“Best day ever...”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

We just got back from a week on St. John. Our group consisted of four couples. We spent a great day with Captain Alex on his 28 foot boat. He took us to the baths on Virgin Gorda (great place). During our planning he responded quickly to our e-mails and answered every question we had. This was our third trip to St. John and the third time we spent a day at sea. Our day with Captain Alex was the best of the three boat trips and we plan on going back out with him next year...If he'll take us back (since Dan dropped the ladder in 40' of water - - and Alex skillfully retrieved it). Alex asked what beverages we wanted and he fulfilled our requests. We didn't want to stop on Jost Van Dyke... weren't too thrilled with Soggy Dollar and Foxys the past two years. We asked him to take us to Cooper Island Beach Club for lunch and he did. We also told him that several of the group enjoyed snorkeling and he took us to a shipwreck and the caves on Norman Island (best snorkeling ever?). Great day with a great captain on a great boat.

“Awesome day trips!”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

We did two separate full day trips with Captain Alex on his 28 foot power boat (very fast and fun!) and they were the highlights of our trip. There were 8 of us (adults) and we had plenty of space to store our stuff and move around and had comfortable seating. We stayed on Tortola and he came to pick us up at a little dock just a short walk from our hotel which was extremely convenient for us, not having to drive to a marina (or get a taxi). He had plenty of liquid refreshments on board for us (there is a small bathroom/head below deck) and we had our lunches off the boat at a couple different restaurants. His knowledge of the Islands is impressive and he took us to all the places we requested and a couple more new places to snorkel, pointing out other various island coastline points of interest. He was very prompt replying to my emails before our trip, and texts/phone calls on island, and VERY patient with our questions etc...and his pricing is more than fair. I could go on and on. We highly recommend Captain Alex and SunSea Charters!

“Great Memory with a Fantastic Captain”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

Capt Alex is fantastic. We chartered his boat for a full day sail to Jost Van Dyke, Sandy Cay/Spit, and Norman Island. There were rough seas and Alex made our boat charter comfortable. He was extremely accomdating and relentless in making sure we saw all of the sites we wanted to see. We just let him do his thing and he pointed out some great sites on the coastlines of Tortola and St John. A must do if you are ever in St Thomas! This was a memory of a lifetime and made our honeymoon complete.

“Amazing day with Captain Alex!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

If you want to spend a magical day on land and sea, Captain Alex can make it happen! The best part is he grew up on St Thomas and knows the local islands like the back of his hand! He knows all the hidden local places, white beaches and awesome snorkeling spots. he made the boat ride exhilarating and fun! We had a great time both on the water enjoying the sights and on remote and private beaches as well local island eateries! It was fun listening to stories about the islands. Great drinks, and an awesome time. can't wait to do it agian soon!

“PERFECT day! Great captain.”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Capt Alex created one of the best days for our vacation! He handled a loud group of 6 southerners with a lot of class and patience! He asked what we liked to do and built our day trip around giving us the best of the Caribbean. I would definitely charter Sun Sea for our future visits to the Virgin Islands.
