This was a great snorkeling tour! They took us out to the first beach on Buck Island (about an hour), where they did a quick snorkeling how-to. Next was on to the reef for the real action. We stayed there for about an hour. Finally, we stopped at a beach on St Croix for a couple hours, where they cooked... More

The experience of being on Buck Island speaks for itself - phenomenal! We took the 1/2 day trip, we booked it through our hotel, so I did not have any direct contact with them, so I have no review on that. The trip itself is fine. It's a typical crowded boat that takes about 20 mintues to get to the... More

Did the full-day experience and we had a blast! The crew, Gab (captain) Philip, Tommy & Tito were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. They were wonderful with the young children onboard and patient with those of us who were inexperienced with snorkeling. Will do it again on our next trip back to the island.

We would highly recommend this trip to anyone staying on St. Croix! Our trip was a full day sail on the Renegade that included lessons on the beach, snorkeling, and a delicious barbecue afterwards. We appreciated the laid back atmosphere, the captain and first mate were both very friendly and great at their jobs. Buck Island is definitely a must... More

Mike and Allison were our captain and first mate. Both hustled, both attentive, friendly and engaging. There were no children on our boat, all adults. Beach side visit had poor visibility on the day we went, but the lagoon side didn't disappoint! On ride back to dock, we passed over a sea turtle! So pay attention to the water even... More

I called Big Beards looking to book a trip later that week to Buck Island. The gentleman was helpful and let me know they needed at least 6 people to register before they could guarantee a trip and advised that I register to get the process started. He also stated my credit card would not be charged until the trip... More

We booked this trip on recommendation from where we were staying. 5 Stars!! The crew was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Christine was very helpful with our 2 16 year old daughters and instructing them on how their gear should fit and how to snorkel, in general. When we went to the coral reef, her and Tito stayed in the water... More

Mike was the captain, Allison and Tom were the deck mates. All three were incredible. My daughter was a little nervous and Mike was able to bring her to ease. Allison was kind enough to take her around on a ring which was amazing! We took the half day trip to Buck Island and enjoyed beautiful weather, lots of amazing... More

We went on the Buck Island tour as a large group, as a part of a wedding and we all had a blast. The crew were so personable and knowledgeable. The snorkeling was amazing and we saw so many beautiful creatures. I'd highly recommend this tour with Big Beard's Adventure Tours.

We arrived to St. Croix on our Cruise ship and Big Beards arranged for our transportation over to the dock. The crew on the catamaran were terrific. They really made sure we had a great time and spent time with my son to make sure he was comfortable snorkeling. The snorkeling at Buck Island was some of the best I... More
