We took a full day trip with Captain Bob. It was the best thing we did during our trip on St. John. We got so see so many new places that we would never have known were there. Personal favorites were the Baths at Virgin Gorda and the Pirates Bight bar and restaurant on Norman Island! Bob was the perfect captain. He has lived there for more than a decade and was able to suggest places that matched our interests. We have been visiting St. John for more than 10 years ourselves and have been on numerous other boat tours. This trip beat them all……it was a 11 on a scale of 1 - 10! A big part of that was that Bob’s boat is bigger than many of the other boats and the dual hull makes the ride more comfortable navigating the waters. It has better seating and Bob had every amenity you would need (including a private bathroom). Bob was a knowledgeable and friendly guy and gave us many tips both on the trip and after (such as the very cool hiking trail to a private beach that we took the following day). Good guy! Good Boat! Good fun……do it you get the chance.

This past March we vacationed in St. John. Overall our most memorable day is when we went out with Captain Bob on a snorkeling expedition. Not only was the Captain extremely friendly, very knowledgable about the island and attractions and he took us to a fantastic restaurant for lunch that served the freshest lobster! If you are visiting St. John, I highly recommend spending a day on the water with Captain Bob!!!

This is the second year in a row we have booked charters with Captain Bob. His deep knowledge of the island, especially the tucked-away bays and spots where St. John is most natural and unspoiled, makes for a day of spectacular snorkeling. Whereas other excursions or charters have set destinations, Captain Bob will tailor the trip based on the favorability of the conditions in a particular snorkeling spot. A day with Captain Bob is great way to see the island, hear some fascinating stories, and to take in the natural beauty that St. John has to offer with an experienced and knowledgable guide.

A day with Capt Bob is the perfect way to visit the best snorkeling sites around St John. An absolute must for any St John's visit.

Each time we visit St. John we go out with Captain Bob. He works hard to customize our trip to meet our needs. This year we wanted calm waters where we could snorkel and take photos. He NEVER disappoints. Not only is he a conscientious captain looking out for the safety of his guests, his knowledge of the island is unparalleled. When you get home you won't think about the money you spent; you'll just remember a perfect day at sea. Much thanks Lisa & Bob!
