What a truly amazing way to start the vacation week off. The weather was a little cloudy with some sunshine. Just enough sun to make the colors of the world pop. Captain Greg and First Mate Alicia were our leaders. Captain Greg did his thing but Alicia really stole the show with her personality and her pure excitement just being able to tell us everything we wanted to know about the island. You could tell she really enjoys her job. Pulled off the dock with 3 coolers full of drinks provided by the Charter is a win. Snorkeling gear provided for all 9 us as well. Did a quick tour of St. John on the way from St. Thomas. Was able to stop at 3 different area to snorkel, saw sea turtles, stingrays, star fish and lots and lots of coral and underwater sea life. I think the coolest thing was the school of fish that swam right in front of me, felt like 75 fish or more. 1:30pm hit and our reservation for Lovango was ready. Got off the snorkeling boat, hopped on a dinghies and lunch destination arrival. Eating lunch there was absolutely breath taking. Picture perfect some might to call it. The food wasn’t overpriced as expected but highly disappointed they were out of oyster upon arrival. Guacamole, mussels and a banana painkiller plus tip a total of $90 for one person. The reservation alone was $40. I truly feel the lunch experience is unnecessary and cut the snorkeling time short. Back on the boat for the trip back to St. Thomas. The views are absolutely stunning. Breath taking. Jaw dropping. The colors are indescribable. If snorkeling isn’t your thing or nervous about it, just go. Just do it. From St. Louis Missouri and proud.

It was a great experience. We went to two beautiful spots, saw a turtle, a coral, a ray and a lot of fish. The water colors were beautiful even though it had been raining. The group size is perfect and the guides were nice, fun and knowledgeable. I would improve the following things: we waited at the beginning more than 20 minutes. This felt like wasted time. We were waiting for some people that had booked the wrong day. I think they should have a maximum wait time and if you’re late, you miss it. Because of this, we did not go to Honeymoon beach which we were the most excited for. Also, the guide should have told people that the area to see most fish is around the corals. We were the only ones who swim towards the corals and saw a lot more fish than the others who stayed around the boat. The corals were not far from the boat. If I was the guide I would also tell people respect the turtles. People were surrounding and smothering the poor turtle and I don’t think that’s good for wild life. You should watch animals from a distance. They were getting too close to the animal.
The overall experience was great and we will repeat it and recommend it to anybody coming to St Thomas.

Thank you for your feedback. This was a very thoughtful review and it is appreciated. We agree, waiting for late guests is not fair to guests that were on-time. Based on your feedback and others, we are now going to instruct all Captains to depart on time. This will probably result in negative reviews from individuals whom miss the trip, but it is the right thing to do. We also agree on your comments about marine wildlife. We must all respect the marine wildlife. This is great advice to our guests and I believe we can all do a better job of educating guests - we will be passing that feedback along to our Captains and Crew as well. Thank you again for this great feedback.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Buck Island and Honeymoon Beach with Hope. She was very attentive to our requests, provided everything we needed, and was quite entertaining. Highly recommend! Additionally, we really enjoyed being part of a small group instead of a boat with 40 or 50 people on it.

Yes! We couldn't agree more; so much more enjoyable to be on a boat with a handful of people were the day can be personalized for you. Thank you for choosing us; we truly have the best crews on island and some of the best guests onboard. We hope to Sea you again the next time you are here!

Boat showed up 45 mins late, sat at the dock for around 30 minutes till departed with one crew member, only snorkeled 15 mins at Buck Island and then went to Honeymoon Beach, snorkeled roughly 30 mins and returned to dock 30 mins early. Gate at the dock was closed made everyone shimmy five feet hanging onto fence to swing around to where no fence was.

Have called and left three voice messages over four days no returned calls.

Save money and time, go to expedition outfitters on St John rent snorkel gear for 7 dollars and snorkel Maho Bay with turtles and sting rays.

We must fall on the Pirate sword on this one. This was not the experience that our 500+ FIVE STAR reviews shows is usual with our charters. On this particular charter, our Captain had an illness and we had 30 minutes to replace them. One of our GREAT Captains volunteered to do the charter, however, they had not done this particular tour before - they usually do only private charters. Therefore, they were late picking the guests up. And, they did drop the guests off at the wrong dock; about 50 feet from the dock that was open. We regret this. What did we Learn? Tour operators like us never want to cancel a charter. But, sometimes there are mechanical or challenges like illness that happens - we all know things happen that are unavoidable. When these happen, we try our best to make sure a charter is not cancelled. However, what we have learned is that it is probably better to cancel and reschedule than to operate a charter that might not be the FIVE STAR experience our guest are use too. Again, we are sorry. We have talked to this guest and made amends. They also admitted, which we appreciate, that they never left any voice messages and the first time they communicated with us was after posting the review. We appreciate their honesty since we are fanatical about returning all calls. Again, our regrets on this experience.

