Our group of 8 went out with Captain Jug and Kara and had a fantastic time. We have done many other BVI charters but this was by far the best. The boat is immaculate and we really appreciate that we don't have to haul our own beverages and snorkel equipment. All is provided. Jug's knowledge of the area is superb. He is engaging and got into the water with our group to snorkel and point out interesting things. First mate Kara is also wonderful and so much fun. If you are looking for a charter, this is it. This will be the best day of your vacation.

Our family had an amazing day on the Coqui. The boat is fantastic and Captain Ivan was incredibly knowledgeable about out of the way snorkel spots and St John history. He managed to balance the preferences of a kid angling to gun it into the white caps with another who was a bit nervous about them incredibly well. I’d definitely recommend the Coqui to all and especially families traveling with kids.

Quite possibly the best vacation day of my adult life. The crew provided a level of service and entertainment that will rival any 5-star accommodations. Fair warning! Captain Meagan and Kara will Force a great time out of the guests. Even making a father of four sing like a 90's pop star that they are not. Lol :) The boat is as solid as they come with tons of character. I will book this charter again and again. Simply awesome

Hands down, our favorite day of our week long trip to St. Thomas was our boat day aboard JuggerKnot! Captain Jug & Captain Kara were wonderful. They came up with a great itinerary for us, brought us to some of the best snorkeling spots we've seen, & had tons of information about the islands/waters we were passing through. Captain Kara's Painkillers were noteworthy! We can't wait to come back to visit and book our JuggerKnot excursion again!

Our group of eleven had a fantastic time with Captain Jug and Kara. They were so accommodating and very professional. Initially, we thought we only wanted to go to Jost and hang out at Seddy's One Love. Upon arrival, Seddy's was crowded and the service was pretty much a mess, so we made our way over to the bar next door, CocoLocos, which was much better. Jost was pretty busy overall, so the captain suggested a quiet spot at Smuggler's Cove on Tortola. We were able to swim to the beautiful beach that had a few tent-like bars set up and a small beach shack. After Tortola, in order to make the most of our charter time, the captain took us to Mermaid's Chair, which was a small cove next to Gibney Beach and was truly beautiful. We had time to float, swim, snorkel, or just hang out on the boat.

Overall, we had a wonderful day charter. The boat was comfortable and we had plenty of room for our group. There was a large cooler filled with water, soda, and beer. Kara's rum punches were delicious, too. Captain Jug and Kara were very personable, taking time to chat with all of us. We really enjoyed our day with them.

A member of our group realized he forgot his sunglasses on the boat, and after a phone call, Captain Jug graciously dropped them off at the Westin where we were staying. We couldn't have asked for better service. I would highly recommend Captain Jug for your next day trip. We will definitely book with them again for our next charter.

We spent a half day with Captain Meagan touring the south side of St John with our party of 6 and thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the trip. Our Captain did a great job making us comfortable during all aspects of the trip. We enjoyed lunch at Lime Out and proceeded to snorkel and swim as we ventured back to Cruz bay. Would highly recommend Captain Jug and Captain Meagan for a great day on the ocean!

Had the PLEASURE of going out on the boat with Captain Jug and Captain Kara! They make you feel safe and right at home from the second they pick you up. Both are highly skilled and and extremely personable...their stories are insanely fun to listen to! They both listened to what the group was interested in doing and made the perfect call each time! Would HIGHLY recommend for any family or group looking for a fantastic time on the water. We had some children in our group that seemed to have even more fun than the adults...at least until a few of the drinks from the giant stocked cooler started to kick in! Thank you Jug and Kara!!!

We had a family of 8 booked with Captain Jug and Beka (sp?) and it was a great trip. Took us around to spots where they knew snorkeling would be good and what to look for. Very accommodating and their back stories as to how they came to St. John's just added more to our experience! The rum punch helped, too. If you haven't been to St. John's and want a trip that's family friendly, this is the one!

We had an incredible charter boat snorkeling experience for our multigenerational family. Captain Jug and first mate Becca went above and beyond, ensuring the seniors in our group felt comfortable while snorkeling. The personalized itinerary and captivating stories about St. John's history made it a perfect fit for our family. Lunch at Lime Out was delicious! This adventure was undeniably the highlight of our Christmas vacation.

I can't say enough great things about Captain Jug and his staff. First, he was great to deal with both before and after the charter. We left a few things on the boat and he arranged time out of his schedule to meet us to return them. Arranging for the boat rental on the front end was easy as well.
Second, the Captain and Mate were just incredible. They had a wealth of knowledge of the boat and the area. We told them we wanted to snorkel and see sea turtles. First stop was Maho and we saw more turtles than we could count. Great people, great Captain and Mate (both ladies who had more knowledge and professionalism than any other charter I've been on).
Third, the day on the water with them was awesome. They would go wherever you wanted to go and were great at helping you craft your itinerary. We hit Lime Out for lunch which is a great experience in an of itself.

By the way, the bottomless drinks are truly bottomless. The Pain Killers and Rum Punch were both pain killers. :). Our group thoroughly loved the trip and the day. If you are looking for a day charter I highly recommend Captain Jug!
