We live on STT as caretakers and hosts of a large rental villa and discovered Capitol Air on a STT Facebook page. We discovered they were doing day trips to Anegada and Cow Wreck Beach and Grill and we knew we had to do this trip as we had been to the island back in 2000 on a barefoot sailing trip and had always wanted to return. The cost was VERY reasonable compared to the time and money of the limited ferry schedule. Price includes flight, ground transportation, and custom's fees. Odell, flight operations manager for Capitol, was our pilot and his fiancée, Sandy, came along as the tour guide. There were 2 other couples who booked the same flight and before the day was over, we were all friends. Odell and Sandy handle everything including making sure we all a great meal from the grill and bar and lobster for whoever ordered one. The local family that operates Cow Wreck could not have been nicer, friendlier, or more accommodating. Book this trip. You will remember it for a life time.

I and my two adult children chartered a flight for pick-up in San Juan at the downtown airport, avoiding all the hassle of the main airport. Then flew to Virgin Gorda for a visit to old friends in at the Bath and Turtle, Mad Dogs to see Edith and the Baths. Odell then shuttled us off to a great lobster lunch at the Big Bamboo in Anegada. Unfortunately I missed my old friend Aubrey, but his family was there to share old times for the afternoon. We were back in Old San Juan before customs closed at 6. Great time.

Charted Capitol Air to fly us from Puerto Rico to St Thomas on our move trip (took commercial to SJU). The entire experience was wonderful. They contracted a local SJU outfit to meet us at the gate for our commercial flight. The agent took our carry-ons and bag tickets, took us to a waiting area and went and got all of our checked luggage. We were able to get a bite to eat, hit the restrooms and take our dogs for a walk. The agent then had all of our luggage (10 pieces) delivered to the waiting plane where we met Captain Odell (sp?). He was super sweet and allowed our dogs to fly out of their kennels in the plane provided they were well behaved (they were). He had cold water and beer waiting for us. We then took the short trip to STT. Folks met us to get all of our luggage loaded in to our waiting cars.

A lot of this comes with traveling private but Captain Odell and his agents in Puerto Rico were very friendly and easy going. Some in this business are not. We will definitely use them again.

As to cost, it was about 2x what a similar commercial flight would have cost us. Definitely worth it considering they took away all of the hassle of switching planes with kid and dogs in tow.
