BVI Island Hop Snorkel Trip
Contrary to the title of this trip you might choose to start with a snorkel stop in U.S. waters! You have to learn to appreciate what you have before we take you to the extraordinary. Depending on the current and waves you might explore Henley, Waterlemon, or Whistling Cay on your way to clearing British customs on Tortola. From here you could spend the rest of the morning around Norman Island. Famed originally for its role in Robert Lewis Stevenson’s book, Treasure Island, but more recently for its world-class snorkeling and dynamic floating sailboat bar it is a must stop for this trip. The Caves are an excellent snorkel site offering an incredible display of fish variety and of course three different shaped “caves” to explore. After this “fish” display at the Caves you could cruise five minutes over to the “Indian’s” where we see tons of schooling fish but more amazingly we see both hard and soft coral. This duo of snorkel sites tops out everyone’s underwater sights for the week without a doubt. The afternoon could then be spent over on Jost van Dyke for a late lunch at Foxy’s or a simple lunch of hot dogs and burgers in Smugler’s Cove on Tortola where yet another decent snorkel can take place if you still have it in you. If not, the beach here or at White Bay is tops in the islands for relaxation and beauty so no worries!

Jost Van Dyke Bars and Beaches

Spend the entire day on and around Jost Van Dyke visiting the bars, restaurants, beaches and locals. Check into customs at Great Harbor in the morning and get some fresh baked banana bread at the bakery or have Eddie at Foxy’s make you a Bloody Mary. Cruise around to Diamond Cay and hike out to the Bubbling Pools or spend the morning on Sandy Spit, a one-acre island completely surrounded by beach with only one palm tree in the middle. Have lunch at Foxy’s Bar and enjoy a classic west
Indian chicken roti or check out his daughters place Taboo for fantastic personal homemade pizzas or mango chutney burgers. The afternoon is surely spent sitting on White Bay in front of the Soggy Dollar bar - or if you prefer in one of the many hammocks with a PainKiller in hand! The captain will bring you out of your trance around 4pm and we will head back to Cruz Bay to finish the day and drop you off in time for Woody’s happy hour.

Circumnavigate St. John and its surrounding (U.S.) islands
Get the real experience of the physical Virgin Islands by seeing a good part of St. John and St. Thomas from the water! Snorkel the surrounding islands and Cays such as Henley, Lovongo, Carval Rock, Little St. James, Waterlemon, Christmas Cove, or Newfound Bay on the east end and many more places completely up to you and our captain! Have lunch in Coral Bay, Cruz Bay, or over on St. Thomas. Spend the afternoon snorkeling or relaxing on a secluded beach. If someone else shows up, get back on the boat and find another beach with our captain!

Snorkeling and Exploring The Baths

A day at the Baths on Virgin Gorda is an experience to remember. The Baths are by far Virgin Gorda’s most celebrated sight. Magnificent boulders the size of houses topple over one another, creating underlying grottos of clear turquoise water. Navigating through a series of wooden stairwalks and ropewalks will get you from one side to the other. The granite boulders contain large quantities of feldspar and quartz. Rainfall, which reacts with the feldspar and granite has smoothed the rough spots and is how each boulder appears smooth to the touch and eye. Not the greatest snorkeling site in the BVI but certainly the most striking in physical appearance. An entire morning and early afternoon is spent getting to the Baths and exploring. Lunch is usually found on Cooper Island, where the only establishment you’ll find on the island is the Cooper Island Beach Club. Enjoying their mango chutney burger while looking across the ocean at Tortola is something we never grow tired of. Depending on how much time was spent at the Baths you may have time for a snorkel stop at either the Caves or the Indians, but probably not both.
