We had a medical emergency while on the Bad Kitty. The crew responded quickly and professionally. As a result, our family member got the medical attention that was needed and is doing well. We are grateful to the crew for their quick action.

We had a great time on the Bad Kitty trip to the BVI's..........It's not a sailboat by any means, so the name of the game is to get to each destination as quick as possible and spend more quality time at each destination. The crew does a great job of letting the passengers know that if they are prone to... More

Chris and his crew asked us what we were looking for and they set sail with us for a wonderful day of snorkeling and exploring the sites all around the US Virgin Island of St.... More

Ten of us ranging from 15 to 72 years spent a day on the Bad Kitty touring the British Virgin Islands. We made several stops but the highlights were "The Baths" and snorkeling. In addition to the sights, the crew was great. There were 2 instances when I felt they stood out. The first part of our trip was traveling... More

Great crew and great tour. Had a crew with Emily, Austin, Julie and captain Joe. Very friendly, engaging and knowledgable. Flew out to the baths in Virgin Gorda and hiked and swam around there for a while. Then went to Cooper Island for lunch which was waiting for us. Then went to Norman Island to snorkel. Open bar on the... More
