Work with the Island Roots team to help plan your St. John private charter!

private charter

Our captains have years of experience (some even a lifetime!) around St. John and the U.S. Virgin Islands. They’ll be able to provide valuable insight to your private charter. We know all the best places to go, things to do, and spots to eat and drink! 


Swim with the turtles at Maho Bay, drift snorkel Watermelon Cay, lunch at Lime Out, soak up the sun at Salt Pond Beach… 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.



“STAY LOCAL” and explore the best of the U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS

Snorkeling: The USVI boasts over 18,000 acres of protected submerged lands within the National Park and National Monument waters resulting in some of the best snorkeling and diving destinations in all of the Caribbean. Most of which are only accessible by boat!

Food/Drink: Quirky, indulgent and fun water based establishments are scattered about the USVI… Some options include: Fine dining with Lovango Beach Club and Resort, floating tacos & cocktails at LIME OUT, New York style pizza from PIZZA PI, beachside lunch with ZOZO’s at Caneel Bay.

Adventure: Visit the historic ruins of the Reef Bay Plantantion, beach comb for hidden natural treasures, take a leap from the cliff ledge on Thatch Cay or maybe try your hand at snaring a Caribbean Lobster!

Leisure: Swim, soak and float your day away. No schedule, no stress and no reason to worry!

A “typical day” might include swimming, snorkeling, sightseeing, beaching, cliff jumping, lunch, hiking, fishing, history, story telling, music, dancing and more.


St. John’s British neighbor (still closed to day charter activity) is a close, convenient, and unforgettable boater’s paradise! Secluded beaches, superb snorkeling, floating restaurants and exotic beach bars are yours for the choosing. With virtually unlimited possibilities, you’ll have no problem creating the best day of your vacation (once they reopen).
