Jolly Roger Charters
Ranked #8 of 27 Tours in Christiansted
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We did a sunset cruise and were two of 17 passengers with Captain Mike, Bridget, and RC, a crew of enthusiastic & interactive folks. The provided rum punch was tasty and copious. The personable Captain is a long time resident of the island and shared stories on houses and residents alike. He truly seemed desirous of providing exceptional service.

Originally booked with Caribbean Sea Adventures, but the called and told me that one of the trips I booked was cancelled and the other one I was being bumped for cruise ship passengers. They did recommend Captain Mike and Jolly Roger Charters.

I called Captain Mike and booked a half day snorkel trip to Buck Island. He has "the blue catamaran." Everyone knows it because it's easy to spot in the harbor and C'sted is a small town. He was friendly, the crew was friendly, fellow passengers were nice. It was a nice trip. They pointed out historical and natural scenery along the way and he actually turned off the motor and sailed which is pretty nice.

I had such a good trip that I came back a few hours later and did the sunset sail with him later that evening. Different crew, just as nice and they served up some bottomless rum punch.

I'd highly recommend this charter service. Call ahead or just show up on the boardwalk when you see the blue catamaran docked along side. Most likely they will be able to get you on board.

Jolly Roger Charters was very professional, but also seemed like I was going out on a boat with a friend.

We had such a great time with Captain Mike and his first mate Sofia. We chartered the whole boat for ourselves, and their price was a smidge more than the competition, but not so much that it put us off. We got great vibes from Captain Mike on the phone and decided to go with him, and we were surely not sorry. We were on the island for our anniversary and he made sure we had a great time. Pointed us to a fabulous little restaurant on the dock so we could buy some lunch to take along with us and it was as good as he said it would be. He and Sofia were friendly, personable, and knowledgeable. We listened as he told us some history of St Croix and Buck Island and chatted on a personal level with both of them as well. Fabulous day! The snorkeling is great, and Sofia gets right in the water and either tows you along with her or swims next to you. After snorkeling, we anchored near the beach and were able to eat on the shores and explore a bit before heading back. They served a fabulous rum punch on the return trip and cranked up some good tunes. Very enjoyable experience and if we ever go back, we will definitely take a return trip on the Jolly Roger!

Had a really nice trip to Buck Island on this catamaran. It was full of passengers from a cruise ship but didn't feel crowded. The crew of 3 (Captain Mike and mates) were friendly and spent time talking to everyone and making the experience very personal. Snorkeling the clear waters of Buck Island reef is spectacular. Rum punch on the sail back. Relaxing from beginning to end.

Captain Mike was awesome, laid back and super friendly. His crew consisted of two young girls, who were so much fun and they made some killer rum punch. They were very easy on the eyes too. The catamaran was great, not really huge so there weren't a million people on it. The water was beautiful and we snorkeled in a National Underwater Monument. Lots of fish and coral. It was really a great day and hope to go back the again to see Captain Mike. Bring sunscreen and be sure to put it on your back since it will be facing the sun while snorkeling. Bring water since the rum punch can't be served until after snorkeling and definitely not until your away from the National Underwater Monument.
