Our family of 5 had a great day out on the water with Captain Jay. We have been on day trips on bigger boats here in the VI's, and this was by and away a better experience. Based on Captain Jay's recommendations we were able to hit a couple of new spots and enjoy some of the familiar. Our kids... More

My husband and I had the best snorkel tour with Palm Tree! We had a great time with Captain Jay, who took us to the Indians, the Caves on Norman, Jay's secret snorkel spot, and the wreck of the Rhone. We learned all about the area from Jay, who had wonderful stories for us on the ride to the snorkel... More

Had an amazing time with Palm Tree Charters. We chartered the boat for 2 separate days. Day 1 was just the wife and I. Sarah was an amazing Captain. We went around St. John and she showed us all the coves and beaches. Even pointed out the famous home owners and gave us a history lesson of the different sites.... More

Jimmy and Brigitte were fantastic! We had such a nice time and enjoyed every minute! Thank you for an amazing day filled with relaxation and fun times! We really enjoyed our snorkeling and stop to eat at Pizza Pi! We even got to see a baby dolphin with the mommy dolphin!

We chose Palm Tree Charters based on reviews and were not disappointed! Jimmy and Bridget were easy and nice to work with while planning our trip. But Captain Sara was the real jewel! She even impressed our teenage boys! She took us to the best snorkling, gave us great tips, and figured out our personalities quickly which made for an... More

A friend recommended Palm Tree Charters to us as a "must do" experience while vacationing in St. John. The thought of chartering a boat for just the four of us and getting a personal tour of the area was very intriguing so we contacted PTC for some information. The owners, Jimmy and Bridget, responded the same day and provided some... More

Our first day on St John and we chartered a boat from Palm Tree Charters. We're a family of 5 with 3 young adults and we were looking for a good introcution to the beaches and a visit to Jost Van Dyke. The original boat we reserved (no deposit is needed) was out for maintenance but their other boat was... More

Jimmy and Bridget are extremely enjoyable as well as knowledgeable. In fact, they changed dates for us due to conditions that would have been unpleasant. Their knowledge of the area is excellent. We had so much fun that we booked a second day. They have a standby, Sarah, who is just as good. Their two boats are fine, but they're... More

We had such a great day on this trip! Bridget and Jimmy were the perfect hosts/guides. From the first email to the moment they dropped us off on the beach in St. John, everything went perfectly on our day trip around the islands! I recommend doing this trip early during your stay on St. John because they give you a... More

My wife and I went out for the second year in a row and loved it. They do an excellent job. We had will have a great trip seeing some new places while finishing the day at our favorite stop. They make you feel right at home on their boat which makes for a great experience.
