Cruise Ship Excursions

Arriving in St Thomas on a Cruise Ship? No Problem. We offer flexible start times to ensure our cruise ship guests have the most time exploring the Virgin Islands!

Visiting St. Thomas on a Cruise Ship and want a one-of-a-kind experience, don't worry we have you covered! We are the private St. Thomas boat rental company for you! We start and finish our Cruise Ship Excursions at our marina in Red Hook, St. Thomas, which is a thirty-minute taxi ride from the cruise port.  This allows you to break free from the crowds and do your own exploring. With Empire Boat Charters you will not have to worry about getting on a crowded excursion boat and snorkeling with tons of strangers. We make it our mission to make your day on the water the best day of your vacation by taking you and your party to off the beaten path destinations on St. Thomas and St. John.

With all our charters we include a cooler with a limited quality of ice-cold beers, sodas, and water.  American Yacht Harbor Marina has a small grocery store where you can purchase any other beverages and snacks needed prior to departing on your charter.


We can be flexible with our Cruise Ship Excursion times. Cruise Ships arrive/depart at different times, and we understand this. We can adjust your arrival and drop off times at our dock at American Yacht Harbor in Red Hook to maximize your time on the water having fun. Give us a call to discuss your perfect itinerary and day on the water!


Once you book your boat excursion with us, you will receive an email with a lot of useful information including our favorite taxi driver's number to streamline your experience and fun!
