Sailing/Snorleling in St. Croix

Going to St. Croix in May. We want to go on a full day of sailing/snorkeling to Buck Island. Any recommendations? The only one I have seen is Big Beards which sounds like a great time. Just wanted to compare to others. Thank You!

I believe that Mile Mark Charters offers both motor and sail trips to Buck Island. We used them many years ago and had a good experience.

Was just in St Croix last week, and we used Mile Mark Watersports. We did just a half day snorkel on one of their power boats. They did a great job, and I'd recommend them to anyone. Here's their website:

The snorkeling was excellent, the small remote beach was heaven....enjoy.

We went with Big Beards and it was lovely. They have a beautiful catamaran which is roomy and quiet. We passed Mile Mark power boats which did not look as accommodating.

You can't go wrong with either of these choices - both have been in business a very long time, which says something. I've been out on both and enjoyed each trip.

The very best sail to Buck Island is with Llewellyn Charters. Llewellyn Westerman is the stuff folklore is made of...wonderful local color who has been doing the tour longer than my family has been going to St. Croix--more than 30 years! Not "touristy"; very fun. He's the very best.
