Jost Van Dyke Escape

Worth it!
January 08, 2024
We had one of the best days! Our guide was nice and friendly and we got to go to Foxies as well which other groups don’t go. The beach was amazing and definitely worth the extra money. We spent more time there than most tours! Loved it!!

Perfect Beach Day
November 20, 2023
I thoroughly enjoyed my excursion to Jost Van Dyke. It was easy to find the tour representative when arriving in port, and we had a beautiful boat ride out to the island. We were met by a taxi who took us right to the beach. There were plenty of chairs, and food & drink were available for purchase. The beach was very pretty as was the water. It was the ideal length of stay, enough to take it all in but not too long to get worn out. I would definitely return!

Fantastic Day!!!
November 01, 2023
We were met immediately upon arrival in Tortola, and guides were very easy to locate. Our guide for the day was fantastic!!! She checked in with us frequently, and being a local to the area, had very informative information to share with us. We loved the beach they took us to in Jost Van Dyke, complete with at least two restaurant/bars, which had great food and drinks. We enjoyed the seclusion as well as the beautiful beach! I would highly recommend this for the perfect Caribbean getaway for the day!!!

Best Day Ever!
October 28, 2023
So glad we chose this excursion. It ended up being our favorite day of our cruise. Great communication on where to meet in the morning (it was right in the port), friendly and efficient staff got us on our way quickly. The water taxi ride was about 30 minutes and a quick bus ride to the beach.. y’all this beach is the most beautiful we’ve ever seen. We grabbed some shady seats and played in the stunning blue water. Our guide, Shantay, stayed right there with us. The Soggy Dollar bar served up delicious painkillers and even some tasty food options. The fish & chips and coconut shrimp were outstanding. Shout out to Big Bird who took great care of us. We did not want to leave when it was time. If you are nervous to book a non- ship excursion do not not hesitate to book this one. It’s sooo worth it.

Worth the trip!

After our ship sponsored excursion cancelled, we booked this and will do it again in a heartbeat! The rep met us right at the end of the dock. Soggy Dollar was beautiful and of course, they had delicious drinks! Bucket list place for me and we were not disappointed! Thanks for the amazing experience!

Jost Van Dyke/Tortola BVI
June 29, 2023
This was the BEST excursion and the most gorgeous beach I have ever seen!!! Hendo’s Hideout had good food and strong drinks. I’d love to vacation in the thatched roof huts one day, too. You will NOT be disappointed in this excursion…except when you have to leave!

Jost VanDyke Escape was the Highlight of my cruise
June 28, 2023
Jost Van Dyke Escape was fantastic from beginning to end. Everyone employee was polite and professional. I wish this was a longer excursion. I didn't want it to end! Special thanks to our tour guide, our water taxi employees and our tram drivers. Oh, the bar tenders were great too! Thanks for some great memories!

What an AMAZING Beach
June 22, 2023
My only complaint about this excursion was it was TOO SHORT! The beach was PHENOMINAL.. our tour host was lovely. He was so professional, helpful, friendly, and informative! It was very easy to connect with the tour once we exited the pier that morning and easy to find the group. For our 7 day cruise on NCL, this was our absolute favorite stop and favorite excursion. We have rebooked another cruise for next year and plan to go back to Tortola and hope this excursion is still on the schedule b/c we will definitely go!! Just make it a longer stay on the beach!!!

LOVED our day at Jost Van Dyke
April 06, 2023
We had a wonderful time at beautiful Jost Van Dyke playing in the ocean and drinking Painkillers at the Soggy Dollar. I just wish it could have been longer, but our cruise ship had to leave at 2pm. We will definitely go back whenever we are in the BVI again.

Lovely boat ride to island, followed by open bus transport to beach area. Great drinks, decent food, and great times. Ocean was very rough the day we were there but still an enjoyable day in paradise!

The boat ride over to Jost Van Dyke was great- a little bumpy, but beautiful views. You take a taxi ride up and down the hills to get to the beach- can be a little cramped. Once at the beach, be sure to stop at Soggy Dollar and try a famous Painkiller! The views were amazing and very peaceful. The beach is clean and not crowded.

Everything on this excursion went smoothly. From pick up at the ship, ride to the water taxi and return to the ship, all went as planned. The water taxi ride was fun and I wouldn't have wanted to manage all of that on my own during my first visit. Our host handled everything and checked in on us while we were at the beach. They even added a stop to Foxy's on the way back, which was a special treat. I will definitely go back to this place and highly recommend this tour operator.

This excursion went very smoothly from a logistical standpoint, from easy pick up to timely drop-off. The water taxi was a picturesque ride and the beach at Soggy Dollar was great. Our guide checked in with us a few times on the beach and graciously took some group pics for us. We were excited about an unplanned stop at Foxys bar on the way back to the ship! Would highly recommend this tour.

Fun Excursion to the Soggy Dollar Bar
January 06, 2023
The excursion from Tortola to Jost Van Dyke was a fun day trip to the famed Soggy Dollar bar. We boarded a ferry for the 20-30 minute boat ride to Jost Van Dyke. Arriving there, we took a short ride in a open air keep to a secluded beach on the island. We enjoyed drinks at the famous “Soggy Dollar Bar” and also had lunch there. Later we took a drive to the “Foxy Bar” down the road, before going back to our ferry for the trip back to Tortola. We enjoyed the ferry ride and the “bar hopping”, although the bartender at Foxy seemed overwhelmed by our arrival.

We were the only ones on this tour and had a private guide stay with us all day and give us very personal attention. Couldn’t have been better.

Easy and convenient
April 12, 2022
Transfer was easy to find right off the ship. Very friendly! Clearly communicated the plan for the day. Took us to the ferry, over to Jost Van Dyke and even stayed at the beach with us the whole time. They dropped us off right at the Soggy Dollar where there was plenty of chairs and picnic tables for free, food and drinks available for purchase and trees for shade. Perfect day at the beach! Then they brought us back the same way right to the ship.

Great excursion!
February 02, 2022
We enjoyed our excursion very much! We easily found our meeting point and made our way to the shuttle bus that took us to the water taxi (this is a public taxi). The ride over was about 10 minutes - lovely views! From the dock, we then took an open bus over to Soggy Dollar bar. We were the first people there for the day. It's beautiful there with water so clear you can see straight down. Wings and drinks were delicious. Our guide was friendly and made sure we were all OK. Don't hesitate to book this excursion and see Jost van Dyke for yourself!
