Private water taxi service from the end of the L'esperance trail to the Visitors Center is part of the service when you sign up for a guided hike through the National Park Service. The ride is about 40 minutes and is smooth and offers wonderful views of the island. Water and lemonade are provided.

There were 30 of us on the boat for a day of snorkeling/swimming. Everyone had a wonderful time and the Captain was amazing - Super friendly and put up with all of us and our music all day. Would use Sadie Sea Charters again if I return to the Islands.

Capt. Tom is a highly experienced boat captain. His knowledge of the area is unmatched. I highly recommend chartering Sadie Sea.

Sadie Sea was a big hit with the 29 members of our family on board. We had 4 generations taking advantage of a full day trip. Even the great grandchildren, ages 3 1/2 and 5/12 got in the water. Captain Tom took the family to 3 wonderful snorkeling spots and let the family play as long as they wanted. We... More

Couldn't have asked for a better time. We were able to visit several snorkel spots and the kids loved jumping off the top of the boat... More

Captain Tom and mate Kim were fantastic. Had 15 people with 4 kids aged 6, 4, 3, and 2. Took us to calm areas and Kim was terrific with the kids...Having been a nanny, the kids warmed up to her right away. They allowed us to stream our kind of music straight to the stereo system...wonderful half day trip. Wouldn't... More
