Capt. Joe & Oscar went out of their way to make our trip happen. We had a wonderful time hitting all the hot spots. The Caves, the Indians, Willie T's and Norm island were fantastic places to visit. Patouche has great boats and nice equipment. I highly recommend them. We won't come back to Tortola without them as our charter... More

We booked two days of boating and sailing with Patouche Charters. Captain Joe was willing to pick us up both days at our dock on Scrub Island. The first day we took his motor boat out, and he put us on some awesome snorkeling spots. After snorkeling we went to Soggy Dollar and Willy T's, which are a must if... More

I am posting this for the benefit of other cruisers who are considering the Baths excursion with Patouche Charters. In a nut shell, what we booked and what we received were completely different. When I originally emailed Joe, I told him we had a group of 16 on the NCL Getaway coming to Tortola from 7am to 3pm and that... More

Patouche C, Owner at Patouche Charters, responded to this review

We get a TON of emails/inquiries all the time, every day. Most often a "generic" description of tour is sent out with an overview of what we do, this is what was done with this particular group. After further emails we start to fine tune trip, this particular group and ship comes into port at 0700 and departs at 300... More

We booked our first day with Captain Joe through our hotel on Peter Island and had an amazing time. His knowledge of the islands including the history, who owns what island or interesting house, the marine life, and the best times of day and approach for visiting each of the destinations he took us to was truly enriching. He genuinely... More

Joe picked us up just outside the port entrance. It's a 5-10 min. walk. Then another 5-10 min. walk over to the Catamaran at Village Cay Marina. The boat is nice and clean. Joe has water, soda and beer to drink. We went snorkeling over near the Willy T. The snorkel site was very average. We only made one snorkel... More

A group from our cruise went out snorkeling and then to the Soggy Dollar Bar. Capt. Joe gave us some interesting facts about the area and some nice music for the trip. All in all a really nice day.

I booked Patouche for two separate one day charters for my group of 12. Joe Standish captained the first charter on a 52' catamaran for a day trip to Virgin Gorda to see The Baths. Joe was capable, friendly, and has a great dry sense of humor. The boat was clean, in good working order, and included drinks (sodas, beer,... More

Had the most amazing time with Captain Joe! He was a phenomenal and an all around great guy full of interesting knowledge about of the islands and attractions worth seeing. Incredibly patient and kind with us being novices in the world of boating. He was very welcoming and even picked us up from the airport and transported us to our... More

We took two separate trips with Captain Joe, both originated in Peter Island and have nothing to say but good things about absolutely everything, Captain Joe dedicates every second of the trip to make you feel comfortable, enjoy your time, be safe and most importantly, to have fun! He told us story of absolutely every island we either visited or... More

Had a wonderful week-long sail with Patouche Charters! Professional, knowledgeable, energetic, hospitable, courteous, and strict attention to details. Meals and drinks were excellent. Accommodations were wonderful. Joe not only knows all the best local spots, but also when to visit as to avoid the crowds and enhance the experience. Having him as our captain made for a relaxing and enjoyable... More
