Tour Details

FIND A COMFORTABLE SPOT TO RELAX AS YOU PULL OUT OF AYH AND HEAD NORTH TOWARDS VIRGIN GORDA’S INFAMOUS BATHS.  KEEP YOUR CAMERA HANDY AS YOU WILL BE PASSING THROUGH ALL OF THE BVI ISLANDS AS YOU HEAD NORTH.  YOU WILL PASS MANY SMALLER ISLANDS ON YOUR RIGHT, MOST OF WHICH ARE NAMED AFTER PIRATES; NORMAN, PETER, COOPER, ETC.  AND ON YOUR LEFT WILL BE TORTOLA, YOU WILL NOTICE IT IS THE LARGEST OF THE BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS, TORTOLA.  YOU WILL BE CHECKING INTO CUSTOMS IN SPANISH TOWN, VIRGIN GORDA.  YOU WILL THEN HAVE THE OPTION TO TAKE A SAFARI TO THE TOP OF THE BATHS AND HIKE A SMALL TRAIL DOWN AND CONTINUE ON INTO THE BATHS OR THE CAPTAIN CAN ANCHOR OUT FROM THE BATHS AND YOU CAN SWIM IN.  THE EXPERIENCE IS JUST AS GOOD BOTH WAYS BUT THE SWIM OPTION WOULD BE THE MORE ACTIVE CHOICE, OVER THE SHORT DOWNHILL HIKE. THE BATHS ARE CAVERNOUS ROCK FORMATIONS THAT PROVIDE SOME OF THE MOST BREATHTAKING PHOTO OPS, IT WILL TAKE YOU AROUND AN HOUR OR SO TO TOUR THEM.  ONCE YOU ARE DONE YOU MAY CHOOSE TO GRAB A DRINK AND HANG OUT AT THE BEAUTIFUL BEACH IN DEVILS BAY OR HOP BACK ONTO THE BOAT AND BEGIN YOUR EXCURSION SOUTH.

YOU MAY RECOGNIZE YOUR SURROUNDINGS AS YOU BEGIN TO HEAD BACK SOUTH TOWARDS COOPER ISLAND, PASSING FALLEN JERUSALEM, ROUND ROCK, AND GINGER ISLAND FIRST AS YOU PULL INTO MANCHIONEEL BAY.  YOU WILL BE VISITING THE GORGEOUS COOPER ISLAND BEACH CLUB, A FAMILY OWNED ECO-RESORT THAT IS ONLY ACCESSIBLE BY PRIVATE BOAT.  ENJOY A RELAXING LUNCH AND CHECK OUT THE NEWLY OPENED COOPER ISLAND BREWING COMPANY, A SOLAR POWERED MICROBREWERY.

NOW WERE OFF TOWARDS JOST VAN DYKE, OR OTHERWISE SIMPLY KNOWN AS JOST (yost), THIS WILL TAKE US AROUND THE WEST END OF TORTOLA.  JOST IS HOME THE INFAMOUS SOGGY DOLLAR BAR WHICH RESIDES ON BEAUTIFUL WHITE BAY. WHILE HERE GRAB A DELICIOUS PAINKILLER OR TRY YOUR LUCK AT THE RING SWING GAME.  JOST BOASTS MANY OTHER BARS AS WELL; MIGHT I RECOMMEND A CHICKEN ROTI AND SOME MAMAWANNA FROM GERTRUDES, OR A NICE BOTTLE OF ROSE ON ICE FROM HENDO’S HIDEOUT.  WHATEVER YOUR SPEED, THERE IS A PLACE FOR YOU ON JVD.

YOU’VE HAD A LONG DAY SO SIT BACK AND RELAX AS YOU MAKE YOUR WAY BACK.  REMEMBER YOU HAVE TO CHECK BACK INTO THE US CUSTOMS OFFICE SO YOU WILL BE DOING THAT IN ST JOHN AND YOU HAVE TO GET THERE BEFORE IT CLOSES.  DON’T WORRY THOUGH THE PARTY WILL BE JUST BEGINNING AS HAPPY HOUR IS IN FULL SWING IN RED HOOK – MIGHT WE RECOMMEND ITP FOR SOME PIZZA OR TAP N STILL FOR A BURGER.
