“Beautiful Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

We were picked up at the Grand Case Beach Club dock directly by Johann and we spent the day on Anguilla. First Rendevous Bay, then Cap Juluca for a beautiful walk and swim in the crystal waters. Then had a wonderful lunch on Meeds Bay, and our last stop was on Sandy Island. We have been before but wanted to see these beaches again as they are must when visiting St. Martin.
Jo is very well prepared on where to take you, what to see and to fit your needs. We were in a group of 5 adults and had a terrific day.
You can't go wrong if you take a trip with Johann !

“Should be Ranked #1!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

We booked a second trip with Captain Johann since we had such a great time on our first trip. Johann was very accommodating and was great with the kids. It was very relaxing, we never felt rushed. Johann is very nice and personable. He took us to some great beaches in Anguilla and two great restaurants for lunch. Also, saw lots of fish snorkeling. Ask Johann to take you to the large rock for a 15 foot jump into the water! Captain Johann provides unlimited snacks, beer, water, and snorkel gear. Well worth the cost.

“Great trip. Captain Jo is easy-going and professional.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

As the other reviewer said, Captain Johann (Joe-hahn) lives up to his reviews. We did a full-day trip to Anguilla. We had a very windy day with five or six foot seas, but Johann didn't let this spoil our day. His twin-hull boat is very stable in rough water. He crewed on tourist boats for years before going into business for himself. With his extensive local knowledge he's able to come up with an itinerary that works around most weather. We'd been to Anguilla before and had always wanted to go back. Mead's Bay is beautiful and the lunch place is worth the trip. We missed snorkeling at Tintamarre Island but now we have something new to do next time. Also don't miss Pinel Island, even if you rent a kayak and paddle there yourself.

“Captain Jo Lives Up to His Reviews”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

My family and I had a great day with Captain Jo on a half day charter! We were a family of 4 (myself, my wife, and 2 children 2.5 and 4.5). He was wonderful and charming, even carrying our daughter on his shoulders during a walk on one of the island stops. He also taught her to snorkel at Pinel Island. As an islander born and raised, he has intimate knowledge of everything about St. Martin. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a fun day on the water in a nice boat. Thanks again Captain Jo!

My husband, 8 year-old daughter and I had an amazing experience of swimming with turtles in Tintamarre, snorkeling in Creole Rock and a trilling ride through the ocean... Captain Jo is a wonderful guide and made this trip a 'beautiful souvenir' we wouldn't forget!!
