Destinations Jost Van Dyke, BVI Jost Van Dyke is home of more than a couple “must see’s”. At only three square miles, it packs a pretty big fun punch. Home of Foxy’s Tamarind Restaurant and Bar, where the man Sir Foxy will most likely serenade you with songs from around the World. It is a great place to start the day off right, with the home brewed beer from Foxy’s brewery, and a quick look at the beach shops. Also being a quick and convenient harbor to clear Customs into the British Virgin Islands. Just around the corner is the World Famous White Bay. Once you find White Bay, your worries will fade away into the bottom of a famous Painkiller cup from Soggy Dollar Bar. Dropping anchor right on the beach, step ashore and take your pic of the 6 beach bars, or find yourself in the shade of two palms, living your dream in one of the many hammocks. Cruise on down to One Love Restaurant and Bar to enjoy great food and most of the time, live music, all with your toes in the sand. During the “Winter” months, take a trip around the corner to the sister bar, Foxy’s Taboo, and try the grouper sandwich. After lunch, take the hike to the Bubbling Pools, where you can find the Caribbean’s natural hot tub. You’ll find when leaving Jost Van Dyke, you are already planning your next trip. With one of the Travel Channels top ten beaches in the World, and one of the best places to be on New Year’s Eve, Jost is a must do in the BVI. Willy-t & Norman “Treasure" Island, BVI Norman Island is a great stop while in the area. Tie up to the Willy T floating pirate ship bar, and “fall off” the top deck into the crystal clear water over and over again. Whatever kind of day you are having, the Willy T can be your host. If you are looking for grub on the beach, we can run into Pirates Bite for delicious lunch and drinks. After lunch and maybe a quick and friends game of beach volleyball, shoot over to the Caves for a snorkel to remember. Norman Island is known from writer, Robert Louis Stevenson, and the book Treasure Island. The Caves are legendary for a place pirates used to hide their treasure or booty. Jump back on board for two minutes, to the Indians. Definitely some of the best snorkeling around for experienced snorkelers. Willy-T is the world famous floating Bar on a newly built barge off the shores of Peter Island. Named after famed corsair and pirate William Thornton, it is a favorite of cruisers for dinner and drinks. Depending on the destination we could easily stop here for lunch or drinks. Virgin Gorda, BVI At almost forty miles away, Virgin Gorda is quite a jaunt from St. Thomas. Sometimes the Francis Drake channel can be a bit “Sporty”, but once you make it, you will see it is worth the trip. With a Customs office located in Spanish Town, your Captain will clear all passengers into the BVI. You can stretch your legs while shopping on the dock, or relax at the Fat Turtle and have a cold one. Once cleared into Customs, we can take the boat over to Devil’s Bay, where you will swim into the Bath’s. At the Bath’s you can see real evidence of the islands volcanic origins, as huge granite boulders lay in piles on the beach. Take the trail, or make your own through these scenic grottoes that are open to the sea. When you make it to Virgin Gorda, you might as well go the extra 15 minutes to the North Sound, where you will find the exclusive Saba Rock. By Far, Saba is our pick to have lunch and hang out on the back deck, where there are no words to explain the beauty. Traveling all the way to Virgin Gorda is a bit more of a fuel bill, but with everything to see and do, the experience is priceless. Sandy Cay And Sandy Spit, BVI Sandy Cay and Sandy Spit are both within five minutes from Jost Van Dyke. Sandy Spit is a perfect spot for a quick dip and taking a walk around the secluded ½ acre island. With the appearance of the classic paradise island, most people call it the “Corona Island”, as it has been used for many commercials and photo shoots. At nearly 14 acres, Sandy Cay was at one point owned by the Lawrence Rockefeller Estate, but is now a part of the Virgin Islands National Park Trust, keeping it beautiful. With a small hiking trail, maintained by the Park, Sandy Cay is sure not to disappoint. St. John, USVI Only 3 miles from St. Thomas, but a world apart, St. John is the perfect place to spend a few hours. With more than half of the island being National Park, the beauty remains undeveloped and in it’s natural breathtaking state. With countless protected beaches, reefs and maintained hiking trails, St. John is a great place to get “lost”. The best of both worlds, Cruz bay, also known as Love City boasts great shopping and restaurants, with a pretty big island time vibe. St. Thomas, USVI St. Thomas is the second largest U.S. Virgin Island at 32 square miles. With the largest cruise ship port in the Caribbean, sometimes holding up to 13 cruise ships at one time; it is widely known as a great tourist destination. With a number of beaches being taken up by hotels, St. Thomas has a variety beaches off the beaten path. To see St. Thomas from the water is much better than the view from the window of the taxi from the airport! We will make sure to show you the good stuff! Honeymoon Beach, Water Island, USVI The newest declared U.S. Virgin Island, Water Island is an amazing lunch or midday cocktail stop right on the beach. Just off the south side of St. Thomas, the island known as Small City can add a bit of history and variety to your day. If you are looking to explore, you can rent a golf cart right from the beach and tour the 400+ acres that make up the island. Check out the old plantation ruins, Fort Segarra, and old underground fort partially constructed by the U.S. for World War II. If seeking more relaxtion, post up at Dinghy’s Beach Bar and Grille to catch up on some ESPN while trying the local lionfish tacos. If not your style, head down to the east side of the beach, where you can find Heidi’s Grille. Be lazy in a hammock, or try the famous steak sandwich. Either way, Water Island is a flawless addition to your perfect day. Buck Island, USVI Located just outside of St. Thomas’ main Harbor, Buck Island is always a great addition to the trip when staying close to the U.S. Islands. Known for the second oldest lighthouse in the Virgin Islands, and its two beautiful bays great for snorkeling. Turtle Clove is cleverly named for all the Green Sea Turtles that call it home. Within minutes of pulling up to Turtle Cove turtles can be spotted coming up for air, and when jumping in the water, you are guaranteed to see more turtles than anywhere else. Along with the sea turtles and stingrays, all along the small coastline is full of life. With tons of healthy coral and colorful fish, you better make sure your camera is ready! Just around the point is Shipwreck Cove. A Great place for history buffs who want to snorkel an old World War II sunken navy ship. The Cartanza Senora was a 190ft long freighter, which was originally used to transport goods during the war. But legends say that after the war it was used as a drug transporting ship, and was allegedly scuttled by the crew in attempt to evade government officials in the mouth of Charlotte Amalie harbor. Years later in 1979, local dive shops raised the money in order to move the shipwreck out to an area off of Buck Island in 85ft of water. In the 80’s the storm surge from Hurricane Hugo moved the ship into what is now called Shipwreck Cove, where it sits at about 45ft deep and broken into three pieces and full of marine life.
