    It’s an incredible experience but would definitely recommend: stretching, plenty of water, good walking shoes. You drive to Botany Bay and park on side of the road. You have to walk through the gate as no vehicles are allowed on property. It’s a long walk!! The way down is not as bad as way back up!! The views are worth the walk. Me and my wife are celebrating our 9th anniversary and she had this on her bucket list so here we are walking 7000 miles up hill on the way back. It’s very difficult especially for folks not use to hiking. The views are beautiful so it’s worth it. Also, it’s very private as we were the only a ones at mermaids chair. I only have 4 instead of 5 because of the hike, but the views are 10 out of 5. The security guard at the gate was nice and friendly.

    This is a great site to dive lots of big boulders to swim around. We saw a beautiful nurse shark swimming out through a cave and circle this a couple of times. Which was very cool. So a couple stingrays on the bottom, lobsters and many tropical fish. We spoke to a few local drivers and they said this is their favorite site on St Thomas. We will be back to dive again!

    We dove for days with Aqua Marine - cannot say enough about the owners and crew - such amazing people. They made the trip so special. Diving in St. Thomas is amazing the water is crystal clear and so much to see. The Staff, David, Steve, Audrey, Billy, Rick and Teddy along with Tommy and Mechelle just provided excellent customer service - arriving at the boats - gear was set up, tanks changed between dives and broken down at the end of the dive.

    Professionalism and safety are their first priority. They easily adapted to differing diving levels of their guests, and made sure everyone had the best time. So much great information provided above the water about the area, the dive sites and what we might possibly see.

    We also had a few dogs on the boat as well - loved coming back and getting a warm tail wag from Duke and Booza…. Great times.

    We will be back

    A highlight of my vacation was this boat excursion. The 2 employees engaged each person on board repeatedly to make sure we were happy. They pointed out where the best snorkeling was and what you might see as well as points of interest. We had unlimited drinks, pizza, fruit plate and even a tasty chocolate chip cookie. This was the best excursion I’ve ever been on. Part of the time we sailed with no engines. It was so peaceful and quiet. You could sit in the sun on the top level or shaded from the sun on the main level. Bathrooms below deck. We even saw a beautiful rainbow. Don’t miss out this wonderful experience. The owners are local. They give back to the local community by contributing to beach cleanup and charities etc. I try to support local businesses when I can.

    We had an excellent time on our 6 hour private tour, 2 people. Our captain, Jordan, was friendly,knowledgeable , entertaining, and took safety very seriously. The charter company was easy to work with. Because of an approaching tropical storm, they contacted us to move up the excursion by a day. We were very pleased with our experience and would use over the Line Boat Charters again, and we would request Captain Jordan.

    Captain Owen is fantastic - great to learn the fun facts but also to have loads of laughs. We felt like he was one of us immediately. Ran a tight shop but was also very easy going. Our trip to St John’s was even better with that boat trip included!

    Everything was awesome. The staff are very friendly and hospitable. The property is well cared for. There are clean bathrooms onsite and the gear looks well cared for. They guide you every step of the way. There’s lots of beautiful scenery throughout the canopy trail. A total of 6 lines and 2 bridges. The views are amazing. The staff make sure you are safe every step of the way. The adventure comes with some anxiety but the guides are so reassuring and encouraging that you just go for it. My husband and I are over 50 and we both did everything the younger people did and we had a lot of fun. You won’t regret this experience. Sharon and Rich were our guides. Great team work and super nice people clearly invested in their guests having a fun and safe time. Grateful to both of them for looking out for us and making it one of the best experiences we’ve had oj this trip.

    I booked a snorkel adventure as a gift to my husband on our honeymoon and this was my first experience snorkeling. Our guide Perry was very patient with me and was an amazing teacher! He made my experience very comfortable and I can now say I cannot wait to do it again! The reefs and beaches he took us to were so beautiful and he always pointed out sea life to us that we may have otherwise missed! Not only that, but he took some really amazing underwater pictures of my husband and I together while snorkeling and the sea life itself such as turtles, an octopus, starfish, etc. When the tour was over he had a lot of good recommendations for good restaurants, beaches, and other things to do while on the island. He helped to make our honeymoon memorable and we'll never forget the hospitality he gave us! Highly recommended experience!

    My wife and I spent the day sailing aboard the sweet pea and absolutely enjoyed the day! It was more like going with friends instead of some cheesy carnival ride which ya get on take ur ride, pay em, and ur done! We definitely would recommend spending the money and take a personal trip with these guys! Had a blast!

    Sailing with an experienced Captain who was sailing before he drives a motor vehicle was an absolute pleasure. He’s extremely knowledgeable about the area. He knows the best spots, particularly if you would enjoy snorkeling. Captain Ryan and his crew member where a friendly, professional, and an excellent team. If you just want to relax and take in tranquil beauty that words couldn’t come close to expressing what you're experiencing, a day Sailing with Liberty will fulfill what might seem surreal. It was the time of our lives, again. We’ll absolutely be back for the time of our lives again.

    The best catamaran in the Caribbean. We booked with Beach Charters VI during our stay over Labor Day. The weather was a bit rainy and they moved us to the perfect day. The catamaran is top notch. The guides / owners were amazing people with excellent customer service. They knew all the best spots to snorkel, paddle board, and hang out on the beach. They were gracious enough to bribe to stay out for some extra time after a proposal that happened on the catamaran for my niece. The food was amazing as well.
    Word of advice. Skip the group boats with 40+ people and pay a little more to have your own for the day. It was well worth more than the price and super reasonable.
    We will for sure be back!

    If you’re thinking of taking a boat cruise out of St. Thomas, do yourself a favor and book with Adventures of Saltwater Taffy. To start, Rosie is the most amazing cook we’ve experienced in a LONG time. She made better meals than we’ve had at most restaurants by far, hands down. Brad runs a great ship, is incredibly personable and knowledgeable. Plus, he’s one heck of a conch shell player. He and Rosie personally took us snorkeling and showed us things we’d never have found on our own. The entire family made my wife and I feel welcome in their home and aboard their ship, and our time spent with them was by far the best of our whole trip. And finally, this is a family-owned operation, so what you spend goes to support an amazing family who work as hard as they play.

    We chartered the 50" Sea Ray, and there were 8 of us. The trip was unbelievably awesome! We all had such a great experience and wonderful time. My family created some memories of a lifetime, for sure. Jesse and Alicia were a great combo - totally professional, friendly, informative, conversational - just all around fun to be with. The boat was clean and comfortable, the snacks were great, and my son in law very much appreciated Alicia's bartending skills! LOL!

    I just thought to let you know expectations were exceeded!. We will be recommending Sonic to anyone we know who comes to St. Thomas!
