We hit two favorite spots for snorkeling, the Indians and the caves at Norman Island. Then, stopped for lunch at a new-to-us place--"Pirates Bight" on Norman Island. Food was... More

Went out with Captain Craig on January 31, 2017. Left the pier by the Park Service Headquarters in Cruz Bay at 8:30 for a 30 minute trip to West End customs in Tortola, BVI. After a short wait to clear customs and a fee of $50/person we set off for "the Indians," a fabulous snorkel spot (but best for experienced... More

Our day on the water could not have been better! Capt Steve took great care of us and took us to some amazing places. Our day started on Tortola where we had a delicious breakfast. Then it was off to 2 snorkel stops, the Indians and the Caves which were just stunning. We made a stop at Sandy Spit, Foxy's... More

Capt. Rick took our family as well as another family out on his boat and it was one of the best chartered boat experiences we had had in many years. He knew the history of all the areas around and showed us places that we had never seen even though we had been going to the area for many years.... More
