8 reviews
Explore the Virgin Islands in style aboard MV Poseidon- our brand new 36 ft. TwinVee Ocean Cat. The TwinVee is known for its speed and stability while still maintaining comfort allowing guests to stay dry. It truly is the most comfortable powerboat on the island. MV Poseidon has everything you need for a PRIVATE charter. Swim with the turtles, see amazing fish and colorful coral using our brand new snorkel equipment. Or, simply step off of MV Poseidon onto the beach for a libation at Soggy Dollar, Foxy's, Margaritaville, Lime Out or any of the many beach bars in the islands. Your PRIVATE charter includes all U.S. national park fees, U.S. mooring permits, water, ice, soda and beer. <br><br>MV Poseidon features a FUSION stereo to listen to your favorite tunes. Its low draft and transom ladder allows us to drop you within a few feet of the beach. This is the price for the entire boat. You can design your own custom itinerary.

We really did not do our homework on this one! The hike is amazing with views of the mountains, ruins and lots of wild life. My husband, 18 year old daughter and myself started around 1:30 in the afternoon. Lesson 1 -start earlier in the day. The hike back hit the hottest part of the day and areas that were in complete shade on the way down were blazing with sun on the way back. We went only as far as the petroglyphs trail. This trail was amazing and really deserves a moment to appreciate the history that you are touching. We brought two bottles of water for the three of us, which we didn’t feel the need to use until the walk back, but due to the heat and exertion of the incline back we had to ration. Lesson 2 bring more water than you think you will need. Although the trail is well kept it is treacherous. There are patches with loose gravel, wet slippery stones and dry leaves hiding other dangers, the latter resulted in me slipping, twisting my ankle and falling hard to the ground. Each of us were wearing good walking shoes- Lesson 3 do not try this hike in anything but good walking/hiking shoes. After a few minutes of rest we continued the two miles left of the hike as my ankle continued to swell and turn purple. Even without a hurt ankle though the climb back up was very tough. Concentrating on it however took my mind of my ankle until we got in the car. Summary: be prepared and enjoy.

Well a Skinny Legs Burger never tasted so good after this one! We started around 930am after driving right by it to start. First full day back on island so we were just a little excited to be out! Parked easily by another jeep. We brought 12 waters for two of us and I believe we drank them all! The trail descends pretty easily from the start. We made quick time of it and enjoyed the placards with information along the way. I am not a huge fan of initial descent trails (because obviously my mind is thinking about the return!) but this sloping grade wasn’t too tough on your knees. Once you make that descent it’s really just a long walk to the bay. We did the Petroglyph side trail and it was cool to see. By the time we got to the water we were hot and needed to cool off. Took a quick dip - it’s a bit rocky where we entered so didn’t stay in long but it was a nice break. Snack and some water and turned back around. I would say about 1/4 mile from the top I hit pretty real exhaustion level. That last mile is just a real grind and it was about 1130 so it was warm. The shade throughout the trail was a huge blessing though and definitely made the heat bearable. We saw one person the entire time - felt like our own private trail! I am glad we did it and would do it again in the future. Total mileage came out to 5.1. Skinny Legs burger and a painkiller were enjoyed guilt free!

Great hike . Good idea to take walking sticks especially for the walk up or at least the last half hour . Most of the time you are in the shade and sometimes it rains which was actually fun, The beach itself was nothing to write home about but if you walk up a bit there is a mangrove swamp which was special. Definitely take the side trail near the bottom and see the petroglyphs and keep a look out for the lizards and crabs . Don't let the hype about the difficulty put you off . Just keep some cold beers in the car and you have something to look forward to . We decided not to do the guided tour since we like to take things at our own pace.
