Best Day Boat Charter For Physically Impaired

Most people don’t realize that over sixty stunning islands make up the U.S. and British Virgin Islands and all are within a few minutes of each other by powerboat. Calm, waveless waters, colorful corals and tropical fish, endless blue sky and the sun’s warmth make the Virgin Islands the world’s most perfect place to swim and snorkel, but many people never venture past the Virgin Islands’ largest cruise ship port of St. Thomas because they aren’t aware of all the other islands that lay just a stone’s throw offshore.

Pirates Paradise Adventures Day Boat Charter Virgin IslandsAnother reason many people only visit St. Thomas is that you need a day boat charter to visit the other islands, and many fear that physical ailments like a bad back, extra weight or issues associated with aging will keep them from being able to board, ride and enjoy the day boat charter trip. It’s true that boating requires a certain level of physical ability, but a new day boat charter company based in St. Thomas is making it possible–and fun–for people with physical limitations to enjoy the beauty of the islands.

Fully upholstered chaise lounge seating on Red Beard Pirate's Paradise Adventures Virgin Islands“I’ve owned boats for years,” said owner Brian Woeller, “but my parents couldn’t spend the day on the water with us because my Mom has a lower back problem and my Dad has problems with balance, so they didn’t feel comfortable getting on a boat. When we started Pirate’s Paradise Adventures, we chose boats that would eliminate these issues for older folks, or those who have physical limitations. With our boats Red Beard and Black Beard, the whole family can spend the day touring the islands and everyone can enjoy their St. Thomas boat rental in comfort.”

What makes a day boat charter with Pirate’s Paradise Adventures so different–and the only real choice for anyone with a physical ailment–is the layout of their boats, Red Beard and Black Beard. For starters, every seat on the boats is fully upholstered, and there are even full body chaise lounge seats where you can put your feet up and take pressure off your lower back, hips, knees and feet. Riding on fully upholstered chaise lounge seating provides a very comfortable, more ergonomically friendly option, and there’s even shaded seating should you choose to stay out of the direct sun.

The boats also features a step that is almost level with the dock for easy entry and exit. No need to throw your leg over the side of the boat or climb across the seats. On Red Beard or Black Beard, you simply step on the rear deck and walk into the boat, with no climbing. Red Beard and Black Bears are also a little wider than most boats, improving stability on the water and at the dock.Red-Beard-back-shot

Getting in and out of the water is much easier as well. Our boats feature swim steps where you can sit comfortably and put on your snorkel gear and then gently drop into the water. When its time to come back onto the boat, very sturdy ladders and built-in hand holds support your weight, offering a much easier and fluid exit from the water.

In addition, both boats have a refrigerator or cooler, sink, freshwater shower and stereo, so when everyone is comfortably seated, the fun begins!

If you’re planning a visit to the Virgin Islands with family or friends that have some physical challenges, do research on the kind of boats available so that everyone is safe and comfortable on their St Thomas day boat charter. The worst thing you can do, besides missing the chance to see this stunning collection of islands, is to choose a day boat charter company that doesn’t cater to the needs of your group.
