Oscar & Marley did a great job with our group. They are young but don't let that fool you. Experts on the water and factory trained mechanics in the unlikely event that the boat needed work. Patouche is very fortunate to have these guys. Fantastic hospitalty, great ambassadors for BVI!

We were a group of 28; 20 high school seniors and 8 adult chaperones. This was by far the very best day of our 7 night cruise. Joe and his assistant could not have done more to make our day perfect. We sailed, while Joe pointed out historic points and gave us information about Tortola. Then we docked on Norman... More

I highly recommend Patouche, great service and so much fun. We spent the day with two of Joe's guys Oscar and Marley and had a fantastic day. The baths at Virgin Gorda are a must see, my kids had a great time playing Marco Polo in the rocks and pools with the guys. I even found a Turtle at Cooper... More

We went with Joe in his day trip to the Baths while on our honeymoon and had a blast! Joe is helpful, friendly, and knowledgable. We loved snorkeling at Cooper Island and the Baths. Lunch at Cooper Island was also delicious. We would highly recommend Joe and Patouche! -Anne and Will

Went with my wife, little sister and her boyfriend and it was a great trip. Captain Joe picked us up right in the Peter Island marina and helped us aboard. Boat was not at all crowded and Captain Joe made everyone feel like they were the only ones aboard. The boat was a 50+ ft catamaran and was in great... More

We had a wonderful day on Patouche. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Baths. The rock formations are amazing. We loved Cooper Island as well and had a fantastic lunch there. We would love to visit there again. Had a great time snorkeling and were lucky to have perfect weather for our trip.

First it is hard to complain when you are lucky enough to take Catamaran on a snorkeling trip to 2 unbelievably gorgeous islands as Virgin Gorda and Cooper Islands. They are truly breathtaking. Joe, his brother and Zoey were all very friendly and nice. However, Joe's power boat stopped running supposedly that morning? Or perhaps he did not have anyone... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time on a beautiful catamaran with Captain Joe, his brother Chris,and a sweet girl (I'm ashamed to say I forgot her name). All were super friendly, helpful and accommodating. We had two snorkel stops and got to see turtles,stingray,and lots of colorful and beautiful fish. The Baths was incredible! Stopped for lunch at...

Went out on a daytrip on Patouche and couldn't have had a better time if we tried. Our captain was so much fun and incredibly informative about the islands we were seeing. Snorkeling at Norman Island was astounding, we had a lot of help with the equipment (snorkeling newbie!) and was given all the time we wanted. We cruised around... More

We did a powerboat day trip to Norman Island and Jost Van Dyke while on our honeymoon. Joe was such a gracious and fun tour guide. He goes above and beyond to make everyone feel comfortable. He was knowledgable about the various islands--so we were able to learn a bit about each island and history/fun facts. Snorkeling was great @... More
