Captain Ivan and First Mate Becca are the best! This company offers top notch service and the best charter day ever. They are so conscientious of everyone's needs and so courteous. We were on the Juggernaut which is beautiful and well maintained.(and it has a bathroom!) The snorkel spots they took us to were lovely and lunch at Lime Out went flawlessly. They offered interesting tidbits about the island and it's history.
If you are looking for a family friendly charter you can't go wrong with this company. We have used two other companies in the past and this one will be our go to in the future! Thank you for the many memories and a fabulous day!

5 star ratingBest Excursion I’ve Ever Booked In summary, wow! I chartered the coqui for me and my mom to circumnavigate St John, and I cannot recommend this enough. To start, Ivan, our captain, was very knowledgeable and personable and provided great recommendations for stops along the island. Additionally he makes a mean painkiller that rivaled some of the best we had in the BVI and USVI. Also, we are pretty sure Ivan paid the wild animals to come out in full force this day haha.

Coqui is amazing. Very spacious and comfortable seating. Even in some of the waters that were more rough, we were very comfortable and because this is a powered catamaran style boat, even the waves aren’t that bad. Getting on and off the boat was very easy and if we ever needed help, Ivan was ready to assist. Additionally, plenty of shade, but we did not want it.

The tour, wow. On this trip, we made 5+ stops around the island. Each very different and amazing. The highlights:

Maho Bay: We went for turtles, which we saw, but we also saw a stingray and wait for it . 2 wild dolphins that wanted to play and interact with us. Wow! This made my mom’s entire trip.

Round Bay: amazing bay for swimming and snorkeling around the reef. Additionally , great place for a drink in the water

Lime out: my mom thought the floating taco bar was going to be overrated, but it wasn’t. They also bought lunch for Ivan which is a nice touch. We ordered the Danger cocktails (MUST ORDER) and all their tacos were delicious. My mom left and thought it was worth the hype. Just a cool place to hang out.

Salt Pond Beach: Tons of turtles and a shark skimming the water. Beautiful bay for swimming or relaxing

Truly an amazing full day charter. Absolutely one of the best things I’ve ever done, and I will recommend this to everyone I know and go again next time I’m in the area.

5 star ratingBest day with the Captain Jug Charters team! We had the best day with Captain Jug and Rebecca! I can’t recommend booking with this team enough. We did a half day trip and saw amazing sights snorkeling and boating. The team was insightful, helpful, and super fun. We felt so safe on board and in the water and were so thankful for their recommendations regarding the itinerary. We stopped at Pizza Pi for lunch and it was incredible. Our only regret is not booking a full day and we hope to return and book with them again soon!
