Captain John and Captain Lindsey are courteous, humorous and fun! You get on the boats out of Sapphire Marina, a beautiful setting and conveniently... More

I wanted to see it all and he made it happen. The Baths, the Caves, Willie Ts, and Jost Van Dyke!! This experience was without a doubt... More

My husband and I decided to do a private charter for just the two of us. What a great day! We hit all the hotspots and some quiet places to snorkel. At the end of our trip he even pulled right up on the beach and dropped us off at our hotel Margaritaville! You will not be disappointed!

An absolute blast! We did a day trip from St. Thomas to Jos Van Dyke! John and Captain Lindsey were first class! Passionate about their jobs and full of local knowledge of the area! I could not recommend St. Thomas Boat Rental any more, Its a must do if you are on st. Thomas!

Nat was our captain was safe and he was awesome! This is our second time renting this boat, Innovation 1. We had a great day going to the Baths in the BVI, lunch at the Beach Club on Cooper island and snorkeling. Bring the sunscreen, but there is plenty of shade. One recommendation: don't bring meat or veggies/fruit if you... More

We could not recommend John, Lindsey & the St. Thomas Boat Rental team more highly. They were a dream to work with in planning our trip and even better to sail with on the day of. Their personalities, experience, knowledge and senses of humor made our tour of the BVI in to memories that will last a lifetime. We're already... More

We had a fabulous day touring around the various bays on St. Thomas and St. John with Captain (and owner) John! Booking was super easy as was finding his dock with brand spanking new power catamaran "El Toro II." John was very knowledgeable on the area and the best places to snorkel away from the crowds. He was completely flexible... More

We had a great experience! We started the day a little late due to a miscommunication by email. John was super helpful sending a captain down asap and we got on our way. Brandon - our captain was helpful and knowledgeable. We first went to Host Van Dyke, then Sandy Caye, the Willy Ts for lunch and finished the day... More

Thank you so much for your kind words and your review. Sorry to hear about an unexpected fee and miscommunication as we normally don't take the reservation until we are absolutely sure that you have all of the details and proper documents to travel to the BVI. I have noticed that the reservation was set up by another member in... More

Captain Lindsey was literally the best captain ever!! We had the best day and couldn't have asked for anything more. The owner John was so accommodating and answered my 1,000 email questions very promptly. Highly recommended!!!
