Board a comfortable and fast two-deck motor catamaran at a nearby marina and enjoy an approximately 45-minute cruise to Jost Van Dyke, passing Peter Island, Norman Island and St. John (USVI). Arrive at White Bay, one of the BVI's most magnificent beaches, and swim ashore to find yourself in paradise - crystal-clear blue waters lapping at a picture-perfect white-sand beach fringed by palm trees. Once ashore, visit the world-famous Soggy Dollar Bar, voted Best Beach Bar in the Caribbean for the third year running. Here you can enjoy a refreshing 'Painkiller', a famous BVI cocktail invented here at the Soggy Dollar Bar. Stroll along the beach, swim in the turquoise warm waters or simply sit back and soak up some sun before heading back to the boat and returning to Tortola.
Note: Wear your swimsuit and bring a towel. Participants must be in good physical condition and able to swim as there is no dock at White Bay. A kayak will be available to transport your personal belongings to shore.

DONT MISS OUT ON THIS ONE
This is definitely an excursion that you will not want to miss. I've been there a couple of times and have already booked it for the next cruise in October.
If you do any excursion this is the one you need to do, The swim in is only about a minute in 5-6 feet of water. Once on the beach you will think you are in heaven. warm breeze, dellcious Painkiller, blue blue water. You'll be very sorry if you don't do this excursion.

stunning views from the beach
This was one of the BEST excursions we've taken -- so much fun, very relaxing, and it's a unique place to go. The ride to the island offered beautiful scenery! I was a little nervous about swimming to shore, but it's really a very short distance and the water is crystal-clear. They made sure our stuff made it to shore dry! The beach was uncrowded, quiet, and beautiful with white sand and bright turquoise water. The views were truly stunning. The beach bars were really fun - if you have time, visit them all! (Some will give you the chair rental for free if you buy a drink). We really enjoyed the Soggy Dollar Bar and the "Painkiller" (be careful though -- they are surprisingly strong). They also have a little shop with great t-shirts. I do not recommend this trip for young children, as it seems more catered to adults with the beach bar scene. If you are looking to relax in paradise, soak up the sun, and enjoy the local drinks, you will love this excursion!

Super Beach Excursion
Wonderful day at the beach! Short walk through about 4' of water to shore. Great bars! Uncrowded Beach. Good excursion for partiers or just those who like a nice beach.
