The tour includes lunch and an open bar.
This 9-hour tour brings you to the best of the best in the British Virgin Islands. Start your day with a boat ride from St Thomas and St John. During the trip, enjoy coffee and a continental breakfast. Dock at the Baths on the island of Virgin Gorda, 1.2 miles (2 km) from Spanish Town, one of the largest towns in the British Virgin Islands. Thanks to massive rock formations on the white sand beach, the baths are actually a fun, natural water park of tidal pools, arches, hidden grottoes and tunnels.
From Virgin Gorda, head to Diamond Reef, where you can snorkel and check out hundreds of colorful fish in the uncrowded waters. Then its on to world-famous Pussers Resturant on Marina Cay for some delicious, traditional island fare (own expense). Munch on fresh seafood delights or enjoy steak or barbecued ribs. Walk off your lunch with a jaunt around the island, taking in the views and the ruins that litter the land.
The island of Jost Van Dyke is the next stop. On this island of just 200 inhabitants, you can take a dip in the sea, lie on the beach, go snorkeling, relax in a hammock or cozy up to a beachside bar for a painkiller, the potent local cocktail. Theres also plenty of shopping on the island at various small boutiques.
Jump back on the boat a bit later for the trip back to the US Virgin Islands. Indulge in the open bar with snacks on the boat and toast your traveling companions on a fun day out.
