Full Day Trips

Full Day Trips

Our full day trips leave the Coral Bay Dinghy Dock at 9 AM with a return time of 3:30-4 depending on your day.  We have no set “schedule” as many charter businesses do for your time on the water.  We instead listen to what is important to you and customize every charter based on that.  Want to sit at Jost Van Dyke in White Bay for the day?  Done.  Want to focus more on snorkeling and seeing what’s underneath the ocean? We have you covered.  Prefer to avoid customs and explore St. John from the water?  We can take you to stunning destinations accessible only by boat.  Want to learn more about the island? Check out our new St. John Uncovered tour (read on below)!  Since our charter agenda is customized to you as well, this gives us the flexibility to change the plan on a moments’ notice if your desire changes after you’ve been to a couple destinations.

  With our captain’s decades of experience captaining in the Virgin Islands we have extensive knowledge to pool from to help you if you want assistance with your decisions.  There are a vast array of potential destinations, both hidden and popular destinations and we will do our best to help you get the most out of your day.  We have definitely done some interesting things over the years to accommodate our guest requests!  So, come on aboard, and let’s go have some fun!

Want to learn more about the island you love?

ST.  JOHN: UNCOVERED TOUR

St. John is not only a beautiful island but also one with an incredibly rich, diverse, and often unknown history.  Her past is full of compelling events, with countless lives and ways of life which are now but echoes, leaving so many stories begging to be told.   We have been passionate about St. John history for years upon years, voraciously learning all we could and are so excited to now blend our love for history with our love of the sea.  Join us for something different, something fun, something interesting, something deeper… St. John: Uncovered.

What does the Uncovered tour “cover” so to speak?

Throughout the course of the day, we will circumnavigate St. John on our 26 foot Glacier Bay Power Cat and venture through history as old as the Tainos (700 BC) to more modern history.  We will show you the sites of major events like the St. John Slave Revolt of 1733 to little known interesting facts about the island.  From accounts of power struggles, an incredible slave rebellion, corruption, hurricanes, droughts, pirates, Tainos, shipwrecks, privateers, Emancipation, occupations, St. John’s position in comparison to the other islands, a varied economy, and so much more, there is an abundance of history on our small island…

Will we still snorkel?

Of course!

Where is the information from?

Colin and I have done and continue to do massive amounts of research to make sure that what we are telling you is accurate information.  Examples of some of our sources include published graduate work, Danish archives, local archives, local libraries, ships’ records, verified internet sources (for example: St. John Historical Society, VINP, Vintage Virgin Islands, and many more), public domain information, books, out of print books we have had to hunt down, personal interviews, personal records shown to us, and so much more.  Some of our information is information which will never be published but it is authentic information we are authorized to share.  We have no interest in perpetuating folklore or misinformation, as the accurate information is incredible on it’s own.

A little background… Captain Colin has always been in love with history, it is just his way. Colin lived on an all wooden 80 year old gaff rigged ketch, which he restored, since 2005.  I (Leah, Colin’s wife) have always had the same historical passion, and when I met Colin, our shared love of the sea and history bonded us instantly.   From the beginning of our relationship, we have always read anything we could about St. John history.  Fast forward from many years ago to now, and our hobby turned into a passion and we want to bring this to others.  We did lose the beautiful gaff rigged ketch, but we have taken on the restoration of another.  One that so many know and love dearly, as do we, S/V Breath.   Built on the East End of St. John, Breath was handcrafted, sailed and chartered by Dorothy and Peter Muilenberg for years.   The owners who bought Breath from Peter and Dorothy wanted the best for the boat and knew we’d lost Buxom.  They also knew how much Breath and the Muilenbergs meant to Colin, as he had captained her for around a decade before FlyAway.  We are so thankful to be given Breath after losing our boat to Irma and are excited to bring a traditional boat back to Coral Bay.
