We visited St. Thomas via the Carnival Glory cruise ship on July 21, 2009. We booked the Big Blue charter boat for a 1/2 day trip to Jost Van Dyke and Sandy Cay. Captain Bradley Wilson was fantastic. We booked two months in advance and I emailed him many times beforehand. He always answered my emails promptly. He even hooked me up with a cab to take us to the dock in Red Hook. He asked in advance for our passport info and even what beverages we'd like for the day! When we showed up all we had to do is give him our passports and sign a form for British Virgin Islands customs. We are a family of four (two daughters 18 &22). The boat fits twice as many comfortably so we had plenty of space. I researched the trip and knew exactly where I wanted to go but if you don't Captain Wilson can certainly suggest some great places. We swam to a deserted island, visited White Bay in Jost Van Dyke and the Soggy Dollar Bar and Ivan's Stress Free bar and of course, Foxy's in Great Harbour. On the way back to St. John to clear customs, we toured Cinnamon Bay, Honeymoon Bay and Trunk Bay. An unbelievable trip. The best Caribbean excursion ever! We plan on doing it again in 2010.
Thanks Captain for a great day. See you next year.
