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.

We were looking for a half day charter from St. John and decided upon Copeland Boat Charters. Best decision. Captain Ben was extremely knowledgeable taking us out to Jost Van Dyke for the day. He picked us up right in front of the Westin, very convenient. Boat was very clean and provided us with the best painkillers on the island.... More

Ben's wife Jennifer made the booking process smooth with excellent communication. We let Ben know what we wanted to see and do and he... More

For four years running we had booked, excursions to the B.V.I. and snorkeling, with Palmtree Charters. With the sad and untimely passing of Capn' John Brandi, we were looking for an alternative. Let me not rush into this review without giving Capn' John his props. The man was one-of-a-kind! A legend on the island and a prince among men. He... More

Captain Ben took our family of five out on a full day boat tour complete with several excellent snorkeling sites, lunch on the east end of Jost Van Dyck and visits to several secluded beaches. He made customs easy on both sides and helped us out of our busy mainland mindsets. We will definitely go out with their charter service... More
