Professionalism – Legendary Service – World Class Dive Sites – Lifetime Friends
We cater to your experience level. Most dive operators put limitations on their entire boat of divers, treating them as an aggregate group and don’t respect or cater to your individual level of experience.WHY WORRY about time, depth and finding the boat when you really just want to enjoy our spectacular coral gardens and abundant marine life! Although we prefer to lead guided dives, qualified buddy teams and photographers are welcome to explore at their own pace. We respect experienced and advanced divers… many other dive operators will place an experienced diver with a beginner in an aggregate group… placing time and depth limitations on you… however, this is not our style. We offer you the choice of DIVING THE WAY YOU WANT, but we routinely lead dives for your added safety and enjoyment unless you indicate otherwise.

For beginner and intermediate divers, our experienced Instructor and Divemaster guides will be happy to buddy up with you to make your experience more comfortable and safe. Our staff gives thorough and in depth pre-dive briefings, sets up all of your equipment for your, changes tanks between dives, helps you feel comfortable with your equipment and questions, and assure that you dive at your experience level. They are there to make your dive safe and navigate you back to the boat, so you can just enjoy the scenery.

Our staff’s priority is to our customer’s comfort and safety. We choose to be wimps (warm, intelligent, mature, professionals). We will always do our best to give you an accurate accounting of the daily diving conditions prior to leaving the dock. Occasionally the wave heights become a bit more than some divers find enjoyable. In this event, customers will be given the option to cancel the days dive without charge or obligation. Our motto is “customer’s comfort and safety first“… and we want you to be happy!
Enjoy your favorite passed time, read a book, go for a hike, or take advantage of the numerous diversions the BVI can offer.

We at Jost Van Dyke Scuba look forward to making your diving vacation a fun and memorable experience that offers you the best of the BVI underwater! We specifically cater to individuals and small groups who are looking for personal attention as well as diving freedom. “Cattle boats”are not something you will find here at Jost Van Dyke Scuba, where we have made our considerable reputation by offering the level of personalized service often lost in today’s “cut and paste” world… no overcrowding… we lead small groups on personalized scuba excursions. We commonoly hear back from guests whom dived all over the BVI on their vacation, hat we were the “most professional” and had the “highest standard of service“. Our personalized service is just one of the qualities that attracts new guests and retains our numerous friends who return year after year to dive with us. Our service has been called “legendary”!!! We take great pride in trying to achieve this “legendary service” on every dive excursion!




Ever since you were a kid, you’ve wanted to try it!We’d love to show you what you’ve been missing!

Norman Island Snorkeling Safari

Norman Island, The Caves, the Indians, and Blackbeard’s Thatch Cays

By far the most popular tour for guests visiting the BVI! We start the day by visiting the Cays of Great Thatch, this was home for the infamous Pirate, Blackbeard and is now a National Park!. This first stop is a great way to get your “toe’s wet”, here you see hundreds of tropical fish,Turtles, and Sea Birds, the water is warm, calm and shallow.

Great Thatch is an uninhabited island of the British Virgin Islands in the Caribbean. It is one of the western most islands in the Territory.

Although presently uninhabited, it was formerly occupied, and boasted a customs house and mail exchange where the mail would be delivered from Charlotte Amalie by skiff after the packet ships had called there.

There remains a significant ruin on the island, although it is extremely difficult to access as the paths are all heavily overgrown. At the property a significant civil disturbance occurred on the island in 1856 where local law enforcement officers were beaten in a smuggling dispute.

The island was formerly in private hands, but was repurchased by the Government of the Territory in September of 1997, and is now a national park.

Next we head off to Norman Island. On the way you get to see the beautiful south shores of Tortola and the north shores of St.Johns as we cruise thru the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Snorkel spot 2… the BVI’s most famous snorkel area “The Indians”! Here under water pinnacles rise up out of the ocean to create a magnificent natural reef. Here you can circumnavigate the Indians and see almost 400 species of fish and other forms of marine life.

After all the snorkeling, you most likely have worked up a appetite… good timing because the Bight of Norman Island is just  minutes away. Here we offer a stop for lunch at either Pirates on the beach, or the infamous “Willy T” floating restaurant.

After lunch we conclude the tour with snorkeling at the world famous “Treasure Island Caves”. It was here where Robert Lewis Stevenson wrote about Pirates chests of treasure being buried and hidden in these caves… it is reported that two of the three chests have since been found with one still yet to be located, so keep your eyes peeled!

This tour is excellent for Family’s and couples wanting something unique!

Fishing Charters


HALF AND FULL DAY TRIPS AVAILABLE… WITH OUR EXPERT BVI FISHERMEN… on professionally rigged Sport fishing vessels, fully documented and coast guard inspected.



It is a well known fact that the waters known by the names “World Famous North Drop” and the “Puerto Rican Trench” are some of the best sport fishing grounds on the planet!!!  The North Drop contains the second deepest ocean depth on the planet at 33,000 feet deep.  In fact, all Sport fisherman agree that from the June moon through October, these waters are the ‘Capital’ fishing grounds for the monster Atlantic Blue Marlin.   At just 11 miles away, Jost Van Dyke is the closest island to the “Corner”, where record after record has been set.  We Sportfish the North Drop on a regular basis… whether on charter or not!  We take fishing seriously and catching fish even more seriously!!!  We use all the arrows in our quiver to come up with fish:  Surface trolling, controlled depth trolling, live bait fishing, chumming, chunking, bait casting, and throwing artificials into the bait balls, on spinning gear.  We normally fish for Blue and White MarlinLongbilled SpearfishSailfishMahi MahiWahooKingfishShark,Blackfin TunaSkipjack TunaLittle TunnyBonito, and, our favorite, monster Yellowfin Tuna!!!  We can also devastate the “Fanatic Fisherman”  with the local art of night bottom fishing and deep water Grouper and Snapper fishing (where we’ve been known to hook up with SwordfishThresher and Mako Sharks).  We use PENN International Gold Reels and Penn Senators for Trolling… and you will catch fish!!!!!!!!!



Do you like to catch Tarpon?  Well, Jost Van Dyke is a ‘sleeping giant’ when it comes to these “Silver Kings”.  With massive schools of baitfish around the coast of JVD year round, we can put you on the Tarpon guaranteed!!!  We routinely snorkel/dive the bait balls and that gives us a little advantage to say the least… to snorkel for 10 minutes in a bait school and see only five Tarpon over 80 lbs is a really bad day.  Light tackle spinning gear is what we use:Shimano Spheros 5000FA, Penn 5500SS, Shimano Thunnus 16000… so you are sure to have your hands full and get a great fight every time you hook up. Shooting for the Tarpon we also catch Yellowtail Snapper, Koran, and Hardnose.  We also have some Bonefish and Snook in the flats off the East End to give the inshore Sport fisherman a full bag of fun!  When the bait moves a few hundred feet off the coast, we shoot for the Bonitos,SkipjacksBlackfin, and Little Tunnys, to keep the action going. We offer 2 hour and Half Day Inshore Sportfishing Excursions… and Fly-fisherman are WELCOME here!
