Captain Scott and first mate Aaron were the best guys around! The whole day trip was catered to what we wanted to do and Scott showed us around St.John to places we haven’t been before. Our group consisted of young adults in their early twenties all the way to people who are in their 60’s. When I say everyone had a great time is a total understatement!! The boating experience is by far the best I have been apart of thus far. Weather it is your first time on the island or your 10th time(like us) you definitely need to book El Gato with captain Scott. P.S. He’s got Shotski’s which guarantees a good time.

We booked El Gato twice for the week of our vacation with Captain Scottie and Chavez as his mate. We had an amazing time and their knowledge of the island is incredible. We swam with turtles, snorkeled in reefs and sat on white sand beeches. They were so awesome with children. My son loved snorkeling with Chavez! Thank you for the memories!! This is the best way to see the islands and worth it!

Another awesome trip on the El Gato! This is hands down the only way to see the real beauty of the islands. Boat day is always the best day of our yearly vacay. Captain Scott and Ben made sure we had a memorable and fantastic experience. This is our third year on the El Gato and highly recommend this charter. Until next year ☀️

Spent the day on the El Gato with Captain Scott and Ben- legitimately the best day, ever. They are both super fun, friendly guys who make sure your day cruising around St. Thomas and St. John is -hands down- the best day of your vacation. Since the BVI are closed, Scott shuttled us into beaches to swim, let us lounge on the swim pad, and let us wander the streets of St. John for a bit. We cruised and enjoyed drinks, snacks, stories, and music. Would recommend to anyone on earth. Thanks for some memories that will last a lifetime, guys! I’m definitely looking forward to doing it again next time!
