With the chance to go reef snorkeling in White Bay and catch scenic views of JVD, this beach excursion is perfect for beach-going families and friends alike.

To kick off your excursion, you'll depart your ship the Romney-Pier Park, Tortola cruise ship pier, and catch the ferry to head to the beautiful island of Jost Van Dyke (JVD). While JVD may be known as the British Virgin Islands' smallest main island, it's jam-packed with tons of activities to do. This three-square-mile island dates back to the mid-18th century and is believed to be named after a former pirate and Dutch privateer names Joost van Dyk. Today, JVD is known for its sandy white beaches, laid-back restaurants and bars and yacht anchorages like the Great Harbour-a sheltered bay that attracts beachgoers and yachters year-round, thanks to its busy port and beach dotted with famed bars like Foxy's bar.

Once you set foot on the island, you'll get a chance to head to White Bay where you will have time to soak up the sun and relax on the white powdery sands of White Bay Beach, voted as one of the world's top ten beaches to visit. Enjoy refreshments at nearby popular bars like the iconic Soggy Dollar on White Bay Beach or head to Great Harbour to sample local delights at Rudy's and Foxy's beach bars, before returning to your port.

From catching picturesque bay views while sipping on refreshments from award-winning bars to snorkeling along a reef, this beach tour offers much to explore! Sign up for this exciting JVD beach excursion today and experience a relaxing time in the British Virgin Islands.

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.

great day!

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

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.
