The Day trip to Jost van Dyke – Soggy Dollar Bar is still our most popular trip but there has not been much news lately, and there is no need to because why change something that is awesome 365 days per year?

However today we have 2 exciting pieces of news from Soggy Dollar Bar, the “sunny place for shady people” who invented the famous Painkiller.

Tina’s Retirement – Octoberfest party on October 13th


Message from Jerry and Tish

After 16 years we are officially announcing the retirement of Martina (Tina) Chinnery , our General Manager, as of August 31, 2015.
There really aren’t sufficient words to express the gratitude we feel for all the hard work and love Tina has demonstrated in her time here. Her genuine hospitality, expert leadership and fierce determination have propelled Sandcastle/Soggy Dollar to a place we could only have imagined.

The Sandcastle/Soggy Dollar Staff will be celebrating Tina’s Retirement at an Octoberfest party on Tuesday, October 13 to show our gratitude for all she has contributed over the last 16 years to make Sandcastle and Soggy Dollar an unforgettable and special place.

If you would like to send a note of congratulations or share a story for Tina, we will be collecting them to present to her at the party.

Please send your email to Tish at or mail USPS Priority your sharing to:

We look forward to seeing you soon on White Bay and thank you for all your continued support.

Like myself, Tina is of German origin and she will celebrate her Retirement with an Oktoberfest Party. Having worked at Oktoberfest for 5 years (17 consecutive days, 12 hours per day each year – picture below) I am very much looking forward to this. Oktoberfest and Soggy Dollar Bar this is the combination of the worlds 2 most fabulous parties. I will bring my Dirndl, that’s for sure.

Want to book a day trip? We are currently open on October 13th. Reserve here now
