Why We Are A Different Boat Trip

    • Private and open Party Excursions
    • If you want the ship to yourself or perhaps with a loved one, you can charter our vessel privately for as little as $400.  If you want to sail and snorkel with us and are open to meeting new friends you can sign up for our open charters for as little as $85 per person.   Our open charters we prefer to keep small, normally around 6 people.

 

    • Great Prices & Great Value Vacation
        You won’t have to call or email us for our boat trip prices (see our “Tour Info” page) we proudly post our excursion prices on our website.

 

    • Pristine snorkeling locations
        We don’t want to snorkel the Caribbean with 500 of our best friends! Most of our snorkeling stops we have to ourselves. This means excursions to vibrant, secluded Caribbean reefs around St John and St Thomas, teeming with every kind of life but human…

 

    • A cut above the day-sail fare
        YOU WILL NOT FIND A DAY SAIL BOAT TRIP WITH BETTER FARE IN THE VIRGIN ISLANDS. With us you have choices. We grill your choice of thick pork chop [the favorite], or chicken to order (see our “What’s Cookin’” page). Yum!
    • No clock watchers here!
        We’re happy to work with cruise ship and other schedules. Aside from that, we’re usually the last boat back to the dock in either St Thomas or St John. We love to sail the Virgin Islands!

Substantial open bar

      1. Not just the usual rum punch and beer. Virgin Island Favorites – Painkiller, Rum Punch, Red and White Wine, 4 different Beers, 5 Sodas and tonic, Juice and Water.
    • Fantastic Music in The Heart of the Caribbean
        We love music! The stereo is always playing relaxing music of varied genre. We sail daily for a full day, half day, romantic sunset sail and/or our exclusive evening entertainment sails and excursions.

*  We do it all!

For those interested in doing a bit of fishing we can do a bit of that too.  We’re not talking serious sportfishing.                           However if you have a young one on the boat whose day would be complete with landing a few fish, we can                                    do that too!  We can troll a line behind the boat while sailing and while at a mooring, if not in a nature reserve,                             we can launch the dinghy and pull up a few small reef fish such as squirrel fish, bar jack and yellowtail                                   snapper.  On the troll we have caught king mackerel, barracuda, trevally, crevalle jack and more!  We do                                      practice catch and release fishing on the vessel.  Besides being great for the environment it is also mandatory as                          the safest local fish to eat is caught in the deep open waters of the north and south drop and consuming fish                                from local reef waters is not advisable due to the exotic flora and fauna that build to high levels in local reef fish.

Exploring the rugged, scenic islands is also a possibility.  Many passenger like to explore and relaxe on the                           isolated beaches and islands that we pass by while on sail.  We can take you places few have been and you can enjoy                 a peaceful tranquility with mother nature in one of her prized and prime locations.
