Private Power Boat Day Trips
For our guests who are looking for more speed and places to see than our sailboats can go, we have added two powerboats to our fleet a 31ft Novurania and 32ft World Cat.
This is an all-inclusive day which covers all fuel costs so there are no additional costs at the end of the day. It also includes beers, sodas, water, snorkeling gear, cruising permits and all National Park fees. Lunch is taken ashore at your expense.
Private charters start at $1,500 depending on itinerary for up to 12 guests. The day typically starts at 9am and will return to the dock by 4pm.
Here is a sample itinerary for Run the Gamut Tour – our most popular powerboat trip!
This trip offers the best of what the British Virgin Islands has to offer. Step on board and enjoy the wonderful opportunity to ride on the majestic aqua waters of the BVI to incredible snorkeling sites.
Meet the powerboat at Village Cay Marina (if arriving by cruise ship) OR Hannah Bay Marina (if staying on island) and start your journey to Jost Van Dyke. We will stop at one of the three deserted islands of Sandy Spit, Sandy Cay or Little Jost for a snorkel and swim before heading to the home of the Painkiller, White Bay.
Next, we will head towards Norman Island where we can snorkel the Caves which is abundant with Sargant Majors and tangs or the underwater gardens of the Indians. You will want to experience the Pirate boat/bar/restaurant, the Willy T for a lunch stop. Only the strong and brave survive here as there is a 15-foot top deck that you are strongly encouraged NOT to jump from!
Moving onward towards the stunningly beautiful, awe inspiring Baths at Virgin Gorda. We will drop you off at Devil’s Bay, where you will swim from the boat into the beach and explore through the large geological boulders that have eroded over time. We will have the boat situated at the other end of the Baths to swim back to the boat.
Lastly, enjoy the exhilarating and smooth ride back to the docks where you will end your day.

Walk straight ahead and you will see Village Cay Marina. When the road curves to the left, stay to your right and follow the water’s edge to the Village Cay Marina restaurant & bar. Wait by the picnic table BEFORE the restaurant and the crew will walk you to the boat.
