See the BVI in a fast rigid inflatable boat (RIB)
There are so many attractions in the British Virgin Islands and it is not easy to always do everything you planned when you come to these beautiful Caribbean islands. So the best way to see most of the stunning beaches, bars and remote islands is to rent a RIB or go on one of many tour options with a local reliable company. Adventure tours are taking off everywhere and it has always been a fun experience, no matter where you go. Here are a few of the tours to consider and if you want to do it yourself, there are 2 boats for rent so get you there at your own pace. See the Video.
The British Virgin Islands offers numerous secluded snorkel sites that our team understand thoroughly. Snorkel tours depart from Tortola, and can be created around weather conditions and our guest’s level of ability. Some of the preferred spots are the Indians, Cooper Island, the caves, world famous Baths and many in between.
Depending on the party, we can get more adventurous with remote reefs such the Indians and many secret spots that the captains keep under wraps for all weather options. This tour is designed especially for you group’s abilities.
Leave Road Harbor and after an exhilarating 20 minute ride we arrive at the Caves on Norman Island’s Treasure point. Here your guide will give a brief description of the area and it’s part in the history of the BVI. Next we cruise to Peter Island’s Little Harbor to see the sight of the coaling station set up in the mid to late 1800’s as yellow fever had St. Thomas under quarantine. In Great Harbor we will pass over the sight of the R.M.S. Rhone’s anchor and broken chain. More on this story will be told later in the Tour.
