Hands down the best boat and crew to enjoy the waters off STJ. We've been travelling to the St John for years and gone on many other boats, but Sadie Sea is the most fun, comfortable, and affordable charter boat Cruz Bay has to offer. Owners and operators CPT Tom and Amy were the highlight of our trip. We were a little hesitant to bring along our 2 year old son, but CPT Tom assured us we would have a blast. We shared the boat with some couples from Caneel Bay, and we stopped four times at great snorkeling spots (Congo, Lovango, and two others). CPT Tom even dropped the other guests off at Caneel Bay using the dingy, saving them a cab ride from Cruz Bay back to the resort. Our son had great time as we floated in the calm waters on some noodles. They even let him drive the boat. CPT Tom and Amy were great hosts, sharing stories and history of St John. They have everything you need on board, to include a cooler of ice cold beer. We even ran into CPT Tom & Amy at the Barefoot Cowboy Lounge (another highly reccomended spot) the next day and they made us feel right at home. We will definatley go out on Sadie Sea again, and can't wait to get back to STJ. Our son keeps asking about Tom, Amy, and the Sadie Sea.

I had an awesome adventure! I call it the sunset Cruz but I found out that the locals call it the booze Cruz.(bring your own booze) I had so much fun! Captain Tom was amazing. He showed us different islands and had a lot of information about them. The captain took us to a place called the mermaids chair to snorkel, Yes! the rocks did look like a chair. Forgot to mention, diner is included at The bare foot cowboy lounge which is right by the marina. Food was great and the Cruz was only 30.00 per person! Definitely will be taking this Cruz again!

Sadie Sea is hands down the best charter in the Virgin Islands! Captained by Tom Larson, a Coast Guard retiree, Sadie Sea is clean, comfortable, safe, and FUN!! We rode aboard the Sadie Sea in November and it was the highlight of our trip! After a short safety brief we headed out with Captain Tom driving from the upper deck pointing out the sights while we all caught some extra sun! If you are on St John and looking for a great time with highly experienced people, Sadie Sea is the boat for you!

We had a great home down to reef bay stopping at the petroglyphs and sugar mill ruins. Sadie Charters picked us up at the beach and took us on a great snorkel and cruise with a good lunch. Very hospitable and fun. A great day.

Just got back from St John and a great 1/2 day snorkel trip with Sadie Sea! Capt Tom did a super
job and was a totally relaxing day. Beautiful snorkel spots, and made four stops. Very reasonable
if you are looking for a great Snorkel trip , try Sadie Sea. You won't go wrong.
