We chartered a boat with Margie and Captain Sharp to visit a few areas for some 360 photographic excursions. They were wonderful and able to accommodate our requests. It was a beautiful day on the sea. We happened to pass by as the BVI Spring Regatta was in session, got to see the Baths in Virgin Gorda from land and sea and met some wonderful folks as we lunched on Norman Island. We finished the day snorkeling around The Indians with Captain Sharp leading us and showing us some of the highlights. He's like a fish in the water. Thanks for a memorable day!

Thanks for coming out! I still can't believe that we managed to miss the rain all day long! I hope the 360 and sphere images turn out awesome! Looking forward to seeing your virtual tours of the area.

Fantastic day on the water with Sharp. Very experienced, competent, and professional. Will likely do another trip with Big Blue next year.

Thank you to Captain Sharp Kemp for his expert skills in navigating and fishing the great waters of the Caribbean. We caught terrific fish on both half days. The King Mackerel was over 60 lbs, caught just off shore with a single hook on a spinning rod and reel. The fish was quickly released to continue his glorious life. We plan to repeat this event when we return to St. John.

Thank you for the great review, Betsy! Sharp loved going fishing with y'all and still can't believe the size of the King Mackerel! What a catch. Looking forward to seeing y'all on your next trip down!

Sharp was a great captain/tour guide, and we were in total control of our experience. Dealing with Big Blue was great - they made everything easy, and they are 100% professional.

My husband and I went with a few friends on an overnight excursion from St. John to Anagada. Captain Sharp was the best navigator and took us to some great swell over on Anagada. His wife, also a captain, was so helpful getting our customs info very quickly processed through from USVI to BVI. They organized a great spot to stay for everyone. We saw lots of amazing sea life- whales, octopus, turtles, and even a whale shark! Really felt very safe with these locals who knew exactly where to go! I’d go ahead and say this was the best trip ever! Thanks Captains! Will definitely book again and highly recommend.
