Pros- Stops were all excellent- Norman island caves were exciting and the snorkeling was better than expected.Huge schools of minnows at the first cave entrance and a fair number of fish swimming...

The forty-nine foot customized catamaran makes it unlike any other day cruise. The power of the boat is in juxtaposition to the smooth and comfortable ride, allowing the crew to transport passengers to several tropical experiences within one perfect day! The start of the day was a bit tedious due to the required paperwork, but this was dealt with efficiently.... More

What a terrific time. The crew is so helpful and dedicated to everyone having a good time. My husband lost our Otter Box holding all our cash, and Captain Jeremy - who had overheard a guest on the Bad Kitty 2 talking about finding a "yellow container" - helped us recover it. Jeremy, Justin, Karah - great crew. Excellent time... More

We enjoyed our trip to the BVI - especially the Baths and snorkeling off of Norman Island. The speed of the catamaran enabled us to visit several places in a few hours. A great time!

I spent a wonderful day on the water on the Bad Kitty during my recent visit to St. John. I loved the visits to the Baths, Cooper Island and Norman Island. The crew was absolutely great, Kate and Kara were great hostesses and the captain was very good! They were all extremely organized, but also extremely congenial! I would definitely... More

Went out with crew Chris, Scottie, and Julie for what has been the absolute highlight of the trip. The boats they run are very fast and smooth, and my "normally seasick" wife never felt a thing. We visited delightful destinations that others go into detail here, but I don't recall when 8 hours went by so quickly. What a memory,... More

A lot has changed on Bad Kitty in the last few years. First, they only serve liquor after snorkeling. So, basically they only serve for the last hour and a half or so. It used to be all days drinks. The captain (Jeremy) informed us first thing after we left the dock that they were not going to Jost that... More

Best trip of our vacation by far. We started out from Red Hook.. the first stop is over to St John where you pick up additional travelers. Then it's over to Virgin Gorda where you 1) go through customs, 2) use the bathroom, and 3) grab a drink to go from the bar there. Then it's over to the Baths... More

We spent the day with Capt. Chris, Kate and Julie on 03/06 and had a great time visiting the BVIs. They were very knowledgeable about the area and equally as entertaining. Definitely would do this again!

We went out with captain Jeremy, and crew Cara and Kate. They made sure that everyone had a great time, and mixed awesome pain-killers and rum punch. They even had Oreos at the end of the day to dunk in our cocktails (which was more delicious than it originally sounded). A rental sailboat cut our anchor line while we were... More
