Gaylen and Dina were our Host and the trip from St. John over to Virgin Gorda, the Baths, and the Indians for snorkeling was great fun. They both made sure we knew a lot about where we were going and what we were seeing. They provide 2 blue rafts and our daughter (7) used one to snorkel from which Captain... More

Took a day trip to BVI aboard the Pirate's Penny on a Friday in August. The tour visited Spanish Town in Virgin Gorda for a quick stop at customs, then the Baths, Cooper Island for lunch, and Jost Van Dyke for a stop at the Soggy Dollar Bar before returning to St. John. We loved the small size of the... More

My husband and I had been to the Baths many years ago and wanted to take our daughters. As we waited for the Stormy Petrel at the visitors center, we saw the Bad Kitty leave and I was grateful we weren't packed onto that boat. Instead we spent the day with one other family, Captain Jug and Megan. It was... More

We have been using this boat charter for over 15 years when we travel to the Caribbean each year. You can sign up for one of their regularly scheduled daily tours to the Baths in the British Virgin Islands or charter one of the yachts for your group and they will customize the trip just for you. The crew is... More

On 8/7/15, my husband and I boarded the Stormy Petrel for a tour of the US VI and BVI. We wanted to be on a more intimate boat - something smaller in scale than what the mammoth booze cruises offer, in a more relaxed environment in which to tour Virgin Gorda, The Baths, Cooper Island Beach Club (great lunch spot)...

It was an amazing trip! We had eight adults and four teenagers and had a fantastic time on Stormy Petrel. We went to Sandy Spit, the north side of Tortola and journeyed to Cooper Island for a delicious lunch. The Indians were a highlight! Jug and Megan were very helpful in making sure the novice snorkelers felt comfortable and ensuring... More

We booked this trip with the Marriott Adventure Tours through the Frenchman's Reef and were under the understanding that we would get to go to the Caves. Unfortunately to our disappointment that was not the case. Other from that the tour was great, the guides were awesome and it was an amazing trip that we would re-do (with the caves).... More

This was a great trip (we did it twice on their different itineraries). We brought our young kids who had a blast. Captain Jug and Megan were the best. They were knowledgable about the local sights and points of interest at each destination. They were patient with the kids and new snorkelers. They made sure that everything was perfect. Everyone...

We saw amazing sea life; turtles, sting rays, and fish. Megan and the captin are awesome! Wonderful hospitality, I could not have asked for better guides! I... More
