After several months of planning and work setting up this company, Wahoo Boat Charters is now open for business! After a 2.5 month wait, I received my U.S. Coast Guard Captain's license. After that it was off to DPNR to get the boat over to commercial use, insurance and National Park Permit!
The website is up and running at www.wahooboatcharters.com
We are also on TripAdvisor and Yelp!
One of our favorite trips is the Circumnavigate St. John. On this trip we leave St. Thomas and head over to St. John across Pillsbury Sound. We go by the Caneel Bay Resort passing by Hawksnest, Trunk and Cinnamon Bays right through Fungi Passage to Water Lemon Cay, where there is some of the best snorkeling in the USVI.
It is now off the East end of STJ and into the Mangroves of St. John where there are a ton of starfish, coral, fish and even saw some squid! This is where you will find a ton of juvenile fish and even a sea turtle!
After a snorkel there, it is off to Hansen's Bay and the Angels Rest floating bar for some great rum punch!
We pull up anchor here and head over to Booby Rock, my second favorite place to snorkel.
We then head along the south side of St. John, right through Little and Great St. James Island back to the Compass Point Marina!
This trip is only $900 for up to 6 passengers and it includes captains fee and fuel!
We have a ton of other trips, 1/2 day and full day to meet your needs, starting at $500.
One of the other trips I am offering is a Sunset Cruise with Dinner on St. John! Here we will sail out of the marina and enjoy the sunset. We will then head over to St. John, where I will drop you off in Cruz Bay where you can choose from dozens of great restaurants. Once you finish desert, we head back across the sound taking in the lights of St. Thomas. Once we are at the entrance of the bay to the marina, we shut off the motors and take in the stars as we drift into the marina. I even bring my IPad with the Starwalker app so you can see the constellations!
I am also doing transfers to St. John, so that if you arrive at the St. Thomas airport, I will pick you up and drive over to the marina, where we will board the boat for a cruise over to St. John and dropped off at the National Park dock in Cruz Bay!
I hope you take the time to come aboard so I can show you the islands from the water!
I am excited to get this business going and I am still practicing real estate too!
