Indians and Caves Full Day Charter

For those who want one of the premier snorkel spots of the Virgin Islands Norman Island with it's Treasure Caves, the BVI marine Sanctuary and the Indians rock pinnacle snorkeling is a fabulous choice of itinerary.

We'll depart St John at 8:30 for a 45 min ride North to Jost Van Dyke for Customs clearance and a peak at the lovely, little West Indian village. Clearing Customs requires passports and customs paperwork to be filled out in advance along with $45 Cash Per Person for Customs. A 45 min ride East along Tortolla's south side and up the Sir Francis drake Channel (also known as Pirate's Alley for all the many ships that passed through). The Channel is lined with islands named for the infamous English Pirates that preyed on cargo ships and plundered the many wrecks on the treacherous Anegada reefs.

If you are ready for some snorkeling you can get your fill at the "Indians" BVI marine park- touted as among the best the BVI has to offer. After you've had your fill of real life "Imax" visions of fish and coral you can rest aboard while we head into Bite Bay on Norman Island for lunch on board (if you packed your own) or hit the white sand beach at "Pirate's Beach Bar and Restaurant" and inquire about the 1750's Treasure Coins recovered on the island.

Once you've had your beachside lunch we can decide whether to stop at the "Willy T" floating bar (an old ship anchored in the bay) or opt for one of several other snorkel sites like the Treasure Caves, Pelican Island or Bite Bay Point.

We'll begin our return voyage around 2:30 heading for US Customs via a scenic shoreline cruise of St. John arriving around 3:30, hopefully clearing customs by 4 and returning to Great Cruz Bay after a memorable pirates passage excursion!

Please note that we can combine parts of the Jost trip with this Indians/Cave excursion for a customized itinerary-- just keep in mind that the days pace may not be as casual the more you try to fit into it.
