#1 Charter Experiences in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands

One Love Charters is locally owned and operated by Joe and Amanda Trattner. We have been operating boat charters in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands with our own boats since 2012 and added Real Estate to our portfolio in 2018. Over the years, we have explored every inch of white sand beaches, off-the-beaten-path snorkel spots, sampled delicious local cuisine and beverages at every restaurant accessible by land and sea, and built lasting relationships with all the great business owners in the Virgin Islands!

We now have a couple of little crew members/future boat captains in our family—Joey, 7, and Lola, 4—who we just can’t spend enough time with on the water. So, as of 2024, we are hanging up the captain’s hat and focusing on sharing our experiences and, most importantly, our contacts with the best charter operations, restaurants, and basically anything and everything fun that you can experience while visiting our extremely special and breathtaking island paradise.

Researching boat charters and things to do while traveling takes time at all stages of the process, and being in front of a screen is probably the last thing you want to be doing while trying to create an experience designed to relieve stress, minimize work, and create extra time with your traveling crew. Through excellent communication and premium service, we strive to become your new best friend on the islands! Just check out the reviews below from previous guests and see what they’ve had to say about us over the years.

Drop us an email or give us a call (yes, we’ll actually answer the phone), and we’d love to listen to your group’s specific interests/ideas and introduce you to the local business owners who can turn these specific dreams into reality so that your entire group of family and friends leave with memories that last a lifetime, and give us a call back on your next vacation.

The best part about our service is that it’s

  • Free for all our guests and anyone who reaches out to us.
  • We stay in business by charging our partners a small fee in exchange for listing them on our site.

Best Day Ever

We had the most excellent day! Captain Dominic was the best! He took us around the whole island of St John and stopped at great snorkeling spots and amazing beaches! We’ve been going to St John for the past 5 years and it was our first time seeing this beautiful island from the water! The day was the highlight of our stay!! He’s super friendly and very knowledgeable about the island. We will definitely book again with One Love Charters! Also, Amanda was wonderful to work with to book our full day charter.

One Love Charter is Top Notch

This was the best day and highlight of our entire trip! We were comfortable in the beautiful boat, listened to fantastic tunes while cruising around, ate lunch at Lime Out, swam and snorkeled. The captain was knowledgeable and such a nice guy!! I would give them 10 stars if I could!! One Love Charters is a GREAT choice for a private tour. We will be coming back and using them over and over.

Fun-filled day with One Love Charter

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and day on the water! Captain Val, Amanda, and the whole One Love crew are amazing! So accommodating and helpful from beginning to end recommending spots for us to see and places to eat/drink etc. I’ve booked other charters in the VI for past trips but will only be booking with them going forward! Can’t wait to come back and do it again!
