Great trip. Crew was great. They were funny and very professional. We had plenty of time at Baths. We did swim in and out to the boat. That was fun. Our tour was great, tons of information and history. We got to snorkel over the Rhone, which sunk in 1860 something. We had tons of time for lunch on Cooper... More

My husband and I sailed with Bad Kitty in December on the 5-Stop 4 Island Tour and had a great experience. The crew was very friendly, professional, and entertaining. They were knowledgeable about the islands and offered plenty of interesting information as well as pirate & shipwreck stories. Walking, climbing, and tunneling through the baths was a fun time and...

Booked our sunset cruise for Valentine's Day with our UNH friends from years ago. We had a wonderful evening and made many more friends that were passengers. Kara and Kevin are welcoming and gracious hosts. Great food and drink (some of the best Painkillers and Rum Punch we've had). We enjoyed it so much that we're coming back for Valentine's... More

Conveniently located out of Cruz Bay, Bad Kitty was a great way for us to tour Tortola and the other British Virgin Islands. Clearly the best way to visit these islands is from the water, and this day long charter up and around Francis Drake Channel had us in and out of a harbors and beaches. Nice combination of relaxing... More

Our first time on Bad Kitty. Couldn't have been better. 18 people on the boat which can hold 33, so plenty of room to sit and move around. Good, calm weather helped a lot- saw several whales and a large turtle, and an opportunity to snorkel at Norman island with its shipwreck. Staff - Lexie Sarah and captain Jeremy were... More

The staff is fabulous and made us feel welcome immediately. The crew moved our group through the "tour" expertly. We never felt rushed but our trip included the Baths, a stop for lunch, snorkeling, a stop at the 6th most beautiful beach, the Soggy Dollar bar (originator of the drink the Painkiller) and a history lesson of it all.

My husband and I took the Bad Kitty from St John on February 6. It was everything and more than we expected! We were served fresh island fruit and delicious banana bread (as stated on their website) and had a warm greeting from the crew as we began a wonderful day of island hopping. Captain Jeremy and the crew of... More

Calypso Charters was great! The crew was very fun-loving but organized. The itinerary covers a lot (The Baths, Jost Van Dyke, snorkeling, lunch on Cooper Island), I only wish we had had a bit more time on Jost Van Dyke or at The Baths! There were no mishaps going through customs in the BVIs. We also ordered our lunch for... More

The Bad Kitty wasn't bad...but it could've been better. The day starts at 7:30am at the dock to fill out customs paperwork. They make you take off your shoes before boarding (I would've brought fin socks/water shoes if I had known ahead of time). The floors were gross and wet since it was raining that morning. The bathroom was extremely... More

Good afternoon. We are sorry to hear that you had some issues with your trip on Bad Kitty. It is customary on any boat to take off your shoes. The Baths are the most adventurous stop on the trip. The crew does do a safety briefing on what to expect and there is the option to stay on the boat... More

My girlfriend and I travel regularly but her parents do not. We took them along with us to St Thomas. While there we wanted an overview of the BVI and Bad Kitty delivered. Captain Jeremy and his crew Kevin and Sarah showed my gf' s parents a fantastic time. Her mother was very reluctant at first but because of the... More
