Sadie Sea was a big hit with the 29 members of our family on board. We had 4 generations taking advantage of a full day trip. Even the great grandchildren, ages 3 1/2 and 5/12 got in the water. Captain Tom took the family to 3 wonderful snorkeling spots and let the family play as long as they wanted. We... More

This was our second snorkel trip with Sadie Sea. We had a total of 13 people including 5 children. We had a great time and being a private snorkel trip made it so special! Couldn't have asked for a better time. We were able to visit several snorkel spots and the kids loved jumping off the top of the boat... More

Captain Tom and mate Kim were fantastic. Had 15 people with 4 kids aged 6, 4, 3, and 2. Took us to calm areas and Kim was terrific with the kids...Having been a nanny, the kids warmed up to her right away. They allowed us to stream our kind of music straight to the stereo system...wonderful half day trip. Wouldn't... More

Beautiful island and the crew was super friendly. Was nice to have the schedule flex based on what we wanted to do. Would definitely do this again if we return to St John another time in the future...

Our troop used the Sadie Sea twice while camping on SJ. Cpt Tom and Mate Kim, picked us up after a hike and brought us back to town. Second trip was being picked up in Cinnamon Bay and spirited to Watermelon Beach for snorkeling. The boys loved being ferried to Sadie by Zodiac. Clean boat, laid back crew, snorkeling equipment...

I have been using Sadie Sea for the last 5 years and it is always one of the highlights of a group trip I lead in St John. Tom is a fabulous captain, so knowledgeable about the area and intent on giving his customers a great (and safe) experience. We have been taken to many fabulous snorkeling spots where Tom... More

What a way to say goodbye to 2015 and welcome in the new year! My family of 13 people enjoyed our sunset sail with Capt Tom. I picked Sadie Sea Charters because Capt Tom is retired Coastie. Even though the weather did not cooperate with us during our entire trip, we made the most of it. My family toasted in... More

I charted the Sadie Sea for a sunset sail on my 40th birthday. Tom was a great captain. He picked us up on time, took us where ever we wanted to go, and rocked out with the music. It will be a memory that will last a lifetime! Thanks. Everything was perfect.

I was not expecting to go on a charter boat while on my visit to St John. My whole intention was for a life battery recharge. Someone mentioned Sadie Sea and how relaxing a sunset cruise would be. I thought it would be strange for a 60 year old man flying solo to do a trip like this, but I... More
