What You Can Expect

Road Town Shore Excursion: Round-Trip Beach Transfer from Jost Van Dyke

Road Town Shore Excursion: Jost Van Dyke Snorkel and Beach Tour

When your cruise ship docks in Road Town's cruise port, disembark your ship and hop in a private taxi  to Tortola's West End. From there, take a
water taxi for a short journey to White Bay on the beautiful, tiny island of Jost Van Dyke. At only 3 square miles (8 square km), this island is much less-visited than the other islands in the BVI.

When you arrive to the island of Jost van Dyke, spend your time there however you like. Swim in the warm, shallow waters; stroll the shore looking for shells or simply snooze on the powdery beach. Snorkeling among the marine life and living coral is also an option for those more adventurous.
At the end of your time on the beach, return to the cruise port the way you came.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your timely return to the Road Town port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

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.

We had a great trip to Jost Van Dyke. Seas were rough, but we made it in one piece. The captain was nice, but the driver who met us at the port and transported us to the boat was a bit rude to a family that arrived late. This is simply transportation from the cruise port to JVD, which is all we were looking for.
