Private Fast Power Catamaran. Full or Half Day for Beach Hopping, Snorkel & Swim

23 reviews
Explore the Virgin Islands in style aboard MV Poseidon- our brand new 36 ft. TwinVee Ocean Cat. The TwinVee is known for its speed and stability while still maintaining comfort allowing guests to stay dry. It truly is the most comfortable powerboat on the island. MV Poseidon has everything you need for a PRIVATE charter. Swim with the turtles, see amazing fish and colorful coral using our brand new snorkel equipment. Or, simply step off of MV Poseidon onto the beach for a libation at Soggy Dollar, Foxy's, Margaritaville, Lime Out or any of the many beach bars in the islands. Your PRIVATE charter includes all U.S. national park fees, U.S. mooring permits, water, ice, soda and beer. <br><br>MV Poseidon features a FUSION stereo to listen to your favorite tunes. Its low draft and transom ladder allows us to drop you within a few feet of the beach. This is the price for the entire boat. You can design your own custom itinerary.
US$695.00 per adult

We visited in November, only to find the museum closed for hurricane damage repair with the prospect of reopening 'in a month or so'. The building can be seen from Waterfront Drive in Road Town, located directly opposite Elizabeth Park.

Visited the Museum as part of a tour of Tortola and were shown around by an ex-pat gentleman who told us about the history of the house and its distinguished visitors in the past, including Princess Margaret. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the wall murals look so fresh in the dining room. I loved the stamp collection and the views from the top of the house overlooking the waterfront. We were going to meet the present governor on the tour but he was late for a meeting so it was just a quick wave and a hello as he left from his office close by. Well worth a visit to experience some of the islands history.

We visited on a cruise ship and did our own walking tour. Found this beautiful old house where Queen Elizabeth had visited in 1966 and 1977, staying on the Royal Yacht Britannia in the bay, but meeting her people in this building which was then Government House. Lots of pictures and colonial history here! Loved it.

This house is a beautiful piece of British history and well worth a stop at between visiting the beach. Even though Princess Margaret was the only royal to stay here there are tons of pictures of the queen also. There is also a room here with a huge stamp collection. It is the only US stamp to have the head of the queen on it.

We visited the museum as part of a tour from our cruise ship, the guide was most informative and gave us an insight into the history of the house and this lovely island.
