Highly recommend booking this particular tour! I spent awhile doing research and am so happy we ended up on this one. I’ve done similar tours in other countries and especially for the price, this experience couldn’t be beat. Mike and Nikki were awesome and helpful - I learned some new things, but they definitely didn’t helicopter around and also let you do your thing if you wanted which was nice. Buck Islans was one of the best/clearest snorkeling experiences I’ve ever had - two turtles, a stingray, squid, and tons of fish...beautiful day.

What a great time! Mike and Nikki were a lot of fun. We saw a couple of dolphins in the harbor and Mike allowed extra time to spend watching them. He was also very informative about the area and the yachts we passed. Even with the brief rain, it didn't dampen the fun. Definitely recommend!!

Capt. Mike and Nikki were very responsive to any need/want we had. We had 2 children ages 5, 7 and 4 adults. Nikki was very knowledgeable about life under water and guided our group where to snorkel. Saw a turtle, lots of small fish. Beautiful day for sailing.

Captain Mike and 1st mate Nikki were wonderful. This is a great trip for young and old. Nikki was a terrific and informative snorkeling guide, using her marine biology knowledge to inform us. The crew was attentive to every detail!

We really enjoyed our sailing half day trip with Captain Mike. We had a great time snorkeling and seeing the ship wreck near Buck island. We saw so many beautiful fishes by the sailboat. After snorkeling, we enjoyed beer and rum punch. This was the second time on the Fury and we would do it again.

Captain Mike and Nicki were great!! The boat was a perfect size and I loved it compared to a packed catamaran. Nicki helped us find the turtles and gave us great instruction after that. They were very big on safety and I would highly recommend this tour. Our group from Michigan loved it and Captain Mike gave a great tour as we went out and pointed our many St Thomas landmarks. A plus was the beer and rum punch on the way back. Loved it!!
