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!

DEEP SEA OFFSHORE SPORTFISHING CHARTERS
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 Marlin, Longbilled Spearfish, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Kingfish, Shark,B
INSHORE SPORTFISHING CHARTERS
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,Skipjacks, Blackfi
