Oh, how we missed it. The beautiful beaches of White Bay, the Painkillers at legendary Soggy Dollar Bar, hell, even the customs stop for check-in. Well, almost 3 years later, the regulations that made it pretty much impossible for USVI based boats to head over have been removed and we are taking bookings again starting January 1st. We do anticipate to re-open a little earlier, mid-December.
Our comfortable 32ft Powerboat with twin Yamaha 300s and cushioned, forward-facing seating will take you to visit beautiful White Bay on Jost van Dyke, we can stop at Sandy Cay or Sandy Spit, B-Line and then hang out at Soggy Dollar Bar, Hendo’s Hideout and all the other legendary bars in White Bay.
All our prices are for a private charter of maximal 6 and include captain and fuel. No waiting to re-fuel boat at crowded fuel dock at end of charter. Not included: gratuity for captain (20%) and BVI fees (approx. 80$ per person, subject to change).
If you have more than 6 people, please put that in notes field. There is an extra charge of 100$ per extra guest, we can take 10 to Jost, 8 to Norman Island/Willy T. and 6 to Virgin Gorda.
We leave from National Park Dock at 8:00.

The day trip to Jost van Dyke (BVI) is our most popular Charter Trip but when we have a day or two off, we also very much like going there ourselves on our Powerboat! Here are the photos of a recent trip. We had 2 days off, the weather forecast was good and we decided to spend the night there on the boat, anchored in White Bay, under a make-shift tarp we made from a hammock. This also gave us some time to play around with the night lights, we put in a new control unit and got the color change to work. We took plenty of food in our cooler and cooked dinner on the boat with our small gas stove and had breakfast at Soggy Dollar Bar the next morning.
After weeks of waiting, our new powerboat, a 32 FS Regulator, finally made it’s way from Hilton Head down to St. Thomas, where we picked it up on Tuesday, safely without any damages or items missing, just very dirty from the long journey. And it had an empty round on the dashboard. Not sure we want to know where that came from…. Read More
We islanders call our island “rock”. Rockhoppin’ Adventures will take you from rock to rock, island to island, exploring the most spectacular places in the USVI and BVIs, either via Paddleboard (SUP) or on our 32 foot charter boat on a private charter for the day.
That’s why we decided to call our company Rockhoppin’ Adventures LLC which is the mother for Rockhoppin’ Charters and SUP St. John.
