It's so funny reading some negative reviews, as many of the negatives state that the itinerary changed and they weren't able to follow it per the brochure, or that people felt rushed. Please, PLEASE understand a few things before booking: First, as it states, the...More

The Bad Kitty crew was first rate! They made the entire experience very enjoyable. The trip involves a fairly large boat with about 25-30 passengers. Your view on that is personal. The boat itself being larger is a very comfortable ride and the seas between...More

My husband and I rented a dinghy boat for half a day. Best money we spent! We were able to see the various St John beaches at our own pace. Great experience!

Not worth the money spent. We didn't go to Spanish Town. One of the main reasons we went was to snorkel in the caves at Norman Island but unfortunately we didn't go. Instead the captain took us to another area that was not worth the...More

Wear your drinking shoes! Seriously, wear a bathing suit, a long sleeved t-shirt (will prevent some sunburn), and shoes to walk to the boat and to the lunch place. All shoes go into a bin as you get onto the boat. You are... More

Do any of the Bad Kitty tours take you to Foxy's ?

We've done the 5/4 Bad Kitty trip 5 times in the past and have never gone to Foxy's. We have gone to White Bay every time (Soggy Dollar, One Love, Gertrudes's, Hendo's). This is a great trip!
Do you have to wear the yellow life vests the whole time you are at The Baths, or just while swimming to shore? Did you have to wear them any other time? Did you have enough time at Norman/Caves? Thanks for your help!

I think we had ample time in the caves. Maybe 15 minutes. Most people just kept life jackets on because you arrive and leave the baths at different locations. That was the only time we wore them
