Our boat guide was very accommodating and patient. He maintained excellent manners and made sure we stayed safe in the entire trip. He also has great boat driving skills. I would definitely recommend Island Roots to anyone we know going to visit St. John.

I actually got up the nerve to snorkel. The boat captain was very informative about where we were and had lots of history and stories. I recommend this as a must do experience to see the island.

Even though the weather didn't work with us the entire time, we had such a great experience! Alex, our boat Captain, was very nice and informative on the islands. We were able to do some snorkeling, site see, and my personal favorite was eating at Lime Out! The entire team at Island Roots was phenomenal and very helpful. Thank you for a great experience!

Seeing sea turtles was cool. Our captain Max was very informative and got us to Lime Out at a very good time so we didn’t have a long wait for food.

We had such a wonderful time with Jason at Island Roots. He was informative, funny and professional. We got to see the parts of St. John’s that are not easily accessible by land. We jumped off a huge cliff, snorkeled with turtles and experienced some history. It was an amazing day! I highly recommend this boat ride.

We started day 1 with captain max - he was excellent. Our nine year old quickly felt I’ll from heat rash / sun poisoning. Max gotbus back to shore quickly and safely, instructed where to go for the right medicines. Luckily he recovered by the next day and the management team was more than accommodating in letting us book for the next day, which offered us the most memorable experiences of our 2 week trip. Can’t say enough things about this charter company and our captain, Max.

Fabulous Boating Experience

We had an absolutely fabulous time on our 6-hour boat excursion with Captain Scotty. We circumnavigated St. John and got to stop for lunch at Lime Out floating taco bar. Super touristy, but great food & drinks — definitely a bucket list item. We snorkeled a couple times and got to swim with the turtles, too. Scotty was willing to go and do whatever we wanted. Made the day a true joy to be able to plan our own trip. Plus, he gave lots of interesting info along the way. Would definitely recommend and we’ll absolutely do it again next time.

Amazing experience. Island Roots charter coordinated with Sunshine Daydream charter when we realized that our party was 13 (1 over the coast guard limit for single boat charter). What a blessing in disguise as the two charter companies coordinated seamlessly. We were able to circumnavigate all of St. John's during our day tour. Captain Jason was informative and experienced. He did an excellent job balancing safety with fun. Highly recommend Island Roots. We would go again in a heartbeat. What an amazing way to see the islands!

We’ve been on multiple private excursions. This one was the best by far. Highly recommend. Max was perfect, very experienced and gave us exactly what we asked for. The snorkeling was amazing. When we return we will do this again.
