Charter cruise from St John to Jost Van Dyke..is it worth it?

Jump to last reply

Hello! Has anyone out there vacationed on St John and then taken a charter over to Jost Van Dyke? I would like to know if it's worth it? We're not party boaters (we are in our 50's) so we'd want a more relaxed 6 passenger sail or cat to take us over, but it's not cheap. It's approx. 160.00 pp plus we pay for lunch and drinks, then customs, and they want you to tip on top of that...so for 3 of us we're talking 600.00+ for a day trip! It sounds wonderful, but I'm thinking I'm already on St John, how could Jost Van Dyke be better than St john? Perhaps it's a better idea to spend the money on a couple of half day cruises at St John (Coral bay, ideas) and snorkel somewhere we couldn't get to by land? Some perspective from those more experienced than I would be much appreciated!
Thank you
