We looked for a family friendly way to tour the Virgin Islands. We weren't interested in party boats, fortunately we found Palm Tree Charters. Jimmy was excellent with communication and Captain Sarah was fantastic. There was more than enough of room for 2 adults and 2 teens. Getting through customs was a breeze and they took care of it all... More

We had a great day on our charter with Palm Tree! We were picked up on the beach where we were staying and returned the same way which was VERY convenient. Our Captain Walt was very informative and willing to take us to all of the places that we requested. It was the highlight of our trip!

We had an awesome day with the friendly Captain Jay! Our family of 6 included our 13 year old special needs son. The Captain was very accommodating with his need for a little extra help. We enjoyed snorkeling in the pirate caves and along coral heads at Norman Island. Saw squids and an octopus! Lunch at Pirate's Blight, beer at... More

We came to St John without planning to do a day on the water but decided early in our stay to look for a boat tour that might take us to some of the other Virgin Islands and different snorkeling spots. After a little research online we found PTC and contacted Jimmy via email. He had an opening and could... More

We headed out with Sarah for the day after filling out customs paperwork. We really love snorkeling so we discussed a few options for the day and since this was our 3rd charter to the BVIs we knew something about what we wanted to do. Sarah picked the first stop at Lovango Cay which was new to us. She moored... More

We spent a day with Palm Tree Charters because we could customize our entire day. We basically went island hopping with the fabulous Captain Jay- who ensured we had enough time to get in everything we wanted to do and was very knowledgeable on all the islands and the entire area. We would definitely do this again next time we... More

First time chartering on St. John, and after some research, it seemed that Palm Tree Charters was first on the locals preferred list. After a little email correspondence with Jimmy, we were all set. Super easy to work with, and it couldn't have gone any smoother. It was just my wife and I, and we had Captain Sarah as our... More

Our family voted this to be the best day of our entire vacation! Sarah was our knowledgable and super friendly Captain for the day. She was very informative about all of the beaches and Islands we traveled by as well as the stops we made. It was evident that she has tons of experience and enjoys what she does every... More

Our family of 5 had a great day out on the water with Captain Jay. We have been on day trips on bigger boats here in the VI's, and this was by and away a better experience. Based on Captain Jay's recommendations we were able to hit a couple of new spots and enjoy some of the familiar. Our kids... More

My husband and I had the best snorkel tour with Palm Tree! We had a great time with Captain Jay, who took us to the Indians, the Caves on Norman, Jay's secret snorkel spot, and the wreck of the Rhone. We learned all about the area from Jay, who had wonderful stories for us on the ride to the snorkel... More
