The crew did a great job in setting expectations and then exceeded all of them. This is full day of fun including the baths at Virgin Gorda - must see, excellent lunch at Cooper Beach. Amazing snorkeling off of Tortola. Painkillers to drink, a stop at the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke and then a pleasant return journey... More

We boarded the boat promptly at 8am that morning. There were about 20 of us who got on at st thomas. We took a short ride over to st john where we picked up about 10 more guests. The boat was a little small for about 30 guests, but we sat in a smaller area uptop and it was less... More

After exploring many options for exploring the BVI from St John, the 4 island stop on the Bad Kitty seemed to be the most hassle free option for 2 people. We departed promptly at 8 am for Spanishtown, Virgin Gorda. The ride was smooth and fast. We enjoyed juice, fruit and delicious breads on the way over. Our crew pointed... More

My wife & I chartered the Bad Kitty power cat to take us from Red Hook St. Thomas to Cruz Bay St. John (10 minutes) then transfered to the Calypso sailing cat which sailed us to Yost Van Dyke in the BVI. This was our favorite day of our week in St Thomas. This is not cheap ($135 + $45... More

Great time on Bad Kitty for Virgin Gorda (The Baths) day trip. Captain Chris and the crew are top notch.

It's an expensive excursion, but I'm glad we were able to see multiple islands within the BVIs and determine where we would and would not want to go back too. The excursion was organized well and the staff were professional. We went to the Baths in Virgin Gorda, Cooper island, Norman island, and White beach in Jost van Dyke. The... More

We paid $155 + $45 for BVI Customs + Lunch. Pricey, but SO worth it. We couldn't charter a boat with a reasonable price tag because there were only 2 of us to split it, so this was our best option. The captain, Jeremy, started out pretty cool and ended up a jerk, but it didn't ruin the trip. The... More

This was an unbelievable family day!!! It was so well organized and worth every penny! My husband and and I took this charter with our 14 and 12 yo girls. The staff was so friendly and took care of everything for us. You do need passports to visit the BVI, which the staff take care of as you are shopping... More

I had an 11 year old and 7 year old child with me for the four island snorkeling tour. We all loved it. Wonderful captain and crew, comfortable boat, beautiful destinations. The crew really knew what they were doing. They shepherded our group of about 22 people expertly to and from each destination, cheerfully served us drinks, and overall did... More

This tour takes you to 4 islands in the British Virgin Islands. It leaves from St Thomas. You will see The Baths, Jost Van Dyke, have lunch on Cooper Island and snorkel off Peter or Norman Island. This is an action packed trip and very memorable. Be prepared to spend money on this trip -- each person pays a $45... More
