From the moment I started emailing with Jimmy, I could tell this was a class act operation. They were trusting me and allowing us to be flexible in our scheduling as well as where we decided to go when we met on the day we charter. Our Captain Ryan was a delight, he was well versed in the USVI and... More

My wife and I arranged a private charter with Palm Tree and we really enjoyed it. Captain Sarah was very sweet and very accommodating. We let her know we didn't really want to snorkel, but rather just hit beaches and beach bars. Sarah made it happen as we asked, AND when the weather turned a bit cloudy/rainy she even took... More

He took us to three really great snorkeling spots and also to a beach bar for lunch. Ryan was very knowledgeable about the entire area, an excellent boatman, very polite... More

Followed by visits to Smugglers Cove, Cane Garden Bay, and finished up on Jost. Owners are very knowledgeable and accommodating, not to mention fun people too! Best day of your... More

We booked a private Boat Tour and the owners were so easy to work with booking and planning our trip. The owners met us on the beach and introduced us to our Captain Sarah. Sarah helped us fill out customs papers and collected our passports as one of our stops was in the BVI. Sarah was a very good Captain... More
