The legendary Norman Island is also known by another name, Treasure Island. It is believed that the author Robert Louis Stevenson based his legendary book Treasure Island off the location of Norman Island. Several of the landmarks presented in the book match up to the geography of Norman Island a little too well to coincidence. While the tales in Stevenson’s book are fictional Norman Island does have a history of buried treasure. It is recorded that the crew of the Spanish galleon Neustra Senora de Guadalupe buried an estimated 55 chests of treasure on Norman Island. The treasure was later discovered by residents of the island but it is still believed that more could exist. This simply adds to the allure of the 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.
