The Baths are considered one of the natural miracles of the world. Definitely a must see!
The Baths National Park is surrounded by several bouldery beaches.
Snorkelling around the boulders is quite an experience.
This is a popular tour for couples and families who want to see more of the BVI in one day than most people do in their entire vacation. From west end Tortola we start with a cruise to Norman Island where you can snorkel ‘The Caves’ or ‘The Indians’ followed by a cruise through the Bight. We then power on to Peter Island where we anchor in 5’ of crystal clear water in Honeymoon Beach and you can snorkel and hopefully see the resident sea turtles and white spotted stingrays, swim or stroll the beautiful white sand beach. After this we head to Cooper Island (passing Dead Chest and Salt Island en route) where you can snorkel Cistern Point which has a vibrant reef with many species of colourful fish and beautiful coral. We then call on Cooper Island Beach Club where you can enjoy an excellent lunch, their micro-brewed beers, visit their rum bar, savour their coffee and home-made ice cream in the coffee shop, pick up a gift in their lovely boutique or simply relax on the beautiful beach.
We then power onto ‘The Baths’ in Virgin Gorda which are awe inspiring as there are few places in the world so uniquely stunning. They are made up of huge geological boulders with pools of clear water nestled between them. You can snorkel the clear turquoise water, explore the trails between the boulders or simply chill and take in the amazing beauty.
Our last stop before we head home will be the spectacular Monkey Point on Guana Island, which provides amazing snorkeling and breath-taking scenery.
We begin our tour with a cruise to Norman Island, where you can snorkel ‘The Caves’ or the neighbouring ‘Indians’. Norman Island which was the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel ‘Treasure Island’. Explore the three water level caves and search for treasure which was last found in 1915. The caves are stunning and atmospheric with schools of Yellowtail Jacks and Sergeant Majors as you snorkel the calm, crystal clear water. You will also see lots of orange cup coral and red sponge covering the walls of the caves. Angelfish Reef off Norman is good place to glimpse sea turtles. The Bight and Kelly’s Cove also offer exceptional snorkeling.
After lunch we have gentle cruise to Deadman’s Bay which is the largest beach on Peter Island. It is one of the most stunning beaches in the BVI with a mile long powdery white sand and turquoise water which is ideal for snorkeling, sun-bathing or strolling in the shade of the palm trees. We will anchor in 5ft crystal clear water and you can snorkel and hopefully see the resident sea turtles and white spotted stingrays.
Enjoy Lunch at Cooper Island Beach Club which is the BVIs most premier eco-resorts. Here you will enjoy a nice lunch, check out their Rum Bar (which has the largest selection of rum in the BVI), their micro-brewery, boutique, coffee shop and artisan ice cream. Lunch costs not included in price.
After lunch we have a scenic boat ride to The Baths in Virgin Gorda passing Ginger, Round Rock and Fallen Jerusalem en-route. They are the most iconic attraction in the Virgin Islands. Your captain will drop you off at Devil’s Bay and allow you to take some time to explore the hidden pools and enormous volcanic boulders. After you walk the trail your boat will be waiting outside the swim zone at The Baths.
