A New Way to Get to the BVI!

Now this looks like paradise…

Hello everyone, and happy Tuesday! Let’s talk about the British Virgin Islands, shall we?

I am super excited to tell you all that there is a brand new way to get over to the BVI! Cruz Bay Watersports, which is based out of the Westin on St. John and out of the Ritz Carlton on St. Thomas, is now offering weekly trips to Jost van Dyke. Cruz Bay Watersports is the only St. John-based company that allows you to purchase a spot on a multi-passenger boat, as opposed to chartering an entire vessel to the BVI.

Cruz Bay Watersports is now offering Jost van Dyke trips every Tuesday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., departing from the Westin dock. Guests will sail aboard a luxury 65-foot catamaran for a day of sun and a lot of fun. Guests will first visit Great Harbor, Jost van Dyke where the crew will clear you through Customs. You will then spend the day enjoying picturesque White Bay, home to the Soggy Dollar Bar, One Love, Gertrudes, Hendo’s Hideout and some of the most beautiful water you’ve ever seen!

The cost of this trip is $199 for adults and $149 for children ages 12 and under. There is an additional $75 fee for Customs. You must have a valid passport to book this trip. The trip includes a continental breakfast, open bar, snorkel gear, towels, flotation devices, and fresh water showers onboard. Lunch is not included.

And because Cruz Bay Watersports appreciates everyone who calls St. John home, they are offering a 40%-off local discount through November 1st. You must be a full-time USVI resident to receive the discounted rate.(The 40% comes off of the base price, not the Customs fee.) All you have to do is email Cruz Bay Watersports after booking, and they will apply the discount.

Cruz Bay Watersports also offers Discover Jost van Dyke trips out of the Ritz Carlton on St. Thomas every Thursday.

Lastly, Inter Island Boat Services offers ferry service between Cruz Bay and Great Harbor, Jost van Dyke every Sunday, Tuesday and Friday. Click here for more information on that.

I don’t know about you, but I love a good BVI day! Cheers!
