Swim up and have a cocktail or an ice cold beer from St. John Brewery on Coral Bay's Floating Bar- Angels Rest. Snorkel, or soak up the tropical sun on the top deck, or if you prefer, lounge on the daybeds. Or maybe you prefer to sit at the glass dining table with an open floor below. We also have our liquor licenses so if you see us anchored at Ms. Vie's or Hanson beach swim out for a cocktail and some fun! We provide dingy pick ups. We also do private charters 1/2 day, full day or sunset cruises.

It is a floating bar, everyone's having fun and it is in one of the most beautiful places in the world. We were there on a day when Vie's was closed and opted to park on the street by Hansen Bay. No problems. Stop by Skinny's on the way back to Cruz Bay.

This is a must visit for those who come to St John. Peter makes a strong but wonderful drink and the atmosphere is always amazing.

One of our new favorite places on St. John. We stay on the Coral Bay side of the Island for the Winter. Now that we've discovered Pete's bar, we will be frequent swimmers to his domain. He is a character with many stories to tell, a real people person. There's really not much more I can say ~ I mean;... More

We were delighted to happen upon Angel's Rest Bar at Hansen Bay. Where else can you snorkel up to a bar on pontoons & enjoy a rum punch?! Captain Peter was very friendly, and shared his story of coming up with a floating bar boat as an alternative to working construction; he said he'll soon be building another floating venture--this...

This is a funny and original appearance on the VIE's beach. Captain Peter a very ingenious entrepreneur and funny guy, serves excellent drink in his "swim on" bar. He comes every day between 11 and 12. You can have a good cocktail (everything is 5 dollars) and have a nice talk with the other swimmers who go there during a... More

A friend found Captain Pete's Angel's Rest boat docked at Hanson's Beach on the Eastern side of the island and called to see if he'd be back again the next day. We had a great time swimming out to the bar, sipping his delicious (and might strong!) Pain Killers and Rum Punch and snorkling around the boat on this beautiful... More

We stopped by while out with Captain Jason. Peter was very nice to pass 2 delicious rum punch drinks off his boat. No children allowed, which is great! He was super friendly and the houseboat he built himself was gorgeous, immaculately clean, and with a beautifully designed interior! We're going back this afternoon!

For our last day in St. John we hit up Vie's beach not knowing we were in for the best day on the island. When Captain Pete pulled up, we almost couldn't believe it was a floating bar docked at our beach! We swam up and spent the whole day swimming back and forth all while enjoying the best Rum... More

Captain Pete's Rum Punch is the best in the Virgin Islands. Better than pain-killers at Soggy Dollar!!! We swam out to his boat at Vi's for a rum punch (or two... maybe three) and swam (a little slower this time) back to the beach. What a riot! Don't miss the yellow boat experience.
