Don't bring the kids, but for adults, this is a great time! A must-see for any stop in the BVI. Have a few drinks, jump off the roof naked, whatever! A floating pirate ship that seems to inspire extreme behavior and extreme fun!

Stopped here for lunch on a day boat trip through the BVI, not knowing what to expect and my whole group loved it. The food and the service were excellent! Very nice people running it too. Great lunch! A must!

First off, we did not eat here but food is available during certain hours. We came to the Willy T. during the afternoon and night time. We were brave enough to jump from the Willy T after a Painkiller or two. Coming from a chicken,...More

Lower class/dive bar where people are sloppy drunk and naked. Which if you like this 'Spring Break' atmosphere where everyone thinks they are 16, then make a stop. If not, keep on sailing by. It's not that big of a deal.

No, sadly Willy T did not survive. I saw a photo of it wrecked & washed ashore on a beach. It's possible they might be able to salvage it & rebuild, but it will take awhile. They would probably do better by buying another... More

They used to accept American credit cards, don't know about European, but they are totally out of business now. Since the hurricane, it is nothing but a wreck on the beach.
