We took a day trip with Jason and our 2 children to BVI in April 2015. We had a wonderful time. Everything was perfect. Jason even watched the kids while my wife and I took a swim to Soggy Dollar for a cold beer. I have been to BVI many times and this was one of my favorite excursions. Jason... More

We had a very good day snorkeling around the south shore of St. John with Island Roots Charters. Our guide knew where to take us and was very knowledgeable about the underwater conditions and sea life. Highly recommended!

We had a fantastic day on the water with Thomas. He tailored the day to suit the boating conditions and took us to some great snorkeling spots. Can't say enough nice things about Thomas. He's so friendly and really interesting to talk to. He was also very good piloting the boat through some "sporty" surf. We were completely comfortable. Ended... More

This was truly one of the highlights on our 10 day St. John's vacation. Our Captain, Thomas, was extremely knowledgeable and knew everything from tropical birds we saw, the kind of fish we watched when we snorkeled, to the best place to put in so we could see great corals and reef life. It was truly a wonderful experience and... More

Couldn't have asked for a better day. Thomas was our captain and couldn't have made our experience any better. He was able to navigate the boat to the best spots and time stops to avoid the crowds. Low key and casual. Definitely a great value too. I highly recommend booking with Island Roots.
