Our Boat “BlackBeard”


Custom BVI & USVI Boat Charters of the Best Beaches, Beach Bars & Snorkeling Spots in the U.S. & British Virgin Islands!


It’s the Journey, not just the Destination…And it’s a Better Journey on Our Boat!

Having the right boat makes all the difference in the world and we offer a St. Thomas Boat charter experience designed to give you the ultimate in comfort and fun! Black Beard was selected for her “creature comforts,” featuring fully upholstered chaise lounge seating up front for the absolute best views of the Islands! There is truly no better way to see the beautiful beaches and cays as they appear before you in these seats. Black Beard features comfortable, wrap-around seating in the back that is great for conversations. There are plenty of drink holders right where you want them.

“Black Beard’s” Amenities

You get very few vacation days in life, right? Well, we think the days you spend with us should be some of the most memorable of your life! That’s why we selected Black Beard, so that you will enjoy the stunning scenery and you have a great time getting there! Black Beard is truly one of a kind on the islands!

Black Beard is a STEP ABOVE what you’ll typically find from other Virgin Islands boat rental companies, with her own, very distinctive personality!

Black Beard is family-friendly day cruiser. She’s a roomy boat designed for your total comfort. At 32′, there’s plenty of room for everyone to not just sit, but literally lounge around! Her size and width also makes the boat more stable in the water, providing a smoother ride. Plus, our family boat is loaded with creature comforts to ensure your day is a Pirate’s Paradise!

Black Beard has an open bow with fully upholstered seating, which means you can ride up front and see the gorgeous scenery in front of you–and believe us, it’s breathtaking! Her fully upholstered, soft seating means that everyone on board rides in comfort, no matter where you sit.

Two big engines have plenty of power to easily, quickly and economically get you where you want to go!

There’s even a fresh water shower where you can hose yourself off after getting out of the water!

Black Beard comes equipped with a cooler to keep your drinks icy cold, and you can bring along your favorite “adult beverages.”

Whoever said “don’t rock the boat” clearly wasn’t cruising with us…because this boat rocks! She has full range speakers throughout the boat, with AM/FM and Bluetooth. Listen to our on-board eclectic compilation of island tunes and chart toppers from most eras…or bring your own Bluetooth music device to listen to your favorite tunes and make the whole day a party!

Black Beard includes the following

Safety Features

Along with all the usual Coast Guard required things, like flotation devices, first aid kits and flares…we also have a VHF radio & chart plotter.

Complimentary Snorkeling Gear for Everyone!

When you spend the day aboard Black Beard you’re welcome to use our snorkel gear at no extra charge! We have gear in all sizes–even for the little ones! It’s one less thing to worry about–or pay for–and it’s yours to enjoy while aboard!

Want To Snorkel With Turtles, Rays & Tropical Fish?

Black Beard has a fresh water shower by the swim step to rinse off the salt water. We also provide free snorkel gear – mask, snorkel, and fins – so you can see all the colorful coral, tropical fish, sea turtles, rays and maybe even a reef shark or two.

The St. Thomas Charter Boat You Choose Makes All the Difference In Your Trip!

While there are many Virgin Islands boat charter companies that take passengers to the BVIs and USVIs, they almost always use a center console “fishing” style boat. However, we wanted to give people a better option in their choice of boat. So we shipped Black Beard over from the mainland.

Black Beard is very different from any other boat in the islands, and we think you’ll love the extra “creature comforts,” including forward-facing lounge seating up front, fully padded and upholstered seats and sides, swim steps, and a lot more.  Most of the Virgin Islands Boat Rental companies can take you to the same places…we’d just like to take you there in comfort and style on Black Beard!

Best Day On The Islands!

We had the best time sailing around the BVI's with Captain Arran. The entire day was full of amazing island scenery and the most beautiful beaches in the world. Our captain was so friendly and fun and made sure we had an incredible time. Highly recommended.

3 Generations All Had A Blast

We did this trip last November. It was great. The kids in our party were 9 and 13.  We gave Arran a list of places that were must sees and let him pick the snorkeling spots. The elders on the trip were my husband and self, both 65. We went to the caves, Willie Ts, soggy dollar bar, stopped in tortola.

Just Awesome

Just got back yesterday from a terrific day on Pirates Paradise Adventures. Our captain for the day was Arran and he was wonderful. He has lived here 30 years and knows St. Thomas, St. John and the British Virgin Islands like the back of his hand. The day was magnificent this is a can't miss!  Would go again in a minute.
