“Great day with Captain Cleve”

Local Flavor Day Charters
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 December 2013

Yesterday we spent a fabulous day with Captain Cleve! He's a great guy who, as a local to St John, knows the area extremely well. He's very professional and clearly respected by other captains. We went snorkeling, lunched at Willie T's, drinks at Foxy's and the Soggy Dollar. We're ready to book for next year! A day trip on a private charter is worth the cost and he's the best!

We decided to book with Cleve for our private charter last week. We were 2 couples and loved being able to choose our itinerary. We were able to stay as little or as long as we liked at each stop. Some highlights included snorkeling at the Indians, lunch on Willie T's and a stop at Sandy Spit. Cleve is a native of St. John and a super nice guy, his boat was comfortable and spotless. I would definitely book with him again!

We recently stayed at Caneel Bay in St. John and did a day charter to the BVIs with Captain Cleve from Local Flavor. I heard good things about Cleve on tripadvisor.com, so I promptly contacted him to reserve a date as soon as we booked our trip to STJ. For us, day trips to the BVIs are an essential part of any visit to St. John or St. Thomas. Cleve picked us up at the dock at Caneel Bay- very convenient for us! We checked in on Tortola before heading straight for The Baths on Virgin Gorda. After a smooth and scenic one hour ride, Cleve dropped us off at The Baths and told us exactly where to go for the best experience. We had a great time hiking the beach trail and swimming amongst the boulders at one of the most picturesque spots on earth. We then hopped back onto the boat and asked Cleve to take us snorkeling prior to visiting Jost Van Dyke. He proceeded to take us to an unspoiled reef in a remote corner of Tortola for some fantastic snorkeling. The corals were very colorful and the reef was impressively healthy. Next, we headed over to Jost Van Dyke for lunch at Sidney’s Peace and Love. Cleve is well-known there, and we had a great lunch of fresh local lobster. Finally, we made our obligatory stop at White Bay for painkillers at Soggy Dollar and One Love. If you are staying on St. John and considering a day charter, I would highly recommend a trip with Cleve. He is friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating and a very professional captain. You can find more information on his website, including his contact information to make a booking.
