Business Spotlight: Sonic Charters Expands Offerings with New Boats and BVI Trips 1

Sonic Charters, a family owned and St. Thomas based company, has expanded their fleet and their charter destinations this season just in time for the holidays!  This charter company, established in 2013, was formed by Morgan and Carrie Locke (And named for their pup Sonic!), after they migrated from St. Croix to St. Thomas in 2009.  When they started, Sonic was just a four-year-old pup!  And now their furry friend, and their business, have grown for nearly ten years and Sonic’s namesake company has expanded, in that time, from one boat to six!  And they are venturing into the British Virgin Islands once again as well!
