I can't get over how awesome the crew was! Lexi, Kevin, Chutney and Doug were seriously so knowledgeable and fun. Every stop we took in the BVI was breathtakingly beautiful. Our first stop was at the Baths in Virgin Gorda and we were lucky enough to check them out on a day with no cruise ships so the Devils Bay... More

This trip was great. We did this with our two teenaged daughters on the last day of our trip to St Thomas and it was the best day yet. The boat ride was smooth and pleasant, and within our group of about 20 people we made fast friends. The crew of 3 was very attentive and personable, and knew what... More

The day to the BVI with the Bad Kitty Captain and Crew was the highlight of our trip. The all female crew was outstanding. They were very safety conscious and accommodated people of all different abilities. A swell came in when we went so it was a rough ride to the Baths. However the boat really cut through the waves...

This was a fun trip and very well run. The only downsides are as follows: The baths on virgin Gorda are extremely crowded. Additionally they do not enforce the one way traffic flow leading to numerous human traffic jams in relatively tight spaces. Not the tours fault but worth pointing out if you do not like tight quarters. The snorkel... More

We have been on many boat excursion but this was one of the best. The size of the boat and the amount of guest was just right. The crew were excellent. Very personal with never ending information about the islands. They also had a great deal of tolerance as we got "happier" throughout the day. Great site seeing and tours... More
