We had an amazing day trip to the BVI's aboard the Gypsea Girl. The boat was very comfortable and spacious for our group of 9. It came stocked with plenty of beverages. Everyone loved jumping off the upper tower. We even "rescued" a large blow up swan that was lost at sea. We had a fun time floating in it and it joined us in our trip for the day. We donated it to Captain Sharp, who gave it a good home. Captain Sharp was so easygoing and was well liked by everyone. I highly recommend Big Blue Excursions for your adventure! I look forward to our next outing with Blue Blue!!! Thanks again Captain Sharp!!!

Sharp and Margie went above and beyond to make this our best snorkeling trip ever.

We took the Gypsea Girl for our family of 10 including ages ranging from 4 to 78. First, this is one of the few boats that accommodates over 8 people at an affordable price. Second, it is a comfortable ride with enough shade when you need it.

All the planning and booking was easy and professional with Margie walking us through all the details. No fuss, no stress. Lots of flexibility.

Captain Sharp is genuinely warm and thoughtful besides being really good at finding the best places to snorkel based on the conditions.

My parents both in their late seventies needed a little coaxing to get in the water (not good swimmers). Sharp was kind enough to jump in and help my mother get comfortable with the water. She went on to do some snorkeling. She cherishes the memory.

Now about the snorkeling. We went to Lovabgo, mermaid's chair and Mary's point. Very calm and fun snorkeling with lots to see. Sharp picked the right spots and managed the time for the half day trip perfectly.

You cannot go wrong with Big Blue Excursions. It is very good to see people who are so passionate about their job, thoughtful, competent and professional to the core.

Thank you Sharp and Margie.

Our adventure with Big Blue Excursions was amazing!! We asked for a combination snorkeling/lobster snaring outing and Captain Sharp delivered!! We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Dingy's before heading back out to catch a few lobsters for dinner. Even when it started raining, our adventure continued! We are looking forward to our next outing withBig Blue Excursions!!

My friends and I had an amazing day cruising around the BVI on Big Blue. The boat is very comfortable, with plenty of room. We loved the tuna tower! Captain Cody was amazing. It was obvious that he knew the boat and the waters like the back of his hand. I would recommend the company, boat, and captain to anyone interested in the best day ever!
