Captain Craig was a great tour guide. Everything was seamless throughout the day, even going through customs on BVI. All of the bars and restaurants that he took us to were excellent. I would highly recommend him! (We were a family of 6 adults)

I highly recommend chartering Lion In Da Sun for a couple of reasons. 1.) Captain Rick treated us like Family. He took us to some of the most beautiful and secluded spots around St. John. He planned the day based off what we wanted to do and see. 2.) Captain Rick is like a walking Thesaurus for the US &... More

Craig has been taking us out for multiple trips for the past 9 years. Vacation wouldn't be the same without him. He will take great care of you and your family and show you a great time. Very experienced and fun to be around. I highly recommend using him!!

While having a wonderful breakfast at Molly Malone's on a rainy morning we happened to recognize a Brielle Day t-shirt on a guy sitting at the bar about to order his own breakfast. We approached Captain Rick and soon realized we had found a fast friend. We asked him what there was to do on the island on a rainy... More

We love Captain Craig for bringing his guests over to Dinghy's on Water Island! Craig is always so happy and goes above and beyond to make sure his guests have a great experience. He is a great captain and we appreciate him keeping it local!

Captain Rick is very conscious of his passengers. Even us, "The Buttercup Crew", were given a nice tour/education of the islands and were taken to calm, shallow spots to snorkel. By mid-day, even the most skeptical of us ventured into the waters!!

We booked a boat for the day with Cpt Craig and were treated with his experience, kind attention to what we were up for, suggestions that got a "super fun" rating from a 10 yr old. We had the best snorkeling spots, his laid back trip was just what we had in mind. Dont think about it, book a day... More
