Top Shelf Snorkeling Trip
It is always wonderful to find someone who loves what they're doing and does it well. That was our experience with Capt Wilson on the Big Blue. Our group is into snorkeling big time and we had an incredible day out on the water. At each stop, we were given a short briefing about the area . After each spot we all picked the captain's brain about the different fish and excitedly flipped through his Fish ID books pointing out the things we'd seen. There was no rush, no pressure and It was tons of fun.
No exaggeration - the best snorkeling day-trip!
Captain Wilson delivers with his in-depth knowledge of the snorkeling spots among the many cays surrounding USVI and BVI. He completely tailored the trip to our interests and pace. He took us to several spots where we were the only snorkelers in the water and the only boat within sight. Before we even got in the water, he told us what kinds of fish and coral to expect. He was very safety conscious as well. We chose this trip over others because we wanted the boat exclusively to ourselves and because ALL of the reviews we read were positive. We were not disappointed! A day on Big Blue with Captain Wilson will be the highlight of your vacation!
Best day trip in Virgin Islands
I've taken Big Blue excursions a few times. If you're considering going on an excursion (and you should be considering it) definitely use Big Blue. When thinking about an excursion, there are two key considerations: the captain and the boat. Those facets of the excursion can make or break the trip, and Big Blue has the best captain and boat.
Best day of the whole vacation!
We did the day sail earlier this month. We met Captain Bradley at Red Hook. He was on time and in a good mood.
Great day on the water with Big Blue
We recently took a trip with Capt. Wilson(Big Blue) while in St. Thomas for the day. We arrived in St. Thomas aboard the Freedom of the Seas. During our day trip (4 hous) with Capt. Wilson, we went to 3 different spots to snorkel. Each spot was unique. We saw a variety of corals, sea fans and tropical fish. At our last spot, we were able to see at least a dozen green turtles. Our kids (ages 8 and 11) absolutely loved it, as did my wife and I. We will all remember this trip for a long time. Capt. Wilson was very knowledgable about the area and told some interesting stories related to the areas where we were at. He was great with our kids.
Beautiful & Relaxing
The previous reviews have said it all. We as well enjoyed Big Blue. It was the best thing we have done in the VI in 3 years. Captain Wilson was wonderful and kind. The boat was comfortable, clean and roomy. We saw wonderful things at a leisurely pace. We felt like we were alone in paradise. My only regret is that we did not book two days! Next year we definitely will.
The Most Perfect Day -- Thank you Big Blue
My husband and I had never been to the USVI and we only had two days. There is so much to do that we were really struggling with all the options. That's when my husband found Big Blue Excursions. Realizing we had little time and wanted to feel that we'd really seen the islands...they were able to customize a day that we could have only dreamt of. The Captain had us provide our passport information the day prior so that he could handle customs for us and we were able to see not only ST John and St Thomas but Tortola and BVI as well. The day of the trip, we were picked up at the hotel dock so we didn't need to ferry or taxi anywhere. From there we went snorkling at a private island where the coral was still untouched from the masses leaving the cruise ships. It was fantastic swimming amongst fish and against coral in warm clear water in the quiet ofthe morning.
Big Blue Excursions a Must
Five out of Five stars for Big Blue Excursions! Our group had such a great day touring around on Big Blue with Captain Wilson that we scheduled a 2nd day of adventure for later during our vacation week. We highly recommend a day (or more) on Big Blue. Captain Wilson picked us up at the National park dock in the main harbor of St. John and we were off for a great tour of the northside beaches by water. Then off to the BVIs for a day of snorkeling, island and bar hopping. Don't miss the beauty of Sandy spit and the other small islands around Jost Van Dyk. Our captain knew right where to take us for a postcard beautiful setting. We had a fully stocked cooler and snacks a-plenty to keep us fueled and fortified for a fantastic day-long adventure. He even provided us with an underground camera so we could capture the beautiful scenes and landscapes underwater (as well as the antics of some of our less experienced snorkelers!). Our thanks to Captain Wilson for two fantastic days. We look forward to returning soon.
