About
Think of your IslandBuddy simply as your Buddy that lives on island. We are available for hire with top of the line equipment to show you our beautiful back yard as if we would show our Aunts, Uncles, or long lost buddies from school when they come to visit us on a private and custom island tour. We believe the Virgin Islands is slam packed with adventure and beautiful sights to see on land, on the water, and in the sea below the surface and that every day should be spent exploring further. Whether you are staying at a hotel, villa, or cruise ship we can line up a day of adventure for you in our private open air Broncos, UTV side by sides or power boats for the most adventurous tour experience! Be sure to book in advance as cruise ship days are the first to fill up.

We booked last minute with IslandBuddy Tours for our one day trip to St.John and I am so glad we did. Cyle, our guide for the day met us at the Ferry Terminal and immediately made us feel comfortable and relaxed. He suggested an itinerary that met our needs and we were off. We saw some amazing views, beautiful beaches, and had great conversation with Cyle along the way. Well worth the money to have someone that knows the Island take you to the best spots and recommend the best way to spend the limited time you might have. Would book with Cyle and IslandBuddy Tours again in a heart beat!

Hi Kim, thank you for your amazing review! Cyle is definitely a wealth of information as well as an outstanding tour guide. We are so appreciative you decided to book with us last minute. You'll have to let us show you around St. Thomas next time you're on island 🌴

Loved everything about our Half Day Boat Charter with Captain Cory. From the start, he was very responsive & reached out personally the day before our charter to see if we had questions or an itinerary in mind. He made great suggestions for snorkeling sites, gave some interesting facts about the islands and gave a very personalized tour. He also gave great advise for future activities & dining options for the rest of our stay. He even joined in on the snorkeling to point out different fish, corals & wrecks. He even set up our next adventure with a local jet ski company.

Half day boat trips with Cory on the Mainship is one of the most enjoyable activities out there. Affordable and relaxing. A great way to get on the water and away from the crowds and packed with adventure of your choosing!

Did a half day Island Jeep excursion with Spencer and had a blast. Learned so much about the local culture and way of life. We had a fun traffic jam with some sheep and goats, and my husband finally got to see some turtles while snorkeling. Spencer went snorkeling with him to show him the spots where they are normally seen. Spencer was also such a safe driver and took us from Cruz Bay all the way up to the East End on those hilly and narrow roads without any problems. If it weren’t for booking this excursion, we would not have been able to see so much of the island as we did not rent a vehicle.

Thanks for hanging out with us. We try to value your time with us and bring you an experience you would not have had had you not hung out with us. I’m happy to hear we were able to take you somewhere you wouldn’t have gone without us and that you got to see turtles 🐢! Thankfully the goats didn’t keep us from returning home this time 🤣

My friend and I did the full day jeep tour. Our guide, Spencer, was knowledgeable and fun. The morning was great. However, there didn't really seem to be a plan for the afternoon. I know the trip is built around what we were interested in, but we were really only given two options - a second snorkel spot, which I wasn't excited about because of the rain and the temperature, or "some people just want me to drop them at Maho because they want an afternoon at the beach". The afternoon of our tour ended up getting rained out (it was POURING), and they did a partial refund, which was good.

Hi, thank you for the feedback! Unfortunately, we have no control over the weather so we do the best we can to come up with an itinerary on the fly to make up for the stormy weather. We are really glad you braved it out with us for the day! We were happy to issue a partial refund to both you and your partner as requested. We'd love to show you around again on a more sunny day! Cheers! ☀️

This was by far the best part of our trip to St Thomas/St John. We did the Jeep tour of St John on July 14th and our tour specialist was truly amazing and gave my wife and I an outstanding experience. Spencer was very knowledgeable, funny,and provided insights of the beaches, marine life, plants and the islands and he had a great playlist. If you are looking for a great time seeing the many sights, snorkeling or just going to the beaches to soak up the sun then IslandBuddy is the perfect tour company for you. My wife and I definitely recommend this tour company…they go above and beyond to make your day and tour special.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our full-day tour of St. Thomas with IslandBuddy and Nikolai, our “island buddy” and tour guide for the day. Nikolai was prompt, kind, professional, informative, and an overall top-notch tour guide. He has an excellent knowledge of the history, geography, and culture of not only St. Thomas but also St. John and the surrounding islands. We saw more of the island than we were expecting and covered a whole lot of ground in one of the company’s Jeeps. Our tour guide even provided drinks and gear for snorkeling... bonus! We could not have asked for a better tour of the island. I would highly recommend IslandBuddy if you’re looking for an informative and breathtaking tour of the island.

I have been to St. Thomas multiple times but my fiancé had not so I wanted to make sure he got the lay of the island and saw all the great spots.

Nicholai was our Tour Guide and he made the day incredible. He picked us up in his jeep at our VRBO at 9am and from there I gave him the spots that I wanted to see and within 5 mins he had an itinerary lined up for us.

We went snorkeling, hiking, shopping, site seeing and much more all within one full day. My fiancé wanted authentic food from a local spot and he took us to a great secret spot which I don't think a commercial tour would do for us.

On the way back he even let us go to the grocery store to get some things for our VRBO.

Great company and a MUST worth every penny!

We did a full-day tour of St. John and our guide, Sir Spencer Witherington, left no rock unturned. From the scenic views, serene bays, a fun day in the sun.

Spencer embodies the vibe of the island, and requires no additional pestering for him to share his best with you.

This company I would recommend for any fun, lively, informative, and technical groups— as they know how to show you (and your party) a great time!

This was out first trip ever to the Virgin Islands. With a 7year old, 11 year old, and 14 year old in out family, Spencer was able to take us on a tour around the island that was interesting for all of us without being too strenuous for the younger kids. There were definitely areas on the island we would never have gone to, known about, or would have been able to go to if he hadn’t taken us. By the end of the trip, it was like we had made a new friend. I very much do recommend this trip if your looking for an adventure or just need someone to show you around!

Thank you for your glowing review! We truly enjoy taking our guests to the more remote, local part of the islands and show them life here as a local. I will be sure to let Spencer know you had a great time with him! Thank you again for your kind words! 😊
