Ride was absolutely...
Christina_P
, Jul 2022
Ride was absolutely beautiful, crew was very energetic and Knowledgeable with also keeping safety a priority. Katie helped me when I started to feel a bit woosy with sprite and club sofa. Serena was amazing captain, Jackson was fun and gave us some tattoos. The only thing I would have changed was more cruising type music. It was very club like to me but really just preference not a complaint whatsoever

Very nice staff. Great seating with plenty of shade and a decent restroom. The snorkle trip and beach were nice. Snorkle time short. Waiting and boarding process very long in direct sun on a hot wooden pier.

Nice Day on the Water
Mark_B

Very good catamaran Cruise. Snorkeling was OK, coral and turtle abundance was marginal but present. Guide was exceptional, informational gained about sea life in area made this part of the excursion. Crew onboard were excellent - personality and service were outstanding. I like carribean and rock music, but their choice in pre-recorded music (some local island theme?) did not influence me to party or dance (nor others onboard). Seemed like the captains choice not catered to the guests. Liked being under sail. Island was OK, but not scenic. MAB

The VI Cat is an excellent excursion! Book with confidence! Captain Serena was great! The crew comprised of Mike, Fernando, and new hire Jackson. The crew was absolutely friendly and welcoming. Water was offered while we drove out to Buck Island to snorkel at Turtle Cove. The turtles are super friendly and come up for air every 10 minutes! You get a guided tour by Mike in the water for about 30 minutes and can free roam with the Turtles or a nearby coral reef for another 30 minutes. Trust me, you’ll feel whipped by the end of the hour. You never go without a drink while cruising to Honey Moon beach. Jackson and Fernando are excellent bar tenders! Painkillers are unlimited and I never had an empty cup. Honeymoon beach was awesome! Super calm beach, with a restaurant called “The Dinghy” it’s super busy with all the boats unloading on the beach, so head there quickly and order. We had plenty of time to eat, swim by the boat, and then head back on for more drinks on the ride back to the Marriott. The crew sells T-Shirts! They take Venmo and Cash. We picked some up as the design of the Dri-fit long sleeve was too cool to pass up. Would definitely book another excursion with The VI Cat on return trip to the island! #TheVICat

Budget trip, nothing special
David_W
, Dec 2021
The boat was fine and the snorkeling stop was good. However the “snacks” were chips and salsa. The big negative was that 2.5 hours was simply stopping at Honeymoon beach and let us swim in for lunch. The boat stayed 100 yards offshore with a dingy bringing a few people and small bags we wanted to keep dry. They said they would bring the boat closer as soon as a couple of boats cleared out (they never did even though the other boats cleared out). They warned us that lunch service at the beach shack was slow and to order early. We decided to eat the granola bars my wife packed. The major issue was ALL the crew stayed onboard along with the dingy so there was no way for us to go back to the boat early. They should have had a crew member and dingy at the beach in case someone wanted to go back. If you forgot something or wanted to get back to the boat you were screwed. No way to even contact the crew if there was an urgent need to do so. They waited two hours and then came ashore. We put our bag on the dingy and swam back, but most people waited for a ride. This seemed to surprise the crew and they spent another 30 minutes shuttling back and forth to get people 5-6 at a time. After everyone was onboard we motored back to the dock quickly, arriving 30 minutes late. We found out from people who did order lunch at the beach waited 90 minutes and others did not get their food at all! Again, the boat was fine and the snorkel stop was good. Not well planned out at all, though for a 6 hour trip. It was a good 3 hour trip but awkwardly stretched into 6 with 2.5 basically on your own.

Heather_S

Best part…Definitely swimming with the little sea turtle…Coraline was her name I think. The second stop I saw a stingray while walking through the water. The only thing I could think that would make this trip better would have more time swimming with the sea turtles. I feel like an hour was not enough

This was an amazing excursion. Captain Joe and his crew Christian and Katie were all great. Very knowledgeable about the area and extremely accommodating to all guests. I would highly recommend this. The spots that we visited were both beautiful and safe. Hands down one of the best excisions I have ever been on.

Thank you for your review. The Cat does its best to insure a safe and fun trip. Food service is at Honeymoon Beach Water Island. You purchase from the vendor. Alcoholic beverage service on-boar is after all in water activities are concluded. Other beverages are always available.

Awesome experience. The entire crew of the VI Cat made the day one to remember and made me feel normal and extremely safe given the current environment. The drinks are a heavy pour and they made sure to treat you well. 10/10 would recommend.
