The Coral Bay area and the National Park are wonderful to explore on foot, though there is a unique beauty to the bay and coast that can only be felt from the sea. With Calypso Charters, you will be able to explore the coast and sail through the sea with a trained and knowledgeable crew.
On Bad Kitty or Bad Kitty 2, guest can take the five stop, four island tour, which explores Virgin Gorda, Cooper Island, Norman Island and Jost Van Dyke. On the Calypso Sail to Jost Can Dyke, guests can snorkel along ST John's north shore, shop in Josh Van Dyke, swim or wade in White Bay and then enjoy the relaxing sail back to USVI.
Full day trips include continental breakfast, an open bar after snorkeling and snorkel gear and instruction.
All tours are $155 for adults and $95 for children under 12 years old; you must also bring $45 in cash for every person (for customs, national park fees, port authority fees and immigration).
Calypso Charters has three boats. The first is Calypso, which is a 40' sailing catamaran that seats up to 32 people and has a stern ladder, snorkeling equipment, a toilet and fresh water to rinse off. Then there's Bad Kitty and Bad Kitty 2, which are 49' power catamarans and have top sun decks, open stern seating, tables and seating inside, storage, a toilet, a stern stairway and a freshwater hose.
