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.

Ben basically rolls out the red carpet (or faded beach towel, but still) for you as a guest on Beer Cooler. He'll take you anywhere you want to go, but we deferred to him for an itinerary and he nailed it. Once out of customs...More

We used Copland Boat Charters while on vacations at St. Thomas. We took a ferry over to St. John and Ryan took us to a bunch of perfect snorkel sights. We swam with sea turtles, and had an awesome day! They took us to a...More

Copeland Boat Charters was excellent to deal with. Quick to respond. We had a full day out with Captain Ryan. He was great too. Very knowledgeable about the area. It all contributed to a great day on the water.
