So much fun!!!

Captain Mike and Nicki were great!! The boat was a perfect size and I loved it compared to a packed catamaran. Nicki helped us find the turtles and gave us great instruction after that. They were very big on safety and I would highly recommend this tour. Our group from Michigan loved it and Captain Mike gave a great tour as we went out and pointed our many St Thomas landmarks. A plus was the beer and rum punch on the way back. Loved it!!

Great day. Captain Mike and Nicki were fantastic. Saw a number of turtles, sting rays, and other colorful fish. Rum punch was yummy.

Great experience! We felt very safe and could tell Captain Mike was an experienced sailor. Had a blast snorkeling, would highly recommend to everyone!!!

The skipper was a very nice, hospitable guy however I feel that there are potentially too many people on a trip for the size of the boat...the area for snorkeling is very busy with other tour boats however we did see the turtles which was very nice...

Hi Emma. Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We take them very seriously. Fury is a US Coast Guard Documented Vessel which is inspected every year for safety and stability. We are certified to take out 25 guests on our Turtle excursion. The day you experienced our boat, we only had 11 guests on board. Not sure what you mean by “potentially too many people”. We were less than 1/2 filled. As far as the busy snorkel area, there were only two other boats at turtle cove that day. I think you May enjoy a private trip aboard Fury. We offer them and can Tailor them to your specific requirements. I’m glad you saw turtles, they are endangered species. I have spoken to the other guests that day and they all agreed it was a fantastic trip. Stay tuned for the reviews. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your cruise.

Captain Mike and Nikki were great! They knew exactly where to take us and were way better than some of the bigger tours out there with us. Would highly recommend!!
