Explore the US and British Virgin Islands on Stormy Petrel & Pirate’s Penny

Join us on your choice of two spectacular BVI adventures or book a private charter and we’ll help you create your own adventure.

Our per-person trips take you to snorkel and explore the natural wonders of the Baths on Virgin Gorda and lunch at the Cooper Island Beach Club. In the afternoon, either snorkel a remote reef or sip Painkillers at the infamous Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke.

We offer a complimentary open bar, snorkel gear, floats and fresh water rinse. All you need is casual attire and a valid passport.

Our 42′ custom power cruisers are built to exacting U.S. Coast Guard standards. They are fully equipped and designed to comfortably and safely accommodate intimate groups of no more than 12 guests.

Your fun and experienced captain and crew will provide historical insights, skilled snorkeling instruction, and entertain you with tales of local folklore.

We originated the Island Hopping Trip and have been sharing and perfecting the experience ever since.

Good Morning Everyone!! I'm so so sorry for the serious delay in posting. We've been slightly preoccupied post Irma & Maria! 😉

An update on the boats:

Pirates Penny is without damage. If you had seen the boatyard she is located, you would be shocked by this! She still has a few standard off-season projects to be completed prior to splashing. We hope to put her in the water in November. We will keep you updated on this!

Stormy Petrel took a mast from a neighboring sailboat to the wheel house. We're happy to announce that she is repairable!! She will have to stay on the hard a little longer than she would like though. 😒

We love you all! The islands have changed dramastically but the rebuild efforts have been impressive. It will be a while before our islands are back to 'normal' but our water is still breathtaking!

We can't wait to see you all again, sooner than later!

All the best,

~Captain Meagan
