We spent the day with Captain Steve from SunSea Charters on our port stop to St. Thomas. We were cruising on The Regal Princess and were looking for a private boat charter for the day. Our 16 yr old boys say it was the highlight of our trip. Although the water was rough that day Captain Steve found several spots... More

We booked a trip with Steve after recommendations from friends. We were on a Princes Cruise. The boys 15.75-16.33 yo, they said this day with Steve was the best part of the trip. Jumping in topped all other activities. Steve's keen eye also saved a couple, from another boat, who were struggling against waves and currents and were loosing ground.... More

We visited Tortola for my fiance's birthday along with 7 other friends. We booked for two different "boat days" with Captain Steve Thornton. We had an amazing time and Steve was a great captain and tour guide. The first day out he took us snorkeling to the "Indians" and then to some caves.....fabulous. Then we island hopped around to the... More

For our Honeymoon, my husband and I stayed in St. John. We chartered a boat with Sun Sea Charters and had captain Steve, who was absolutely fantastic! We started our trip with a tour of the north shore of St. John-the most beautiful waters we have ever seen! Then Steve took us to Jost Van Dyke in the BVI's, to... More

If you're looking for a unique, relaxed & extraordinary experience on the water in the Virgin Islands, I can absolutely recommend Captain Steve and Sun Sea Charters. Steve stopped at nothing to make sure we were comfortable and having a great time at all times. The Sun Sea itself was impeccably clean and fully-stocked always. I would definitely recommend this...

Spent a day on the water with a fabulous and knowledgeable captain. Was a little windy and rough that day but boat and captain made for a smooth ride. Went to a wonderful spot on Jost for lunch- yummy lobster sandwich and good cold beers. A day to remember with our two best friends. Can't wait to do it again!

We are lucky enough to have chartered with Alex multiple times over a couple of trips down the the Virgin Island. There is not much better in the world than spending a day out on Alex's boat. Alex is a super laid back guy and with tons of local insight into hidden places all around the islands. Our latest trip... More

Just spent the day on the water with Captain Alex on his Mako 28. Great fun. So chill, so nice, great with the kids. We were four adults and two four year olds and one 1 1/2 year old baby. Would recommend to anyone.

We spent a day with Alex exploring the BVI - He was incredibly knowledgeable, responsive and fun! I grew up on the islands and am familiar with the places we went, but Alex added color to those places and brought us through some really unique spots, including a lunch stop for some fabulous pates! I highly recommend his suggested "BVI... More
