5 star ratingGreat Day Trip with Captain Jug and His Mate We had a family of 8 booked with Captain Jug and Beka (sp?) and it was a great trip. Took us around to spots where they knew snorkeling would be good and what to look for. Very accommodating and their back stories as to how they came to St. John's just added more to our experience! The rum punch helped, too. If you haven't been to St. John's and want a trip that's family friendly, this is the one!

Perfectly catered boat day filled with snorkeling, awesome food, and great memories. From the stocked bar, to the great hospitality, and the knowledge about the islands!
