Jost Van Dyke Island was named after the Dutch pirate Captain Jost Van Dyke. In the 17th century he used this island as his lookout point in order to spot ships traveling on their way to Puerto Rico, Cuba and Santa Domingo. Once a ship was spotted Captain Jost Van Dyke would strike swiftly, board the passing ship and take hold of all the goods. He along with his crew of pirates would then return back to their safe island hideout. It was this notorious pirate captain that gave the small island paradise its name. As an experienced boat charter captain, Nate will gladly share the history and legends surrounding the notorious pirate captain as you enjoy one of his St. Thomas day trips to Jost Van Dyke Island.

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 to making sure you have fun in a very safe environment! Enjoy!
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 snorkeling and beach hoping or some exciting fishing Nate will make it happen. He should be your first call when you plan your trip to st Thomas.
