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.

Our party of 4 had a fun day on the water with Captain Ryan. Although we initially thought a private charter was out of our price range, the cost was quite similar to a group excursion and the day's agenda was totally ours to make. We were met promptly on the dock as arranged and took off for BVI Customs, where we... More

Ryan was possibly the best captain and tour guide we've ever had. He was knowledgeable on the area, safe, fun, and fine-tuned the experience to our interests. It was very interesting seeing the islands from the water. We snorkeled and had a great lunch and just enjoyed the beautiful ride.

Ryan cruised us along the north shore of St. John and then took us to several excellent snorkeling spots on the south side. He was super friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely go out on the water again with Copeland Boat Charters!

My group of people went out with captain Ben last May and had an amazing time! Captain Ben is extremely laid back and knows all the best spots for snorkeling and island hoping. He is great with kids and is very accommodating. We went to the soggy dollar, the Indians, sandy spit and a few extra snorkeling spots. This was... More

My husband I recently chartered Copeland Boat Charters for our trip in St. John. We spoke with Ben (the Captain and business owner) over the phone before booking and immediately felt like we would be in good hands and have a blast. We gave him a general idea of where we wanted to go and he was able to quote... More

If you have a good sense of humor and like having fun, not to mention going to best snorkeling spots, I... More

We had an awesome day with Captain Ben! We had two adults and three children ages 8, 7, and 4. It was a beautiful day and he was able to take us to Virgin Gorda. The kids loved exploring the area. He then took us to Newman Island for lunch and for some great snorkeling. He was so great with... More

We had a wonderful day out with Captain Ben. He took us around to some pretty amazing snorkeling sites! We swam with sea turtles, sting rays, and beautiful fish. Ben was fun, relaxed and easy to chat with all day! The boat was comfortable and clean. Make sure you have him make you some of his famous rum punch! See... More
