Why choose Nate’s Custom Charters?

We’re a small boutique company that is all about providing quality experiences away from the crowds. Each group is unique, with a different idea of what their perfect day looks like. We are here to create those memories for you and help design the best day of your vacation. We listen to our customers’ wants and needs and use our local knowledge and insight to ensure you get the most out of your time on the water. We have four amazing captains, all experienced and a lot of fun to spend the day with. Nate has carefully selected each captain, and we have a team that is the best on the island.

The boat provides the best platform for spending the day. Every detail has been carefully considered to enhance your comfort. Over the past 20 years, Nate has dedicated himself to creating a boat that simply “makes sense” and is suitable for both small and large parties. If you require a ladder, we have a custom dive ladder that facilitates easy entry and exit from the water. For those seeking ample shade to relax and enjoy the view, our jumbo hard top accommodates shade for at least 12 people. Additionally, there is plenty of space for sun enthusiasts to catch some Vitamin D. The boat features a full-size bathroom in case you prefer not to take a dip in the water. We provide a fully stocked cooler with an abundance of water, beer, and soda for everyone. Our captains are also Coast Guard-certified bartenders, ready to serve up the most delicious homemade painkiller drinks that are truly delightful.

Captain’s Recommendations

We highly recommend snorkeling with sea turtles and colorful fish, as we have numerous fantastic snorkel spots teeming with vibrant marine life and beautiful turtles. Exploring and sightseeing along breathtaking beaches is also a popular choice. Our captains are well-versed in the best beaches and secluded coves to enhance your experience. When hunger strikes, we can make a pit stop at one of the excellent local lunch spots along the way, ensuring there’s something for everyone. For those looking to maximize their time on the boat, feel free to bring snacks and sandwiches to stow in the cooler, as we have ample space. When booking the charter, please communicate your preferences for the itinerary, and we will craft a memorable day tailored to your desires.

I heard about Captain Nate from a friend of mine and I have to say, he is nothing less than the best!!!! We had an amazing time on the water and he took us to two absolutely gorgeous snorkeling spots and St. John for lunch at a beach bar!!! His painkiller drinks were so good too!!! The boat he has is massive and perfect for a large group or even something more intimate. Fully equipped with snorkel gear (fins included) and also floaties!!! We will definitely be going out on the water with him again and you should too! The pictures don’t even justify how fun our day was!!!
