Captain Ryan

USCG certified captain

Ryan was born and raised in sunny Florida. A true water baby, he started swimming at two months old. His college internship from Florida State brought him to the Virgin Islands, where he fell in love with the island life. The rest is history. When Ryan isn't showing his guests around on the water, he can be found underneath the surface. He is a SCUBA instructor, proficient spear fisherman and naturalist who loves sharing his knowledge of the sea.

Mate Jen

Resident Bears Fan

Jen grew up on a corn farm in Illinois, just about as far away from the ocean as possible, but that didn't stop her from hearing its siren song. Following her first visit  in her teens, she knew she would live in the Caribbean someday. After a particularly cold Chicago winter and years of being confined inside the tan walls of a cubicle, she bought a one-way ticket to St. Thomas. She got her Dive Master certification, learned to sail and now can only dream of fresh sweet corn.

Facebook Review: (5 out of 5 Star Rating)

Can't say enough great things about Ryan or his boat! We had an amazing day. Ryan is a fantastic captain, and his boat is pristine. Highly recommend his service if you are considering a day on the water in the USVI's or BVI's. 

We had several people, on multiple boats (different companies) traveling together, and Ryan worked hard to accommodate all. His flexibility and service was above and beyond. 

When it was just the Dad's we had a great guys experience. When the kids joined, it turned to a fantastic family adventure. Ryan went out of the way to make sure the kids were safe and had a great time!

Additionally, he was very knowledgeable, with lots of interesting stories about the history and lore of the islands. 

Final word... this is a great choice if your looking for a fun day on the water.

My family spent our last day in the islands aboard the 9 Lives, snorkeled the caves, jumped from the top deck at the Willy T after lunch, killed some pain at the Soggy Dollar before finishing our day with cliff jumping. Ryan knew the spots to go, the people to see and the history of the area. He took great care of us, awesome ride on his boat, tunes were flowing. A trip we will never forget!!! I highly recommend him to all, you will not be disappointed.

Great day with Ryan on our vacation in February.   He was accessible, personable, professional and reasonable.    He gave us some ideas for a good day but worked in our own plans as well.   He is a true pro and knows his way around....and everywhere we went, people knew him.  That made it easy at customs, the Willie T and Jost.     His boat is pristine, safe and economical.   Ryan is always a step ahead with an idea and flexible along the way.    Great day out on the water.   We will call again next time we are down in the USVI.
