Virgin Islands Boat Charters-Pirate’s Paradise Adventures
Rates & Booking
While it’s hard to put a price on paradise…we’ll try! Our powerboat is captained by a USCG Licensed Captain, who also serves as your tour guide. Together, they’ll take you to the best the Virgin Islands have to offer. You also get complimentary use of our snorkel gear and a cooler with ice and water. You are welcome to bring any drinks or food with you. Enjoy a comfortable ride!

*Subject to availability.
+Boat charter prices and fees with other charter companies will vary.
Captain’s Fee and Gratuities:
The captain’s fee is $150 for the day, payable directly to the captain, in cash, on the day of the trip. Tipping of the Captain for outstanding service is greatly appreciated. A common tip for great service is 15%-20% of your total boat rental.
BVI Customs Fees:
When going into the BVIs, we must clear customs. This usually takes about 20 minutes. The captain will help you with the paperwork and will walk it through customs. EVERYONE, NO MATTER THE AGE, WILL NEED A VALID PASSPORT. The international travel fee is $65.00 per person (cash) which also includes the park fee.
We leave the dock for your trip with a full tank of fuel. At the end of the trip, you will be responsible for filling it up again. Fuel in the islands is more expensive in the states, and the price per gallon can fluctuate day to day. The amount of gas you will use on your trip varies greatly with the amount of people on the boat, weather conditions, cost of fuel on the day of your trip, etc. As a guide, the gas expense on an average trip around the USVIs could be $200-$250. A trip that includes The Baths could be an additional $50-$100 in fuel, and more if you’re fighting rough waters. Again, these are just estimates–your costs may vary. Payment must be made directly to the fuel dock at the time the boat is refueled. You may pay this portion in cash or by credit card.

We had the best time sailing around the BVI's with Captain Arran. The entire day was full of amazing island scenery and the most beautiful beaches in the world. Our captain was so friendly and fun and made sure we had an incredible time. Highly recommended.TripAdvisor Member
We did this trip last November. It was great. The kids in our party were 9 and 13. We gave Arran a list of places that were must sees and let him pick the snorkeling spots. The elders on the trip were my husband and self, both 65. We went to the caves, Willie Ts, soggy dollar bar, stopped in tortola.TripAdvisor Member
Just got back yesterday from a terrific day on Pirates Paradise Adventures. Our captain for the day was Arran and he was wonderful. He has lived here 30 years and knows St. Thomas, St. John and the British Virgin Islands like the back of his hand. The day was magnificent this is a can't miss! Would go again in a minute.TripAdvisor Member
