Take to the seas on a private catamaran charter to experience the bliss of St. Thomas' scenic coastline and crystal blue waters. To add more adventure to your day, choose an excursion that offers snorkeling and other activities as well!
never have seen sunset at St Thomas... been there many time and I love the place. it is rich in history...we decided to cruise the harbor... the Cat ride was fun ( although the walk from the ship to the Catamaran was quite a distance... many people complained about the walk most were not prepared to walk that distance.
the sunset was spectacular and we sailed around the harbor at night... quite impressive
We took the land and sea tour. The Catamaran tour was very good, but the land tour on an open air bus was not very good. The bus was the oldest and dirtiest one of all available rides. No A/C and a 40 minute ride each way with no discussion of the area.
We did the Buck Island sail and snorkel on the Stars and Stripes. It was the highlight of my vacation. The team form the Stars & Stripes were good and took care of us. The National Geographic snorkeling gear was quality and a nice touch
We went on the "Champagne Catamaran". The JAG crew was amazing as were our fellow travelers. Went to Honeymoon Beach. Snorkeling at the site was well below average but I would still rate the entire experience as Excellent. We took the morning run which was much less crowded and thoroughly enjoyable!
Stars and Stripes catamaran with captain Kara Ann Temple. Ok snorkeling. 2 stops. One with turtles and one with small sunken wreck. Best part is crew and trip. Great music, Pain Killer punch and lots of fun. Went to local bar with crew after the tour called the Rum Shandy. A blast with crews and locals.
Each cruise that includes St. Thomas include a tour with the Champagne Catamaran crew. As always, the crew are professional; but hilarious. This was our fifth time with the same company and equally as enjoyable as the first.
The Twice as Nice Catamaran snorkeling tour was approximately 4 hours long. We started with a 45 minute trip from the shore to Buck Island. The first stop was to snorkel at a ship wreck...this was a little disappointing as the waves were too rough that day to spend much time there and very little fish to see. The 2nd stop was about 5 minutes away in a cove. There we snorkeled and saw sea turtles and reef with more colorful fish.
The boat (the Dancing Dolphin) was equipped with a restroom which made for a comfortable afternoon. Especially since beverages are served on the boat (water, soft drinks in both directions, and rum punch as well on the return trip). The crew was both knowledgeable and entertaining.
It was loads of fun. The crew mates were very helpful, knowledgeable and entertaining. Tried snorkeling, but had difficulty. the crew helped my wife and made the rest of the tour very enjoyable and fun.
Stars and Stripes are excellent!! The crew is amazing….had a great time, wish people were smarter and spread out a bit as they were right on top of us, but that's not the crews fault, were wonderful with our son and the captain was amazing. Best excursion for us, hands down
This was the only excursion I booked with the ship and surprisingly it was empty. There were maybe 20 of us on a catamaran that holds 60+. The catamaran was great in the rough water. The first stop was too rough to swim with the turtles. Bummer. But around the corner was Shipwreck Reef and it was really fun snorkeling. Our final stop was Honeymoon Beach and that was gorgeous. We just stood in the water with cocktails the entire time while the kids played in the sand. There was a food shack that others said was good, but we didn't try.
