I traveled to St.Thomas and St.John with my 3 Texas girlfriends. We all agreed the boat days were the BEST and it was in part due to our wonderful Captain Mike! Captain Ryan made the booking so easy and even answered on an evening when he should have been off work! He was helpful with explaining the different boat options, fuel charge etc. After our arrival and day 1 with Captain Mike, we were hooked and booked 2 more days during our 2 week vacation! He took us all over St. John and other nearby islands for sightseeing and snorkeling/floating! The huge ice chest on board was a bonus 🍹🥂🍺🍾! We were able to stock it up for our day. Captain Mike was very knowledgeable regarding history of the island and took us to the most incredible spots on the island! We floated while looking at stingrays, turtles and beautiful sea life! The lunches we had were excellent!!! He knows the perfect and unique places to go (Lime Out, PizzaPIVI and another fabulous lunch spot! We truly felt spoiled by the hospitality we were shown. Don’t miss out on your chance to see the islands by sea with an amazing charter company that will not disappoint!

We had a great day with On The Sea Charter and captain Mike. Definitely the best part of our trip and best idea to do a private charter. Mike brought us to several great locations for snorkeling where we saw lots of fish, turtles, jelly fish and sting rays. Then to Lime Out for lunch and to another place on St. John's that you can only get to by boat for snorkeling and hanging out on the beach. He was a great captain and we had a wonderful day! Would definitely do this again!

We’ve visited St John numerous times and every year we make sure to do a boat day. It’s a must, and On The Sea Charters is #1. We’ve used Captain Ryan Mathew’s on more than one occasion and he is just the best. Very knowledgeable of what islands to visit for your personalized charter. Tons of fun and we will most certainly be back for Capt. Ryan and another ride on “Nine Lives” the boat.

This was our first time doing a private charter here in St Thomas/St John’s & we had a great time with Ryan. He took us to a variety of snorkel spots where we enjoyed seeing turtles, stingray, barracuda, and lots of beautiful fish & coral. We then hit Limeout and had awesome tacos while floating on the lily pads. What a great day!! Thanks Ryan. See you next time.
