Private Boat Excursions around the US and British Virgin Islands
From US$ 750.00
Overview

Escape the tourist crowds and explore the US and British Virgin Islands at your own pace on a private boat excursion from St. John or St. Thomas. Sunbathe on the boat’s deck, snorkel and swim in the refreshing waters, or island hop for an intimate sightseeing experience, benefiting from insight and tips provided by your captain on a fully customizable tour.

What to Expect
Gypsea Girl departs at 8:30am from either the National Park Dock in St. John or Sapphire Marina in St.Thomas, depending which island you are staying on.  You will be dropped off at the same location at 4:30pm.

Gypsea Girl can take up to 6 passengers at the listed price.  Additional passengers upon request, up to 11.  Private charters include your private boat and Captain, snorkel gear, floats and a fresh water rinse. The cooler is stocked with complimentary ice, water, and a limited assortment of soft drinks and beer.  There is plenty of dry storage for your personal belongings.

This is a private charter so your itinerary is completely customizable!  You can choose to stay in local waters and explore the numerous outer cays for some snorkeling and exploration or choose to venture over to the British Virgin Islands!  Passports are mandatory for British Virgin Island trips.  Visit the breathtaking Baths of Virgin Gorda, snorkel the Caves of Norman Islands, and end the day with a refreshing Painkiller at the famous Soggy Dollar Bar!  It's your day, your way!

For whatever you've got in mind: Snorkeling, exploring, cruising, island hopping, sunning or sightseeing, "Gypsea Girl" has you covered!
