Captain Judi, Captain Hayden, Sam, and Cam were amazing! From the spots we snorkeled at to their wealth of knowledge.. my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I am sharing this next part because I need you to understand the type of people you will be with when you book with “Snorkel St. John Tour”… during our trip, someone was sick on the boat (with a toddler) and was given the option to stay on for the rest of the trip or to get towed to shore and take a ferry from St. John to St. Thomas. Understandably they chose to get off the boat and get back to land. Captain Hayden and Cam towed this family to shore and hiked them to the nearest taxi. Captain Hayden even carried the sleeping toddler during the hike, as the mother was still not feeling well. *cue the happy tears* they went above and beyond and for that I will forever recommend this team/tour to everyone I know! this little mishap didn’t delay or hinder our trip at all as we were eating lunch, enjoying the open bar, etc. okay now back to the amazing tour… we went to three spots and saw the most beautiful fish, stingrays, turtles, etc. Food was delicious, alcohol was plentiful. Okay so what I am saying is you need to book right now! And enjoy a drink for me!

We booked this snorkeling cruise after taking a sunset cruise with this captain. Judi is an experienced and skilled captain who makes sure that you will see three of the best snorkeling locations in the surrounding islands. The service on board was incredible with muffins and fresh fruit for breakfast and a resort like spread at lunch.

The boat, The Breakaway (be sure to specifically select this boat) has an open configuration that allows you to mingle with other folks if desired. There is also a large shaded cover for those who enjoy a little shade on a sunny day. The equipment is new and in great condition, everything is provided. The sound system is premium and Judi’s play lists made the time cruising from spot to spot even more fun. The open bar had most everything and Quincy was fast with great drinks. The food this man prepared was delicious and included fresh breads, salads, veggies, shrimp and deserts.

Very convenient to board at Sapphire Marina or Margaritaville.

If I could give this snorkeling cruise 6 stars I would.

Of all the boat tours I’ve taken in my life, this was one of the best. Captain Nate with side kicks Mike and Quincy made this trip extremely memorable. They were super knowledgeable about places we were going/passed, and quick on their feet to serve the best painkillers around. With a wide range of beverages and beautiful snorkeling sites, I would 10/10 recommend anyone to their tour.

We had an amazing day with Captain Judy and Mate Mike. We stopped at Lovango Cay where we saw so many fish, then hit Caneel Bay where we swam with turtles and even an Eagle Ray! Our last stop was Honeymoon Bay where we hoped to see some octopus and squid but those guys are elusive. Judy made sure we stopped at locations where we would have calm, clear water and shared some history of the area as well. Mike made sure we were all laughing, fed, and had a drink if we wanted one. All in all, this is a top-notch tour that I'd do again.

Captain Danny Buoy and First Mate Hayden were excellent entertainment and were very accommodating during the entirety of the trip.

At first I was skeptical that the reviews were overwhelmingly positive, as sometimes some things can be too good to be true. But nope, these guys are legit!!! You will have a blast (and Hayden pours a mean Painkiller).

Don’t miss out on an amazing experience — press that “reserve” button now, do it!

I have to say I've booked many a trip during my many stays on St Thomas, private as well as shared trips and this one blew me away. Although we didn't get the catamaran as I'd hoped (it was booked for a private trip) we did go on the power boat. Since we got on at Sapphire Marina we lucked out and got the back big seats, there were 3 of us together, so it was comfy. 5 got picked up at Sapphire, we were served juice for the ride to Margaritaville to pick up the rest. Juices were served to all with muffins and fruit for the ride to Maho in St John for snorkeling. We saw so much during the 1+ hrs that we were moored at Maho. Once they saw how well we did in the water the bar was open, and man was it open! Pain Killers galore LOL...Lunch was a buffet of sandwich fixings, fruit, dessert and Edwardo's famously caught shrimp, have to laugh at that special offering, Edwardo was a hoot! Spence our captain was super cool and both offered lots of info as we were moving along. Being that it was a power boat and where we were sitting we missed most of what was being said but that's ok, we had a BLAST. I highly recommend this trip although if you want to snorkel each spot you might want to forgo much of the drinking. I only managed to snorkel once because the pain killers were just that good!

The hospitality and sailing skills of Captain Judi and Quincy were the highlights! This was an awesome trip. Despite two weeks of unrelenting winds, Captain Judi skillfully navigated to three spots she knew would be calm and would offer fantastic snorkeling. We saw sea turtles munching on sea grasses, squid, starfish, stingrays and a vast array of colored fish. The lunch was fabulous and Quincy’s Pain Killers (St. Thomas official drink) were just what we needed after three hour-long snorkeling sessions. We HIGHLY recommend this trip! Well worth it! We will seek out Captain Judi and Quincy next time.

Nate, Quincy and Mike? (Hope that’s correct)
Great crew! We went out on the Breakaway and had a great day!
Saw turtles at every spot and really enjoyed my day. Lots of fish in every size and color and I was so happy to see the coral growing! There is a coral “nursery” or a coral rehabilitation farm right off the beach and the stag-horn coral is doing well.
The purple sea fans were beautiful especially near the yellow brain coral. I swam above a spotted eagle ray and now I know where it gets it’s name…it has a large head and from above it appears to have a large beak so it does look like an eagle.
This crew is very professional and I appreciated the reminders to swim into the current when entering the water as well as all the other tips. Sometimes you get so excited you forget the things that make it safe and enjoyable.
The food was really good and they didn’t skimp on salad or shrimp either. Beverages happened to be my favorite so I’d say a perfect day on the water!

Wow is the word I would use to describe my experience! From the very start the Captain and Crew were fabulous. Captain Brayson was top notch and gave us one of the funniest safety reviews I've heard in a long time! He interacted with the entire group the whole trip and gave a nice background story to each stop. Spence and Amanda (Amber?) were beyond incredible as well, from mixing up cocktails to serving up a delicious breakfast/lunch to helping everyone get comfy with their snorkel equipment. And of course how could I forget about the snorkeling...I got to swim with sea turtles, saw some sweet fish, some amazing coral reefs and I even spotted a jelly fish after getting back on the boat.
The entire trip was an absolute blast and I am definitely recommending this to any of my friends visiting the island! Thanks so much!

Captain Nate and first mate Hayden were great! They made the day a lot of fun and full of information and stories about the islands. Lunch was delicious including a nice salad, fruit, sandwiches, and shrimp. And you can’t beat the painkillers, their specialty drink. We saw several turtles and a stingray and lots of fish and corals at our first and second snorkel stops. The third stop wasn’t the best snorkeling but Nate really tried his best to get us into the top snorkel spots but they were crowded so he took us to a nice beach instead.
