Carl was an absolute treat! He was so informative and friendly. I had never been snorkeling in my life and it was fantastic! He was super helpful and we saw many a creature. The Dragonfly is a beautiful vessel and the sailing was smooth.

We have sailed with Captain Heinz and Carl several times but this was the best. Heinz is so informative and friendly and Buck Island was at it's best, both the snorkeling and the beach. First mate Kaylee is awesome too! Highly recommended!!

Absolutely one of the best days on the island! We were greeted warmly by Capt. Heinz and his crew as we boarded the Terero. After clearing the marina, the sails were hoisted and we were underway. The views of St. croix and Buck Island were...More

I think they would be a great choice. It is a family business. I saw the boat leave with two young toddlers one day as we were living on a boat in the same marina. Price is about $75/person when we were there. A BARGAIN
