Overview
Bar hop or channel your inner beach bum on a flexible day trip from Jost Van Dyke’s White Bay from either St John or St Thomas. Set off on a 30-minute boat ride to the smallest of the British Virgin Islands and spend the next several hours in whichever way you choose. Sip rum-based Painkillers (own expense) at the bayside Soggy Dollar, relax to reggae music at the One Love Bar & Grill or simply lounge upon White Bay's alabaster sands before returning to your port of origin.

First let me say that Captain Thomas was great and the boat trip to St. John itself was perfect. However, getting to the boat was not. I’ve used their services in the past and although I’ve never had a problem in the past, I would look for other ways to get around next time. When I arrived at the airport and got my bag, I was told that although I had paid for a private taxi to take us to the boat, I would now be sharing a taxi with other that were going to the “same area” as I was going. I had to explain that I specifically paid for a private taxi and finally had to insist on getting a private taxi, as the entire reason for booking was to avoid that hassle of having to ride with Luther parties going to other places. Finally, they told me to follow the, where they spoke to one of the taxi dispatchers to get a random taxi to take us to Redhook to the water taxi. It wasn’t a pleasant start to the trip and one I’ll avoid in the future.

Even though our airline was late, Dolphin made a call and got customs to stay open just a few more minutes so we didn't get stuck in St Thomas! I couldn't believe the communication it was amazing. I got a confirmation right away after my booking, a phone call, another call a couple days before travel to double check on everything. And you can't miss the airport counter! Reggae music and Rumshots!

We booked with dolphin water taxi and their service was amazing. Tommy and McKim on the dock were super helpful and friendly, they answered any questions we had. Our captain, Enos was a great as well definitely would use this company again, they were great! Definitely more expensive than the public ferry but if you want a VIP concierge service with no waiting after a long day of travel Dolphin is definitely worth the price.

I planned three separate transports for three different crews and all three worked extremely well. There was a moment in which some of the passport information was split between two of the groups but the DWT team identified it BEFORE it caused a delay and personally remedied the issue. All three trips turned out awesome. These included both land AND water taxi rides WITH transfers performed by their folks. VERY professional outfit! I recommend without reservation nor hesitation. I will DEFINITELY use them again! Douglas Pahl

Wonderful service! Customs stops were very organized and smooth. The boats are safe and fast. Jose helped with our checkin and provided refreshing drinks. Jaime and Dion were great Captains with on time service.
