Even though the weather could have been better, our captain John was professional, fun, knowledgeable and showed us a great time. It was worth every cent and we will recommend them unconditionally.

A friend found st john boat rental on line & we decided to do this for our excursion while in st john. From the time we were picked up at the pier to the time we were dropped back off was a blast! The cooler was filled with beverages we asked for & captain Alex took us around some of the islands to explore. We stopped at a beach to check things out & do a little exploring then Alex took us to another island for lunch. He was so accomodating, even turning around so we could check out some sea turtles going by! The cost for this trip was less then what most of our friends paid for their excursions via the cruise ship, & we seemed to have much more fun!!I would do this again in a second & highly recommend this company! Thanks to both John & Alex!

We have spent a week or two on St Thomas every year for the past 15 years. Every year we rent a boat for 1-4 days and explore the V.I.s. This year, 2013, we took a day trip snorkeling and beach hopping in the BVIs. For the first time we used a boat and captain (Alex) from St. John Boat Rental. It was fantastic ! the best we have experienced ! Alex was great ! He is interesting, has a fantastic sense of humor, is an outstanding seaman / captain. He knows the islands, knows how to make rough water smooth, where the best snorkeling, fishing, beaches and got to know us very quickly. The boat that John choose for our group was spot on perfect for our trip. John, the owner, clearly puts his customers first and focused on creating an experience for us that we will fondly remember forever.
These guys are absolutely top notch - the best in the business ! Fair prices, extremely professional and very personable ! Just simply the best !

As this was our first trip to the Virgin Islands we really wanted to be able to explore different areas. After researching, we chose Captain John based on the fantastic reviews and we were not disappointed! This was the best decision we made on the trip (aside from me accepting my fiance's proposal!) This made the trip so different and special. Captain John took us the places we wanted to go as well as made suggestions for some amazing snorkeling spots. The boat was such a smooth ride and we never felt rushed. We spent extra time on Jost Van Dyke and so were unable to go to Virgin Gorda as originally planned, but that was the nice thing about it - we could change our plans as we wanted throughout the day!

We plan on coming back for our wedding and definitely plan on using them again. I highly recommend them for a great day at the islands!
