Join us for all of your Watersports needs! We offer daily Buck Island Snorkeling & SCUBA Diving, Private Charters, Sunset Sails, Buck Island Reef National Monument is a must for every visitor whether you snorkel the underwater trail or just enjoy the beach! Proclaimed as a National Monument in 1961 by John F. Kennedy, Buck Island is considered to be "one of the finest marine gardens in the Caribbean Sea." Buck Island's main beauty lies in the surrounding coral reef ecosystem and its unique underwater trail. Here you will snorkel amongst endangered elkhorn and staghorn coral formations teeming with colorful reef fish. After snorkeling, we head to Turtle beach on the west side of Buck Island for some rest and relaxation. Turtle beach was rated one of the world's most beautiful beaches by National Geographic!

We went on the Buck Island trip, Cruise special, even though we were not on a cruise. It was really great. Snorkelling the reef was beautifull... lots of fish and corals to see. Everybody have to wear A swim-vest to protect the coral reef, but you quickly got used to it. Only downside was that after our guided tour of... More

An afternoon sail to Buck Island with Grant & Bethany was a perfect end to our week in St. Croix. They listened to what we wanted to accomplish on our private sail in 4 hours and we got it all in without feeling rushed. Our only regret is that it wasn't a full day. Highly recommend spending a little extra... More

Beautiful half day of snorkeling at the reef around buck island, followed by some down time on turtle beach. 3 stars because a couple of the snorkelers were too afraid to go far out, and twice I had to bring them back to the boat myself (the guide didn't notice)...and when I went back out I couldn't find the group...

Hi Nick M, Great to hear that you had a beautiful half day snorkel. You offer key advice, we always ask that those who need extra assistance/a lesson/or who just aren't confident to be vocal about needing the help so that we can spend the extra time with them! Either the crew or captain has an eye on what's happening... More

We recently did the Buck Island snorkel tour with Captain Grant and Bethany. It was an amazing day and we had a fantastic time. I encourage anyone who is interested in doing some snorkelling to take this tour. They gave us a better deal when we booked directly through them versus the cruise line and they did not disappoint. Highly... More

We enjoyed our full-day catamaran excursion to Buck Island so much! Grant and Kendall did a wonderful job getting us to the island, explaining the snorkeling process and returning us to St. Croix. I was nervous when I found out that we would snorkel from the boat and not the beach, but Kendall was totally chill and didn't rush me... More

We did the full day tour to Buck Island. The crew are wonderful and knowledgeable! Michelle and Moose made us feel welcome and had fun! Michelle has a degree in marine biology and told us all sorts of info and showed us things while snorkeling. Snorkeling equipment is excellent! Bring your own lunch and snacks; they have coolers.
