Generally Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ about FlyAway Charters, St John
- What is the process of clearing customs between USVI and BVI?
Currently we are not providing trips to the BVI.
- Do you provide trips to Lime Out?
Absolutely! All of our trips go to Lime Out! While we have a popular two hour option, we also offer half days and full days which include snorkeling, sightseeing and more+ Lime Out. The snorkeling on the East End is absolutely superb and not to be missed, so we highly recommend considering one of those options. We’ve been on the water here for more than 24 years, so we know where all the good spots are and love to share our passion for the ocean with our guests!
- If we go to Lime Out, will we get wet?
If you would like to sit at Lime Out please be prepared to swim and get wet.
- Do you provide snorkel gear?
We have a lot of great name brand gear aboard but we always recommend going to get fitted for gear from a rental spot, then you know you have a good fit. Some places to rent are: Coral Bay Adventures (where you can also find our MERCH!), Busy Bee Watersports, then in Cruz Bay, Just Beach in Mongoose Junction and Beach Bum in Wharfside.
- Do you do scuba diving?
While we do not provide scuba charters, our dear friends at Busy Bee Charters do! They are also out of Coral Bay and can take you scuba diving to some beautiful locations! Not certified yet? They can take care of that too! Check them out: Busy Bee Charters

Towels, environmentally friendly sunscreen (no aerosol sunscreen please), cameras and extra T-shirts are essential but you can also bring special drinks and snacks. Rash guards or UV protection shirts are recommended.
- What will be provided?
We will have an ice chest with water and ice, please feel free to bring along any drinks or snacks. Snorkel gear, defog.
- What is the legal drinking age?
18 years old. Note: While an 18 year old on island can buy, order, drink alcohol they can not transport bottles of alcohol back to the US with them.
- Where will we go?
That’s the beauty of it – so many of the spots we will take you don’t even have names. But two things for us are key – to listen to you about what is important to you about what you’d like to see/do and also take you to remote, off the beaten path, hard to reach absolute TREASURES of the Virgin Islands.
Come visit us soon….there is so much to explore and adventures and fun to have!
Have a question not listed?
Currently the USVI is pretty much “open”, with some mild restrictions and some private businesses asking for masks to be used. However, we do ask that you are respectful of our community, population and healthcare facilities. If you feel ill or have been exposed to someone who does, please take the proper precautions. The USVI Travel Portal is still in effect, and either a vaccination card or test results must be uploaded for travel to the USVI.
We also recommend following the blog, News of St. John, to keep up with both current information on a daily basis and more.
