We heard about Caribbean Alibi via word of mouth when we got to St. Thomas and have gone out twice now with Captain Kevin. Both days were different and unique! Our first trip was action packed - we circumnavigated St. Thomas island including a stop to snorkel off St. James island. Then we cruised through the harbour at Charlotte Amalie complete with history lesson from the very knowledgeable Captain Kevin. Next stop to snorkel was Little Flat Cay. Then to Mermaids Chair and Sandy Bay for a swim and lunch. Kevin then took us to the back side of Thatch Cay for a thrilling cliff jump. Admittedly we had to make a pit stop at Hull Bay Beach for a beverage run and a Frisbee throwing session at Little Magen Beach.

Our second trip was just as thrilling with a visit to The Baths on Virgin Gorda. Kevin swam ashore with us and gave us a fantastic guided tour through the trail. From there we went to Marina Cay to snorkel and then boated along the southern group of BVI's with narration through Dead Man's Chest, Peter, Norman, Salt, Cooper, Ginger and Jerusalem islands. Then we ended our adventure at Cruz Bay immigration to check back into the USVI's. Everything ran smoothly. So much so that we have booked two more trips. This was all before I looked at Tripadvisor and saw the numerous excellent reviews here. We have been out on other charters and suffice it to say - this is the best charter company on island!

One thing to keep in mind is that the conditions of the ocean dictate when and where any Captain can/will take you - Captain Kevin is very well versed in nautical know-how and safety not to mention the history and geography of the area.

We highly recommend Caribbean Alibi!

An incredibly fantastic time under Captain Kevin's direction. Swim suit and T-shirts...Pure and complete relaxation visiting some of the planet's best beaches, walking a most scenic USVI coastline and snorkeling lush island hidden coves with sea turtles and fabulous tropical fish too numerous to name.
Captain Kevin kept us sharp and enthused with his expert boatmanship, and inherent knowledge of his native island's history and great culture. From St. Thomas thru Pillsbury Sound passed St. John down to Honeymoon beach... Trunk beach Cinnamon beach and so many others...A full day of ours and ours alone is now one of our most memorable ever.
Thank you Steve and Kevin...

One full day, open water, great sites, great food, hiking, snorkeling, great stories of the history of the VI and BVI...everyone of our family of 9 said this charter was the best decision we made all week. Our captain, Kevin, was very knowledgable, friendly, outgoing, respectful and safe. It felt as if the day flew by and we all immediately said we would book again the next time we visited. If you want a great perspective and appreciation for the beauty of the islands, contact Steve and setup a charter for your visit. It is well worth the time!

Chartering the Alibi was the smartest thing we could of done! Steve and Kim took us island hopping to all the best spots from Virgin Gorda to Anegada (where you can see flamingos in the wild). There is no other way I would want to see the islands and couldn't of asked for better hosts and captains! I definitely would use them every time I head to the Caribbean!!!

Kevin was our captain the day we all went out on boat trip. He was great! We left St Thomas and traveled to BVIs for an awesome fun day! It was a trip with our wedding guests the week of our destination wedding. It was almost as fun as wedding itself! Great experience as captain gave us bits of history along the way plus took us to some hidden gem spots before our final BVI jost van dyke island. Great music, snorkeling, and seeing the BVIs with family and friends. I would highly recommend this charter as a must on your next vacation!
