“We chartered with Sonic for some USVI and BVI exploring. We had the pleasure of having Chris Klein as our Captain and he was great! Made sure everything we were doing and seeing was what we wanted and was very accommodating for a group of 10 with two small children. What an awesome day! We will definitely use Sonic again!

“Captain Tony was an excellent tour guide who not only brought us to the numerous locations we requested to see (the baths at Virgin Gorda, Willie T’s for lunch, snorkeling at the Caves, snorkeling with the turtles, Soggy Dollar for drinks) he also talked about many of the islands and points of interest along the way, giving us lots of historical facts and fun information. Snorkel gear and fins were provided. Fantastic tour. It was one of the best days of my life!

“Captain Chris was the perfect guide taking us on a 32 foot boat across the open channel to various spots off the coast of Saint John. He went just fast enough for the party in front of the boat to really enjoy the thrills but at the same time slowed it up in spots for my 6 year old nephew in the back to feel comfortable… Highly recommended!”

“We had a group of 8 people that ranged in ages from 11 to 75. The kids wanted to snorkel with turtles (They did!), Grandma and Grandpa wanted a gentle ride and a beach to wade in (They got that!) and Mom and Dad wanted coral and lots of fish (Everyone was happy!). Captain Chris was awesome, he had a beautiful boat and customized an itinerary that fit our needs perfectly.”

The entire team at Sonic Charters couldn’t have been more than helpful throughout our entire trip. Easy and quick to respond to emails and get things set up and extremely helpful with our every request… Our full day boat trip captained by Tony was amazing. We were staying on JVD so they picked us up in front of our house on our dock and took a long ride around Tortola stopping in Cane Bay, Virgin Gorda to see the baths, Cooper Island for lunch, snorkeling in the caves and over a shipwreck and one last stop at the famous Willy T’s. Tony was great, Sonic is amazing and we had a blast.

“We had a great day trip w/ our family of five (including two kids in college and one in high school). Captain Arley made great suggestions as we developed a free-form itinerary along the way, keeping things fun and interesting!

“Overall our whole day was exceptional, even when it started raining towards the end of the day – we couldn’t get the smiles off our faces. If we were able we would have booked again to do the BVI. This day is a must as there is far more to do in Saint Thomas besides shopping. When/ if you are booking with Sonic for the day, definitely ask for Chris as your skipper as his knowledge/experience is outstanding and he’s a cool guy.”

We had a great day with Sonic Charters! We were on a cruise with one day in port at St. Thomas, and Sonic Charters made everything fit perfectly. Booking was simple, pick-up from our ship was seamless, lunch of our choice was provided, and the price was very reasonable. Anyone who selects a cattle-call cruise excursion over a personalized charter like this is crazy!… Sonic Charters is a new company and very professional. Service is excellent, thanks to Carrie.”

“Everything was great from the VERY clean boat to lots of knowledge regarding where to go and what to see. The snorkeling gear was nice and new and the captain knew the exact right places to stop. Sonic Charters gets an A+.

We had an amazing day with Sonic Charters! Our captain was great, professional and fun at the same time. And the boat is beautiful, impeccably kept, and it’s comfortable. The day went by way too fast, and we can’t wait to book another trip with Sonic Charters!”

“Had a great day out with friends through Sonic Charters. This was my second trip with them and both were perfect. The captain was super knowledgeable and nice, the boat was immaculate and the sights were beautiful. No complaints!”

“Sonic Charters was the best part of our trip! Our captain was extremely knowledgeable, fun, safe, all of the above. We went to Soggy Dollar bar on Jost Van Dyke for a few hours then went swimming/snorkeling off St. Thomas. Boat was very clean, new, and had speakers for music. Combined with a few drinks, this was the best charter my wife and I have ever done. Highly recommend!”

“We had two amazing days out with Captain Tony. We toured St. John and the BVI. Capt. Tony was so knowledgeable and fabulous with children. My two children have not stopped talking about their favorite day ever (swimming with the sea turtle). Next time we are in St. Thomas sonic charter will be the first part of our vacation we will plan. Thanks for making our vacation perfect.”
