Blue Water Excursions

Blue Water Excursions

The Bitter End Crew can’t wait to show you the best of the BVI.

The British Virgin Islands are home to many historic, world-renowned sites: the Baths, the Coral Gardens and Anegada. But they’re also home to many little-known secrets that only a local can reveal. We offer regular excursions on vessels from our premium fleet to these outposts, introducing guests to the Caribbean’s brilliant sites and hidden treasures. So hop aboard one of our snorkeling, beachcombing or sightseeing excursions!

Excursions are included for those guests enjoying Bitter End’s BEYC’s Classic Escape.

Featured Excursions

The Baths

Discover this famous geological wonder both above and under sea. Explore Devil’s Bay Beach and navigate the cave maze to reach the Top of the Baths, or spend your time snorkeling in the crystal-clear pools of the area’s caves and grottoes. Sample a bit of a both for a fully immersive experience. All guests enjoy lunch aboard the excursion boat.

Anegada

Known for miles of white sand beaches, Anegada (and adjoining Horseshoe Reef) is the largest barrier coral atoll in the Caribbean. More than 300 boats have wrecked along Anegada’s coast, but they now provide the perfect foundation for coral growth and fish hideouts. Ideal snorkeling conditions and limitless beachcombing opportunities await. All guests enjoy lunch ashore–including world famous Anegada Lobster.

Best of the BVI

Embrace the Caribbean spirit and join local legend Captain Kinto for the ultimate day tour of the BVIs. Incredible snorkeling awaits you at The Caves on Norman Island and at everyone’s favorite, The Indians. Along the way, Bitter End’s expert mates will share stories and help you catch a glimpse of almost all the BVI islands. Finish the tour at Pirate’s Bight and enjoy an ice cold drink on the very same island rumored to have buried pirate treasure.

The Coral Gardens at Great Dog Island Snorkel

Recognized as a national park and bird sanctuary, the Coral Gardens at Great Dog Island offer amazing coral formations–some up to eight feet tall! The area also attracts a variety of fish, including pufferfish, that are sure to delight snorkelers. All guests enjoy lunch aboard the excursion boat.

Daily Snorkel

Led by our expert captains, our daily snorkel trips explore any of the incredible areas closer to Bitter End’s shore. Discover Eustatia Reef, the Invisibles, Cactus Point, Colquhoun Reef and more. A regular trip takes just over an hour, or embark on a super snorkel to explore three different areas in one outing.

Solo Snorkel

Have some experience and want to explore on your own? We encourage our guests to pick up our Bitter End picnic lunch, take one of our 11-foot Boston Whalers and adventure to the nearby islands. Our Watersports Center can provide a map to help you chart your outing–simply stop by for insights as to the best snorkel spots and beaches in the area.

Sunset Sail

Join your fellow resort guests as we chase the sunset down the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Ply the waters of North Sound in search of the elusive “green flash” in our sporty 48-foot catamaran, Paranda. The spectacular views and adventurous fun are enhanced by whale, turtle and dolphin sightings most times of the year.
