Captain Mike and crew member Roshan (sp?) were absolutely fantastic. We started out with a rain squall on the way out but that did not dampen our trip at all. We were very well taken care of and it was a relaxing enjoyable trip. I highly recommend this group

I just visited a friend who has lived in St. Croix for 25 years and she recommended Jolly Roger Charters and personally knew Captain Mike. We went on the full-day Buck Island catamaran trip. The crew was so friendly and the boat never felt crowded like some catamaran tours can. The trip out to Buck Island took about an hour.... More

We are visiting St Croix for a week and wanted to go to Buck Island since we missed it on our last trip here. We went on the half day trip and had a great time! The boat ride was great, the crew was awesome and the reef was amazing! The rum punch was refreshing on the trip back to... More

This was a great trip. Relaxing sail with a friendly crew. It was just the right size customer base so that we didn't feel herded. The snorkeling stop was not rushed and they did a nice job guiding us. The stop on the beach was nice at Buck Island with the rum punch and setting sun for the sail back... More

We had a great time on our charter with Capt Mike and his crew. Highly recommend. Very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. First time snorkeling, no problem! They will teach you what you need to know to enjoy your experience.

We were thrilled with our cruise and snorkeling around Buck Island with Captain Mike and his sidekick, Alan. It was a beautiful day for a cruise; plus the snorkeling was fantastic. Alan guided my wife personally and pointed out a couple barracuda along with other colorful fish. It was a terrific day and the rum punch wasn't too bad, either.... More

Great ride on a great sailboat. Captain Mike and his friend Alan did a great job. The snorkeling at Buck Island is amazing and Mike took the time to give us a lesson and make sure everyone was comfortable. Best snorkeling experience of my life! Mike and Alan are very personable and have some great stories!

Our trip to Buck Island with Mike and Kevin was wonderful. They were both informative and patient helping us to get acquainted with the snorkel gear before we headed to the reef. I really felt like I was immersed in my own private aquarium as I swam and just floated, looking at the wonders below the surface.

What a beautiful sailing day to Buck Island. We were first timers on this snorkeling trip. Captain Mike, Tiffany and Rashawn were absolutely awesome, from providing and fitting gear, to help off the boat, to acclimating us to the water and using our gear, to leading us down the trail - all done professionally and with no judgment for the...

Great fun all-day sail (large catamaran) and snorkel trip to Buck Island. Capn Mike and his crew were great hosts and guides for our all-ages group of 14. They were able to sail right up to the dock at our resort (The Buccanneer) to pick us up. Then we sailed for about 45 minutes to some super reef snorkeling (underwater... More
