This was an incredible experience. Captain Patrick was amazing. He did a tremendous job explaining history, geography, and stories of the Virgin Islands. It was like going on a tour with the cool professor from college. Patrick knows great snorkeling spots and will customize your trip to your wants. Highly recommend.

Kyle and Lisa were true professionals and very cordial host and hostess for our delightful day trip to the BVIs. Kyle is an experienced master captain, safely handling the boat in fairly rough seas. He and Lisa are a great team committed to ensuring that each passenger enjoys a safe and memorable day on the water.

We did a lot of research prior to booking with Captain Nate. And yes, Nate's is a bit higher-priced than some others but well worth it. the other boats we looked at did not have as strong reviews, Nate's boat was bigger, more comfortable and higher end, had shade and sun and tons of space. Nate makes great drinks and best of all, Nate customized our trip to pick out what fit us best. we went to 4 different areas to snorkle, saw a shipwreck, lots of sea turtles and stingrays and tons of beautiful fish, unforgetable experience. was with my wife, and daughters and their friends ages 18-24 but great for all ages. this is the highlight of our vacation in St. Thomas. last, if you ask, Nick will sing for you, he is an amazing singer. LOVE

We had 12 and there was plenty of room on the boat. Captain Brandon was so fun, attentive, and the teenage girls (and my 70 year old mother) drooled over him all day. Haha! Nate was incredible to work with. I’ve chartered at least 20 boats and this was BY FAR the best!

Full day of sun and fun on the water with Captain Brandon. By far and away the best day of the week while at St Thomas. Upon arrival Captain Brandon planned the day around activities that we wanted, snorkeling with Sea Turtles, seeing Island historical and landmark areas, relaxing and of course sipping on Pain Killers. The day far exceeded expectations and tacos on the water made for a perfect lunch. Boat was in fantastic shape and clean beyond clean and found it comforting Brandon spent an important amount of time discussing safety measures! Went as a family of four, but would have been perfectly comfortable with up to 8-10 people. If you are looking for a day off the island and away from people while still experiencing the USVI's from a completely different perspective, I highly recommend Nate's Custom Charters. Went into the day thinking this was a bucket list type activity and was not disappointed, and find it is again on my bucket list again as an activity that must be done again! Thank you to Nate's Charters and our amazing Captain Brandon!

Spent our favorite day on the water with Captain Brandon. The boat was perfect for our group of 10, we had plenty of room, and it was our favorite day of the week. He was by far the beat boat captain any of our group has ever had, and we found ourselves wishing we’d booked him several times that week! He knew all the best spots to show us, the stories behind all the spots and made us laugh all day! Not to mention his painkillers were the best on the island. Tacos at Lime Out for lunch were excellent and such a fun experience. He took us to several great snorkeling spots and provided gear which was so convenient not having to drag our own. Thank you to Nate’s Custom Charters and to Captain Brandon!! We’d recommend to anyone and everyone and can’t wait to go back.

Capt Nate and Deckhand Josh gave us a great day snorkeling and visiting the BVI. The boat is a great set up for snorkeling and for the trip to the BVI. The wide catamaran is really stable and comfortable even in rough seas. It offers plenty of covered seating and an open area in the back of the boat if you want to get some sun. We had 9 people in our group, but the boat will easily accommodate 12, which I believe is the maximum number. Snorkel gear, water, sodas and beer are provided. The boat has a stand up head available. The day we went was windy with stronger currents, but Capt Nate still found us some great snorkel sites. We had a great day and I would charter with Capt Nate again.

A MUST BOOK!!! Four of us have said this experience was a "top 10 day" that we will forever remember! The boat was great, the islands were incredible of course, but I have to tell you that Captain Brandon was the cherry on top... absolutely amazing. He felt more like family by the end of the day and I couldn't have dreamed of having a cooler Captain for the day. He knows all the great snorkeling spots, we hit an awesome lunch spot, the music was incredible and he will even sing along and dance for you! haha. Every need or want was proactively thought of and man, those painkillers were delicious... best on the island. Brandon shared all kinds of facts about the island and everything we drove by. If you are looking to book a boat day there is not another company I would ever use!

Brandon our Captain was GREAT! Some of the family was anxious and Brandon with his great personality, fun loving approach gained their trust in no time at all. We saw and swam with turtles and enjoyed the snorkeling! We came back to the dock wet, tired and kissed by the sun. We had a fabulous time. When we come back we will definitely book with Nate’s Charted Boats again!
