We spent a great day on the water with Captain Dylan. He was so accommodating! He took us to some great snorkel spots and then on to White Bay for pain killers. Definitely a day not to be missed.

I highly recommend Big Blue Excursions. They showed us the best time - great snorkeling and a fun day in the BVI. The boat was clean and well stocked and everyone was so nice and professional.

Hi Ray : We're heading there in a few weeks. I like the idea of this excursion. Did you pre-book this prior to your trip to SJVI...or is it something you could book once we get there and figure out of week in paradise?

HI Big Blue, We are coming to St. John in late October 23-1st of November. Our friends will join us on the 25th -30th. There will be a total of 4 and would like to get some idea of chartering a boat and visiting some of the islands for the day. I would love to do a sailboat, however that darn motion sickness might get to me....All for suggestions and recommendations from your company as we are celebrating my 60th! Thank you
