We came on this trip with the intent to pretty much scuba dive, eat, sleep and repeat!!! Captain Shane was a great sport to have us along since he has never having had scuba divers aboard before. He went above and beyond to make sure we got the experience we were looking for! He took us to all the places we wanted to go, helped with our gear, and made whatever we wanted to do happen.
We had some amazing experiences like diving a couple shipwrecks, doing night dives, and seeing some incredible wildlife (turtles, sharks, stingrays, eels, octopus and a lot more). In total we got to do eight dives in seven days, plus hiking and snorkeling.
One of the highlights of the trip for us was cooking up the lobster, crab, and fish we caught on our underwater adventures. But the biggest thrill of all came when we sunk down for a dive looking for an underwater cave but happened on a family of 3 whales instead. We ended up swimming with them for 30 plus minutes and at times we were not more than 30 feet away. It was unreal and one of those most amazing, once in a lifetime experience you hear about.
The chartered boat was the best way to see the Virgin Islands and Captain Shane’s cooking and his “whatever you want to do” attitude made the whole experience the best way to travel. We feel very spoiled and satisfied.
