Everyone likes to island hop, right? Well there’s a new boat available for charter called Magnum VI. We had the opportunity to take a cruise to the BVIs with them on Saturday, so we can say firsthand that it’s a pretty amazing boat. It was very spacious, comfortable and Captain Connor was great. Here are the details…
You can explore the beaches and surrounding cays of St. John or nearby British Virgin Islands of Jost Van Dyke, Tortola, or Virgin Gorda on Magnum VI’s 32’ Ocean Pro, which underwent a total renovation in 2014. Its brand new padded port and starboard seating offered a comfortable ride as we hopped from stop to stop, while the huge padded sun deck was an ideal spot for soaking up the sweet Caribbean sun (especially after a long afternoon in White Bay). For those of you looking for some shade, it has a large Bimini top, so there’s a comfy spot for everyone.
The boat has a custom JL Audio stereo system, so you’ll have great tunes to entertain you throughout the day. Its swim platform and ladder make getting in and out of the water easy (again, even after a long afternoon at White Bay 🙂 ), and its fresh water shower is perfect for a refreshing post-snorkel rinse. Magnum VI pretty much has everything you need for a fun, comfortable day on the water.
The boat is captained by Conner Masterson who is a St. John native. Growing up here, he gained firsthand extensive knowledge of the U.S. and British Virgin Islands so he’s a great guide out on the water.
Magnum, VI can take up to 10 guests. The cost for a full day charter is $950 and includes fuel, snorkel gear, water, ice and the use of a GoPro camera. (You will have to bring your own memory card or purchase one onboard.) A half-day charter costs $650. Magnum, VI is also available for two hours sunset cruises. That costs $450.
