Attraction details
Owner description: Swim up and have a cocktail or an ice cold beer from St. John Brewery on Coral Bay's Floating Bar- Angels Rest. Snorkel, or soak up the tropical sun on the top deck, or if you prefer, lounge on the daybeds. Or maybe you prefer to sit at the glass dining table with an open floor below. We also have our liquor licenses so if you see us anchored at Ms. Vie's or Hanson beach swim out for a cocktail and some fun! We provide dingy pick ups. We also do private charters 1/2 day, full day or sunset cruises.

“This is genius!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

I had heard of this and was hoping he would show up. When I unknowingly asked Vie about it, she lied to me and told me she didn't know anything about it. I realized right then that something was up, and that we were indeed in the right spot. About an hour after arriving, here comes Captain Peter around the bend. Yeah! We all swam up and had a great time. Really fun. What a great retirement plan Peter has. He lives on his self-made open air houseboat, parked appropriately (not as the bad review stated) and properly licensed. Rum punch, painkillers or beer for $5. Because of him we all got to know each other and socialize. Something that without his idea was not likely to happen. He was very gracious and made sure to send us to Vie's for something to eat. Great concept Captain Peter. Thank you! You made our day!

“We had a fantastic time on Captain Pete's Bar Boat!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

We were spending a week on Saint John and had heard that we should visit Captain Pete's Bar Boat. Wow, was that good advice! After a day of enjoying Vie's beach and some amazing snorkeling, the boat pulled up at just the right time for some adult refreshments. We swam out to the boat and met the friendly and animated Capt. Pete. We enjoyed hearing about his stories of the island and his dream come true: He built his boat from his own hands and lives his dream every day! We met some wonderful people on the upper deck and soaked in the beautiful scenery of mountain and ocean. It is one of our fondest memories of our trip. The swim back to shore with our group after a few of Captains specials was pretty entertaining!!!

“Moved down the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

Peter has moved this really great houseboat down the road to a new beach. Go past Vies, you will see a sign on the right side. This new facility has kayaks, sail boats and soon paddle boards. The facility is owned by two women who just recently proved they own the land that was being used as a private campground.

Peter works very hard to make sure the boat is safe and fun.

“Cooler than the other side of the pillow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

This was a highlight of our trip. Try the moonshine! Peter is cooler than Freddy Jackson sipping a milkshake in a snowstorm. Make sure to ask him about the rare sand dollar he found. Don't forget to tip!

“Sunset Delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

Captain Peter and The Angels Rest is a must do if you are staying on St John, whether you swim to it while it is moored in Hansen Bay or charter for a sunset cruise as we did. Peter is not only a wealth of knowledge of the area he is also a great guy! We had such a wonderful time listening to music laughing and enjoying his "rum punch" along with taking in the beautiful aura that surrounded us. Angels Rest is a work of art that Peter himself designed that makes you feel like your in in a quaint little cabin on the ocean.
cannot wait to see you again Peter thank you for a great time.
