What You Can Expect

I was a little worried when I got the email stating that I needed to confirm 24 hours in advance to receive meeting location and time since I was on a cruise ship and had no access to email or phone. But, I was able to confirm prior to leaving the US and it was very easy to find the location and the time was appropriate to get off the ship. The tour was excellent and the guides were very helpful and friendly. White Bay on Jost Van Dyke is just beautiful and the beach bars are a blast. The boat ride back and forth was almost worth the cost of the tour...so much fun!
It was a great day. Weather was excellant. We got off the boat and walk a short distance to the designated meeting point. We checked in and were escorted to are transportation to the marina. Once at van are guide briefed us on the tour. They give you the option to continue or get your money back. Great ride over the mountain.
Once at marina a center console (34 foot) docked and loaded up with all the folks on the tour. A short and senic ride to the island. We were given directions on where to go and what is expected, dropped off at the beach. Find the hut you want to hang out at, or walk the beautifl beach. Snorkling is a challegen. You have to swin a short distance to get to a good spot. If you decide to do that the rewards are worth it...
Jost Van Dyke was awesome. The tour group people were very nice. They were on time and very helpful. He pulled the boat right up to the beach so it was easy to access the shore. Great excursion. Jost Van Dyke is very beautiful and the water and beach is incredible. We were at the beach by 9:15 am and said until 1:00 pm.
The trip to Bird Island was terrific. Swimming with the turtles in their natural habitat of the open sea was unforgetable. Our captain and his mate were excellent hosts and I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone.
We chose Viator based on the location, price, and description. They did not disappoint! We had a private taxi to a beautiful harbor where we took a private boat to Jost Van Dyke. We arrived about 45 minutes before the 'Cattlemaran' with the 140 cruise ship passengers. We were delivered directly to the beach where as our shipmates had to be transported on what looked like a 'people' barge. Sure, they got a 'free' meal for the extra $40 they spent, but they also left the beach an hour before we did. So, we spent $40 less than them, and got 2 extra hours. What a spectacular beach! White powder sand beach, crystal clear water, fantastic snorkeling! This was easily the best shore excursion we had. Our whole party recommends this to anyone who wants to spend a relaxing day on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
worth it was able to spend more time at the beach then if we went on the ship excursion
This is a great tour. There was some complication at the beginning of the tour, since the cruise line changed their docking time from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. The tour was fantastic and the operator had us back to the ship in good time. Too bad the stop in this port was not longer! Recommended!!
The beach was great! The only downside was the boat ride on the way back, there were big waves and instead of slowing down we hit them and we flew into the air and slammed back down onto the boat. Many bruises and aches from that. But the beach was the best part, I thought the boat ride was too until we experienced that on the way back.
Overall a good tour. Sam, our driver was 20 minutes late picking us up and the port authority had to call him and make sure he was still pikcing up our group of 13; not very comforting, Frank our boat captian was great, letting my son drive the boat accross the bay to the beach. Frank was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Not able to go snorkeling due to heavy under current and choppy water. Wish we would have waited until we got there to purchase excurtion. Beach was nice but nothing else to do on beach but lay around. I believe we could have done that for less then $104 each (there were 7 of us) and no refunds.
