made a stop at Honeymoon Beach on St. John. Would definitely recommend Seas the Day, especially with Captain Bryan!

Our half day trip on the MV Aquarius was a highlight of a trip to the USVI to celebrate my birthday. Captain Bryan is the BEST and made sure our time met each of our expectations. None of us had snorkeled and had a desire to learn and see sea turtles and he showed us exactly what we needed to know to feel comfortable in the water and took us right where we needed to be to see multiple turtles, stingray and a host of other fishies and sea life. He was very knowledgeable about the islands and we all wishes we had more planned for a longer trip that day.
We hope be able to visit the area again and another outing with Captain Bryan will be a must on our list of adventures.
