We spent the afternoon with Island Roots and it was great. The catamaran is very smooth on the water, especially considering how big some of the swells were. He took us to some great snorkel spots and we saw a ton of fish and coral....More

A gray, rainy, overcast day turned out to be a great experience thanks to Thomas. Knowledgeable, friendly & always kept a positive attitude even with sketchy weather. The boat was comfortable & had plenty of room for four adults. We will be back.

I agree. Call Jason. He was able to pick us up at a different location. He is very easy to work with. Our resort had a nice beach he was able to pull in and we literally stepped off the beach into the boat.

Interested in day trip to the Baths when we go to St. John in July. How long does it take to get from Cruz Bay to Virgin Gorda? Can trips be customized?

Going out to the Baths is a long boat trip and can be a but rough as well. It is absolutely worth doing it though on a charter. It's fun to swim up to the beach there and get to explore the area without a tour group. Go on... More
