We had a great day sailing around St. John with Rick from Lion In Da Sun. We had called around to a lot of the other boat companies, and Rick's prices and his flexibility sold us on Lion In Da Sun. There were 6 adults and we really wanted a boat with some sun coverage. Rick brought the perfect boat.... More

Every detail so perfectly planned out based on our likes! Snorkeling spots like swimming with turtles, underwater shipwreck, and large schools of small fish and lunch and drinks. Captain Craig was the... More

Our day sail was piloted by Craig. Craig gave us a ton of local information, did everything we wanted to do, and tailored our entire day to address our needs and wishes. Although we booked an 8-hour sail, at one point I asked him about the time and he said not to worry, the experience was the important part of... More

The best time! He took a little extra time exploring the island from the ocean after I mentioned "The night of the silent drums". Best captain ever!

We are deeply appreciative of Rick and Kevin making our anniversary revisit to SJI and the BVI's so enjoyable. We have used Lion in Da Sun in years past and wanted the first class service and trusted boating again! Kevin was our Captain! Our first trip was back to Sandy Spit after customs check in! Sandy Spit is we're our... More

We have just returned from our yearly trip to St. Thomas. While we were there, we took a trip on Lion in da Sun with Captain Rick. This was our 6th straight year that we have been out with Captain Rick. We enjoy taking this trip because it allows us to go places and do things that we can’t do... More
