One should not leave St. Thomas without visting our British neighbours and seeing their beautiful islands! Participants on this outting will be going "foreign" and will need to bring their passport or birth certificate.

Our chartered vessels (all fast center consoles with a max of 6 passengers) will leave Red Hook's AYH Marina promply at 10:00 a.m. to head over to the "fun" island named Jost Van Dyke. Along the way there is a stop in a sheltered cove on St. John for a morning swim (those wanting to snorkel must bring their own equipment) and afterwards, we'll cross over into BVI waters. Upon clearing BVI Customs, participants can have lunch (not included) at the famous beach bar named Foxy's. After lunch we are back onboard for an hour swim and rest stop on the remote island of Sandy Cay (small and beautiful and in photo above left) for an early afternoon swim.

Time now to get of out of the sun - so we'll head to White Bay on the western end of Jost Van Dyke. Guests swim ashore and walk up to the famous Soggy Dollar Bar where the party really gets going... when the partakers start to feel the island's famous drink known as the Pain Killer! Everyone is well relaxed now... time to head back to St. Thomas in time to see the tournament boats arriving the Red Hook docks. What a great day!

Trip includes: Boat trip, captain/guide, BVI Custom's fees, non-alcholic refreshments and 4 fun stops (3 for swimming). Trip does not include tip for captain, lunch or drinks ashore (bringing along a little cash for souvenirs is a good idea). Snorkeling equipment can be rented from dive shop at AYH marina. A valid passport is required!
