I was able to see two sea turtles. The Lime Out barge has some serious gourmet taco power! His pets and squares alike would enjoy that joint.
Good day on the water!

AMAZING CREW AND TRIP!!! Lacey and Brandon made Stormy Pirate the BEST!! Lime out is an experience of a Lifetime!!!
Best snorkeling and sightseeing trip ever
Dianne_L, Jun 2023
I had an absolute blast today on this trip! The boat ride was so fun and it was great to see all of the island and some fabulous houses. The snorkeling was out of this world fantastic! The first stop there were a lot of great big rocks that were really cool to swim around and there were a lot of fish. The second stop had an amazing array of fish and reefs and all kinds of stuff. Best snorkeling I’ve ever done. I got “tacoed” (see pics lol). We stopped at Limeout for tacos for lunch and they were very tasty. Everyone on the boat seemed to have a fabulous time. To top all this off, the crew, Lacey and Brandon, were so awesome. They kept everyone happy with drinks, played a great selection of music and were so helpful in every way. I loved this trip! I want to go again!
A feast time!
Mark_P, Jun 2023
We made great time and got in three snorkel outings instead of two! We saw lots of marine life. The hosts were very nice as well.
The Best !
Brittany_A, Jun 2023
This was amazing experience. Best boat drive ever. They made us feel very comfortable. The music selection needs to open
Snorkeling and limeout experience
misti_e, May 2023
Great day circling the island! First time snorkeling for our family and it was a great way to experience it. Lime out tacos were amazing. The tour staff made us feel so comfortable. Thank you Sammie and Lacie
Disgusting and Uncomfortable
Chanice_J, May 2023
Do Not, I repeat do not waste your money. Okay for starters we arrived everyone was waiting for them to come and let us in when we were walking up they closed the gate as if we didn't belong there lady asked our names and realized we had tickets. We were on our way to the snorkel site and they stopped to show us homes in the hills we had Suzanne and Lacy, as the captain was driving her crew member asked my friend if she knew who Kenny Chesney, my friend said no so a song of his comes on and my friend knows the song just not the artist so my friend asked who's house are we looking at and she proceeded to say its Kenny Chesney the one you don't know about. We didn't feel like we belonged there, the conversation with us was different then the way they spoke with others on the boat. What really put the icing on the cake was that we paid $200 a piece for this 7 hour excursion they gave us thermal cups with their logo on it so I was thinking oh thats nice of them to throw in a suvenior cup, at the end of the excursion the next thing that came out their mouth baffold me, they informed us that they needed the cups back, or we could purchase the cups... So let me get this straight you guys are having people drink out of these cups that god knows how many other people before us have drunk out of, that is disgusting and vile I don't care how well you clean those cups, get plastic or styrofoam cups. Go at your own risk not worth it, this was 7 hours of my trip that we can't get back.
Response from Host, May 2023
We are very sorry that you did not have a good time. As I have stated before, our trips are not for everyone, but the majority of people have an amazing time as you can see from our other 2300+, 5 star reviews. As a socially responsible company, we will NOT add unnecessary single use plastic to our island's already over filled landfill to satisfy environmentally irresponsible, guests such as yourself. Our insulated stainless steel cups are sanitized at the end of each trip, just like multi-use glassware used in restaurants. The cups we use reduce plastic waste and reduce the amount of ice needed; therefore, being environmentally friendly to not only our islands, but also to the planet that we share. Yes, there are still some socially irresponsible and entitled people, in this world who prefer to us single use plastic or styrofoam cups and those types of people are probably not a good fit for any of our tours. Once again, we are sorry that you did not have a good experience with our company and we hope you enjoy the remainder of your vacation in the USVI.
Great day on Stormy Pirate
Janice_R, May 2023
We had a fabulous day on the water with Susana and Lacy! What a great crew - they were knowledgeable about the area, attentive to passenger needs and just super fun to spend the day with. The lunch stop for tacos at Limeout was fantastic! The snorkeling was terrific! Book in advance b/c they do sell out. We will definitely return to Stormy Pirates for our next trip.
Stormy Pirates is a MUST!
Harrison_V, May 2023
This was easily one of the highlights of our trip to St. Thomas! The entire day was an absolute blast. Big shout-out to our Captains and guides Sammie and Tara who were the best hosts and always made sure we had our cups filled and the music going. It rained on our trip several times but that only meant the tunes went up and our party got crazier! The swim spots allowed us to see so many fish including an absolute beautiful barracuda! The stop at Lime Out was amazing and we left so full! Already planning our next trip back and we plan to do MULTIPLE tours with Stormy Pirates! Thanks for such great memories!
Great time

Loved it
Isabel_F, Apr 2023
This was a highlight of our trip to St. John. Suzanna and her partner were great and made the experience very enjoyable. The highlight was seeing so many sea turtles and of course the tacos at Limeout. Thank you again!
Highly recommend!
Shawn_W, Apr 2023
Kenny and Suzanna were great hosts. We saw several turtles and an eagle ray while snorkeling. They shared historical information as we circled the island and kept the trip entertaining!
Best Time Everrrrr
Anna_R, Apr 2023
Me and my husband had such an amazing time Sierra and captain Sammie did an awesome job keeping us well informed and entertained during our entire trip Sierra is so knowledgeable with so much patience I was a lil nervous and she got right in the water with me so I felt comfortable and made my first time snorkeling very memorable…. Oh and let’s not forget about the most delicious tacos we had at Lime Out that I can still taste till this day lol we’ll definitely be doing this tour again and hopefully I’m lucky enough to get the same crew members
Highly recommend!
James_B, Apr 2023