My husband and I really enjoyed this excursion. We love the small group size and is the main reason I chose this particular tour. We took the morning trip and stopped in three places to snorkel. This was our first time ever snorkeling but didn't take us long to get the hang of it and very quickly we saw several sea turtles, sting rays and many schools of beautiful fish. The second location had a sunken ship which was so cool to see and seemed surreal. Third stop was Honeymoon Beach on Water Island where we swam ashore, some of us snorkeled, some relaxed on the beach and some went to get a drink from the bar. The two person crew was fun and attentive, serving rum punch and other drinks and keeping the music coming (and asking if the music choice was ok, or if we would like something else). If I get the chance to return to St Thomas will most definitely do this again.

Captain Hope was friendly and welcoming when she met us at the dock. She acquainted us with the boat (MV Poseidon) and sought our input and interests on what we wanted to do for the day. She offered her suggestions and took us to some great areas to snorkle and sight-see. She went above and beyond by actually swimming some of our equipment from the boat to the beach and back! The wind and waves were a little intense for our 7 yr old on the way back, and Capt Hope stopped and talked to her to calm her down. It worked and our daughter (us too) loved her for it. We will definitely look to Seas the Day for any future boating trips.

This was the highlight of our trip. We did the 1/2 day “swim with the turtles” and it was fantastic. True to their word, the crew knew exactly where the turtles were and we saw 3 of them! Seeing a giant sea turtle swimming right towards you is a little unnerving, but awesome! They took us to Brewers Bay which is very secluded, and Honeymoon Beach on Water Island, and we snorkeled about an hour at each place, plus there is a really cool beach bar on Water Island called Dinghy’s that is a can’t miss destination. The boat was very nice, clean, and fast compared to similar excursions. Loved it! Side note - we did the afternoon cruise at 2:00pm which I highly recommend, especially if you think you might have a few too many rum punch drinks the night before!

Captain Pogan and Vall-e were an amazing team! I had two first timers in my group and they were thoroughly impressed by the trip. We saw several turtles, a sting Ray, sea urchins, fish, and even a big hermit crab! My kiddo was thoroughly entertained when Vall-e played “We Are The Chanpions” after I swam from Honeymoon Beach to the boat while holding a to go box above my head lol
I was able to fulfill my dream of swimming with sea turtles, so I was completely overjoyed. Thank you again for a wonderful time! We talked about our experience all the way back to our resort. I will definitely do this again next time I’m in St. Thomas!

My wife and I did this tour when we recently went to St. Thomas for our honeymoon, and it was great! Bryan was our captain, he was a great guide and was hilarious! He interacted well with all of the guests, and took some fun photos of us.

Our boat played some fun music, and cold drinks were available as we cruised to Turtle Cove near Buck Island. Once we got there we saw some amazing fish and sea turtles while we were snorkeling.

Then we headed over to a beach bar at Honeymoon Beach on Water Island that had great fish tacos, and we washed the down with some topical drinks!

I highly recommend this excursion if you are visiting St. Thomas!

We liked the snorkeling locations, however the trip was specifically titled that it included a stop at Honeymoon Beach, where we were supposed to be able to get lunch. After the two snorkeling stops, we were taken on a "tour" of areas surrounding the harbors then we were taken back to the dock and the trip was over. We were not given a reason for skipping Honeymoon Beach until the question was asked of the captain, to which he said "we snorkeled too long and ran out of time." We were not given timelines for snorkeling time, nor were we given the option to cut snorkeling short so we could go to Honeymoon Beach. This was booked for our anniversary, and we were disappointed in the lack of communication by the captain to the guests that resulted in our scheduled stops being modified.
Mike was a new member of the crew, and he was great.

Good morning. Thank you for this note. We regret that this happened. The Captain and Crew told us that the majority of the guests wanted to stay and do two snorkeling stops at Buck Islands and skip Honeymoon. However, we have re-trained the Captains and Crew so they understand they need to stick to the published itinerary. We do recognize that even if the majority of individuals want to do something different, ALL guests paid for the set itinerary and we need to stick to this. Thank you again for informing us.
