“Why Go Anywhere Else ?”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Have been going to St. John now for 6 years.We love to snorkel and are experienced snorkelers. Booked a trip with Big Blue and were treated royally by Captain Dave. Professional, personable, highly skilled with the boat and he knew just what we were looking for in a day out to see some of the best that the Virgin Islands offer, both USVI and BVI.
Kudos to Mindy for having such a great business and for her finding this awesome Captain to add to her employ. We WILL be back and we WILL tell all our peers !!!!! Thank- You for a superb day in the Islands.

“Powerboat with Capt Davs”
Reviewed March 14, 2014 via mobile

We went out with Capt Dave today. We are avid snorkelers and spend at least a week on St John each year. Capt Dave found us some new and great places to snorkel. Very good trip. Will definitely go back out with them next year. Thanks for a great day!!!!!

“Highlight of our Trip to St. John”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

We (me, my wife and our 3 children under 13) spent a great day on the seas with Capt. Conner. In a word he and the trip were awesome. It was the highlight of a vacation full of great memories. From the caves at Norman island to swimming at Sandy spit to diving off the boat at Jost Van Dyke, we had a fantastic day aboard the Gypsea Girl. Conner was friendly, cool, accommodating, knowledgeable and an all around great tour guide. I cannot recommend this service highly enough. From the initial email inquiry until we were dropped off at the end of the trip, everything was handled professionally and with a smile. This is a great way to tour the islands near St. John.

“Thank you, Captain Mindy!”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Spent last Tuesday with Captain Mindy. Our group of six friends and family members couldn't have been happier with our trip. Mindy is smart, helpful, funny, friendly, and very informative. We enjoyed her boat, her company, and her playlist!
The scenery was spectacular, the snorkeling good, and our visit to Jost Van Dyke was so much fun and felt as far from winter as we could hope to get. I drove through a brief snow squall today and thought of the beautiful Caribbean and our perfect day on Gypsea Girl.
If you're on St. John and hoping to get out on the water, Big Blue Excursions VI couldn't be better.
