Our group of four thoroughly enjoyed a morning of snorkeling 3 locations off the north shore of St. John with Captain Pogan. Each stop featured a unique underwater landscape, abundant and varied marine life, and no other human life. Pogan was personable and professional throughout the trip and his assurances of his "buoyancy" allowed our group of relatively inexperienced snorkelers... More

We, husband and myself, had a private charter with Dylan on a fabulous boat, he was so very personable and willing to make it our day. Just a beautiful experience with many memories for a lifetime. Thank you. So sorry it has taken me this long to get a review posted.

We chartered for a full day with Lion in Da Sun and had a great time! The boat is fast and well laid out with plenty of room for our group of 6. Our Captain, Rick, was funny, friendly and also told really interesting stories about the various places we visited, an unexpected bonus! We started off with a short... More

What an excellent day on the water with Capt. Steve. He took our family of 4 for an incredible July 4th day on the water. First off, he picked us up right on the beach at the Westin which was so convenient. We decided that we wanted to spend the entire day in the US rather than going to the... More

We had a great day with Captain Phil, excellent way to see the area. You can basically customize your day to accommodate whatever you are interested in doing or seeing by water. Highly recommend doing this!

Looked at a number of options for snorkeling trips. After reading several reviews, checking out a couple possibilities first hand, I decided to go with Lion In Da Sun out of Sapphire Beach Marina...great choice! The captain and the boat were ours for the day. We didn't want the tourist version, we wanted to go to specific spots starting with... More

We (3x adults, 2x kids) had the most amazing day today touring around BIVI with Rick aboard Scout #1. We snorkelled in some fantastics spots and saw cool coral reef, dozens of variety of fish and the best tropical island you can imagine. This has been the best day of the holiday and can't wait to come back next year... More

We started searching for private tours back in Dec. that could accommodate my 84 year old mother on a scooter. I couldn't even get anyone to call me back until one guy called me and suggested I call Captain Rick. I called him, he answered, and told him what the deal was and he said we'd find a way. We...

While Captain Rick was booked on our your day, he sent his very awesome employee Brett to take us out for the day. It was the best day of our vacation!! We went to the most beautiful places imaginable and he tailored our visit to exactly what we wanted to see and do. We had very limited time since we... More

We did an all day charter with Captain Rick on Lion In Da Sun. We really enjoyed seeing the islands and beautiful beaches from the water view. Captain Rick took us to some excellent snorkeling locations and provided quality snorkeling gear. We also visited the British Virgin Islands and enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Taboo's, which is a beachfront restaurant... More
