Our first day in St. Croix and we could not have chosen a friendlier and more professional company. Our day trip on their shiny new catamaran to Buck Island for a glorious day of snorkeling and exploring was a perfect and most memorable family trip. They even served up some freshly made rum punch to the adults to cap it off. Alex, Hailey and Captain Jack (?) were fantastic guides. This is a must do!
No leaving the resort

Great Snorkeling Trip with new boat, very great equipment and very nice and lovely crew, thank you so much 🙂
Highlight of our trip!! I would do this again and again. Next time we will go for the full day. The beach was beyond words. Thanks Captain Peter and First Mate Bun!!
My husband and I visited St. Croix for our honeymoon back in June. This was easily one of the highlights of our entire trip! Buck Island took my breath away. I also loved hearing the history of the island and why it is protected. I had never snorkeled before but they provided excellent instruction and made us feel perfectly safe. Daniel, Frankie, and Allie were our captain/tour guides/instructors. The views were exceptional and seeing under the water took my breath away. I would recommend this to anyone who is visiting St. Croix and I hope to go back!
