We are deeply appreciative of Rick and Kevin making our anniversary revisit to SJI and the BVI's so enjoyable. We have used Lion in Da Sun in years past and wanted the first class service and trusted boating again! Kevin was our Captain! Our first trip was back to Sandy Spit after customs check in! Sandy Spit is we're our... More

We have just returned from our yearly trip to St. Thomas. While we were there, we took a trip on Lion in da Sun with Captain Rick. This was our 6th straight year that we have been out with Captain Rick. We enjoy taking this trip because it allows us to go places and do things that we can’t do... More

Last year we came and Capt. Rick showed us an amazing time! This year we basically built our vacation travels based on if he was available to take us out! Capt. Phil took us around today and he was just as amazing as Capt. Rick! Boats are nice and comfortable, either Capt. Rick or Capt. Phil are top notch, and... More

It was a trip of a lifetime...we went from 11am- sunset. He was early, very accommodating, and had vast knowledge of the area - and OH BOY can the boat move. My son tried to stump him all day with his question...not sure one could get past Kevin! He even took us snorkeling to his "secret" place where my children... More

The first thing you need to do when you come to St. John's is call Rick at Lion In Da Sun!! He is by far the best in the business! He takes you all around the islands and he definitely knows his stuff. He will take you to the best snorkeling spots and the best location for lunch. He even... More

Kevin was great! Lot of fun, Took us every place we wanted to go! Great recommendations for snorkeling and dining. Kevin kept us entertained and gave us great insight into history and the development of the islands.

My sister suggested we hire a boat for one of our days in St. John and we agreed, asking her to make the arrangements since she and her husband would be traveling with us. A few weeks before our trip she contacted several different charter companies and decided on Lion In Da Sun because Captain Rick was quick to respond,... More

Captain Rick is a knowledgeable, fun, guide who doesn't disappoint! Great tour of the BVI and surrounding area. If your looking to gain history of the area while seeing all the sights I highly recommend Lion in Da Sun! So pack your sunscreen and towel, (snorkel provided) and settle in for an amazing day on the water!
