The Baths at Virgin Gorda

Going to Saint John for vacation. Interested in taking a day trip to the Baths at Virgin Gorda. Is it worth it or not? Any info would be helpful. Thanks, Marlene

Hi Marci,
We are leaving for St. Thomas on Saturday the 31st. There are 4 of us taking a sailboat over there to the BVI and the Baths. We are sailing on Jim's Jester sailboat. His website is www.sailjesters.com
We have space for 2 more if you would like an adventure for the first time like us.
take care
Lisa

The baths are a truely unique experience and well worth it!! If you plan to climb the rocks at the Baths, it can be a bit strenuous. Everyone may not be up to the challenge. Ropes and ladders help you navigate.
Smith's ferry may still offer a package which includes a tour of Tortola, lunch and a few hours at the Baths. You can also plan the trip yourself on the Inter Island ferry - planning connections are a little more difficult. You will need ID to clear customs in the BVI. Also, plan on a $15 per person departure tax to leave. It is an ALL DAY EVENT. We really enjoyed it! We would like to do it again. Approx cost $100 per person.
However, a private sail would probably be more direct so...I'd check into the offer LisaLU made!! Hope you all have a great time!

you MUST MUST MUST go to the baths! it is absolutely beautiful and quite unique. great snorkeling thru the huge rocks. also, there is a secluded little beach right before you get to the main entrance to the baths. worth a peek. by chance, if you're staying at caneel bay in st. john, they have a ferry to the baths to their sister resort, little dix bay.

We spent time on St. John, Tortola and Virgin Gorda in November/December. The ferry services are great - sit up top and enjoy the ride. The Baths were well worth it. Explore the caves and head on down the beach to Devils Bay. There's a couple different publications that list what days the cruise ships are in Tortola. Pick a day when they are NOT there. Have fun.
