4 adults rented a rigid inflatable boat (rib) for an entire day with 50hp motor. Absolute blast. Instruction on use was excellent. Basic chart was provided of north shore. I think going where we went could prove to be problematic if you did not have some familiarity with area. Motored from Cruz Bay as far as Waterlemon Cay. Had sandwiches... More

We have been to St Thomas many times but this was the first time we went on the Bad Kitty boat trip. Really loved it! Staff and captain were very accommodating and went out of their way to make sure my wife and two kids had a great time. You'll need your passport because the trip includes the British Virgin...

We sent a day on Bad Kitty 1 with Captain Chris and his helpers, Kate and Julie. We were picked up at dock in St. John and spent all day in the British Virgin Islands. Boated to The Baths in Virgin Gorda where we hiked thru an incredible formation of rocks (one of two in the world). We then went... More

I like to avoid crowds at all costs. However, the Bad Kitty your was a one stop shop of every major tourist stop in the islands. You have just enough time in each location to see what you need to see and then move on. The time on the boat was fabulous and we really enjoyed all of the staff... More

We talked with people at our resort and The Bad Kitty was highly recommended. They were so right! Some reviews say they didn't think it was enough time spent at each location. We thought it was a perfect amount of time. First stop is where the crew get you through customs, you don't do anything but enjoy time on the... More

We had an amazing time on the Bad Kitty 5 stop tour of the BVI! Jeremy, the captain, and the crew - Scotty and Kevin - were all very knowledgeable about the history and culture surrounding all of the islands and were very hospitable! We can't believe how much we were able to do and see and yet never feel... More

We did the 5 stop BVI tour with Bad Kitty charters. The crew was great- friendly and very knowledgeable. This tour is a good way to get a taste of the British Virgin Islands if you only have one day to explore. The charter is fast paced, but at no time did we feel rushed. Each stop allows plenty of...

Cara and Scottie were fantastic. Great hospitality from Scottie as Cara steered the boat. She is a very talented boat captain and would recommend her to take you out on the water. I will definitely revisit St Thomas in the near future and charter the Calypso sail trip. If I would have stayed longer on St Thomas, I would have... More

Continental breakfast was horrible! Not enough time to enjoy the beauty of Virgin Gorda. No time for shopping! No time for relaxing, everything feels rushed! Not worth the money!

First off, we didn't take the Bad Kitty but instead went with the Calypso catamaran (I just can't find a place to review that specific boat). I can't say enough positive about our experience!! I had researched many other companies and boats and what sold me on the Calypso was the "trampolines" in the front and back of the catamaran... More
