“FANTASTIC Day Sail to St. John, JVD, Sandy Spit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Very responsive and accommodating to schedule our charter. Six adults, six children, ages 2yrs - 10 yrs old. This is a first class operation - incredibly accommodating and flexible. We were initially on the "Twin" boat, however some of the younger children who had never been on a similar boat were a little apprehensive. Alex was very fast to coordinate a boat change for us. John, Alex and Roy all helped with the transition, and we set off on the sail without any issue. It was the highlight of our trip. Roy was incredibly knowledgeable about the islands, and was great with the kids, making sure they were comfortable. First stop was a pristine cove in St. John where EVERYONE went snorkeling, some for the first time. We tied up and the cove, no chop/waves and the snorkeling was fantastic. We stopped at White Bay, Foxy's and Sandy Spit. Thank you to Roy, John and Alex for everything!! Would highly recommend them for your charter.

“One great day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Our day on the charter was the highlight of our trip. Captain John Bodnar was excellent. He was quick to reply to each of my dozen pre-trip emails He was able to accommodate all 15 of us on two boats. Captain Alex and Roy were awesome and made recommendations throughout the day that ensured we hit all the spots we wanted too. We hit the Indians, Pirates Bight for lunch, Willie T’s, Caves and then Soggy. It was a full day that everyone enjoyed. I highly recommend St. Thomas Boat rentals – awesome service, responsive and professional. Thanks Captains!

“best snorkeling sights”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

capt. John took my family to one of a kind snorkel sights. there were no other boats around at either place. We saw so many fish and lots of coral and colorful sea fans. we had three snorkel stops, a lunch stop then ended the day on beautiful White Bay on JVD. Innovation is the best price and best fuel efficient boat trip that we have been on. It was so nice to have a captain and this boat for the day around the islands.

“Couldn't have been better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Went out on the Innovation with John B. and had a fantastic time. John had great narrative for all the BVI and US Islands. We snorkeled based on his recommendations as well as island hopped based on his recommendation, we couldn't have planned the day any better. We will be back to see John or any one of his captains again. We ran into one of his other captains out on a day trip and that family was just as pleased as we were, it is really customer service based attraction.

“Amazing time in the islands!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

I had the pleasure of chartering the Innovation with several friends July 7 & 8. Captain John Bodnar was excellent--fun, upbeat, and very knowledgeable. His mastery of the craft and flexible, approachable demeanor made for an absolutely perfect trip to Jost van Dyke and Virgin Gorda and spots in between, even with spots of rainy weather. We were able to rearrange some logistics of our trip due to the weather with ease.We couldn't have had a better time, and will definitely be putting a call into St. Thomas Boat Rental the next time we're near!!
