Fantastic Experience. Do it!
Apr 2021 • Friends
10000% a must. Seriously if you're wondering if this is worth the money, stop it. Pay the money. You won't regret it at all. Full day.

Val was our guide. She was super knowledgeable and helpful in deciding what to explore, and had all the gear we needed to snorkel. I had done some research (highly recommend reading through their website, you'll learn a lot) but she improved on those plans.

Due to Covid, the BVI weren't an option, so we explored all the nooks and crannies of St John. We circled the island clockwise, starting with some snorkeling with turtles, hugging up along the West shore up to the north shore seeing some incredible beaches, mansions, and learning about the history of the island. After checking out the amazing views (you can see Jost Van Dyke and Tortola from across the channel on the north of St John) went into Coral Bay (East Side) for some Limeout Tacos (Rum BBQ Pork and Pesto Shrimp were unreal), then went along the south side of the island for some vistas and more snorkeling along the cliffs (found more turtles and a cave 20 feet below the water)

She took us by Little St James (Epstein Didn't Kill Himself) and Greater St James. Just off GSJ we were able to snorkel a wreck (more turtles and a ray), before heading back home.

Again, Val was a great guide. We felt a 20% tip was appropriate, although she never once indicated that tips were expected. We only had 4 people, but the boat could easily fit 8 comfortably (idk if Covid allows that tho). You will not regret this. Promise.

USVI private birthday boat charter
Apr 2021
I chartered a boat for my wife's birthday to take us around USVI. The experience was absolutely amazing. Duncan our boat captain asked us what we wanted to do that day and recommended multiple activities including beautiful snorkel spots which included a star fish location, beautiful coral formations, turtles, and sting rays. He then recommended a floating taco bar LimeOut for lunch which was awesome. He found us a very secluded white sand beach to hang out for a while and finished off by taking us to a small island that was literally crawling with thousands of hermit crabs. Duncan was awesome! Very outgoing and easy to talk to. He also knew the entire USVI island very well which was a relief because I didn't have to plan anything. My life had a amazing birthday. The only problem is I doubt I will ever be able to come near this experience on her future birthdays. Thank you Duncan!

Captain Val is AMAZING!!! We LOVE....One Love!!
Mar 2021
Highlight of our trip!! Had an AMAZING day with Captain Val. As we had previously toured St. Thomas, we spent the day going around St. John. Val knew all the beautiful beaches and coves. We spent hours snorkeling, relaxing, and taking in the beautiful views. Val was simply THE BEST and she discussed with us what we wanted to do and then mapped it all out for us to see beforehand. We cannot wait to return and will book in advance for two days - it is that incredible!

Engaged on the water!
Mar 2021
I booked this charter with the intention of proposing to my girlfriend at one of our stops. Joe and Amanda made every effort to make sure this was an enjoyable experience. Their was champagne stocked in the cooler, Joe had some great spots in mind for my proposal including a remote beach at St. John and a newer restaurant (Lovango) for lunch that you could only access by boat (spectacular view!). Needless to say, it was a great success. I am very glad we chose One Love Charters over the many other options. This was certainly the best part of our week long trip in the USVI and I highly recommend. One Love!

Best day on the islands! Captain Val took me and my fiancé to our new favorite beach in the world with sea turtles and a sting ray in beautiful turquoise water and to an awesome pizza boat (Pizza Pi) for lunch along with a few other great snorkeling spots! Val knows the islands and her history- such a nice and relaxing way to see around, especially since we had no idea where to go! Highly recommend!

Great times!

We recently went out with Captain Joe for a great day of snorkeling and relaxing.
There are many charter companies but One Love has been at this for a long time and know the hidden spots. They provide great service with excellent knowledge of the area.

Wonderful day on the water
Feb 2020
A group of us (4 adults and 2 children, ages 12 and 14) spent a day on the water with Captain Joe. We had an amazing time! Joe was extremely accommodating and knowledgeable of the area, places to go and best activities for our group. I would definitely choose One Love Charters again for another family boat day!

Amazing day on the water
Feb 2020
I pre set up a day trip with One Love Charter for a snorkeling boating around St Johns. What a spectacular day it was!! Amanda was very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. Our captain that day was Val. We actually had meet her before on another excursion we did two years ago. That made this day even better. She took us snorkeling which we saw sea turtles, string rays and lots of beautiful fish. Stopped for lunch at a new place Zoe Zoe’s right on the water. It couldn’t have been a better day. Hopefully we can back next year to stay in St Thomas. We love the island.
Thank you again Amanda, Joe and Captain Val. You did a fabulous job!!
