    I'Ve looked into all of the options for island hopping for the day from St Thomas neighboring Islands. I was at the Marriott Frenchman's Cove one day and someone told me of a captain who will take 6 folks to multiple islands for the day. He told me the name of the boat and I don't remember. Does anyone know if such a service. I'd like to see maybe 2 or 3 islands quick stops. Anyone have a good suggestion from something they did?

    We used Pocket Yachts. Captain Tobie Welch: 1-340-690-6015 or captaintobie @gmail.com . We went to Jost Van Dyke, the baths on Virgin Gorda and to Saint John and we also snorkeled in a few different spots all along the trip. We had a full day on the boat and a most enjoyable time. There were 6 of us and we rented a 29 foot Scarab with a captain. It ran about 650.00 including fuel but that was a few years ago.
    Good Luck,
    Mahlon

    We took Bad Kitty out of Red Hook. We went over to Cruz Bay on St. John's, then to Virgin Gorda, Cooper Island, Norman Island, Jost van Dyke and back to St. John's.

    The cost was about $200 per person including entrance fees into the BVIs.

    We've used New Horizons for dinner cruise and Virgin Gorda. The Virgin Gorda cruise stops at four islands including Whites Beach and the Soggy Dollar bar. https://www.visitbreakaway.com/

    If you plan to go to Virgin Gorda (The Baths) - highly recommend Bad Kitty (Calypso). By far the fastest and smoothest ride.

    Stay on St John. Take the ferries wherever you want to sight see. You can thank me later.

    I highly recommend the Bad Kitty II. The captain and 2 mates were excellent. They were so helpful and friendly, and the bar was fully stocked.
