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.

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

He knew all the best snorkling and he also helped us out with tips on where to eat on the island. He also knew a lot of history on the area. Just made our day great! He was also so... 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

We spent one of our five days in St. John out on the water with Captain Ben and will definitely be booking a day with him when we return next year. We had an amazing day filled with awesome snorkeling, a delicious lunch and relaxing time on the water. We had a slight hesitation in booking the boat day since... More

Great trip. Super accomodating captain. Knows how to make every family member comfortable and how to ensure each has a great time. Wonderful stories about the islands and beyond. Safety is big but doesnt get in the way of fun. Enjoyed it so much we booked a 2nd day later in the week. Ben is awesome.
