“This was an amazing experience and Capt Max was a fantastic host!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2010

We are a family of four that had a limited time in St. Thomas. I panicked when our cruise ship changed our port schedule day in St Thomas while on the ship. Max was able to have another family change their date Thank you whoever you are.. We were able to meet him at the marina by boarding a taxi at the cruise port without difficulty. Capt Max helped us out by returning us to the cruise dock with plenty of time before the Freedom of the Seas departed.The day couldn't have gone more smoothly with us snorkeling at several great spots. Lunch on St John was a great way to break up the tour. We saw sea turtles, sharks, conch, and lots of fish courtesy of the guide skills of the Captain. We highly recommend Chillaxin Tours and if on a cruise ship contact him in advance and he will make your short shore excursion fantastic. December 23,2010

“We had such a great time on Chillaxin'!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2010

We definitely recommend hiring Chillaxin' if you are looking for a charter around the US or British Virgin Islands! This past November was our 5th trip to St. John, but the first time we hired a private charter and it well exceeded our expectations. We arranged the day through Captain Max and had Captain Sean as our boat captain. Captain Sean was so easy to hang out with and went out of his way to make sure we all felt really comfortable. He snorkeled with us and was really knowledgeable about the sea life. We traveled with our daughter who absolutely loved the boat ride and even got snorkel gear on herself for a swim. We liked the flexibility of being able to decide where we wanted to go vs the pre-set itinerary with larger charters. He was respectful about where we wanted to go and gave his opinion/suggestion as well about the where to spend some time. We would definitely hire Chillaxin' for a private charter if we return to St. John and hopefully would be able to have Captain Sean again too! (My mother-in-law and her sister were with us and they adored Captain Sean... an Irish connection)

One of the best days of our entire vacation. Max and Christa made us feel at home on their boat and made our day with them so much fun. Great people, great boat, great day.

“Wonderful day with Max and Christa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2010

We had a great time with Chillaxin' and Max and Christa! It all started with the process of booking which was smooth and easy as Max answered my 1000 questions quickly and happily before the start of our vacation.

On the day of the trip, they met us at the beach of our hotel and the staff on the beach took us out to the boat on a little dingy. The boat, Chillaxin', was perfect. The reason for the trip was as a birthday gift for my 64 year old mom. She got on the boat, found her perfect seat and had a big huge grin on her face. The boat is so comfortable and spacious and easily accomodated the four of us plus Max and Christa.

After boarding and being given Mimosas and Bloody Mary's, they took us to a beautiful bay off of St. John where they provided a great breakfast of fruit and pastries. While we ate, Max talked to us to plan out the day. We had been to the Virgin Islands many times in the past but had never snorkled around the Indians in the British Virgin Islands nor had we gone to the Willy T's. So there was the plan!

After a quick stop in Tortola to go through customs (which Christa did for us while we slowly toured Soper's Hole), we were off to the Indians. It was a beautiful day and the ride was smooth and easy. Once there, we all got on our snorkel gear and hopped in the water. Both Max and Christa were with us in the water which was great to two reasons. One was that they pointed out fish, coral, and other underwater life that we may not have seen on our own. The other reason was that Christa helped my mom swim against the current when we returned to the boat (Thanks Christa!). But that area to snorkel is fantastic. Great formations, tons of fish, lots of life! Perfect suggestion from Max!

After that we stopped at the Willy T's for lunch where we met Zeus the bartender and had a couple or more Zeus Juices. The food was really good too!

Then it was off to Jost Van Dyke for a quick stop at Foxy's and then over to Soggy Dollar where we just enjoyed the good life of sitting on the beach in White Bay drinking Painkillers. The Soggy Dollar is also known for having a few Ring Games around where you try to catch a ring onto a hook. So Max and I were standing by one of the games where a guy was failing to hook the ring. The guy bet Max and I that we couldn't get the ring on the hook in five tries. Max then nails it on his first try. Just a quick story to point out that Max, as well as Christa, not only make your day enjoyable but have a great time doing it.

After Jost it was time to head back. On previous trips to Jost on smaller boats, the trip back had been rough. Chillaxin' made it smooth and easy. My mom, in her seat, enjoyed the nice smooth ride all the way to Cruz Bay where we checked in with customs, and then all the way back to the hotel, where Christa called ahead to make sure that someone could get us in the hotel dingy to take us back to the beach.

We are looking forward to our next trip down to St. Thomas and will definitely take Chillaxin' or Chillaxin' II out on a trip to the BVIs. After being on a few charters in the past, this experiance with Max, Christa, and Chillaxin' is what charting boats in the Virgin Islands should all be like. I can't recommend them strongly enough!
