My wife and I were in St. John during hurricane Rita and all the excusions from the Westin were canceled. We contacted Capt. John and he cam over from St. Thomas to take us on a sunset cruise/snorkel. It was an awesome trip. The boat was clean and sturdy and Capt. John was a terrific guide. I would HIGHLY recommend Capt. John and St Thomas Boat Rental to anyone visiting St. John or St. Thomas.

I lost track of time and totally forgot about your snorkel during the sunset cruise. That was a great snorkel and the seas calmed down quite nicely for us. I'm so glad you enjoyed.
Thanks again

I've used St. John Concierge for 6 years and every trip we had was absolutely the best time ever, that is why I book all my trips with Johnny. They know every boat captain on the island worth their salt so we don't have to waste our time trying to figure out who is still in business every year. We just got back from Virgin Gorda trip with 8 of us on Innovation with Captain Roy as our guide. Everyone was very impressed with the trip and the many stories Capt Roy told us along the way. We had never been to the restaurant at the top of the Baths and it was just grand, the view the food and the pool was very refreshing. We ended up staying 3+ hours just enjoying ourselves. For some in our party it was there first time to the islands and they were so impressed with the arrangements they said it was the best trip of their lives. We decided to get the most out of the trip and head to Soggy Dollar for the rest of the afternoon, which ended up the best decision. Other trips I had been on didn't spend much time at each location due to time limitations so you end up rushing from place to place. The boat itself is a pontoon style that rides very smooth with a new Bimini that covers the entire deck which kept the sun off us the entire trip. The boat ride was extremely dry so you didn't get wet when you didn't want too. We had one in our group with a twisted ankle so she was very comfortable laying in the large seats so she could elevate her foot. Johnny escorted our troop to the dock and met us upon our return to make sure everything went as planned and we were happy with the trip. Now that is service!!! All I can tell you is if you didn't book with Johnny you didn't get the best of the best.

I've rented boats on St. Thomas for years to visit the BVI when friends visit. This is the first time our group went out with Captain John, and we will be renting from him exclusively in the future. The boat has tons of room and the fuel consumption is the best we have ever had, drastically reducing the cost of the trip. He has snorkel gear onboard, a fresh water shower, lots of coolers and a fun trampoline in the front. I definitely recommend this boat!

Can't say enough positive remarks about John, our captain, his boat and our experience. As you'll find there are main private boat options in St. Thomas but what differentiates John from other competitors is his fuel efficient boat. John guarantees your daily fuel cost won't exceed $150 (ours was $85). By comparison John said a normal daily fuel cost is approx. $450.

Fuel cost aside, John has 12+ years boating experience and consequently is super knowledgeable and professional. I rarely write reviews but felt compelled based on my very positive experience today.

Thanks John!

We had a great day with Captain John onboard the Innovation. Picked us up in St. John and then first stop at Foxy's for some Fire Water, a quick swim to Sand Spit for a Corona commercial re-enactment, lunch at the Bubble Pool -( this was awesome) and an afternoon at The Soggy Dollar for Nilla Killers and swimming. Captain John was a great guide, living the life we all want! We would all highly recommend using St.Thomas Boat Rental for any excursion, very reasonable priced! Can't wait to go again!
