We scheduled a private 1 day charter with Copeland Boat Charters. This was such an amazing trip from start to finish! As most of us do, we research all options to what fits our interests for a day on the water - snorkeling spots, islands, and places friends say you must include. The bigger charters were not as appealing to... More

We had a group of six ranging from 12 to 70. Ben picked us up at the Westin. We spent the day in BVI...snorkeling at Normans Island, lunch at Pirates Bite, a stop at Sandy Cay and a stop at Jost Van Dyke. Ben completed the customs paperwork ahead of time and we were through customs in minutes. We had... More

Captain Ben led us on a half-day snorkeling trip around St. John with our three boys, ages 6, 7, and 9. Not only did Ben know the best snorkel spots, he was helpful and patient with our beginner snorkel crew. He gave lots of great tips, fun facts about the island, and knew how to make the experience fun and... More

Ben is very familiar with all the beaches and the best snorkeling spots around the island. We had a rental car, so we askedhim to take us to snorkeling spots that we couldn't drive ourselves to. We had 3 amazing spots to explore and we saw nurse sharks, rays, hundreds of fish, and, coolest of all, we swam with the... More

Captain Ben was absolutely amazing, whether a group of friends or a romantic getaway I can assure you that Ben will take amazing care of you. He is friendly and prepared, you could tell he just wanted you in paradise and not messing with paperwork or customs. He had everything ready to go and we just walked passed other boats... More

Ben is very attentive to his guests, a very safe navigator of the waters and is very knowledgeable of his surroundings. Quite frankly, he is a fun guy to spend a few days with. We... More

The day consisted of just me & my husband plus Capt. Ben & his 11 yr. old son Lincoln (very respectful & smart kid who he's training to be his mate). Had a great day on the water snorkeling! I'm not the strongest swimmer nor am I very coordinated! Lol Capt. Ben was so kind, patient and helpful in trying... More

We chartered with Capt. Ben for a full day charter on "Beer Cooler", the boat. Awesome boat and awesome trip. We had pre-arranged our itinerary, but after getting on the boat we informed Capt. Ben that we wished to alter our trip, if possible. He could not have been more accommodating and even made suggestions related to our new itinerary.... More

I can't say enough good things about Captain Ben and his wife, Jennifer. They were very responsive and professional. Captain Ben not only knew the great snorkeling spots but knew what order to do them in to miss the crowds. He was very accommodating and helpful. I would highly recommend Copeland Boat Charters for anything you would want to do... More
