Just got back from St. Thomas this week. Went on the snorkel tour to Buck Island and swam with wild green sea turtles. Saw approximately 6-8 different turtles. The water and the island were beautiful. The crew were very good. Joe, Jody, Mike and Mason made the trip very enjoyable. They work hard to make sure everyone had a great time. We were under motor power on the way there, and sailed back. It was very relaxing. They served drinks and snacks on the return journey. There is plenty of shade on the boat, if you want to get out of the hot sun. There is also a head on board. They give temporary tattoos on the return trip, which stayed on for about 4 days and look quite real! They have great shirts to buy for $40. Don't hesitate to book this trip, it's worth every penny!!!

This was by far the best underwater experience on any of the Islands, (we went on 4 different tours throughout our stay). The overall tour was just fantastic. The crew Captain Ryan (very professional, and runs a tight ship) his mates Fernando (extremely knowledgeable in sea life, the most entertaining one of the crew and an excellent bar tender for the way back home from the excursion. Lack of a better word " life of the party") and finally Mike ( he adds that Salty Dog sea life experience to the whole thing, with light hearted sarcasm for some good laughs). But that is just the crew, for the actual experience underwater, "indescribably beautiful". Bring a camera. (Waterproof, just saying). And if you drop it Fernando is an excellent diver..(first hand experience my Sony action Cam fell off my rig and without hesitation he dove 20 + feet and got it back.
I would just like to to say thanks to those guys for a most memorable adventure.
Al and Carrie.

We thank YOU for allowing us to show you "a most memorable adventure". Your experience is why we love doing what we do. Please be sure to come back and sail with us again!

Take care.

We happen to agree, Chris Y! The VI Cat is a "MUST DO" when visiting St. Thomas! ;) It's great that we offer two totally different tours on the same 54' sailing catamaran. You get to sail and snorkel a beautiful reef, swim with the green sea turtles on our Turtle Cove adventure, then come back for a relaxing evening watching the Harbor Lights sparkle during our buffet dinner cruise. Thank you for your kind words.

Safe travels - Ali

Aren't the resident green sea turtles at Turtle Cove spectacular? Getting to swim alongside them with The VI Cat is an experience that is so remarkable and hopefully a memory that will remain in the forefront of your mind for years to come. Thank you for "highly" recommending our trip Mike S. We hope to see you again.

Have Fun!
