The Most Affordable Charters on St John! Two Boats with Several Options!...

The Most Affordable Charters on St John! Two Boats with Several Options! 26 ft World Cat or 21ft Zodiac. Up for an adventure? Try our new 21ft Zodiac; it's fast & fun and great for affordable Half Day Charters or our Jost only trip. Charter our 26ft Worldcat and go Island hopping, Snorkeling or to a remote beach to just relax in the warm waters of the Caribbean. Why not spend your vacation exploring the US and British Virgin Islands on a private captained boat charter.

We enjoy having kids on board and have added children's snorkel gear to our fine selection of equipment. Bring the kids with you and we'll provide some beach toys for them to play with.

Had a wonderful full day charter with Ben. We visited Norman and Jost. Had a wonderful lunch at Norman . Did some great snorkeling at several spots and had fun in the bubble pool on Jost. Even though it was a rainy day, we had a great adventure and would highly recommend Ben to give you a personal tour on... More

I had the pleasure of going on a charter to a few coves, through customs, Roxie Taboo restaurant and White Bay to the Soggy Dollar. Wow-what an adventure. The captain pointed out and shared the history of everywhere we went and stopped. Shared island and Bay facts, how some places became famous and the beauty of where we were. I... More

A very special day trip with Captain Ben. He took time to listen to what we liked and threw out several options to fit our tastes. Snorkeled three locations, two of which we had all to ourselves, wow. Excellent lunch on the beach at Pirates Bight on Norman Island and delightful trip to sip Soggy Bottom Painkillers at White Bay... More

My wife and I were on our 5 year anniversary, and chartered Captain Ben. All I can say, is if you want a private boat, to take you anywhere you want, look no further. Ben is incredibly professional guy, very cool to hang out with, and has everything you need on the boat. He took us to the Baths at... More

From start to finish, this was an amazing experience all around. We were staying in a villa for the week on St John, and the boat we had planned to day charter fell through for one reason or another. Am glad it did. Our villa connection, Colby, knew just who to call. Ben's boat "The Beer Cooler" (coolest boat name... More

We found Copeland Boat Charters and Captain Ben and went out for a 4 hour cruise. Ben was an absolute professional and easy to work with both prior to and during the... More

We were looking for a half day charter from St. John and decided upon Copeland Boat Charters. Best decision. Captain Ben was extremely knowledgeable taking us out to Jost Van Dyke for the day. He picked us up right in front of the Westin, very convenient. Boat was very clean and provided us with the best painkillers on the island.... More

Ben was great with everyone onboard. He offered interesting area information, friendly instruction and even recommended a lovely lunch location. There were plenty of great views and wonderful snorkeling spots.... More

We found Captain Ben thru trip advisor before we made our reservations. With all the excellent reviews we could not go wrong. Went on a half day tour. He even picked us up at St Thomas marina, just pay the docking fee of 35.00 more. The snorkle gear was also included. He was soo amazing! Showed us all the islands... More
