Tiffanie I am sorry that you were disappointed with your charter while you were in the BVI. After talking with you on the phone(thank you for reaching out) I did speak with Captain Jaimie about your concerns and accusations. As I mentioned to you on...More
Patouche Charters connected us to a fantastic boat captain "Captain D" (Devon) who took us to some incredible snorkeling areas! Our October trip had some very choppy waters and rain on and off again, so he gave us some options. Since we had two children...More
I shared an experience of a lifetime with my brother's family and my own. We chose a bareboat catamaran through Captain Joe Standish (Patouche Charters) after a mutual friend highly recommended him and his services.
First, I have been in the Hospitality (hotels/resorts) industry for...More

Thanks so much, you guys were great absolutely my pleasure taking y'all out and helping "continue" Jimmys 50th bday!
I'm so thankful the shore excursion for The Baths at Virgin Gorda was sold out on my Disney Cruise, because if it hadn't been, then I never would have found Capt. Joe at Patouche Charters. After reading the reviews from cruise passengers pertaining to their...More
If you are looking for a great day/half day snorkeling and Island hoping, we would strongly recommend 'Patouche Charters". It was with a certain amount of trepidation that I agreed to go snorkeling from anything other than a catamaran with an oversized stairway into the water, due to my handicap. Joe, the owner and captain, you really did make my day with your thoughtfulness and able assistance in getting me back on board, as well as giving a really in depth commentary on the local habitat...More

My DH and I would second that. Just back off the Legend and our day with Joe and Julie. Couldn't ask for a better experience.
Cruise ship visit, The Baths Excursion, who to use? (10 Replies)
Long story short: The wife and I visited St. Thomas a few years ago and use Breakaway tours to do a "booze cruise". One of the stops was The Baths, which were amazing. We are taking an NCL cruise, the Epic, stopping at Tortola April 2018. We are bringing our 14 year old daughter to check out The Baths. I have researched a few options, but haven't found anything I like. -Ocean Magic (seemed awfully expensive) -Patouche Charters (mixed reviews) -Aristocat Charters (no reply) Are...More

Taking the ferry on your own is very easy and you'll find detailed help on the Tortola forum on cruisecritic. Many take the ship excursion because their ferry arrives a little before the public ferry. But not a big benefit for the added cost. Patouche is excellent, I've seen some negative reviews from folks who had a communication issue or just didn't do any research. The vast majority are very happy with Joe's excursions. The Aristocat Charters daysail is also excellent. Ocean magic with...More
Patouche Charters? (1 Reply)
I've tried emailing Patouche twice in the last few weeks about a trip in November and haven't received a response. It looks like their website is down too. Anyone local know what's up? Super limited options for a day sail to Virgin Gorda.

Phone calls are best, Internet and email in the islands is unreliable. Cheers, RickG
