About Blue Ocean Booking

Blue Ocean Booking is operated by husband-and-wife team Dan and Kelly Merton. After visiting both the US and British Virgin Islands multiple times- including holding our destination wedding on the beach at Trunk Bay in St John- we fell in love with the island and made the move to the Caribbean. Because we both love boating and sailing (we met at a regatta in early 2009) and owned several powerboats before moving to the USVI, we know how much fun and how many wonderful memories a day on the water can bring.

For us, the mission and purpose of Blue Ocean is simple: help visitors navigate the confusing, crowded world of day trips in the VI to find the boat or activity that'll be the best fit for their group, at no charge to the guest. With dozens of activities and day trip options, we realized it could literally take hours of emailing and calling to find a boat that goes to a guest's destination of choice on the day he or she wants. Because we know all of these boats and activities, we can help you find the boat that has what's most important for you, whether it be a restroom on board, an open bar, lots of snorkeling, or the most time at the Soggy Dollar, we can help!

Why should you book your day trip with Blue Ocean? We're completely independent, have relationships with dozens of boats and activity providers in the US Virgin Islands, and offer our services at no charge to you. Sailing and powerboating is our passion, and we want to help every visitor experience the majesty of the Virgin Islands in a way that works best for them. We personally know these boats, so we can accurately and honestly recommend which will best fit your interest, and we can even suggest unique options that you might not have considered. For instance, did you know that depending on the number of people in your group, it can actually be less expensive to charter a private boat with a captain for the day than it would be to go on an open trip on a big boat? This option allows you to avoid the crowds and see more exotic locations.

More than anything, we want you to have the best vacation possible. Nothing makes us happier than when guests say "Your advice was perfect and we had the best time. This was our favorite day of vacation!" Regardless of your budget, time frame, or what you want to see, we can make it happen. Call or email us now to start planning the best day of your vacation!
