Nate’s Custom Charters. Your Day, Your Way!


I have been on St. Thomas for 20 years. When I was in high school I did a sea semester and sailed around the Caribbean for six months. We started in St. Thomas and I fell in love with the island at first sight. As soon as I graduated high school I bought a one-way ticket with no place to stay and no work. The rest is history. I love being in the charter business because it has allowed me an opportunity to share what I love with people that are visiting and even with locals. There are so many places to see here that nobody knows about, which is so rewarding to me to be able to share this.

Anyone can rent a boat and offer a day trip. Over the years I feel the industry has become a bit commercial and less personal. What keeps my business ticking is I have not given up on giving my customers the intimate experience that they will remember for years to come. They know who they are going with, and it is about what they want, not sticking to a schedule. I might not be the biggest, but I stay consistent. Making my guests feel like family and comfortable to be with me is my approach.
