Our BVI Power Boat Charter Reviews
Best day in the BVI! I could not recommend Captain Phil and Rosie more! We were able to see so many islands on our day with them- we went to the Bath’s, Cooper Island, The Willy T and more! Captain Phil’s stories were some of my favorite parts. If you go to BVI you need to spend a day with them!
The BVIs are one of the most stunning places in the world, and there is no better way to see them than by the water. Sun, sea, beaches and some of the best snorkelling around. Key to getting the most of of this is the right boat, and the right knowledge. With Capt Phil and Rosie you get both. He's lived in the BVI for decades, working exploring the waters for all that time. It's this vast knowledge that will take your vacation to the next level. With his vast scuba experience he knows under-the-sea extensively. For novices, it's a good news, as he knows the snorkelling sites to go to. I saw turtles, and octopus and more fish than I can name. Go to the BVI's, and boat with Phil and Rosie Every day is improved by seeing a dolphin!!!
We returned home yesterday after a wonderful cruise week! Our day with (Antilles Power Boats) and Captain Phil was the highlight of our trip, by far!!
Professional and personable! Definitely a highlight of our trip! Both Rosie and Captain Phil were happy to answer our questions before booking so we felt confident that they were the right choice. They definitely were! Rosie welcomed us on the cruise ship dock and walked us a short distance to the boat. Nice comfortable boat, new snorkel equipment and pool noodles to just float. Even though we had some pretty big waves we felt very safe with Captain Phil at the helm. They were very accommodating and eager to make sure we all had an amazing day. Took us to lots of different spots, picked up supplies for us, guided our inexperienced snorkeler and helped out with our 8 month old granddaughter. Phil was very knowledgeable about the area and shared interesting history and stories. Enjoyed sharing the day with Rosie and Captain Phil and would definitely recommend them!
Captain Phil and Rosie took us on an adventure of a lifetime! We were scheduled for a different charter and had to re-schedule something else at the last minute. Rosie and Phil saved they day!! They were such great hosts and very knowledgeable, making sure that we were all happy and having fun the entire time. The places they took us were spectacular (private beaches, snorkeling caves, and even a floating bar/restaurant). We could not have asked for a better day...it was truly the highlight of our entire trip!
