We had a fantastic boat trip to the BVI. It was a perfect day to the Baths & Jost Van Dyke. The crew was amazing, great with kids (and the adults!). Ask for John and Ross. Our kids were ages 9-14.

I dislike being deceived. The individual customs fee according to the BVI Customs and immigration web site is $4.00 per person not the $45 (cash) dollars that the captain of the boat collects. If this is the way the crew gets paid because the owner of the boat takes the charter fee than shame on them. The crew worked very... More

Dear Glenn, Thank you for your concern and for bringing this matter up as this is a perfect forum to answer your question. This is absolutely not the way our crew gets paid. You are right, our crew works very hard and deserve to be paid well. The $45 “customs” or “international” fee that we charge is based on a... More

We have the the day trip to the BVI's several times over the years. we have done a private boat, bad kitty and the breakaway. Well don't waste your time or money on the others cause the Breakaway is an awesome day to the BVI's. Great boat, it's open so you don't feel closed in. They always have a great... More

If you're wanting to go to the BVI's on a day trip; this is one of the better trips to take. You'll first get light breakfast as you head out, usually banana bread and fruit. First stop is the Bathes at Virgin Gorda; a cool experience. Then to a nice snorkeling spot the varies with the weather. Lunch at Pusser's... More

The Captain and crew made the trip informative, interesting, and fun while at all times being conscience of passenger safety. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone wanting to visit...

We were a party of 6 and had considered chartering a boat just for ourselves. Silly us. The cost was over our budget so we looked in to New Horizons. I had read great reviews and believe me - everyone is spot on! We left Red Hook about 7am with about 28 on board. It wasn't crowded and everyone had... More
