Beautiful day out with Joe, at Cooper and Norman Island. Our kids loved it. Norman island is just gorgeous. We definitely recommend Patouche charters! Joe is the best, he is very knowledgable.

Booked this excursion for our family of 4 for our cruise on the Disney Fantasy. All Baths excursions on the Fantasy were sold out, and boy was I glad for that because this was a fabulous excursion. I have knee/mobility issues - so I called Joe in advance to ask about the number of steps on the ladder on the... More

We sailed 8/30/16 with Oscar. We were lucky - most others I contacted were closed for the low season. My wife and I and a family of 7 had a great time. Cooper Island was closed but we had a nice lunch at De Loose Mongoose after a good snorkeling stop off the East End then sailed to the Baths.... More

This charter was the best part of our week-long cruise. Joe took my family (14 of us, ages three to 65) to Cooper's Island for snorkeling and lunch, then to the Baths at Virgin Gorda. We got to the Baths after the Disney crowds had left and were able to walk the entire trail to get to the good snorkeling... More

My family of 5 chartered a week-long vacation with Patouche. Captain Joe was very knowledgeable about the BVI and made us feel safe and at home on the catamaran. He cooked breakfast and lunch, made dinner reservations daily and was an all around great tour guide. The catamaran was spacious and comfortable, and every island on our route was more... More

We had a great day with Oscar visiting Cooper Island and the Baths. By choosing the route he chose we had both locations virtually to ourselves. Very relaxing after a number of days with cruise ship commotion. The 10 of us were having so much fun Oscar had trouble getting us moving back to the ship! Food and snorkeling on... More

The sail ride was relaxing, entertaining, and educational! I'd have to say that it was the best part of our trip. I have already been telling everyone about it!!! It was awesome!

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
