“This Made our vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2010

We had a great time with Captain Wilson back on July 14, 2010. We were staying at the Ritz in St. Thomas and wanted to explore the BVI's for a day. We found Big Blue Excursions from Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Captain Wilson picked us up right at the hotel. I was traveling with my husband and my two kids ages 20 and 18. It was a perfect day. We did some snorkeling and went to the BVI's for the rest of the day. We stopped at Foxys for lunch. Captain Wilson is very knowledgeable about all of the islands . The boat is very smooth and roomy. This was so much better than taking a tour with a large group of people because you could basically plan your own agenda. This excursion made our trip to the Virgin Islands. I would highly recommend it.

“FUN, FUN, FUN!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2010

What a fabulous time the four of us had with Captain Wilson and Big Blue! We booked a full day, and from the moment we stepped aboard, the fun began. It's great being able to have an excursion tailored especially for you, and we would most definitely sign up for another trip with Captain Wilson. He has great knowledge of the area, the boat is comfortable, and we felt entirely safe. Don't hesitate to put this on the top of your "to do" list while in the area.

“Amazing time with Capt. Wilson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2010

Big Blue Excursions and Capt Wilson are a MUST HAVE in St Thomas. He was such an experienced captain who knew all there is to know about the islands and made sure my family experienced all of the many wonders of the Virgin Islands....very accommodating. The boat was a blast and snacks now need a refill after our day long trip to everywhere :)

My children adored him and now call him Uncle Wilson. We will definitely visit him again on our next adventure to St Thomas.

“Perfect day.”

Just finished an incredible day with Captain Bradley. If you are coming to St. John's this trip is a must do. We snorkeled on beautiful reefs, had a great afternoon on jost van dyke, and enjoyed the expert knowledge of the area that Bradley had to offer.

“Fantastic Day!”

Our family went out for a full day with Captain Wilson. Everyone had a great time cruising around the islands, snorkeling & having lunch in BVI. The boat is very clean and comfortable, and Captain Wilson did a great job with everything! We highly recommend this fun day!
