On a recent visit to St Thomas, a few friends and I secured a captained powerboat charter with Rick Maes, owner of Lion in da Sun. We spent the most fabulous day visitng islands, swimming in beautiful waters, dining and drinking at quaint small local bars. It was truly a day to remember! Rick was a great captian; knew the local history, introduced us to Foxy himself, took pictures of our group and followed up afterwards. He made the trip fun and tailored it to our needs and desires. I'd recommend Rick to anyone who wants to have a out of the ordinary, fantastic experience in St Thomas.

Capt. Rick will tailor make an itinerary for you that is sure to please. From great snorkeling spots to famous "watering holes" (Foxy's, Soggy Dollar, etc.), to a great lunch at one of the dock 'n dine restaurants this is the way to go. Rick is very professional, the boat is clean and well maintained, there is good snorkeling equipment on board.

On a recent girls' trip to St. John, we had a great time with Captain Rick! We've snorkeled in most of the spots that can be reached by car or by foot, and we wanted to try some new spots reachable only by boat. We asked to stay within in the USVI, and Captain Rick took us to places we did not know even existed. It did not take him long to figure out what we were hoping to see, and he gave us a spectacular day. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the islands (especially St. John) from the water, and what a treat to try out snorkel spots that were brand new to us....particularly the spot with the yellow tail snapper feeding frenzy. Awesome!

Capt. Rick was an awesome captain for the day. We mentioned a few things we would like to do and he delivered. From lobster at Sidney's to just relaxing at Sandy Spit....the day was awesome. Wish we would have had more time in the day to spend more time at the great places we visited.
