We were on a cruise & stopped in St. Thomas. We booked Big Blue (in advance) and everything worked out perfectly. Captain MIndy (the... More

I wanted to take my adult children on snorkeling trip out of Cruz Bay Saint John. Saw good reviews about Big Blue. They didn't disappoint. Our guide took us to several beautiful coves and reefs. He promised sea turtles and we saw sea turtles along with many other wonderful fish and coral. This company is friendly, easy to work with,... More

He was a great captain and host and extremely knowledgeable about the area. We loved Sandy Spit and the bubbly pool. Had lunch at Taboo which was his suggestion and it was great. He... More

Dylan picked us up in the new Grady While and it was great to have such a knowledgeable captain. It was worth paying a little extra for Bug Blue! They customized our trip and Dylan took us to Cooper island for lunch after a trip to the Baths in Virgin Gorda. We still had time to hit Soggy Dollar in... More

We enjoyed our day out. Equipment was excellent, well-maintained and safe. Captain Jason was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful with things even beyond the boat, and a font of great information on the USVI, BVI, hiking and more. Good snorkeling, refreshments, fun at the Soggy Dollar and Foxy's, and so on. Completely worth it and a great choice! Mindy was also completely... More

My family of 5 had a blast with Captain JC on the new Grady White! There were some winds that day and JC came up with a great itinerary. We found a few wonderful snorkeling spots before heading to the BVIs. He recommended the perfect lunch spot in Jost Van Dyke and overall was a terrific captain. Clearly has great... More

We went out with Dylan on Gypsea Girl the week after Thanksgiving (3 adults, 2 kids ages 6 & 7). This was our second time using Big Blue and I can't say enough nice things about them! We were able to customize our trip to fit in every single place we wanted to visit between Cruz Bay and the BVIs.... More
