The Most Affordable Charters on St John! Two Boats with Several Options!...

The Most Affordable Charters on St John! Two Boats with Several Options! 26 ft World Cat or 21ft Zodiac. Up for an adventure? Try our new 21ft Zodiac; it's fast & fun and great for affordable Half Day Charters or our Jost only trip. Charter our 26ft Worldcat and go Island hopping, Snorkeling or to a remote beach to just relax in the warm waters of the Caribbean. Why not spend your vacation exploring the US and British Virgin Islands on a private captained boat charter.

We enjoy having kids on board and have added children's snorkel gear to our fine selection of equipment. Bring the kids with you and we'll provide some beach toys for them to play with.

Our group of seven adults took the charter with Ben, and the experience was extremely positive and definitely recommended to anyone looking to take the charter! From beginning to end, Ben made sure the communication ahead of time was detailed and responded to all of our questions and concerns. Ben was quick to adapt to the weather and manage the... More

We were so fortunate that Ben answered our desperate plea for a last minute boat charter, prior to leaving St. Thomas during the busiest time of year. He made it so convenient for our family of 5 to meet him at the dock in Sapphire Marina for an early morning pick up. We enjoyed everything Ben had to offer from... More

Ok, Ben is just fun...knows the water, knows where to snorkel, knows how to get through all the BS (customs, restaurant lines, where to snorkel, etc)...His Painkillers are way better than those you will pay eight bucks a piece for at Soggy Dollar. Plan on coming back and having Ben CAPTAIN for us again. Trust him to help you guys... More

To start, if your looking for a top notch charter captain, look no further than Ben with Copeland Boat Charters. Ben is very knowledgeable of the island, a skilled captain and just an all around nice guy! Our plans for the day were changed a bit due to the high winds but that did not matter at all. We visited... More

Ben and The Beer Cooler were a perfect way to spend a day trolling through the BVIs. Ben made life very easy with customs and suggesting great snorkel areas and helped plan a day of adventure and fun! We would definitely use him again on future vacations.

This is our second year to charter with Ben and he never disappoints! He makes suggestions, and guides you to the best of everything! We snorkeled in two new spots. The Indians and the bight. We ate at Pirates Bight and then headed to the bubbling pool and finished at The B-Line for drinks before heading back to the villa.... More

An awesome day was had by all!
