We sailed Jan 15th 2017 on bad kitty out of St. John. Despite some of the negative reviews, my wife and I thought the entire experience was awesome! We prefer private charters and avoid the big party boats like in Mexico or with that one group which ruins it for the whole boat. Maybe we got lucky, but we found... More

Nice, fast boat with a great crew. We started with a tour of the baths and snorkeled along a cool reef. Open bar after that back on the boat, a nice stop for lunch on cooper island and then over to the white sand bay on jost van dyke for some painkillers and sun. Overall great time- I recommend sitting... More

I really enjoyed Bad Kitty. It was laid back and accommodating. They offered great assistance through the baths, includong holding personal items or taking pictures. I had never been snorkeling before and after realizing it wasn't for me, I came back to the boat where I was greeted with a tasty adult beverage and big smiles with concern for my... More

My 3 sons and I took the multi-island trip. It was fantastic. Crew was very accommodating to the kids and everyone was having a great time. The tour of The Baths was excellent along with the other islands. Wish it was a little longer. One note, my youngest son (8yrs) left his hat and sunglasses on boat at end of... More

Very dissatisfied with tour. I should have listened to Westin concierge. I found Capt. Chris arrogant, sarcastic and immature. He was more interested in telling his canned, corny speaches than engaging with guests and answering questions about the VIs. For our party of 5, not worth the $1,000 +. Boat is small and crowded with limited outside space.

Staff and captain did everything right. They went above and beyond to serve everyone on the boat, provided plenty of food and drink and were informative and fun. We went from St John USVI to the baths at Virgin Gorda, lunch at Cooper Island (excellent) snorkeling and Soggy Dollar Bar / One Love bar. But at the end of the... More

I did a full day sailing and snorkeling: 9 - 4 on the Calypso sailboat, not the Bad Kitty. Competent Captain Kara and friendly, informative, lively Scotty took excellent care of us, adjusting easily for individual needs. They were very flexible. We made multiple stops. They served us fresh fruit, pumpkin bread, a tasty lunch, and plenty of drinks. The... More

My husband and I used Bad Kitty to get us to Jost Van Dyke for New Years Eve. This was the best decision of our entire trip. They picked us up at 4pm from St. Thomas then took us to St. John to pick up another group and then we made our way to Jost Van Dyke. Best part was... More

My sister and I spent a week in USVI and we took two boat tours. Once on the Bad Kitty 2 and once on the Calypso. The entire staff (on and off the boat) were incredibly knowledgable about the surrounding islands and their history in the Carribean. All staff were so amiable, talkative and had a great sense of humour!... More

My husband and I brought our girls (8 & 10y/o). We are staying on St. Thomas. We were on the Bad Kitty 2. We traveled to the Baths @ Virgin Gorda, snorkeled around Norman, lunch at Cooper Island, then had a couple hours at Jost Van Dyke. Our girls were the only kids on the boat, but even with alcohol...
