Owner description: Welcome to The V.I.P Club! If you are coming to St.Thomas there is only one thing to do, come paddle boarding in paradise with The Virgin Islands Paddle Club! Paddle boarding is a great, easy, healthy and active sport and it gives you a great view of the water and the beautiful sea life below because you are standing up! It is also relaxing but at the same time a great full body exercise and lots of fun!

“a wonderful day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We've been to St Thomas three times and this was easily one of the high points of our visits. Stan and Zoey were our instructors for the day and they could not have been more attentive. The combination stand up paddling/snorkeling excursion really makes a lot of sense. It's two activities for the price of one. Honeymoon beach is beautiful and not as traveled as the main beaches. It had a more casual vibe. This was a great way to spend an afternoon. Stan and Zoey, wonderful people.

“Best ever!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This was by far the best experince we had on our trip to St. Thomas. From the time I contacted VIP online to when they droppedus off, they made us feel like family! The boards were really nice and the lessons got us up and paddling in no time. We can't say enough great things about our experience with VIP!!! You will be missing out on a wonderful experince if you do not book with them. Hope we can come back again to this wonderful island and company (soon)!! Also the mango drink is to die for!! Water Island is a beautiful peaceful place to visit.

“calm clear waters! highlight of our trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

What can I say we had our most amazing day of our vacation with the VIP club. We caught the ferry in the morning from crown Bay Marina and we were on Water Island in a matter of minutes. Very interesting island with lots of history. A quick walk to Honeymoon beach and we were learning to Stand Up Paddle Board. after a quick lesson we had it down and went out exploring with our snorkel gear bungeed down to the front of our boards. Anytime we saw something below we just jumped in and checked it out. we saw turtles, stingrays, fish and even a huge puffer fish! Joe's beach bar served up cold drinks and we had a great burger at heidi's grill right down the beach. It was a truly amazing unforgettable day. Thanks Dusty and the VIP Club! See you next year!!

“It Can't Get Any Easier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

VIPaddle Club, i.e., Stan, Zoe & Dusty are awesome! My family rented paddle boards from VIPaddle Club for 7 days over the holidays. Zoe & Stan delivered the boards to our villa including snorkel gear, life preservers, and straps for our car. We took the boards with us everywhere and jumped in the water whenever we discovered a new beach to explore. Y'all are the best! Thanks for such personalized service.
