About
All of our private charters are unique and customized to the interests of the guests... from bird watchers, to sunbathers, snorkelers, photographers, divers, cocktail connoisseurs, food enthusiasts, folks seeking the “best of” the islands to casual fun boaters just looking to just enjoy the breeze and some time on the water.  A “typical day” might include swimming, snorkeling, sightseeing, beaching, cliff jumping, lunch, hiking, history, story telling, music, dancing and more. Guests are welcome to visit the popular spots people often talk about, mentioned in guidebooks, on social media, etc... but also encouraged to explore tons of lesser visited places that have yet to go “mainstream.”

A great sunset cruise even with clouds
Captain Ryan turned a cloudy evening into lots of fun. He even offers to bring us back early if it rained or was too uncomfortable. He took us to 2 snorkel areas where we saw many varieties of fish, turtles, stingrays( even a spotted sting ray) and squid. It was also fun exploring around a sunken sailboat! The kids also loved jumping off the boat into the water after they tired of snorkeling. The clouds parted and we saw a great sunset.
Afterwards, Ryan called and told us my husband had left his prescription snorkels on the boat. He walked over to a restaurant in Cruz Bay to return them to us! Talk about customer service and caring. A great trip!

Perfecto!
May 2021
We just can’t rave enough about our Island Roots charter adventure!!! First of all, the team at Roots was so easy to work with - they got back to us immediately and scheduling our cruise was super simple! The boat was spacious and spotless! Captain Max was awesome and took good care of us. I love the fact that we could bring our own wine, beer and snacks. It was a great mix of touring the beautiful coves of St. John and snorkeling near Scott Beach (and hanging out with a ton of turtles! ) We grabbed pizzas at the Pizza Pi boat and watched the sunset! Heavenly! Our family would highly recommend island roots to anyone looking for a beautiful, private fun-filled cruise! Next time we’re doing a full day! Thank you!

Super fun evening!
May 2021 • Friends
What a fun afternoon and evening with Captain Max! He took us all over the area, found a great snorkeling area with sea turtles. Pointed out several beautiful beaches and landmarks. Max was so friendly and a lot of fun. He suggested pizza pi which is a floating pizza boat and we ordered pizza to go. Such a beautiful afternoon! I would highly recommend this company!

The best snorkel and sunset
May 2021 • Friends
We loved our trip with Ryan! He was a great guide and made sure we got the experience we wanted. Snorkeling was great - saw a mom and baby sea turtles, a couple stingrays, and beautiful fish! We made a stop at pizza pi - highly recommend this! And ended with the perfect spot to watch the sunset.

Our family of adults loved it! Thanks to Ryan for everything!

Great boat charter
Apr 2021 • Friends
We had a fantastic cruise at sunset. Originally we had scheduled an all day cruise but the weather was on and off rain all day so they offered a refund or another day. We brought our own beverages. We did some snorkeling and saw 2 eagle rays. Would definitely book again

We had the most amazing time with Island Roots! The sunset sail was GORGEOUS and our captain, Scotty, was so much fun! We got beautiful views of the island and were able to snorkel at a few spots too. Our family had such a blast and we would definitely recommend!

Golden Hours
Booking of this charter and all communication was done with ease through Jason. Our group of 10 loved everything about our time on the water. We were picked up promptly at the dock in Cruz Bay. Our captain was great and very willing to accommodate our requests while insuring our safety. First we headed to the south side to do some snorkeling. We were given a good amount of time to explore the area before getting back on board. From there we headed to Pizza Pi for some delicious NY style pizza. Our captain called in our order ahead so there was practically no wait once we arrived in Christmas Cove. After some time relaxing we headed towards Scott Beach ( per our request) for once final chance to snorkel. At that time the sun was sinking in the sky and everything was beautiful!
Not one of us was ready for our time on the water to be over. It was definitely one of the highlights of our time on St.John.
I highly recommend Island Roots and look forward to booking another trip (or 2😉) next time we are on St John.
