Our day on the water could not have been better! Capt Steve took great care of us and took us to some amazing places. Our day started on Tortola where we had a delicious breakfast. Then it was off to 2 snorkel stops, the Indians and the Caves which were just stunning. We made a stop at Sandy Spit, Foxy's... More

BEST day of our vacation! The owner Rick was very accommodating with some special requests and Captain Steve knew the best places to snorkel and visit. He packed a lot in for the day and we had a blast! The boat ride was very comfortable and fun too! They made the perfect day so easy! Thank you Lion In Da... More

Capt. Rick took our family as well as another family out on his boat and it was one of the best chartered boat experiences we had had in many years. He knew the history of all the areas around and showed us places that we had never seen even though we had been going to the area for many years.... More

Wonderful tour of US and Brittish Virgin Islands. The boat was the perfect size and rode the choppy water very nicely. Captain Craig has great knowledge of the area and took us where ever we wanted to go. I would highly recommend them.

Yes, we are from Cape Cod, and avid boaters. We have chartered in the BVI's several times, but this Captain wanted to relax, so Captain Craig took the helm. What a great day we had with Lion in Da Sun. We were traveling with tough to please teenagers, but LIDS and Captain Craig had them fully engaged soon after we... More

We spent the day on the water with Captain Rick, who could not have been more accommodating. Started skirting the island of St. John, visited a hot snorkeling spot, lunch on the infamous "Willy T", ended at Jost van Dyke. This is a good way to see several views of the USVI and BVI in one day with someone who... More

We met Craig and his wife at happy hour on the first day of our trip. We ended up hanging until the wee hours. When we found out that Craig was a charter boat captain, we knew that we had to go out on the water with them. We ended up spending Thanksgiving with Craig & his wife on one... More

We booked Lion In Da Sun for a group of friends/couples. Rick was easy to deal with from first contact and very accommodating! Not only did he know a ton about the history of the islands and the best beaches/snorkel spots, but he also seemed to know all the locals that we ran into. He truly made the day about... More

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

Went on the greatest charter boat experience ever!!! This charter was worth every single penny! Captain Craig gave us the best adventure without any thought process from us! 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
