Fun day on the water

It's a nice day out on buck island. I wish there was a bit more chill time at buck island itself but the time spent there and snorkeling was nice. Lunch was delicious.

Friendly, attentive, and entertaining crew: Captain Mike, Tommy, Chris, & Adam. An attempt to pick up 9 passengers (including a family of 6 with one mentally challenged child) at the Buccaneer Resort did not go well and we had to make another stop at Green Quay Marina to pick them up. The captain promised to add the lost time onto... More

We did the six hour tour with lunch on the beach and then signed up for the sunset cruise the following day. I would definitely recommend them, as they did not pack the boat full of people, as I've experienced on other tours. There was plenty of space to move around and the rum punch was abundant. Lunch was simple... More

Snorkling at Buck Island is a mind-blowing experience. I felt as if I were swimming in a giant aquarium, possibly on another planet. The water was crystal clear and turquoise, the coral beautifully patterned, eerie, bulbous or long-limbed and the fish gorgeous and vibrantly colored. I saw two barracudas and possibly a small reef shark, but I'm not sure. The... More

Buck Island morning half day snorkeling trip was fun. Witty funny crew that couldn't have been nicer. The coral reef and fish were great. 10 barracudas staring right at me. Saw a huge lobster. Would have liked to swim around longer but the waves were rolling. Wish we had a calmer day. They do offer half price to come back... More

Most of this tour was as expected. The boat was clean and safety conditions reassuring, timeliness for the start and finish as advertised. The crew were superlative, friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and jovial. Adam, Chris, Tommy and (Mike) all great. The site, Buck Island, did not disappoint, and the Coakley Bay beach stop was good. The conditions of tide and wave... More

We had a blast. We did the full day trip. Group size was 12 and not too over crowded. They kept to their travel plan. Half day trip essentially just skips the lunch. Food was really good though.

Went with my girlfriend and must admit that Buck Island is the best beach we've ever been to, and the reef with snorkeling just as great. An absolutely MUST go!!!! Later we went to the sunset trip which was great as well until some over drunk Americans (could have been Danes as well) started to flirt with the captain, which... More

Tony and I spent a great day at Buck Island with the Big Beard crew. A 25 minute ride out to the island from Christiansted. First stopped at a beach to practice and then on to the reef. It was beautiful and plenty of time to see all of the great snorkeling sites. Shout out to Captian Steve and mates,... More

Hardly any time spent snorkeling. Felt like 10 minutes! Waist of money. Spent hours at the beach. Can do that anywhere on the island! I suggest you find private charter to Buck Island!
