Tortola Norman/Jost Van Dyke tour well worth it

There are 4 in my family, daughter 16, son 20, my wife and I (50+). The cost of this tour was just a tad higher than a similar ship tour, but this one was well worth it. We... read more

There are 4 in my family, daughter 16, son 20, my wife and I (50+). The cost of this tour was just a tad higher than a similar ship tour, but this one was well worth it. We arrived at the snorkeling spot about 30 minutes before the ship tour, and left a little later. The snorkeling was good. The... More

Had a blast. Easy pickup on dock. Roomy cameraman for our group.I didn't eat lunch at the restaurant so I can't comment on the food. Capt Joe was very nice and knowledgeable. I'd definitely do it again!

Our group of 8 booked about a tour visiting Norman Island / Jost Van Dyke, and despite some challenging weather conditions Joe made it an awesome day for everyone and we all had a blast. His 36' powered catamaran had no problem with the larger than normal seas, and he was able to give accurate instructions for everyone to be... More

Excellent adventure to The Indians for snorkeling followed by a few hours on Jost Van Dyke. Joe is an experienced captain who took great care of us. Skip the cruise ship tours and book your own with Patouche Charters! SUCH a better experience. Only 8 people on our boat for the day. Highly recommend!

What a fabulous day. We were met by captain Joe as we left the Norwegian Escape. We were informed we were the only ones on the day's charter so we had a private boat. After a semi rough ride (captain Joe did a great job keeping it as easy going as possible but still rough) to Virgin Gorda we were... More

Best was Ever to spend your day. From our first contact with Joe via email through booking and an absolutely stellar day- everything was Perfect. He truly loves showing you around and is totally safety conscious. We were in Tortola for a cruise day off the Disney Fantasy along with some fellow passengers, very easy to find him, just follow...

I initially found out about Patouche Tours on the Disboards.website. I have since used Patouche 2 years in a row. Our visit to Torotola was one of the highlights of our Disney Fantasy cruise each time. We have been on both of Joe's ships, and enjoyed them thoroughly. We were a group of 8 with kids, and we saw plentiful... More

My husband and I sailed from Virgin Gorda to Cooper Island, stopping for snorkeling along the way. Captain Joe was an amazing, informative tour guy. We really enjoyed our day sailing and would highly recommend his charter to others. We will look him up again when we are in the BVI! Thanks for an amazing day Captain Joe! Mike &... More

We took a boat with 20 of our friends for a 40th birthday! We sailed for a day and it was an amazing experience. Captain Joe was amazing, told us everything we needed to know about the islands and kept the beer ice cold! He was very helpful with snorkeling and securing our lunch prior to our arrival at Cooper... More

My wife and I spent a day with Patouche Charters while vacationing over the holidays. Captain Joe gave us a great history of the islands and made sure we were very comfortable for the whole trip. We snorkels, visited Cooper Island Beach Club, and explored the Baths. The most notable detail was that we were the only two customers that... More
