Our day trip on the Gypsea was wonderful!
We have been on many small charters out of St. John over the years. After a frustrating day sail last year where the winds and currents left us very limited, we chose a power cruise. This was a nice sized powerboat accommodating four of us very comfortably. There was both sun and shade available.
Our Captain, Sharp, was very personable and well prepared, even pulling out rain jackets during a brief squall.
Probably the best asset of this excursion is their flexibility. We awoke to pouring rain, heavier than we’ve ever experienced in 21 years visiting St. John. When I called Margie, she gave us the option to cancel, reschedule, or wait a few hours and see. As it was our last opportune day during the trip, we waited it out and Sharp was at the dock 2 hours after our appointment time, ready to go and well informed of where the weather would be best around the islands.
We also were given the opportunity to extend a half day tour into a full day without a pre-commitment, as there were no other charters booked that afternoon.
With new engines, we were pleasantly surprised with the fuel bill after the lengthy running around.
We highly recommend Big Blue Excursions!
