“A great day on the water with the family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2011

We spent a full day with Captain Rick and had a great time. Took a similar tour to others reviewed here...St. John shore, Norman Island, snorkeling at the Indians and Caves, lunch at the Willy T, Sandy Spit, and Jost Van Dyke. Our teenage children all had a great time and are anxious to do it again!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2011

Chartered day trip to BVI's including the Caves, Indian's and Jost Van Dyke - Soggy Dollar. Capt Rick was on time as promised with all the gear we need, great conversation, and kept us on a timetable to see everything we wanted. Very good boat - lots of fun. Enjoyed it so much scheduled to do again with other familiy members in August.

“Best trip ever! Chose stops and spent the day with a skilled, knowledgeable and funny captain. Booking next yr.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2011

Capt. Rick - what a great guy. He made us feel comfortable and laughed the entire day. Oh and did I mention we spent the day bar hopping to bars of our choice in the BVI's. Even the rain did not spoil our day or the memories we made with our friends including Capt. Rick.

We will be visiting St. John again next year and will book again with Lion in Da Sun.

“The best day on vacation I've ever had.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2011

Our trip with Capt. Rick was simply awesome. Our group had some ideas about where we wanted to go, and after some discussion, we took Capt. Rick's advice and went snorkeling at The Indians and The Caves, had lunch at the Willy T, stopped at Sandy Spit, and ended the day at the Soggy Dollar on Jost Van Dyke. Capt. Rick provided some history of the islands that added to the enjoyment. If you want to have a great day on vacation, I highly recommend chartering a trip on Lion In Da Sun.

“Fantastic Day on the Water!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2011

I made a decision to take the family on a boat trip for site seeing and snorkeling while visiting the Islands. I can tell you that the day was fantastic. Captain Rick was very knowledgeable of the area and was able to provide history lessons as we guided. Additionally, he was able to take us to prictine locations for snorkeling. He had great snorkeling gear on the boat. The boat itself was quite comfortable. The interaction with Captain Rick and my family was wonderful.
I would recommend this Captain and his service to anybody visiting the islands I feel it is a very good way to take advantage of the beauty the Caribbean is known for. I rate it 5 out of 5 stars!!
