Private Power Boat Day Trips in the British Virgin Islands
For our guests who are looking for more speed than our sailboat can go, we have added a 51ft Sea Ray to our fleet.
This boat is designed for cruising and entertaining in unsurpassed luxury. She offers both comfort and speed with a large forward deck for sunbathing and relaxing. We provide all snorkeling equipment and noodles for your use and enjoyment. All you need to bring is a towel, camera, swim suit and sunscreen.
We are offering half and full day charters to suit everybody’s needs. Our half day charters are 8-12pm and 1-5pm. The full day charter typically starts at 9am and will return to the dock by 4pm.
As these charters are private, you and your family and friends get to enjoy exclusive use of the boat and can decide where you want to go. This is a great option if you want to see The Baths at Virgin Gorda AND Jost Van Dyke in one day!
Here is a sample itinerary for Norman and Peter Islands on a half day trip.
Settle in and we will leave the dock and head towards the Caves at Norman Island. You will be able to spend up to an hour at this stop as you can explore the 3 distinctly different water level caves. Our personal favorite is the far Southern cave which is bright and the water is deep attracting a variety of colorful fish underneath you. Also, you can see the orange and purple sponges growing on the walls of the cave.
When you return to the boat, there will be fresh cantaloupe, chips and rum punches! Or help yourself to a beer, soda or water.
We will run to our next stop at the Indians, which is the pinnacle of snorkeling in the BVI. The underwater topography is stunning to say the least and is filled with beautiful corals and underwater canyons which are teeming with vibrant marine life, including frequent turtle and stingray sightings.
From here we can make a short motor over to Honeymoon Bay or Little Harbour, both are on Peter Island. Little harbour is known for swimming with the turtles. More often than not, we will see several turtles enjoying the sea grass.
Depending on whether you choose a morning or afternoon charter, the infamous floating bar/restaurant Willy T is also another great option for a stop. Many guests enjoy a painkiller cocktail while there and if you are brave enough, you can jump off the top deck!
Lastly, we will make the run home back to port and get you back in plenty of time to enjoy the rest of your stay on Tortola.
We offer a variety of itineraries and destinations as we are just a short ride away from many islands. Step on board and enjoy the wonderful opportunity to ride on the majestic aqua waters of the BVI to incredible snorkeling sites.
DIRECTIONS VIA CAR TO VILLAGE CAY MARINA
Head towards the only set of traffic lights in town and turn towards the water (left if you are heading West out of town or right if you are heading into town). Take the next turning on the left and continue to the 3 way stop signs by Scotia Bank. Continue straight and take the second turn on the right and head to the dirt parking lot and park. Walk towards the water and take a right on the path and walk towards Village Cay. Walk through the open air restaurant and wait at the picnic tables. We will meet you there and walk you to the boat.
We prefer cash payment on the day of the charter. For your convenience, we are able to take credit cards which will incur a 2.75% processing fee and taxes. Gratuity is not included and while at your discretion 15-20% is customary and it is greatly appreciated.
