This was a great experience and the best time we had while visiting the Virgin Islands. Ryan was our captain and made the experience top notch. Ben met us at the pick-up spot...the Westin, which I thought was extremely professional. Most charters required a trip...More

Ben basically rolls out the red carpet (or faded beach towel, but still) for you as a guest on Beer Cooler. He'll take you anywhere you want to go, but we deferred to him for an itinerary and he nailed it. Once out of customs...More

We used Copland Boat Charters while on vacations at St. Thomas. We took a ferry over to St. John and Ryan took us to a bunch of perfect snorkel sights. We swam with sea turtles, and had an awesome day! They took us to a...More

We cannot not say enough great things about this charter. Ben was wonderful from the beginning with communication and planning. We booked a full day from 10-7pm so that we could finish with a sunset and Pizza Pi. His boat was being serviced so he...More

Copeland Boat Charters was excellent to deal with. Quick to respond. We had a full day out with Captain Ryan. He was great too. Very knowledgeable about the area. It all contributed to a great day on the water.

9th Trip and Still Can’t Get Enough (5 Replies)
We spent 11 nights on St. John in April. We rented an amazing waterfornt villa in Coral Bay – Casa Tua. A bit expensive but nothing compared to a beachfront room at Caneel.

We had never been to the brunch in all the years we have been coming to St. John. We went back 3 more times for lunch, apps and dinner. Tourist Trap – Went there for Drive Left Drink Right...More

So we got to our villa on Sunday afternoon, the boys (three teenagers, all 17 years old) played in the pool, and then we went into town to walk around after a simple dinner at the house. Then it was a quiet night under the stars, enjoying the pool and view and the fact that we were on St. John! Monday we had booked a half day charter with Copeland Boat Charters. We went to Low Key Watersports and fitted everyone with snorkel gear (included with the rental of Still Waters, the villa above...More
