On the advice of a relative who is a resident of St. Croix, we booked the trip with Caribbean Sea Adventures. On a very windy day, we sailed with Captain Grant and crewman Noel. These two would get my highest recommendation for such an awesome experience. The sail out was a little longer than what Grant said was normal, but he worked the boat to use points of land to block the wind and stay out of the roughest waves. When we arrived in the snorkeling area, Noel gave some outstanding instruction to the inexperienced snorkelers in the group. Great experience in the water as Noel led the swimmers in the water and managed the group well. We then went to the beach and had lunch and relaxed before the trip back which was the epitome of “smooth sailing”. Truly a really enjoyable adventure…
Captain Miles and his crew were amazing on this adventure booked from our Royal Caribbean cruise ship. Unlike other snorkelling adventures the captain actually spent some time teaching the best methods to snorkel. Despite the showery conditions and the wind, the free rum punch made up for that! Recommended.
We booked this excursion through Carnival. Buck Island — beautiful beyond words! What made our trip one we shall long remember was our hosts – Capt.Miles and his fabulous crew, Ray, Amanda, and Avery.The comfort , enjoyment, and safety of their guests is their priority. Experienced snorkelers remarked it was one of their best trips ever. Beginners were given a thorough snorkel lesson . If they were not comfortable/confident , a crew member aided them individually so they could view the underwater trail and participate fully. Even non swimmers would be able to enjoy this once in a lifetime experience. Can’t wait to come back again!
We had an awesome tour of Buck Island! Our crew was made up of Miles, Amanda, and Avery! They were awesome to spend the day with! My friend and I had never snorkeled before and they went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable! They guided us through the underwater trail making sure we were doing good the whole time! We went to the other side of the island and checked out the beach for awhile and then headed back! There were a range of people from children to a few older people and also some who didn’t speak English! From the smiles on everyone’s faces getting off the crew did an amazing job! A shout out to Avery, Amanda, and Miles for the fun day! I can’t wait to bring more visitors for a tour!
We didn’t go with a cruise ship excursion, so there were about 20 of us on the trip; a very comfortable size group. The crew was awesome, and the snorkeling was fantastic! I wasn’t really expecting to put my face in the water and be instantly placed in what seemed like a tropical aquarium. We had some engine trouble on the way out that slowed us down a bit, but the company made it right by giving us half off. We went for the full day, and Turtle beach was very nice, but next time I would just go for a half day and snorkel only.
CSA’s crew was great. Took their time with us, very friendly. Pointed out numerous things while we were snorkeling. Would recommend them to anyone! Great company. Would definitely do business with them again.
We took the 1/2 day trip to Buck Island. It is a must. The water is amazing and snorkeling was great. The departure was right on time and so was the return. The crew went out of their way to help myself and my two teenagers who haven’t snorkels before. Their divers will pull you along and guide you through the reefs so you can see everything. Moe towed us and let us hold onto a lifesaver to help us until we felt comfortable enough in the open sea snorkeling. The captain was great. So friendly and so very helpful making sure everyone felt comfortable. The island is gorgeous and the beach is breathtaking.
Very nice experience. The crew is very friendly and really engaged in preserving the marine environment. Recommend !!!
We took the afternoon trip to Buck Island Reef for snorkelling. The reef was fantastic for snorkelling. Boat was good and staff friendly. Highly recommended.
First time out snorkeling. Friendly, very helpful, and went out there way to make it a positive experience. Captain was great, but Amanda was the best. Would do this again.
Thanks again for everything,
