We are so glad we booked the sunset cruise on the Calypso on our last night in St. John. It was such a pleasant, relaxing experience. We were on the boat with 3 other couples, and cruised around the Cruz Bay area for about an hour and a half as the sun set, with chill music, drinks, snacks, and great... More

What's the best way to get a taste of the BVI's if your staying on St Thomas, USVI. No question, a full day charter aboard "Bad Kitty". It's a slick catamaran style boat that holds about 35 (?) people. After they picked us up promptly from the dock at Red Hook we cleared customs on St John and then we... More

My new wife and I went on the Bad Kitty 2 on our honeymoon and what a great time we had! The Captain and crew were extremely welcoming, nice, friendly, etc. From offering food and refreshments, to answering questions about the islands, we could not have asked for better people. A 66 year old lady on our trip had difficulty... More

Great stops. Beautiful beaches. Snorkeling on Peter Island was wonderful. The Baths at Virgin Gorda were amazing. Excellent photo ops. Best beach ever was Jost Van Dyke...bluest water ever!! Need to take money for lunch at Cooper Island. Also, tip for boat staff. Reps at hotel didn't inform us of this. The staff were personable and friendly. Educated us on... More

Captain Mike and Captain John were outstanding and truly made our charter experience a memorable one. Not only were they skilled in handling a boat, they were excellent hosts, guides, and bartenders. We had one member of our group with a hip replacement - no problem. Another member had never been in the ocean and they made her feel relaxed... More

The owner and operator of the boat was fantastic and the other crew was more than outstanding . We went to four islands in the British Virgin Islands. The Baths were beautiful and we had a great lunch on Cooper Island. Then off to snorkeling. We met the most cordial people and was just a pleasure to be aboard. Kate,... More

We did this day trip on 4-21-15. It was spectacular in every way. Very safe! Try to sit outside as you can see better than inside. Each planned stop was really fun. The Virgin Gorda Baths are beautiful and so worth the short swim in. I let the crew know about my booboo hip and I got the princess treatment!!... More

This is the best tour, by far, that my husband and I have ever taken! We have traveled all over the Caribbean, and beyond, and taken tours all over the World. This tour to the BVI'S was the most enjoyable, informative, and economical we have ever taken. Jarrod and the crew of Bad Kitty II were, fun, informative, extremely knowledgeable... More

Had a fantastic time on the Bad Kitty2 visiting the British Virgin Islands! The Virgin Baths are incredible and the crew did a super job as guides showing us the different landmarks and telling us the history of what we were seeing. Lunch on Cooper Island was delicious and worth the price. Jost Van Dyke ~ it just doesn't get... More

Had an AWESOME day on the calypso catamaran with Emily and capt Joe. It was one the the best days ever - a highlight of our trip. Good (strong) drinks. They let us plug in our iPods and get crazy on the way back to St. John. Only our group of 7 ladies and a couple on their honeymoon so... More
