Old boat, smell of diesel fuel was over powering at the back of the boat.
Sail Date: February 2019
Old boat, smell of diesel fuel was over powering at the back of the boat. Too many people. Promised three different stops, only went to one. He said the others were to rough. Would not recommend.

Jost Van Dyke is fantastic!
Sail Date: February 2019
Jost Van Dyke is fantastic! We took the Rebel Yell from the port. Great crew and boat. We had the 7am departure, which seemed early, but was awesome. When we arrived, the beach was empty. The beach is pristine.

CALLING ALL BEACH LOVERS! If you want to visit one of the greatest beaches in the world then take the NCL excursion “Escape to Jost Van Dyke”. It is a 45-minute catamaran ride aboard the Rebel Yell from the port in Tortola to the White Bay, Jost Van Dyke. They drop you off right by the Soggy Dollar Bar which has free beach chairs and serves the most delicious beach drink...the Painkiller. The sand is soft and fluffy. Pictures do not do this place justice. You must see it for yourself. We've been to many beaches in our travels, but this is #1 so far. The only downside is you are at the beach for just slightly over 2 hours. Rum punch is served on the ride back to port to put the exclamation point on a fantastic excursion. We were last in Jost Van Dyke in November 2016 and like others were saddened by the destruction caused by Hurricane Irma to this lovely island. We were absolutely amazed at the recovery. Don’t get me wrong, they have a long way to go but you couldn’t help but be impressed by their recovery to date. This excursion sells out very quickly. Book it as soon as it becomes available or you will miss out. Read Less

It took me HOURS of research to find out how to get to Jost Van Dyke independently. Take a cab from the port to the West End. There is nothing there. Take the ferry to Jost Van Dyke-check the times to ensure you can get there and back in time. Off the pier of the ferry, take a short cab ride to Soggy Dollar Bar. It was just fun. Beautiful place. Great painkiller drinks. Nice white sand beach. Nice time there. Read Less

Most beautiful and clean beach I have seen in the Caribbean. We took the earliest trip from the ship and we were glad we did....the sun started frying the sand and people later. Early, the Soggy Dollar Bar was the only place of the five on the beach that was smart enough to open early...they made a mint and the Painkillers are delish as advertised. It would appear that 3 or 4 should be about the max with no food. (You could tell who drank more!) When the restaurant/bar next door to Soggy Dollar finally opened, we checked out their offerings....The specials included $80 for a lobster lunch and $23 for a modest chicken lunch. Do these people understand how capitalism works? Read Less
