This is an exceptional tour, fantastic crew, and breathtaking stops for snorkeling and sight seeing. Definitely worth the money, was the most unforgettable part of my trip to the USVI. The unlimited drinks after snorkeling were pretty cool, too.

Before booking the Bad Kitty my girlfriend and I really wanted to book the slow catamaran but it was sold out. I am so glad we didn't! Instead of cruising at 2mph and only seeing one or two spots, this fast cat shot us around the islands like a sports car. This is a way better idea for a younger... More

Love this trip! We did the full day catamaran trip to Jost - we were 3 friends on a girls trip to St. Thomas. I had been on the Calypso many years ago and even back then it was the highlight of our trip! This time it took a little coaxing as 1 of my friends is a non-swimmer, but... More

We used this phrase about 100 times on our trip on the Bad Kitty II. From easy check-in to Captain Joe and his crew, the day exceeded all expectations. The boat is clean and FAST, getting from Cruz Bay to Virgin Gorda in just over an hour. We had an exceptionally smooth day and the ride over was a delight,... More

This should be a 4.5 rating if ".5" could be added. The day really went well from beginning to end for my group of 6 friends on 8/12/15. The staff quickly got us organized with paperwork at the dock. We were well informed of procedures and itinerary for the day by the staff at the dock. The crew greeted us... More

I went as a solo passenger on the Bad Kitty II. I felt the crew made a point to ensure I had a great experience. The Baths were the first stop and they were beautiful....a must-see. The walk ends at Devil's Bay. I wish we could have spent more time there. The crew took our lunch order so that lunch... More

Great staff and great trip what more can you ask for! Best money I spent on my trip to St. John. Got to see the Baths, snorkel, eat lunch on Peter Island (or was it Norman?!?) and chill on Jost Van Dyke. Open bar and they were really generous. I traveled solo and still had a great time as the...

The crew of the Bad Kitty 2, Jeremy, John, and Julie, were excellent hosts and very informative on what we would do and see. We thoroughly enjoyed this excursion and the BVI Baths are a must see.

As noted elsewhere, the crew was very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable about local history. They couldn't do enough for each passenger. This is a party and snorkeling cruise so, if you don't want to do that, this is not for you. There was plenty of seating inside if you wanted to avoid the sun.
