Day started wondering if the weather was going to cooperate, but ended up amazing as could be, and gave the opportunity to get some amazing rainbow shots. The crew was fun and entertaining and their service was great. Chris was our captain and was hilarious. He was very knowledgable about the islands, and took us to a great snorkeling spot.... More

Highly recommend this tour. Such a fun day on the water, touring really beautiful sites - especially cool taking an easy hike into the baths. This day includes a lot of sailing, swimming, easy hike in the baths, an amazing lunch that you pre-select, yummy drinks, beautiful snorkeling, pristine waters and a fun and knowledgeable crew! I've been on quite... More

Our crew on Bad Kitty was Chris, John, and Kate. They made it a full day of fun an adventure! We visited the Baths, the Caves for snorkeling, and the Soggy Dollar Bar. Wear plenty of sunscreen and prepare for breathtaking views and loads of fun!

A wonderful way to end our time on St. John... spectacular sunset with friendly, knowledgeable crew. Alcohol, sodas, water, and veggie/crackers/cheese hors d'oeuvres included... we booked this through Cory at a small company in Mongoose Junction shopping area. She had several sailing options available with the Calypso (half day, BVI, etc.) and other sailing vessels, so drop by to set... More

Took this trip out of Cruz Bay to get a one day overview of the BVI's. Beware...parking is very difficult near the dock, even in low season (early Nov) and even at 7:30 AM so give yourself time to find a spot or walk or take a cab. Check in was pretty streamlined although there is a lot of paperwork... More

First off, the baths were amazing and this trip is worth every penny. The guides were very knowledgeable. The snorkeling was the best I saw in the Virgin Islands and we snorkeled all over Saint Thomas and Saint John. However, I felt that things were a little rushed. We didn't spend too long in Devils bay, which was one of... More

Kate and Julie will tow you out to shore if you can't swim that far. (or just lazy=) Then you will walk on a trail, climb over rocks, squeeze into small... More

This tour was a lot of fun. I went with 5 other people and everyone enjoyed the staff and the places we visited. The bathes are incredible,cooper island is cool and watch out for the soggy dollar. That got a couple of my passengers with the pain killers.....the staff was excellent. Only can remember Logan's name. Sorry guys and ladies!!... More
