Had a blast. Easy pickup on dock. Roomy cameraman for our group.I didn't eat lunch at the restaurant so I can't comment on the food. Capt Joe was very nice and knowledgeable. I'd definitely do it again!

Hi! My husband, 7.5 year old daughter and I are looking to charter by cabin in the BVI for a week Dec 17-23. Can you please advise what our best options are? We have never done this and can't afford to charter an entire catamaran so we are looking for a shared charter.

We also took a day trip but I am aware that Joe does overnight charters. If I was wanting to do an overnight, he would be the first person I would call, as it was clear he was savvy to the area, was an expert sailor and was... More
Did this boat tour pick you up from the Norwegian escape cruise terminal or did you have to taxi to meet them at their location?
