Owner description: Stormy Pirates Charters offers personalized boat trips to the British and US Virgin Islands. Our Coast Guard Inspected Vessels are 42' Power Cruisers that offer the perfect amount or shade and comfort without the crowds associated with some of the larger companies. Our boats take a maximum of 12 passengers, so the tours are more personalized and not as rushed as when are there many more passengers. We specialize in guided tours off the beaten paths around The Baths on Virgin Gorda, Fun Days on Jost Van Dyke and exotic snorkeling locations in the USVI. Our crews are local and the business is family owned and operated. The owners are actively involved and live on the island. If you would prefer a leisurely sail we also offer day sails aboard a 40' catamaran sailboat. The sailboat stays in USVI waters and focuses on sailing and snorkeling trips. We have the boat trip you are looking for. Enjoy a boat day, your way!!

Really enjoyed the day going over to Jost. Megan and Jeremy are a fantastic crew, the drinks and entertainment were great, they were very quick to refill your cup if needed and very informative. The group on the boat that day was very friendly with each other which always makes a difference. Quality Boat Trip!! PS thanks to the owner for only charging us the deposit for the guest that missed out.

We spent the day snorkeling various bays around St. John’s and St. Thomas. Captain Meagan and first mate Jeremy are excellent hosts in addition to being a skilled crew, adjusting the trip to the desires of the group of 8 on board of what ch we were 5. They entertained with local history. The crew ordered our lunch at the Pizza Boat. It was delivered on a dinghy, a first for us. The pizza was pretty good too.

We have done this trip for the last few years. It remains a favorite part of our annual trip to the Virgin Islands. Try it. I believe you will love it..

We took a day charter on Pirates Penny- what an awesome experience! Rich and Kristie and Tyler handled everything perfectly and professionally for us- checking in to customs, providing cold drinks and showing us the beautiful sights of Jost Van Dyke - i highly recommend them! ❤️

SOOOOOO MUCH FUN with this group!!! It was our last day on St. Thomas and we were able to get a day trip on Pirate's Penny headed to Jost Van Dyke! We made a pit stop at some local friends of theirs to drop off some much needed (after hurricane) building materials. It was heartwarming to see such care and concern for the locals. That in itself was a bonus for us! We spent the rest of the day at White Bay which was so perfect! Rich and Kristie were very friendly, professional and made our last day in paradise AMAZING!~! Definately give them a call!
