“Better than Disney!”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

We celebrated our daughters wedding and welcomed our new son in law with a great adventure.
Captain Roy was like part of the family and a gracious host.
I asked my kids how they liked it and in unison they said "better than Disney! Can't wait to go back.

“Fantastic Day Spent Snorkeling in Caribbean”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

We had a wonderful day last week with Stthomasboatrental.com - we went to good snorkeling locations, had a delicious lunch on Normal Island, seemed to get to all locations (including BVI customs) before the crowds. We highly recommend John Bodnar and St. Thomas Boat Rental.

“Great day!!”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

This was a great experience. John was great about getting back to us in advance of our trip. Our captain Roy could not have been better. Our trip today centered on Norman Island with snorkeling at the Indians and the Caves. Lunch and beach time at Pirates Bright was perfect. Jumping off of the top deck of Willie t's was also a highlight. The boat, Innovation, was spacious and comfortable. Lots of space. Our gang of eight all said it was the best day of our vacation. Thank you to John and Roy for a perfect day. We had a blast. We highly recommend this trip for anyone coming to St Thomas.

“Another two amazing trips with St. Thomas Boat Rental!!”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

We recently spent two weeks in St. John and had used St. Thomas Boat Rental in 2013. I contacted Capt. John and he was very helpful in setting up both trips for us this year. We were graced with the expertise of Capt. Roy on these two trips and he was an absolute pleasure to spend the two days with. We always try to fit as much in as possible and this time was no different. On May 16th we headed to The Baths on Virgin Gorda, snorkeled Monkey Spit, stopped to see Jerry at B-Line Beach Bar, had lunch at Foxy's Taboo, and then to Soggy Dollar Bar. On May 22nd we headed to Three Buoy Reef to snorkel, then to The Indians for more snorkeling, snorkeled the south side of The Bight, had lunch at Pirate's Bight, snorkeled Water Point off Norman Island, stopped at B-Line Beach Bar, and then to Ivan's as our last stop. Capt. Roy was very accommodating and we very much enjoyed his company. There is no other boat rental that we would even consider using on our future trips. They are just amazing!!

“Great Day on the Water - "Innovation"”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Captain John was a pleasure to deal with! Our actual Captain for the day was Justin and he was wonderful. Very pleasant and knew the area like the local he was! We took "innovation" from the dock on St. Thomas to St. John's and had lunch and walked through both the shops and the local market area, We returned to the boat for a nice tour of multiple islands, and the my wife and I had the chance to snorkel for an hour as the rest of the party and kids waited on the boat with Justin. Everything is done at your leisure and completely up to the passengers. Our day was modified because of weather and both Captains were very accommodating. As others mention, price is in line with all other options on the Island, but this is much more personable! I would strongly recommend this option for anyone wanting to tour, snorkel, visit any island or just relax on the water. John communicates clearly and timely via email or phone and we are looking forward to going back!
