We could not recommend Captain Tony and Local MOcean enough. Tony was born and raised on Island, so naturally he was knowledgeable and passionate about everything there was to see and do around the USVI. He made us comfortable from the moment we stepped on board Salt & Pepper. By the time we left him, we felt like we made a friend, and would recommend him and his company to anyone - adults only, families, couples looking for a perfect day on the ocean. We opted to snorkel and bar hop a bit (Lime Out is a must!)- but he will customize the day just for you, which is beyond ideal. Thank you Tony for making our first trip since COVID-19 hit a memorable one. -Liz, Lauren, and Andrew

Thank you Elizabeth for the wonderful review. It was a pleasure taking you all around and showing all of the great places we have to explore here in the USVI. You came at one of my favorite times of the year here. October is the end of hurricane season and there are no crowds, light winds and calm seas which make the best days for exploring out on the water. All the best to you guys and please come and visit us again soon! Cheers Captain Tony

I would give Tony 10 stars if I could, he was awesome and the day was a highlight of our trip. We were referred to him from a family member who had been on the boat with him a month or so ago, and so glad I listened to his advice. We are a family of 5 with all different levels of adventure. We almost did not go with Tony since he is not able to offer scuba but decided to handle scuba as a beach dive another day, which worked out perfect. Our trip included St Thomas and St John highlights. We were there while BVI was closed so there was no opportunity to go there, but to be honest we hit so many quiet and great spots not sure I would include BVI even if they were open. We hit the taco bar early (which kids and I were fine with) no crowds and great food, for sure recomend the shrimp and or tuna tacos, although really could not go wrong with any of them. We also hit about 5 snorkel spots and Tony was great catering to our needs, and making changes to the plans on the fly. HIGHLY RECOMEND HIM and HIS BOAT!

What a fabulous day out on the water with Captain John. First off - John was a complete gentleman. So nice, respectful, and really knowledgeable about all things related to what we saw and experienced. The skill he exhibited navigating and maneuvering the boat was really impressive as well. Lots of snorkeling, cave exploring, visiting the beaches around St. Thomas (we're staying in St. John - so the Captain wanted to take us to places we wouldn't see otherwise). Excellent social distanced carry out lunch at Dinghy's Bar and Grill. Yesterday was such a memorable day for all of us. On a sad note - as of today 8/19/20 the Governor has shut down the islands and charter trips for at least the next couple weeks. We were fortunate to get this trip in on the last available day - but I feel for the local businesses and the likes of captain John and others who are going to have to make ends meet while the lock down is in effect. Consider this in future and look out for the locals during this time. Godspeed and fabulous service Local Mocean! Johnston and Fisher Families

Our time with Local Mocean Charters was our favorite part of our trip! We went TWICE during our week stay in USVI. From the start they answered any questions and concerns we had with a great response time and booking was super easy! Capt Tony grew up on the island and has lived here his whole life so he is super knowledgeable and knows all the spots! Side note.. he is also an amazing boat driver! Tackling waves like it’s nothing! We had a blast seeing the island by water, exploring, snorkeling, fishing, eating at a taco boat and pizza boat, and so much more! We saw tropical fish, coral, lobsters, starfish and SEA TURTLES! If you have small children and are looking for a charter I highly recommend using Local Mocean. Tony has two young kids of his own, so he was great with our 4 year old. He took her snorkeling (helped with all her gear) and was pointing fish and coral out and telling her what they were. He was so sweet, kind and patient with her! If you’re a parent you know that, that’s not always the case when taking your kids out. Extra tip: Capt Tony Wife Emmy designed their beautiful shirts and cups! Be sure to snag one, love mine and excited to have for a keepsake!! Highly recommend.. and if you can do more than one day DO IT. We are already looking forward to our next USVI trip with Capt Tony/Local Mocean

Thanks Joy for the Awesome Review and posting some of the pictures from our adventure. I had so much fun with you guys and little Olivia was such a sweetheart. She was a champ with that snorkel gear and was a pleasure to have on board. It is always so much fun sharing all the things I love about living and growing up here. We will do it again soon and we can get your guys spearing some of those Lion Fish! All the best and please come and visit again soon. Cheers Captain Tony
