Jost Van Dyke

Jost Van Dyke – “The Bare-Foot Island”

Probably One Love Charter’s favorite island as owners Joe and Amanda Trattner chose this destination for their wedding where they shared and basked in its charm with all family and friends! The island still has some old Caribbean charm with certain places that make you feel like you’ve arrived in the early 1900’s. A St. Thomas boat rental aboard one of our boats to this enchanting place will make you feel as if you’ve gone back in time and are experiencing a story that parallels Johnny Depp – The Rum Diaries! White sand beaches everywhere, a shack that serves food, beer, and painkillers at every turn, and probably the quintessential island paradise that makes Instagram followers tap the heart button as if their own pulse relied on it!

Our Top Spots For a Jost Van Dyke Boat Trip:

First, Stop at Great Harbor to check in at customs, visit the one-room jail, the fire house that has one truck with a deflated tire, and world famous Foxy’s Bar that was once ranked top 3 spots in the world to spend New Year’s Eve! As soon as the boat reaches the dock you’ll have zero choice but to pull your cameras out and start snapping pic that is sure to make your family, friend, and co-workers back in the states want to defriend you on all social media platforms!

Second, Let us head to Sandy Spit off the far east end of the island that has played host to numerous Corona commercials due to its sheer beauty and lone palm tree. Here you can jump off the boat into the most turquoise of waters, snorkel a reef, enjoy a drink in the sand, float in the water with a pool noodle, and laugh with each other about what happened the night before….. Don’t worry, there won’t be many people around to hear your stories!

Third, pull anchor and head to Sydney’s Peace and Love Lobster Shack! This is our diamond in the rough that many other companies don’t even know exist! You’ll be able to see your lobster pulled right out of a trap that’s built into the dock where we tie the boat and meet our friend Strawberry who runs the joint. She lets you hop behind the bar to pour your own drinks with an honor bar system still in place, and will make sure her staff makes you the best meal that can be found in all of the British Virgin Islands.

Last, But not least your boat rental must make a stop at world famous Soggy Dollar Bar to enjoy a painkiller cocktail! This delicious concoction originated right here and has tried to be duplicated by all other beach bars with ZERO success. It is Joe Seniors favorite place on the planet, and we think you’ll enjoy it too.

Also along the way…..

Carvel Rock is a great little spot that can only be explored by boat. It’s a great place to snorkel, with visibility well over 60 feet on a clear day, and it’s the perfect spot to do a bit of cliff diving!
