We went on a Disney cruise over spring break, so the sheer volume of folks in port likely contributed to our experience. We were hoping for a smooth catamaran sailing, but it seems like a whole crew of folks swooped in and chartered it for the day, leaving those of us who wanted the catamaran sailing to move to several...

My wife and I booked a day sail with Capt. Joe from Tortola to Peter Island, Cooper Island, and The Baths at Virgin Gorda. From start to finish it was a great day in the BVI! He did a wonderful job of providing us with everything we needed for a great day of snorkeling, swimming, and fun in the sun.... More

We had a wonderful day in the British Virgin Islands with Patouche Charters. We were taken to the boat from our cruise ship terminal (be sure you walk past the shops to catch your transfer as it is beyond the initial group of tour vendors). Once on the boat, there was plenty to drink and places to sit and relax... More

This is a great way to see all BVI islands and visit some of them. Jo was very knowledgeable and cool. As American tourists it was fun to hear about his experiences and why he chose to move from America to the BVI. The sale was beautiful and he took us to a couple great snorkel locations as well. Highly... More

I am also a travel agent and took a group of 15 ladies on a sail with Patouche Charters on our day in port. We had an amazing time! Joe met us at the port and walked us to his sailboat just as he said he would. He then took us to the Caves where some snorkeled and other just... More

I am a travel agent and I took a group of 21 with Patouche Charters to the Baths and Cooper Island this past week. We cruise numerous times a year and we always book our excursions directly with local companies. Patouche was top notch! We had an excellent time. The boat, crew, service, and destination were wonderful! My group loved... More

We booked Patouche Charters to take us from our Disney Cruise ship to The Baths at Virgin Gorda as well as 2 other islands. We did not receive what he stated in his email. The owner, Joe Standish, sold us to another charter company without our knowledge who put us on a small fishing boat instead of the 36' catamaran.... More

Contacted Joe a few months prior regarding our visit to Tortola on NCL Escape. Since the ship is only docked from 7am-3pm, no other charter was able to accomate our time request. We wanted to go on a private charter by water to the Baths and avoid the Speedy's over crowded ferrys. Joe was willing to help and created a... More

Would definitely recommend Patouche for a charter or excursion off your cruise ship. Patouche provided with a great day for our family with catamaran ride, snorkeling, lunch and a visit to the Baths at Virgin Gorda. Captain and his crewmate were both outgoing, friendly and available to help. Our lunch stop off was great and had some great snorkeling too.... More
