We are Good Day Charters.
Good Day Charters was founded in 2007 with an 18' powerboat named Striper, that father Stan and son Dusty trailered across the country from California to Florida, finally shipping it down to the Virgin Islands. The dream of starting a boat charter and boat rental business in the Caribbean started off after visiting St. Thomas during a cruise a few years earlier. Stan told Dusty "Son, we could actually move here one day and start a private boat rental business". Dusty was of course, all ears. The entire family was and got so excited that one day they made their move. The Good's packed their belongings, said goodbye to family and friends, and jumped on a plane to begin their paradise adventure.
Their dogs came along, their summer clothes came along and their vision of a dream did as well. Stan and Dusty who already had many years of boating experience in the Pacific ocean enrolled in the St. Thomas Captain School to achieve their U.S. Coast Guard captain's licenses. They started boating around all the U.S. and British Virgin Islands researching the top spots to show future guests. A short time later they were ready to start Good Day Charters private boat rental service.
In the beginning it was not easy, Stan and Dusty walked the cruise ship docks every morning, doing their best to drum up business. "Who wants to go private boating, snorkeling, beach hopping, sightseeing in paradise with us? Who wants to go to Soggy Dollar and drink a world famous painkiller rum drink?". Yes, that is how it all began.
Almost a decade later Good Day Charters is still a family owned and operated business that has grown to be one of St. Thomas' and St. John's highest rated and trusted boat charter companies.
"When you go boating with us, we want you to feel that you are a part of our family while experiencing the amazing sights that the Virgin Islands have to offer. The happiness, smiles and wonderful memories the Virgin Islands bring to our guests is something we will never take for granted. Thank you for choosing us, thank you for trusting us and thank you for helping us pursue our passion and our dream."
