Great trip with Capt Jay. He personalized this trip for us to see so many great things and moved us away from the rain outs. This is the best way to see the islands the way you want to see them on your time.

Mostly what I see is snorkeling trips and trips to BVI, does Palm Charters offer scuba diving excursions as well?

Thank you for your inquiry. We do not offer scuba.
This sounds like a perfect day for my family (kids ages 14 and 11). Can I ask about the cost?
