Half Day Boat Trip: Best of St. John

See the island from the water. Explore what St. John is known for: turquoise water, white sand beaches, sea turtles, dolphins, etc. We will take you out to Whisling Cay to visit the old customs house and some snorkeling and then cruise back along the North Shore, past Francis, Maho, Cinnamon, Trunk, Hawksnest, Dennis and can top at Henley Cay / Lovango for more snorkeling. We can also stop at the Pizza Boat near Little St. James for some delicious, fresh pizza (if it is open that day)

The timing and route is flexible, one thing is certain: You will see the Best of St. John at a great price for only 350$ incl. Captain and fuel with no hidden charges!

Anegada Lobster Festival, Nov 29th

The Anegada Lobster Festival is for everyone who loves food, loves lobster, loves the Caribbean and dreams of the British Virgin Islands! Rock Hoppin’ will be heading there and we might have a few free spaces. Email info(at)rockhoppin.com if you are interested.

Anegada Lobster Festival 2014 Participating Restaurants Map is a two-day culinary event held on the shores of Anegada on November 29th and 30th. The event was created to entice our community, visitors, new travellers and the niche market of food connoisseurs to the shores of the British Virgin Islands to experience our versatile tourism product.

The British Virgin Islands Tourist Board, together with the population of Anegada, will feature talented local chefs who will be on hand to prepare, cook, and serve plated sample lobster dishes at participating Anegada restaurants. Over the course of two days, attendees will embark on an island adventure that will take them on a culinary journey via safari, scooter or rental car. Participants will dine on three different lobster samplers at each restaurant at a cost of $10-$12 per sampler plate.

Along with spectacular sightseeing, great food, drink, and a sunset party, attendees will have a unique Anegada experience unlike any other in the Caribbean.

Culinary tourism has increasingly sparked interest amongst travellers worldwide that seek to experience a destination’s local culture through authentic dining opportunities.

Gonzalo missed us and the new hats have arrived

Rockhoppin Powerboat Charters USVI First of all, we are really grateful that hurricane Gonzalo, that was headed straight for the USVI magically turned North and missed us. We had taken all boards down from the roof onto the veranda and towed the boat out of water, better safe than sorry. A few days later, the boards are back on the roof and the boat is back in the water. Read More
