Here’s What Our Customers are Saying

Best Charter in the Virgin Islands! Captain Nate's custom charters is the best way to see the Virgin Islands. He's skilled and knowledgeable and the name is accurate- he will customize the day for you, how you want it. He's very personable and easy to get along with. I went with a large group and he made sure all of us had a great time. Highly recommend! Visited July 2014

Captain Nate Made Our Vacation! We were lucky to find Nate free when we got to St Thomas, but we did and he created the BEST day of our vacation! We enjoyed the day easily swimming from beautiful beaches or right from his boat. His boat is so comfortable and well-equipped. Nate introduced our kids 7 and 10 to snorkeling - he has a true gift for working with kids in the water. We all enjoyed a great luncheon spot, swam more, and returned home wishing we could have another of Nate's special days. Don't miss one of his adventures! Nate's been in St Thomas for many years and knows where all the best places are and pays special attention…Read More

Best day ever! This was our second time on Nate's boat. The first was just my husband and I and we had such a great time snorkeling and fishing. When we booked our trip back to St Thomas with our children (ages 9 and 11) the first thing I did was contact Nate. The kids had soooo much fun! We snorkeled with Sea Turtles, swam at one of the most beautiful and peaceful beaches and even caught a Barracuda. What an amazing day. Nate was great about mixing up the day with exciting adventure and relaxing time. When I get on Nates boat I an confident he will make it a day to remember. If you want a relaxing day…Read More

Another fantastic tour! Each year we visit our time share in St.Thomas and we usually bring others with us. This year we booked with Nate twice! You just can't beat the experience! Anything you want to do...that's all there is to it. Want to snorkel? No problem. Want to find conch shells? Even easier. Fishing? Sure, why not. How about all of them at once? You create your day and Nate makes it the best time you'll have in the islands! Oh, and yes, he does trips to the BVI as well. Soggy Dollar, Willy T's, Foxy's...just pick a place and you're there. We spend at least one day a year with Nate. It's become a tradition for our vacation.…Read More

Capt Nate is the best!! We've chartered with Nate several times and he never fails to provide a great day in the BVI's. We were in Tortola with a cruise ship and Nate made what would have been a good day in Cane Garden Bay, a great day at Jost Van Dyke and the Willy T. His new boat is awesome and takes the water smoothly and gets to where you are going fast and comfortable. Always a great day! Visited January 2015

Nate the Mate! I've used Nate for business entertaining a few times before but this was the first time with my family. I was a little apprehensive on how the kids aged 9&8 would cope on their first ever boat tour and had visions we'd be turning for home after 10 mins. How wrong I could have been. Nate made the kids a big part of the day, they loved every minute, a whole days booking was just not enough..! His boat is the perfect size, ( a lot of the competition have much smaller boats) as steady as a rock and Nate is a great skipper, even when having fun with the kids he has another eye on every…Read More

Captain Nate is Your Tour Guide Extraordinaire!!! We visit St. John USVI every year, and we always book a day with Captain Nate. He does a wonderful custom charter boating day that is both relaxing and flexible. Nate is a fantastic boat captain, and knows his way around the USVI and BVI! He always stocks his boat with excellent beverages, and he is very personable. He is professional and reliable in regards to the operation of his charter service, and his boat provides a smooth ride through the turquoise water - ahhhh. We can't say enough great things about him. We always have loads of fun, and we recommend him highly! Visited January 2015
