A vacation in the Virgin Islands never disappoints, and here you will find many friendly locals, good food and scratch band music (called fungi music in the British part of the territories). There are also our beautiful azure waters and white sand beaches that beckon you to sunbathe and frolic within them. There are so many fun things to do in the Virgin Islands that it was hard for us to put our finger on the ultimate experience. However, when we polled our guests about the most enjoyable part of their trip, their reaction was unanimous. Their favorite experience cited, by far, was a vacation day or two spent boating on the Caribbean Sea’s gorgeous waves.
Besides winning our popularity contest, a boat day is the absolute BEST way to experience all of the activities, attractions and unspoiled scenery that make the Virgin Islands the trip of a lifetime. A trip by boat allows you to easily hop from one island to the next, allowing you to enjoy the best of what St. Thomas, St. John and the British Virgin Islands have to offer. Keep in mind that our neighbors in the British Virgin island won’t be reopening until September.
During your wondrous maritime excursion, you’ll get to revel at fun bars scattered along the shoreline, explore the best snorkeling locales and watch the green flash of an ethereal sunset on the horizon from your own private deck. Keep in mind that the sun sets fast; we’re talking just a few minutes here. The most unbelievable thing is that you can experience all that in just one amazing day!
What follows is a guide to chartering some of the excellent boat rentals and tours on the islands. However, keep in mind that rentals vary in occupancy, type of vessel and itinerary. Because of that, you will want to scroll through the different options and be well-versed in all that they offer.
One common theme you will notice about the boat tours is that they are unstructured – better to relax and enjoy the luxurious and laid back experience on your own terms. Simply ask the friendly captain their recommendations as to what are the best things to see and do during the trip. After the discussion, they will navigate to the preferences and interests you indicated.
At the end of each boat rental section, you will find pertinent information about the boat rentals, along with what to expect and boating costs. You’ll also want to check out our Experience page to discover all the exciting activities and recreation opportunities existing in the lovely and welcoming Virgin Islands.
