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.

It was a great trip. I would have liked more time at the beach but otherwise it was a fantastic trip. Great drinks and great staff. Would recommend to anyone with a day at St. Thomas
Day Cruise Review
, Jul 2019
This cruise surpassed our expectations. Our crew consisted of Tyler and Greg, and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. They gave us as much time as possible at each stop and were very accommodating! They were also of course very friendly and knowledgable about each destination. Great crew, great cruise, I would definitely recommend this trip for anyone who has not yet visited these locations before! Thanks Tyler and Greg!

Awesome day! We always go on a boat tour while vacationing. We were traveling as a family of 4. Kids are 18 and 20. Kids loved the trip. Said it was their favorite boat trip ever! Dave and Tyler were amazing... nice, helpful, funny and knowledgeable. I think there were 24 total on the boat so a nice size number of people. A must do while visiting the islands

Lovely water but they took us to Gorda Baths too much hiking and not enough time to enough the water there so you just took a hike then they had you order subpar food from some place they hook up with and it was terrible, when they barely let you hang at the soggy dollar and for what you pay to get into the BVI i would have rather paid to eat and drink at soggy dollar where they tired to then rush you along. So they could have left our the one stop completely. I dont need another gift shop.

Wonderful tour! This was my first time in the US and British Virgin Islands, though my father has been many times. The first stop at Virgin Gordy is breathtaking. There is a hike involved to get to the destination. After, you are brought to a small island with a restaurant. The food was very good and the views were gorgeous. Diamond for snorkeling was just ok. I thought that my experience in Trunk Bay in St. John snorkeling on my own was better than this reef, but still a neat experience. The last spot isThe Soggy Dollar. My dad has entered the island in areas where you hop off the boat and walk through the water. With this tour, you literally jump off the boat in a life jacket and swim ashore. It was raining at this point, so it was on the chilly side once you got to the bar. It was definitely part of the experience though, and a good story to tell! The crew on the boat was amazing. They keep you well fed and on the ride back to St Thomas, they give you unlimited Pain Killers. One of the highlight shows of my trip to The islands,

I would highly recommend this trip. We went on the New Horizons boat with Captain Nick. What a fun day. The Baths were beautiful and even though they were a little crowded, we were able to take our time. Captain Nick gave us a fun history lesson as we walked and had water for everyone. I was worried that flip flops would be a bad choice, but there are many areas that you have to walk through water, so sneakers would have been more of a hassle. Soggy Dollar Beach was awesome. I had heard that customs could be quite a process, but Nick handled the entire process at BVI and he got us back to USVI before the other boats, so we all sailed right through. I am always a little weary about purchasing excursions through a 3rd party, but I'm actually super happy that we did. Our party was able to enjoy Soggy Dollar Beach right away b/c we had prepaid and just had to give Nick our voucher, while others on the bought had to 'settle up'. This was the first time I used Viator we booked 2 excursions for this vacation - both through this site and I will definitely use them for my next vacation.

BEST day EVER with Captains Dave and Brayson. It was truly the perfect day in the Virgin Islands and so very worth the money for an extraordinary experience on the British Virgin Islands. I have never seen water as clear and beautiful as the water at Jost Van Dyke and the Painkillers at the Soggy Dollar Bar were cold and tasty! Snorkeling in Monkey Bay was beyond amazing with fish and squid everywhere in sight! It was a day we will never forget and we can't wait to do it again next year! It will be an annual outing each time we come back to the islands! We stayed at the Frenchman's Reef in St Thomas and this was a very easy day excursion! TIP: BRING CASH! Dave and Brayson were so very entertaining and very informative and after lunch those delicious pain killers kept coming making the drive back home a very relaxing and pleasant! Great time! Great Crew. UNBELIEVABLE beauty.

We sailed over to St John to pick up a couple and then headed over to the British Virgin Islands where we visited The Baths, ate at Marina Bay and snorkled at Diamond reef. Then later headed over to Host van Dyke where we spent about an hour. Beware of hidden fees such as a 75 additional fee for entering the British Virgin Islands which due to my research was hiked up a bit by 5 or 10. But the overall trip and the crew were very informative helpful and made the trip enjoyable.
