Ocean Aqua, Perfect for Fishing AND Cruising

Ocean Runner Captains with new Contender Powerboat at Miami Boat Show
Our captains can’t shake their smiles over the newest addition to our fleet!

Have you seen the newest addition to the Ocean Runner powerboat fleet? Ocean Aqua is our new Contender 28′ Sport Powerboat with twin 250 horsepower Yamaha motors. Yes! We mean it when we say, “Go fast or go home!” We want you to have the best boat trip during your vacation in the U. S. Virgin Islands. That’s why we chose to add the Contender 28’ to our fleet. Ocean Aqua will give you and your family the freedom to explore many exciting destinations in the Virgin Islands comfortably.

Contender powerboats are known by anglers as the premier fishing boat, but it’s the opinion of the guests along for the ride that really prove the brand’s value. The Contender 28-S powerboat is build for everyone to have a good day on the water. It has all of the “hardcore fishability” features you expect from Contender, plus all of the conveniences all boaters enjoy. So, whether you are going someplace else fast, or cruising the coast for a smooth ocean ride, our Ocean Aqua Contender is the right boat for you. It has an over-sized fiberglass t-top for extra shade protection and increased long-range capability for offshore cruising. Plus, it has a large forward seating area, head and shower, and lots of dry storage space, so you can bring the whole family for a full day of fun in the Caribbean sun!

We went all the way to Miami to learn more about the Contender brand for you at the Miami Boat Show. There were literally hundreds of boats at the Miami Boat Show for us to test drive! We knew Contender was the right boat for our customers based on its record of success in offshore competitions for over 30 years. No wonder it was a Contender that helped to direct traffic for the thousands people being ferried across the harbor for the Miami event!

  • “Lobsters, Snorkeling and Cliff Jumping..oh my!” "We spent a glorious day with Captain Morgan! This was our first trip to the area and he managed to cram in a ton of activities and sights while still allowing us to just relax and take a slow, chill vacation day. There were 4 of us--two adults and our young adult children. He picked us up from St. Thomas and took the time to figure out what we wanted--rather than just taking us to a standard cookie cutter list of places. Over the course of the day we snorkeled and swam on quiet beaches, ate freshly cooked lobster at Sidney's, explored the area and capped off the afternoon with a leap off of a 40 foot cliff into the deep blue sea. Pure perfection. Morgan was friendly and fun. Would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing day on the water!"

  • "Our family of four spent the day with Jeremy as our Captain. He let us pick our day along with some of his suggestions. We ended up snorkeling at the Norman Island Caves and The Indians. Had a fabulous lunch at Pirates Bight , drinks and jumps at Willy T and finally spent some time at Jost Van Dyke and the beach . Jeremy was professional, friendly and we always felt safe. Would definitely recommend Ocean Runner for anyone looking for a day on the water." Visited July 2015

  • "What an experience. Took a trip to the British VI's to see the Bath's, Caves at Norman Island and Jost Van Dyke. Hired Ocean Runner to take us there for a full day trip. Captain Tom Larson took care of us like we were his own family. He was so knowledgeable when it came to the history of the islands surrounding St. John and the BVI's. Highly recommend Captain Larson and Ocean Runner for your excursions out of St. John."

  • "The boat we rented from Ocean Runner was well-maintained, the staff were courteous and obviously experienced, and the advice and service excellent!  We would strongly recommend OR to anyone seeking a powerboat rental while visiting St John."

  • "We have used Ocean Runner quite a few times during our family vacations and always have had a wonderful day. Last year we had a larger group and had to use another company. The difference was obvious from the get-go. Of course we enjoyed the day - it's impossible not to - but the overall experience was not up to what we have enjoyed with Ocean Runner."
