Excursions depuis Jost Van Dyke

Virgin Gorda and the Baths

Tortola's smaller sister island, Virgin Gorda, boasts the British Virgin Islands' main attraction - the Baths. Board the boat at Road Harbour pier for your cruise along Sir Francis Drake Channel toward Virgin Gorda. The famous waterway has seen scores of pirates and buccaneers who once plied their profitable trade here.


Virgin Gorda

Landing at quaint Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda's main settlement, an open safari bus awaits for the short drive to the top of the Baths at Spring Bay. As you approach the area, you begin to see the characteristic boulders strewn across the arid ground that stand as reminders of the volcanic action that took place here some 70 million years ago. Follow your guide down to the amazing Baths along a narrow trail set between huge boulders on both sides.


The Baths

Along a powdery, white sand beach, giant boulders are poised on top of each other in seemingly precarious positions. Weathered by time and the elements, a series of spectacular pools and grottos have been created. The site is a natural phenomenon and never fails to amaze its visitors. Take a swim in the clear, warm water, or squeeze through narrow crevices and discover small caverns where sunlight creates cool hues. The picture below the waterline is equally fascinating with small tropical fish darting through the crystalline water. A total of about two hours is spent at the Baths.


After hiking back up, rejoin the safari bus for a scenic island drive back to the local beach side restaurant where a freshly prepared lunch is served before returning to the marina and the boat back to Jost Van Dyke.


Please note: The boat trip to Virgin Gorda is 45 minutes each way via ferry and is un-narrated. Transportation on the island is in open safari buses and is an un-narrated transfer to the Baths. The walk to the Baths requires about a 15-minute downhill/uphill hike on an uneven path. We recommend wearing beach attire under a cover-up and rubber-soled shoes. A sun hat and sunscreen are essential. Snorkel equipment can be rented at the Baths (subject to availability), or you may bring your own. The Baths are a popular destination and therefore frequently crowded

After an amazing time spent on the water fishing, return to the tender dock, hopefully with some great fishing tales to tell.
