We really enjoyed this trip. We were picked up at our resort, which was a plus, and driven to Red Hook. We met our tour guide Mr. Charlie who took our lunch order and boarded our ferry to St. John. Once on St. John Mr. Charlie took us all over the Island, stopping to explain native plants and beautiful sights. We feel we really saw the whole island. Lunch was very good and Trunk Bay was amazing, so beautiful. We also saw the National Park, which is so beautiful. At the end of the tour we stopped to do some shopping before heading out to St. Thomas. All in all, a great day. Mr. Charlie and the tour took care of everything.

This trip was the BEST. Charlie was our tour guide and was very passionate about St. John. He explained the history of the island and had us taste plants around the island. The beach ''Trunk Bay'' is HANDS DOWN the nicest beach I have ever seen. The white sand is amazing. There's hardly any rocks in the sand. If I come back, it would definitely be here to St.John!

This was an outstanding day trip. Short comfortable ferry ride to the island giving you a view of many other small islands in the area. The trip was made all the more interesting and fun by Jupiter our amazing guide. He was educational, fun and funny, and very personable, and he seemed to know everyone! He gave us info on the island, the town, the history saw an 1800's sugar mill, the flora and fauna, and the beaches. We got to spend several hours at Trunk Bay which is easily one of the prettiest and comfortable water was perfect tempbeaches in the world and has great beach access snorkeling around a small protected island with lots of fish and other animals. Had lunch at the beach and finished the day with a little shopping at the port. Something for everyone. Highly recommended day trip for all ages.

Great tour. Had Charlie. He was very knowledgeable about St. Johns. We stopped at many locations. He showed us different edible plants and fruits that were on the island. Lunch was very good as well on a private beach. Snorkeling was fun on Trunk Bay. We stayed mostly on St. Thomas so highly recommend if you want to do a day tour of St. John's.
