Yesterday we chartered a full day trip with Island Flyer Catamaran with Captain Hillary, and I’ll tell you it was WELL WORTH the trip. This is a must to adventure. We snorkeled, toured the beautiful beaches as well as took in the scenery. Could not have had a better day with a wonderful Captain, stable boat, Hillary also made sure we had the specific drinks we wanted aboard, of course this was extra and planned out in advance.

When visiting St. John, I highly recommend you see the beaches from off-shore as well as from on-shore.

Thanks Captain Hillary and Island Flyer for a wonderful day on, and out of the water, the day could not have better.

Our day on the water with Captain Hillary flew by so quickly, which is a true testament to the amount of fun we had on Island Flyer's catamaran.

My family of 12 with ages ranging from as young as 2 to as old as 76 year old was perfect for all of us. Our main concern for a boat trip was that there was ample shading from the sun and a day out that didn't have an itinerary we needed to stick to. Our mother recently had a double knee replacement surgery, so we also wanted to make sure that she could get into and out of the boat easily and with this catamaran, it met our every need.

The catamaran in itself fit all 12 of us comfortably with lots more room to spare which made it nice that there was enough room for us to move about and not feel crowded. The catamaran was equipped with noodles and life jackets as well as floating boards and snorkel gear.
We had delicious banana bread and rum punch as snacks as well as other soft drinks and juices to choose from.

As previously stated, we didn't want a planned itinerary so we told Hillary what we were looking for in our day and she happily obliged by taking us to Caneel Bay for a nice swim and snorkel as well as Christmas Cove for Pizza Pi.

Many family members in our group aren't strong swimmers and the snorkel vest given wasn't the best for the younger kids. This would be the only thing I think I could suggest for Island Flyer to look into- - The actual Life Jackets that securely buckled up in the front were a lot more comfortable and our kids swam with more confidence when they wore those but there were limited amounts. I would suggest getting just a few more, but other than that, we had an absolute blast and will not hesitate to use Island Flyer or ride with Captain Hillary in the future again for our group trips.

Thank you for a fun day out in the waters Island Flyer and Hillary, you'll be hearing from us again!

Thank you so much for your time and excellent review! We are thrilled you and your family had a great time. That is what we strive for and are so happy to hear we met or exceeded that expectation. We could not do that without Capt. Hillary.

Thank you for the tips about the youth life jackets. We will most definitely look into that and purchase more comfortable ones for our younger guests. This is just the type of information we need to make sure we are always improving.

We really appreciate your business and look forward to seeing you again!!

Take care and enjoy the rest of your summer.

This was a perfect snorkeling day with Captain Hillary. We wanted to snorkel places not densely populated that we couldn't access from a beach, and she delivered. By the way when given a choice have pizza delivered by boat.

Perfect day for 7 people spanning 3 generations and 19-83 years. The boat was large and clean with plenty of space in the sun or shade for all. Snorkel equipment was well maintained and we were taken to great snorkeling spots away from any crowds. We stayed in USVI having never been before and don't feel like we missed a thing. Capt Hillary catered to our varied needs so all of us had a great day, a day we will all remember!
