“Awesome day!”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

We had such a great day visiting the baths, cooper island, the Indians and Jost Van Dyke.
The crew was wonderful, drinks and snacks aplenty, and the sights we visited were glorious. The BEST snorkeling at the Indians-beautiful corals and fish everywhere. No crowds anywhere. Definitely worth it. Thanks for an awesome experience Courtney, John, and Mike.

“The BVI's in a Day!!”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

We took this trip with Captain Chris, 1st Mate John, and 2 family members. Chris was a great captain, and so funny; John was helpful and knowledgeable. We had a great tour of The Baths in Virgin Gorda (couldn't swim in that day, the swells were too high); a wonderful lunch at Cooper Island; good snorkeling at Peter Island; and a great time at White Bay, Jost Van Dyke, at the Soggy Dollar Bar. The crew was very competent and intent on always making sure everyone was safe, which was a good feeling. Overall a wonderful, must-do trip when you are staying in St Thomas or St John!

“Dangerous swim to The Baths and miserable crew members”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

We booked this trip while staying in St John. We called the booking line to book 7 people on this day trip. The cost was $150.00 and also an additional $40.00 cash fee to visit the BVI's. When we got to the meeting area there were no signs telling you where to go. After walking around for 10 minutes we finally found a man with a clip board. We filled out some paperwork and off we went to the ship. We were greater by an unpleasant woman who instructed us to place out shoes in a giant bucket, which I did not. We then got on the ship and the captain gave us a speech, it felt more like I had just signed up for the draft. He was not kind, sort of cranky and very matter of fact. He instructed us after boarding that we would need to swim 150 yards both ways in order to see The Baths at Virgin Gorda. This was never explained to us prior to booking or even prior to boarding. When we arrived at the spot most of our group did not go. I have taken several of these trips on different boats and have always had the option of taking a dingy to the area. This was the first time I was told thee would be a mandatory swim. While we stayed on the boat the captain took a nap. When people returned to the ship they were exhausted. Some people life vests had filled with water and were struggling to get back. It was insane. All in all it was a very strange trip with the captain and the female attendant going between being sort of friendly and not friendly at all. One of the people were Mike and he was the only person that was remotely nice. After the tour was over they begged for tips saying it was the only way they made money making you feel guilty if you did tip them.
