We booked a full day tour with Kelly. The tour started on land with a tour of the island including stops at several of the top beaches like Cow Wreck and Anegada Beach Club. The beaches were amazing! We wished we could have stayed the evening in one of the "luxury " tents at Anegada Beach Club. Wow! We visited... More

Captain Kelly (284-544-9661) was a fabulous tour host for our day at Anengada! He took our group to Horseshoe Reef for some of the best snorkeling we have seen in the Virgin Islands. We were able to see the flamingos roost in the flats off the reef we snorkeled - truly amazing. He taught us how to shuck and clean... More

Captain Kelly provided a unique experience of how to hunt, catch and prepare lobsters. We had 6 men in our group (each with different swimming abilities), and he managed to locate lobsters in tough hideaways while showing each of us his spotting techniques. He also managed to locate conch, rays, a nurse shark and local edible fish (Yellowtail and Bonita).... More

We had a spectacular morning snorkeling on the reef with Captain Kelly. Beautiful coral reef, colorful fish, and a barracuda that followed us around. Captain Kelly caught a lobster and got several conchs so we were able to have fresh lobster and conch cerviche for dinner. Great way to get some spectacular snorkeling in at Anegada.

I read here about Kelly and the rave reviews were all correct - Kelly is one of the best things about Anegada! We got to do a lot of snorkeling at the reef. Kelly found lobster for us (which was prepared at Big Bamboo and was delicious) and he found some beautiful conch for us. Then we got to experience... More

Ive been a captain in the Virgin Islands for the past 5 years. After discovering Kelly up in Anegada a couple of years ago, I make sure every one of my guests has the opportunity to go out on the water with him. Not only is he knowledgable, funny, and kind, but he is also very saftey conscious. I know... More

We had a great afternoon with Kelly on the water....the weather was a bit windy and water wasn't calm, but we ventured to the reef. No lobster hunting, but we did get to snorkel at the reef. It was beautiful and "alive". Bring your own snorkeling gear + fins. We didn't have fins and current was strong, so swimming wasn't... More

Water is so clear, visibility is excellent. There are numerous reefs to explore in the area. Very little boat traffic.

We ran into Capt Kelly on the north east coast and happen to ask him about diving in the area. Next thing you know we are all signed up. Our group was 4 adults, and kids 11, 7 and 7. Capt did a great job of managing expectations right up front as we had a cloudy and soon to be... More
