I researched the boat trips for weeks before booking with Calypso. Definitely the right choice. Had a short stay and the 5 location day trip seemed the most productive. The weather was questionable, but - as stated by others - if it's raining somewhere, either wait a bit or go to another location. This was exactly the case for us.... More

Chris and Austin were great crew members and were very knowledgable about the islands and their history! I wish we were able to spend more time at the stops, but understand that comes with trying to see multiple locations in one day.

Called on Tuesday to reserve a dinghy on Friday as we were told the weather looked good for Friday and they had "lots of boats". Thursday night they called to cancel because they were short a boat which had broken down. We can only assume they give precedent to certain guests rather than first come first serve.

What a great time! The crew was fun and knowledgeable and made the trip a great experience. We were curious to see BVI but these guys did a great job of wrapping up the high points in a one day visit. Recommended highly.

We booked a trip with Bad Kitty, to combine three sites in the BVI we were hoping to see. We did get to see Virgin Gorda and Normal Island (just for lunch). We did not get to see the Soggy Dollar Bar due to water conditions. I understand and appreciate the crew keeping us safe but wish we were told... More

2nd trip on Calypso in past year. Friendly crew, this trip we had capt. John and Austin. Can't beat this for a well planned day that includes snorkeling, foxy's, Soggy Dollar and White Bay. Highly recommend.

Bad Kitty was alright for a brief visit to The Baths and Jost Van Dyke. Lunch was about the same. The snorkeling spot was pretty much the worse site I've ever been.They should skip this site and allow you more time at The Baths or Jost. The crew worked for their tips and it was much appreciated and the scenery... More

While in St. Thomas with the family for spring break last March, I had the opportunity to take a day trip to the British Virgin Islands with my two older children. We went with Bad Kitty and had a blast. The crew were fun, the islands were beautiful and the snorkeling fantastic. To top off the day, my daughter -... More

We had a group of 14 people, ages 65 to 14 go together on this trip. The staff was great and we had a blast. We went to the baths, Jost Van Dyke, Spanish Town and had a great day. The beach was beautiful, the food was great where we stopped at and the drinks were good on the boat.... More

The Bad Kitty is a 49', wave piercing, power catamaran out of Cruz Bay, St. John. We signed up for the full day, 4 island, 5 stop British Virgin Islands tour for $155 each. Add to that a $45 per person (cash only) British customs tax, lunch on own, crew tip for two mates (optional), and in our case, a... More
