Around St. John

The turquoise waters and white sand beaches of St. John USVI are among the most beautiful in the world. Boat tours around St. John are definitely a full day of slow and easy sightseeing. Multiple stops along the North Shore bays and beaches of our beautiful National Park may include Honeymoon, Little Cinnamon, Maho and Waterlemon. We also stop at surrounding cays and less frequented South Shore bays. St. John day charters are perfect for the person who really wants to enjoy snorkeling and swimming closer to "home". St. John boat trips also save the time and cost of BVI customs. No passports required.

Other St John USVI Day Trips

Other favorite USVI trips that do not require a passport can include St.Thomas, Great St. James, Lovango, Congo and Hans Lollick to name a few. The North Shore of St. Thomas and Magens Bay are spectacular! Hans Lollick has a big white sandy beach that is often quiet and less frequented.

Closer to St John is Christmas Cove on Great St. James, which is a beautiful bay. The snorkeling between Congo and Lovango is lovely, and the color of the water is unmatched anywhere in the Greater Virgin Islands!

St John to Jost Van Dyke BVI

Jost Van Dyke is the ultimate idyllic Caribbean island. Only the most adventurous travelers worldwide find their way to Jost. The sandy beachfront lane in Great Harbor is home to numerous bars and restaurants including the famous Foxy's Beach Bar. White Bay is correctly named because it has a fantastic stretch of gorgeous white sand beach. White Bay also has plenty of beach bars and restaurants to visit. You may be lucky enough to have Seddy entertain you with some magic tricks at One Love. And no trip to White Bay is complete without a stop at the Soggy Dollar Bar for a legendary Pain Killer or a cold beer. On the way, we might stop at Smugglers Cove on Tortola, Sandy Cay or Sandy Spit - it may just be the smallest island in the Caribbean!? Passports required.

Cane Garden Bay Tortola BVI is a beautiful beach and has many restaurants and bars to enjoy

Tortola BVI

A trip to Tortola is another BVI favorite, starting with a check in at West End and then a scoot over to the shops on the other side of the bay at Sopers Hole. A stop at Smugglers Cove for a swim and a visit with the local who makes frozen drinks using the battery from his truck is a must. Enjoy Cane Garden Bay and time on Tortola's longest beach with its many bars and restaurants. Nearby Monkey Point on Guana Island or Long Bay on Beef Island are spectacular spots for a snorkel or swim. Plus, Marina Cay is a great adventure for lunch. Passports required.

Norman, Cooper and Peter Islands

You will really feel like you are living the Caribbean Dream when you visit The Indians, Caves, and Spyglass Wall, all of which offer some of the best snorkeling in the BVI. Lunch can be at the William Thornton - the infamous "Willy T's," or "Pirates Bight" in The Bight at Norman Island, locally known as the legendary "Treasure Island" because of its pirate tales, or enjoy lunch "one island up" at Cooper Island Beach Bar. Passports required.
