Owner description: The Most Affordable Charters on St John! Two Boats with Several Options! 26 ft World Cat or 21ft Zodiac. Up for an adventure? Try our new 21ft Zodiac; it's fast & fun and great for affordable Half Day Charters or our Jost only trip. Charter our 26ft Worldcat and go Island hopping, Snorkeling or to a remote beach to just relax in the warm waters of the Caribbean. Why not spend your vacation exploring the US and British Virgin Islands on a private captained boat charter. We enjoy having kids on board and have added children's snorkel gear to our fine selection of equipment. Bring the kids with you and we'll provide some beach toys for them to play with.

Unbelievable boating experience with Copeland Boat Charters. We have a family of 4 with 2 pre-teen boys, and spent the entire day cruising St. John and BVI. Captain Kevin was extremely knowledgable of the local spots, both popular and those off the beaten path. Great snorkeling, sight seeing, lunch, island hopping, anything we wanted to do. He also made us feel very safe at all times. HIGHLY recommended booking with Copeland!

If you ever wondered if it is really worth the expense of a private charter the answer is YES - at least if it is Copeland Boat Charters and Kevin is your captain. My partner and I spent the day exploring the islands, going where we wanted to go, and experiencing what we wanted to experience. It really is a custom experience because Kevin will plan the day as you ask and ensure it meets your expectations. Snorkeling, swimming to a tiny uninhabited island, Foxy's Tabu and of course Soggy Dollar. Kevin is a good and safe captain, you won't regret it. We look forward to another adventure with Kevin in 2014.

We can not recommend Copeland Boat Charters enough! On our first trip to St. John (5/11), we used Copeland after getting a great recommendation from my in-laws. We had such an amazing day that when we were planning our honeymoon, we knew we had to spend another day out on the Beer Cooler with Captain Kevin. Both times we have had an amazing day! Between snorkeling, swimming, eating, and enjoying the unique bars on the BVIs, the day is jam packed with great experiences. On our 2nd trip we were ready to do the same trip we had the previous year (because we had such an awesome time!)- snorkeling, drinks at Willy T's on Norman Island, lunch at Foxy's, and then the soggy dollar- but Kevin took us to a whole different set of great spots- 2 different spots to snorkle (at different places but I can't remember the names!), lunch at Taboo's, and then Ivan's. Even just cruising on the boat is great fun. Each trip Kevin made numerous suggestions and then allowed us to decide where we wanted to go. Both Kevin and Robin are very knowledgeable, organized, and great to be around. We can not recommend them enough! In fact my brother and sister-in-law just got back from their honeymoon on St. John and can't stop talking about their day out with Kevin. Taking a trip with Copeland Boat Charters is sure to be the highlight of your vacation.

Our family had a fabulous day spending time on the boat and snorkeling. He will take you where you choose or let him surprise you. He has good knowledge of the area and all the great spots. Very friendly. Worth a full or half day! I hope you have as much fun as we did .

We chartered with Copeland and it was well worth it. Kevin was a fantastic Captain. He brought us to excellent snorkeling locations and gave us a great tour of the island. My wife and I have chartered before with other companies and Kevin was a good as they get, knowledgable, safe, funny, easy going and personable. Robin made it easy to set up and organize and met us at the dock to make sure we were ready to go. The cost of our half day adventure was extremely reasonable and I would recommend Copeland to anyone that wants a great tour of the island with a great captain!! We will book again next time on the island.
