About Island Roots Charters
With capacity and seating for up to 12 passengers, “Island Roots” offers the MOST AFFORDABLE PRIVATE day charter in its’ class. - All of our trips are unique and customized to the interests of the guests... from bird watchers, to sunbathers, snorkelers, photographers, divers, cocktail connoisseurs, food enthusiasts, folks seeking the “best of” the islands to casual fun boaters just looking to just enjoy the breeze and some time on the water. - A “typical day” might include swimming, snorkeling, sightseeing, beaching, cliff jumping, lunch, hiking, history, story telling, music, dancing and more. Guests are welcome to visit the popular spots people often talk about, mentioned in guidebooks, on social media, etc... but also encouraged to explore tons of lesser visited places that have yet to go “mainstream.”

This was probably our 5th trip out with Island Roots and they are always top notch! We started at Waterlemon Cay for a snorkel and then off to the north side of Lovango. After that we went over to Dingy's on Water island for lunch and then a stop at Buck Island to snorkel the wreck of The Cartanza. There was a swell that day but Max our boat captain knew exactly how to steer through the waves providing as smooth as a ride as possible. Their 32 foot World Cat had plenty of space for everyone. Looking forward to our next trip out with Island Roots.

We rented a 6 hr charter with Island Roots and our family of 6 had a wonderful time. Captain Max was great and our whole experience was what we'd hoped for. Limeout was excellent for lunch and the four spots we snorkeled were perfect. We saw many rays and green sea turtles, gorgeous coral and so many beautiful fish! I totally recommend Island Roots Charters.

This was our favorite day on St John. Great snorkeling, visited several different sites. Ryan was our captain and he was great, friendly and shared lots of information about the island. Went to the pizza boat for lunch, very good. Highly recommend Island Roots.

My family and I had the best day. Captain Ryan was awesome. I've been on many boating excursions, but this day of boating was the best. Communications were great. Cap. Ryan provided us with many options to explore the beautiful island. Will definitely use Island Roots again.

Had a great day on the water with Max. Truly enjoyed his company and hopefully, he enjoyed ours. This is our 3rd trip with Island Roots Charters but definitely will not be our last. See you next year.
