    Our main captain, Captain Tony is born and raised in St. Thomas and has over 25 years of experience navigating the waters of the Virgin Islands. Our charter boat is a top of the line 35' Intrepid that is super comfortable while cruising and quite roomy so your trip will never feel crowded. We can accommodate up to 12 passengers - if your party exceeds 12 guests, we can partner with one of our fellow charter companies to run your trip in tandem - there is no limit to the size of your group with this type of excursion. While our departure time is flexible, we recommend an early start to get ahead of the crowds. The itinerary for your charter is completely customizable - whatever the group is interested in doing, we will do our best to make it happen. Our captains come with a wealth of local knowledge. They are here to help plan your perfect day and give you the unique experience you are looking for. When you board our boat the captain will discuss necessary paperwork and boating safety.

Local MOcean was an amazing experience! Captain Tony was a great tour guide and knew so many great spots to take my group. Awesome snorkeling, with a relaxing ending at a taco barge for drinks and the best fresh tacos.

We could not recommend Captain Tony and Local MOcean enough. Tony was born and raised on Island, so naturally he was knowledgeable and passionate about everything there was to see and do around the USVI. He made us comfortable from the moment we stepped on board Salt & Pepper.

Thank you Elizabeth for the wonderful review. It was a pleasure taking you all around and showing all of the great places we have to explore here in the USVI. You came at one of my favorite times of the year here. October is the end of hurricane season and there are no crowds, light winds and calm seas which make the best days for exploring out on the water. All the best to you guys and please come and visit us again soon! Cheers Captain Tony

I would give Tony 10 stars if I could, he was awesome and the day was a highlight of our trip. We were referred to him from a family member who had been on the boat with him a month or so ago, and so glad I listened to his advice. We are a family of 5 with all different levels
