What You Can Expect

Day Cruise to British Virgin Islands from St Thomas or St John

Day Cruise to British Virgin Islands

Make your way to the departure marina on St Thomas or St John, then board your boat for a full day of exploring the British Virgin Islands. On the way to your first stop, enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast with coffee. 

When you reach the Baths on the island of Virgin Gorda, disembark to explore the giant rock formations. Walk among the tunnels, hidden grottoes, arches and chain of tidal pools that line the soft sand beach. 

Climb back aboard the boat and head to Diamond Reef, a snorkeling hot spot. Don the provided mask, flippers and snorkel and dive in to the turquoise waters. Spend time swimming with schools of brightly colored tropical fish on the live reef. 

After your snorkeling stop, move on to lunch (own expense) at Pusser's on Marina Cay, a world-famous restaurant serving traditional island fare. Chow down on steak, barbecued ribs or seafood, then spend some time exploring the island's views and prolific ruins. 

When you've finished lunch, cruise on to Jost Van Dyke. Take a swim, lie in a hammock at the beach, go snorkeling or hit up a beachside bar for a 'painkiller', the traditional local cocktail. Visit the island's various small boutiques for souvenirs.

At the conclusion of your day exploring the British Virgin Islands, head back to St Thomas or St John.

Amazing trip. Crew could not have been nicer. Our weather was not good for snorkeling at the Baths so we finished a little early there. With the extra time they took us to see some other sights on the way back. Loved every minute of the day and would highly recommend the company

This was the best part of our 5 day trip to the Virgin Islands. Captain Mike and Spence were outstanding and entertaining. This is probably the best way to get an island hopping sampling of some of the highlights of BVI. I actually enjoyed that we got the smaller boat out of the group New Horizons vs. BreakAway as we could zip around the islands and there were less of a crowd on the boat. I thought this tour did a great job mixing in leisure fun with physical activity snorkeling and hiking The Baths.

-Swimming off the back of the boat to get to Jost Van Dyke -- something felt nostalgic about jumping into the ocean, coming ashore, and going to a bar.
-Diamond Reef was an excellent place to see coral and marine life.
-The Baths were incredible although we had a bunch of groups there at the same time and it felt a little rushed, but no real complaint.

-That we can't do this trip every day, because we didn't want it to stop.
-But seriously, it'd be nice if we got an extra hour at Jost Van Dyke.

I plan to take friends and family on this cruise in the future. It was a really well curated experience.

Great value for a single day trip to the British Virgin Islands. Captain Mike 2 and mates Brad and Spencer were knowledgeable and attentive to their guests needs and safety. The Baths were beautiful wish there were more time, the snorkeling good and the food/drinks awesome. Two small improvements.
1. Coffee on board for those of us who need an a.m. caffein fix would be awesome. We had to leave our lodging before coffee was available and although I did drink a Diet coke, it was done so out of necessity.
2. Rotate seats for those who were in the sun during the morning. After lunch or snorkeling, ask those under the canopy to switch with those in the sun. Musical chairs anyone?
This trip was outstanding and I recommend it for anyone who wants to visit BVD on a budget.

My hubby and I spent a lovely week in St. John for our honeymoon in December. Absolutely everything was incredible, but one of the highlights was definitely the trip to BVI. The customer service was impeccable and all the activities we did were so much fun! This is something I would not miss out on!

If you like exploring new places and actively enjoy yourself, this would be a best excursion. I was very happy about going around various beautiful spots perhaps only appreciable from the sea and enjoy swimming. The crew are experienced but not overly care-taking. To put it shortly, they are pros. I liked it about them.
