We took the Calypso catamaran for a day sail to BVI. Staff was excellent, very accommodating. Stopped for some snorkeling just off St John, then on to BVI Jost Van Dyke for a day at the beach and the Soggy Dollar Bar. Sails were up for most of the way so that was very relaxing and beautiful. Continental breakfast turned... More

My family and I took the charter aboard the Bad Kitty 2 on 10-7-2014. I cannot say enough to the hospitality and professionalism of the crew (Chris, Kara, and Courtney). This is the best way to see so many different spots in a single day. After snorkeling, the bar opens and the mates made sure to keep your drink full... More

We took the trip to the BVI on Bad Kitty with Chris, Austin, and Mike on 10/2. We had an awesome time with the crew and the rest of the passengers. The crew members were very informative and friendly. We loved all our stops but do wish we had more than an hour at Soggy Dollar. It wasn't too big... More

This tour was great, and well worth the money! There will not be a cheaper way to tour all four islands/destinations included. Our crew included Chris, Austin & Emily - all were amazing! Very informative, very friendly, very accommodating - couldn't ask for nicer more laid back people! We had a gorgeous day out on the water, and even drove... More

This trip was so much fun! I would recommend it to everyone I know. The crew was awesome (very personable, informative and accommodating), the ride was comfortable and exciting, and the stops were breathtaking. Although I could have spent days at some of the stops the time frame that they gave at each was fair.Overall I couldn't have had more... More

So I will try to be fair with this review cause I know that is what I want and expect when reading Trip Advisor. When I pay top dollar for something I expect a top dollar experience. That is why we stayed at the Ritz! Bad Kitty was a good experience but the day cost me approximately $500 ($300 to... More

If you have one activity to choose from when you are in St. John or St. Thomas, the Bad Kitty "4 Island/5 Stop" trip should be your choice. This was a day to remember. The Baths at Virgin Gorda were beautiful. We swam in with our very fun and lively group and toured all the snug fitting rock formations and... More

My friend and I were not disappointed with our decision to take the Bad Kitty day trip. The crew was friendly and accommodating, the weather fantastic, and the views amazing. A couple of tips: We went to the Marriott resort at scrub island for lunch. The appetizers are huge! Don't miss a pina colada here, they were fresh and delicious.... More
