I agree with all of the previous positive comments. We loved our day out touring the islands on Bad Kitty 2. Personally, we never felt rushed and thought the timing at each spot was perfect. Although it's expensive, it's a great value for sure. The crew (Jeremy, Austin and Chris??) was knowledgeable, hard working and friendly and the boat was... More

The Bad Kitty came recommended by a business colleague. Making reservations was very easy via email. The total cost of the trip for two people (not including the cost of lunch at Cooper Island) was $385 including tip, but we felt it was a good value. This is a great way to see various islands. The Baths at Virgin Gorda... More

I'm not going to add much to what has been said in the reviews below. Be prepared to have fun and go, go go! Best parts: interacting with the fun others on the boat and people watching on Jost Van Dyke. Worst parts: waiting to dock and go through customs and people on the boat who feel a need to... More

The boat and equipment are in very good shape, the crew is fast, efficient and friendly, but most of all we had a great experience, learned about the islands. We were on Bad Kitty II, we started off at 7:30 am w/ a Continental breakfast on the boat at we headed out, stopped off at St Johns for customs then... More

Loved our day on the Bad Kitty out of Red Hook. Headed over to Virgin Gorda followed by Cooper Island (a gem!) and Jost Van Dyke. The water was a bit rough so we bounced around a bit and advance communications are lacking - we could have prepared better had we known we'd be jumping off a boat to walk/swim... More

Our vacation group took the Bad Kitty 2 BVI tour out of St. John this past Friday (2/20/15) and it was absolutely wonderful! The crew (Jeremy & Courtney) really made this trip fantastic with their knowledgeable stories and outgoing personalities. They were always willing to answer questions and meet our needs. It was perfect trip, saw lots of great islands,... More

An all-day trip on the Bad Kitty is the BEST excursion we have done while vacationing in St. John. There is something for everyone, including a swim-in and tour of The Baths, snorkeling, lunch on Cooper Island, and some time to try a Painkiller at the Soggy Dollar Bar. Captain Joe and first mates Kate & Emily were awesome. Highly... More

My wife and I went on the Bad Kitty to Virgin Gorda, Cooper Island and Jost Van Dyke. We also snorkeled at the Indians. The trip got off to a rough start. The boat was 30 minutes late to pick us up at red hook. When they showed up, there was no apology (not did they return 30 minutes later... More

We took the Bad Kitty trip today with our three daughters (15, 13 and 10). We had a fantastic day and the captain and crew were knowledgeable and super friendly. Such a great way to visit the British Virgin Islands. I highly recommend it!
