Jost Van Dyke Full Day Charter

If you're looking for a great adventure in the BVI you could easily fill your day with bar hopping at some of the most notable rum bars in all the Caribbean including Soggy Dollar, Ivan's Stress Free, Foxy's, Sidney's Peace and Love, and Foxy's Taboo. Or....mix up your day with some beach combing and snorkeling at several off shore cays and then hit the famous watering holes on Jost. Clearing Customs requires passports and customs paperwork to be filled out in advance along with $45 Cash Per Person for Customs.

Can't decide? The Captain's favorite "Something for Everyone Tour" would go something like this: depart St John 8:30 for a 30-40 min ride to Jost Van Dyke, after clearing customs, you are free to walk the white sand "Main" street of this West Indian village called Great Harbor which is lined with ramshackle hot food stands, trinket stalls, churches and of course some of those seaside bars.

A short 15 minute ride would take us to the North East corner of Jost to choose a stop for beachcombing, swimming or snorkeling at Green Cay, Sandy Spit, Little Jost or Sandy Cay.

Once you have worked up an appetite we can either: picnic on the beach or choose a calm anchorage while you eat on board -for those who've packed their own lunch; Or stop at one of the best "Pour Your Own" waterside bars/restaurant in these latitudes "Sydney's Peace and Love"; pick out your own local caught lobster from the wharfside, underwater cage, relax and get on island time while they prepare your fresh cooked lunch. If you can let yourself grab a lower gear you can get in sync (if only for a little while) with the local pace and attitude-- No worries Mon!

After lunch we'll head back out to enjoy whatever you choose next; shoreline cruise, swim, snorkel, beach lounging, bar hopping... The day never seems long enough to do it all!

We'll depart Jost around 2:30 to arrive at US Customs ahead of the Tortolla and Virgin Gorda Ferries and all the other day boats that clear customs from 3:30-4 in Cruz Bay.

We should be through Customs and back in Great Cruz Bay by 4:30- with plenty of time for you to relax and refresh before your evening plans begin.

The most common mistake (to my mind) that people make is using Jost as a "Pit Stop" for customs and then zooming off to other islands without slowing down enough to truly enjoy this little island. Only 300+ people, they only just got electricity about 20 years ago..the roads main street is still sand, and YES...most of the residents are truly glad you came to share their spot in the sun! "Jost Van Dyke" named for the Dutch pirate--come get the feel of the West Indies!

Please note that we can combine parts of this trip with the "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!
