A day on the Lion in Da Sun was the perfect way to start our vacation in St. John. Captain Rick picked us up at a convenient location and we immediately set off on our day. He brought us to some great snorkel spots where we all saw turtles, rays and beautiful coral. Captain Rick brought us to some great secluded snorkel spots too! Seeing both St. Thomas and St. John from this perspective was amazing. Everyone in our party (4 adults and 5 kids) had a great time and would definitely recommend a day with Captain Rick on the Lion in Da Sun.

Captain Rick was a wonderful guide on our boat trip. My 2 sons and one of their friends, all in their 20's, and I had a great time. We have been vacationing on St. John almost yearly since the early 80's and this trip on Lion in Da Sun is definitely one of the best things we have done. Capt. Rick's knowledge of the history and information about the island and some of it "famous" inhabitants, past and present, was very interesting and entertaining. We went snorkeling at the Indians and the Caves at Norman Island, a stop at Sandy Spit and lunched at the Willy T (which included a leap off the back of the boat!) and ended up at Jost Van Dyke. I have done this charter 5 other times with other captains and hands down Capt. Rick is definitely the best!

Captain Rick showed us a great time on the water around St. John and St. Thomas. We had two families on the boat with a total of 5 kids. We had lots of opportunities to snorkel some great sites that were off the beaten path and Rick gave us a good dose of local history and lore. A great host and a knowledgable captain, I can't recommend Captain Rick and Lion In Da Sun enough. Definitely a five star activity.

If you're thinking of booking a charter to Jost Van Dyke and/or the rest of the British Virgin Islands, Captain Rick is your man! Our group spent the day on Jost Van Dyke. Of course, we spent a considerable amount of time off of White Bay and the Soggy Dollar Bar. However, Captain Rick also took us to meet the legendary Foxy, after checking us through Customs at Great Harbor. What an experience! To top it off, Rick recommended a fabulous lunch at Foxy's Taboo; along with a visit to the famous "Bubbly Pool" on the island.

Can't thank you enough, Captain Rick!!!
