Captain Wilson gave us an unforgettable day! He even surprised some locals who were with us with a great spot to snorkel. The equipment was well maintained and the boat had a very smooth ride. Enjoyed our perfect day in the BVI with Captain Wilson.

What started as a one way trip, has backfired into to a yearly 2 trip tradition. And we are glad it did. The Davis Family trips are always highly anticipated. See you next year.
