It was an absolutely fantastic tour! We started out with rain and storm, but captain Mike and his wonderful deckhand Nikki made it such a fun experience cracking jokes, yet making sure we are safe. Sun came out when we got to the little buck island for snorkeling, one of the amazing snorkeling I had. Saw Sea turtle eating a jellyfish, all different kinds of tropical fishes. Nikki was great pointing out interesting things for us to see. Everyone on the boat had a great time, hands down to Nikki working super hard to making sure everyone safe, comfortable and having fun, not to mention she kept pouring me the rum punch after snorkeling 🤣
Thank you Fury Charters!

Booked this trip in St. Thomas since we were looking to snorkel just in the morning and didn't want to pay the over priced cost of the cruise ship tours. Captain Mike met us 100 yards off the ship in the harbor. The Fury was a great sailboat and we had just the right amount of people (19 total). The sailing out to Buck Island took maybe 40 minutes but Mike talked about the island, and what to expect when we reached Buck Island. He kept the conversation going between informative and funny. Nicky the ships mate was just as good. When we reached Buck Island she made sure everyone as ready to go and felt comfortable with their snorkel gear. The gear was great, our kids chose the ships masks, snorkel and fins over their own. It was not like some previous trips where you could tell the gear was abused and not looked after. Buck island was something wonderful. Our main purpose of this trip was to see some sea turtles and boy we were not disappointed. Nicky shows us around the area and then let us swim around one our own. We probably spent a good hour in the water looking at everything. The ride back was just as enjoyable. They provided some snacks as well as water, soda, beer, and rum punch. I would have no issues booking this again.

Captain Mike was a Godsend to us. We went to St. Thomas to memorialize our four siblings that passed within a six month period. They all wanted to be memorialize where my grandfather and twin uncles drowned on their way from Tortola to St. Thomas to deliver babies in the 1960s. My mother and two sisters were memorialized in the same area. No other charters would allow us to memorialize our siblings from their boat. From day one, Mike was emphatic, kind and loving. He is a compassionate person who cares for people. Thanks to Mike, we had a beautiful ceremony and send off of our siblings. Please, if you’re looking to sail around St. Thomas, give Mike an opportunity to entertain you. He’s an amazing person, very humorous and lots fun. You won’t regret getting to know Mike. Mike, thank you for what you did to accommodate our family. We are forever grateful to you for your kindness. We love you!

This was the best sail & snorkle experience we have had and we have done a few of them. The reason among many is the professionalism and care of Captain Mike & Nikki! We were a little nervous about leaving the cruise line network for an excursion but this turned out better than any cruise line activity of the same type. It was our 1st time on a sailboat which was a treat. Safety and boat protocol was delivered clearly and understandable for us sailboat novices. Once underway Captain Mike shared many jokes and very entertaining stories that made me feel we were all in very good hands. Nikki was friendly and moved about the boat with an alacrity that made me marvel like she was a performer! Incredible agility yet very attentive to the passengers. Another nice thing: it was clear Capt Mike and Nikki are a team that have worked together and they performed as one unit very gracefully. When passengers shared a physical issue Captain Mike asked very appropriate questions which showed insight as to how this might affect our activity. For instance my wife and I were older that most and not as water savvy as most. I could see Nikki keeping tabs of us without interfering with our snorkeling. She suggested an area to swim which was fabulous. It was comforting to see Captain Mike watching the whole group. I changed setups 2 times and he was very gracious with my inconvenience to him. I laughed and truly enjoyed his jokes and anecdotal experiences! At the end i felt i was in the presence of a very special individual who was well able to lead our group. He was even kind in taking us back to our cruise ship dock which was out of the way for he & Nikki but saved us a taxi ride across the town which was in the middle of a declared holiday which induced traffic congestion of a high order. Thank you Captain Mike and Nikki for an exhilarating day I'll never forget. I bought a long sleeve shirt despite not planning to buy anything so I could have a remembrance and momentous of them. This is a top flight excursion well worth the time & effort. I want you return to go again!

The excursion with Captain Mike and Nikki was the day before we left St. Thomas, and this trip was a little up and down for a number of reasons. This sail and snorkel more than made up for the not so good times on this vacation. Captain Mike made sailing (on a real dailboat) so much fun, and Nikki took us to the best places to see marine life in the water. I highly recommend that everyone do the sail and snorkel with the two of them. You will not regret it.

This excursion was amazing!! My two teenage daughters (14 & 17) and I had an completely relaxing experience! We got to see the sea turtles and the guide showed off and taught us all about what we were seeing in the reef. It was never awkward and was just an overall FANTASTIC time. 10/10 would recommend!

An amazing experience, Captain Mike and his first mate Nikki were incredible, by the end of the trip you feel like they are friends you've known longer than a few hours. As someone who deals with motion sickness regularly I was prepared for the sail to be a challenge and they both went above and beyond to make sure my sea sickness never got the best of me. Although I am still bummed I never got to try on of Nikki's signature rum punch drinks! Overall the trip was an amazing experience that we would take again in a heartbeat! These two are a well oiled machine when working together and it shows, the knowledge and experience you felt from watching them sail exudes professionalism and skill. Would 12/10 recommend you book a trip with these two!

Let’s just say it is our opinion that reality begins when you leave the dock. And this voyage was so perfect in so many ways. Terrific sailing by Captain Mike and his 1st Mate (a real Mississippi firecracker!) made us feel very welcome, took great care of us and spoiled us greatly. If you are looking for a 1/2 day or full day sailing charter in the USVI, stop now, book this one and thank us later! It was incredible and we will do it again soon! Thank You!

Capt Mike and Nikki were fabulous ambassadors for St Thomas! So kind and accommodating while you are on their excursion. You can tell Mike enjoys his role as Captain, and it’s fun to watch Nikki work the boat as his right hand with such ease. The boat is beautiful, Buck Island is amazing, the sea life is plentiful, and their knowledge of the island and waters is impressive!

Fury Charters was a the best charter we took while visiting Saint Thomas.

Mike’s stories and history of the island was perfect and informative. Nikki’s experience on the boat and in the water was outstanding. She was able to bring us to all the cool spots to see the underwater life.

Their service while was outstanding for the entire trip. I had to buy fury crew shirt after that experience. I’m. It one to buy touristy stuff either ;)

I highly recommend take a half day or full day with them.
