We can accommodate groups of up to 12 passengers. We supply a cooler, drinking water, snorkeling gear, a fresh water shower, a professional captain, and a boat that meets the highest expectations for performance and fuel efficiency.
Lion In Da’ Sun is a 26′ Twin Vee power catamaran. The boat’s two hulls allow her to ride more smoothly through the water than most traditional powerboats. She is powered by two 150hp Tohatsu engines giving her passengers more time to explore the Virgin Islands’ reefs and beaches and less travel time between islands.
Our captain can help you plan your day of adventure, but ultimately where you go and what you do is up to you when you charter Lion In Da’ Sun. Many of our guests enjoy visiting the British Virgin Islands – the most popular being Virgin Gorda, Jost van Dyke, Norman Islands and Sandy Cay. Circumnavigating St. John is also very popular. We are happy to tailor an excursion that meets your specific vacation plans. Please note that for trips to the BVI, proof of citizenship is required (either a passport or a birth certificate and picture id). Call or email for availability and pricing.
Snorkeling the Virgin Islands…
If you enjoy snorkeling, chartering is a great way to get around the Virgin Islands and see a variety of beautiful coral reefs, plant and sea life. We will provide the snorkel gear and Lion In Da’ Sun’s captain will be happy to assist you in any way with your gear and instruction.
A great snorkeling stop on the way to the British Virgin Islands is between the outer uninhabited islands of Congo and Lovango. In the British Virgin Islands, we recommend “snorkeling “The Indians” stop in at the Willy T – it’s an old sailboat that has been converted into a restaurant and bar.

Explore the VI
The US and British Virgin Islands encompass thousands of individual islands, hundreds of beaches and innumerable snorkeling spots. Fitting everything you want to explore into a single day can be challenging, but let us help by making some suggestions. Most day trips begin either on St. John or St. Thomas.
Beginning in St. Thomas, either at the cruise ship dock in Charlotte Amaile, or from Red hook on the east end, it’s a short ride to scenic St. John. Alternatively, Jost Van Dyke or West End in the BVI are a quick ride to check into customs, then it’s about an hour to The Baths on Virgin Gorda. An around St. John trip is a unique way to see this beautiful island. Because 70% of St. John is National Park, many sights are only accessible by boat. Popular snorkeling spots such as Honeymoon Beach and Waterlemon Cay are excellent morning stops. Either a picnic in a remote bay or a beach side bar for lunch will get you recharged for an afternoon of snorkeling on St. John’s scenic south side.
British Virgin Islands
Jost Van Dyke is a unique island with several excellent harbors to enjoy. Home to Foxy’s beach bar, The Soggy Dollar and the new Taboo beach bar, Jost Van Dyke is an excellent lunch stop with nearby beaches at Sandy Spit and Green Cay. West End, Tortola is a convenient customs check in spot, midway between Jost Van Dyke and Norman Island. On the way to Norman Island, The Indians are a wonderful snorkel stop. Norman Island’s main harbor is The Bight where the floating restaurant “The Willy T,” named after the pirate William Thorton, is a popular lunch stop.
