with the BVI customs fees further increasing August 1st, 2017 and the additional BVI “environmental impact fee” (adding up to about 67$ per person for a BVI trip) we have added a new USVI bar hopping & snorkeling trip to our offering, it is a longer ride vs. Jost van Dyke, BVI but will be cheaper or the same price as Jost van Dyke plus customs.
USVI bar hopping and snorkeling day trip from St. John
Stops can include but are not limited to Dinghy’s Beach bar on Water Island, St. Thomas, Abi Beach Bar (Green Cay, St. Thomas) and Tickles (Crown Bay). We can also stop for some snorkeling in between for example at Christmas Cove, little St. James.
Please note the South of St. Thomas can be a very rough stretch of water so this trip is only advised on calm days. If it is rough we can skip water island or you can change the destination to Jost van Dyke or stay local around St. John.
Abi Beach Bar
Abi is a cool bar right on the beach near Green Cay St. Thomas. Aside from great food and drinks it offers comfortable loungers on the beach, beach volleyball, paddleboarding, cornhole toss and more. Just a cool place to hang out and the food is really good too.
The Bar open from 10 am every day, they are serving food from 11 am until 4 pm Monday to Saturday. They have Sunday brunch from 11am – 1 pm and from menu and specials from 1-5 pm.
It is quieter and more relaxed vs. Soggy Dollar Bar and even on a busy day it will not feel crowded as their grounds are huge with plenty of space to hang out
Dinghy’s, Water Island
Dinghy’s Beach Bar & Grill is located on beautiful Honeymoon Beach, Water Island, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. Find yourself limin’ out in one of our hammocks with ice cold beverages and enjoy delicious local cuisine.
