Mindy was fantastic ! We had a wonderful time. She is the right person in the right business. The boat is perfect size for getting around the islands. She also keeps looking good. Everyone in our group was very happy we took this excursion. We all highly recommend Mindy and her boat !!!!

A group of 7 women from St. John went out with Mindy this past Saturday and had the best day! From selecting the date and planning our destinations for the day to the end of our wonderful trip, Mindy was professional and friendly and knowledgeable and responsive. We snorkeled at Congo, checked in at West End, relaxed and swam at Sandy Cay, and ended up at White Bay. Everything from the music choices to the set up of the comfortable boat was perfect---can't recommend this boat or company or captain enough!

We look forward every year booking with Big Blue. They customize trips and can always recommend the best trip. This is our 3 year back and we've had a different experience each time. First, a romantic sunset sail where my (now) husband proposed to me. Second, a bachlorette party where the girls had mud baths and massages on the beach. Now, 2 years later we returned for a relaxing booze cruise away from our very young children. Pure medicine. We love Captain Mindy but equally are super pleased with the other 2 captains that took the helm. Thank you Big Blue for a life time of memories. We will see you next year!! We look forward to your young mate , Tristan teaching our kids to snorkel one day soon. Look for our christmas card!!!!

Can't stay away. We always book with Big Blue as we've been going to St. John for 20 years and charter a boat every time. We've tried most but Big Blue by far has the best customer service: the most personable experience. Now they have a sail boat that you can charter and stay overnight to experience real boat life. We stayed as a family and it was definitely the highlight of our trip.

We took a trip with Capt. Mindy on September 18, a few days into our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a better day. She was knowledgeable, personable, and we had a great time!We took a private tour with her, just the two of us, and were so glad we did. She showed us great beaches, took us out to the Baths in Virgin Gorda, then back to Jost Van Dyke. She handled customs so we could just relax and enjoy. The Baths are so beautiful! We swam from the boat to the entrance and she picked us up on the other side. She even got a great picture of us! At Jost, we had a yummy lunch at Soggy Dollar and then headed to Foxy's. It was closed but Foxy was there telling stories and playing his guitar. It was just the 3 of us with his son and a truly memorable part of our trip. If there is anything special you need don't hesitate to ask, she is truly accomodating ;) We were sad when the trip was over but grateful to have a new friend. We will be back to the islands soon and when we do, we will be giving Gypsea Girl a call for sure! For a fantastic personal trip or group tour on the water, book with Big Blue Excursions. You won't be disappointed!!
