Not as advertised
Jun 2021
I thought we were going on the 45' Sea Wolf boat, with a nearly full canopy, which is what it shown in all of the pictures of this tour on the website. Instead, we went on a smaller boat with essentially NO SHADE. There were 11 guests and 2 staff on the boat, with very little room to spread out, and not enough real seating for everyone (some sat on coolers). So calling this tour semi-private is not true on this small boat. I told the staff that I thought we were going on a bigger boat, and they just said no. But as we pulled out of Yacht Haven, we saw the Sea Wolf just tied up to the dock, not being used. One woman refused to go on the tour when she saw the small boat, probably because of the lack of shade. So we go on the boat with no shade, getting sea spray because we had to sit up front (limited seating), and then we did NOT go to Turtle Cove/Buck Island. There was no explanation for this, but they just took us to Brewer's Bay, which was fine, but not what is advertised. So if you book this tour, do not do so if you are expecting a larger boat with shade that goes to Buck Island, because there is no guarantee that is what you will get (despite what the website depicts and says). On the plus side, the crew was nice and professional, and we did see 2 sea turtles and a ray.

Thanks for writing. We believe we are very accurate in our advertising. The listing clearly states the charter will take place on our Naval Cat (Sea Wolf) or our brand new Twin Vee power cat (MV Poseidon). On this particular day, Sea Wolf was undergoing its annual inspection so the charter operated on Sea Wolf. We are sorry you did not like this boat and we will be happy to get you on Sea Wolf your next visit. On this particular day, the winds were at 30knots, so we opted to go to a more protected bay for snorkeling. All the guests indicated they had a great time and saw an abundance of sea life. Thank you for your note. We will ensure our Captains explain any change in itinerary.

Great Day Snorkeling!
Had a great day today snorkeling at Buck Island then over to Dinghy’s Beach Bar with Seas The Day Captain Brian and First Mate Nicholas. We had such a good time and learned a lot about St. Thomas and the surrounding area from both Brian and Nicholas. We highly recommend and enjoyed a lot!

Great time overall. Worth the money
May 2021 • Couples
A lot of fun. Got to see a sea turtle and what looked like a squid and lots of fish. The trip is just long enough to spend about 30-40 minutes at turtle cove, and then about an hour to hour and a half at water island. If the trip were any longer it would be too long. Dinghys is fun and the snorkeling is pretty good at water island but not quite as good as Turtle cove in my opinion. Still exceptional all around though.

The captain Don and his mate Alicia were great! Very knowledgeable and fun to talk to.

What a great day we had with Seas The Day ! While snorkeling we seen a ship wreck which I thought was as absolutely amazing to see ! I suggest while snorkeling head towards the shore in shallow waters so get an up close look at the different fish and the beautiful coral. We stopped at a beach that had a small restaurant on the beach. I had the shark bites and the bushwhacker.. DELICIOUS!! Great music on the boat as well.. it was an amazing day! Thank you Captain James :)

Salty Experience

5-11-2021

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.

We had a blast and really enjoyed our time! Captain Don was the best!! We saw plenty of fish, coral reefs, and turtles! Had fun socializing with others on the boat and liked the fact that it was a smaller boat/less people.
