An experience that we will never forget. Perfect day! We toured the Bathes, snorkeled, had lunch at Cooper Island and finished our day at Soggy Dollar. Everything about this day was perfect! So much fun!! We were sad for the day to end. :)

What an adventure! Captain Mike, Julie and Scott were friendly, professional and knowledgeable but most of all Fun! They navigated all 25 of us to each activity seamlessly to get the most out of each island stop! A must if you are staying in St Thomas or St Johns!!

We booked the 'best of the bvis' trip last Saturday & it did not disappoint! From the second we got on board, Lexi, Justin & Capt. Jeremy made us feel right at home. They were helpful in explaining different sights & what to expect at our various stops. We completely lucked out at the Baths--there were only a few people... More

Great trip. Crew was great. They were funny and very professional. We had plenty of time at Baths. We did swim in and out to the boat. That was fun. Our tour was great, tons of information and history. We got to snorkel over the Rhone, which sunk in 1860 something. We had tons of time for lunch on Cooper... More

My husband and I sailed with Bad Kitty in December on the 5-Stop 4 Island Tour and had a great experience. The crew was very friendly, professional, and entertaining. They were knowledgeable about the islands and offered plenty of interesting information as well as pirate & shipwreck stories. Walking, climbing, and tunneling through the baths was a fun time and...

Booked our sunset cruise for Valentine's Day with our UNH friends from years ago. We had a wonderful evening and made many more friends that were passengers. Kara and Kevin are welcoming and gracious hosts. Great food and drink (some of the best Painkillers and Rum Punch we've had). We enjoyed it so much that we're coming back for Valentine's... More

Conveniently located out of Cruz Bay, Bad Kitty was a great way for us to tour Tortola and the other British Virgin Islands. Clearly the best way to visit these islands is from the water, and this day long charter up and around Francis Drake Channel had us in and out of a harbors and beaches. Nice combination of relaxing... More

Our first time on Bad Kitty. Couldn't have been better. 18 people on the boat which can hold 33, so plenty of room to sit and move around. Good, calm weather helped a lot- saw several whales and a large turtle, and an opportunity to snorkel at Norman island with its shipwreck. Staff - Lexie Sarah and captain Jeremy were... More

The staff is fabulous and made us feel welcome immediately. The crew moved our group through the "tour" expertly. We never felt rushed but our trip included the Baths, a stop for lunch, snorkeling, a stop at the 6th most beautiful beach, the Soggy Dollar bar (originator of the drink the Painkiller) and a history lesson of it all.
